Lighted Cement

Weirdest thing, I had a dream about this product before I knew it existed, esp aside, this stands to change the world radically. Light emitting cement would reduce power consumption, improve esthetics, and make for really cool looking sci-fi city scapes. The question is how inexpensive is it to manufacture?

Snack Gaming

Josh sent me this pic, showing m&ms as Go pieces. (A marketing move that still puzzles me.) Which makes me think...more games should be edible. The popularity of junkfood hound in room vending machines, while disturbing in a "erosion of society/matrix plug in the back of your head" way, makes me think about online gaming connected to one of these machines or the nearest Laundry-mat, gas station, or super market. Imagine vending machines spitting out hi-fructose caffinated "rewards" to winning gamers compliments of "insert food and beverage mega corp" here. Hmmmnn...yeah I can see it. How about you?
