Ramen!
Have we reached the stage where we believe, at least subconsciously that they're always lying.


Then assume that if most experts are saying that the idea is just no good that they must be lying.
And only the heroic figures standing against those lying experts must be telling the truth?


It's a very strange thought process, but the subconscious thinks in strange ways.

If only government had a way to hire some scientists to advise on that concept before spending the money...
Þetta minnismerki er til vitnis um að við vitum hvað er að gerast og hvað þarf að gera. Aðeins þú veist hvort við gerðum eitthvað.

SolaRoad in the Netherlands created that $5 million solar bike lane.
It cost 100X of rooftop solar, and broke on the first day of a bit of frost :



Still, the Dutch government gave them another grant, so they could build something more substantial.
They did.
They built a "solar bus lane".
An it broke within a week :

When are we going to learn that solar panels in a road are just a VERY bad idea ?
This is our planet. This is our time.
Let's not waste either.
