Problem is the money generated from the electricity in NY would go right to National Grid who would manage to waste every penny. ><

The Funeral home reminds me of a story i heard out of Dallas, where a woman got a set of vases for christmas and one had a urn id tag stamped on the bottom.

That would creap me right out that i got a used urn for christmas....

I don't know, I never read that book... it was during the grades where I switched schools.

Speaking of efficiency, mit is making an exercise bike that will power your laptop. I always thought it would be nice to exercise while I surf the web or watch a movie.

Build a gym in which you pay people to exercise on the machines, which in turn add energy to the grid. Instant economic recovery and reduction in obesity!

My mom replaced a CFL with incandescent because the lamp in question is in the coldest corner.

In my town it's become the sign of high class establishments to have a slowly, slowly revolving door powered by electricity. Possibly to prevent people from running recklessly. Using a door to generate power seems like a much better idea.
