a) (1)They cost alot of money. (2)All operations have risks of adverse side effects that perhaps out weigh the benifits. (2) Why not just lower your standards instead of compelling others to change.

b) 'Bi' meaning to and 'gamy' from the Greek root 'Gamos' meaning marrage. What is wrong with dule marrage? In my own oppinion is is very bad because there are a limited mount of girls and if people could have more then one wife it would be much harder to find a girl. Just think the super pimp guys would have lots of wifes and nerdy guys like me would have none. historicly societies with more men then avalible women become quite violent, probly because of all that pent up gelousy and what not. Oh and that bit of info was from my Antropology class and the case study that was used was the Yonomomo people of south america. I have give you all the details on it if it is necisary. So in conclusion I dont like bigomy because I want girls also.

Anyway, I think the answer to being happy is lowering your standards... but I am really just pulling stuff out of my ass. so, yeah.

a) I think in a social context, it can be considered bad that girls are being encouraged to alter their body through surgery to become what everyone considers beautiful or sexy. It's definitely not a very direct bad thing, but indirectly it affects a lot of people mentally or psychologically(and in certain cases, physically). A similar thing not really considered bad at the time, but probably considered bad now is how paler skinned women were more attractive which implied that dark skinned working class and African Americans were uglier. Girls had to carry around parasols and probably not do any outdoor activity to become pale. And if surgery existed back then, I'd bet rich girls would get skin tone adjustments. I think breast implants are a bad thing in certain contexts, but there are also many situations where it might be okay or even good.

b) Bigamy probably shouldn't exist. If it did though, it should go both ways. As of now, I'm under the impression that only guys can have more than 1 wife under bigamy, but women are stuck to 1 guy who probably will have more than 1 spouse. That's what is wrong with it if that's the case. Also, I don't think someone should be married to two people. If you want to bang two people, bang two people, don't marry them. I think we're far enough "ahead" right now to look past marriage as something that happens if you have sex with someone. Anyways, if you did end up with multiple spouses, they'd both be messed up in the head and have grudges and stuff, so I don't think it'd be very good either way. If for some reason you believe in a bigamous relationship, I think you'd be open minded enough to carry it through without an official certificate of being married. I have no clue how benefits and taxes work for multiple spouses, but if you want to do it for monetary reasons only, then you probably shouldn't do it either.

Breast implants are bad because they're all hard and stuff. It's deceptive advertising.
