Utah's AG

says he'll go to the Supreme Court, which would be Justice Sotomayer. I wish him luck there, he's gonna need it.

I'm surprised

it's that cheerful, actually. Given that I don't think the Chinese are going to go quietly into that good night, I'd expect a land grab and major war (possibly with more nukes now that the cat is out of the bag) to follow.

The science toys

are always the ones with 2 inches of dust on them as well. It is, as you said, very sad.

As a kid, I would have loved a solar powered teaching guide to basic circuitry. Instead, I had to learn it as an adult, in the gutter.

And dollar bills

Exactly what is a dollar bill "worth" anyway? OK, so it has the backing of the US Government...um, to do what, exactly?

By those lights, the tomatoes I traded for corn were a bubble. Those durned things will rot eventually, you know, and have no intrinsic value...

They'd hate me

There's a bank of solar chargers on southern and western windowsills, happily and cheaply recharging batteries of all types and styles.

In an additional kick in the butt to Western corporations, I built most of the chargers myself, many from scrap parts from things that were built poorly and broke.

I have no particular objection to them charging per kWh dumped onto the grid, as long as they do that to all power generation stations, including gas, hydro, oil and coal. Because last time I checked, I paid a hookup fee and transmission fee on my bill already.
