What is the one source of energy that will never run out?
John Barnes has a good story about “brain power” as a source of energy. It’s called “Why the Stars Are Always So Bright from Cousin Sid’s Farm.” (Collected in _Apostrophes and Apocalypses_.) It’s a very short, very funny little story. I highly recommend it, along with any of Barnes’s other work.
It might be difficult to get a new bulb–I don’t think Radio Shack is open yet…
Why is a Brainpower light bulb needed in a time machine that is powered by a black hole? >.> “Just skim a little off the top and you’ve got enough roomba fuel to power millions of them for 45 days.” They should have all the power they’ll ever need….
@PlantPerson: I’ll have to put that on my reading list! I am a fan of short stories, so I’ll fast-track it right to the top of the list.
@Hey! You over there.: Good observation! Perhaps it will be explained in “Bright Ideas, Part 2″
I remember that citation about the brain power in a trip to Florida. (In which of course we went to Disney World… )
And how are they gonna find a bulb in this past/future open space? Are they stuck in the past-future forever?
Log-in friday to find out!
YES. I am so happy someone caught the reference! Awesome!
