What If We Could Control The Flow Of Liquids…

Well I’m assuming there’s a technical solution but I don’t get hydrodynamics at that level so, If we could move water around more easily, or using less energy, or something of the sort. Still, it’s the weekend and the sabbath is out late so I don’t have much time or attention for this.

  1. Better Toilets – Water moves fast doesn’t splash and all that (this is still on my mind from yesterday)
  2. Clog Proof Pipes – Because we all know how important this is. Not totally clog proof but better than what we have.
  3. Better Desalinization – Move water around, makes it more worthwhile, and useful. It becomes far cheaper to move water drawn from the sea, so trying to make that water useful becomes far more viable.
  4. Water Batteries – (Warning, opinions ahead. Skip past at your leisure.) Yay useful solar power, I still believe nuclear is better, despite producing some long-lasting waste, it takes far fewer lands and resources to keep running. Solar panels are expensive to make, and even if we never need to repair them, there are still large tracks of land devoted to the human resource of producing electricity from the sun. I think the efficiency in space provided by nuclear power, makes up for the waste it produces, as the lead needed to isolate the waste can be stored in far less space than it takes to build solar farms. We will learn to deal with the waste before we can figure out how to rebuild ecosystems that we built solar farms over.
  5. Grey Water Systems – aka poop water for plant life, will become far cheaper to make.
  6. More Rooftop Pools And Waterslides – Common it becomes cheaper
  7. Huge Rooftop Waterparks And Slides – Maybe even between buildings, moving water is cheap and easy, and when there is profit, innovation soon follows.
  8. Water Elevators – If pumping up water is still expensive, and I don’t see how it can’t be, it may become more efficient to make tall water pump with pipes that go out into surrounding buildings, most buildings pump there own water but if we can increase the capacity and durability of pipes than it probably becomes more efficient to have central buildings or towers where most of the water comes up, and to simply move the water vertically. Or maybe not, infrastructure is always tricky because of the high initial cost and the difficulty in experimentation.
  9. Showers Become Nicer – Water pressure isn’t high enough want multiple faucets, sure it’s cheap, easy, and fixable. We spend so much time here, anyway; we might as well optimize a bit.
  10. More Sinks – Hand washing is important; drinking enough is important; we don’t have sinks in every room because of aesthetic reasons, among others, but one thing that can make more sink rooms is the improvement of drains. Small drains on a kitchen floor if it’ not wooden and wall faucets. Maybe only for the eccentric, but style changes, and we seem to be becoming more focused on hygiene as time goes on. (I wonder why he asked, knowing full well one of the reasons.) So why not?
