  1. Lake methane could power entire nation

    Rwanda

    Lake Kivu produces three seperate gasses, including methane. It is hoped that this high gas content can be tapped and provide electricity for most of Rwanda. This would also limit tree killing.

    The gas reserve should be enough to supply the country's electricity needs for 400 years. Using it will mean far less logging since Rwanda currently gets 90 per cent of its energy from wood burning. And tapping the gas will reduce the risk of a massive gas explosion killing people who live near the lake.

  2. What am I talking about?

    Hooray, I am now twenty-four years of age. I had a nice party over the weekend, and I successfully pushed back a trip to the grocery store with leftovers. Thanks to everyone who attended.

    Today at work I was handed a coupon for Six Flags Great Adventure. Apparently they have a new ride, Superman-Ultimate Flight TM. The ride consists of you lying down. Although I imagine you're not perfectly horizontal. I only mention this becuase at Six Flags New England they have a sit down Superman coaster, and a Batman ride nearby where you lay down. I've been wanting them to make a ride like this for years. Though I imagine my weak constitution may preclude me from riding it. I've had problems on fast coasters blacking out.
