Outrageous things I’d like to see happen that are, in truth, inevitable.

We have made enough robots that we don’t actually need to work anymore. You may disagree, but its kinda like how what use to take a quarter of the populous now only takes 2% for food production. Imagine that but for pretty much everything else. We can replace lawyers, doctors, and most menial workers with robots. Its economic and efficient.

Except if we don’t necessarily need to employ the entire population anymore, what do? Guaranteed Minimum Income 

in congruence with a more socialized, single payer insurance as well as free higher education, the min income would hit on basic housing and food costs. You want credit cards? well you’ll probly want a job to pay those off. a new car? ya.. that’ll need a job. But in the grand scheme of things, every dollar you work your but off to earn will be disposable income.

rent, utility bills and food taken care off? free time for college! (its covered!). A healthier and higher educated society has so many positive effects, as well as, think about it: if everyone has money for rent and food, there goes the majority of the homeless problem, why commit crime when you have sufficient to live (and they have found many times this is a stronger indicator than any other, desperation) It kinda solves a LOT of problems

Additionally, how nice would it be to have like a 30 hr work week? hey you don’t ‘need’ the cash. Your pay is sufficient for whatever life style you’d like (well i’m supposing if you have no bares to get educated and into precisely the job you want, you’re living the life you want) and honestly why would business want to pay you 40 if they don’t hafta?

and we kinda don’t have a choice, since within the century, perhaps within my lifetime, most work will be robots. sooo…

Tonight I learned the difference between coconut water and coconut milk by making my own! Coconut milk, as it turns out, is SUPER tasty to cook with! I found this recipe for coconut curried mussels and made it. It was a lot of work, but tasty enough where I’ll definitely make it again! :)

spacemutants asked:

So Hank, what's the deal with Pluto right now? Is it a planet or not?

edwardspoonhands:

Pluto is not a planet. The IAU (in my book) gets to decide what the definition of a planet is because there has to be a definition and they are by far the most qualified body to define it. 

Pluto does not meet that definition, and thus should not be considered a planet. I agree with their definition, but even if I didn’t I would submit to it because I am not an expert. 

Recently, three people sat in a room and argued about whether pluto was a planet. The audience then voted…and they voted that Pluto was a planet. That, of course, means nothing. If you want random groups of people to define scientific terms…it’s going to be hard to get any actual science done.
