  Whole body transportation would be nice.

Maybe once you got to where you were going, and you forgot something, you could call and someone could put it in the transporter and they could send it to you.

I can see the whole system being like the US mail.

Most of the time it would work, on occasion someone would get lost.

(That happens the way we live today - someone leaves the house and never comes back.)

We would probably be getting junk transported stuff like we do junk mail.

You could have zappers, that you paid extra for, that would zap the junk stuff before it was pushed out to your doorway.

Sometimes, people would accidentally get zapped.

As a person is pulling themselves out of a trash bin, they could be fussing because they just bought a new anti-zapper and it was not working right.

A scientifically preserved Rush Limbaugh would be on the radio talking about how we all are able to work and pay for our own anti-zappers and the government should not be handing them out to everybody.

Ann Coulter's jaws would have been accidentally fused shut in a nuclear explosion. She would now be cleaning bathrooms, a cheap transistor radio, blaring in the background. I can see her now, mute form, hunched over a toilet bowl, she stops long enough to shake her toilet bowl brush at Rush.

Oh, that is indeed a lovely image. The world would be a far nicer place...

Oh, I did laugh at the notion of Ann Coulter's jaw accidentally being fused shut in a nuclear explosion. Very, very funny!

Ms MM Some fixes maybe to your lovely prose, "Maybe once you got to where you were going, and you forgot something, you could call and someone could put it in the transporter and they could send it to you" you were going, AND you forgot- I would change it to, you were going, you found that you forgot something. You could call, then someone could put it into the transporter, and then they could send it to you. "We would probably be getting junk transported stuff like we do junk mail." You dont need to repeat junk, suggested change, stuff like we do our mail. "As a person is pulling".. change to When a person is pulling. Break up the Rush Lim sentence into two after the "own anti zapppers. The goverment" But a very amusing story, poor Anne her future is so bleak!

Thanks Pam L. - I'll look at it tomorrow, I'm too tired to think that much right now. I always appreciate your insight and help.

And now it's just a little bit more normal that I used to think of what life on Earth would be like if gravity were parallel instead of perpendicular.

If only Ann Coulter and Rush Limbaugh would STFU!
