The Time Machine, A Classic DeLorean

This classic car is a DeLorean. A heavily modified version of it is featured in the movie “Back To The Future”. Doc Brown turned it into a time machine in the movie featuring the Flux Capacitor.

There are not too many of them around these days. To sit in that car was a thrill for this nerd.

Forty-Four Billion

As you may or may not know Elon Musk who is the richest person in the world is going to buy Twitter for a staggering $44 billion. Some would say it’s his money and he has a right to do with it as he pleases. But just think about what could be done to change the world other than buying a social network built on binary code and algorithms.

Homes, hospitals, and schools could be built in developing countries. People could have food on their tables by investing in farms and food programs for the poor. Research to heal people of diseases could be done and so much more. Lots of stuff could be done and I wish his money could go to all that.

My dad was a big fan of Elon because of Tesla and SpaceX. I don’t have a great deal of faith in him owning something so powerful that can impact the minds and hearts of already fragile people. Of course, we will have to wait and see what will happen to Twitter and those who use it daily for connection and community.
