Is there any example of large scale transit that’s not congested? Roads The most common source of humanity’s daily rage Subways Always a 50/50 chance you’re next someone’s urine Airplanes The phrase “we’re packed in here like sausages” comes to mind “I know one! Amtrak! It’s always a nice ride.” Amtrak is not profitable! It’s […]

Can going to space really save us from destroying the planet?

CO2 is the proverbial bad boy of Earth. We demonize or deify it. At this point, if you’re lucid, you have to concede to both. You demonize it for its role in heating the planet. You deify it because without it we’d still be in the dark ages. It’s like Taylor Swift- “Ugh, she’s so […]

I’m sitting on the beach with my girlfriend looking at the water. I say to her “I have this idea. You know that ocean plastic issue, particularly in the pacific? What if a drone could go through the water cleaning it up?” As seems to always be the case, whenever I have an idea for […]

How much more room could we have on airplanes if we weren’t overweight?

November 14, 2016

I recently read an article about how the amount of unruly incidents on planes has gone up 17% in the last year.
