Message to Climate Concerned Millenials

Paying at the checkout at the supermarket, a young assistant suggested to the woman that she should bring her own shopping bags because plastic bags weren't good for the environment.The woman apologized and explained, "We didn't have this green thing back in my earlier days."The assistant responded, "That's our problem today, because your generation did not care enough to save our environment for future generations."  She was right -- our generation didn't have the green thing in its day. Back then, we returned milk bottles, pop bottles and beer bottles to the store. The store sent them back to theplant to be washed and sterilized and refilled, so it could use the same bottles over and over. So they really were re…

Will we allow ourselves to become Cyborgs?

One of the comments in the article says "first it's cool, then it's convenient, then it becomes legally required. Then you're a bad parent if you don't put it on your children, and finally, your kids can't go to school without it." A Swedish company is now implanting their employees with a microc…

The abortion debate should change

We have a lot of people on both sides of the issue going at each other like an MMA fight and it is even a tad entertaining to those of us who study people and their actions as a hobby but if we take a step back and let go of all the political, partisan bickering there are a lot strong reasons why th…

Poking around Medium today, I came across this noxious little item, " ," by Sasha Stone and Ryan Adams.
