People game the system in all sorts of ways. Liberals just use government to do it, doesn't make it any better.
Yes, physical size allows for larger cranial volume which is directly linked to intelligence across all primates.
Is it? You do not cite anything to support this claim... At best, the notion is controversial...
This directly allows for greater intelligence later.
So, whales are smarter than us? Men — smarter than women?
As someone who is in charge of printer services, and google cloud print and such for 15000 users, I can assure you that my goal is to be "Paper Less" as fast as possible. It is an ongoing goal, and hence it isn't "paperless". There are times people still need hard copies, but getting people to print less has to be a sustained effort to educate people on alternatives.
That being said, most teachers still want hard copy versions of student work, because it is faster and easier to grade 30 assignments on paper than it is to do so on digital, but only if you ignore having to haul those papers around to and from schools, passing the assignments out, collecting them, and giving back the graded versions etc etc.
It is all about perception, they don't count certain aspects against their "grading" time, because of the disconnect between managing the assignments and grading them.
I actually saw something on this about a year or so ago, where a movie gave a DVD or Digital Download of the movie you were seeing as part of the ticket, and sold the tickets at a slight premium over normal. From what I recall, it worked very well, and ended up making the movie theater much better profits than Theater and expected DVD/Digital sales of similar movies.
The whole point is that it was quickly shot down because it still wasn't "enough" money. They want Piracy. They need it to justify screwing their existing customers.
Probably should have done it sooner.
I am half convinced that the three Es aren't intentional, but rather the result of really bad management decisions.
Any significant level of incompetence, is indistinguishable from malice. (apologies to Arthur C Clarke)
In humans brain development is directly tied to prenatal development.
Your original claim was about size, not the more amorphous "development".
Are you equating size with development?
Larger humans is a good thing
Please, elaborate — how is it a "good thing"? I'll admit, that it is nicer to be relatively tall — taller (Napoleon once said: longer) than others. But why is it desirable for humanity to raise the average height?
it indicates greater development
Are giraffes "greater developed" than humans or even gazelles?
will likely be key to our self-direct evolution as masters of both Earth and the galaxy
The key to both will be intelligence and technology. A larger personal body-size is more likely do be an impediment than advantage — you'll need bigger spaceships carrying more supplies. And to what end? To be able to take on some alien savage in hand-to-hand combat — instead of using a weapon?
The flea-bitten bastards of Pizarro conquered the Inca not because they were bigger — he was, but his crew weren't. Cortes was, apparently, shorter than Montesuma as well. But the invaders had firearms...
Researchers estimate cases where the baby cannot fit down the birth canal have increased from 30 in 1,000 in the 1960s to 36 in 1,000 births today
It may be a fascinating field of study, but there are no practical conclusions to make.
What are you going to do — ban the C-sections and have these additional 6+ per mille of children die during birth (possibly taking moms with them)?
For better or worse, humans can't be treated like poodles, where those deviating from the set standards are neutered...
It's the old-school definition
Which you would not cite despite an explicit request...
the definition one uses to become or remain wealthy.
Citing definitions rarely makes one wealthy. Given your cavalier attitude towards the meanings of the very words you are using, I'm beginning to doubt the value of continuing the conversation...
Which means, that whoever earned those dollars lost some of their value. Where did it go
They had value only by convention and that convention changed.
When inflation rises, the interest rate for the best savings accounts will rise as well (ditto new CDs).
Whether you can still beat inflation or not, the point is, you are losing some of the wealth you had. The government, which spent the freshly-printed money before it loses value, gains gained what you lose — thus making it indistinguishable from tax. Whether that's good or bad, it is a form of taxation.
Your arguments make a case for it being a "good" form of taxation — you should stick to that and stop denying, that it is a tax...
Ever notice that even the busiest people are never too busy to tell you just how busy they are?
