Madagascan Moon Moth aka Comet Moth #nature

via reddit >

"A Madagascan moon moth lives for not more than five or six days. It does not feed, but saps from from the supplies built up as caterpillar before. Even if it would like to eat, there is no chance to do so: Through the centuries, the comet moth’s trunk has shriveled and can’t be used anymore." source >

Kermode Bear, also known as the "Spirit Bear" #nature

via reddit >

"This rare White Bear is actually a Black Bear! Scientists are actively studying this rare genetic trait that is possibly due to a recessive gene, or could be due to a result of a concentration of gene in a given area. The Spirit Bear is not an albino.
Scientists estimate there are 1,200 black and white Kermode bears in the coast area that stretches from around the northern tip of Vancouver Island northwards to the Alaska panhandle. On Gribbell Island, up to 30 per cent of the bears can be white while on the larger Princess Royal Island, about 10 per cent have the white coat. Like most bears the Spirit Bear weighs about half a pound at birth, growing to 150-300 pounds when fully grown. The Kermode’s size averages between 4 and 6 feet. Height measured from paw to shoulders averages between 2 ½ and 3 feet.
The beautiful Spirit Bear will eat almost anything. Including you! However, there have been no reports of them eating people.
Being omnivores, they mostly live on fish and berries, but also eat deer and moose fawns, carrion, insects, plants, fruits, nuts, mushrooms and nuts. They depend on salmon runs in the fall to fatten themselves up for the long winter hibernation, where they can go without food for up to 7 months" - 42sthansr

Yes, it's photo-manipulated. His modus operandi is heavy post-processing on photos he takes himself. If you want to see more of his work, take a look at his page on Redbubble:" - Foo_Manchu"

also reddit thread >

I didn't have time to post all the store tips here. 
Just so you know, I usually post to this blog every morning before work with whatever I find interesting on Reddit... I thought that was obvious. 

Anyway - Have a great day!

Solar Panel Windmills for Super Double Energy Power! It's real. I looked it up.

But they aren't perfect yet....


"on a particularly hot day the turbines would generate ‘lethal’ solar rays that could set buildings on fire if concentrated."

Oh shit! Maybe they should matte the surface of the panels and/or run it more horizontally?
...or better yet - fuck this whole idea and just put solar panels all over the ground around them.

Teach people how to make and maintain these things and create some jobs, with a purpose...

Make personal home versions of this shit people can buy.
It's not marketed to us right now.

Too busy being all tied into stupid outdated stubborn dirty methods.

I don't get it.
Oh well anyway.

I overheard this and thought it was a funny idea.

Where did I overhear it?

Independence Day, Boston #photography

"The photo was taken from the MIT sailing pavilion on the Cambridge side of the skyline. I was sitting on a dock next to the water. In the mean time, my GoPro at the upper floor was taking a timelapse of the entire event. You can find the video of the timelapse at this link:
