This guy is a proud one. Also… Be wary of any plant that’s taller than you.

SOLAR-JET project funded by the EU

Synthesized 'solar' jet fuel: Renewable kerosene from sunlight, water and carbon dioxide

Synthesized ‘solar’ jet fuel: Renewable kerosene from sunlight, water and carbon dioxide

With the first ever production of synthesized “solar” jet fuel, the EU-funded SOLAR-JET project has successfully demonstrated the entire production chain for renewable kerosene obtained directly from sunlight, water and carbon dioxide, therein potentially revolutionizing the future of aviation. This process has also the potential to produce any other type of fuel for transport applications, such as diesel, gasoline or pure hydrogen in a more sustainable way.

Another article I read on this noted that using this process, jets could be zero emissions.

“vegan strip club riot”

Portland Police arrest 35 in Black Friday vegan strip club riot

Portland Police arrest 35 in Black Friday vegan strip club riot

While millions of shoppers throughout the United States were fighting cold weather and crowds for the best deals, hundreds of people in Portland, Ore. overwhelmed a vegan strip club in the early morning hours of Black Friday.

Casa Diablo, billed as the world’s first vegan strip club, held its first ever Black Friday sale Nov. 28, and was clearly unprepared for the onslaught of excited customers who braved the rain for hours for the club’s 5 a.m. opening.

Patrons of the Northwest Portland establishment got into a brawl over 59¢ a minute lap dances, despite the club’s attempt to be prepared by having 24 dancers available that morning.

“We were utterly blown away by the amount of customers who showed up this morning,” said Cruelty-free Cleopatra, who is one of the club’s most popular dancers.

Stupid iCloud Drive syncs EVERYTHING to iPhone, hostility ensues

tcr! · Nov 29, 2014 at 9:44 pm

icloud drive

The notion of automatic local backups to far off clouds is a good one. I had been using Google Drive since it came out a few years back and with Apple’s new iCloud offering and my new iPhone I thought I’d migrate once Yosemite came out.

I opted for the 250GB plan and drug all our photos (gigs and gigs and more gigs) to the iCloud folder in Finder. Needless to say, it didn’t go too well.

What they really mean when they say…

Any kind of file. On all your devices.”

… is …

All of your files. On all your devices.

Sure enough Apple’s iCloud moved the whole photo collection up to their cloud but they also tried to move the whole photo collection down to my 8GB phone. Smooth move Apple.

I was greeted with, You have one thimble of space left on your phone when I picked it up to see what the Internets had tonight. I had to fritter about and drag the photo collection back to the Google Drive folder. I also downgraded to the 20GB plan and hope my iPhone does the right thing and takes them off the phone.

Funny thing is that I can’t even see them on my phone since Apple implemented the sync so it “just works” and therefore you can’t actually see all the files you sync.

And then there’s iCloud’s Mail that seems to thrash about for a good 5 minutes whenever I move an email from one folder to another. So I’ve stopped using that service completely (old IMAP is a hundred times more reliable) and don’t even get me started again on how Apple jacked up Mail.app.

The hell is up, Apple, with all these shitty implementations?

Google creeps me out anymore so the revert is just a temp thing. Maybe I’ll have another look at Dropbox’s pricing plans.

PS— Ever wondered why iCloud sucks?

I have to spend so much time explaining iCloud crap to folks when they see their bandwidth charges. Down to your Mac, up to the cloud, down to your iPad, up to the cloud…Rinse and repeat.

ps/ I hate Mac Mail.

As Boromir once said, “One does not simply install iCloud.”

Chernobyl almost 30 years later via drone

Drone reveals footage of a city decaying after Chernobyl explosion

A frozen Ferris wheel, poisoned forests and paint sloughing off an empty swimming pool; these are the remains of a city devastated by a nuclear disaster nearly 30 years ago.

Pripyat in Ukraine, once home to a population of 50,000, was just a few miles from the Chernobyl power plant which exploded in 1986.

Now, a Devon-based documentary maker, Danny Cooke, has captured the area in decay by flying around the abandoned area using a camera attached to a drone.

Watch Once Upon a Time TV Show - ABC.com

I never watch Once Upon a Time but M. loves it. Whenever there’s a really intense part, she has to fill me in with what’s going on. I suppose it’s her way of processing the intensity.
