how cool would it be if the new telsa truck was technically the same platform as needed for a mars rover, and they send them to mars. you could own the same vehicle platform that is being used on mars.

Everytime I am working on a project and something tickles my mind for exploring I think this:

wtf am i thinking, what kind of people create gameshows fundamentally? marketing and advertising executives?

Show thread

There are game shows for memory, there should be game shows for reasoning where
the audience votes on who gets the prize and money.

What about online live streaming gameshows with real prizes and money.

How much advertising money could you reap from an online internet audience? is the television audience smaller or larger than the online audience?

I haven't had anything to say here for a while. whatevs.

Genuinely asking someone about their day and letting them talk, with minor prompts to keep them going allows them to reflect on their day as if you were present, and perhaps change the way they interact with themselves as we give them a chance to see their world through our eyes.

imagine constructing comedy such that its simple to re-tell to friends at the pub.

Those movies you know so well you can watch them as a radio plays.

it feels like figuring out the meaning of life honestly. and I aint even 42.

It's like the sky opened up and gave me a gift. I now know who I am and what I want. and i'm the same as everyone else except I've never heard it in these terms.

"I want a partner who I can work together with to fulfill our wildest dreams, whatever they may be"

it's such a simple statement, and something I have felt forever just never had the phrase to explain it. And perhaps i dream a little big, but whatever.

My life appears to keep getting worse, not better. It's an illusion in my head, but that doesn't make it any less difficult to deal with. I'm really struggling and i have no avenues of support that work. I honestly don't know how to escape from this funk that has settled on my existence, and i'm hoping something happens soon because something is going to happen, it must, people can do insane things to escape their pain.

God forbid any dictator figures out how to be the worlds biggest celebrity.. doh..

can you imagine the time when we are really and truly a multi-planetary species, and a natural catastrophe happens on another planet, like a meteor impact, how helpless you would feel to watch such an impact on a real civilisation.

I was listening to good music when these thoughts occurred to me.

Its like the skies a parted and the doors to the future were opened right in front of my very ears.

Such a simple thought and the reasons I'm sad most of the time mellts away.

That person I was and those people that were around when those bad things happened don't exist anymore, I'm significantly different to who I was, and so must they be.. so its a sort of birth of an idea that you aren't who you think you were, so this new person you are, was born when you weren't looking, who are they?

I think a fundamental problem with humans happens when they lose faith that what they do has meaning, and the way they do it expresses that meaning even down to the mundane actions you take each day. Even if you don't put any effort into it. Even if you don't notice. You rarely get credit for that value even though it exists in every facet of your life.

So... Thank you.
You matter and what you do matters and has value, thank you for waking up every day and working on your passions.
