If you’ve traveled to a developing country, I’m sure you’ve seen the small three-wheeled carts which are carrying a pile of bags that are haphazardly lashed together in a mound about the size of two elephants, engulfing the driver and most of the cart.
1. Therefore, excluding the weight of the passenger, motorized vehicles should never carry any load that is heavier than the vehicle itself.
After overhearing the ill-founded, racist judgments of a local farmer on a train, I have come up with this simple rule of thumb… (or rule of mouth if you will).
2. You need at least 10 teeth in your mouth to publically express your views on international issues.
Respect the laws of time. Trains all leave on a schedule of some kind, and the sun rises at different times than in your capital city.
3. Accordingly putting clocks in train stations and accepting separate time-zones should not be sloughed off as an unnecessary concession to the ever-so-burdensome spacetime.
If you need megaphones to constantly blast a soundtrack reminding citizens to act “civilized,” it is a pretty blatant admission that your society is NOT civilized.
4. Therefore, to at least allow for the false appearance of development, you should do away with all pamphlets, megaphones, and personnel in charge of publicizing the current lack of civilization in your area.
After cautiously padding through the bloody runoff akin to the aftermath of a Mayan sacrificial ceremony, I advise developing societies that…
5. There should be mandatory distance put between the slaughtering grounds of all live-poultry markets and pedestrian walkways.
Possibly the most simple and dramatic change in your society can be made by accepting the fact that any driver who sustains a honked horn for more than 5-seconds is clearly unaware of what a horn was actually invented for.
6. Therefore, cars should be rigged with sensors that force-eject drivers after 5-seconds of a honked horn.
Lastly, there is a fine line between breathing in polluted air and breathing in aired pollution. To mitigate one person’s harmful effect on the air other people breath, an equilibrium should be maintained between the air pollution from cars and from cigarettes.
7. Therefore, the “drive to survive” program will give citizens the choice to own a car OR smoke cigarettes.
With these 7 steps, your society will instantly develop to the point where you can then implement the much more complicated, “waiting in line” policy, where people will… well I don’t want to spoil it… but I’ll just say that it works wonders.
