Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

Sometimes a joke is worth ten petition drives.  It can get the message across when people aren't looking.  So I dare you, put a mission themed joke under the relevant evidence post and put and link up on this discussion and I will go take a look and give you a +1 creativity or +1 courage depending on how funny it is.

My jokes -

A friend of mine asked "Did you hear you can save the world and grow more things in you garden if you add charcoal to it?  I tried it."  "What happened?"  "It wasn't doing anything, so I added lighter fluid and a match and now my wife's tomatoes are burned."

"I am so upset.  My market won't sell me organic salt."

"Good news, that river dolphin that they had thought gone extinct.  They found it.  It's item 12 on the menu at a local five star restaurant."

Okay, I hope this makes Alchemy laugh and I hope you bring a bit of levity to saving the world.

Here is a good joke: http://urgentinvoke.com
INVOKE is a ten-week propaganda game inspired by the game EVOKE.

EVOKE is a game commissioned by the World Bank, an international financial institution widely criticised for its practise of using crippling debt to impose its socially and economically destructive policies on the Third World. EVOKE challenges players to become “social innovators” and devise solutions to the world’s social and environmental problems.

As game-playing social innovators, we gladly accept this challenge. And after extensive research and development we are proud to present: INVOKE.

As our contribution to the EVOKE game process, INVOKE is a game even more brilliant and world-changing than the World Bank’s EVOKE.

Our game INVOKES the guise of progressive social activism and community organising to promote pro-capitalist ideology. Its implicit message is that the problems of the world – including hunger, poverty, environmental destruction, injustice and disease – can and must be solved within the logic of the free market system.

The objective of INVOKE is to ideologically demobilize the next generation of potential anti-capitalist activists all over the world. It targets educated layers of African youth – young people most in danger of critiquing and opposing the World Bank’s policies in their region.

After receiving their education, players will “graduate” to become “certified” in World Bank style “innovation”.

So help us socially innovate the world! Play INVOKE, or become a fan by joining our Facebook group.
Thanks for that - it made me laugh.

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
