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.”
what if obama does the ice bucket challenge and nominates queen elizabeth
what if obama actually talks about what’s going on in ferguson
what if obama stopped exterminating the middle eastern population with drones
what if obama lowered my gotdamn tuition
What if everyone gets educated and stops acting like the President can make decisions for the country by themselves
The President is the commander and chief of the military, he’s the one who orders those drone strikes and he can call them off. As for Ferguson, it doesn’t take a ton of effort to go on TV and say “this is bullshit now stop it.”
But in the week and a half I’ve been in the UK, I’ve gone out twice, and these are things that have happened to me:
-Told to smile multiple times by two different men
-Been checked out on the street, to where I heard their opinions formed as “daamn”
-Been with a group of friends dancing and then somehow surrounded by a creepy fucking ring of definitely older men
-Felt like a piece of meat just by the fact that every man stared, smiled, or said whatever he wanted to when he felt like it
The only good experiences I had was when a homeless man told me I was beautiful after I said I didn’t have any change, and two boys I chatted with before I even left campus.
I know that’s nowhere near as bad as most people have experienced, and I’ve never been in a position of fear for myself, but it’s just so goddamn frustrating, that I want to go out and have fun, and if I want to dance with a stranger, then I might, but what I don’t want to do is go out and every time run into assholes and creepers who I wouldn’t think twice about interacting with no matter how drunk I was.
NEVER EVER TOUCH A WRITER/ARTIST/ANYONE’S PERSONAL NOTEBOOK. DO NOT GRAB IT
DO NOT GRAB IT AND TAKE IT
DO NOT TAKE IT
DO NOT TAKE IT
DO NOT LOOK THROUGH IT WITHOUT THEIR EXPLICIT AND CONSISTENT PERMISSION
THERE IS A REASON IT IS THEIR PERSONAL NOTEBOOK AND NOT THEIR PUBLIC EVERYONE GRAB IT NOTEBOOK
I DON’T CARE IF YOU ARE JUST PICKING IT UP TO SEE SOMETHING I AM SHOWING TO YOU
DO NOT TOUCH IT
You stole my friend’s wallet out of her purse while she was dancing and then I fucking saw you sitting on the street pulling sim cards out of the phones you’d stolen too. If I wasn’t a five foot two female with zero fighting skill I would have beaten your ass, but instead I’ll yell into the void here because fuck you.
this is such an underrated ep! it’s one of my fave early ones. Oh Ben!
