Took all my ladies out to a cabin for the weekend. Buchanan State Forest, Pennsylvania.

Imagine if the whole, beautifully paved world looked like this.
These are solar panels that, if placed in the place of roadways and other paving sites (parking lots, parks, etc) can produce more renewable energy than the entire country produces.
It’s currently in the prototype stage with amazing results. Plus, they can be used in all weather situations that will also make icy roads a thing of the past. Heating elements will melt any ice and snow that sits on top. Another thing, they come with LEDs inside so that you’ll have a better view of the road as you drive. All powered by solar energy.
I Fucking Love Science posted an article about it and it’s also raising money on indiegogo, which is disgustingly far from the goal. They have some pretty sweet gifts, including bumper stickers, a necklace containing pieces of the prototypes, and an entire working prototype of the plates.
BONUS: The prototypes were made of 10% recycled plastic AND can still handle the heaviest trucks. Imagine what the final product could do.
I urge everyone to at least reblog and spread the message so that hopefully this reaches the goal at May 31st. Projects like this hit me right in the heart because of my passion for renewable energy, which is what I hope to deal with once I’m done with my Engineering degree. I would gladly work on this project if I could, but for now I’m going to settle with donating as much as I can and spreading the word as far as possible.
So, signal boost! <3
JESUS CHRIST PLEASE SIGNAL BOOST THIS!!! IT WOULD BE A LIFESAVER FOR THIS COUNTRY’S ENERGY CONSUMPTION
Do it, DO IT!!!!
Sick ass Ray Bans. I’ve never paid more than $10.00 for a pair of sunglasses. One time I’ve paid $35.00 for sunglasses and they lasted a week and they were gone off the face of the planet. Every $10.00 pair I’ve managed to drop in the bottom of a lake and they’ve somehow miraculously ended up back in my sock drawer. These I couldn’t pass up, for $150.00 wish me luck.
Kicked this ol’girls ass in a run through the woods today.
