Ray Bradbury on Madmen

Ray Bradbury’s Advice
“You find a few other nuts like yourself, and they’re your friends for a lifetime.”
“That’s what friends are, the people who share your crazy outlook and protect you from the world.”
” I am a dedicated madman, and that becomes its own training.”
“If you have to ask yourself whether or not you love a girl or you love a boy, forget it. You don’t.”
“You either feel a story and need to write it, or you better not write it.”

The Drinkable Book – Water is Life

A team of scientists and engineers from carnegie mellon and the university of virginia have developed “the Drinkable Book”. It is designed to educate people on how to purify water, and the paper inside the book is used to clean water. Ech book is printed on technologically advanced filter paper capable f killing a range of waterborne diseases like Cholera, Typhoid and E.Coli, and once the water is filtered it is 99.9 percent pure, which is similar to normal drinking water. This idea looks cool.
This filter paper will revolutionize water purification. It costs only pennies to produce, making it by far the cheapest option on the market. Each filter is capable of giving someone up to 30 days worth of clean water, and each book is capable of providing someone with clean water for up to 4 years. Once water is passed through the filter, bacteria count is reduced by over 99.99%, making the filtered water comparable to tap water in the United States of America.” The book was designed by Brian Gartside.
