## 1. perfect food

Synopsis—Basically, a food is perfect, if and only if, it is the cheapest thing that offers you the nutritions that you require. Else, you are wasting your money.

As a result, pizza, for example, is clearly not perfect, but rather a waste, because think: do you really think the process of making a pizza slice is the cheapest way to get 285 calories, 12g protein, 10g fat, and 36g carbs?

Think of the operation cost of pizza making, which requires running an oven and baking. Imagine the energy bill, and time needed. Clearly pizza is a wasteful way of creating nutritional values, as there are many ways we can optimize the process.

On the other hand, you could get what a pizza slice would give you, by simply frying some egg, with cheese, and potatoes, for example, at a cheaper price point. I'm not saying that this is perfect either, but it suffices to show you that pizza is clearly a waste as it is very easy to think of the same (nutritional value-wise) at a cheaper price point.

But people buy pizza coz they think it's sounds crunchy when you eat it. Fuck that nonsense. There is no nutrition in crunch. This makes pizza a form of drug that creates artificial need (by the allure of its crunch and smell) to cause people to make the irrational decision of buying it. #BanFuckingPizza.

### 1.1. i'm smart

Say that $\mathcal{F} = \{f_1, f_2, \ldots, f_n\}$ is the set of all foods. For example, $f_1$ could be fried chicken breast, $f_2$ could be orange, etc.

Also say that for any food $f_i \in \mathcal{F}$, $c_i$ is the cost of $f_i$ (i.e. money and time needed to be spent in order to get $f_i$ into ur belly), and $n_i$ is the nutritional values that your body obtains after eating $f_i$.

Then, if your body needs nutritional values in interval $[n_a, n_b]$ (for whatever health goal you have), then:

Definition 1. Food $f_i \in \mathcal{F}$ is said to be perfect, if and only if: $$n_a \le n_i \le n_b$$ and, for all $f_j \in \{f_l \in \mathcal{F} : n_a \le n_l \le n_b\}$: $$c_i \le c_j$$

### 1.2. wat if food fails to meet Definition 1?

Well, then it's a waste of money. Period. Could be a little waste to you, depending on how spoiled you are, but it remains a waste nonetheless, and you will be at a loss.

Today's food is mostly heavily a waste of money as they fail to meet Definition 1. Sadly, the concept of food —today— is looked from the view of taste and joy, very similar to how drugs are looked at.

Therefore, it's fair to say that today's food industry has morphed into a fork of the drug industry, where unnecessary additives are added to lure people in in order to take maximum money. It is no longer only nutritional. It is now partly nutritional, and partly wasteful to fool idiots to get a slice of their money (almost everyone on this planet).

### 1.3. now wat?

We need to find a principled methodology to objectively guide us on the process of creating perfect food. I will keep you updated when I nail this. Plz stay tuned.

## 2. thoughts on prisons

### 2.1. what is a prison?

Definition 2. A place to store suspects until the court figures out what to do to them (aka “jail”).

Definition 3. A place to store bad peeps until they become good peeps.

Definition 4. A place to store bad peeps as a form punishment. The degree of the punishment is determined by the length of time spent in storage.

Definition 6. Any combination of Definition 2, Definition 3, Definition 4, or Definition 5. This gives us the following number of extra variations: $$\sum_{i=2}^{4} {4 \choose i} = 6+4+1 = 11$$

### 2.2. thoughts on Definition 2

If the storage is causing no harm on the suspect, then the suspect could be stored indefinitely. This implies things like, a very comfortable storage with nice bed, food, no harm on income, no harm on psychology, no mixing with bad people that may corrupt him, etc.

But usually the storage does cause some harm (e.g. shit bed, mixing with shit people, etc). Thus, Definition 2 is only good if the expected harm with the free suspect is more than the expected harm with the stored suspect, which depends on:

• How slow the court is to finally figure out shit.
• How likely the suspect is to run away if he is not stored.
• How much loss would happen if the suspect runs away (e.g. how much money gets permanently lost).
• How much suffering will the suspect endure by being stored; depends on how shit the place is.

