Kudos to NASA for not having Neil Armstrong's first words on the moon be "That's one small step for an American, one giant leap for America!" They could easily have done it. It was 1969 after all.

I especially hate bachelorette parties. For mine, I made my bestie promise that there would be NO wearing of penis-shaped hats, NO wearing of a veil, NO Suck-for-a-Buck games, NO scavenger hunts where we have to ask guys for their underwear. She planned a perfectly lovely evening at my favorite pub with my favorite girls.

The reason why most societies have much difficulty to solve major problems is because they focus too much on that one specific thing that will generate a short term fix. Rather, they should focus on the big picture and how each factor in society interacts with each other. After analyzing how each factor interacts with each other, find a leverage point that will generate an overall long term benefit. Additionally, seeing the trends and predicting where things will go will help determine the best solution to the problem.
