We are meeting at New World Brewery, on 1313 East 18th Street, at 8pm.

We don't have much of an agenda this time. It's just a meet and greet kinda thing. So just show up and drink a beer with us.

I'll be there.

Cool Waves

OK Paradisiacs, here's the "wave" of the future:

World's First Commercial Wave Farm
Hydrokinetic power can avoid much of the "intermittency" problem of wind and solar (i.e., that the power source isn't always available) as well as the NIMBY "visual pollution" argument brought up by wind opponents. It's further back along the cost and development curve than wind and solar, but it's moving along swiftly.
Latest example: the Scottish firm Ocean Power Delivery -- the current leader in hydrokinetic technology -- is set to build the world's first commercial wave farm off of Portugal. When deployed in 2006, the three wave power generation units will provide 2.25 megawatts to 1,500 homes. And if all goes well with the initial build, OPD is set to deliver an additional 30 units, for a total of 20 megawatts of generation.

Why can't we be this cool?

What's Your Worldview?

OK Paradisiacs. Here's a new self-revealing quiz for you:

What is Your World View?

Here's mine:

You scored as Cultural Creative. Cultural Creatives are probably the newest group to enter this realm. You are a modern thinker who tends to shy away from organized religion but still feels as if there is something greater than ourselves. You are very spiritual, even if you are not religious. Life has a meaning outside of the rational.

New Image

OK. So, I changed the template last night. I wanted something that was more recreational & more therapeutic. So, if you wanted to, you could sue me...or, we could go for a beer.

I Would Like To Coin An Acronym

I would like to coin an acronym - PURPL. PURPL stands for Pure Unadulterated Raving Pathological Lie. Just imagine. When you're watching CNN and some politician comes on spouting the usual crap, you could yell PURPL!!! PURPL!!! and maybe you could throw a purple nerf ball at the TV or something. Better than stress balls! Or at one of those news conferences, whenever the President or Scott McClellan says something totally off the wall, the whole Washington press corps could yell PURPL!!! in unison. But they probably couldn't throw any purple nerf balls. Still, it would be an improvement.

Who? Me?

I found this test over at Easter Lemming:

Are you a Republican?

When I took the test this was my score:

I am:
"You're a damn Commie! Where's Tailgunner Joe when we need him?"

Are You A Republican?
