Save the Trees, the Money, and the Spines! Textbooks are a burden in three ways: They are expensive (college or grade-school), they take an enormous amount of paper to make, and after carrying many of them over long periods of time (grade-school and college), students' spines will deteriorate, and we will have hunchbacked adults. eTextbooks are cheaper (between $10-$50 at most), lighter (you can carry all of your books on a 1.3 pound iPad), and they don't use paper, which helps out the environment! Paper textbooks are simply a huge burden in the Technology Age.
Not Entertaining, Let Other Sports Have a Shot at the Olympics. I have watched wrestling during the Olympics on NBC this past summer, and I have to say, like soccer, it is pretty boring for the majority of the match, and then, there is one moment where one of the competitors slips, and the other wins. Since it has been a sport since 1896, why not let a modern sport have a go at the games, like sport climbing, or roller sports. These events have NEVER been a part of the games and they deserve a chance too, even if it is just for one Olympics.
NFL = Homophobe to the MAX! It seems to me that, like the military, many people are uncomfortable with homosexuals, and also like the military, seems to have a impromptu 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' policy. Some of the people who are playing in the NFL are so homophobic that they would rather quit than play with a gay man. They might also resort to violence, and these threats are what is keeping homosexuals out of professional sports. This needs to change. Believe it or not, Homosexuals are people too, just like every other group of people that has ever been persecuted (Mexicans, Women, African-Americans, Asians, Jews, etc.), and they deserve rights, including the right to play sports without ridicule.
Different Places, Different Cultures I suppose one could try, but it would be near impossible to run, because all of the different regions of the world have their own traditions and culture, and almost any law that you would set would be a violation of someone's culture somewhere. Even if you made these laws anyway, they would be near impossible to enforce, as the world's population is spread over many continents. Each country has enough trouble governing itself right now. There is no way every country would agree to a single government to rule over them all.
Science: The Double Edged Sword Just about every single major scientific or technological breakthrough has two sides: A good side, and a bad side. For instance, Nuclear Fission/Fusion. The good: We can use it for power. The Bad: One atomic bomb is devastating to the planet. Also, the Internet. The good: We can use it to make purchases, do research, and share our views and opinions. The bad: It be used for identity theft, scams, and porn. The bad edge of science hasn't killed us yet, but when a crazy enough dictator gets his hands on said technology, the world as we know it will have changed.
