The Envirosight Supervision 250 Crawls Through Sewer Pipes So No Human Has To
From Wired Magazine Article

What it’s used for:
Revealing damage deep inside city pipes

You go, you flush: out of sight, out of mind. Not for city maintenance crews. With 850 billion gallons of sewer and storm water leaking into watersheds around the country every year, the Environmental Protection Agency is cracking down on cracked pipes. And the SuperVision 250 is riding that great, stinky wave of demand.

Are you afraid you could lose your job to technological advances or have you lost a job because of a technological advance?

When Authority figures are liars – the most respected man in America

In High School, if there was a teacher that no one had respect for then everyone would love the kid at the back of the class who threw spit-balls at that teacher when the teacher was not looking.

It is interesting that the most respected man in America seems to be a comedian – Jon Stewart.

As Jon Stewart has said himself, he is like that kid who throws spit-balls at some politicians.

Is he popular because the American people have no respect for some of┬áthe current gang of politicians who are running our country – and especially those politicians that Jon is throwing spit-balls at?

That must be a lie, right?
