First self-closing Fridges, eventually self refilling fridges.

Why aren’t self-closing fridge doors the default? At work there’s been a couple of instances of the fridge door being left open overnight. It’s obviously an accident, but the fridge defrosts and there’s a big puddle of water left, one of the smaller bar fridges opens onto a newly carpeted area, not good. The food also…

Where’s my Drone delivered burrito?

Peak Oil causing GFC

Cigarette burned heart

“Look into their eyes Elation, tenderness, love. The feeling grows inside, but the outlet is broken unable to dissipate it fills the brain. Caustic it goes and with it your body, Can’t think, can’t eat, can’t work, can’t play, The blockage is still there, but the heart can’t wait. Out of phase, out of sync, bad timing,…
