Love plinky.com, wrote this when asked what would you do if you had unlimited resources>
Wow. What a question. Where to start? I really want to say I’d create the perfect home for me in the mountains somewhere with the most beautiful view. I would hike and fish and swim and relax. But…
Unlimited resources you say? I guess I would create a city. A city so perfect people would have to go on a waiting list to live there. A fantastic Eco city with no carbon footprint. Everyone would walk or cycle or travel on some magnetic train system. There would be trees and parks and tall buildings with interconnecting walkways. There would be team sports and community spirit and no litter or graffitti (except the artistic variety). It would be difficult to get to live there. No criminals, no one who was lazy or obnoxious or angry. Only people who wanted to contribute. Everyone would work for free. They would be artists or farmers or designers and they would ply their trade in the outside world and the money they earned would go towards buying food and things that couldn't be made in the city. Problems would be solved by elected representatives through debate and discussion. There would be no corruption. Numbers would be limited to, say, 100,000. And when it was full we would build City2 for the second 100,000. Technlogy would be used to the full, there would be no paper or non-recyclable materials or pollution or landfill or waste. It would be peaceful and hailed as the future of human existence. I would want to live there, would you?
Unlimited though? Maybe I’d just buy a massive yacht instead.
