oopsboom: Harlee: "Harness power from the tides but it will probably steal the tides like wind turbines steal the wind and solar steals the light"

Hate to break it to subby, but for the tides and the wind, at least, the power that is generated has to come from somewhere. TANSTAAFL. Science! So that means that the wind is a little reduced in speed, and those ocean currents are a little reduced in flow. Not enough to actually matter (with only one or a few turbans installed), but still, technically, reduced, even if only by minuscule amounts.

i'm waiting for someone to claim that b/c tides are caused by gravity that pitting in tidal generators we will cause the moon to fall down and kill us all.

I farkING KNEW IT.

Everyone has solar in my area now and its been getting darker earlier every day. They keep telling me because it's winter now but those farkers have just been lying to me and capitalising the sun.

/if you'll excuse me I have to take a shiat on their solar panels

2fardownthread: Here is the thing. Farkers bash their heads into walls calling Japanese people stupid for not "doing x." I have to admit that I do not understand why Japan does not "do x" in a lot of cases. I assume that they have their reasons, and that I might not understand them.

This is a creepy thing about Japan. Isaac Asimov picked up on it in his Foundation series, and William Gibson. It is a theme that keeps coming up. I do not think it is sinister, but the Japanese are definitely up to something. Whether people think that is true or not really does not matter.
