Corporations own Trump too. (in June, Trump got $51 million in donations, and loaned his campaign $3.8 million.... as a loan, he expects donations to pay back those loans)
Until Citizens United is revoked, all candidates have to suck up to corporations to have a chance in elections.
Common man, be nice. I know we're anonymous here, but there's a human on the other side.
What if "what I want" is to be able to visit the sites that are linking to a YouTube video I'm watching. Today I can't easily do that because YouTube doesn't want me leaving YouTube.
true surround sound headset / speakers?
We already have that — binaural recordings work with normal stereo headphones. You only have two ears, so you only need two speakers.
There's something called Dolby Headphone, but all that does is mix 5.1 channels down to 2 channels in a fancy way, and it's essentially a software function that if implemented in the phone, can work with any stereo headphones.
... I just mind the part where its illegal to run a competing service.

As the subject of the article, I entirely agree. Life is very precious, and there is always someone who loves you and who would be devastated if you weren't there. If something good can come of it, then it's this: suicide is most definitely not an answer. I was most definitely not in my right mind when I was having those thoughts, and I'm happy I'm still around

Malaria has been around for tens of thousands of years, so it reached a stable plateau. The risk with a new disease is that it could take too long to understand how it's transmitted and how to prevent transmission.
Quarantine isn't a guarantee, as seen by the two health care workers who contracted Ebola in Texas when caring for a patient.
The summary is misleading. No article mentions extinctions due to climate change. A huge temperature change would cause migration towards the poles, and may cut food supply and kill some people, but not all.
The article that mentions the 10% figure (The Atlantic article) says that a pandemic is the most likely to cause extinction, eg. the 521AD plague killed 13 to 17% of the world's population. But that didn't make it into the sensational summary.
Never let someone who says it cannot be done interrupt the person who is doing it.
