You may not have heard of Sam Lurcher as he is a fictitious friend of mine. I hear him regularly on my TV arguing that all religions are man made fictions except one. He says they are obviously fiction because there are so many of them and all are different. Also that we know all our ancestors came out of Africa millions of years ago and no religion mentions anything about that. Recently Sam has changed a little because he says one religion is all heart with no written word and may be the most important religion in existence. It has to do with sticking pins in dolls and is called Voodooism. I don't go along with Sam about that because I believe in the good I can do and the good others have done for the good of everybody and my God is every bodies, like it or not called, NATURE.
However Sam has other work to do in life and he claims it has the potential for great good for all of mankind. It is the study of brains and therefore brain chemistry. As for me, I have forgotten most of that subject since high school and college but have learned things not in early chem. courses from reading such as about our genes. They are made of DNA and DNA is composed of amino acids with phosphates. As Sam is studying brains I had to straighten him out from my knowledge about running that he had not considered. For your information there are at least 6 important chemicals in our brains but Sam had not considered normal brains compared to couch potato brains. Since everyone on earth came out of Africa hard wired for running what else did we inherit that makes runners healthier than non-runners? With running and fast walking every time a foot hits the ground there is a slight thump to the brain with every step that may influence brain chemistry.
So what? Well, Sam wonders if couch potatoes could sit in some device that jolts the brain like running, jogging and fast walking does? I don't know whether or not to call the answer to Sam's question, the Sam Lurcher Oval Wheel and Tire Co. (SLOWAT). or something shorter. Giving that question daily attention for a month or so I came up with the solution. When you hear about it you may want to invest to make money without working for it as the demand for the product will be revolutionary as every hospital will need many. All rest homes, taxi companies, bus, including school bus companies and many older citizens.
The new company will make, for all models and breeds of cars and trucks oval wheels and tires that will jolt the occupants very much like running, jogging or fast walking without actually running, jogging or fast walking. Think of it. All you need to do is to put oval wheels and tires made exclusively by SLOWAT on the front end of a vehicle and the occupants can have the full benefit of aiding brain chemistry while riding in a vehicle so outfitted.
I was amazed by the first test ride in my car. It was perfect- that nice little jolt but you have to keep your speed down because a little too fast and it jolts the bejesus out of the occupants. Two of the occupants threw up and insisted on walking the 4 miles back to my garage. Think of the demand of so many people just to be healthier. Even human doctors will want the SLOWAT wheels and tires because doctors want to be as healthy as their patients and most are as lazy as their patients who call running, work. The possibilities seem endless. For those who use taxis they would hail only jerky cabs for the exercise while watching TV in the cab. Even ambulances would be equipped. One side effect was that my gas guzzling V8 used only 1 gallon of gas in 42.5 miles while driving at the brain jolting speed. Seat belts are necessary because if you bounce and come down on a soft seat you lose some of the jolting necessary. Put a board on the seat. If you are as fired up as I am send in a contribution- to a charity such as, Mothers Against Drunk Driving. Love, George
