A crash course in changing the world.

so many things we had backwards (dinner2020)

dinner time, march 10, 2020...

time to wash hands! you gotta wash your hands, we've been out in the green house, cleaning the filters, checking the water traps designed to water the food and then move, root like, into the soil where the excess water seeps, slow and deep, to replenish the depleted aquifers. and of course, picking the food. fat, tomatoes, broccoli, tubers, all of they racked up and along the walls, all the way to the arched ceiling, their roots sipping lazily at the hydroponic broth, propped against each other like sleepy children...

the kids don't like dead animals for dinner. i mean, they get it, they don't mind the fact that there are animals on the plate, it's that farming animals is super wasteful. you gotta breed those cows, then you have to feed them, a lot, and then you have to wait for those cows to grow up! i mean, that takes years! and the wh*** time you are feeding them, watering them. it's insane! it's like some sort of dying heritage economy that should kept to a small little area of the country where people can go and watch the silly things people did in the past...

now single celled protein, vat cultured, nutritionally sound. thats some instant protein source for my future savvy, on top of it kids. it's fast, light on the resources, and tweaked right down to their little chromosomes to be the best source you can get.

everything is cooked and served in clay or wood. there's a really important reason for this. see, we've been doing it wrong. their are only two places you get stuff, it either grows or you dig it out of the ground. now trees take along time to grow back, but metal, oil, that takes waaaay longer, i mean, you don't get any of that back. clay is ok, clay is just mud. dirt. we have a lot of that. so thats no problem, but metal cutlery, plastic cups, that just doesn't make sense.

we fought so long to figure this stuff out. it took us forever to wrap our heads around the fact that even though this guys father had been a farmer and his father and his father before him, that tearing up the soil just didn't work anymore. i mean, we just didn't need all that corn and we definitely needed those new groves of bamboo the liberals pushed through congress. bamboo has a 30% advantage on co2 to oxygen conversion over your average tree. that means it's pretty nice outside, i mean, we're feeling good, the country is oxygenated like a vegas casino.

and as i sit down and fill my plate, well, thats just fine with me.

No more meat!?!

Oh well, nice tidbit about bamboo, didn't know that. It's strong and good for lots of things.

Instead of those metal trees for sucking up CO2 we could use bamboo forests :)

there were just so many things to say, and they were so interconnected. these are all concepts that i really care about, really want to do, so i was really feeling the posting...

I know what you mean about clay. I may be nuts but I think my daughter's best skill for future survival is not what she learned in books, but it's going to be her ability to work clay. Everyone else thinks I'm nuts.

I must say I especially loved the last paragraph about the world feeling like a Vegas casino :p

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***tances can never exceed 31 % protein. In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…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.
