The whole political system can be replaced by computers. When everyone has access to the internet then when a vote needs to be taken, it can be taken from the public rather than politicians. 

A computer can find patterns to make maintenance more predictable, You put a road in X days later based on traffic and formulations you will do maintenance on this date. Seems pretty straightforward. The public taking selfies with potholes can help with real time monitoring and adjusting the maintenance date. Budget decisions can be reviewed by communities online.

Then the role of government is to just propose ideas and execute ideas that have been approved, which the idea thing can be done by people who actually have knowledge about the science of things rather than people who only know how to write speeches and take money from lobbyists. Great thing is that the ideas would be reviewed by the public and not other money hungry politicians. And as loud as the small percentage of people who have terrible opinions about things are, they are the rich ones who can afford to advertise, they are not the majority.

"Oh but people are influenced by corporations and computers can be hacked" - Politicians can be bribed and decisions can be lobbied. I trust a well secured computer more than a politician. Also by placing the vote to the public is there can not be any targeted advertising campaigns like when gay marriage was voted on in california and the mormon church invested millions to smash it. The cost to target a random sampling of people across the united states would be way too expensive.

as +TerraRubicon said: "technocracy and participatory economics offer the solution"

Raccoons are so cute! Maybe if they could stay away from the alcohol they wouldn't have to scrounge around the trash for food and spare change ;)

What happens to cows when you can grow meat in a lab? Will the domestic cow go extinct? Will farms turn into forest/nature preserves or more likely farm corn and things to feed the lab meat/ lab milk? I think that there will still be problems with lab grown meat, Fertilizer usage will increase, pesticide use. And will lab grown meat require less raw ingredients to grow?

I love your videos +Wisecrack 
Two complaints tho:
I feel like the philosophy videos can be a little biased
and the Thug Notes needs guest stars, Like +Hank Green!! That would be interesting :D

Perhaps this is the origin of human imagination? Maybe we have actually recreated how the animal brain sees the world?

You can do it!

I have been logging my food for a few weeks now ( http://www.myfitnesspal.com/food/diary/Rolyataylor2 ) and have lost some weight. I don't have as much to lose ( i have to lose 40lbs ) but it is possible it just takes dedication and patience. Weigh yourself often and chart your progress losing 1-2lb a week is enough to be successful. If you start there you can work up to more per week.

You live up here in the northwest where we have nature trails and beautiful landscapes for inspiration. Take a walk, watch the animals, They know whats up more then we do. They are happy to get a few scraps of food and anywhere to sleep. Thats all that matters.

I have had the same issues you have over the years with Depression/ADD, It takes a lot of self analysis, positive reinforcement, and a lot of internal "f you brain" to get out of depression. For me the trigger was money and social anxiety. With money I started with refining my bills down to a less scary number also I have been at the bottom when I was little and it's not that bad. For social anxiety that still is a bad habit to break. I found saying "yes"  before saying "no" helps, also not making plans... Not the most elegant solution, still working on that one.

Great job with the animation! It would be fun to turn some of those models/animations into a game.

Everyone's ideas for a Nintendo theme park has been terrible.
"take a game make it into a rollar coaster"  
"take a game and make it a park"
When designing a theme park you have to consider all ages and immersive environments, a astronaut walking through the western themed land ruins the experience. You have to transition between franchises using mutual landmarks.

Sports and fitness can transition into Bowser/Mario.
Mario Galaxy can transition into Metriod
Metroid can be used as a transition into mute city
Mute City can transition into Starfox.
Starfox (Space Ship parts to) Pikmin
Pikmin (via forest) into Donkey Kong
Donkey Kong.(via Forest Temple) transitions into Zelda.
Zelda (via zoras domain(restaurant))  into Pokemon Cinnabar boardwalk/waterpark.
Pokemon (via battling and surfing) to sports and fitness

The whole park would be a doughnut shape around Mt Miyamoto and the top of the mountain would be Pokemon Stadium.

I have planned out the whole park in very specific detail including the shape of each are, attractions, food, bathrooms, music. If anyone wants to help sketch it out we could have something here :D

I don't think when they wrote the constitution the term "Limited Times" meant lifetime. I think they probably meant like 10 years or 20 years. This would be enough to refine and profit from the idea and to come up with more innovations branching off the original idea. This in turn would allow me to innovate without the exclusive rights to the original works.

Like if I wrote a book I would have the rights for long enough to write a new one. This right would allow me to fund the new en devour and when the new one is out I would own the rights to that one and the original copyright would expire sooner then the new copyright. The limit in which they refer to would be the motivating factor for me to come up with something new, instead of riding on the coat tails of the original work.

Wonderful Experience at Springwater Dental. Dr Chung and his staff were excellent in the whole process and even with the follow up. Very attentive and understanding staff that helped massively with our dental fears. Can tell the staff cares about building a dedicated patient base by removing those dental fears people have. Had complex oral surgery done to remove impacted teeth and wouldn't have chose a different dentist. My wife had sedation oral surgery done and had no pain or problems and the whole process alleviated a lot of fears she had of dental work in general. Would recommend for anyone who has any reservations about getting work done on their teeth. Thank you Springwater Dental we will see you all for our regular cleanings.

Old school American Chinese Food. Everything is fried and delicious! Great place to spoil yourself after eating healthy all week. Growing up this was the type of food we would get when we went out to eat. You will like this place if you like places like Canton Grill or China Hut (I haven't been to those places in a while though). This is one of the last places that serves this type of chinese food and has large portions. I just wish they delivered, My heart is glad they don't though.

Best teriyaki sauce anywhere. The place is small and doesn't look that great on the inside, but the sauce! Even people who don't like teriyaki like this place for the sauce. Go there, try it! You can buy the sauce separately!
