Tavelland River Table

Containing a tiny, perpetually moving river running through the center of it, the Tavelland River Table is a stress-defusing device that provides the gentle babble of water. (May not work so well if you have children as they'll probably try to do anything from drown themselves in it to fill it with Pot Noodles.) [GT]

Garden-in-a-bag gives the gift of fresh herbs

Garden_in_a_bag2

There's nothing like fresh herbs to perk up virtually any foodstuff, and the Garden-in-a-bag makes it easy to give them instead of cut, already-near-death flowers as a gift. It comes in Basil, Italian Parsley, Good Luck, Lavender, Alpine Strawberry and Mini-Tomato, and to get it going, you just mix the seed and bag contents, add water, and place under a window (or even desk lamp).

Food & Wine has a listing of sites to help you go locavore. Eating locavore involves the commitment to only consume sustainable food from within 150km of where you live (or, if that's infeasible, then organically produced food). Headwater site is Locavores.com, which gives you a plethora of tips on how to go more ethical with your food. [GT]

Presenting the Urine-Powered Battery

Scientists at the Institute of Bioengineering and Nanotechnology have developed a prototype battery that runs on urine. One drop of urine applied to a paper soaked in copper chloride solution (sandwiched between copper and magnesium strips) which caused the prototype to function like an AA battery for 90 days. While recharging it might be a bit distasteful, at least it's biodegradable. [GT]

UFO's Can Solve Climate Change, Says ex Defense Minister

Ufo_kensington

Ex-defense minister of Canada Paul Hellyer has recently declared that he believes the best solution to global warming is alien technology. He calls on all governments to immediately disclose any alien tech they've been hoarding, for the good of humanity. Hellyer, once a candidate for leadership of both the Liberal and Conservative parties respectively, says "We need to persuade governments to come clean on what they know. Some of us suspect they know quite a lot, and it might be enough to save our planet if applied quickly enough." [GT]
