an Exploration of Travel Alternatives

I have a problem. I would love to go home this weekend. No, that's not the problem. The problem is that I need a mode of transportation that is easy, fast, and does not require funds or the use of a vehicle.


With brain-storm clouds billowing overhead, I have been exploring alternate modes of transportation:


1) Mental Travmosis, the process whereby distance, space, and time are conquered through a concentration of violently stalwart mental exertion


2) Email Attachmentality, a relatively simple procedure into which one's physicality is decoded into data which can be attached to an email much like a mere document. Upon the email's arrival at its destination, the data is downloaded and reconstructed to return one to bodily form.


In the midst of my explorations, I was, by Chris Miller, introduced to a truly superior alternative. Study carefully this detailed chart, containing an astonishing explication of the Highly Complex Transportation System:


I think you, dear readers, will agree that change is coming. Can we remedy the irksome confinements of our deceptively unavoidable reliance upon vehicles? Yes, we can!

I really don't think that Principles of Science is a good class for Chris...

That's what I was thinking, Josh! But I do think Mr. Brubaker would have a problem with his parabola...

I'll try, Barbara... when I DO come, that is. I was looking at pics of the Green Social on facebook and missing my youth group like mad yesterday. I need to have a good coffee-shop chill with you again, too. :)

Josh and Bekah, I agree with Carla. Hey, if it looks good on the diagram, it possesses undeniable elements of plausibility. ;) You guys make me jealous with all your talk about Principles of Science. So, Josh... which class is to blame for the inspiration of the grand finale` of "The Last Battle"?

Becca,
That one comes out of a mix of music and Ethics. It came out of a deep longing for resolution to the cosmic question of evil.....Okay. More likely the piece flowed from a thoroughly agitated mental state in response to the combined stress of all the classes.
