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

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.

Where I will be in ten years.

Ten years from now I will be in a political job assisting with people in the midlands of South Carolina particularly the rural working class and farmers. As the class of people that feed the nation I find that it is imperative that we assist with making sure they produce as much food as possible. I would like to support local scientists as well that are leading in research on how to produce food more efficiently. I will also be participating in missions to foreign countries to help people with…See More

India Water home

The secret was living on the water via boats common in many developing countries like Myanmar. This is a real Indian boat home made of wood and this provides a shelter for many peoples around the world.
