    Of course HHGTTG has already been mentioned so I'll just add "me too" to that before adding my other two: Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, and its sequel Lila.

    I've read both of those several times and always get completely sucked into the stories.

    Can you remember the Segway?

    Yes.

    And how we all thought of it as the new way of human transportation?

    Uh, no. A few people thought that and tried to hype it as such, but what I remember was the vast majority of us thinking it was a stupid niche "solution" to a non problem. The range of existing vehicles, including bicycles and mobility scooters and motorized skateboards, already addressed basically all of the uses a Segway could be applied to and it was nothing more than a gimmicky application of interesting technology. The idea that it was going to revolutionize anything at all was a pipe dream held by people enamored of the technology and laughed off by everyone else.

    Good to know that Social Security & Medicare & the makeup of the Supreme Court have "no real relevance". Here I was naively thinking those things mattered.

    Not to say I disagree with your points about further military action, expanded domestic surveillance, and favoritism for big money & big industry -- those observations are spot on and depressing -- but to extrapolate from those the conclusion that "there is no difference" is just flat out wrong. There are real differences and those differences do matter. While I would love to get someone in office who would really shake up the system for the benefit of all (a guy can dream, eh?), at least we should recognize and acknowledge the difference between a candidate who expressly wants to dismantle the social safety net and one who does not. Pretending that difference doesn't exist serves only destructive purposes.

    As /u/ToixStory says, the fact that the same big donors give to both is just rich people hedging their bets. The idea that this means "there is officially no difference between Jeb and Hillary" is ludicrous. Yes, they're both going to make sure the rich get richer and that corporate interests are protected and that the war machine continues to march on, and yes they're both corrupt power-hungry liars, but just off the top of my head here are a few obvious differences:

    - Jeb will work with Republicans in Congress to dismantle Social Security, Medicare, and any other social support program they think they can weaken; Hillary will will not. Even if she capitulates and compromises on some of that she will definitely not make gutting those programs a central goal of her time in office like Jeb will.

    - Jeb will work with Republicans in Congress to undermine as much of the ACA as the courts will allow; Hillary will not.

    - If the Republicans in Congress pass a bill defunding Planned Parenthood, Jeb would sign it; Hillary would veto it.

    - Supreme Court Justice appointments. Duh.

    So the bottom line is, if the election really does come down to this choice between a giant douche and a turd sandwich, unless you're in the 1% Clinton will fuck your shit up a lot less than Bush will.

    I don't know why anyone would be surprised that a debt doesn't magically disappear when you get old. You borrow money; you are expected to pay it back. Do people really take out student loans and then think "if I just wait long enough this debt will mysteriously go away"? Hey, maybe I can rack up five figures on my credit cards and then just wait until I'm gray and say "oh, you still want me to pay that back?"
