What does bm mean?

THANK YOU.  Ive been wondering that too!

I thought maybe it was some form of "bumping" (which a bird just did to a big picture window in my house as I wrote that sentence lol) or it was someone saying the threat was "bullshit"... bm=bowel movement..

newbs.
You believe evolution and there is no evidence for that. Where is the fossil record of a half man half ape. I've only ever heard about it in reading.

Since BM stood for bowel movement long before the internet existed, that still pops into my head each time I see it.

I tried to find time to watch the whole thing, but life has been interfering.  I will try to work my way through it soon, because I love this guy and I love visions of the future.

But I have to say that I was a bit put off by the part in which he was saying that our bathrooms would be equipped to test our urine and feces and tell us if our diets are too high in salt or too high in fat, and our hairbrushes will test our hair and reveal insights into our health, and so on. 

This would be amazing. 

But what percentage of humanity would have access to these wonderful tools that are already in development?  I would guess a very small, very privileged percentage of humanity. 

I promise I'll come back and watch the whole thing soon.

Anyone else have thoughts?
