Rules prevent solar panels in many states with abundant sunlight - LA Times
"Few places in the country are so warm and bright as Mary Wilkerson's property on the beach near St. Petersburg, Fla., a city once noted in the Guinness Book of World Records for a 768-day stretch of sunny days. But while Florida advertises itself as the Sunshine State, power company executives and regulators have worked successfully to keep most Floridians from using that sunshine to generate their own power. Wilkerson discovered the paradox when she set out to harness sunlight into electricity for the vintage cottages she rents out at Indian Rocks Beach. She would have had an easier time installing solar panels, she found, if she had put the homes on a flatbed and transported them to chilly Massachusetts." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet

F1 boss Bernie Ecclestone pays staggering £60million out of court settlement to be cleared of bribery charges in Germany - People - News - The Independent
"Bernie Ecclestone is expected to be cleared of bribery charges in Germany after paying an out-of-court settlement of a staggering £60m or $100m, which is believed to be the largest in the country’s history. The £60m will be handed to the state of Bavaria and Ecclestone’s lawyer Sven Thomas revealed to The Independent that he will ask the court on Tuesday to use the money to build a new Formula One track in the region. “It seems that we will be successful in the settlement,” Thomas said on Monday. “The amount is not confidential. They are talking about $100m.”" - Me from Bookmarklet

Shhh Soup and Starmama someone might notice - Steve C Team Marina
Under German law, you can basically make anything part of the settlement as long as it's not against the "public good". Part of the settlement was no conviction would be recorded etc. It was in "public good" because most reports were that the prosecution's case wasn't likely to win and he would have walked anyway, be it after a much longer case. - Johnny from iPhone

The real reason why <s>the Fellowship</s> the Company couldn't fly on Eagles to Mordor is because the Eagles are kind of dicks and they don't really care about humans or elves or dwarves or hobbits. Like, the Eagles just watched idly while the elven city of Gondolin got invaded and razed by Morgoth. They didn't even help Tuor and Idris escape!
Then why do they intervene when they do? - Todd Hoff
As far as I can tell, they're capricious beings who answer to no one except Manwë. - Victor Ganata
Which is why they make dramatic but horrible plot devices. - Todd Hoff
also, "will they save us or snack on us?" is likely on the minds of many who encounter them. - Big Joe Silence
Wouldn't Sauron have conquered them as well though? - Andrew C (✔)
Well, yeah, that's Peter Jackson's and Fran Walsh's explanation: that the Eagles would've run into the wingéd Nazgûl and Sauron would've totally seen them coming. - Victor Ganata
Although I do like the idea that flying in with the Eagles was really Gandalf's Plan A, but he got screwed by Saruman and the Balrog. - Victor Ganata
You gotta admit, dropping a hobbit into the mouth of a volcano while under attack isn't easy. - Victor Ganata
(I'm also convinced Plan A totally involved sacrificing Frodo. You can't make hobbit omelets without cooking a hobbit in magma.) - Victor Ganata
This also reminds me of the weird anomaly where <s>the Fellowship</s> the Company sees something that blots out the stars before they make it to Moria, even though according to the timeline, it's unlikely that the Nazgûl had already managed to walk all the way to Mordor to get flying mounts. - Victor Ganata
Although, granted, about two months passed between the Nazgûl losing their horses at the Fords of Bruinen and the Company setting out from Rivendell. Still, Boromir took 110 days to get from Minas Tirith to Rivendell, and he had a horse for most of the trip. Then again, the Nazgûl probably don't need to eat or sleep…. - Victor Ganata
BTW, no one ever asked the dwarfs if they could make a hot enough forge? - Andrew C (✔)
For real, though, a forge capable of working steel is at least as hot as magma. But Orodruin is probably a *magical* volcano…. - Victor Ganata from iPhone
I figure it must have something to do with Mt. Doom itself because even if the dwarves couldn't, surely Gandalf and Aragorn had traveled enough to know where to find another active volcano or a magma-filled chasm like the one Maedhros threw himself into. - Victor Ganata from iPhone
Supposedly Sauron's magic was involved, but Gandalf has magic himself. Maybe he was lazy, though the Balrog encounter probably ended up costing him more energy than just making a magical forge. - Andrew C (✔)
I suppose in-Universe it's probably because Morgoth likely created Orodruin in the first place. But as far as relative power among the Maiar is concerned, Gandalf the Grey wasn't as powerful as Saruman, and Saruman couldn't hold a candle against Sauron. (Maybe Melian could take him one-on-one even though he's supposed to be the most powerful Maiar ever, considering Lúthien managed to kill him without dying and probably all five Wizards at once could take him out but Saruman fucked that plan up all to hell.) - Victor Ganata from iPhone
I guess only the Valinorean elves knew how to build spaceships, because otherwise they could've done to the One Ring what Eärendil did with one of the Silmarils: just park it in low earth orbit and hope Sauron doesn't figure out rocketry. - Victor Ganata from iPhone
Huh, I always figured the Maiar were relatively equal and Sauron just had some cheat code or something. I really have barely skimmed the books. =) - Andrew C (✔)
Heh, yeah, Sauron probably did have an advantage since he wasn't bound by ethics/morality. - Victor Ganata from iPhone
But considering that Gandalf the Grey *with the Ring of Fire* couldn't beat Saruman one-on-one, I'm pretty sure Sauron would've annihilated Gandalf the Grey even if Sauron didn't have a body. - Victor Ganata from iPhone
But we're not talking about direct combat. Surely Sauron didn't exert 100% of his powers into powering Mt Doom's forge. Put the good wizards together and focus their entire efforts just on the Destroy-the-One-Ring effort. - Andrew C (✔)
True, but the whole five Wizards vs. the One Ring plan went to hell a long time ago. - Victor Ganata from iPhone
