Nano photosynthesis ? "Solar energy is seen by many people as the future in sustainable energy .." Here's something benign, in nanolayers - How it works.
  • Um...
  • That's an Aussie company, so in the northern hemisphere the nanytes will swirl in the opposite direction due to the lack of centrifugal acceleration up here and so what seems benign will actually be malignant. Just so you noes.
  • Ah, yes. I am familiar with this Coriolis defect of which you speak.
  • How does this product compare to embroidered facelifts for overall positive energy renewal?
  • *peers over fish tick's shoulder, reviews case notes*
  • That's nothin. Have you seen the bugs they are growing in Germany?
  • Huh? *shreds case notes, unable to find a shred of damning evidence, despite Deep Suspicions*
  • You're just jealous because we got no ticks on our fish and it's cheap to keep our women looking good. AND we got nano-dribblies for power! I wonder if you could use that screenprint nano-layer whatsit as an art form, or maybe a new-wave suntan booth?
  • AND we got nano-dribblies for power! The majority of freeways that I have traveled on (in the States) have what, at least 80 feet of "unused" space? (30' on each side, 20' in the middle). Then there are the mostly rural interstates, I-5, I-40, I-80, that stretch for enormous distances with nothing on either side of them. A quick calculation of I-5 between Bakersfield and Redding of 400 miles and 100 feet of solar collection space and assuming the energy collection rate of Solar One shows a possible collection of 673 MW, or about 1/3 one unit of San Onofre. All of this is nonsense since it assumes a linear swath of land can equal mirrors pointing to a tower. But.... I really would love to see that space used for solar energy collection, and possibly even the freeway surface itself. And if nano-dribblies are what that requires, then call me objectively-pro-nano-dribbly! And if a nano-dribbly-tee can power my iPod, cellphone, and my loogie gun then all would be sweet.
  • what i'd like is to be able to do photosynthesis in my body. That way, i can vegetate and get stronger by the minute.
