Four chosen. I have already personally got rid of underwear.

Only four? I'd rather just get rid of everything but four.

OK, I went with bugs (altho they are fascinating creatures), clocks/timers/calendars, and STDs. Now I've got a tie going between Donald Trump and canned meat.....I'll have to get back to you.

I picked reality shows, bipartisan politics, drug cartels, and STDs... although "the freedom to breed without first passing some standardized IQ test for ten-year-olds" was very tempting.

A mixture of the profane and profound:

teeth whiteners
Donald Trump
drug cartels
guns

The rest I can live with.

I selected bipartisan politics, overlong and overspun film trailers, drugs cartels ( they're a bit naughty )

and ummm..the IQ test for prospective parents... I try to reign in my latent fascism etc but sometimes it just comes out... :oops:

Where would we get our heroin and cocaine if there were no drug cartels? Keep the cartels.

I went with:

- vehicles that run on gasoline and drug cartels, for international/trade reasons
- STDs and (its balancer) the freedom to breed without passing an IQ test, for domestic

Straight from the manufacturers! The drug cartels keep them poor and keep the price high, screwing both sides. I was watching a video about a guy who processes coca leaves and basically makes the cocaine, and it's cheap enough to do that he can't make more money doing anything else, but he's kept at the poverty level by how ruthless the cartels in how little they pay him. Cutting out the middle man would result in higher quality and lower prices.

I paused at this one for a few seconds thinking what a BCB breeding approval quiz would look like.

I figured it would look something like a writing test on a specific musical topic with extra points accrued for the times you mention the Velvet Underground and capped off with a final question "Rate your like/dislike of the Beatles on a scale of 1 - 10, 10 being the highest."
