Electricity itself is a natural phenomena, but as regular AC/DC currency it becomes a commoddity. But Green Electricity is a strange thing. You pay more money for your electricity which the providers say they will invest in environmental friendly energy like windenergy and waterpower. So the 'green' addition to the product is purely virtual.

There's no such thing as 'green electricity'. There's just ways of generating an electric current by changing magnetic fields, as described by Faraday's law..which happen to not use fossil fuels. That's all. No fancy advertising, no need for hype. It's physics, folks! And it's good, since our society runs on electricity.

Why bother grammar mistakes if it's only real estate you are selling?

Should men be able to give birth to children?


Koert van Mensvoort: Is the artificial womb frankenstein-like symbol of (male) engineers trying to steal the magical womb from women? Or… is it a feminist project and needed to reach through equality between the sexes? I personally lean towards the latter. To me it feels like progress if a girl can tell a guy to carry the womb for a change.
