For how many kilowatts though?
The price of solar panels is getting down to about $1/watt (peak) right now, and you get about 1-2 kWh per kW (peak) per day production depending on your latitude and climate.
After last year's Sample Sale i was very excited to go to this year's. It was $10 promptly asked for at the door, and no real $1 table.
I have tried two more brands of contacts, both hydrogel and toric, with little success. The first pair had the right eye not so bad, but the left was blurry. Ultimately, my appointment was for Sunday, and when i was late i received a phone call. Oops! I guess i've been relying on those reminder calls a bit too much.
And then when you got past the nipples you stopped the download because there wasn't a point any longer.
By then, I'd usually lost patience and just turned to my vast collection of ASCII porn stored on a tape drive.
Those were the days......
The 'normal' level of vitamin D has also crept upwards over the years.
I don't mind e-books. But i refuse to pay so much for something that is not legally absolutely and completely mine. Even then, it's always a question if i want to pay for something not tangible.
And, books don't run out of power, can easily be flipped, and so on.
The other fact is that pure gas cars are getting really good milage.
My Chevy Cruze is averaging over 33 mpg for me.
LOL. My 2002 Prius got 45 mpg (not to mention much, much lower emissions).
33 mpg is in the same class as "can't be bothered". If you want to crow, you need to get more than 50 mpg, son.
I love books. Well, i love reading them. There are people who do love books, such as an erstwhile coworker that told me she cried when they were lost or damaged, or something like that. She convincingly conveyed to me that she was emotionally attached to her books. She also no longer works here.
It's unclear that they 'aren't doing anything illegal'. Even the New York Stock Exchange itself was fined after the flash crash.
- Is holding the world record of 574,8 km/h on conventioanl rail since 2007.
- Is linking all major cities in France and some abroad (Belgium, Germany, Netherlands, UK).
- Has commercial speeds of 280km/h for the oldest ones, to 320km/h for the current generation.
- Costs a fraction of the price of the maglev.
But, YMMV. And by all means go Japan !
Whether it is ethical or not, I suspect that the people involved will shortly be making a 'voluntary payment,' probably 'without admitting wrongdoing' after the regulators have asked pointed questions comparing the actions of their bot against those of the relevant standards.
