Memorable Cars from MY Past:
Wise foresighted people WITH THE IMAGINATION, amaze me. Years ago I heard of ‘car phones’ but never did see a real one. In our area I was among the first small-time contractors to have the ‘bag-phone’. I purchased 2 of them for my son and me. It was a fun thing, but the cost and phone bills were outrageous. I could not see a real future for the things.
One far-sighted man was Merv Griffin. I thought he was ONLY a talk show host that featured famous folks.’ Oh yes, he was innovative to ‘create’ Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune, but they were just ‘play-purties’ (mama’s words). BUT Merv also invested in and backed the ‘CELL PHONE’ idea. ME? I found it hard to picture the required number of cell towers could be built. Although it was a great idea, I could not imagine it working because it would mean building thousands and thousands of cell towers. TRYING TO IMAGINE THAT, I could not.
Can you IMAGINE cars with no wheels? Maybe they could move by fans or jets?
Can you IMAGINE the money saved in repairing/building roads?
Can you IMAGINE ‘teleporting?’
NOW look back 30-40 years, remember the cost of ‘long distance’ calls and ‘telegrams’. Could you even IMAGINE back then a thing called ‘e-mail? OR that you could have a blog (what is that?) that was read around the world practically instantly with no extra cost?
Okay, let your imagination run wild, what is something YOU can IMAGINE in the next 30 years? Just IMAGINE..........
Come on now, give it a try in your area of expertise!!!
Nothing can be too wild, as you think, remember laughing at Dick Tracy's watch.... the next time you use your cell phone.
PS: There are over 300,000 cell towers in the USA. At one time Sherry & I had a contract for a cell tower with Pegasus Towers, it would have paid us a percentage of the usage. The contract expired with the last economic down turn. We did get $10.00!!! LOL
