I'm not sure I'd want to do this in the living room yet but it's an interesting discovery.

We may need it after Obama is finished with our economy.

You sleep, Obama will set a 6PM curfew.

Have you seen the satellite night shots of North Korea? That's the plan!

Is not the plastic in soda bottles made to degrade over time, especially in sunlight? Seems to me in a matter of months you'd be recreating the pots and pans scene from Unforgiven the next time it rained.

I saw some light gathering devices that reflected light down a mirrored tube to light a house. It works on a thick roof. Good idea on a sunny day but expensive.

Perhaps it’s real purpose isn’t so much as a light source but as a source of solar energy tax credit for homeowners.
