Today i was watching the news and it dawned on me that certain rural areas do not have water and electricity. if a political party - most probably the one in power? - was to deliver these services to the people, they would no doubt vote for them in the next election, yes? so, without further ado, as it is the right thing to do, we need to get them these basic services, and, quickly. I suppose water is more prized than electricity, so, we need to get 'them' water first. this can be done by digging a rut into the ground for the pipes, and, having trucks lay pipes quickly like with my rail idea - the truck drives right next to the 'trench,' or close to it, and then rolls a plastic pipes out the back, and the people roll it into the trench with their hands, as it is light and round, yes? then, they secure this pipeline quickly with nuts and bolts while the truck drives onto the next joining area with more pipes. building these pipes can be done on the spot with a mould for traditional pipes, where, they lay a cast around the cement pipes or such, to get the shape of it, then place a pipe with a smaller diameter inside it, and then lay the inside with plastics to make the pipe that will be used. maybe this could be done even on the move, it might take about a day or two to set up, at the longest. The electricity is more or less the same as the pipes, but, we should combine the two. seeing as how wires are cut to be sold for cash, nearly anywhere along rail lines, we could easily supply the natives with electricity by running a wire along the outside of the pipes. or, we could build simple power plants near the villages, of course.
