I agree with all of the mature points you made, regardless of all the juvenile methods used to make the points.
You're right in that. Any way to prove a point is valid from my point of view; but quickly disqualifies one*.
Main point is; even if you are wrong, you are right (after some time and learning, which is called progress). You doubt, even yourself. So you look for arguments and learn. I'd vote for you; you proven you learn; most of us don't. You improve, with each iteration.
And yes, I'm not quite "there"; took a sleeping pill and "some" pain killers.. and maybe took them again. Dunno how much today. We loose count quickly.
..but even ONE of you would make a difference in my government. Just one that dares ask and acts; one that thinks, regardless of consequences, one that dares defy the current ideas. Regardless of media, one that dares to ask.
And in 225, we have NONE.

Somewhat of a pretense that it wasn't parallel enough.
No point to it - certainly it did nothing to enhance your original premise or the response. Basically, as if you were hoping to find some technicality by which you could (pretend) to write the whole reply off.
Too much emotion involved in so many decisions these days. #BringBackLogic
SARS, MERS, avian flu, swine flu, all their yearly variations...somehow we've made it this far.
The difference now is that nobody has a backbone anymore, and nobody wants to be held accountable. If you're instructed by politicians to follow guidelines, and you don't, then it's on you if someone gets infected - they're off the hook, so they're happy.
First - let me mention I think that the block chain currency concept is has be and will continue to be an excellent medium for criminal behavior. The idea may have been good - too bad they let people use it.
China creating the software and means to unify all the world's blockchains[^]. I can't imagine anything going wrong with that! For that matter, even making the mutually compatible (reach out and touch someone) eliminates a bit of a firewall surely obstructs some form of commerce or another.
At the least, let this coalescecent technology be in the hands of some country that makes a lot of use of it, acting as a base for ransom and other "services" . . . . oh.
Attributed CO2 emissions are reportedly measured yearly in the tens of millions of tons. You want to go after the useless/wasteful emitters, I say look there before coming for my car. Last time I fueled up was in April; before that, the Christmas holidays.
