Remember the hero was named Ryan and he invented a 'super lite super strong' steel product and the govt want him to share the invention w/ everbody.
My first job, within 2 weeks of finishing the book? Ryerson Steel!!!

These threads have a way of getting people all fired up and going nowhere.

(Kind of why we suggest political threads should be avoided in the forum. Even the Lounge category says: "Political discussion? ONLY topics directly related to efficiency are allowed.")

It's nice to see people be passionate about big issues, but EcoModder isn't really the best place for it. I've been kind of lax about reminding people of this - there are a few other threads lately that really don't belong...

if you can't handle smoking, who the hell wants to insure YOU, ya big pansy.
Just the car starting is 200 trillion cigarettes...
god burned tobacco before a internal combustion engine fire...a volcano is close, but still not what we have done.

I feel bad for mig welders, fuel workers, painters, and insulators and everyone else that has the super lunged immunity for their jobs, ya got truckers and pilots and aviation mechanics out on the line...sucking down more than a cigarette can't cure by its own nature ....

stop the gay supremacy, else no insurance...for gay supremacy. How is that for fixing something?

welfare moms, they need to relax, have a smoke, stop making babies.
if one needs insurance, they are sick. I myself am a rare case of following rules to insurance deserved. I do have scenarios all around me enough to break minds and hearts...something has to give, and it is going to cost alot...
