And I wasn't that good.
It is absolutely possible to find examples of positive correlation between mask use and lowered spread, but it's also possible to find examples of the opposite, and of no difference.
If it works, why are there so many cases where it just doesn't?
So, being unable to afford a house, even with a 6-figure salary, and thus renting is a "choice" now? Hmmm. I'm sure many people choose to rent, but I feel like most renters, especially those with good salaries, do so because the cost of ownership is too damn high these days, and the tax incentives aren't what they used to be.

What's being argued isn't that point: rather, it's the question of how many workers move to better positions in that industry.
Even if 100% of the people running restaurants/retail come from within the industry, that fact has nothing to say about how many within the industry make that move to owning operating.
A modern reactor block has a net capacity of about 1.3 GW.
Last year, 1.4 GW net have been installed in just wind power in Germany. Sure that's not a good comparison, since both over-provisioning and storage have to be accounted for, but it just goes to show how quickly alternatives can be scaled up (side note, the newly installed capacity in 2017 was 5.3 GW).
The problem with nuclear power is logistics and time. There's only so many specialists for planning and building nuclear facilities plus most countries simply cannot afford to have more than dozen or so under construction at any given time.
The countries that'd benefit the most from cheap and reliable electricity ae incidentally countries that can neither afford nor operate nuclear power for various reasons. That's not just political instability and lack of expertise, but also geography. You need stable ground and cooling, so dry regions with seasonal flooding are off the table.
Not to mention the enormous amount of additional infrastructure, from substations to stable grids. Oh, and nuclear reactors are crap at load following so unless you have substantial baseload (e.g. heavy industry), you'd need somewhere to dump excess electricity.
2) Even if we assume that a $15 minimum wage would eliminate a notable number of jobs, elimination of jobs is not equivalent to unemployment. We, as a society, are okay with, going by your own argument, eliminating all the $5/hour jobs (with state minimum wages being $7.25+) because it does not lead to significantly less overall employment. Do you have evidence this would not also be true with a $15 minimum wage?
* I haven't actually enabled users to configure this, but it's just some variables called 'indent' and `lineLength` in the code
If we go back past the 1900's, the only workers that consistently owned their own property were farmers. Mortgages didn't become a thing until after the 1860's, and it wasn't until the 1890's that they became common. Before mortgages, workers did not have the lump sum of money required to purchase a home.
I am specifically disinterested in existing within an echo chamber.
When I search for a topic, I am looking for information that is most faithful to objective reality. A detailed explanation of the limits of our current understanding, or why my understanding / model is inadequate is orders of magnitude more valuable to me than something that will affirm that I am a smart, special person. Google used to be exceptionally capable of delivering those kinds of results, even if it took some work refining search terms. Over the preceding decade, their effectiveness in this regard has significantly diminished.
It's not actually. One produces individuals who constantly complain about any perceived injustice. And another produces people who strive to improve themselves in the face of adversity.
Perhaps you can avoid "unburning" it by some other chemical process (which is why I was asking this) but simply pumping the CO2 somewhere does not seem a reasonable option, the only place on Earth that can easily hold that much of CO2 gas is the general atmosphere where it already resides.
If there were no ad blockers I'd stop using the internet for the same reason I stopped watching broadcast and cable television: too many ads.
Sure, I see what could be done better. Sure, I could drive a meandering path there. Sure, I could somehow convince the opponents of my ideas that they actually came up with them, and they would then drive those with gusto. But why would I do that? What difference does it make?
Mastery, autonomy and purpose. There's none of that in the soul sucking corporate experience.
Which as I said elsewhere to downvotes, leads to heavy discrimination based on income/class and less supply for the neediest of folk
What year did you work there as a teen, if I may ask?
