Architects are from Venus, Engineers are from Mars...

Architects are from Venus, Engineers are from Mars...

Why do Architects prefer curves and Engineers love straight lines?  In a couple of recent posts, some comments by Ken Boddie made me think about looking into this a wee bit further.  Many designers don't use curves because they are complicated,...

ANZAC DAY 2018, We will remember them!

ANZAC DAY 2018, We will remember them!

The acronym ANZAC was first devised in 1915 for the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps who went in support of the 'Old Country' to answer the Empire's call when World War 1 broke out. They were born into a baptism of fire against the Turks at...

Valid observation based on our refusal to learn from history to date, Ian. I suggest, however, that our days of “bags of smoke and straight up the middle” are disappearing. I foresee that the ‘Haves’ will rely more and more on AI (such as drones with facial recognition) to fight remotely in comfort, whereas the ‘Have Nots’ will continue to bring their fight into our cities and civillian gatherings.

Respects. Salute Ken Boddie As a former military officer I lament the folly of mankind to repeatedly engage in futile and tragic conflicts. But invariably we lay down our lives for the leaders, the politicians and for the power mongers to appease their self-interests - while on the other side there are those who are forced to defend against the onslaught of the aggressors. The cynical side of me believes that we will never transcend this dark side of human nature and will indefinitely be burying our innocent dead who were led to the slaughter out of patriotic duty.

How to Win Friends and Influence Engineers Part Three - Sky Hook Anyone?

Cities can be polluted, over crowded, crazy places to live - but now Architects and Designers are proposing that we live in towers suspended from Asteroids or even move to a magnetically levitated island complete with parks and trees.Cities used...

So whadya want me to do about it, smarty pants?

Occasionally my blogs turn to Mother Earth and the plight we've put her in. What with all our take, take, take over the millennia, and our exploitation (without time for renewal) of her natural assets, our modern day existence on this planet has now...

EXTINCTION STINKS

       For some reason I have thought more, in 2018, about Earth Day than any year I can remember. Maybe it's because of Buzz's being read like "So whadya want me to do about it, smarty pants?", "Our world needs us!" or one of my favorites that...

Thanks for the comment Jerry Fletcher. Hopefully Gaia need of plastic doesn't signal the end of our story.

Bill, your tale of traveling with the kids was wonderful. The Carlin piece once again made me aware that Gaia is one mean mother.
