What I Should Have Said by k.p.k
The Window Socket offers a neat way to harness solar energy and use it as a plug socket. So far we have seen solutions that act as a solar battery backup, but none as a direct plug-in. Simple in design, the plug just attaches to any window and does its job intuitively.

THE TORAJO AND THEIR FUNERAL RITUAL
The Torajo are an indigenous group of people that live in Indonesia. For them a funeral is a celebration. There are no tears shed, rather it’s like a going away party. The Torajo work extremely hard to accumulate wealth during their lives. This money then goes to the funeral ceremony.
The funeral ceremony could be held weeks or even months after someone has died. A body is not buried until all the funds have been raised. Until the funeral ceremony is held, the deceased person is not considered dead but rather ill or asleep. They are embalmed and stored in the same house as their family until the ceremony.
The ceremony begins when pigs & buffalo’s are slaughtered because it’s believed the spirit of the dead will live peacefully after. The body is buried on the 11th day.
WALK OF THE DEAD
Every year in August, a ritual called Ma’Nene (The Ceremony of Cleaning Corpses) takes place in which the bodies of the deceased are exhumed to be washed, groomed and dressed in new clothes. The mummies are then walked around the village by following a path of straight lines.
Following these straight lines is maybe the most important part of the ceremony. According to the myth, these lines are connected with a spiritual entity with supernatural power. As this entity only move in straight lines, the soul of the deceased body must follow the same path.
This is 100% not an exaggeration

SAVE THE WORLD’S OLDEST FILM SET! Universal Studios’ Stage 28 has a lot of memories. Parts of Dracula, Torn Curtain, and The Sting were filmed there, to name only a few. Built for the silent Phantom of the Opera (1925), the original Paris opera sets are still there. Some say the soundstage is haunted—but those ghosts might be homeless soon.
Because the word is that Universal plans to tear down this landmark of Hollywood history.
I don’t like to ask favors of you lovely people who follow me, but please, please, please do this. Together you are mighty enough to reach the goal.
That’s what this life is about, loving the true you. And letting go of all else
