Wow! I just had my “intrusion signatures updated” and I didn’t feel a thing! A little window just popped up in the middle of my screen and told me that. What in the world is an “intrusion signature?”
You know sometimes, no, often, I am a tad bit suspicious about what this thing is doing in the background. I may be losing my dad-gum house or something and didn’t even know it.
Pop! We know you stole that bag of M& M’s from the liquor store in ‘57 ………. Fess up now!
A friend of mine recently called me up and said that he was having a get together at his house some 67 miles away. Cup Cake and I are thinking about going, we are looking around for a good wrecker and towing service. We figure it would be cheaper to have the truck towed to the event, than try and drive it down there.
We are all going to have to change our way of life, learn how to live on less, and it isn’t going to be pretty in the end I am afraid. Unless you win the lottery and have pockets full of cash, you are going to have to do without. We all cannot be like the late Dennis Weaver who built a house that was totally energy efficient.
A drop-dead beautiful house built on the Western Slope of the Rockies, an underground marvel built out of discarded beer cans, glass bottles, old car tires and actually sold power back to the grid at the end of the month. Unfortunately, most of us do not have the resources to do this.
Our collective lives are on the threshold of great change, get ready. Because of the scarcity of these items we used to consider unlimited, we are going to be forced to do things differently in the future, much differently.
Just think how much weight you would lose, if you had to pedal a bike for a hour, to generate enough power to watch 45 minutes of Oprah or Dr. Phil? I for one, would certainly be more inclined to read more (during the daylight hours) to avoid the bike routine. It most certainly would influence what I watched and how much of it I wanted to see.
I can just see some guy in his living room, mouth full of Cheeto’s, beer can in one hand, pedaling like crazy, rivulets of sweat running down his puffy red cheeks and screaming at the television loudly …… “Screw the replays! …. Get on with the game!”
Now here is the rub.
How does a small country, Iceland, run ALL of its cars, trucks, and buses on Hydrogen Fuel. But in this country we are told that this technology is at least 20 years away? Could it be, because Hydrogen, one of the most plentiful resources on the planet, is made from water. It is true, check it out. Run that one up the flagpole and see if you can find some oilman or government anybody willing to salute it. Last I heard, there wasn’t a lot of PROFIT in water. I wonder, has anyone told Al Gore about this?
The rest of you, cheer up! Its so hard for me to see the bright side of the world any more, with so many bad spots in it, if it was an Apple we would more than likely throw it away. Perhaps now is the time to sell it all off, lock stock & barrel, move to Honduras and build that tree house in the jungle and pull the plug on all this.
