I'm from the school where you'd think more wind for a wind turbine would just mean more energy. Well, as this video proves, that is not always the case.

Poor turbine, just out there trying to produce some green energy, and next thing you know "BA-DOOOSH!" it's in a million pieces and generating no energy whatsoever. Sad, but fun to watch -- like a narcoleptic wiener dog (video of him after the jump).
UPDATE: Narcoleptic wiener dog video updated to much cooler one, thanks to Super Frank, my brother.
Seen here trying to steal my soul with her stare, a Sony employee demonstrates a new "biological" battery capable of turning cellulose into glucose into energy efficiently enough to power an MP3 player. Me? I'm still cool recharging mine via USB, but what do I know? (SPOILER... / Continue →

Faced with the problem of long charge times for electric vehicles vs. the immediacy of pumping gas, lab-coated, taped-glasses scientists at MIT have developed an electric power "goo" that can be pumped into electric cars for an immediate charge. Me? Two boner pills and a beer... / Continue →
