Coca-Cola contains Cocaine

Postby ElectricMonk » Thu Sep 01, 2016 11:22 am

I've come up with a set of rules that describe our reactions to technologies:
Spoiler:
1. Anything that is in the world when you’re born is normal and ordinary and is just a natural part of the way the world works.
2. Anything that's invented between when you’re fifteen and thirty-five is new and exciting and revolutionary and you can probably get a career in it.
3. Anything invented after you're thirty-five is against the natural order of things.

Science Fundamentalism...is exactly what happens when there’s a significant, perceived ideological threat to one’s traditions and identity.

Yes, Gorgon, "Coca" was to indicate that "coca leaf extracts are used in this product." It was legal.
