It’s bad enough we have to wear them.
A forum for trolls.
If the government is really serious about change the people want (nah, not gonna happen).
Internet voter registration
Already have this in many states, but needed to mention because until all states have it, it’ll be tough to actually get to Internet voting.
Longer life batteries for our mobile devices
An upgradeable “pro-sumer” Mac from Apple
Pipedream. Apple just doesn’t care what Mac users want any more.
The return of the Mac clone.
This one should happen but won’t. So, it’s a hackintosh if you want macOS on more capable hardware than Apple makes these days.
A reversal of global warming trends.
Call it what you want. It’s too damn hot, we all know it and since we humans unintentionally exacerbated the problem in the first place, it’d be nice if we could come up with something to reverse the trend.
The chance for football played in snowstorms during October and November
See item above. Football is a game played in harsh conditions, except these days harsh conditions are hot temperatures into October. It’s sad we don’t seem to have any “snow bowl” games to watch on the tube until mid to late December.
Time travel or the ability to control the rate at which time passes
Time seems to pass so fast these days. Maybe it’s because we’re all busier than ever. Another theory is that time passing quickly is proof the aliens have landed and are controlling our perceptions—including how fast we think time passes.
Just think of how pleasant election cycles would be by comparison with today. Candidate debates would be amazing—two of them just standing at the podium and not moving their lips. I can dream.
Wearable portable air conditioning
I know, I can’t get away from how hot it is. But, just think about if you’re in the office, the A/C is weak and you need some extra cooling down. Press a button on your watch or fitness tracker and you can regulate your body temperature so you’re cooler.
The option to spend more of your life in virtual reality than actual reality
Virtual as a lifestyle—for those who don’t like surprises and want to call the shots entirely. Talk about living a lie.
Dogs that can live longer than they do now
We have to say goodbye all too soon. If advances in nutrition, science and medicine can create natural increases in longevity like they have in humans, I’d be all for it.
An invention that allows us to take back stupid things we’ve said.
See time travel above.
We have vacuum cleaner equivalents. Weekly mows of the lawn is time we can never have back.
I thought it would be fun to watch the Cubs go wire to wire. But, strangely enough, it’s boring me. Maybe it’s because the Yankees are a mess and the Mets have faded.
Cornhole as an Olympic sport
There’s hope for cornhole I would think, especially when you consider we have curling.
More craft beer and pizza places creation
Will beer and pizza ever reach a saturation point? That’s a rhetorical question.
National Skip to Work Day
No, not National Skip Work Day. I thought images of people skipping to work would be a happy way to end this.
