She's got the legs and knows how to use them!

No kidding!

Leggy Lady!

I dont know how I came across this, the wonders of the interwebs...well it turns out a Kiwi company make boats with legs. We heard of amphibian, but they usually look like cars. This is a boat that grows and retracts legs as needed to launch or when done.

I have no affiliation with this company, just impressed, also check out the youtube videos, fun to watch too!

Homemade houseboat crossed the Atlantic

An interesting story really. A houseboat crossed from Newfoundland Canada to Ireland.

Rough looking, but strong enough

There are a lot more details here and here.

The question is whether the builder Rick Small was in it. No one's sure. But his creation was strong enough to make it across, pretty amazing, really.

I suspect we'll find out soon.

Before the flood - quick review

Leonardo DiCaprio took three years to complete this documentary called Before the flood about the alrady ongoing climate change crisis.

It is actually quite positive as it shows the various problems and also, as opposed to doom and gloom also shows positive. Best example is when he visits Elon Musk's Giga factory and is told that 100 of these would provide all the power needed for the planet. And it's and his reaction is "That's it". It is doable!

You can watch it for free on YouTube and other services.

Thanks Leonardo!
