"It's fairly apparent or so it would seem, in the current apocalyptic realm, false prophets have not only pocketed millions of dollars with their deceptive interpretation of the Word, but have totally infiltrated the Evangelical pulpit. Christ warned us millenniums ago, to be wary of such and not be sucked it! We are commanded to believe them not, and yet we have drowned them with our treasure in order to facilitate these false teachers to continue in their heretical rants."

....how do you continue ranting once you have been drowned?

although if you actually have been drowned in treasure, you probably don't need it any more - can we come up with some sort of wealth-redistribution plan here?

naturally I would spend the treasure in the way that would be expected to do the most good for the most people

redistribution has a low expected utility

so no

I guess it depends how we define redistribution, since a variety of health care initiatives (like free contraception) can save more than they cost... so if we take it from you... and give it to services that help people who aren't you...

Granted, it's a broad definition...

Sorry, you're in the pinch zone. Too much to get free money but not enough to take care of car cooling systems.

If the net utility to me doesn't compare favourably to buying deworming treatments for children then you're out of luck.

So I turn on the TV and Howard Stern is telling Savannah Guthrie (I had to google her) it would be great if she got postpartum depression. You know, for the ratings.

Stuff like this is why I don't watch TV.

No, I've evolved to be able to receive radio waves and directly convert them into audio-visual information in my occipital lobe. Glad you picked up on the important part of that short story.

What depresses me the most is the state of infotainment cable network staples like History, Discovery, TLC, et al. So little info, leading to not enough tainment.

You mean the Nazi Channel, the Doing Stupid Shit Outside Channel, and the Lookit These Odd People Channel?

I mean, everyone knows history began in 1939 and ended in 1945.

You obviously haven't watched History in some time. Let me quote a Cracked article that came out today which sums it up well enough:

Quote:
Just switch on the History Channel -- after shifting from history-based programming to "reality" shows (those are sarcasm quotes!), their ratings exploded thanks to a hit line-up that included shows such as Conspiracy, Ancient Aliens, and UFO Hunters. Back when it was dedicated to factual documentaries, History was the 20th most popular cable network, but since switching Hitler out for little green men, it's shot up to the Top 5. Bullshit sells.
