You're sick of chocolate for, what? 1 day? :) Then scarcity (at least,
*individual* scarcity in your stomach and nervous system) strikes back

Same way, you can be fed up with inet (i feel this way many times) but
then scarcity of info in your head strikes again.

According to your argument, just by knowing there's plenty of water on
planet Earth (for a single individual POV) we wouldn't need to drink no
more :)

Excuse if my english skills go astray when trying to make elaborate
statements :-p
