Nice interactive info-graphic on water use in aagriculture
California's crippling drought has prompted conservation efforts, such as replacing grass lawns and minding how long you leave the tap water running. But what about the food on your plate? Agriculture uses 80% of California's water supply, and producing what you eat can require a surprising amount of water.

A look at our own history to remind us of the past that is documented vs the past some choose to imagine.
 
~ The first U.S. penny touts science, not God ~ [Why Evolution Is True] :: The interesting part is the motto on the coin: “Liberty Parent of Science & Industry”. Now we all know that the “In God We Trust” motto is a relatively recent innovation, but I was surprised to find (although I shouldn’t have been) that the founders rated science as one of the boons of liberty. And nary a mention of the creator. Just another little nail in the coffin of “America founded as a Christian nation.” ::  #atheism
Reader Will called my attention to a new piece in CNN News describing the auction of the first U.S. one cent coin for a cool 1.2 million dollars. Now that's a pretty penny! It's the famous "Birch C...

I, too, want this technology to succeed and to do so soon. It is amazing tech and can mitigate so much frustration, anger, and many hazards.

Generally, this article's conclusion is something that does not surprise me. This quote, however, bothers me a great deal:  "Fiction is not just a simulator of a social experience, it is a social experience". It's a statement I can not comfortably concur with because the author is referencing direct, personal interaction. In the sense of "social interaction" a work of fiction is a simulation, though in the broadest sense of "being about a society" I suppose a work of fiction is about a society.
More proof that readers of fiction are a very special breed.

Wish the author had put some more precise dates about these cars in the post. Still 65 mph in the 19th century was startlingly fast.
This is the story of two separate teams building dueling electric cars that propelled one team to take the title of World’s Fastest Car.
