RE: What the hell is wrong with the United States?
Not that I don't find this entertaining, but I don't see the point in debating Luminon. His posts read like free association. There is no logical thread that connects anything he says. Thankfully, he is mostly harmless; guilty of being and idiot, perhaps suffering from a mental disorder, but certainly not worthy of the effort to respond and educate. As soon as you do he just word vomits that most recent thing he read and you are off on a luminon tangent, pulling your hair out over something completely unrelated to anything anyone said three posts ago.

Don't let me stop you though. It is excellent free entertainment.

Do you mean to refer to the electrical charge within our fleshy meat-sacks?

If that's the case, how on Earth do you mean to control that? If I recall correctly, the charge of the individual cells is generated by the sodium-potassium pump; how on Earth do you figure to control that and keep the cells functioning?

The other electrical component is the electrochemical energy of our nervous impulses; those are easy enough to control with implants or other devices, but why would you want to alter that? You'd probably send yourself or your test subjects into all manner of seizure, spasm or arrest.
I'll send that to you through personal message, then. I hope you're some kind of professional.

You categorically disregard every attempt I've ever made to educate you in real science. A professional audience is the last thing you want.

Oh, don't I know it. He's the chess-playing pigeon, all right.

It is very entertaining watching you hunt the white whale of teaching trolls to science and logic.

Sorry, but I'm a mere B-grade high school biology student.

A single action is worth more than the words it takes to describe it.

Is it selfish of me to want him to continue just for the entertainment value. I find his post fascinating, just like an old Jerry Springer episode.
