    You're an ant standing at the edge of the ball. No different than any other point on the ball--all points on the ball are on the edge of the ball.

    1) I don't believe the data--the rest of the economy doesn't make sense for unemployment that low. I think the gig economy is responsible for this--there are now many jobs that have no hiring...
  14. Why do you think they're always hiring? Consider...

    There's always fast food places, dollar stores, convenience stores, Walmarts, etc. around any area. The only requirement for those jobs is, "Able to breathe."

    Person? No, it's some company. It didn't fall 1000 points, so there's no need for America to go build a nuclear cannon on the moon.
