Do you ever have a time when there is nothing rolling through your mind
When you try to have a thought and the brain is basically shut down
where nothing flows, no matter how hard you try to force it, there is
nothing going on with the "little grey cells"
You begin to think of topics like The economy, evolution, compatibility,
equality, anxiety, obesity, ecommerce, dogs, cats, music,
in an attempt to stir the wheels to turn, then you think of another word,
and the ball begins to roll
Why is it NOW that they have begun to increase fuel economy,
why has it taken so long
or why have they done it now and not before
why was it never an issue
was it more important to come up with new colors or new models or new gadgets to add
why has the automotive industry finally at this time been able to achieve 35mi./gal.
If the automotive engine is an inefficient machine, how come they finally
have made it better, how did they make it better, what could they have
changed to increase efficiency
The last time there was any improvement it was the cylinder design
by Honda
When the Europeans discovered the new world the sent their ships
to cut down the trees for fuel and building materials because they
had used up all of their own
Can someone please figure out how to use ordinary rocks for fuel
oh, yes they already have done that
By putting rocks in with the combustible materials they are able
to extend the heating ability of the fire
Newspaper is a good insulator, In the 1940's newspaper was used
as insulation in home building,
Vagrants, or homeless individuals are often seen using newspaper
as blankets, Pretty soon, maybe there will be no more printed newspapers,
with the new generation that has grown with the computer as the  answer to
every question, Newspapers may be collectible items of value, a thing of the past.
The automobile, as produced by Ford, has change the way we live on the planet
Henry Ford invented the assembly line, therefore creating the dumbing down of
Before Henry's invention, Auto builders worked on building the whole machine
thus not having the repetitive injuries of the assembly line
Also, generations past were more educated, pick up any old math book dated
before the assembly line and see if you can solve a problem in the book
Independence is gone
we are now all connected for better or for worse, or should it be said, for better
AND for worse
Privacy is gone
everyone knows or can find out anything they want to know about you
Not that you have anything to hide
It is just that a little mystery is good for relationships
Knowledge is a wonderful thing
learning something new is grand
In the old days, only the priveledged few were given the honor of learning anything
then the invention of the printing press made knowledge available to the masses
and then the war of competition began, or, really expanded, instead of just fighting
for land and love
we know have seen the fight to be the first in space
the first to dive to the bottom of the ocean
all the little toys we accumulate and treasure
a music box
a baseball
ballet shoes
first it was rubber, then it was plastic
petroleum jelly
the ballpoint pen
the pencil
the little luxuries we take for granted
we do not want to simplify our lives
we want everything
right now
and are we willing to pay the price.
