      @Adam Nicholes I don't think you sound like a monster, I think you've nailed it.
      We went way to far thinking that we are better than other animals, bringing a detremental instability to the whole planet. And the way things is very unlikely that we will unite all together and save this beautiful planet.

    • Adam Nicholes
      Adam Nicholes 29 days ago +1

      I'm about to sound like an absolute monster. I'm against it for we stray away from nature. We are already in the brink of self-extinction. There are already too many of us. I'll admit I, like everyone, am interested in this for thenbenefot nk of humans. However, we have pushed ourselves to becoming more than we were ever supposed to be. Now with 7.8 billion and growing, resources are running out. We need not continue on this path. That is until we have "thinned the herd".

    Half a million dollars to never be sick and the cost will definitely go down when it is available to the public isn't a bad deal. Let's say you could spend a few years worth of income to live decades longer... Who wouldn't take that deal?

    Please tone down the canned laughter. Its insufferable and kills what might otherwise be a funny joke...


    turkey f****** crazy to think that all Muslims and Jews would go on a hunger strike if we took away all food except for pork! I cannot help but think that
    If your belief system makes you think crazy s*** like whether you can or can't eat something that hasn't been blessed.
    you're probably going to need to rethink how you navigate life.

      1. a joke exploiting the different possible meanings of a word or the fact that there are words which sound alike but have different meanings.

      @Tim Hummm. Did I use a wrong english word here?
      Pun as the part of a joke where the laughing starts....?
      'cause you've got to admit. Get a pig's heart (or whatever) thereby becoming safe from "Jewish cannibals".
      Man, that IS funny!

      BTW. Please! Don't say you're offended by this joke. It could just as easily have been a muslim instead of a Jew where the bottom line is they don't eat pork.

      A bio-weapon made in a small apartment is straight out of the plot for Tom Clancy's The Division. A virologist took a sample of the smallpox virus, set up a lab in his apartment, modified the virus so that it spreads faster and deadlier than the original, and unleashed it on Black Friday using dollar bills as the method for spreading the virus. Why did he do it? He believed humanity has become too powerful and that mother nature needed help in the process of natural selection.
