It's about fucking time.

As long as we've got idiots designing glass courthouses to put in downtown fucking Phoenix, we may as well start getting something out of them.

glass courthouses

The best thing about that link is that that courthouse has a poorly functioning swamp cooler.

Bees deployed to protect Japanese birds

There's a lot to love about this article, but I'm especially fond of
Quote
Conservationists hope bees will repel the crows, based on the insects' tendency to attack anything dark-colored that approaches their hives.

Fucking racist bees.

We're probably going to need a sustainability thread.

On that note:
MIT opens new 'window' on solar energy
Related FAQ.
MIT spin-off plans to manufacture cheap, efficient solar cells

Fun stuff.

Warp Engine Would Travel Faster Than Light

Essentially using an amount of energy equal to the size of Jupiter to open to the 11th dimension behind a spaceship would push it faster than the speed of light.  Cool stuff, and several millenia off at the least.  But what caught my attention was

The tricky part is that the ship wouldn't actually move; space itself would move underneath the stationary spacecraft.

Science is apparently copying Futurama.

New material curves light, makes wearer invisible.  I've seen both James Bond and Tony Stark use similar tech; science fact follows science fiction once again.

I just wonder if it will be truly invisible or just mostly invisible with motion still obviously noticeable to someone looking at it like in videogames.

I wonder if you'll become visible if someone bumps into you or you accidentally get hit by a minigun bullet

Oh goody.  You know I felt much better about the world a few minutes ago when I thought that cloaking technology was bullshit.

I don't worry too much about invisible carbon molecules.

don't you mean invisible to red light carbon molecules?  It will be a long time, if ever, before something could be made negatively refractive to the entire visible spectrum.

At this point I'm positive that anything NASA says could happen, will happen.  And at the worst possible time.

...

NASA hasn't said anything about birth control lately, have they?
