    Dr. Massassi or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Misanthropy

    Post why we should hate humanity today.

    Today, humanity has been fluoridating my water and polluting my precious bodily fluids. Therefore, I've made this thread to ensure mutually-assured hatred is shared among everyone.

    But water fluoridation is good for your teeth and has no proven adverse effects + all natural water from a healthy non-depleted source is supposed to be slightly fluoridated.

    Don't forget they also use ultraviolet light on treated water, Gebohq! It is clear They want to give us cancer.

    To be perfectly clear, this is true if "water fluoridation" is taken to mean that the fluoride concentration achieved by the water district is consistent with government targets. It's certainly possible to O.D. on fluoride (maybe by swallowing gobs of toothpaste), but there's no reason to worry about this (especially especially if you are an adult).

    Irradiation of food has also been done for years, and is entirely safe AFAIK, though I haven't looked into it, or whether the practice is still prevalent. It could be that the anti-science / Natur über alles crowd spread enough FUD to effectively end the practice.

    The use is increasing, thankfully.

    It's also being used for equipment and medical devices. It's too bad radscare is a thing, otherwise it would be prevalent enough to e.g. treat farm equipment, which is how a lot of plant diseases get spread.

    In all seriousness, NY built a neat, new ultraviolet light disinfectant facility last year to be used as secondary treatment for water. Originally I thought there would be large holding tanks lined with UV lights but it looks like the water is passed through big pipes with UV "rods" going through the flow. NYC is blessed to have nice, ample supplies of water from the Catskills and surrounding area, although a lot of the plumbing and water mains pipes in the city sucks and cause the water to taste funny.

    Don't we have a resident water resources engineer on Massassi? My water resources textbooks don't really cover UV light treatment (honestly, they all tend to suck and filled with errors), it would be cool to know more the specifics on the design.

    I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class at Water Resource Engineering University, and I’ve been involved in numerous secret repairs on NYC's water mains, and I have over 300 confirmed water treatment plants. I am trained in flood forecasting and I’m the top sediment transport specialist in the entire US. You are nothing to me but just another mudflow. I will wipe you the **** out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my ****ing words. You think you can get away with asking me that **** over the Internet? Think again, ****er. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of civil engineers across the USA and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You’re ****ing dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with stormwater runoff. Not only am I extensively trained in hydrology, but I have access to the entire irrigation system of the east coast and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little ****. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “clever” comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your ****ing tongue. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will **** fury all over you and you will drown in it. You’re ****ing dead, kiddo.

    Sounds dandy! Care to share more details?

    True story: a university professor with a PhD. in biology* at a UC Campus once showed us a video about alternative medicine, which, among other things, uncritically promoted homeopathy.

    * thankfully this was not a biology course, though, but an unrelated G.E. course, so the biology department can't be blamed for hiring her.

    Wait, you mean to tell me so-called many American "Christian" fundamentalists aren't so keen on the progressive reforms that Christ made on the Abrahamic religion?

    One would hope that intelligence isn't always required for people to behave ethically.

    Then again, organized religion in general has a rather laughable and hypocritical track record w.r.t. ethics, historically (in many regards).

    Likewise, I'm similarly peeved that my local rodent population hasn't spontaneously assembled itself into a utopian society of sophisticated, talking animals.

    But a lifetime of consuming fluoridated water will petrify your pineal gland, and as we all know, the pineal gland is the seat of the soul, which means that over time you will become permanently disconnected from the astral plane, and without a functioning pineal gland to release a large quantity of dimethyltryptamine upon death, you will not be able to enter the afterlife!

    Pro-Life people who believe the only solution to the too many abortions problem is to make it illegal, even though that has been shown to be the worst way to reduce abortions.

    Outcomes matter. Rhetorical purity does not.

    What the United States has done to Christianity.

    (Note: Much like industrialism, slavery, and capitalism, Europe might have started the hurt first, but the United States owned it.)

    The only funny joke on Twitter is the fact that politicians and corporations take it seriously.
