Skywatch Friday - Crossed Signals
I'm always amazed at not just our skies overhead but how much wires, cables, signs, signals and other stuff we have overhead all over the place. As a pipeline engineer I can tell you that there are probably just as many wires and cables as well as pipelines carrying natural gas, fresh water, sewage, storm-water under our feet.
On one level it is all just visual pollution, on another it gives me a feeling of the net of connectiveness between all of us on this planet. If I had your phone number I could probably call you right now as you are reading this.
Would you pick up?
