    • Actually, there ain't nothing wrong with money.
      It's when you start to love it that the problem comes in.

Have an opinion?

    • Show All
    • @muspelhem_5 I remember watching shows like "Trigun" or "DBZ" right. Well right as an action scene was about to take place. They'd cut the show off right there just TO BRING THAT PUNK ON THE AIR. "Okay baby work it 1,2 3, 4,... are you feeling the burn? With this machine, you'll burn 5x the calories" etc. The worst part about it was that I was never sleepy until that guy came on TV #Done

    • Hahaha, so funny :)

  • Gasoline was not so much invented as it was marketed. It was the primary waste product from the production of kerosene.

    Take note that kerosene is actually a specific carbon chain, it is a chemical with very specific physical properties. Gasoline or petrol or whatever it is called in various cultures or languages is a catch all name. It refers to a stew of otherwise undesirable byproducts from making other valuable petroleum based chemicals.

    The brilliance of marketing gasoline lies in our dependency on paying for the privilege of disposing of someone else's industrial waste.

    It's not a surprise that it pollutes, it starts out as pollution.

  • I'd probably go with guns. Everybody feels like they need them to defend themselves, yet it's only necessary vs OTHER PEOPLE WITH GUNS. How's that for a cycle? Bananaland...

    There's even a genetically modified salmon, which is sacrilege as far as I'm concerned. It's just too close to playing God.

    • Weird that I'm the Christian unconcerned about "playing God" but more concerned at how genetically modified salmon will harm natural salmon.
      Besides, if people would stop being friggin IDIOTS, and we'd get rid of the bottom trawlers ripping out our kings, we'd have plenty of salmon.

    • YES, that terrifies me. I almost tagged you, actually.

      "Playing God " is kind of a loaded phrase, and I probably should have worded it differently. Basically, I agree with you: behave in a way that allows nature its balance, and you don't need to create your own (potentially harmful) species. It's just so stupid to me.

  • Guns. Things would be a lot different if we was still shooting bows and arrows.

  • Political parties. If candidates all ran independently and people had to actually think about what they stand for and why, governments would run much smoother.

  • I hate wasps, I was raped by a swarm of wasps as a little kid now it's the only thing I'm afraid of. I've been attacked so many times I feel like every other summer I get butt fucked over by wasp swarm.

    I rip my shirt off and flail like crazy while full sprint.

  • Nah, I think everything has its uses. You wouldn't also have a lot of things you do now if it weren't for gasoline. Sure, you can use alternatives, but they are nowhere near as efficient as gasoline - a necessary "evil"

  • Well obviously the invention of weapons. Any kind.

    But aside from that.. The Internet, although it's useful and fast I feel like we spend so much time using it and are so overexposed to different feelings/opinions/cultures etc that we never feel the need to experience them for ourselves. It has a desensitising effect. Not to mention takes away from the simple pleasures life itself has to offer.

  • Cars. I have one and guilty of driving places that are walking distance. I think cars make us too dependent and lazy. If people didn't have cars, the obesity level will probably go down tremendously becuase we'd be forced to walk. It's just realistically speaking, many people commute and NEED cars to get from point A to point B.
