Re: The DARPA 100 Year Starship
So comparing a nation that has never used trains for distribution to one that looses the trains it uses massively for distribution? Yep, that's a fair comparison. There aren't enough trucks in the U.S. to move the volume. People would start to starve in that week. Look what happened with New Orleans. Imagine if New York went without food for a week. Civilization might not end, but it would be one hell of a disaster. Ever hear the saying "Every society is 3 meals away from revolution"?
Baby, you and me were never meant to be, just maybe think of me once in a while...
