As long as a dollar value hangs on any amount of matter - our institutions will fail us

What corrupts politics? Money.

What corrupts science? Money.

What corrupts religion (not that I'm a fan but...) money!

As long as anything has a price tag, any attempt to reform the system will be in vain.

Agree or disagree?

5. Well, I've known hookers, but I've never bought services from one.

 

I've been fairly regularly fortunate with women since 8th grade. Had a couple of off months between relationships, but not many. I met my wife in '84 so I've been set in that department since.



As for the hookers, I guess No Pants Wonder Day might be considered corruption.
