hand-cranked thoughts 20220215

A society run on batteries is kinda non-biodegradable, yes?

In due course, billions of bricked iPhones will need to be shot into space

At some point, everything will be hand-cranked
lol the hand-cranked car was the future

Is half-baked… a moment of potential or decay?
No one ever says they’re “half-baked” as the drugs kick in. Understandable, since how do you ever know where 1/2way-high is?

Then again, no one ever says, “haha, I’m still half-baked,” as the drugs wear off on the way down, even though it’s probably a pretty identifiable moment

And only in retrospect, can you know the exact moment of your mid-life (i.e., “half-dead”).

On plug-in, “rechargeable” batteries are not reanimated, so much as repaired. The power that sustains a rechargable battery is also that which saps its life force. Every charge brings diminished capacity until a battery has no memory of itself as a power source

Rechargeable is a subset of disposable

Also LOL any battery plugged into a power system entices that system to draw power from the battery. So, rechargeable batteries have to work extra hard to draw and retain power from a system whose very goal, profitability, and existence depend upon electronic devices not retaining any power

I haven’t worn a graphic T-shirt since last September. It’s been solids, with the occasional stripe.

Walking Luna today, I saw three people sneeze into their masks. Is there some benefit to that that I don’t know?

All kids are a product of sex. But not every kid is a product of love. This does not imply the swiped-right latter kids are unloved; only that many are conceived via, at best, temporary and, at worst, toxic unions.

Not saying you can’t fall in love on a hook-up app. They’re essentially sold as sanctioned risk-mitigation schemes, however, and the dirty secret is that there was never any real risk (other than “going all the way”) in the physical side of courting. The real risks in love never kick in until morning light hits the bedroom window.

Sex is valuable commodity, but the cheapest emotion. Go figure.

lol the true American political battle right now is between those who believe the country is a product of sex, and those who believe the United States is a product of love

Children as products of two people, in-love or otherwise, will be an outmoded concept when creating people is outsourced to efficient and innovative brands in the life-design space. Kids will get backstories, and their families will not be biological, but social relations
