Solar energy that doesn’t block the view

A team of researchers at Michigan State University has developed a new type of solar concentrator that when placed over a window creates solar energy while allowing people to actually see through the window. It is called a transparent luminescent solar concentrator and can be used on buildings, cell phones and any other device that has a clear surface. And, according to Richard Lunt of MSU’s College of Engineering, the key word is “transparent.”

I know that there is a lot of space inside those suits where there’s no person, so the effect itself is I’m sure very simple to execute, but.

That’s not what amazes me about Whale Mutant being slowly impaled on-screen, y’know?

another way to ruin a pop classic with teenage angst.  Cyndi Lauper would be turning in her freshly dug grave

ah yEs, those angsty teenage years when overdramatic girls go through that oh-so-trivial phase of believing they deserve fundamental human rights a hah ha *wipes a stray tear of mirth*

Cyndi Laupers not even dead

Cyndi Lauper is a long-time activist for human rights and would most likely be holding the damn sign herself

"It is not a dirty word, "feminism." I just think that women belong in the human population with the same rights as everybody else. … The problem is, "A feminist looks like this, or is like that." We are taught not to like ourselves as women, we are taught what we’re supposed to look like, what our measurements are supposed to be. I never hear what measurements men are supposed to be. Just women.

  - Cyndi Lauper

Has this dude ever even listened to the lyrics of that song?

I come home in the morning light
My mother says when you gonna live your life right
Oh mother dear we’re not the fortunate ones
And girls they want to have fun

Some boys take a beautiful girl
And hide her away from the rest of the world
I want to be the one to walk in the sun
Oh girls they want to have fun

Girls having fun is feminist as fuck.

Girls having fun is a lot harder than boys having fun, because of all the barriers society places between girls and having carefree fun.

This is not a blow-off song:

That’s all they really want
Some fun
When the working day is done
Girls - they want to have fun

It’s about being allowed to have some time for you after you’ve completed your commitments, and how frustrating it is to be hemmed in all the time. ‘That’s all they really want’ isn’t saying ‘women are just frivolous’, OK, it’s saying ‘Give us a BREAK - we aren’t asking for that much! Being an independent woman isn’t being joyless, we just want what you take for granted: fun’. JFC.

秋、何しよっかな

2014-08-30 17:34:21

最近涼しくなり、過ごしやすくなってきた。

窓を開けていれば気持ち良い風が入ってきて扇風機もいらない。

窓際で本を読んでいると心地良すぎて、気がついたら寝ていたり。

いかんいかんと思い、読むのを再開しても気がついたら…

集中力がないわけではない。

そんな問題ではなく、心地良すぎるのです。

このまま秋っぽくなってくれるといいな。

“秋”といえば○○の秋と様々言われるが、皆さんはどのような“秋”にしたいですか?

僕は...まだ考えてない。

Autumn, why do…

His face skin looks so so bad T.T So is his appearance

I wish he would care for it more

Huh. I think his appearance looks pretty good for just sitting around slouching. I just wish he would eat a little more. He’s the kind that forgets to eat when he’s busy, and he’s always busy!

He thought he was invincible

here’s the link to the article

Good.

Not big on him being charged as an adult, since he obviously thinks like a child, but he really does need to be put far away from every privilege he ever held for a while.
