Just For Poops and Giggles

Ask me anything   Moopla - Matter Out Of Place. Hoopla - a bustle of excitement. I'm Jen. Your undercover girl next door. I'm happy-go-lucky and simple. I love Jesus, my sisters, old music and flowers among other things. I'm nice, and I like nice people. Professional mariner with a love for the fine arts and food. Various thoughts and visuals of interest and random tidbits of tacit knowledge here. Living a life of moop and hoopla. Fin.

Fuck. All. Other. Photos.

Whoa. I just did a little research on this guy. Fact: he played in the NFL in the 80s, became an aerospace research engineer immediately thereafter, and then went into fucking space 20 years later. Where’s that sports movie, Hollywood?

Solar energy that doesn’t block the view

A team of researchers at Michigan State University has developed a new type of solar concentrator that when placed over a window creates solar energy while allowing people to actually see through the window. It is called a transparent luminescent solar concentrator and can be used on buildings, cell phones and any other device that has a clear surface. And, according to Richard Lunt of MSU’s College of Engineering, the key word is “transparent.”

"At the box office, people began asking "Is this the show with the little cross-eyed girl?" I had become the star of the chorus, much to the disgust of my fellow dancers. "Monkey", they called me, and did what they could to make my life backstage miserable. I finally took to dressing in the bathroom. At least no one bothered me there! One of the dancers even tripped me up one night as we were making our entrance, but I managed to do such a comical nose dive that I received more applause than ever. They didn’t try that again!”

This is a truly amazing story of twin sisters separated at birth who discovered each other at age 25 through social media (see Facebook message above in which Anais reached out to Samantha for the first time). One lives in London and the other in L.A. and the two have shared a close bond since meeting. They recently took a trip together to their birthplace, Seoul, Korea, and now they’re hoping to make a film together about their story. Check out their kickstarter campaign here. Story via buzzfeed.
