My Actifit Report Card: September 20 2019

28일 전

I went to a climate strike protest today for some of my steps. It was wonderful to be around other people who share a concern about the things that are happening in the climate. So many young faces were there and some good speeches were made.

I road around in the car afterward and took this picture out of the car window:

It was really nice weather today. I wanted to get the mountains in the background and a view of the clouds but there were some electrical lines in the way. It would be nice if someday we would not need to have the electrical lines.

One of the bulbs in the back of car burned out so I replaced that today too. I had to buy two bulbs but a second one might come in handy. The car is so old it is possible it maybe replaced before the other bulb is used.

I've heard that one of Edison's original bulbs was still working. I'm not sure if that is true or not but it seems like we could make these low power auto bulbs outlast the cars. I don't know - maybe that asking for things to be too efficient.

The old bulb looks nice nestled in the bonsai tree. Maybe the tree will grow around it like some old bicycle left behind by a soldier who never returned. Or maybe I'll get tired of looking at it there and pitch it out. (That's more likely.)

It is kind of interesting to think about what kind of legacy we are leaving for our children. Lots of things seem disposable now. I've always thought it was inefficient to use something once and throw it away and buy something else frequently. It is tough to think about it too much. I've had friends who were so concerned about everything it made their lives very difficult.

Here's a picture of some of the very old concrete I saw recently. Probably who ever Andy was he is long gone by now but his legacy lives on.

I find it comforting to think about how much more efficient crypto is at keeping financial records and doing transactions. How big a potential it has for changing the way things are done. It used to take large teams of people with big adding machines to tabulate the books and do all the double entry accounting. There is a pretty interesting scene in Mary Poppins where the accountants are doing that.

I think we have come a long way and the next big push in increased efficiency could really change things for the better.


Additionally I played disc golf with my son today and lost by two points. We played 18 baskets with both the front nine and back nine for the game. The back nine is more difficult and there are some longer throws that my arm is not used to. It seems like I'm doing better at it though and scored at two over par for the eighteen baskets.


Thanks for reading! I always value your support and comments. The pictures were taken by me with my Galaxy S9+. Text and graphics copyright lightsplasher & litesplasher.

We sure need more to get intot he realization that climate change ios real and we need to take big steps now to protect our planet to many around thew world including rthe leaders have blinkers on and ar eignoring it or choosing to foolt themselves to think it is not real as it isnt in some big businesses best interest to make serious steps to protect our plant

Love that shot of the lightbulb :)

It is a very tough thing when facts are ignored and distorted to improve profits and justify unhealthy practices. Top level changes would be good for many things and are badly needed, and individual actions seem rather pointless. Short of a major financial collapse, I'm not sure what will be able to bring about these top level changes. Actually, I'm not even sure that would be helpful. Hopefully the political system will be able to fix things once the problem becomes even more apparent.

I guess we have to hope that changes will come but some days it doesnt seem very likely sadly

I think the oldest lamp in the world is in a warehouse somewhere, it even had a livestream some years ago, not sure what happened to it :/

I have some issues with climate protests, I do understand why people are doing them, but I think they aren't needed atm, Europe, China, Russia, Japan,etc... are changing their whole energy production to a greener production, they are making huge moves to make a better tomorrow as fast as they can, I think the only country from the developed world that is behind atm is the US since the US wants to rely on oil for everything... but the rest of the world is changing. I think that a better use of protester´s time would be for them to go to work, get money and invest into renewable energy sources, or wait until blockchain based partial investments into renewable green infrastructures are a thing and invest then.

The world is already changing, protesting isn't going to make it change faster, money, investment and better tech will... just my opinion ofc

Since I live in the US it is tough to see the lack of support for new energy production. A few top level changes could really help speed the switch over to better less polluting technologies. For example, things like less funding for fossil fuel and more incentives for solar. It does seem worthwhile to peacefully protest at this point for me.

I do like your point here but I think that protesting can help our leaders make better decisions, which in turn could speed the adoption of new tech and push research dollars into finding solutions. Plus it can be helpful to find support for yourself and other like minded people. Sometimes it feels very isolating to be concerned about the earth.

It is a fine line between having great concern and frustration because so many people don't share the same concern. As with everything in life it is a question of balance.

I just went to a bonsai show and enjoyed seeing the use of some stone, moss, and ground cover to make a nice scene.
