Claude is expected to weigh up to 30 pounds when he's full grown. I wonder how much Old Bay Seasoning that thing would need?
I used to like fluorescent lights and then I changed my mind.Read the rest here.
As the years passed, I found more and more folks like me, and more and more reasons to be uncomfortable with fluorescent lights. When some people see that I don't use them, they try to tell me about how great they are. When I try to explain why I prefer incandescent, I nearly always get a dismissive wave - signaling that I am clearly a fool and whatever tripe I am about to utter is clearly not worth their time. This article represents a glimpse into that tripe.
If you leave all of the lightbulbs in your house on 24/7, then replacing all of the incandescent light bulbs in your house with CFL light bulbs will save you money. For people that typically leave lights off when not in use, it turns out that incandescent light is cheaper than fluorescent light - the exact opposite of what we have been told all these years.
With a little knowledge, you can stop wasting money on CFLs. Both in the short term and the long term. The long term stuff includes tax issues and the toxicity tie-in which leads to superfund cleanups and medical bills.
In a nutshell:
With these three things alone, I will make a rock solid case of how incandescent lights are cheaper than CFL. But there's more:
- CFLs do not last as long as is claimed
- Many CFLs provide 42% less light than claimed
- CFLs put out 20% to 30% less light as they get older
- CFLs are subsidized to make them appear cheaper
- the toxicity of a CFL is downplayed
- there are better ways to save electricity than fiddling with bulb type
- There are incandescent bulbs that are claimed to last longer than fluorescents
- There are new incandescents coming out that give off more light per watt

The Road to REVOLution is a sidescrolling platformer action/adventure game, reminiscent of console classics like Super Mario Brothers and Sonic the Hedgehog.I'll definitely be checking it out.
You play the role of Ron Paul and make your way across all 50 states collecting Gold (sound money) and Delegates.
The game is full of original artwork and gameplay mechanics. Indie Game Development at its finest, the game is designed, programmed, conceived, and produced by me, D.S. Williams.
The game is built in HTML5, and will hopefully be converted into apps for i* and android platforms.
Collect Delegates to ensure your seat as the President, collect Gold Coins to unlock branches of the Federal Reserve where you defeat bosses and progress your quest to end the Federal Reserve.
The game will be free to play in your browser. I hope to develop mobile versions of the game as well.
- 50+ Levels designed around each of the United States
- 13 Boss Fights representing each branch of the Federal Reserve
- Challenging puzzle-platformer element. There's no 'beating up monsters until they're dead' aspect. You must guide the baddies through each level.
- original soundtrack
- bonus unlockable characters
I dissected all of Hitchcock's Rear Window and stiched it back together in After Effects. I stabilized all the shots with camera movement in them. Since everything was filmed from pretty much the same angle I was able to match them into a single panoramic view of the entire backyard without any greater distortions. The order of events stays true to the movie's plot.
