Mining for Plastics (and fuel)...on Titan?
An article on space.com reports that polypropylene, a key ingredient for plastics, was found on Saturn's moon, Titan. Also, I found out that hydrocarbons, the basis for Earth's fossil fuels, exist in its atmosphere.
So I suppose when it's feasible to travel the solar system and have the right mining processes in order, we will be able to mine for plastic and fuel on Titan, and water on Europa.
Yeah, I'm getting too far ahead with these things. Man's gotta dream, can't he? :D
Update: (7/7) Went to Micro Center last night to see how much it would cost to replace the cooling fan, vacuum the laptop's innards, and replace the CMOS battery. It would be close to $90 USD, and that's not including the cost of the battery and fan.
My computer was working fine until this morning when the fan started making noises again, after about a day. Also the computer isn't keeping the correct time (CMOS battery is dying, I'm guessing).
At Some Point or Another in My Complicated Life...
...I aspired to be:
Somewhere along the line I lost sight of each of these. I have only myself to blame. I have only myself to find a way to change things.
Reinvention of Reinvention?
After a lot of difficulty in the working world, I've come to the realization that in order for me to be truly successful, I have to create stuff that's wholly my own and get it known in the real world. I have to be an entrepreneur of sorts.
Actually, I've always known this. However, there's this constant tug of war between my desire for better things and the daily grind. The daily grind has been winning as of late.
I've got to get back to doing my so-called 3D "art." I've got to get Shion and company back into my consciousness so I can start writing better. I've got to make the time and pull out some energy that I haven't discovered yet.
Easier said than done, perhaps. But my current situation is taking a toll. How much more could I lose at this point, anyway?
I've been inactive for some time due to work, lack of time and inspiration.
On hiatus. Will return soon.
