This is a Google Voice transcription of a message that was left for me. The original message was in German. :-)

Nice! I am very happy about this and hope that it will last:

Germany Stands Up For Science – Maintains 40% by 2020 Emissions Reductions Pledge
Some nations are already backpeddling on greenhouse gas reduction commitments in the wake of Copenhagen, but not Germany. According to Reuters the world’s sixth largest carbon emitter will be standing by its target of 40% emission reductions by 2020, regardless of what other nations do.

Very good sentence indeed. Chinese chopsticks, as opposed to Japanese ones, are not pointy, so where and how was this chopstick implanted??? An idea for the 7th Inspector Chen Cao novel?

Marginal Revolution: Very good sentences
“A Shanghai hospital cultivated and reintroduced human brain tissue in 2002 after taking a sample from the end of a chopstick implanted in a patient’s frontal lobe following a disagreement at a restaurant.”

Those are a lot of zeros:

Why China’s Economy Will Grow to $123 Trillion by 2040 – By Robert Fogel | Foreign Policy
$123,000,000,000,000 –
China’s estimated economy by the year 2040. Be warned.

I’d love to try this. What a rush!

kolelinia
Kolelinia is a city fly attempt. We are born to move, this makes us alive. The transport is not only a transport, it has to be an experience! The quality of this process reflects directly on the quality of our life. Is it possible to achieve a completely new level of transportation with minimum resources?
Kolelinia is a concept for riding our own bikes on a steel wire, a new type of bicycle-lanes…

The first truly beautiful humidifier.

Mast Humidifier by Shin Okada | Spoon & Tamago
Meet Mast, an exquisite creation of pure Hinoki (Japanese Cypress), recently designed by Shin Okada and crafted by Masuya Koubou. Known for its high-quality timber, rot-resistant qualities and lemony scent, the thinly sliced Hinoki mast absorbs water from the hull and diffuses it, and its intrinsic aroma, into the room. And it goes without saying, but no electricity needed.

    We are never supposed to jab anything with a chopstick.

    I shared the info of Kolelina with a group that is restoring
    a 1884 Train Trustle to become a biking/walking trail in our City. They found this concept very interesting. Thanks!
