Give An Inventor a Shove Day

I log on to the computer and look at more sad news coming from conflicts across the world. And my simple mind comes to the conclusion that what this world needs is a brand-new invention. Something life-altering like railroads, electrification, moving pictures, airplanes, computers. Something that would alter the very infrastructure and commerce of society. All these deadly and futile wars are really about sources of income. What we need is a new industry. Ideas? Let’s hear them. Here is my idea. Personal flying transportation devices. Something akin to the jet packs we were promised as kids. Imagine how society-changing that would be. Imagine moving just above tree level along designated flight paths. Imagine all the positive sources of revenue this whole new industry could generate. Why not imagine it? Why not create it? Somebody smarter than me needs to get on the ball with this. Where are the inventors? You probably know one. Let’s make this, March 12, 2012, Give An Inventor a Shove Day.

Now before anyone even thinks it, reject those thoughts regarding the dangers of personal flight. Every mode of transportation can get you killed, including walking. If you move off your spot you might get killed. And if you sit on your spot you might get killed by a storm or a meteor.

Remember, my generation was promised jet packs and telephones that would show your face as you spoke. Well, with Skype, we got half that. I want my jet pack and I want it soon.

See what happens when I get a day off? Go out and see what you can discover or invent! Happy Spring Break!
