We went full cyberpunk at home and didn't even realize it. Holy shit.
I've been wanting to take this photo for a long time, and I finally was there at late enough that I could get the shot.
I learned a bunch from this one (and didn't have the lens I wanted to use for it 'cause I broke it ;~;) and will try it again for a better result some time in the near future. I feel this was a good proof of concept, though. ^^
FOSTA/SESTA Show more
From the Solarpunk Aesthetic tumblr:
Biotechnologist Marin Sawa and her University of London research group have created a proof-of-concept for printing solar cells onto paper using carbon nanotubes and cyanobacteria.
This technology is "[...] capable of generating a sustained electrical current both in the dark (as a ‘solar bio-battery’) and in response to light (as a ‘bio-solar-panel’) with potential applications in low-power devices."

I'm heading downtown today to register to vote in person; if I had a Washington driver's license or ID I could do it online. Between life changes and laws changing around the country, it's a good time to make sure that you're (still) registered to vote in the state you live in. :]

Anyone know good guides to eating vegetarian? I've been able to stick to this for a solid amount of time now, and I need to make sure I'm not wrecking my body in the process.
Hey #gardening Masto, do you have suggestions for drainage? I have some hanging containers left over from the landlord, and I just realized they have 0 drainage. Should I just drill holes in the bottom, or is there a better solution?
