I bet waves from a good-size storm would capsize or damage those things easily. Needs some redesign, IMHO.
Nice idea, though!
Every problem looks like a nail.
(the Russians aren't the only ones: too many average 'Americans' will readily nod to a statement such as "We ought to just nuke the entire Middle East", etc.)
BUT... there is a point to this thinking. Sometimes a hammer does fix the problem... And it can be the smartest solution when time is of the essence.
Those who want to pretend it is a nuanced issue seem to be the Intel fanboys, (and maybe even Intel employees...)

Please MrNaz, refrain from such liberal usage of the term "us".
My opinion of Bradbury has dropped a notch or two.
I will grant him this: There is a lot of nonsense on the internet. But there has always been a shitload of nonsense on the shelves of your average library. No library, no matter how up to date, represents the end-all, be-all pinnacle of human knowledge and wisdom. A good proportion of it is valuable, timelessly relevant observation of the human condition, and good hard historical fact. But an equal or greater amount of it is mythical nonsense and hackjob bullshit fit for reading at the beach and little else.
In the end, the most important thing people people have to realize is that they need to learn how to THINK CRITICALLY and not accept things as fact simply because they were told to believe that it was fact or that it fits their previous assumptions. They need to be ready to admit that their previous assumptions were wrong and that they can change their minds when new and better information comes along and not feel threatened in some way.
And this applies equally to a book in the library, a news report on CNN or FoxNews, the pronouncements of a government (or the protesters against that government) or the statements on a webpage. Don't believe anything right away but think about it, chew on it, digest it, analyse it, compare it, test it, and then do it all again. No matter where it came from or where you found it.
