Amos Quito: FTA: "The potential societal benefits are staggering," said Paul Weiss, Ph.D., editor-in-chief of ACS Nano.

"They include more energy-efficient distillation of alcohol," ...

Say no more.

I'm in.

But do you really want to ingest these nano particle? I bet the can't filter them all out.

Think about what would happen when you go out in the sunlight. You'll boil, or even worse, sparkle.

Smoking GNU: How the HELL do you get a Pre-Teen Milf?

Use Martian years. 1 martian year =1.8 earth years.

10 years old is legal. Many Milfs would be pre-teens.

Using Jovian years, EVERYONE would be pre-teen.

Just don't use Mercurial years. "My girlfriend just turned 126 and now all she talks about is kids!"

quatchi: ...metalic nanoparticles illuminated by light can be brought to 212 degrees Fahrenheit, the boiling point of water, much faster than water.

Wait, what?

Using new nanoparticle technology to enhance already existent steam powered tech makes it work more efficiently?

That actually *is* interesting.

Make it so.

If we toss hots rocks in the water, the water around the rocks will get REALLY hot and some of it will turn to steam.
/yes, I realize that higher surface area of the nano-particles = more steam, but still
