The Future is Force Field 

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, 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.

About us:

This weblog is an ongoing, if periodic, effort by several friends to stay in touch, in reading material, and in ideas.

Lucky Luciano is a former Italian Stallion real estate hustler and Benedict Arnold CEO turned shady lawyer-to-be. He lives in Denver.

Ben is a Paramedic and would-be philantropist who lives in Denver. He knows everything about nothing.

Fuzzy Dunlop lives in Manhattan. He is more than capable of standing up to the stresses of a high crime urban environment.

Jess is a teacher. But have YOU given her an apple? No, you haven't. You should be ashamed of yourself. This crazy feminist currently rests her copy of Awakening in Jersey City.

Matt is a pariah, iconoclast, and professor of gambling living in Oakland.

Miguel Sanchez is not Lionel Hutz.

Daddy Brooklyn lives in Brooklyn. He hates Republicans, though he wouldn't mind being ensconced in the landed elite of New York City.

Paul just smoked my eyelids and punched my cigarette.

Ziggy Stardust has no past.
