Today slate has some-such-and-such about how a skyscraper can never really be safe. Instead of reading the article, I will do what all great visionaries do and talk about my own idea instead. Force field! If I were a venture capitalist, I would be pursuing the patent on force field. If you could create this kind of defense, you charge anything you want.
There has already been some experience of force field, as reported by an engineer at a 3M production plant (Here
). I believe that given enough money for research, force field could be realize in no more than 10 years. It seems more productive than SMD projects that go no where.The only way to stop terrorists is force field!
Or planes made out of balsa wood. Or replace air travel altogether with a cannon/parachute system. That system would make baggage restrictions much easier to enforce, and if the terrorists went to cannon school, you'd just have to pay the window washers overtime. Just a thought.
