    The eggs’ freezing is everything but a present. The corporate elite of which Apple and Facebook are part of is massively investing in surrogacy farms in third world countries nowadays. Aftermath these eggs will have to be carried by belly-slaves in these farms, and not for free. The corporate elite will get its money back, with interest, at the cost of poor women at the other end of the world and 40+ yo single depressed salary-salve women in Silicon Valley, the surrogacy farms being the lucrative middleman. Apple and Facebook are not making any present, they are investing and bootstrapping a new market of human flesh. This is individual choice as you say James, but individualism can also cause global impacts affecting innocent people who have nothing to do with these individual choices, babies being the first victims, belly-salve not doing this by choice but by economical obligation being the second, then fooled Silicon Valley employees.

    Is this an individual choice
    or The boiling frog syndrome ?

    Living in the time of high unemployment (sic !).

    If you are Apple or Facebook female employee and you want to be a part of the career ladder in your firm ?
    Do you really have a choice ?

    If I want to join the Amazon Family can I refuse to wear my GPS movements tracker ?

    If I will be a future Tesco worker without accomodation ….
    Do I really have a choice ?
    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/property/propertynews/7633824/Tesco-mini-village-building-plans-will-make-it-more-powerful-than-government.html

    Or just to be a part of “predictive programming” in the Skinner box…….?

    As many a spy movie will tell you the bio-metric technologies can be fooled unless being conducted in person. So at the end of the day your passwords in voice-print are NOT safe.

    There’s no f##king WMDs! They’re probably just realizing that the propaganda of the beheadings is wearing out and they need to up the ante.

    The frozen eggs bit is really creepy on numerous levels, but it’s a really gross statement about how corporate America views women. “Yes, the fact that you have that inconvenient biological child bearing thing makes you a bad investment for shareholders, but here’s this great solution!” I don’t have a problem with the egg freezing bit on an ethical level and I’m not approaching the matter from some sort of traditional standpoint. I just think it’s a sad statement about how little our society, at least in the US, values the concept of motherhood. I think the United States has one of the worst, if not the worst policies when it comes to maternity leaves for companies which offer benefits in some shape or form. Not being able to afford supporting a family is our ‘one child’ policy. I know I’m over simplifying it and I don’t know what the answer is but still…

    Back to creepy: “I trust Apple and facebook with my precious cargo; they’re such ethical companies.” Oh wait, precious cargo is a kid right? Running out of time to edit… have to come back with that…

    I wonder what kind of perks they offer for the on the go high paying male CEOs =p

    • BennyB says:

      hmm… untapped reserves? 🙂 sorry…

      • BennyB says:

        “Can we interest you in one of our experimental GPS options? After all, why wait and go through the hassle of the unnecessary procedure when you know it’s something you’ll want to secure your child’s safety.”

        Okay, okay, I know… I guess that story just caught my imagination in the worst way 😉

  5. David Brown says:

    Gents- did you miss this one?

    The United States secretly shipped out of Iraq more than 500 tons of low-grade uranium dating back to the Saddam Hussein era, the Pentagon said Monday.

    The U.S. military spent $70 million ensuring the safe transportation of 550 metric tons of the uranium from Iraq to Canada, said Pentagon spokesman Brian Whitman.

    The shipment, which until recently was kept secret, involved a U.S. truck convoy, 37 cargo flights out of Baghdad to a transitional location, and then a transoceanic voyage on board a U.S.-government-owned ship designed to carry troops to a war zone, he said.

    The “yellowcake” uranium transfer was requested by the Iraqi government at the encouragement of the U.S. government, Whitman said.

    Also, Karl Rove apparently made a political calculation and was the one who didn’t want to admit there was WMDs after the fact because he didn’t want to bring up the issue again. This hurt the Repubs but comports with Rove’s theory of no responding to criticism … as can easily be seen by the way GW played rope-a-dope with his critics.

    • BennyB says:

      @David: I think the only value in listening to any of the latest batch yellow cake parrot chatter is to figure out what the strategic objectives of doing so are, as far as manipulating public opinion’s concerned. I’m obviously not in a position to say anything with certainty, but I strongly believe that just about anything of critical strategic importance in the invasion of Iraq is above politics. Meaning, if it were true then, we wouldn’t be hearing about it now, no matter who’s political favor it was in. At least not from anybody who couldn’t be subjected to the “shut up conspiracy theorist” treatment.

      Just to be clear: I’m not saying this in a manner critical of your comment specifically. It’s just a general statement in response 🙂

      I may be over simplifying it, but I think the chatter that we’re getting is strictly propagandistic and primarily just cover to justify military activities currently being carried out. The strategic objectives are vague at best, so giving people a few things to get frightened about is a strategy to convince people that we’re doing something important to keep us “safe”.

      Just speculation, but my sense is that the United States is trying to hang around and micro manage chaos, waiting to see if they can draw Iran into the conflict and pit anybody in the region they can in an effort to weaken them and at any of the other regional player’s expense, of course aside from Israel. I know it’s kind of gross to be so coldly analyzing a situation which is so terrible, but the best thing I think we can do right now is try to keep an eye on what’s going on and confront some of the propaganda to the extent that’s possible.

    my immediate thought on hearing about the egg freezing was that they plan to use the eggs in the same way they will be using the frozen seeds in the arctic seed vault. as needed, once population reduction is accomplished.

    a bonus: they can gm the eggs to fit their dreams. or nightmares.

    just a thought.

    From the WSJ: http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/SB10001424127887323628004578458882165244260

    “The idea is tantalizing: Once you land the job and man you want, you can have your frozen eggs shipped to your fertility clinic, hand him a semen collection cup and be on your way to parenthood.”

    Indeed, quite tantalizing and so romantic. Don’t forget to get your iStroke semen collection cup! =p
