Top Ten Asinine Ways to Attempt to Create a Utopian SocietyIt's an unlikely thing that a lot of us wish for, but that doesn't mean we can't try. But to try like this would indeed be asinine, as the title says.
The Top Ten
No! We shall live in a society of hate and negativity, with positivity to balance it out. - gemcloben
Only problem are psychopaths. They do bad things without having to hate something. - Kiteretsunu
Wow great ideas ( sarcastic ) - Toucan
For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only son (and a bunch of clones) so that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. - PetSounds
Your reading too much of sci fi novels ( arthur c clark rocks ) - Toucan
As the fellow visitor said below, this is a flawed idea.
Except in cases in the Middle East where they do active desalinization (it's too expensive in the rest of the world), no drinking water comes directly from the oceans.
The chemicals you dumped in the oceans would be left behind, with the salt and other pollutants, when the water re-entered the atmosphere during evaporation and storms.
While all water is connected like you say, it's a matter of where the human drinking water fits into the chain. If you were to add the chemicals upstream, say by sprinkling it in the mountains or salting the clouds with it to produce storms, the chemicals would largely stay in the water supply to be gathered in reservoirs and storage facilities. Though I'd imaging they would be mostly filtered out during the cleaning process. That's why chemicals like fluoride are added to the water supply only one hop above hitting the public water supply and your tap.
You'd have to do the maths pretty accurately to avoid widespread serotonin syndrome. At least that's not fatal. Oh, wait... - PositronWildhawk
While this sounds good in theory, I think it would make it nearly impossible to sleep. - keycha1n
For the benefit of the cognitively impaired, let's try this again.
Your SSRIs WILL NOT EVAPORATE with the seawater. Some limited amount may become aerosolized diring violent storms, but the greatest part will REMAIN in the ocean.
FRESH water flows TO the ocean, not the other way around.
Got it straight?
And implement their policies on everyone in the world! - PositronWildhawk
No! This should never happen! - TwilightKitsune
Imagine: a world where nobody is to criticize or mention eachother's name in vain.
A world full of mindless lemmings following each other over a cliff.
Do that, and you can obtain free energy from everything, and thus do anything for anyone. Only one small problem: you can't break the Second Law of Thermodynamics. - PositronWildhawk
Refusal to use this word in any sentence shall be punishable by bollocks. - PositronWildhawk
Don't you hate it when a sentence doesn't end the way you think it bollocks? - gemcloben
British swearing: only wankers use it. - Puga
"It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood..."
Where's Hezario when you need 'em? - Turkeyasylum
Might the doxy concerning the genesis of petroleum be a myth, or worse yet, a hoax?
Are you aware of conclusions, mainly by Russian scientists, beginning in the late 19th century, that asphaltum/petroleum is the product of abiogenic processes near Earth's core?
Fossil fuels take millions of years to form, and they end up further and further underground, so might as well get a Tardis and a new crop! - PositronWildhawk
This might actually get some people to stop fighting.
Tried and failed.
You might have heard of the addled, utopian slackers at the forefront: hippies.
Communism is not a way to a utopian society. Communism is a utopian society and a utopian society is communism. They are one and the same.
Communism was originally supposed to be Utopia
Might as well grow a beard for the revolution! - CerealGuy
Just try to avoid a civil war and famine. - ethanmeinster
Who wrote this? Milo Stewart?
No thanks. I don't like the idea of menstruation. - PositronWildhawk
Would men loses their penises and vice versa? - Turkeyasylum
