Theres probably a firefox extension for everything. The technique is called “reverse image searching” or “search by image”. This feature is actually integrated into Chrome’s desktop and mobile browsers now. If all else fails, you can do it the old fashion way: open google image seadch in a new window and drag and drop images from webpages into the searchbar

Agreed. For all we know, fusion power could be completed in the next decade and we’ll be filling our cars up once a year with a gallon of tap water

3% is just an example how much power can be created from them, not a plan. And yeah, there’s several reasons they might not be good enough first and foremost that completely centering on one power source is bad. But we already do that now in the US. My whole state gets almost all of its power from coal which won’t be around forever and infrastructure around will have to be completely uprooted. And the dump may not be that expensive now, but it sure as hell is a complete drain on resources when we could be recycling more like European countries. Just because it’s cheap and convient doesn’t mean we should just shit all over our environment unless we want to end up a joke like China where people have to walk through cities in masks. And how much expensive is it than fossil fuels? Like I said, solar panels on roofs would cut down on the cost of cooling large buildings in addition to supplying power. It’s not a one size fits all solution but it’s sure as hell a lot more applicable than people realize

Well yeah. But you’d hardly be able to even see it on a map of the whole country. For comparison, the highest point of elevation in my state is the dump. If we can spare so much land for garbage, we can do the same for solar panels

On the opposite end of the spectrum, there are times when people can collect more energy than they need to power their house or building.Then can then sell the energy back to power companies which would probably cover the cost of any extra power needed. An infrastructure focused on one form of power isn’t good no matter what it is. Also what gecko said

I did my senior Capstone paper on nuclear power and found out the entire United States could be powered by a single field of solar panels positioned in a sunny state like New Mexico and it would only take up 3% of New Mexico’s land. People are under the misinformed idea that solar isn’t efficient enough to meet our needs and we need fancy projects like solar roads when all we need to do is put them roofs. Most large buildings have huge flat roofs that take in heat during the summer and instead of using solar power to both cool buildings and give it power, we pay to air-condition them. The zoo in my town has special parking areas that are covered by solar panels which keep cars cool and can power the whole zoo on a sunny day

Ha ha! Poor Phil Spencer. I get the impression he likes video games, but is stuck being the face of Xbox which is heavily under fire. I remember last year when he awkwardly stuttered while announcing the Xb1’s price at $500 and had to sit there with a dumb grin on his face while everyone sat there in disappointment

But how much bigger are they compared to hamster butts in other countries?

Commented on Duct Tape

Where I am (‘Murica) there’s gaffer tape and duct tape. I use gaffer tape at work for taping cables onto floors so people don’t trip over them. Like Christmas Pyro said, its weaker so it doesn’t leave marks and its much easier to tear than duct tape

I downvoted this thinking it was from the South Park show, not the game. Its hard to tell because its so pixilated. My bad

Commented on Mobile app games these days...

It’s because they think all us Android users are filthy pirates. Square Enix has released games on Android that stop working if it detects your phone is rooted. Because clearly, if you want administrator rights on your phone, you’re up to no good. They did the same thing with Deus Ex the Fall on iOS which wouldn’t let jail broken phones use weapons in the game.

It’s their loss. I can play snes, gba, and DS games on my phone anyway

Part of the problem is that people on welfare don’t have any better alternatives. You can continue to get welfare and have what you need to live, or you can go get a job at Walmart or McDonald’s and barely make enough to feed and house yourself and you’ve lost the benefits you had before. The whole point of having less social programs and less restrictions on businesses is so they can compete and their employees can share the benefits. Except there aren’t any businesses that want anything more than to become as rich as possible

Obviously, I’m not saying people should be selling their food stamps for drugs or that people should abuse welfare, but there’s other reasons as to why people don’t move out of it

Completely ridiculous. Some countries can get 100mb/s download speeds for $10 a month and our ISP’s want to complain that bandwidth for Netflix HD video is “too expensive”. And the FCC wants to make fast lanes instead of forcing the ISP’s to improve their infrastructure like they should have done a decade ago. We don’t rely on lazy monopolies to maintain our highways, roads, power-lines, and sewage why do it with our Internet?

At some point we decided that access to electricity was a human right that everyone deserves. Now we need to the same thing for the Internet

I find it funny that I commented on this article a year ago lamenting the fact that I had been beaten to posting the Yo Dawg image, while just yesterday I was talking to someone about my how my old high school was performing a play based on a movie about a play and my friend said “Yo Dawg” and it took me a few minutes to get the joke
