Skyscraper in the Clouds
"Analemma tower... is conceived as a huge construction tethered to an asteroid that would be moved into what the firm describes as ‘an eccentric geosynchronous orbit’ over Earth. The orbit allows the structure to move between the northern and southern hemispheres, tracing out a figure-eight over the surface. With the slowest speed over the ground at the top and bottom of the figure-eight, Clouds Architecture Office suggests that occupants could move back and forth, interacting with ground resources at these points. New York City is suggested as the location for one of the slow parts of the preferred orbit."

On television they were depicted as being executed by the hanging about the neck until death on a white stage and in front of witnesses," Murray wrote.

Lucas was not eligible to serve as a Congressional Member after that time."

Roko's basilisk - RationalWiki
"According to the proposition, it is possible that this ultimate (future godlike artificial) intelligence may punish those who fail to help it, with greater punishment accorded those who knew the importance of the task. This is conventionally comprehensible, but the notable bit of the basilisk and similar constructions is that the AI and the person punished have no causal interaction: the punishment would be of a simulation of the person, which the AI would construct by deduction from first principles."
