This farm is absolutely amazing. They have 10,000 fish and 500 yards of compost and produce 1 MILLION pounds of Food per year. This has to be the way of the future if we are going to feed the population of Earth as we grow.
The beauty about this type of system is that it could also be utilized on marginal land as well.

When I ran across this video, I thought it was funny enough to post here. Maybe I have a warped sense of humour, but I did think this was just a little funny.

The History of the Internet is an animated video made using Picol Icons (blog.picol.org). The video outlines the inventions and steps taken since 1957 to now and how they helped to shape the internet that we have now in 2009.

This is such a clever animation, the author must have a good imagination.

Large Hadron Collider part 1
It’s finally happening, they are testing out the particle exelerator and we are all waiting with baited breath to see if we are still all going to be here tomorrow. No need to worry if you read a quote from CNET news as shown below.
Remember the fear that the Trinity test of the first atomic bomb in 1945 might ignite the atmosphere? The Large Hadron Collider, a massive particle accelerator 17 miles in circumference that will begin operation Wednesday, comes with its own apocalyptic possibility: teensy black holes with gravitational appetites voracious enough to swallow the Earth.
Images: Where particles, physics theories collide
But you can breathe easy, because some scientists believe that worry is just as baseless as the A-bomb’s flaming atmosphere.

Linux enters the argument and PC and Mac have a meltdown.

Another in the long line of Mac vs PC video’s, this one I think is quite ironic in that it’s so true.

Well I guess India’s colorful cotton, particularly with the Paisley design, made a lot of hippies happy… yes I admit it, I had Paisley shirts, and as much as it embarrasses me… I wore flared pants too, but it gets much worse still, I had flared cords. My only relief comes from the fact that Flares are making a come back… and just to get back a little more esteem, I’ll tell Gen Y don’t do it! Knowing they’ll take no notice of me.
Gandhi supported the Indian cotton industry, in fact from memory such as it is (injury related), I believe he used that support to start his peaceful revolution against the British Empire, or to be more correct, the British Royal families East India Company business interests, which included Opium.
As far as the cotton industry is concerned, personally I find it offensive that foreign (American I believe) owned companies are growing cotton and Rice in Australia, and are I believe largely responsible for polluting what is arguably Australia’s most important river… the upside I guess is that their water uses is sooo excessive, that luckily the once Mighty Murry has almost run dry, saving us from being poisoned by the chemicals and pesticides used in the production of the cotton and rice crops. For those amongst you that don’t get Irony (most Americans) that was not just sarcasm but ironic sarcasm.
The cure of course is that we should swap Cotton for Hemp, which is a stronger and I believe better cloth, can be used to make high quality paper (no more cutting down trees for paper), insulation and building materials etc. and it will grow almost anywhere, requires less water, no chemicals, it actually improves the soil, and the seeds are a far better food source than Rice.
But they (the Americans) wont like that, it’s apparently OK to sell cigarettes which kill millions, but not Hemp (Pot) that has never in recorded history killed a single person… again for those that don’t get Irony, that’s yet another example. And what has all that to do with India… bugger all, I just thought I’d get it off my chest.

I spent a relative fortune on ‘Rechargeable’ batteries, which are worse than useless because not only do they not fully charge, but when charged, they discharged themselves within a couple of weeks… I should have used the ‘bunny’ batteries instead. Anyway, here’s another alternative I’ll experiment with.
