10 technologies that deserve to die
i can say almost all on that list is not crap. the only one i can 100% agree with is #9. cause they really, do not work.
1. Nuclear Weapons, yes id be nice if no one had them, but iit's too late for all that. If we got rid of them, some one else would build 'um. (then
we cant say, "nuke 'um)
2. Coal - we got enough coal in the US under our soil that we could like in a world without gasoline or oil, need i say more?
(well this too,) there is now something called, clean coal, i learned about the # in like 6th grade for petes sake!
and i got a aunt who lives near a coal power plant, (1-2 miles) and you wouldnt even know it by looking at his neighborhood or house, there is no
soot, so all that b.s. they say can go out the window.
3. THE INTERNAL-COMBUSTION ENGINE - ok ill admit it, i love the sound of a nice big pick-up truck, and zooming on my ski-doo, and jet-ski (2 cycle,
eat that  enviro-fuc_s! [end edit])
where would we be without it?
you cannot force companies to build # that is (a) too expensive to build, (if you had a choice would you buy a car thats $10000 and runs on cheap gas
or $40000 and runs on hydrogen (which is b.s.)) or (b) not existant yet
4. INCANDESCENT LIGHT BULBS - what the matter with these bulbs, it warming my hands right now,
j/k, if you as a consumer was presented with (a) a lightbulb for 30 cents or (B) a lightbulb for $1 which would you buy?
Honestly these bulbs will go away as long as people want bulbs that suck up less juice and are cheap to buy (those new twisty shaped bulbs rock! they
5. LAND MINES - don't we wish? but what are we going to use when the NWO comes in with their tanks?
6. MANNED SPACEFLIGHT - ok sure, then lets not bother going to Mars either. Jeesh!
7. Prisons - ARE YOU CRAZY! There are just some people who never change, you may have met someone like this in your life, and sadly they have to go
somewhere. Do you want a kiddy-rapist loose?
8. COSMETIC IMPLANTS - well, as long as Mrs. wants bigger breats to show off to Mr. they will always exist. Plus come on, a feminist musta wrote
9. Lie Detectors, well i agree, they are only 98% right when it can tell your "lieing", you can outwit those damn things as long as you believe what
you say, plus alot of those things are rigged.
10. DVD's - come on get real, maybe in 20 years yeah, but me, i still like VHS cause your brothers or anyone else cant scratch the VHS,
Heres my feed, eat up,
