Now this is some serious pedal power!  Lots of pix of bike powered machines.  Good stuff.  I wish is that they had a bit more in the way of how-to’s on the site but they state that they are willing to share designs with other non-profit orgs.

Eyewitness – the huntsman of the spider

Talk about wire pollution. These photos are of communications and power cables in Thailand. Not sure where the title came from. The above link is to a babelfish.com translation of the original Russian page. The translated text is more than a little convoluted at the very least. The pix are also posted below and are linked to fullsized images.

Talk about a farking idiot.  The article reads like the ravings of someone totally out of touch with reality.  But then again he seems to be a hard core follower of Islam so…

Supertelevangelistic Sex-and-Drugs Psychosis :: Accordion Guy

Laugh out loud funny! Thanks for the link Joey!

Lyrics:

Here are the lyrics — feel free to sing along!

I used to be a master of the anti-gay crusade
Until a butch disaster blew my pastor masquerade
But if it’s true I’m pounding more than pulpits, don’t blame me
It’s ’cause I caught my hooker-tweaker-stud’s infirmity

It’s
Supertelevangelistic sex-and-drugs psychosis
Worse than plague and bird flu crossed with osteoporosis
We were playing doctor and he gave this diagnosis:
Supertelevangelistic sex-and-drugs psychosis

Umm Haggard Bakker Swaggart umm Tammy Faye
Umm Haggard Bakker Swaggart umm Tammy Faye

I found the perfect therapist – the kind that gives massage
I like to drive my Escort and I park in his garage
I swear he only serves me crank when all his Coke is gone
And then he helps me straighten out my Peter, James, and John

Blame
Supertelevangelistic sex-and-drugs psychosis
That’s my greatest guilty pleasure next to Guns N’ Roses
Good thing there’s no ban on it in all the books of Moses
Supertelevangelistic sex-and-drugs psychosis

Umm Haggard Bakker Swaggart umm Tammy Faye
Umm Haggard Bakker Swaggart umm Tammy Faye

It seems all pious public figures bugger on the sly
But Jesus loved republicans and sinners; so must I
Say “Holy moley, Mister Foley! That boy’s underage!”
But I believe the congressman has turned another page

Oh!
Supertelevangelistic sex-and-drugs psychosis
Next time, better cut me off at handshakes and Mimosas
No more meth or men for me – at least in overdoses!
Supertelevangelistic sex-and-drugs psychosis!

(Just a spoonful of crystal helps the prostitute go down…)

Treehugger: Home Wind Turbines Are A Worthless, Dangerous, Wasteful Vanity

Treehugger: Home Wind Turbines Are A Worthless, Dangerous, Wasteful Vanity
We’re entering a phase where anything expert “greens” say can and will be used to argue against renewable energy. Or at least put in a lousy context by the media. Here’s an anecdote that illustrates the process, brought to us via tip. The Daily Mail reports under the headline Wind turbines ‘may actually do more harm than good’ that:- “Home wind turbines have become the must-have home improvement among people eager to help save the planet and flaunt their green credentials. Dubbed ‘the ultimate green fashion statement’, [turbines] are selling in the thousands, amid claims they can cut household electricity bills by 30 per cent”. The story goes on to state that “…they barely produce enough electricity to power a hairdryer in many houses. They also do nothing to tackle greenhouses gases, while there are far better ways to cut down on energy bills”. Wow. Green fashionistas are ruining the view from the street with useless equipment, then, eh? Worse than that, the story goes on to point out that ‘in some cases chimneys may be toppled and structures made noisy or unstable as a result of wind turbines.’

I wonder just what kind of idiot they have writing about alternate tech at the Daily Mail.  And what kind of editors are they employing that allow things like this to go to press.  The complete article at Treehugger takes on the Daily Mail’s “facts” and takes them apart…

They need to lose their license as a bank and not just a few customers.  But maybe with this story on the net that too will happen.  Bye-bye BoA…

Just noted that I had broken the 2500 barrier some time ago.  Doesn’t seem like I could have made that many posts.  Nor did I think that I had that many categories.  So many interesting things on the “interwebs” to read and post about, so little time… 😉

Interesting bit of historical research.  Shows that not everything “they” say is good for you is actually “good” for you.
