Are tensions, conflicts, and wars permanent part of the human condition? How can we avoid wars or mitigate the ravages of war?
Guy called Robert Zapolsky was studying a nasty troop of baboons for 20 years until one day some of them ate contaminated meat and died. Turned out it was the big, testosterone fuelled males that were always fighting that had died. The social dynamic in the group completely changed, now 20 years on they still rarely fight and spend most of their time grooming each other.

Why is there something rather than nothing ?
Maybe we all live in a virtual reality simulation but are only just beginning to see the cracks through quantum mechanic's experiments, a bit like in the Matrix or the Truman show. Once we have a unified theory we will break free of the terrible experiment and destroy our giant extra-universal creators.

What will society/technology companies do to improve gender equality in the technology sector?
Well I certainly hope they don't start hiring women over men just because they are women like they do in some organisations here in England. The best candidate for the job must be the best applicant for the job regardless of gender. If there are two equally skilled candidates though, a male and a female then choose the woman, unless you are a small business and she is pregnant of course because this will cost your business a tonne

Why do we criticize stupid people?
We also criticise smart people with terms like 'nerd' or 'geek'. But at the end of the day, ask yourself; in what situations bar comedy is stupidity a favourable personality trait? It is strange though that it would be perceived as wrong to poke fun at a wheel-chair bound guy yet it is acceptable to do so with a stupid guy.. when it is likely that both people are equally un-responsible for their traits

Are private universities worth the money for a bachelor's degree?
No in a purely platonic sense, you can learn everything from a degree and more on the internet for free https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NNnIGh9g6fA But yes in terms of making connections with others that may get you where you want to be. Ideal combo = learn online and spend lots of time socialising elsewhere