Generally, I think there is a lot of room in reality of making Definition 2 a good tool in a legal system if the storage is not for too long, and the storage is not too harmful on the suspect.

### 2.3. thoughts on Definition 3

Definition 3 is basically a synonym to the naturally occurring concept known as “parent”:

• If the bad person is a child — then he should be parented by his biological parents, or relatives. Evolution has already made parents, and family members, evolve to be good trainers of their children, but a government is not evolved as much as them. Therefore, resorting to use a government facility as a parenting facility is suboptimal, and we better use what billions of years of evolution has given us: biological parents or relatives.

Involving the government to offer parenting services goes under micromanagement, ends up wasting too much money, opens the door for a corrupt government to raise such bad people as good voters for them, and lack enough personal touch in fixing the bad people.

• If the bad person is an adult — then it means that the time of parenting is gone. In such case, you better give up on parenting, and look for other things.

Practically, when governments store bad people in prisons, with the claim of making them better people, they often make them into worse people, as they mix up with possibly worse people in the prison.

So those who claim that prisons are as per Definition 3, they are indirectly saying that prisons are bad.

### 2.4. thoughts on Definition 4

Let's look at the extreme ends of punishment by storage:

• The most peaceful form of storage — a comfortable hotel. In such case, it's a pure waste of money.
• The most painful form of storage — either (depending on country):
• A solitary confinement: so much money is spent on feeding the bad doer, electricity, building maintenance, and guard salaries.
• An imprisonment with a bunch of horrible gangs: so much money is wasted, plus the imprisoned people turned into worse people (possibly also with herpes).

On the bright side, Definition 4 can have a deterring effect via fear, as it may cause the good people feel that becoming bad people is a bad idea.

But, there are cheaper ways of achieving fear and deterrence of good people from becoming bad, that does not have the side effects of Definition 4, such as:

• Monetary fines.
• Firing from job.
• Lashing/flocking.
• Execution.

Such methods hardly cost any money (i.e. no money to spend on food, building maintenance, guards salaries, etc), and hardly has any effect of mixing bad people with worse people (and hence less chance of corrupting people beyond their corruption).

So, Definition 4 is surely a bad idea, as there are equally effective methods that are cheaper with less side effects.

### 2.5. thoughts on Definition 5

A Gulag is basically a forced labour camp, with huge negative emotional thoughts around it due to Stalin. But —philosophically— what is a forced labour camp? Is “capitalism” a huge forced labour camp? Is life a forced labour camp?

See, it's fundamentally a more complex problem. Just because Stalin abused the concept, and showed us that it can be bad, it does not mean that the concept itself is fundamentally bad. We just need to have a deeper look right now.

What if someone shits on streets, or on someone's property? IMO it's fair to have the law enforcement force him clean the streets and the properties. Is it forced labour? Yes. Is it a form of Gulag? Yes. Is it bad? No. It seems a great disciplinary action to fairly punish the bad doer in kind.

For the vast majority of cases, we don't need forced labour camps, as capitalism and the monetary system functions as a huge Gulag (which is good). Hence, often paying monetary fees to compensate for damage caused by bad doers is a good idea, and is practically a good form Gulag.

My thoughts are:

• Stalin-style Gulag is very bad.
• Making people who shit in streets, to clean the streets, is a good kind of Gulag.

### 2.6. thoughts on Definition 6

Since Definition 6 is a mixture of Definition 2, Definition 3, Definition 4 and Definition 5, my thoughts on it is also a mixture of what's in Section 2.2, Section 2.3, Section 2.4 and Section 2.5.

### 2.7. summary

These are good:

• Storing high-risk suspects, comfortably in isolation, until the court figures out the verdict.
• Making people, who shit in streets, clean the streets.
