Thank A Scientist
« on: August 30, 2012, 02:11:55 am »
We hear a lot in this country that we should thank the vets. Thank a veteran for your freedom! Honk for the troops! Multiple national holidays, etc, etc.

While I appreciate and respect the veterans, what I have possibly never heard is "Thank a scientist." Thank a student of science for your freedoms... It makes sense, right? The freedom to live past thirty? Freedom from a plethora of old-world disease? Freedom to refridgerated food, air conditioning, automobiles, chairs, glass, plumbing, electricity, recorded music, computers, phones, the internet, eyeglasses, hearing aids, lasting teeth, airplanes, hospitals, even (for better or worse) televisions... Thank a student of mechanical engineering, for example, for your doors, cabinets, dresser drawers... Thank an architect for having a shelter to live in at all... Thank a student of science.

Thank you scientists, for giving the power to collapse civilization to complete morons.
"The thoughts of all men arise from the darkness. If you are the movement of your soul, and the cause of that movement precedes you, then how could you ever call your thoughts your own? How could you be anything other than a slave to the darkness that comes before? Only the Logos allows one to mitigate that slavery. Only knowing the sources of thought and action allows us to own our thoughts and our actions, to throw off the yoke of circumstance."

Sorry, I'm boycotting scientists until they cough up what they've been promising for 60 damn years:

- Radiation-proof metallic unisex leotards.
- Flying cars.
- Rocket packs.
- Moon/Mars colonies.
- Ocean-floor cities.
- Hoverboards.
- The end of famine, disease, war, and poverty.

Remember those things? What happened there?

I vote against this one.  I don't want humans driving the REGULAR cars.
