Re: Future Visions???
- Greetings All,
Okay, let me put on my Official Johnny Carson Incredible Psychic Swami
Turban that I picked up on e-Bay just for this occasion and see what I
come up with for our Futurama World.
After Hillary conducts a brilliant coup d'état ousting Obama and
proclaiming herself Empress of America in the fall of '09; and after
the fiasco of the Mega-Corp profit driven attempted reinvasion of the
Middle East (half way there someone realized that we no longer had
enough gas left to pull it off.); we are all stuck driving tiny
little, overpriced, poorly designed, and even poorer built recycled
Hybrid/Alternate Fuel beer cans; Jay Leno officially becomes the only
person within the American Empire allowed to own an SUV (and that is
only because Bill likes him and thinks that he is funny.) However,
when the American Airline Industry once again request yet another
multi-billion dollar bailout a nameless out of work NASA rocket
scientist (now working part-time as one of Empress Hillary's Imperial
Revenue Collectors and Economic Advisors) discovers who the real Gas
Guzzling, Sky Befouling, Noise Machines truly are --- The Jet
Billions of TONS (not ~gallons~ TONS!!!) of fuel are wasted every day
pushing half empty tin cans into the air. Why? Because we have all
gotten overly spoiled with our "I want it Yesterday!" mentality.
My proposed solution. ---- Slow down and take a giant step sideways.
It is time to get serious about further developing (And even
RE-developing) and utilizing something other than the BIGGER and more
wasteful jetliners just to ship a few passengers and e-Bay products
overnight from point A to point B.
The alternative airborne solution is the HYBRID AIRSHIP.
Aero craft -- WALRUS
The alternative land borne solutions are the HIGH SPEED RAIL and
MAGLEV TRANSPORT systems.
The alternative intercontinental business meeting solution is the
further development and utilization of the Internet.
When they pull those big noisy half empty jets out of the air they can
have my SUV. --- Those little wind-up hybrids just ain't going to cut
it during a Montana Winter! For some folks, those SUVs are NOT a
lifestyle choice. They are a necessary hard working TOOL.
Oh, and one other prediction. ---- The SEXPRESSO SHOP concept becomes
so popular that soon even McD's is featuring exotic dancers as its
counter help giving a whole new meaning to ---- "Did you want fries
What do YOU ALL think????
Keep It FUN!
--- Because the Multiverse is NOT a friendly place.
