Good news

Sometimes from something bad comes something good. The energy crisis in Puerto Rico made people look for alternative energy sources. So the interest in solar energy was renewed: http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/puerto-rico-blackout-sparks-interest-in-solar-power-for-islands-electric-grid/article/2644601

The crisis in Puerto Rico is a direct result of weather conditions. And no, 'weather' is not to be confused with 'climate'. Here's an anology (click) to explain the difference.

And here's an actual scientist explaining the difference



But please feel free to believe your favourite news anchor or politician.

What is real?

What is real and why do we let others decide what's real for us?

When reading a novel or watching a movie our brain tells us the information we receive is real. But Gandalf never existed. Or did he? J.R.R. Tolkien made up the character of Gandalf. Or the character of Gandalf decided to choose J.R.R. Tolkien to be his creator. Either way: Gandalf is just a real as the notion that 'all foreigners are evil' or 'everyone who is unemployed is just too lazy to work. Except for me.'

Others may try but only you can decide for yourself what's real or not. A television network, your parents and your teacher can provide you with information. But it's up to you to decide what you do with it.

Did you ever let someone tell you true love does not exist? Perhaps that's what that person believes. But why should you believe it?

You create your own reality!

More fun

There are some amazing people out there! People who invent stuff to make life for others a bit more pleasurable as well as helping the planet a bit. Imagine what the world would be like if we all just did a little bit to help others and or the planet? Here some news on a new kind of solar panel:


And here just a guy who finds pleasure in his work and wants to share his feelings with others. He is known as 'The Tarmac Dancer':



A few days a week I help with the paperwork at a brewery and try to make the day more pleasurable for our clients and my co-workers. I also work part-time as an entertainer in nightclubs, festivals, company parties...

That's how I do my bit in making life on Earth a bit more enjoyable for others. And for myself.

What do you do to make this world more fun?
