       what do you want to put in there?
po, Jun 02 2011
  

       Coal.   

       And maybe the lawnmower.

       tsk.

       Well this idea could go in there for a start.

       //what do you want to put in there?// Fossils, of course. To confound atheistical paleontologists.

       That would be palaeontology.   

       Stuff from 'Strata' - aha! I've got one.

       We need a science:cosmological engineering category. That will take care of everything. After all, what are we more concerned with: understanding how something works or harnessing it for unprecedented consequence?

       [19thly] Good catch. Yes, I specifically had in mind the boot in the coal measure.

       If you build a better category, halfbaked ideas will beat a path to its door.
nineteenthly, Jun 03 2011
  

       Good point.   

       There's a category "home: pest control: trap" which is generically OK, but there really should be a category, "Halfbakery: Mousetrap: Better"

       // We need a science:cosmological engineering category. //   

       I second that. It's even been practised since Neolithic times: [link]   

       However, I'd say we also need a cosmic engineering category. AIUI, while cosmological engineering attempts to affect or control the cosmos itself, cosmic engineering [link] merely affects or controls smaller things in reaction to or anticipation of cosmic behaviors. Conflation and inflation probably don't go well together.
