This is no game, Soldier

quote [ The devices would be used to assist Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE, by stocking “a state-of-the-art tactical training facility” in whose eerie design details we perhaps glimpse what immigration enforcement operations of the near future will entail. ]

And you're using my money for what?

You'd Better Sit Down for This

quote [ Designed by Austrian firm EOOS for Laufen, the Save! toilet separates urine from other waste, creating an opportunity to produce eco-friendly fertilizer and save waterways from algal blooms. ]

...and you thought you were just taking a piss.

These Millennials Got New Roommates. They’re Nuns.

quote [ Sarah Jane Bradley was an unmarried, “spiritual but not religious” professional in her early 30s, with a rowdy group of friends and a start-up when she moved out of her communal house and into a convent. ]

I have been working with nuns in the midwest; I have been struck by their knowledge, skill and dedication. Like the article says, their average age is 80.

Going UP!

quote [ A concept of science fiction, it first referred to as a Space Elevator by Konstantin Tsiolkovsky in 1895. The LiftPort Group has been working to develop a real Earth Elevator since 2003. Find out what it is, what has been done, and how much is still left to do (hint: a lot). The Earth Elevator project is on standby pending advancements in material science. ]

I've kind of followed this for a while. It was supposed to be ready in 2018. I was all set to go. (Hint: a million miles of cable weighs a lot).

So you want to build a model of Prague...

quote [ When rummaging though her extensive library, Aleksandra Wagner discovered a pattern book of the old city of Prague. Similar to a dressmaker’s pattern book, it is meant to be cut up, very precisely, and assembled into a three-dimensional paper model. ]

i've got some free time today...

Do you need a license for a driverless car?

quote [ Google has revealed footage of a self-driving vehicle with no steering wheel or pedals, announcing that it expects to roll out its first pilot scheme on public roads in "the next couple of years".

A video of the first non-Google employees trying out one of the tech giant's self-driving car prototypes shows a vehicle with no steering wheel, accelerator or brake pedal, which is operated by pushing a button. ]

I think the best thing about google mobile is the potential for NO PARKING!

I can only imagine what Google will do with all your travel information; more tracking of your movements. Still..... I really need that car.

Glasgow School of Art Burns

quote [ Students and teachers have been describing the moment a devastating fire broke out at the A-listed Glasgow School of Art.

Eyewitnesses said the blaze started when a projector exploded in the basement of the Charles Rennie Mackintosh building just before 12:30.

Firefighters have been tackling the flames and at least five appliances have been called to the scene.

Many pupils are due to submit final projects in the coming days, but fear their work has been engulfed by the fire. ]

One of my favorite architects (and artists).

How Things Work

quote [ Vladimir Gvozdeff is an artist from (if I?m not mistaken) Slovenia, who works in both two and three dimensional media, often combining them in the same work. ]

I posted a few entries from this website on the old SE. They are not news, but we need to fill the air here with more stuff. So says me. Plus... it's art.
