If you drop something, do you have a reflex to catch it with your foot?

Here is a nice map where you can look at nuclear plants in glowing green in a night time world. :flan_hacker:

You see which ones are closed and which ones are being built. You can see when they started and stopped and how many reactors.

Italy closed all their plants. Sometimes I see people on the internet complaining about Germany closing their plants, but those people never mention Italy.

Can the creator of a poll see who answered what?

Found typical fennec-fox music

Balearic Trance Mix

Fennec is a type of fox with very big ears. It uses the ears to cool itself as it lives in the hot part of Sahara.

Most fennecs have hearing damage caused by loud music. Soundwaves from Ibiza travel over the sea to Sahara. The fennec has evolved since the 1980s to love melodic Balearic trance music.

How time flies! Nine years ago, The Document Foundation was registered in Berlin as the non-profit home of LibreOffice. A huge thanks to all our members, contributors and supporters over the years โ€“ you've helped our projects achieve awesome things! ๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ‘

Why do the Germans leave the original sound on when they do voice over translations on TV news?

You know how it's in the background with a lower volume? It drives me crazy.

Instead of listening to the German translation I try really hard to hear the original English, but it's impossible. ๐Ÿ˜ 

They seem to have some issues with the law over there in USA. :flan_book:

Only 23 states allow the sale of kWh. In the rest they must charge per minute. :flan_facepalm:

Luckily it should be easy to change those laws - unless the fossil fuel lobby makes it difficult. ๐Ÿ™„

It's a good map on this website of the network and the kWh states.

Three charging networks:
1. Ionity - all EU carmakers together.
2. Tesla -
3. Electrify America - aha, what's this? Owned by Volkswagen.

Is #3 the main competitor to Tesla chargers in USA? Looks like it has built about 500 charging stations and Tesla is at 1000. (after a quick look at Wikipedia. Didn't check year or anything)

This so much better than the silly "flight shame".

They are going to make sustainable aviation fuel from:

โœณ๏ธ Wind (electricity)
โœณ๏ธ Water (H2)
โœณ๏ธ Air (CO2)

Twitter is testing community fact checking. The example Tweet in that article is almost too real.

Crazy how people these days go out and demonstrate for and against similar things. (virus is not real, 5G masts are bad, Santa is real and so on). Here's the example:

""Whales are not real. They are government funded surveillance robots meant to take over the oceans. If Humans (land mammals) can't drink sea water (just try it) how can whales or dolphins stay hydrated?"

We're looking forward to USA joining the Paris agreement again.

You know the Flintstones car, and you know paddle boats. ๐Ÿค”

What if we take parts from two electrical bicycles and build a car around them?

The perfect city car, not stone age, but close enough to feel like a cave person while driving. ๐Ÿฆด๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿค
