Overcoming Bloglessness

Let’s Consider The Potential Socio-Econmic Impact of Unrestricted Tunnelling


Daily Prompt  Tunnel Vision.

You’ve been given the ability to build a magical tunnel that will quickly and secretly connect your home with the location of your choice — anywhere on Earth. Where’s the other end of your tunnel?

Dear Daily Prompt,

Please be informed that, due to conscientious objections I decline to participate in today’s Magical Tunnel offer.

Sure, we have the ability, but we must ask ourselves, Is it wise, everybody tunneling willy-nilly through the earth? Is it prudent?

Do we fully understand the impact our tunneling would have on the planet? Would our intersecting paths weaken the earth’s layers, causing landslides and sinkholes, earthquakes and tidal waves? What if a tunnel intersects oil or natural gas? How will tunneling effect the earth’s molten core?

What rights do property owners have, should someone’s tunnel terminate on their private property? What rights do Tunnelers have and what regulations must they abide by?
What safety equipment will be mandatory for Tunnellers? Who will be liable when Tunnellers are injured?

What immigration laws will apply? Will arriving Tunnellers be tested for contagious diseases?

What about national security? What types of searches will Tunnellers be subjected to?

Too many questions remain unanswered. Too much is at stake. Please, reconsider and withdraw your reckless offer.

For many years I have suffered from debilitating bloglessness, only writing in my head, while everyone else posted and shared with ease. Previous attempts at recovery have failed, my secret journals edited to death, pages torn out, crumpled and trashed. I will not succumb to this embarassing condition. I will continue to struggle against the rampant backspacing and endless blank staring. I refuse to relapse into the void that is bloglessness. I can do it. I am doing it. I am Overcoming Bloglessness.

  1. The way things are going on around our world today, you just can’t be too careful!

  2. It’s OK, Susan, they’re MAGIC! (which I assume means all that will be taken care of, at least until some shonky shyster finds a way of cutting corners, horning in on potential profit and generally stuffing it up for the rest of us, the environment and World Peace.)

  3. A correct response. The thought did cross my mind that with everyone tunneling the world won’t remain a safe place. Thank God the magic tunnel is only make believe. Sheen.
