Consumer tech, everything right now is just awful, especially phones. They are all blank slabs of consumerism with no individuality or interesting features. What I hate most of all though is that fucking everything is moving from physical buttons to capacitive (touch) ones. I really want my physical keyboard back.

Everything right now is not awful in regards to phones! Sure high end ones are boring and struggling to define themselves and not be mediocre, but low end ones are finally quite competent and perhaps more often than not have the features you want. Customizing them is possible with stickers/cases/home screen wallpapers.

i am unsure about the move away from physical buttons as well, blackberry is probably going to release 3 new android phones in 2017, could be worth looking into that brand, I believe at least one of their 2017 phones will have a physical keyboard

"but low end ones are finally quite competent and perhaps more often than not have the features you want."

That is definitely a good thing, but I'm a tech nerd, I am not interested in the low end phones. I care about the high end stuff which is just composed of bland slabs that sacrifice battery life for the sake of being thin.

Blackberry will indeed be releasing a phone with a physical keyboard and that will probably be my next phone, I just can't stand typing on a screen. More importantly however, I'm voting with my vallet to show that there is indeed an interest in physical buttons.

Gardening/farming. Most people on focus on calories per acre instead of nutrition per acre. It's making our food terrible.

Also - wife's feeling it's an obligation to pleasure their man in every way possible. But I'm aexually frustrated right now, so that one's a little biased.

modern farming is for sure not done the best it can be, do you believe genetically modified crops are part of the problem, or could potentially be part of the solution?

I think they're wholly unnecessary, honestly. The problems they "fix" can be addressed with biodiversity, crop rotation, and proper soil management.

The Job Market. So much of the trouble in our society would be gone if there was good work for those that want ti.

In your opinion, why is the Job Market poor atm, and what can be done to fix it?

In the U.S. quite a few reasons. The biggest would be cost of compliance with labor and business regulations. If you have a choice would you hire employees in a country where every hire is a potential lawsuit ? After that you have the U.S. corporate tax structure that double and triple taxes businesses .

What you are left with are "SAFE" businesses from a legal/liability standpoint.

I've got nothing. But I'm sure it will be interesting.
