  1. The concept of a vaccine containing a microchip does seem a bit of a lunatic conspiracy. However, I happen to think we aren't far from the availability of robotic technology in your blood stream that can monitor your health and, later on, even repair health issues. The conspiracy gangs are sure to go ape-sh*t crazy at that point.
  2. The asbestos baby powder lads are coming out with a vaccine that is DNA-based and only requires a single dose. Early trials suggest an efficacy of 90%, so comparable to the others. It's currently in stage 3 testing. How Does Johnson & Johnson’s Single-Dose COVID-19 Vaccine Work? No word on whether it contains a microchip.
  3. Is this how QAnon got started? Danger, Will Robinson. Danger.
  4. I'm not sure it's about education. The trend I see is that the Republican party has spent a couple of decades indoctrinating its followers into distrusting the mainstream media. Lacking any other sources of reliable information, they naturally migrate toward (mostly unproveable) conspiracy theories that are easy to package and popularize. Perhaps QAnon was inevitable? I wonder if the fix could be to create reliable information sources that lack procedural bias; just relate the facts for both sides? Maybe we need an AI political bias detector?
  5. Seeing that Snowpiercer is essentially a Generation ship concept, how long until we get an actual Generation ship series on TV?
  6. Well, the Geneva convention should apply to all signatories, even if they don't follow it religiously. Not sure what else you'd call them that isn't a political trigger word. Internment camps can be just as charged.
  7. You can probably trace the need for concentration camps back to the Thirty Years War, when the practice of releasing POWs without ransom at the end of the conflict became enshrined in the treaty language. Prior to that prisoners were often killed, enslaved, and/or held for ransom. Anyway, concentration camps (and refugee camps) are really a logistical necessity.
  8. The big question for me is whether commercial space exploration will have access to nuclear energy.
  9. Every President does this, and they often contain a few controversial picks. Steve Bannon, for example. Technically, he's just releasing his own swamp monsters back into the wild. What I would like to see is a way for Congress to override a pardon.
  10. "As I conclude my term as the 45th President of the United States, I stand before you truly proud of what we have achieved together. We did what we came here to do — and so much more." -- DJT
  11. Funny how McConnell is being more assertive now about Trump. If the Republican congress critters had show more backbone in December, the sack of the Capitol building might never have happened.
