M. Marvellous ideas

Many marvellous ideas are met with moans and mirth when they are first mooted. The first person who mentioned merging coal fired power stations with more mindful measures was called a moron. “He’s mad they muttered”, none too mildly.

It was as if he was trying to mastermind a massive takeover of the modern world. There was manouvering and manipulation and all kinds of muddles.

But I suspect that we need to mobilise mankind and get some momentum to make amends after many years of slovenly management if we are to make our way out of this mire and mess.

Here tomorrow: Nincompoop & napalm

Over at traverselife, I'm spending the month looking at different aspects of bullying.

All the best ideas come from the mind of the "mad". Great M post

that's a lot of M's squeezed in there!

looking at tommorrow's title, I know what a nincompoop is, not too sure about a napalm

sue said...

Julie, thanks, glad you're enjoying them!
San, humungous thankyou for your thoughtful review. I am genuinely impressed and delighted ;D
Jerri, I can see I need to learn much more about Tesla - was it him who did the farraday cage? My ignorance is showing - I'm off to do some research.
Nutschell. hehe, thankyou!
Dafeenah, interesting isn't it, mad one day, revered the next.
baygirl31, i hope I manage to shed a bit of light on the subject!

If anyone wants to visit and create a clicky signature, follow the links at traverselife and we can work through it together.

Have a wonderful weekend :)

IF we can only get enough of mankind mobilized. I'm afraid there are too many who are in power who have ulterior motivation to stifle progress and too many of the general populace who are too ignorant, ambivalent, or oppressed to do much about encouraging change.
