Ask A Genius 234 – Socialist Bouncing Pillow

Scott Douglas Jacobsen & Rick Rosner

July 20, 2017

[Beginning of recorded material]

Rick Rosner: So, you may have kind of a socialist floor, a bouncing pillow that keeps the poor from being too poor thanks to a guaranteed minimum wage.  But, those people won’t be living in luxury though certain aspects of that life may look semi-luxurious from our point of view.  When you have, when even the poorest people can afford TV’s that cover an entire wall.

Which is straight Ray Bradbury in the 1950’s but is slowly coming true.  And you know, decent food, clothing, semi-crappy shelter but not enough work and perhaps resentment against the have’s.  And the have’s may be more and more obvious, based on them looking old and weird.


Anyway, that’s enough of that.  I am going to start veering into pure twaddle.
