I've strapped a solar panel....TO MY ASS!

My ass...IS ON THE INTERNET!

What's Turkish Sheepherd's Fark log-in?  I want to sponsor him.

Trust me, it's purely sexual.

Hey, has anyone said ass yet?

Turkish shepherds need solar powered donkeys to access the internet?

To watch porn?

Cos that'd be funny to me, needing to connect to a hot sweaty ass in order to look at other people's hot sweaty asses.

Admittedly my sense of humor is highly suspect.

Put down the crack pipe, eco-tards. Solar-powered donkeys are a pipe dream. WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO WHEN IT'S CLOUDY AND YOUR DONKEY WON'T START, MORAN?

Better than how explosive-equipped donkeys are attempting to change the lives of IDF soldiers.

You owe me a keyboard AND a cookie.

A solar equipped llama is the only thing that keeps me connected to Fark (and the rest of the internet).

They could always go old school and have the donkey walk in circles pushing a capstan which turns a electrical generator with an appropriate gearbox to increase the rotational speed.

Maybe they want to hire kinky Kelly...

Wouldn't it be more efficient to forgo the ass and just burn it's food to drive a turbine?
 
2014-07-23 04:45:29 PM  
I'll take one, please. Solar power would be far cheaper than constantly having to feed dat ass.

How do you think they power the detonators?
 
2014-07-23 04:48:53 PM  
And if I want solar power anything, the power company gets all pissy about me wanting to disconnect. I'm moving to the middle east just as soon as things settle down.

Do you plan to use the donkey for other things, like carrying your camp or pulling a cart? Might as well put it to good use when you aren't utilizing it as transportation. And a shepherd's donkey probably grazes. You'd have to collect food/fuel to burn it. The donkey collects its own food.

Also, you can fark it.

Good point. I was recently reading  The Windup Girl, a book about a post fossil fuel world and they use elephant like beasts that way, I gave up on the rest of the book at this point.

Problem solved. That'll be $100,000 for consulting, IDF. You're welcome.

Pretty much everybody will beat the US in solar.

Likely. Lately I've been getting bombarded with an advertisement on Facebook urging me to 
"Support Coal!". A couple "friends" shared articles supporting coal recently. Yes, apparently plenty of ordinary Americans think coal needs advocates.

I told you we were smart enough to make solar panels.

When Lenin said "Communism equals Soviet power plus rural electrification", I'm not sure this is what he had in mind.

thats because solar is awesome. Eff all the haters.

Off-grid and portable low-power are applicable uses for solar. Your suburban home, not so much.

Yeah, but they won't work. They have to be willing to support solar.

SAw this on Reddit. 5-7 Kilowatts? How powerful is the sun out there anyway? For a panel like that to generate that kind of power, the sun has to be powerful enough for Crematoria.
One of the biggest reason the Middle East willhave widespread solar, Many utilities in the US lobby to prevent it, preferring to hold citizens in a choke hold.
