       //replaces worn-out vacuum with new fresh vacuum// That is very wasteful. You could just clean it, using a vacuum cleaner.

       I went to the library today and requested an Internet terminal from the attendant to (remember this) "look for a job". A while later, as I was perusing the HB, the same guy walks behind me and glances at the screen just as I pull this post up.   

       Thankyou HB.

       I used to be well practised in forensic debating techniques, but I had to give it up. My palms were becoming hairy.

       [FlyingToaster ] I would say you are eminently qualified for the posted job.

       // worn-out vacuum //   

       We hope you have made provision for the "depleted" vacuum to be safely disposed of.

       // his brain stopped working //   

       Mission accomplished.

       // We hope you have made provision for the "depleted" vacuum to be safely disposed of. //   

       The plan is to ship the depleted vacuum in large containerships to Pocmloc Industries for vacuum cleaning and recycling and/or safe disposal by launching into outer space. The launch costs should be quite low.

       Now that's interesting.

       No, not when all those concepts weren't networked in the above way.

       Max, your airship programme could be piloted underwater, where air is less dense than the atmosphere. Also, underwater is spacious, so there would be many places to go.
bungston, Mar 04 2011

       //put enough sulphur hexaflouride into the atmosphere to raise its density// That idea is far too good for a mere anno. Do it in a volume smaller than the Earth's atmosphere. I want videos of insects flying in an atmosphere of 21% O_2, 69% N_2, 10% SF_6. In fact, why settle for 21%? Make it 31% and have 15% larger insects as well <link>   

       No, wait! In addition to insects I demand echolocating insectivorous bats as well!

       When the Internet first hit the streets, I was working for a friend of mine who had started up an ISP/Consulting business. Sweet hardware, but the software was hardly turnkey: everything was virtually duct-taped together by another friend (we had all attended some courses together). I found the concept of reading a webpage hosted way out in country A with links and sidebars to virtual papers in countries B & C, totally jaw-dropping.   

       So as I'm taking a break, late at night, from trying to make sense of a jimmy'd up Access database, to fill in the gaps between the original guy's ideas and my own... heck nobody's around, let's get geeky in the server room; play with the blinkenlights.   

       Ooh, wonder if Playboy has a website. Of course they do. The Indigo, running Console for the ISP's freshly finally-got-it-up'n'running server, immediately locks up solid.   

       And of course, unbeknownst to me, while I'm trying to fix the terminal, the highly religious very upstanding pillar-of-the-community owner and his charming wife have slipped in the back door of the ops room on an ad hoc tour, only to be greeted by Miss March, full colour in all her glory, on a 21" monitor.   

       Appended my own vacuum blimp Idea, "Prayer Wheel", to your list. <link>
