wanna throw another one out there.. DUK (duke energy) has made a commitment to photovoltaic energy powered by perovskite. with good reason. been watching this a few months and through all the wild market dips and corrections its one of very few on my watchlist that are almost always green. almost.
also has no meme attention.
from some nerd named peter.

"(3) Perovskite

Right now, the “conversion efficiency” of the average solar panel—a measure of how much captured sunlight can be turned into electricity—hovers around 20-22%, at a cost of roughly $3 per watt.

Perovskite, a light-sensitive crystal and one of our newer new materials, has the potential to take that conversion efficiency much higher. Last year, scientists paired perovskite with silicon in a hybrid solar cell that achieved a new world record of 30% efficiency.

And perovskite has the potential to get that number up to 66%.

The ingredients that make up perovskite are both widely available and inexpensive to combine. What do all these factors add up to? Affordable solar energy for everyone."
Duke owns most of the land and warehouses around Indianapolis. I just saw them installing solar panels on a roof this morning when I drove by. Funny timing on your post, first time I’ve seen them do it.

Kind of hoping the market stays red today. Seems like we haven't had a real, significant down day in forever. We've had quite a few "big" drops (2%), but they always bounce back to close down maybe 0.5% or something.

COIN back above $300. Starting to be tempted to sell and grab the profits. Another part thinks there are lots of folks willing to push this thing back higher.

It ain't over for PLTR yet baby!


Palantir added in the company's earnings call that it was considering adding bitcoin to its balance sheet, saying the cryptocurrency was "definitely on the table." It also accepts bitcoin as a form of payment.

A part of me wants to start sniffing around TSLA and another part tells me it is still way overpriced.

l o l basically a pyramid scheme.
How is Onlyfans a pyramid scheme if there's no barrier to entry?

2 million would-be whores created an account, probably 80% of them posted between 0 and 3 photos and never logged in again.

The fact that 300 thots have become millionaires is astounding. In the traditional pornography model, I highly doubt 300 porn stars were millionaires within 1-2 years. By that math, 3000 thots are making ~150k a year.

Insane.

The spread between what "successful" thots make and what the average makes is insane;

You're missing the fucking point. "2 million creator accounts" is not "2 million active daily creators."

Those numbers don't mean what you think they mean.

They pay out to nearly 1/4 of those two million accounts;
