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.
