New Orleans had better stay New Orleans!

Not New Venice, New Baghdad, nor New Mogadishu.

After they drain and put things back in order, they really ought to build stronger and taller levees out of steel & concrete. Earthen ones don't cut it after too long. They can also pave the levee's bottoms and anchor them or even WELD them so they stay in place. Moreover, they should widen them one way, and that's toward Lake Ponchartrain, not the city. This is so development stays.

Sooner or later, carbon nanotubes, much stronger than most all materials, will replace them and save the day each and every time. Not only will sentient working androids maintain and upgrade levees 24 hours a day, but nanos will keep them pristine on a molecular scale. I'm a futurist if you think this is just technobabble. However, those from the Mind-X forum of will relate well to what I'm seeing.

Don't forget: They ought to drain Lake Ponchartrain north via pipelines. Destination? How about Arkansas?

I love Zatarain's jambalaya. I sure hope they're available in grocery markets nationwide despite Hurricane Katrina's disaster. They're based out of New Orleans. Oh my!

I've read a long while ago about prophets saying that natural disasters will become bigger and bigger until it culminates to a huge, huge apocalypse of heavily nightmarish proportions.

I also read & heard that on December 21, 2012, the final "baktun" of the Mayan calendar will end, and plenty speculate that the happenings of end-of-world proportions will occur.

One of those is a sea level rise. Look here:

Nothing that exists today will pump out an ocean's worth of water. Even a 1-meter rise in sea level will completely drown New Orleans. In the weeks after this disaster, there will be a rebuilding of levees, a draining of the city, and a restoration. What you see on these maps will vastly overpower the efforts that the helpers are doing down there right now.

I hope the Technological Singularity arrives soon enough because it'll know how to reroute ocean water to where it's needed, after taking out the salt. The Sahara Desert will be no more; it'll be rehydrated and useful for agriculture for the first time in many thousands of years. It may also rip the molecular bonds of water so the Hydrogen becomes used for the new fuel-cell vehicles, the oxygen gets used for anything/anywhere that needs it, and the water used to make deserts a thing of the past.

The Singularity will also perfect Teleportation, so we can teleport gobs of water at a time to the Moon, then to Mars, and anywhere we decide to.

Therefore, we'll lower the sea levels as much as we want to. Perhaps 50 feet would be fine. We could also set the levels of different oceans, even if they connect. This is because many, many nano-bots will make upward-flowing water possible. They'll be like nanoscopic "conveyor belts" for the water. Hence, port cities that would otherwise lose their functionality will retain it, through the use of upward-flowing canals (without locks).

This may also give you more about the sea level rise (and fall, which I hope for.):

  1. We work like a horse.
    We eat like a pig.
    We like to play chicken.
    You can get someone's goat.
    We can be as slippery as a snake.
    We get dog tired.
    We can be as quiet as a mouse.
    We can be as quick as a cat.
    Some of us are as strong as an ox.
    People try to buffalo others.
    Some are as ugly as a toad.
    We can be as gentle as a lamb.
    Sometimes we are as happy as a lark.
    Some of us drink like a fish.
    We can be as proud as a peacock.
    A few of us are as hairy as a gorilla.
    You can get a frog in your throat.
    We can be a lone wolf.
    But I'm having a whale of a time!

    You have a riveting web log
    and undoubtedly must have
    atypical & quiescent potential
    for your intended readership.
    May I suggest that you do
    everything in your power to
    honor your encyclopedic/omniscient
    Designer/Architect as well
    as your revering audience.
    As soon as we acknowledge
    this Supreme Designer/Architect,
    Who has erected the beauteous
    fabric of the universe, our minds
    must necessarily be ravished with
    wonder at this infinate goodness,
    wisdom and power.

    Please remember to never
    restrict anyone's opportunities
    for ascertaining uninterrupted
    existence for their quintessence.

    There is a time for everything,
    a season for every activity
    under heaven. A time to be
    born and a time to die. A
    time to plant and a time to
    harvest. A time to kill and
    a time to heal. A time to
    tear down and a time to
    rebuild. A time to cry and
    a time to laugh. A time to
    grieve and a time to dance.
    A time to scatter stones
    and a time to gather stones.
    A time to embrace and a
    time to turn away. A time to
    search and a time to lose.
    A time to keep and a time to
    throw away. A time to tear
    and a time to mend. A time
    to be quiet and a time to
    speak up. A time to love
    and a time to hate. A time
    for war and a time for peace.

    Best wishes for continued ascendancy,
    Dr. Howdy

    P.S. One thing of which I am sure is
    that the common culture of my youth
    is gone for good. It was hollowed out
    by the rise of ethnic "identity politics,"
    then splintered beyond hope of repair
    by the emergence of the web-based
    technologies that so maximized and
    facilitated cultural choice as to make
    the broad-based offerings of the old
    mass media look bland and unchallenging
    by comparison."

  2. Your blog is creative Keep up the great work. This may be of interest to you; pentecostal assembly of the world in respect to info on pentecostal assembly of the world

  3. Military to bloggers: Watch your postings
    Courtesy to S&S World War II posters such as this one pushed the idea of being 'tight lipped' with sensitive military information.
    Hey, you have a great blog here! I'm definitely going to bookmark you!

    I have a free work at home site. It pretty much covers free work at home related stuff.

    Come and check it out if you get time :-)

    Powerful words! Those were a nice set of poems!

    PS: Why did I get a comment within minutes of posting my latest entry while I've never gotten a comment in any of my previous ones?

    ADDENDUM: Anonymous, are you referring to the Charismatic Pentecostals or Apostolic Pentecostals? I really had ought to type up an entry about Apostolics. I ran into them a few years ago, and let's just say that they were an interesting set of people!

  5. Assistance is streaming into hurricane-affected areas as volunteers...
    We've been watching the coverage of Katrina's aftermath in the affected Gulf states, and we're not ... All across the Web, blogs and Web sites are assisting with the relief and aid mobilization.
