    Now Musk is trying to claim "first idea" on the idea of Metropolitan Subway travel. :)

    Thunderf00t has a bunch of great debunking video's, and "Hyperloop" is the "loopiest" idea to be debunked yet by Thunderf00t.

    "The Hyperloop" has a basket full of ill-conceived claims to debunk:

    The recent debunking of the "Vibranium Capsule" for Hyperloop was fun too; more Hyperloop Marketing BS. :)

    NEW 'Vibranium' hyperloop capsule - BUSTED


    Hyperloop groupies hit PEAK stupidity!

    It takes a special brand of dumb to say the hyperloop is amazing 'cos no ones died on it! Yeah... kinda but you could make the same argument about transport by rabid bear ride!


    The Hyperloop: BUSTED!

    All the problems of deep space travel, bought down to the surface of the planet, such that you can travel about the speed of a bullet within a couple of cm of a gun barrel.

    Sadly almost no one in the main stream media assessed this stuff critically from a scientific/ engineering point of view. They just took them at their word when they said they could construct the completely untested large scale hyperloop for 1/10th the cost of a regular high speed rail connection. They took them at their word when they said it would only cost 20 bux, and take on 25 minutes.

    In reality the engineering problems are probably insurmountable. It would be like proposing a floating roadway across the Mediterranean or something.


    Yeah, here's the "disastrous" potentiality of the "Vacuum Tube" Hyperloop:

    Entire Hyperloop could be destroyed in SECONDS!

    One little dent.... could destroy the entire hyperloop in seconds.
    Yet this stuff STILL gets wall to wall favorable media coverage :(


    Once of my favorite old-timey "SciFi" movies was about the Trans-Atlantic Tunnel, showing how simply ridiculous that most of the Hyperloops "first idea" claims are, and how much Hyperloop "innovation" is based on the complete ignorance of the media pumping out Musk's BS to the public.

    Watch starting @ 11:35 for the SciFi fun - notice the "Transatlantic Tunnel" celebrity character, a "campy" '30's version of Elon Musk. :)

    I got to try my very first robot, the Anki Vector. This little guy is actually pretty fun. Check out the Anki Vector here: https://go.anki.com/2N9huqs

    500 Years From Now - What Will Life On Earth Be Like?
    The Infographics Show
    Published on Nov 12, 2018
    What will life on earth be like in 500 years? Will humans still be alive or will be have gone extinct? 500 years ago, roughly only half of the earth had been thoroughly explored and colonized, and the Americas were home to indigenous civilizations, but were largely unknown to the rest of the world. People lived and died in the same homes, or at best, could aspire to end their lives no more than a few miles from where they were born. Yet today, globalism has connected the planet, and for most of the world, your future is in your own hands. The jet engine and the internet have brought us opportunities that can take us around the Earth, while modern medicine keeps pushing the limits of our mortality. But what might the future hold? Welcome to this episode of The Infographics Show- where we take a look at what life on earth might look like in 50, 100, and 500 years.
