Yep. It has eluded the human race since we left the swamp.  Religions, Monarchs, Leaders, and John Lennon have all promised it, but we have shit the bed every time. 

This one is a lock. 

We guarantee that if we sell enough of these things, get filthy rich, and buy a lap giraffe; world peace is mosdef gonna happen. This is a tremendous solution; as logical as building a big ass wall to fix the ‘jobs being automated by machines and AI’ problem.   So if things go south, remember it’s all your fault.  Shoulda got the card, squire.
