140127 Andy Ones Diary

An action resulting in the comment “Lying cow”

Diary entry for 27/01/4587

Robospaceship to Pod 03

Movie time again.

We watched a documentary from the 21st century tonight set in the Parliament House in Australia. The main one. They had Houses in each State as well as the biggest and best in their capital city. A man and woman enter this prestigious building. The Pride of the Nation. And they are drunk, blotto, out of it; and they can enter! Turns out they work there. Obviously two dismissals in the offing. But it gets worse. They go into the office where they work for one of the Parliamentarians and get undressed. They have sex. How can it get worse? It does! The woman goes to sleep. The man can’t wake her and goes. A security guard finds her and covers her up. She eventually wakes up. Is she sorry for her desecration of her workplace. No way. She decides to blame the man for her conduct. He must have raped her. He must be the one solely responsible for this outrage. I find it hard to believe that the leader of the country was gullible enough to give credence to her story. I did not watch all of it. It was just too much to stomach. We might be fourteen years old but we are nowhere near as naive as those 21st century humans.

What with reading, sleeping and talking the trip went quickly.

3 KEVIN AND JULIE AND CHICKEN FOOD

 

 

Julie and Kevin are talking about the crops grown on Maxwell 01 by the robots that are terraforming the planet.

KEVIN

The robots will have been growing wheat.

JULIE

Yes, chickens no doubt like wheat. But a bit boring if that is the only chicken food.

KEVIN

Well, on that list of plants what else will the chickens like?

JULIE

This website says they need a varied diet that includes grain, greens and protein.

KEVIN

Well, they have the grain.

JULIE

The greens will no doubt be on that list. What greens do they like that the robots have grown?

KEVIN

Broccoli is on the list. We like broccoli but chickens love all of it. And then there is cucumbers, chopped up I guess, but they could peck their way through it.

JULIE

It turns out feeding chickens just wheat is definitely a no no. Just as well the robots are busy in the garden.

KEVIN

Pumpkin is another one good for chickens and they have grown it. All of it. The seeds are a good source of protein.

JULIE

Here on Earth chickens can get protein from grubs and other such things they scratch up. I can’t imagine the robots producing grubs just for the chickens.

KEVIN

I can’t either, but they have grown nasturtiums. I thought they were just for the babies to nibble on when they get older, and to look at, but chickens like them. Not much protein there though.

JULIE

Seeds, they need seeds. Lots of protein in seeds. What else have they grown that is full of seeds?

KEVIN

Here you go. Sunflowers. Chock a block full of protein. And the babies will love looking at the flowers.

JULIE

I had better give up. The planners from a thousand years ago knew what the chickens would need and told the robots what to grow.

KEVIN

The planning for terraforming a planet definitely took many years. They had to think of everything.

JULIE

Yes, you can’t tell a robot four light years away ‘Sorry, I forgot…’. It needs to know everything when it leaves.

KEVIN

The Science Museum no doubt has a complete record of what the robots were told.

JULIE

We could go there next. Going to the Natural History Museum the other day was really good. We should have been before.

KEVIN

Yes, Birmingham has so many of the places moved from London that we just have to go down the road for any number of great places to visit.

JULIE

Well, the Science Museum is on our next visit list. I guess Westminster Abbey will be on the list soon.

KEVIN

One thing about having workers that work twenty four hours a day every day and there are thousands of them it does not take long to do anything.

JULIE

Humans do feel a bit left out sometimes. This human anyway.

KEVIN

The job used to be the human. We have lost our identity if we are still missing our job.

JULIE

People who have a job like it. If they didn’t like it they would join the rest of us just enjoying a life of leisure.

KEVIN

I really do enjoy my life of leisure. Working at something that was only necessary for making money would not be as enjoyable as doing what you want when you want.

JULIE

And getting paid for it. And if we want to visit the Moon or Space City again we just need to put our names on the list and hope most people prefer to have themselves in an environment more stable.

KEVIN

For sure. The forty sixth century is the best time for humans.

1 Davey will have his tour in 4577

 

 

Davey has plans for a family tour to England but cannot go this year because everywhere he wants to go is fully booked. With humans not needing to work most people are full time tourists.

DAVEY

You mean that everyone wants to visit England when we want to?

DAD

Yes, Davey, it is the best time of the year.

DAVEY

So we will not be going until next June.

DAD

Sorry, Davey, but everything is booked up. Hotels, airships, everything.

DAVEY

But, June next year we are on our way.

DAD

We are booked for everything on your tour Davey. Hotels, airships, submersibles, even the restaurants you had read about that you wanted to eat at.

DAVEY

Well, that is good. Some of that food sounded absolutely delicious.

DAD

They were a bit surprised to be getting booking this far in advance but we are eating where you wanted just not when you wanted.

DAVEY

I will be up to Stage 7 in my subjects by then. But I am told they are not much harder.

DAD

You will only be away a couple of weeks, Davey. And it will be more of an education than absorbing your Education Inputs.

DAVEY

England is where we started from thousands of years ago. It is why I want to have a look at it.

