Re: Thanks, Science!
THere's nobody trying to make that happen.
It's just my take on what would be a good measurement system. We take a cosmological constant and break it down to distances that we are both familiar with (decimeter being almost exactly a foot) and manageable.
That's just my idea. It won't happen in this universe!

Have you tried that? Looking for answers? Or have you been content to be terrified of a thing you know nothing about?
Are you pushing your own short comings on us and safely hating them from a distance?
Is this the virtue of faith? To never change your mind: especially when you should?
Young Earth Creationists take offense at the idea that we have a common heritage with other animals. Why is being the descendant of a mud golem any better?
Confidence being an expectation built on past experience, evidence and extrapolation to the future. Faith being an expectation held in defiance of past experience and evidence.

Re: Thanks, Science!
Looks like somewhat of a rough ride. I like the future story it tells though. Level and uphill roadways would absorb sun power and deliver it to the vehicles that travel upon it. Downhilll roadways would use inverse inductive charging to increase the power output. Or piezoelectric charging. Or both.
I still think that future travel will include air motion somehow. Either by creating a vacuum, or moving the air with the vehicle. Too much energy is lost to air friction for us not to tackle that at some point. It will eventually become the lowest hanging fruit for increased efficiency.
