Wow. We had our flying car - graceful, compact, long range, in 1974, and we collectively said 'meh'?!
Actual science bang for your buck. Unless the motivation is "humans on Mars because we can!" Which is cool, just don't call it science.
1) Wireless is a must.
2) Split is a must.
We can rebuild him. Better, stronger, not quite as slow as most turtles.
after what like 26 years I think maybe he has the right to do something different.
I would trade about 15-20 years over the duration of his performing Mr. Burns for a couple more creations on the level of Derek Smalls.
Umm, price water the same for everyone. Problem solved.

Ego force: Newt (Gingrich).
Bribing torque: Newt-meter.
Energy: Election votes
Power: Election votes per second
Power density: Election votes per second per district
Density of states: Electorate distribution
Density of electorate: Red states
The article makes no argument to support its assertion that silicon valley will continue be a unique technology center. In fact, the article does make several compelling observations and cites trends that would portend just the opposite--a diaspora of tech development.
The specific SV boom from 1960-1990 was a concatenation of unique events. There is nothing unique to the geography that will keep tech in SV. California has the best combination of weather and recreation in the U.S. (IMO), but that's not going to keep the rest of the world from catching up in the areas that created SV: knowledge workforce, capital, and willingness to take a risk.
First mistake was submitting to the Playboy Lounge of Scientists.