DAD

We are all looking forward to following your itinerary, Davey. We are disappointed it will be next year and not this one.

DAVEY

I think I will make an itinerary for New Zealand so we can go there in a couple of months.

DAD

Definitely when it gets a bit warmer. Just at present it is for people who like to play in the snow.

DAVEY

It is too bad that some of Christchurch is under water. It was a pretty city.

DAD

Just as well most of it is still above water. I guess it will be bad for future visitors if the water does not stop rising.

DAVEY

We could go in July and go skiing.

DAD

I don’t think you will get in anywhere Davey. It will all be booked out.

DAVEY

That is probably true. Australians need to go there now if they want to ski.

DAD

Yes, global warming has warmed up the bits of Australia that had snow.

DAVEY

So, it is for after July but when it is warmer. Some of Auckland is still above water.

DAD

Well, Rotorua is one place you want to see with its bubbling mud pools.

DAVEY

Yes, it and the volcanoes are above water. They will be on the list.

DAD

And Queenstown is a very pretty spot. But no glaciers any more along the west coast.

DAVEY

If we do not go too late there will still be snow on Mount Cook.

DAD

And of course Milford Sound is still a big attraction.

DAVEY

I will want a roboairship to see Fiordland. We could see it both from the air and from the water.

DAD

Well, you had better get this itinerary done. You will also want a roboairship to see the north of the South Island.

DAVEY

New Zealand is a pretty place. I will get to work so you can book what we need.

DAD

Don’t forget that Grand dad is no spring chicken.

DAVEY

I know. I know. How did you know I was thinking of including a trek or two?

DAD

Just make sure that when you do they are easy and not too long.

DAVEY

The roboairships can drop us and then pick us up when we have had enough.

DAD

Well, when granddad has had enough.

DAVEY

There are a huge number of wineries in the north of the South Island.

DAD

Good boy. Thinking of your elders enjoying a drop of wine when we drop in with the roboairship.

DAVEY

They are said to be world famous.

DAD

They are, Davey, they are. So include two or three at least in your itinerary.

DAVEY

Right. I will do it all now.

1 Dad and Davey discuss a tour

 

 

DAVEY

Dad, you need to take a look at this advertisement.

DAD

What is that, Davey. Not a party planner.

DAVEY

No, Dad. I do not need help to design a great Celebration of Life for you even if we are going to have dozens of them.

DAD

Well, just hope we do have dozens of them.

DAVEY

This one is a reminder that sea levels are still rising and we should visit places before they sink below the waves.

DAD

So, what is this advert Davey?

DAVEY

See, it is here.

 

Going, going, gone

Get to see the world before it sinks.

Sea levels keep rising.

More tourist attractions are going under water.

You have missed out on seeing Venice above water.

And the Netherlands has gone.

See our website for what is next.

Let us fly you there soon.

Or your visit will be in a submersible.

 

DAD

Well, Davey. That definitely suggests a visit. But to where?

DAVEY

London is under water but they are moving Westminster Abbey at present.

DAD

How come it isn’t sunk?

DAVEY

They put a wall around it but they have decided the water won’t stop and are moving it.

DAD

So, would you go all the way to England just to see the Abbey moved?

DAVEY

No, Dad. There is still a lot of England above water, even though a lot has sunk.

DAD

Do you plan a weekend trip or longer?

DAVEY

We could take the rocket to London, look at the Abbey being moved, then do a submersible tour of London, before seeing Stonehenge.

DAD

You need to make an itinerary for the trip, Davey. Then we see if we can get hotels. June is a popular month for visiting England.

DAVEY

Well, Sherwood Forest is still above water, and Nottingham. Cambridge has sunk but Oxford is above water.

DAD

I would like to see the Lakes District again. I went there years ago.

DAVEY

Bits of it have sunk but most is still above water.

DAD

Good. I hope you can see William Wordsworth’s homes. I would not like them to be sunk.

DAVEY

Well, Dad. I would like to see Chester but some of it is under water.

DAD

You will need to contact that tour mob and get more information, Davey. Or I suppose it will all be online if you look.

DAVEY

It will be easier to ask them. I will phone them when they are at work.

DAD

Yes. I guess the ten hour time difference means they are asleep.

DAVEY

I think we will need more than a weekend, Dad.

DAD

That looks to be at least a week already and you have not started. Just wait a minute. Joan! Joan!

MUM

What is it, Warren?

DAD

Davey wants us to go to England for a month.

MUM

A month! What does he want to do?

DAD

He is making an itinerary to show you. But should we take my dad?

MUM

He would love to go with us but he will want to know what it is for. Ask him but tell him he will get the details later.

DAD

What if you give him a call, Joan? He would like to be asked by you.

MUM

Davey, when are you planning for us to go?

DAVEY

I want to go as soon as possible, Mum. I will phone the tour company tomorrow.

MUM

No, you make an itinerary, Davey, and show it to us before you ring anyone. We and your Grandpa will need to agree with your ideas.

DAVEY

Good, Mum. I will get onto it right away.
