The equimarginal principle tells us to maximize utility by selecting the highest values of good or services, giving marginal utility per dollar until our budget is used up.

Probably none at all, considering a woodchuck eats grains, not wood. It would be a useless ability.

Brian Molko, the androgynous bisexual lead singer of "Placebo." Yes, he can really look like a girl if he wants to.

This question is egocentric at best, assuming that nothing happens if you aren't there to witness it personally. Considering that lots of things happen when we aren't there, why would sound be any different?

If a tree falls in a forest and no one is there to hear it, it still transmits or "makes" a sound. There's just no one there to receive or "hear" the sound.

As many as until I get tired of doing it.

Is Karl Marx sexy?
Sexiness is a subjective quality. Personally, I'm not attracted to a rotting corpse.

"Planet Earth" in February 1981 and his real last name is "Bates."

I would probably have to say "Orbital."

(Unless you are getting technical about a "band," and, at that point, it is "Oasis.")

Because the fish are, essentially, excreting wastes in that tank of water. Imagine if we urinated and defecated in a swimming pool every day and only cleaned the pool and changed the water once a week?

Tax forms are complicated, because they are created with the ability to evade taxes. If we merely had flat taxes and no ability to write off anything, taxes would be really damn simple, now wouldn't they?

...

But no one wants to pay taxes, and those who propose the flat tax are generally wealthy individuals. Note that Steve Forbes' flat tax proposal raised the tax rate for the poorest tax bracket and lowered the wealthiest tax bracket by more than half? I just laughed when he said we should only tax wages, not interest, because that would likely mean that Steve Forbes wouldn't pay taxes at all. Now isn't that the American Dream? To get wealthy and powerful enough to change the laws in your own favor?

You're better off with a complex tax system at this point, because no one in Congress will do any meaningful tax reform that won't hurt the working class--i.e., you. I would suggest doing your taxes online, because it is all explained in a far simpler fashion and all the figures are plugged in for you afterwards.

The meaning of "everything"?

I guess this goes into the realm of opinion and not fact, but I think that God, indeed, did create everything and everyone out of love. Why to people have children? To pass on their knowledge for the future. In the same way, God created us to pass on His knowledge to us. Why is life difficult? Because, like our own children, we won't accept answers that are merely handed to us. We have to stumble on these answers ourselves, and, collectively, look where it has gotten us? We have a highly advanced civilization with war and violence (perhaps ironically enough) at its lowest level ever.

We are here to learn something, and that lesson is different for everyone. Relying on the past is what got us in this mess to begin with, and, as long as we continue to repeat history, whether by accident or through historicist romanticism, we will not learn that lesson.

Why not more?
I manipulate no one. I am just very forthright on what I believe. No more intellectual ambiguity.

Why not more? Because I don't believe it to be right. Honesty will always prevail over deception.
