    Best answer: Gary, I do not care about BA, however, will suggest a way to handle the Nerf thing. Nerf toys carry germs so require all Nerf toys to be dipped in "anti-bacterial wash" under the guise of preventing flu germs to spread.

Do this outdoors away from open flame; Fill the metal tub with Acetone, MEK, Methylene Chloride mix and dip toys...cover with lid so the mix wont evaporate...let set for 1 hour...toys will be gone...and pretend they were stolen by less fortunate kids...you will be a hero for Thursday...cant predict Friday so go shopping.

    We could all picture a happy life. Nice home, surrounded by friends and loved one's, plenty of money, ideally not have to work... No matter how committed I am I can't have this happy life. Peter Joseph put out a book called "The New Human Rights movement"... a simple way to put it is that it's very similar to communism but this version is different because believes automation, open-access and localised production can liberate humans from work. There would be no money and property and humans share everything because there is such an over abundance no one would WANT to own things Isn't happiness a human right? How can you argue against this unless you believe some humans are born like cattle, simply there to work and contribute while experiencing no joy or happiness.

    Best answer: Elisabeth Kolbert has been active in arguably a true foundation of Philosophy,
    Camille Paglia another^

    The decline of the Animal world today, which obviously includes humans.
    This foundation is showing why & how its crumbling, crumbling faster today.
    As if philosophy ever was of importance in our culture - I cannot believe
    that it has reached any such thing, even during its "start up" in Ancient Greece
    the cracks were obviously there...like evidence of the power & stability of a small
    but influential human culture which of course SURVIVED for thousands of years
    with our ancestor culture exposed to the full force of Darwinist conflict & untold
    savagery- yet it survived and laid the foundations for mass religion and new methods
    of writing/expression.
    Females though -I contend- were OUSTED from Ancient Greek knowledge gathering of
    the new systemic type, starting with Plato & running ALL THROUGH THE so-called
    Great "Peripatetics" & all the following Greek scholars.

    And because they powered all this by use of "technics/technique" there is a good case
    for saying that the GREEKS ALONE were & are totally responsible for the terrible mess
    that has befallen our education-and-its-present knowledge gathering AND APPRECIATION.

    The Greeks were responsible for this decline in understanding WHAT knowledge was for..
    & even HOW it should proceed.
    It didn't proceed with FOREIGNERS or with FEMALES AT ALL & so this in itself is reason
    enough for the lack of female philosophers now :
    But the other internal environment which was AND STILL IS degraded as-far-as-true-knowledge
    is concerned is the present environment of RELATIVE-ISM et al.

    And because it is "hardly talked about" means that today's current crop of graduates and
    "Phd's" and all think that it has "all been solved".
    Well there is news for them, which is this news..

    NO PHILOSOPHY can survive if it doesn't "search for the truth".
    One big example is that of the experienced philosopher Chomsky, who has
    come out & explicitly explained why & what is the MAIN THREAT now to
    philosophy - which is the sheer mistake that the majority of teaching Philosophers
    are engaged upon as they prefer to plod along with philosophy-as-history yet
    steadfastly unable to proceed to its rational current conclusion - that philosophy is
    in DIRE trouble today not least because our culture -the ENVIRONMENT Culture - is too.


    Any reasonable student could understand that these such Philosophers are only protecting
    their jobs and that they do this by saying that they "are not qualified" in environmental
    studies !

    But they or the majority of them are lying, just as senior politicians lie so as NOT to
    "rock the boat" ("fib" & refuse to give the truth) with their conspirator-so-called "parties".

    And more lie because of the dreadful teaching in which they were obliged to undergo..
    "subjective learning" which just like relativism is naïve & stupid as it is plain wrong.


    So perhaps possible Greek & female philosophers & Greek & female scientists were lucky
    not to have joined in with the popular new writing & technical breakthroughs in Ancient Greece
    after all - they may well have gone down the tunnelled system called "technique, or tech
    studies.
    But all along this male preserve carried with it the same code which is does to this day,
    a code which is becoming more& more vital with every passing day & every passing year.

    And that is the "secret code" which we know as "learning from mistakes"....
    The code which is appropriately relevant to BOTH our learning environment (Philosophy And
    science) and to the Environment all around us.
    For the environment All-around-us is subject to OUR BEST Philosophy,
    it is also subject to OUR BEST science.
    And unfortunately IT IS FOUND "WANTING", threatened and crumbling all
    because our teachers through their "fallible institutions" have not been taught
    how they can breakthrough the status quo- and the status quo of what needs
    to be changed.
    So a real toxic environment for philosophy, its students & its female participants too.

    So like us any intending female students should take-a-long-look at not just what
    the environment is "out there" but also how it could be changed "out there".
    It can of course be changed within philosophy, especially objective philosophy
    which is always geared to those twin environs just mentioned.
    And reinterpreting the mistakes commonly made here by subjectivists and all
    (even as the present day teaching-of-teachers) can be exhilarating and liberating
    for such female students- note the MeToo movement which came to light from
    a subverting of the truth of male-on-female crimes.
    So there are platforms from which we & they can break-out from the constraints
    that bind us all ; more importantly WE HAVE TO TRY as I & many others have
    said - we cannot let the thing that is this real environment stall any or all of the
    truthful, better choices available to us going forward.
    Like us all..female students have-to-take-this risky but totally rewarding pathway
    to better & better knowledge.
    And so to a better & better Environment, FOR This knowledge.

    ^ Camille Paglia spend many years in higher learning - calling out those "worm like"
    social scientists who have been responsible for present day, relativist teaching
    like that of the Husserl & Heidegger school for example.
