How awesome is this: Apparently they're going to have solar-powered ferries in San Francisco Bay. (Thanks to BuboBlog correspondent Guy for tipping me off to this.) The big sail shown in the picture functions as a solar panel *and* uses the power of the wind to propel the ferry. Using wind to move a ship, that's INSANE.
I feel like there's a gay joke to be made involving a sun-powered ferry/fairy, but it's probably above my pay grade.
