This is a music video for RÃ¶yksoppâ€™s Remind Me, and does a nice job of showing just how interconnected and complex our modern world is. Watching it gave me a feeling for just how complicated our life style has become, how many things depend on each other and just how fragile our system of living is.
Annies (makers of the best mac and cheese EVER!!) have come out with a very funny way of letting you know about some of the nasty stuff that goes into your food. Their Mouth Revolution video is hilarious. Check it out below.
And also check out the outtakes.
Interested in learning more about what you can do to help keep these nasty things out of the food you eat? See the Mouthifesto.
I have not started the long and difficult task of picking who I want to support for the next presidential race. Here is what Hillary thinks about renewable energy.
I agree with just about everything she says. But as they say the devil is in the details, without more info I cant say for sure her plan would work. I worry about her tax breaks for ethanol, as I think biofuel might not be the best way to go, but who knows if they start making ethanol out of wood chips it might not be so bad.
Lets hope all the other candidates come out and say how they stand on these issues in a similar straight forward way.
I am speechless, really. I have no idea what is going on here, but wow.
Interesting contraption, highlighted on the Hippy Gourmet. The tie-dye shirts, the bush stuff, and the crazy way these guys talk will feed all sorts of negative hippy stereotypes, but people like this are some of the people that were vital in starting the renewable energy movement (along with a lot of scientists, inventors, and straight laced business people). Like any trend it starts with a fringe group, and if it has merit it moves towards the center and the masses pick it up.
I found the machine pretty interesting, I wonder if legs are more efficient than wheels.
Update: the guy in the video, Robert Schneeveis
Here is an hour long clip of crazy ass Michael Crichton on the Charlie Rose Show and his many books deriding science. People just can’t seem to get enough of his stuff. Think what you want about Crichton, but remember he is in the business of selling books, and not necessarily telling the truth. I agree with some of the things he talks about, but disagree very much with some other things he says. Make sure you check out the 22nd minute when he starts talking about global warming…
