Why you should treat modern life and nature as the same thing

This is why I love and believe in technology, treating modern life and nature as the same thing:
If man has evolved the ability to override his evolutionary imperatives, then there must have been an advantage to his genes in doing so. Therefore, even the emancipation from evolution that we so fondly imagine we have achieved must itself have evolved because it suited the replication of genes.
by Matt Ridley, in The Red Queen: Sex and the Evolution of Human Nature.

To all credit card issuers in Brazil

Get a clue ! This is the 3rd time I receive an offer in a week. My bank already offers me one with no fees so why on earth are you trying to seduce me with one at 2.55-whatever/month ?

You should be actually wasting marketing money by telling me how much you'd rip me off in comparison with your competition if I don't pay you back monthly ...
