Why I Had to Buy My Wife's Inhaler on the Dark Web submitted by leetdood to news

TheSloth17 5 points 20 points (+25|-5) ago

Is it really the fault of the (drug) corporations though? They are part of a system where they need to invest HUGE sums of money with a high rate of failure. Research is neither cheap nor easy. Then they have to address their shareholders, if they don't stay profitable their value plummets and now they can't continue research. Cheap drugs can't exist in our economic system, take antibiotics for example. Companies don't want to research new antibiotics because its expensive and hard to succeed and then when they do find a new one they can't use it except in extreme cases for fear of resistances growing so they have to charge exorbitant sums to recoup the money they put into it. All of this has to be done before the patent expires. The companies aren't greedy monsters, the system they are forced to operate in is the problem and it would take s MASSIVE overhaul of the American healthcare system to even start to address the problem.

ELI5: Why is religion so bad? submitted by rocketmaster84 to atheism

congrats, and what's your point? I didn't say everyone who believes in religion is looking to harm others. I said that religion is perfectly fine and good, except when people use it as an excuse to do fucked up things to other people. For example the story about the Sikh man who used his turban as a pillow to comfort a hurt child is an example of how religion is good. Then you have the westboro baptists as an example of why religion is bad because bad people are using it as an excuse for their own malicious agenda.

The short answer is: religion isn't bad, people who use it as an excuse to harm others are the problem.

On race and IQ submitted by TNDsince83 to RaceRealism

IQ tests are culturally biased, you can't compare the IQ of different populations accurately. Not to mention all of the other problems with IQ tests.

Kentucky man shoots down drone hovering over his backyard submitted by sombravetado to technology

What about a directional jammer, that way there is little to no collateral damage. See drone harassing you, aim jammer, file police report and turn the drone over to said police. No one is hurt, no property damaged, and the operator of the drone learns a lesson.

SCOTUS Ruling On Same-Sex Marriage Mandates Nationwide Concealed Carry Reciprocity - Bearing Arms submitted by Watcher1 to news

As nice as it would be, I don't think national CCW reciprocity will happen. It's far to easy to argue that the purpose of a CCW permit is to ensure the holder knows the laws related to concealed carrying in the state that issues it. Obviously the gun laws vary from state to state, like the castle doctrine, so I believe national reciprocity is very unlikely to be mandated.
