so “stick it where the sun doesn’t [usually] shine” is good.

Sounds good. Hope they check for nanofibers in the water, and their long term effects.

it does sound good! especially if it can be scaled to residential use (unlikely, but a guy can dream). living on an island with no source of reliable fresh water (rain catchment isn’t consistently reliable as a main source for garden and house) and with things rapidly deteriorating, how long can we truly rely on fresh water piped in from the mainland?
I am by no means an “end times prepper”, but having a steady supply of filtered salt-free seawater would ease my mind a lot.

There are lots of people in the world who could use a working system now for drinking water, if it was cheap enough.

This might work, unlike those schemes which condense water out of the air, while ignoring thermodynamics. (Hey, I keep hoping someone will find a clever way to game the system, but there’s no getting around that you have to dispose of a fuckton of energy to condense water.)

So, if you asked a Latvian if a bear shits in the woods, they might not know. :man_shrugging:

It sounds like huge news, but then, while it’s a bigger leak than the Panama one was, that one seemed like a nothingburger. So, I’m not holding my breath this time around.

“ Musa, however, does not simply want to give the vehicle back to Russia. In September, reports emerged that he would only return Burya to Russia in exchange for the skull of the last Kazakh Khan, a man named Kenesary Kasymov. He has emerged as a hero in modern-day Kazakhstan for leading a 10-year struggle opposing the Russian Empire’s attempts to colonize the region during the 1840s. A rival ultimately beheaded Kenesary Kasymov in 1847 and sent his head to Russia.

Now, Musa wants the skull back, and he is willing to trade Burya for it. In an interview published Friday in a Russian language newspaper in Kazakhstan, Musa escalated his rhetoric. He said he would definitely not allow the shuttle to be returned to Russia for nothing, emphasizing the value of Burya as a bargaining chip by noting that it is the most valuable Russian artifact in Kazakhstan. He emphasized his determination, saying, “It is not water that flows in our veins, but blood, and it has the scent of wormwood.” Wormwood is a common plant in Kazakhstan and a key ingredient of absinthe.”

On one hand, this has a sort of cinematic grandeur to it. On the other hand, it’s reality and some assholes are fighting amongst themselves over stuff.

Either way, I like it!
