The thing I find most curios is the complete absence of low-gay-high-god states. It looks as if someone put a piece of paper to cover those up.

Researchers develop paint-on solar cells. :cool:

I could paint my bike and trailer, and it could charge the battery while I was riding, parked at the shops, on the way home… :love:

"How is it that hardly any major religion has looked at science and concluded, 'This is better than we thought! The Universe is much bigger than our prophets said, grander, more subtle, more elegant. God must be even greater than we dreamed'? Instead they say, 'No, no, no! My god is a little god, and I want him to stay that way.'" - Carl Sagan

"To doubt everything or to believe everything are two equally convenient solutions; both dispense with the necessity of reflection." - Henri Poincaré

I don't understand the Kevin Bacon link...even though it made me laugh.

It is based on six degrees of separation: you can get from any actor in any film to Kevin Bacon in six moves or less. I get Kevin Bacon in four:

Roy Hunter was in the video for A Century of Fakers by Belle and Sebastian with Sandy Nelson.
Sandy Nelson was in Braveheart with Mel Gibson.
Mel Gibson was in Forever Young with Jamie Lee Curtis.
Jamie Lee Curtis was in Queens Logic with Kevin Bacon.

There is an online cheat version that mines IMDB.com for links, but it takes some of the fun out of it.
