Pete commented on Dementia playground

Many try to continue to interact via conversation even when it no longer is possible. I was amazed recently to watch dementia patients entertained through karaoke accompanied by words displayed on a screen, which I'd have never thought of. I think through experimentation, we could more often find things that seem to resonate beyond spoken language.

Pete commented on Time Travel: Turning Back the Clock

Regarding using less packaging, it's not necessarily the solution people imagine. When using the sleeves on paper coffee cups, I usually have to use two of them to keep from burning my fingers. Economizing past a certain point can backfire. Reducing the plastic in bottled water may be perpetuating a problem rather than addressing it directly. Glass, aluminum, paper. Rather than struggling to make plastics workable, we really ought to pursue solutions we know will work.

Pete commented on Time Travel: Turning Back the Clock

I see the primary use case being the family on a picnic. When it comes time to dispose of the trash, they could feel as though what they dispose of will find its way back into recycled packaging. When I lived in Germany more than 30 years ago I knew that glass bottles I disposed of would be either re-used or made into more glass bottles. Aluminum cans, the same.
