Laissez faire capitalism, a republican form of government with limited powers, private property rights, and freedom for individuals to pursue their talents under the umbrella of Christian ethics (i.e., the 10 Commandments), following the preaching and widespread acceptance of the Gospel, are what is necessary to carry out God’s dominion mandate and bring prosperity to people in all nations of the world. Capitalism without both Christian ethics and politics is impossible.

That entire vid translates to "Look around you. Thank you, Capitalism". Unfortunately, the authors don't seem to realize what a double-edged sword that really is.

The most improper job of any man, even saints, is bossing other men. Not one in a million is fit for it, and least of all those who seek the opportunity.

J.R.R. Tolkien



Wherever we go in the world we find other men speaking the same language...dreaming the same dreams. And one of the big four - brownie, or brookie, cutthroat or rainbow - is the cause of it all.

I think you put this in the wrong thread. Might I suggest "Cool in the News"? Salad and Go is awesome. I'd love to try most of the others. McDonald's et al are dinosaurs and need to go extinct.

Hey! You want to eat bean curds then go for it! It ain't a burger, though.

How much pee is in our swimming pools?
over a three-week period they calculated that swimmers had released 75 litres of urine – enough to fill a medium-sized dustbin – into a large pool (about 830,000 litres, one-third the size of an Olympic pool) and 30 litres into a second pool, around half the size of the first.
I was tempted to go with "Canada in the News," since the testing was done in Canada, but I know that it's not just a Canadian problem.

Oh hell, that's still drinking water quality. The chlorine is worse than that. Do the calculation.
You and my pool-boy are a little squeamish for nothing. It's when they pee on the hot sauna rocks that you should complain.

You wouldn't believe what is in natural pristine lakes.

Nope. That's not a problem either. But beaver fever is awful. It's the heavy metals, pollutants, other agricultural and industrial byproducts. It depends where the lake is. Urine isn't a problem in the tiny amounts that these squeamish folks measure. Urine is 95% water, and the rest is salts and some organic material. It's not a problem. If you even suggest that you can tell when a pregnant woman has been in the pool they will flock to your pool. Make sure you get your heart checked before doing this. #funformenstuff
