quote:the sad thing is, i find it rather difficult to even imagine a world wherein these four pressing problems and their antecedents/consequences do not exist. it's almost as if these are what makes humans, humans. despite of that, i still find myself trying not to justify making the life of others more miseralbe with phrases like, "get over it, the world is cruel," "that's just the way it is," "haha, sucks to be you," and other Greatest Hits.
This is a point that can be philosophical and metaphysical.
What are humans and what are they supposed to be?
I have said to a friend of mine, Mr. Spock was the only human being on the Enterprise. It is like "human" is used as an excuse to be stupid. Television has been helping brainwash us into being dumb and telling us it's OK.

You're kidding me? My price search turned up $450 for that thing.
This is currently going for $311. It might or might not go over $450. Let's wait and see.
I can imagine gamers and some people doing high end rendering spending that much for a graphics card but I regard it as absurd for gamers. I got hooked on Doom in the 90's for about 8 months but I would not have spent $400 to play Doom better. Every used computer I have purchased cost less than that even after I add a new hard drive.
