Giant Snake-Shaped Generators Could Capture Wave Power

While I would certainly agree that "bird smacking" isn't that much of a problem, large windmills are moving pretty damned fast. The ones I've personally seen seem to move at 10 RPM. For a windmill with 120' blades that means the tips of the blades are traveling at over 85 MPH or nearly 125 feet a second (120' * 2 * 3.14 / 6). That's pretty much moving.

This morning I had big plans to make some waffles so I went to Google to find a recipe. I was lazy so I only searched for the word "waffles". Imagine my amusement to see the top result a John Kerry web site. Not just any Kerry web site but the campaigns official one. Search URL is http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&lr=&q=waffles&b tnG=Search In case it has changed here is a screen shot of my results http://home.hubris.net/owenc/temp/waffles.png Not sure if that is a political statement or not ;-]"
