I expect the either the injury excuse or even more ironclad "That was a fluke" rebuttal. Then there will be a subject change to a new panthers player, with an LOL, fail, and a grammatical error mixed in.
Did you say "I expect the either the" and make a jab at grammatical error in same sentence?
I've never understood the terraforming Mars thing. If we have the technology to terraform a barren planet then we'll have the technology to 'fix' ours.
Not exactly. In terraforming Mars would invole setting into motion stuff on a planetary scale. We would just be the catalyst for it and it basically invokes melting CO2 ice sheet to make an atmosphere. One the other hand, melting ice is way different then trying to reverse global warming. We would need to figure out how to remove greenhouse gasses from the atmosphere and reverse glacial melt. Doing that is incredibly more difficult than just applying heat to some ice.
What do you think of countries like China that make having children a privilege and charge taxes exponentially to families with more than one kid. Some would argue that is the exact opposite of what happens when the govt assistance programs in US pay more for each child. Once population growth becomes unmanageable, do compulsory sterilatipn programs seem too extreme? Pretty interesting issue. Further, as medicine proceeds, you have people living much older ages and no money to care for them. You can even play devil advocate and say that from an evolutionary aspect, some medical advances are hurting the soecies as it is allowing procreation for people who wouldn't otherwise be able to and thus that weaker DNA is being passed along as opposed to selected out which could lead to more genetic degradation of the species. Then again, that is a Htler type scenerio which is obviously wrong, but in a future context of global overcrowding, would the public be more willing to outlaw or regulate medically assisted pregnancies for people with genetic disorders? I think a lot of these taboo issue will eventually be at the forefront in a future overcrowded and resource poor earth.
