A crash course in changing the world.

IMAGINE1- Wait, We're Making It Pass 2012?

As the quirky title might suggest, I'm not normally one who thinks too
far into the future. 1-2 years is still a long time for me. Doesn't
hurt to try, though. Here goes.

In 2020, I see myself staring down at the world from my Intergalatic
Space Extreme Explorer(We'll call it ISEE, and make jokes about getting them in convenience stores), being thanked via
video satellite up-link by two potential American presidential elects for saving the Earth from an impending comet collision and being asked for personal support of their party. Alchemy will call, I'll put them both on hold and answer with 'Word.' Incidentally, I'll be able to time travel in my space-car to a time where that greeting was actually in style.

Okay. Maybe that's a little too literal.

In 2020, space cars would be nice, but I think I'd be happy to to be in school. Yes, I've already graduated high school, but I'm passionate about things I don't understand now, and I hope that is one thing that won't change. Physics, chemistry, biology, sociology, engineering, astronomy . Even if I started this year, I think I'd be okay with expanding my knowledge in school for 10 years, although I severely doubt I will be for that entire duration.

I'd like to have published a book by then, and working on a second about one of the subjects I've studied, and its practical although misunderstood application in our world(probably chemistry). The first book would probably be a science fiction novel that will become eerily close to reality in 2120. I'll also be working on projects to globalize technologies we already take advantage of while preserving the wonder of the world our ancestors carved.

No. I'm not endorsing an encased escalator to the top of Mt. Everest; you want to see it yourself, go climb it.

When the Food Crisis hits Tokyo, I'll abstain from giant monster jokes and be the guy who identifies the root of the issue, although not necessarily the person who solves the problem. I'll probably be the person who genetically re-engineers the rice plants so that they produce different flavors and colors of rice. It won't widely be accepted until 2060, when a disease that causes color-blindness strikes Eastern Asia and the Western Americas.

I'll also hope to have a cool agent name by then. Any suggestions?

Creativity and humour definitely go hand in hand. Thanks for sharing your creative writing.

(Ever read Robert J. Sawyer? Good science and clever ideas in his futuristic fiction.)

I admire science fiction and those who write it. Science fiction has a strange way of becoming science fact, at times. I'll be sure to check him out. And thanks for the comment.

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

Stinging Nettle

In this blog post I will focus on a plant that is abundant in our nature, and which is immensely nutritious. It's of course the Stinging Nettle. Let's start with the chemical constituents of this plant:37 % Non-Nitrogen-Extracts19 - 29 % Ash9 - 21 % Fiber4 % Fat22 % ProteinOnce the leaves are drid, their protein content can reach an astounding 40 %, which is much higher than beef, which even under the best of circ**stances can never exceed 31 % protein. In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

Future

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.
