I've always been a fan of remixes, and this is one where it takes an already good song and adds just enough to make it new and exciting. Imagine it as an introverted ode to parties.
The last sentence in the article sums up my feelings on this issue perfectly. A pharmacist's job is to help people get better by giving them the necessary medication. Denying people medication solely on the basis of religion is just absurd and completely against the job they signed up for when they became a pharmacist.
I've really been enjoying this and her other song lately.
It's crazy to think of all the math that went into the launch and guidance of that tiny little spaceship so that, nine years later, we could take pictures of a planet 3 billion miles away.
When I was actively studying French I found that many of my random, undirected thoughts wound up with little bits of French in them. I even dreamt in French on occasion. The first time I dreamt in French was quite a surreal experience, mainly because I couldn't understand everything being said, but my mind was still synthesizing French dialogue. Very strange, but overall an enjoyable experience.
I agree with most of this article and find it relevant to myself and my life going forward, however I take issue with the idea that we're going to make "perfect children". I don't think we could ever reach perfection, even if we had a clear definition of what perfect was, which we do not. And I don't think I'd ever want to. I think that if we did do as the article said and removed our little idiosyncrasies with implants and genetic tailoring, we'd lose much of what makes humanity so special and unique. That is not to say that the technology wouldn't be helpful, for example, ensuring your child doesn't have any serious genetic diseases, but I think completely readjusting a human being via technology is something that would hinder our world, not help it.
