Floating Cities - is this a "thing"


Recommended Posts

I have talked about this before - that is as far as it went. I was saying that the ancient Chinampa system, growing something like flowers, could easily be constructed using concrete covered EPS foam as the base. I felt this would be a tremendous tourist attraction, especially if the routes were travelled in safe, rustic style vessels or canoes poling and sing songs for the deluxe experience.

Now the United Nations is gathering all these floating city concepts and technologies. Certainly would be cleaner waste water compared to near the Lake communities.

Free fertilizer, I forgot about that benefit. Notice I said flowers to start. No produce until it is vigorously checked. No one is going to give you fresh flowers Angus. Hey, maybe a cannabis grow license!

There was a great novel I read years ago which featured a floating city. The book is called Snowcrash. I can't remember who the author was, but it was highly entertaining.

I wish I could read a book.

I fall asleep after two or three pages.  HAHAHA

Yes, I can tell from your 3-10 word posts that you don't have a long attention span 🙂 At least you don't go on ad nauseaum for half a page, like some do.

I spell and type so slow that most of time I either forget and loss interest with what I was going to post.  HAHAHA
