Because this is Slashdot! We're full of mentally enlightened people! Why have pity for people who are mostly uneducated and a product of their upbringing? I mean, if they're third-worlders, that's one thing. However, if you're in America it's because you're some backwoods religious crank who deserves to be locked away forever. It's their fault after all.

I wish I had mod points today. Excellent response.

And while I'm a big fan of Ron Paul, I can't say I'm ever thrilled when I hear things like "gold and silver are the only real money" because it's just dumb. "Value" is in the eye of the beholder and all a government has to do to give something "value" is made it acceptable for taxes. At that moment, it has value and can be traded.

As I like to ask all the gold freaks, "What happens when we can make gold ourselves? How does your system work then?" And I ask because it's going to happen.

I live in Las Vegas and have made plenty of trips to Northern Nevada, and Northern and Southern California. While I am personally a T-Mobile subscriber, the people on the road trips that have the best and most consistant signal are the Verizon guys.

There's still a lot of dead space around here so... that's life.

Comment Re:GMO Crops are OK? Whatever (Score 1) 571

Even if they did cross breed peas and fireflies, who cares? Genes are genes. All "nature" has been doing is genetic engineering. Nature doesn't "intend" for anything so human meddling—which appears to be our genetic predisposition—is perfectly "natural."

My only issue with genetically engineered food is the patent bullshit that goes with it.
