Time to dream

I confess that lately I've been day-dreaming a lot. It's probably not a good thing since it makes me distracted and what I really want is to be in the present. My mind keeps drifting though - thinking about going back in time about 300 years ago in England or Europe or something. I wonder to myself, what could I say or do that would be cool or help them out a bit without radically altering the present time? There are tons of things but anyway, what I came up with are: #1 cheese burgers. I mean why wait until the 1950s? They'd probably enjoy a good burger. In fact, add poutine to that. They'd have all the separate ingredients back then, just need the nudge. #2 wheels on steamer trunks. C'mon, easy. We all waited a long, long time past the introduction of the wheel to have an easier time pulling a suitcase. #3 laundry tubs. Rig up something with pulleys, ropes and a wooden swish-type paddle. Washing clothes in a river must have sucked. #4 toothbrushes - save a lot of grief. The only concept I think I'd try to "implant" into the mass culture/psyche is that no matter what, they should never let business or industry anywhere near their rivers and lakes. That'd be a good seed to plant for the future now.

People have tried to stop capitalists from doing the wrong thing for a loooong time. Read Henry David Thoreau's Walden Pond, or the ancient philosophers. They were always questioning a persons intentions when it came to money and how it effected society. The majority of people are greedy, irresistible and selfish. Society will collapse, we'll rebuild and the process will start all over.

You want to go back to plant good seeds for the future?

Try to convince people back then that owning other humans is a very bad thing to do.

Also, condoms date back to the 1600s. See if you can track down the Trump family and convince them to use them all the time.
Ditto with the Hitlers.

you could probably pop into a few good concerts. It might be helpful to implant some medical knowledge. Maybe Mozart would live past age 35 and Beethoven wouldn't go deaf.

If we did not have dreamers and thinkers.
Would we have ever moved forward in life?
So many amazing ideas to help people and the planet, that get put on the back burners by governments. Because it is not financially profitable.
The Earth is a living organism.
Why do we hurt her so ?
It should be illegal to harm the earth.
There are No other livable planets hanging around that we can just pop up and move to.
Its our only lifeline, Regis.
Who wants to be a millionaire reference.
But so damn true.
