Sanctions

Sanctions are like telling a country to sit in a corner facing the wall and wear a dunce cap.

Black Box

That 777 that disappeared about a month ago and still has not been found.  Why not require multiple flight recorders.  One that would be attached to the outside of the plane and upon significant impact would detach from the plane and be buoyant and also have a small parachute attached.  You could use current car air bag technology to activate and propel it away from the plane. (The device could be added to the body of the plane behind the tail section.)

Solar Hydro Electric Power

States like Arizona, Nevada, and New Mexico  have vast desert lands.  We could put solar cells on them to create electricity, but the problem at night we would have no electricity.
What if  used many huge water tanks underground and many other ones at a substantial higher elevation.  During the day some of the power from the solar cells could be used to pump the water from the lower water tanks to the higher tanks.  Then at night the water in the high tanks could flow through pipes to power hydro electric generators and back to the underground tanks, thus producing power at night or at times during the day when clouds reduce the output of the solar cells.

No Brainers

     It all started with the battery powered calculator, kids using it no longer had to know the rules of math.  Then when we progressed to laptop personal computers with auto spell, so kids with it no longer had to remember the exact spelling of words.  With the advent of portable GPS devices, kids using this device no longer had to be able to read maps.
      Now a dead device battery means things not adding up, or words not spelled right, or the person not knowing where they are.

Droughts

Droughts

Over 1/3 of the USA is in a severe drought..  We have the technology to convert seawater into drinking water.  Why not use it build off shore derricks in the United States to pump the water to shoreline water distilleries and then have pipelines to the farming states so we could use this water for irrigation.

This is a re posting because drought conditions have worsened and California which is located by the ocean could benefit quickly by such a project.  Let's make this a Federal government project and spend taxpayers money on something worthwhile and put a lot of Americans to work.

Good Idea

Put your address sticker with your phone number inside your eyeglass cases.

Carnac Says

How much is your country's money worth?  How much is any country's money worth?  Long ago it was a fairly simple matter of how much gold that country had in it's reserves verses how much money they had printed.
Now that we are off the gold standard, I think of the old Johnny Carson Show and his Carnac character who held a sealed envelope to his forehead and would state his answer to the question inside.  The he would open the envelope and reveal the question.
Is there someone doing Carnac everyday with each country's currency inside a sealed envelope.  Holding it to his forehead and saying how much the money inside was worth.  Then opening it to reveal what country's currency it was.

February 29

We live in a time when quartz watches can split seconds into thousands of equal parts.  Yet every four years we must have a February 29th to equalize time.
Why do months have different number of days? Why don't we equalize the amount of hours, minutes, and seconds in each day, then do away with months completely.  January 01 would thus become Day 1 of 2013 and December 31 would become Day 365 of 2013.
Why do we have daylght savings time everywhere in th USA except Arizona where I now live?   Are they the only state that realizes you can't actually save time?

The Sky Is Falling

The obtuse became obese
While bank interest on savings disappear
Why save when you can spend
Live for today, forget about tommorrow

The sky's the limit.  But how high is the sky?
Asked chicken little, retorically
Don't worry just get another credit card

Mimes & Bloggers

Mimes and bloggers are much the same as neither has anything to say outloud.  Bloggers try to convey their ideas by writing, but no one ever reads them.  So they might as well be standing up with their hands out pressing against invisible panes of glass.
(That's what I'm doing right now, damn these widows are really clean.)

Campaign Jackets.

    Presidential candidates should be required to wear a NASCAR like jacket with patches that show all organizations and companies that have made major contributions to that candidate.

Made In the USA ?

Always wonder about stuff like coffee cups that have a sticker on them that says made in USA.  Was only the sticker made in the USA and the cup made some place else?

The Miranda Act

"You have the right to remain silent anything you say may and will be held against you."  Was wondering if a guilty criminal who was a mute and could not speak and confessed his guilt in sign language, could that later be used against him in court?

Blogging

  My only excuse for blogging is that I live alone and used to talk to myself.  I got so tired of listening to my own meaningless dribble that I turned to bogging instead.

Littering

 I  notice that my city is now littered with candidates"s signs.  Some have placed the same sign  in the ground  up to three times in a row, only a few feet from each other.  I don't know if my city has a fine for littering but think if they do they should fine the candidates who are repeat offenders.

Campaign Tax

  Why don't we tax campaign spending.  Candidates that spend less than $250,000. a year will not have to pay any tax, however if they spend over that amount  should be subject to a campaign tax.

Global Warming

Think about how much heat is produced by a single car with a gas engine.  Then think about how many more cars are put on the road each day worldwide.  Then add the amount of heat generated by each home air conditioner.  Then think about how many air conditioners are added worldwide each day.  We spend millions of dollars on studies of global warming.  Common sense tells us it is a fact.  The solution is the problem.
One solution is to have the home air conditioner cooled by water that is then sent to a large hot water tank to be used by the homeowner.  Thus reducing their hot water bill and reducing the hot air produced by the air conditioner.

Heros

There are two types of heroes those who risk their life trying to save another person, in many cases getting themself seriously injured in the process.
Then there is other type of hero who spends their life caring for their disabled loved ones.
