I'm starting a new SF story about Martian and Jovian colonists rebelling against Earth. I can explain more if anyone is curious. I don't find this one line description particularly intriguing, but I can't tell if it's actually a boring story or if you just haven't gone into enough detail to cover t...

I think there are other obsessive human behaviors that are far more worthy of being classified as a mental health condition. For example, the obsession with cellphones or social media, and the radical change in behavior that results... No reason why they can't both be mental health problems. The ke...

That's not really my point. I'm just saying don't make Domino's out to be some hero making life better in small town America or some such. I'm just pointing out that this is 100% profit motivated, and any "getting job[s] done" is a mere side effect. Good, that's the nature of the thing. W...

Yeah, but only if you overdo it. Eating too much can be dangerous too. Medically speaking, the solution to "you eat a lot" isn't "don't eat anything for the majority of your biological clock's awakening time and then leave everything to be digested as you sleep" (As you know, th...

Fasting isn't stupid. And it definitely isn't dangerous. A few days of hunger isn't gonna kill you or anything. I've seen some people who should really consider some fasting, if you catch my drift. You need food to live. Not having food can, therefore, be dangerous. Yeah, but only if you overdo it....
