Why is a rubber dick cover cheaper and easier to obtain than hormones that have more health benefits than I can count?

Because it’s cheaper to manufacture? Lol

Comey: FBI ‘Grappling’ With Hiring Policy Concerning Marijuana - WSJ

"Congress has authorized the FBI to add 2,000 personnel to its rolls this year, and many of those new recruits will be assigned to tackle cyber crimes, a growing priority for the agency. And that’s a problem, Mr. Comey told the White Collar Crime Institute, an annual conference held at the New York City Bar Association in Manhattan. A lot of the nation’s top computer programmers and hacking gurus are also fond of marijuana."

The popularity of inflation and credit expansion, the ultimate source of the repeated attempts to render people prosperous by credit expansion, and thus the cause of the cyclical fluctuations of business, manifests itself clearly in the customary terminology. The boom is called good business, prosperity, and upswing. Its unavoidable aftermath, the readjustment of conditions to the real data of the market, is called crisis, slump, bad business, depression. People rebel against the insight that the disturbing element is to be seen in the malinvestment and the overconsumption of the boom period and that such an artificially induced boom is doomed. They are looking for the philosophers’ stone to make it last

As Benjamin Franklin left the Pennsylvania State House after the final meeting of the Constitutional Convention on September 17, 1787, he was approached by the wife of the mayor of Philadelphia. She was curious as to what the new government would be. Franklin replied, “A republic, madam. If you can keep it.”

Of all the enemies to public liberty war is, perhaps, the most to be dreaded because it comprises and develops the germ of every other. War is the parent of armies; from these proceed debts and taxes … known instruments for bringing the many under the domination of the few.… No nation could preserve its freedom in the midst of continual warfare.
James Madison 1795

Why Microsoft is essentially creating “Jarvis” from Iron Man

While the execution of Windows 8 itself was less than successful and not well received, Microsoft is back to the drawing board with Windows 9 - more a refinement and maturity of the windows 8 principle of touch the universal OS. this hints more at the direction Microsoft sees the market heading.

Slate tablets have been coming out recently aiming at professionals. They support powerful Intel core microarchitecture CPUs, dedicated graphics, and large UHD displays. The TBA release of “Cortana”, the personal AI assistant designed to rival Siri. Cortana should find it’s way to the Xbox One, Microsoft mobile phones, and Windows 8/9. Cortana has a “notebook” like system that may support a virtual “memory” system that will be unified across all devices, from the TV, to PC, to tablet, to phone. This personal assistant paired up with the idea of giant touch screen computers to adorn walls and table, will essentially create your own “personal assistant” that follows you around, transferring from device to device. The Xbox one also points towards Microsoft’s plan, to have a full, unified ecosystem across all devices that not only unifies all media consumption and work, but also creates an artificial “friend” in a way. Truley the “home of tomorrow”.
