A company in New Hampshire is already outfitting their trucks with powerful heaters that let two-man repair crews literally melt a road back together, leaving no seam between the old asphalt and the new. In addition to being both more effective and cheaper, the infrared patch also has a lower carbon footprint, and merely takes about 15 minutes to apply. That means you can harness the power of heat to repair molten stone in less period than it takes to watch a reality reveal contestant say yes to a dress.
No More Waiting In Line At The Grocery Store
Waiting in line at the grocery store is the worst. That’s valuable period you could be spending at home, ignoring your family. But like the Spartan at Thermopylae, cashiers are outnumbered a hundred to one. There’s always going to be a bottleneck when it comes time to check out. Unless you understand two things: how much people hate minor inconveniences, and how little they value their privacy. Amazon understands the hell out of those two things .
So they’ve opened a chain of meat-space grocery store called Amazon Go, where customers never have to wait in line. All you need to do is open an account and check in on their app while entering the store, then grab whatever you want and simply leave when you’re finished. Amazon tracks whatever you take and bills your accounts automatically.
