this post is essentially just a press release for the company in question, but I still love the idea. "The system is 'fully charged' when the crane has created a tower of concrete blocks around it. The total energy that can be stored in the tower is 20 megawatt-hours (MWh), enough to power 2,000 Swiss homes for a whole day." https://qz.com/1355672/stacking-concrete-blocks-is-a-surprisingly-efficient-way-to-store-energy/
human energy technologies, a medley
(1) set living things on fire
(2) feed some living things to other living things and make them pull and lift stuff
(3) put a wheel in the way of moving wind or water
(4) set the remains of distant dead ancestors on fire
(5) put a lot of dangerous rocks together in one place until they get more dangerous and really hot
(6) use the sun to lift and stack heavy things, and then drop them later
Last night, I agreed to watch a show my son wanted me to see if he'd watch the first episode of #TheGoodPlace. Worried he wouldn't like it at all. We insisted on going to bed after episode 6, but he insisted we had to get up and watch the rest of season 1 over breakfast. 😆

@Julia sorry, Scooter is the kind of techno that uncultured plebs consume along with their cheap store brand beer from Lidl while they're decked out in cheap polyester cloth bearing the logos of various local football clubs.
I however, am a well-educated bougeoise connaisseur of the art form, and as such I am much more drawn to the mild-mannered, non-threatening stylings of a certain DJ Bobo.
