Unfortunately, I don’t have a better explanation.
So let’s say some intergalactic alien race, let’s call them Kanamits, came up with a special use for humans and took us all with them to their planet. What would happen to this third rock from the sun?
Well that’s depressing. If humans disappeared, the world would be a better place from nature’s perspective. It wouldn’t take that long: 500 years or so. And 500 years is nothing in the life of a 4.5 billion year old Earth. Hell, 500 years is nothing even if you’re deluded into believing the Earth is only 6,000 years old.
We need the Earth more than it needs us.
Let’s remember that.
Let’s say that 100 years from now, all cars will be self driving, since that’s the new technology grabbing everyone’s attention right now. What does that mean for traffic lights?
Now that looks cool, but we do have a problem.
The video makes the assumption that people won’t cross streets.
Back to the drawing board.
Who’d have thought it would be at a different temperature in different parts of the world? (Obviously, the folks at Compound Interest thought about it.)
We have doors like this where I work. And people are always doing the wrong thing. But the other flaw with our doors is that if you don’t do certain things in a specific sequence, it sets off an alarm, which annoys everybody in the immediate vicinity.
And it happens all the time.
Years ago during Christmas season, I was on the Spanish Steps in Rome with my wife and son and looked up in the sky to see a bizarre black cloud formation.
This is what it was, but at the time, it was enough to make me think of the supernatural or the commencement of a biblical horror. It didn’t help that we had just left the Vatican.
But it’s something I’d really like to see again. Not on video, but right there while it’s happening.
