Fight hunger with surgery

Once and for all fix

It appears that your species has an inexplicable problem with resource allocation.

As a result, some of your carbon units experience a shortfall of nutrition, while others experience an excess.

Having studied your species and considered the available options, we have devised a simple and effective solution.

Those who complain that they do not have enough to eat are to be offered immediate bariatric surgery to reduce their stomach volume.

Once this is complete, their hunger will be more easily assuaged by the meagre amounts of food available to them. And thus the litany of complaints will soon be ended, at a modest cost.

After all, if you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day; but set a man on fire and he'll be warm for the rest of his life …
