Random awesome thought.

I think it's really awesome that cats' whiskers grow to the width of the cat.

I think it's also awesome that cats will ignore what their whiskers are telling them and get their heads stuck in cups.

Their curiosity is awesome too. They have to investigate every new thing in their little worlds. Like the time we were fixing the kitchen sink and had a bucket of the old water that had been trapped in the pipes for days and smelled really bad. Of course our cat had to see what was in the bucket so he stuck his head in and took a big whiff. He quickly backed away and tried to run off but vomited before he could get too far. :lol:

Well of course they do, thats the whole point of whiskers. :rolleyes:
Yes I know, but it's still awesome in its design and simplicity.

And if you cut the whiskers off a cat it will bump into things.

Works with old ladies too! :p

Apologize if this is a repost. Plans for "Solar City Tower" in Rio de Janeiro for the 2016 games. Supposed to be some kind of waterfall that provides energy etc.

So the power needed to get the water that high will be lower than the power gained from the water falling afterwards? Yeah... right...

None anymore...
According to the plans the waterfall won't be operational all the time: the water will be pumped up into reservoirs during the day, using the excess energy generated by the solar panels. During the night the water is then routed through turbines to generate electricity.
