The Stock Market is a complete scam for the sole purpose of politicians getting rich.

Ask yourself these two questions.
  1. If I received inside information on a regular basis, could I get rich off the Stock Market?
  2. If I were a politician, would I be privy to inside information a on a regular basis?
If you answered "yes" to both questions, congratulations!
If you didn't answer "yes" to both questions, you better keep on working!

I think grapefruit is a scam!

Every bag of candy has lime, lemon, apple, watermelon, and 3 or 4 other flavors that taste like shit; everybody wants grape or cherry!

Then they use the name "grape" along with fruit to make you think it's gonna be good.

NOPE!

What do you guys think a flight from NY to London via space would cost? It's not a sustainable model even if it was available. Space travel is a carrot that has been dangled in front of us for decades now. Complete waste of money, IMO
I am not talking about space travel to Europe. But space travel innovation and research will result better fuels and faster planes, this will eventually trickle down to commercial aviation at 30-40k feet

The best conspiracy theory of all? "wasting water".

It's impossible to waste water because every drop used finds it's way back into the earth's eco-system. You can pollute water, but you can't waste water.

The only water that has every been depleted from the earth is what the astronauts took to space to make Tang. And if global warming is real (yeah right) we should have more water on earth than ever before due to glaciers melting.

The problem really is drinking water in places that need it. If it’s all in the ocean currently it’s useless. It needs to rain and fill up the reserves to be useful. Unless desalination technology gets better and cheaper then we will never need to worry again.

I know you're from Cali, but have you ever seen the Mississippi river, Niagara Falls, The Great Lakes ect. We have no shortage of fresh water.

Yeah been to Great Lakes and seen the Mississippi in several spots and I agree, people in those areas and in places like Colorado or Washington and Oregon don’t have to worry about it. The problem is getting that water to me lol. In CA it’s a real problem and many other places around the world.

Fresh drinking water or Rockets into space, you can't have both my friend! Choose wisely...
