Lets Build A Machine
« on: 28/01/2009 22:23:09 »


Dear Naked Science Forum

As your such a talented and diverse bunch i wanted to try a little experiment coming up with the plans for an imaginary machine.

Here's how its going to work:

for example

I will say the machine will be 17 miles wide

and then somebody will possibly reply by saying the machine will be made of gold

and then somebody else will reply and so on and so forth

its a bit like a game of word association

So anybody who wants to take part just reply to this massage

don't hold back on imaginative ideas, it can be scientific or just the first thing that comes into your head

Many thanks in advance hopefully there will be some interesting results

I will Start:

The Machine will be 17 miles wide

The microwave ovens will play the first couple of bars of Beethoven's ode to joy rather than going "ping!" when they have finished cooking stuff.

There will be a small sticker on it saying "Intel inside"- though this may not actually be true.

It will contain a substance known to the state of California to cause cancer.

Fred would like it to have a big gun that is on fire and a seat permanently reserved for Stalin(his hero.)
I would like all the food blenders on board to have no lids. I would also like the captain to be extremely handsome, so much so that women faint when they see him. The machine should also wear a skirt.

It will continually give us just the correct supply of endorphins to keep us happy and functionally very sharp.
