Hungry for donuts? Need detergent to get donut grease out of your favorite T-shirt?

And you'll also need coffee, and the latest miracle drug to treat obesity. Hey, can we check your insulin levels while we're at it? You already gave us access to your brain, so looking into something as innocent as the level of a hormone shouldn't be an issue, right?

Is it just me, or isn't my typing this with my fingers "typing by brain"?

No, it's typing with muscular peripherals that are connected to your brain via UPPNCP (universal point-to-point neural connection protocol).

Just imagine what happens if either the peripheral is not working correctly or the UPPNCP connection is faulty or severed. Your brain may still want to type, but it can't.

e.g. during an interview, give them a laptop with a terminal, and ask them to write a program to read in a number, and output a "yes" or "no" answer depending on whether the number is prime----95% of the folks you interview would flunk that (in any language).

You want to hire the one person that asks what range these numbers occupy.

Erdogan did not run as a dictator.

Most dictators that turned democracies into dictatorships didn't run as dictators. It just happened that they needed all that power (legislative and judicial in addition to their executive powers) to keep country xyz safe and make it great (again).

There's basically a book on how to do this.
