The internet often inspires some of my crazier thoughts. This post is inspired by Twitter. More specifically, this tweet: “Hey, IRS: Instead of a checkbox for WOULD YOU LIKE DONATE TO THE PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN FUND, can we get GIVE MONEY TO NASA FOR AWESOME SHIT” I saw retweeted by author Laurell K. Hamilton and originally posted by @ragebauer. So here’s a list of things I’d rather fund than a presidential campaign.
NASA doing more cool stuff. There’s a rover on Mars! That’s ridiculously awesome.
Zombie Apocalypse preparedness training.
New seasons of shows that shouldn’t have been cancelled. Most importantly Firefly.
Cheap healthy food. I like my fruits and vegetables thank you very much.
Theme music occurring in real life. Epic aspects of life would increase exponentially in fun.
Iron Man. Why aren’t superheroes real? Someone must be filthy rich and in possession of a mask.
Time travel. Apparently this isn’t possible according to current physics understanding, but I’m willing to overlook physics.
George R. R. Martin writing faster.
More self-checkouts at stores. I hate buying awkward things in front of a cashier. Yes, I do want chocolate, ice-cream, tampons, and this trashy romance novel. Thanks for the judgmental look.
A program to create a sexy new American accent.
Cosmopolitan for men.
Conversion to the metric system.
Bringing back the dinosaurs. I want a pet velociraptor.
Miniature versions of bigger things. Because the Earth possesses limited space and resources. Also, petite lap giraffes. I want one.
An equation for the perfect chip to dip ratio.
A campaign to make the world a better place by refusing to start anything before 10 a.m.
A 24 hour help hot-line for older generations trying to use technology. Someone deserves to get paid for helping these people instead of it creating family strife when children have to explain the use of Facebook.
A teleportation device. As an out of state student I’d really appreciate this technology. Good-bye long car drives.
Creation of a universal language. Ideally one that makes more sense than English or Chinese.
Public napping spaces. Basically I support a well rested country.
There you have it. That’s how I’d like my money spent. Feel free to encourage me to run for political office. Personally I’d like to be a Texas Ranger or a Slayer. What causes would you support financially?
