Don't rain-dance on my laser beam!

Mother nature would not approve


Scientists in Switzerland have come upon a new idea. Making it rain with laser beams. The old method, called 'cloud-seeding', used dry ice and silver-iodine to get clouds to beef up and fall down in areas that may have needed a good drenching.

 The technology, although very interesting, is very hazardous. First of all, they're pointing lasers into the sky. Never a good idea. Just ask a few pilots and see if they like the thought of being blinded by some pocket-protector wearing scientist working on a 'theory'. Secondly, you just don't mess with the weather.

 I'm never for messing with nature. The more we mess with her, the more she's going to mess with us. Balance is the best thing she does. Why do I refer to nature as a female? Well, her wrath is very woman-like. I've once been 20 feet away from a lightning strike and it felt just like when I've been griped out by a fed-up woman. I survived both instances, but have learned to avoid both in my wiser years.

 So, if you see someone trying to dance for rain, laugh and dance with them. But if you see someone pointing a technological marvel into the sky, slap the device out of their hands and tell them that someone has to pay for their idea of 'helping'.

  1. I agree that messing with the weather is dangerous, but it wouldn't be too hard to avoid hitting planes.

  8. Does it rain when they practice the rain dance?

    Also, I'm all for messing with the weather. We should bring the entirety of nature under our dominion.

  22. Considering the amount of shit we have already gotten us into with mother Nature I think we're pretty fucked regardless. Still no excuse to be playing with lasers though. And I will join in the next time I see a rain dance for sure.

  37. Yeah, weather tampering is something thats always bugged me. I never really understood why we want to mess with it, because we all know its a bad idea.

    ReplyDelete
  38. It would be awesome if it actually worked though.

    Though this opens up tons of opportunities for abuse.

  49. Your post about making it rain with laser beams reminds me of this thingy I read: http://thecomingcrisis.blogspot.com/2011/05/ahmadinejad-says-west-to-blame-for.html
    Ahmedinijad thinks wester countries have developed technologies that prevent it raining in certain areas! Kinda the opposite of what the swiss are proposing!

  50. 'The more we mess with her, the more she's going to mess with us.' I couldn't agree more. But then again, we humans thinks we're not a part of nature while our tendencies to mess with everything - including ourselves - is a very natural thing for us to do. :)
