If they treat education like a product, they can't very well bitch when you act like a consumer.

YOU can deal with YOUR weight, and your own shame, however the hell you want.
We live in a society where excess, empty calories, and sedentary behavior is the norm. That is not healthy. That is not to be encouraged, embraced, or accepted. There is nothing wrong with trying to foster social shift by pointing this out. If anything, obesity and other excess-and-inactivity-related health issues are social issues, not individual issues, and they are therefore to be improved through social action, not individual action.
Oh, we are having a debate now. A possibly heated debate about social health issues?
News to me. I thought I was shitting all over your parenting.
Because I take personal stances like that with people I respect. I must have mean I know your family history better than you do.
Actually no. Nigel, I did not say anything about you or your daughter. I would not presume to do so. If it came across that way, I apologize. Not my intention.
You know your own family history. I don't. Why would I claim to do so?
I am talking about people in general, not people of whom you do, in fact, have medical or historically based knowledge of as that is a TOTALLY DIFFERENT STORY.
But, you know, thanks for immediately assuming I would do such a thing.
The thing of it is, you don't know how anyone is predisposed to burn a given amount of calories.
I cannot find the damned link, but there was a study recently done on mice that heavily suggested that mice do not burn the same amount of calories at the same rate given the same level of physical exercise.
So, IF that can be applied to human beings, which is an assumption, but not an unfair one, IMO, then what advice would you give to the millions people out there constantly worrying about the fat on their bodies? With such a potential for variance of metabolic rate in any given human how do you know their fat is cause by their activity level and caloric intake just by looking at them?
I didn't say they looked at the same image over and over again, and you just restated what I said.
But if you're that convinced that I just don't get it, go right on ahead and believe that.
I'm convinced you're not seeing the same thing I am. You start out with "Literally all it is doing"
Literally all it's doing is reading neural hardware activity and decoding it, producing a reproduction (albeit a very rudimentary one) of the input signal. The impression I'm getting is like if I was showing you an old mainframe room 20 or 30 years ago and you were like "Yes but all it's doing is adding and subtracting numbers" and at the same time, I'm seeing how it's going to end up with youtube on a cellphone.
