Do all the homeless people leave Vegas in the Summer? Someone must be living without electricity.

(Doesn't sound like a great option though)

We are all just so spoiled it is ridiculous. For how many thousands of years did people live without electricity and running water and somehow they managed to live on.

I think you can live without running water. Access to water. Now that's rather difficult.

Do you know what people did back then? They moved to the water when they couldn't make it come to them. Again, we are way too spoiled. Move to where the resources are.

Yeah... and they had plagues and diseases and famines and the life expectancy was 35 years.

And this is why Nevada can't attract industry and why California is losing industry.

Thank you.

Lake Mead/Hoover Dam is the result of short sighted planning and engineering.

Short sighted?

Hoover Dam was built starting in 1931 and opened in 1936.

It's still in business 86 years later. I think that's pretty good for government work.

The short sighted planning came from all the people who left the northeast to find the sun and a lower cost of living. They (we) blew it.

I should have stayed in Syracuse.

Yes, short sighted. The entire project was built on short term data.

1936 is today on the geological timescale. I know we can't build by looking at the geological time scale, but we need to build projects by looking at much longer term data than we typically do.

We need to work out living on the ocean bottom. So, the Atlantis thing didnít work out. Lots of real estate down there.
