    I didn't mean to say that cooking books are not useful, but that's not 'reading' as much as following some instructions on one specific page. You don't read the book from cover to cover. In the same...

    I downloaded the free sample. Unfortunately the book is not Kindle friendly. It looks like pages were scanned, so they are displayed like a PDF file with tiny characters. I cannot adjust the foot...

    Did you learn anything interesting from it? (I mean after years of reading papers of genetic research)

    I have read quite a few books in the list (already 12 in the top 30), but overall I was not impressed. Fiction usually feels like a waste of time to me. There are so many things to learn. Why bother...

    You don't seem to realise that the more people are going to use air conditioning, the hotter the Earth is going to be. It's a vicious cycle.

    Maybe part of the problem is that a majority of...
  12. Is it time for Americans to stop using their air conditioners?

    No less than 90% of American homes have air conditioning. In Europe it's under 1% (except in Italy and Spain where its a bit over 10%). It's not because the United States has a hotter climate. It's...

    I think that this survey gives the measure of people's open-mindedness vs narrow-mindedness. People in Western Europe are less jingoistic and more open-minded about other cultures because:

  20. eBussy: a new revolutionary modulable electric vehicle

    It's hard to describe what eBussy is in one word. It's a minibus, but also mini motorhome, a pickup truck and a van, all rolled into one. The eBussy is an astonishing electric vehicle based on a...
