If I Wanted To Be Famous, What For?

Fri May 25, 2001 11:59 pm

If you wanted to be famous or infamous what would it be?

A political leader?

A movie star?

An enviromental scientist?

An inventor?

A missionary?

A human rights advocate?

A musician?

A painter?

A revolutionary?

Others?



What would I want to be? I would like to be the inventor of a cheap and reliable 'renewable non-polluting energy source'. Something that both the western and undeveloped worlds could adapt and use without major cost.

Cheers,

mb

For something good and generous I did...

...but I'd rather not be famous while still living. It looks like too much work!

Guess I'd better get out there and try to do something- anything - good.
...three miles from BRONS, clear for the ILS one five approach...

Finding the cure for cancer.

Piggybacking Argon molecules on radioactive isotopes (Phosphorus-32) and injecting them into the patient. Since the cancer cells absorb the radioisotopes, the Argon is absorbed with it. Then a very low-power field of microwaves is 'scanned' over the patient which creates a violent reaction with the Argon. The reaction scrambles the cancer cells nucleus, killing it. Then the body's immune system takes over and eliminates the defenseless dead cancer cells just as it does all dead cells, causing the patient to have a high-grade fever. After 2 days, there are no signs of cancer in the patient. This is a single-treatment therapy; low-cost; totally systemic (meaning it will cure cancer at any site in the body); affects all types of neoplasms; recurrent cancer does not grow immune to the treatment; works at any stage of cancer; and there are no side-effects (except for the fever, which really isn't a side-effect, but part of the treatment). That's how I would want to be famous.

Reaching the summit of Lhotse Middle Peak, worlds high unclimbed summit

Climbing the second highest mountain on each continent, never been done...one person climbing all seven (Tyree, Kenya, Logan, K2, Shkhara or Monte Rosa, Ojos del Salado, Townsend)

I don't even want to be famous, screw that. I am myself and I don't give a crap what others think.

Seriously, I want to be a columnist but fame is only something that I intend to accomplish second to being a good writer.

'The' Musician, but this doesn't mean to sell yourself to the record companies. If it's to be famous I'd be famous to make people look back to good music, and everybody would be curious about that kind of magic on my guitar.
