A Limerick A Day


Elon Musk, CEO of SpaceX and Tesla at the SXSW festival in Austin, Texas yesterday

A guy who designs fancy cars
Has said that we must settle Mars
What’s this colony for?
To survive a world war
Let’s face it: his head’s in the stars

    Amazing how we look at the USA for examples of genius
    Saw a programme about china and the linking of mainland Hong Kong Macau by road
    At a cost just over 2 times of the national maternity hospital they have built a bridge connecting Hong Kong to china mainland
    The other bridge connecting Macau to Hong Kong is due to be finished this year spanning some 47 kilometres
    This apparently will cost three times
    Imagine both projects completed in under ten years costing the same as 5 national maternity hospitals and constructed to cope with weather
    We cannot even build a underground or luaus line fit for purpose
    Watching this programme a segment was filmed in the air and the pure magnitude of industrial complexes road networks housing that all involved feats of planning made me think us Irish are really Mickey mouse
    I would say our whole countries industrial production would fit in a block about 2 klms square
    No wonder china is swiftly becoming the biggest economy in the world

      Nothing to do with the fact that China has more than 275 times as many people as us?

      Although it’s GNP is only 80 times bigger than ours – so we are more then three-and-a-half times as productive.
