Quote[s] of the day

Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I’m not sure about the universe.

[W]hen people thought the Earth was flat, they were wrong. When people thought the Earth was spherical they were wrong. But if you think that thinking the Earth is spherical is just as wrong as thinking the Earth is flat, then your view is wronger than both of them put together.

Green Day - Longview Live

Usually, we refrain from such non-ninja groups as Green Day, but this performance definitely got me amped.

Cinco de Mayo

You know the economy is in the pits when you don’t even see Cinco de Mayo beer commercials. Beer executives have reportedly been criticizing the calendar makers for putting the holiday on a Monday for consecutive years now. OK, but seriously, I didn’t even see the generally piss poor marketing campaign I’m used to. Do I just not watch enough TV or… what gives?

Anyway, this is just about as Mexican as it gets. This just happens to be from 5 de Mayo, 2005. I think this dude says "bio-lingual."AA De todos modos, as we say in Spanish, most (American) people can appreciate a Holiday that’s about whoopin’ on the French.

Floating turbines may join Norway’s offshore rigs

UTSIRA, Norway (Reuters) - Giant turbines the size of jumbo jets bobbing on the North Sea may soon become as common off Norway as oil and gas platforms.

At least that is the ambition of Norwegian authorities and industry, eager to splash some green on their oily image and use their offshore expertise to corner a potentially lucrative new market — floating wind farms in deep sea waters.

Norway’s government is contemplating licensing "blocks" for offshore wind generation, and Norwegian oil company StatoilHydro aims to start work next year on a floating turbine project near the site of the first North Sea oil discovery 40 years ago.

"We are the best place in Norway if you love wind," Mayor Jarle Nilsen said of Utsira, a North Sea island of just 6 sq km (2.3 square miles) and home to 210 people who already get most of their power from two onshore turbines.

"We had wind every day except one last year," he told Reuters, thrilled by the prospect of two experimental offshore wind projects anchoring in nearby waters.

With Europe’s second-longest coastline after Greece, Norway is hard hit by winds blowing off the Atlantic and, along with Britain, well placed for wind energy projects.

Offshore turbines can be twice as powerful as land-based units due to stronger, more sustained winds at sea.

Out of sight from the coast, such wind farms could use modified, more efficient turbines because limiting noise, a key concern for land-based wind farms, is not as critical offshore. [reuters]

Nigerian Boxing

Competitors crouch down in a ready stance, extending their free, unwrapped hand out as far as their opponent will allow.

The idea is to test your reach, and tempt your opponent to make a move, and maybe leave himself open.

The boxers can stare at each other in this pose for what seems like minutes before striking.
