Alien Animal Safari – Day Dreaming Of Exotic Locals

So I have this dream and wish that we all – everyone who is alive right now – becomes alive in a future that I have dreamed up. A very, very easy living with the advancement of science & technology set in a future about 5000 years from now where humankind has left the earth far behind and settled on 10 planets and 7 moons in a solar system far away from here and there is no illness, no hunger, no killing, no diseases, accidents, murders and due to our force field – which covers our planets and moons, our spaceships / starships, vehicles and even our suits that we use to walk on other planets – making us virtually invincible and because of a virus that combined with the forcefield mutated us, we do not age and therefore can live forever!

Ok, whew! That out of the way, now read this post which is about what I have been day dreaming for several months now. Ok, good. Now once we get to the planets that we are touring we will need land vehicles to get around and see the various sights and scenery and the animals and birds of said planets like a extra-terrestrial safari. So after we leave our solar system, the next day is everyone – my family, cousins, nieces, nephews, uncles & aunts – just settling down in their suites and setting up their computer devices so they can keep in touch with folks, studies & work back home. While I had prepared the schedule I had purposefully planned it that way. However the next day, we reach a planet several light years away, that is the first stop with a lot of interest.

So like I mentioned, we need land vehicles – that can also fly to and from the large spaceship and to the planets and moons we will visit. Take a look at these futuristic mini-buses. These are the airport shuttles at the Calgary airport and these have influenced my brain to create similar styled, but with a lot of seats and very comfortable seats at that, vehicles that serve this purpose. So the first planet that we visit is special because it has these huge animals that are like dinosaurs and other old earth creatures give us a chance to see what our earth’s past was like.

So we have 8 of these vehicles and I assign them to each of my 7 cousins who will drive the other vehicles and keep one for myself. The rest of the family will sit in the seats inside the mini-buses as do the robots and we land on the planet and then meet the “safari” organizers. There is a team of around 200 humans and robots on the planet who have plotted paths for visitors to come and travel in similar vehicles and revel in seeing these large animals walk about and react to the humans in vehicles passing by with just a curious glance (no attacks or anything).

As we ride through, riding our mini-buses in a line one after the other, and take in seeing these beautiful large creatures and birds in their natural habitat, while sitting in our air-conditioned comfort and sipping on cold drinks, it feels so great. We take a long break in one open area for a big lunch and then continue through the rest of the safari. By the evening time, we are all eager to get back to our ship so we fly back in and then relax for a while before enjoying a large dinner where we all discuss about the things we saw before retiring back to our rooms/suites for a well needed sleep.

6 Benefits Of Eating Avocados

1. Rich in nutrients

Avocados are a source of vitamins C, E, K, and B6, as well as riboflavin, niacin, folate, pantothenic acid,  magnesium, and potassium. They also provide lutein, beta carotene, and omega-3 fatty acids. Avocados contain high levels of healthy, beneficial fats, which can help a person feel fuller between meals. Eating fat slows the breakdown of carbohydrates, which helps keep blood sugar levels stable.

2. Healthy for the heart

In every 100 g of avocado there are 76 milligrams of a natural plant sterol called beta sitosterol. Regularly consuming beta sitosterol and other plant sterols may help maintain healthy cholesterol levels, which are important for heart health.

3. Great for vision

Avocados contain lutein and zeaxanthin, two phytochemicals present in eye tissue. They provide antioxidant protection to help minimize damage, including from UV light. The monounsaturated fatty acids in avocados also support the absorption of other beneficial fat-soluble antioxidants, such as beta carotene. As a result, adding avocados to the diet may help reduce the risk of developing age-related macular degeneration.

4. May help prevent osteoporosis

Half an avocado provides approximately 18% of the daily value of vitamin K. This nutrient is often overlooked but is essential for bone health. Taking in enough vitamin K can support bone health by increasing calcium absorption and reducing the urinary excretion of calcium.

5. Components may prevent cancer

Studies have not yet assessed a direct link between avocado consumption and a reduction in cancer risk. However, avocados do contain compounds that may help prevent the onset of some cancers. Research has associated an optimal intake of folate with a reduced risk of developing colon, stomach, pancreatic, and cervical cancers. However, the mechanism behind this association remains unclear. Half of an avocado contains roughly 59 mcg of folate, 15% of the daily value.

Avocados also contain high levels of phytochemicals and carotenoids, which may have anticancer properties. Studies have shown that carotenoids, specifically, may protect against cancer progression.

6. Supporting fetal health

Folate is important for a healthy pregnancy. Adequate intake reduces the risk of miscarriage and neural tube abnormalities. Consume at least 600 micrograms (mcg) of folate per day when pregnant. One avocado may contain as much as 160 mcg. Avocados also contain fatty acids that are integral to a healthy diet and fetal development.
