I know he's just sidestepping the abortion issue but the priorities here make me laugh.

You know, just to prove him utterly stupid in the regard, I'll address his last point:
QUOTE (Idiot)

Yes. Yes it is. It's either that or we bury the thing to become food for worms. Or we incinerate it for it to become food for crazy people who eat ashes (they do exist). Frankly, it's far more beneficial to provide food for all people, instead of just worms or crazy people.

This guy is really trying to mess with the idea that unborn babies are delicious. I give him credit for bringing that much crazy in, and putting the idea in everyone's head. Now I need to know if an aborted fetus is, in fact, the best sauce.

Makes perfect sense to me. When you ban things that people want to do they tend to find ways around the bans anyway. But if you ban something that nobody would possibly consider researching, producing, or consuming it'll be 100% effective.

I think this guy has the right idea. A hard-hitting ban on a critical issue in America today.

I hope next he champions another essential problem, we need to stop killing old people and turning them into Happy Meals. Why will no one do something about this issue that I heard about on the internet!

Just buy two, one registered under the name of somebody you don't like, and preferably recieved as a gift and using somebody else's wifi.

Then put the one that immediately shows up as yours on a cow, so their records show you to be obsessed with grass.

Then you get an unusually large number of ads for grass seeds popping up in front of your eyes when you're trying to drive.

Because it's a great idea to wear augmented-reality glasses while driving. Yes. Indeed.

I'd be tempted to hook up a GPS to it. Keep track of my speed and exercise. Diabetics could have their blood sugar display on it. Make life into a game with an unrealistic HUD.

That reminds me of a quote I once heard: "The trick is, to treat everything like it's a game, then get really good at games. That way, you're good at everything"

Obviously you couldn't have advertising on it. I'm sure it wouldn't be a free service, so I'm not sure why pop-up ads got mentioned...

Glasses while driving could be useful, depending on the sophistication of the software and what it had access to. Somewhat dangerous, but less than texting or some forms of GPS... it doesn't occupy your hands or make you look down.

I think the whole thing works via wireless gps and cameras in the glasses, so that should be all hooked up for you.

I just love the fact we are in the future. Now we just need to go to space.

That's not the best part. Remember the rule of first adopters: the first uses any new technology is put to is pornographic.

Ability to call up any online naked pictures just by looking at somebody and/or see their dating history, preferences, and STD status instantaneously, here we come!
