Ed-vise: The Line

A rainy rainy rainy GOOD MORNING!!! to you all! Yup, PISSING RAIN this morning. So much rain that it didn’t seem like I needed my windshield wipers. But, once I started driving, well, it became a difficult to see. Oh well.

Think About it Thursday Ed-vise today. Cause it’s THURSDAY! Time to THINK!

The Line.

This is a MASSIVE, and I do mean MASSIVE project going on in Saudi Arabia. I say “going on” because it is literally GOING ON.

It is a literal city being built by the Saudi Government that is supposed to revolutionize civilization.

A mirrored structure that is 75 miles long and around 1600 feet tall. It is supposed to house 9 million souls. All working and living together in perfect harmony. A super train will run through the middle so you can travel from one end to the other in 20 minutes.

Of course, no cars can function in the facility. It is basically a massive apartment. Plenty of walking and biking though. Also supposed to have a whole bunch of green space in it. Zero carbon emissions (for whatever that is worth). However, the structure will literally bake EVERYTHING that surrounds it. See, when the sun beats down on a mirrored surface, the reflection back gets super damn hot.

And I do mean HOT! Don’t believe me? Stand in front of a mirror outside on a hot summer day. point the mirror at the sun and see how hot you get staring at it. The reflected heat off a low energy window can reach up to 200 degrees. And that’s a window…not a mirror. Lasers are made with mirrors.

Now, when it comes to working, the Saudi Prince is hoping the gig economy workers will inhabit the building. Basically a whole bunch of work from home type people. Fine.

But, I want you to Think About It if you are planning to move in.

See, Mohammed Bin Salman (MBS) really doesn’t like people or entities that speak out against him. Nobody really does. MBS happens to run the show over in Saudi Arabia. People that criticize him tend to come up missing. One US citizen happened to, shall we say, come apart…literally.

Despite what MBS might say about “freedoms” for non-Saudi and non-Muslim types, yeah…not gonna happen.

The old adage of “When in Rome, do as the Romans” comes to mind. Only when it comes to a government like MBS’s, it is “you WILL do as the Saudis.” And we don’t care what country you are from. Just look at the World Cup. Qatar said people will be allowed to drink. Then, NOPE…just like that.

In the end, if you decide to live in Saudi Arabia, in The Line, you will NOT have freedoms. You simply will not. You will watch what the government tells you to watch, you will pray when they tell you to, you will dress how they tell you (Saudi Arabia also has morality police that beat the hell out of violators). No exceptions for being from a different country. Kind of like what Texas wants (God bless Texas).

Don’t believe the hype. You’ve been warned.

I’m just saying

That’s it for today. Take care of yourselves. Check in on each other and remember a cow that plays guitar is a…MOO-SICIAN! HAHAHHAHAHAHA…Cow Joke!
