Cocoa beans are loaded with things that are good for you included saturated and monounsaturated fats. What's bad for you is all the sugar (carbs) they add to cover its bitter taste. You should only eat chocolate that's 70% or higher cocoa.
It would appear that we have reached the limits of what it is possible to achieve with computer technology, although one should be careful with such statements, as they tend to sound pretty silly in 5 years.

Patents are a privilege, not a Right. Patents exist to encourage innovation. Clearly, they are not. It's time to get rid of them.
Intellectual property is an oxymoron. Ideas belong to the commons. The law even says so. Patents are a violation of this. But they were suppose to make things better despite the violation of the peoples' Right to ideas. They do not. It's time to get rid of them.
Patents are not needed by pharmaceutical companies since the only research they fund is to modify their own drugs so they can get another patent on a variation when the current patent runs out. (And, of course, nobody else can get a patent on any variation because its too close to the original.) Funding new drug research comes from grants from the gov't or other outside organizations.
Anyone who thinks a paywall is necessary just haven't looked at PBS. A nation-wide TV system that survives only on donations. If you have a high-quality product, you don't need to force people to pay you; you can thrive on donations alone.
I find that many writers and artists completely ignore two markets: eBay and craigslist. They still want a middleman even with ebooks. In the new world of epublishing, you have to do your own sales or you're just as likely to get screwed as with traditional outlets. :(
