    Posted By: Andrew PalfreymanEven little Cuba provides free health care for all its people and it's of fairly high quality. The USA, richer than Cuba beyond measure, does not. Which country is truly more civilised?


    I have been treated in Cuba, and I agree. The facilities show signs of poverty but the treatment is good.

    Self sufficient colonies in space and on planets and moons are essential for the human species survival.

    What's so good about human species survival?

    The U.S. has the best medical care money can buy.

    If you don't have the money, just lie down and die.

    Mr. McGuire: I want to say one word to you. Just one word.
    Benjamin: Yes, sir.
    Mr. McGuire: Are you listening?
    Benjamin: Yes, I am.
    Mr. McGuire: Plastics.
    Benjamin: Exactly how do you mean?
    Mr. McGuire: There's a great future in plastics. Think about it. Will you think about it?

    When I was a little kid in the early sixties it seemed like I was always hearing something to the effect that "in the future everything will be made of plastic".

    I always wondered about how this transformation was to occur as I took it to mean EVERYTHING (trees, houses, cars, food, clouds, animals, people?).

    Not far from true. The plastic content of the ocean is steadily going up. Fish and seabirds are now increasingly made of the plastic they ingest. (Of course it kills them.) Ocean beaches are laminated with garbage bags, drink bottles and polyurethane rope. On land all sorts of things are made of plastic that weren't before: houseplants, cars, tools. The plastic content of people is probably increasing too, but the actual level is a commercial secret.

    Sometimes, instead of trying to narrow them, the trick is to present your adversaries with far too many options.
