Apparently people who play @QuizUp are a bunch of alkies cause I sure get randomly paired up w/a lot of "Lager Lovers." ;-p
Also find it kinda odd that you can log in to the game using your Google account but you can't find friends from Google if you didn't log in w/a Google account. - ronin

We've Gone Solar. The Data Already Shows Green Benefits.
"Long on our whimsical 'to do' list has been to consider going solar. We've always known it was good for the environment, to create our own energy and give it back to the power grid, but after months and months of getting notes from PG&E saying we were using well more than our unfair share of electricity, thanks to keeping three young kids warm and in clean clothes and dishes on a daily basis, I made an investment in solar - calling up Sunrun, and getting panels on our roof that will be making energy for at least the next twenty years." - Louis Gray from Bookmarklet
35 kWh/day? Where's all that electricity going? My own consumption last year was only 2.8 kWh/day (or 1000 kWh for the year). Granted, that's only a one-person household, but here in Germany a typical family household is estimated at 2000-3000 kWh. When I lived in the Bay Area for a while many years ago, I rarely had to turn on the air-conditioning. Why isn't solar more widespread in... more... - Nils Sandin
Still, the biggest drawback to solar panels on a house is in the event of fire. The high-voltage system is still energized, so any water used by the firemen could electrocute them, so there have been cases of the fire department letting it burn. :-( That could be a major hurdle in the US, where so many houses are made of wood instead of brick. - Nils Sandin
Nils, much of our use is from our washer and dryer, our fridge and freezer, and HVAC. That doesn't even touch TVs or other electronics. - Louis Gray
Nils: In fact, California is adding solar capacity rapidly--but those German figures are much lower than typical California figures, which are in turn much lower than typical U.S. figures. (Our two-person household, a much smaller house than Louis's, uses 11kWh/day averaged over a year. 95-98% of that comes from a small rooftop installation.) I don't believe most U.S. solar installations are "high-voltage," for that matter. - Walt Crawford
I want my solar panels in the desert instead of on my house. They'll be higher efficiency and be better maintained. :-/ - Amit Patel
oh no, I want mine on the house. I want solar to eliminate the need (or radically reduce it!) for distribution lines and electric companies! - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
The previous owner of our house had these installed and they do help a lot, but mostly during the late spring/summer months. Generation takes a nose-dive during the winter (especially this past winter) due to more bad weather. I think at best during the past few months our electric bill was halved. But I would think you guys in Cali get more benefit year round than we do here in the... more... - ronin
I don't believe SREC's are available here. But yes, we surely do a lot better than halving our electricity bill. For us: first year, we were positive. Second year, the $4.50/month meter fee paid for whatever we used. Third year, we paid $30 more. For the year. My brother (same town, a few miles away) consistently runs positive--but he has a bigger installation and uses time-of-day metering, which we don't. - Walt Crawford

Giraffe 'kisses' goodbye dying zoo worker in touching photograph | Fox News
"A touching moment between a zoo worker and one of his favorite animals has gone viral. According to a report by Dutch News, 54-year-old Mario, who worked for the Rotterdam Zoo in the Netherlands for many years, was recently diagnosed with a terminal brain tumor.  But before he died, he had one wish: to say goodbye to the animals he cared for. Thanks to a Dutch organization called the Ambulance Wish Foundation, Mario was transported from his hospital to the zoo and wheeled around the giraffe enclosure. That’s when one of the giraffes came up to Mario to give him a kiss goodbye. “It was a very special moment. You saw him smile," said Kees Veldboer, director of Ambulance Wish. ‘It was special that the animals knew him and could sense all was not well with him.”" - Steve C from Bookmarklet

"Attempting to display a photo from the Seattle crash of a news helicopter, Fox31 accidentally showed an X-rated shot from the iPad of anchor Kirk Yuhnke. Deadspin posted the video, in which can be observed the gasps and hands flying-to-mouths of fellow members of the morning team. Fox31 News Director Ed Kosowski said, "We are going to make a public statement. We are not ready to comment about any potential action against employees. That's a personnel matter." For now, he said, an apology and explanation is forthcoming." - Eric - Watch Me Now from Bookmarklet

This is all there needs to be said, "But some civil libertarians and women’s rights advocates worry that if Gibbs is convicted, the precedent could inspire more prosecutions of Mississippi women and girls for everything from miscarriage to abortion — and that African Americans, who suffer twice as many stillbirths as whites, would be affected the most.". They're just trying to find ways to incarcerate more black people. - Anika
