This lamp absorbs 150 times more CO2 than a tree

It’s still in the “so crazy it just might work” stage, but these microalgae-powered lamps, invented by French biochemist Pierre Calleja, could absorb a ton of carbon from the air every year. That’s as much as 150 to 200 trees. [x]


NEAT

YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND. This is ingenious.
The design is a light bulb surrounded by a glass casing. The glass is filled with (water based) media and microalgae. The top is permeable to gasses so that gas exchange can occur. All of the wiring is linked to the grid underground.
Since the light source is inside, it gets scattered and “dimmed” by the water and algae. This makes it less glaringly bright and scatters the light wider, which is good for a street light. It is not longer white light as well, which helps make it easier on the eyes while still providing light.
At the same time, it provides the light for photosynthesis in the algae, so they are continuously exchanging CO2 for O2, not just in the day. It also provides a source of heat, which helps keep the algae from going dormant during cold weather (as in the snowy picture above).
And notice how I did not specify permeability - that’s because NOx’s (NO and NO2) are also permeable and can be used as nitrogen sources to microalgae. In fact, algae are relatively low maintenance. As autotrophs, they don’t require super complex media, not does it really need to be changed/added to. (I’m actually fairly certain that there would still be algae in these tanks a year later; it may need to be cleaned or something, but there would be some living algae.)



and they’re so pretty too

This is super neat! Algae can and will grow in almost anything - in the lab I worked in last summer, we grew them in diluted Miracle Grow with submerged LEDs and they were very aggressive. The only concern I’d have it making sure they stay super super sterile because mold loves growing all over algae.

You will not find the warrior, the poet,
the philosopher, or the Christian by staring
into his eyes as if he were your mistress:
better fight beside him, read with him,
argue with him, pray with him.

"Diction-fairy"

I thought she was cosplaying as a book but diction-fairy is a million times better :D

I wonder what the folklore would be behind her.
Would she give good books to kids in exchange for bad books that she turns back into trees?

That’d be killer! :D

Appears out of nowhere to correct your grammar.
Leave an essay under your pillow and she’ll write suggestions in pretty script and colorful ink.

THIS IS WHAT RAD LITTLE GIRL LOOK LIKE.

Singin’ in the Rain (1952)

these men are such fundamentally different dancers but especially at slow GIF speed it’s clear how perfectly precise they were as a duo.

Donald O’Conner was actually nervous about this because he considered himself more of a hoofer than a dancer, and if you watch this number you can see he uses his upper body less than Gene Kelly. Also, they were both really worried that the other would turn the opposite direction from them, but as you can see, unlike Zoolander, they both turn left. :D
