I'll check that dictionary, but in the meantime I'm impressed - as is everyone else in the world - by your eloquence, obvious accomplishments and success, and the evidence of your blazingly high intelligence.

The trolley problem as I know it is a moral dilemma usually posed to utilitarianists (whose -ism is actually relatively clear on what to do, generally kill one to save several). I haven't heard the dictator/cookie version.

The fact that we got rid of child labor is why China is winning imo. They're not letting their kids slack off like we do they're bred to be champions bruh.

Not to mention they're now limiting video game time that young people can have. The state is forcing them to go and touch grass.

Most expensive home in America defaults on $165 million in debt, heads for sale

Quote:
Expected to hit the market in 2017 with a price tag of $500 million, “The One” has been dogged by repeated delays, funding problems and changing strategies. The home stretches like an ultra-modern palace over eight acres on a hilltop overlooking LA. It has nine bedrooms, multiple kitchens, a nightclub, four-lane bowling alley, salon, gym, 50-seat theater, a running track and an underground garage for 50 cars, with two auto turntables. Its seven water features include multiple pools, a jacuzzi and a moat that surrounds the house. The master bedroom suite is 4,000 square feet. Every door in the house is electric, along with all the toilets. Niami had planned a “jellyfish room” and ice bar but both proved too costly.

“There’s a lot of people out there with a lot of money — they want something no one else can have,” Niami told CNBC in 2017. “This is it.”
