I found this forward thinking design on a futurist website. It reminded me of a ostentatious Maltese falcon. If I had a bajingagillion dollars, I would buy a couple of african countries and start a farms that would feed the people who were hungry.
I would also build some chemical factories that would make HIV drugs for people who can't afford to buy them. But that is just me.... A rogue chemist with a dream...
I also found a really interesting article about using organic fibers in boat building (thanks tiller man)
(for some reason, I can't get the links to work)
Someday we could have boats made out of carrots and sails made from spider webs. This worries me, because my pet rabbit already chews on my computer chords; what if she chews a hole in my boat?
I like the mashed potato boat idea better..... sponsored by Mr Potato Head and Idaho!
EDIT: The future boat pic made it to the front page of the Sailing Anarchy website! Cool! I'm a huge SA fan; I love the articles and the crazy forum. Thanks ED!
