"Three Square Meals"

Wonderful piece by James Lileks. I laughed out loud.

I once remarked that I wasn’t particularly worried about nuclear waste, because in a few decades we could probably bring it up to orbit in a space elevator and shoot it into the sun with a rail gun. A reasonable reply would be a discussion of the feasibility of space elevators, but my interlocutor looked at me as though I had suggested making the waste disappear by chanting Bible verses while shaking a dried gourd full of rattling pebbles.
