Thursday, September 1, 2011
Linnea McWhirter | Student | MIIS
A: I prefer catapults to artillery because you can launch anything. Like peasants or diseased cows.
Not a Peep: Twitter. Because celebrities are the worst people in the world and I don’t need to hear their self-aggrandizing crap.
Mike Owen | Retired | Marina
A: My grandkids really love the hand-cranked roll-down windows in older cars. It really gives them the feeling of being in control.
Unlisted Understanding: Automated telephone marketing calls.
Tamara Harris | Retired | Monterey
A: People have given up on the telephone. I don’t check my email that much, and most people don’t check their voice mail.
Green Muck: Nuclear energy. It’s dangerous and it’s made it possible for us to consume more than we need.
