Chill-Can is the “World’s First Self Chilling Beverage Can.”   An extraordinarily valuable technology for those who consistently fail to plan ahead or have difficulty delaying gratification.

On the other hand, exoteric Christianity only offered a convenient thought-free means by which one could avoid, offset, or minimize self-ruination.  I mean, like, who wants that?

Idea:  Harness a fleet of drones, offer guaranteed 5 minute delivery of self-chilling refreshment to the greater Metro area.  Single serving only.  And yes, we’ll have an app for that!  </sarc>

The words of Joseph Campbell:

“You can tell what’s informing a society by what the tallest building is. When you approach a medieval town, the cathedral is the tallest thing in the place. When you approach an eighteenth-century town, it is the political palace that’s the tallest thing in the place. And when you approach a modern city, the tallest places are the office buildings, the center of economic life.”  

Demolition will effectively make any and every building in Youngstown taller than Immaculate Conception Church.

Note:  I am not Catholic, but the beloved wife is Catholic.


Immaculate Conception’s cornerstone reads 1888, making it the oldest Catholic church in Youngstown. It was an Irish parish that served the immigrant families who made up the once vibrant neighborhood that surrounded it.
