I have met some crazy people who some seriously dangerous stuff. These Frenchies are just as, if not more, crazy! There were parts of this movie I could not watch, this is some crazy stuff which is not for the faint hearted.

I noticed this tree last year at this time. At this time of the year, the Jacaranda trees in Joburg (where I live) produce really beautiful purple flowers. The whole of Joburg looks like it is covered in a purple cloth, it’s really pretty. I have never seen a Jacaranda tree produce a flower of any other color, except this one odd one in the park near my house. Different color flowers on a Jacaranda tree would be odd on it’s own, but this Jacaranda tree goes beyond that. This tree has 2 x branches that produce white flowers, while the main stem/branch produces the normal, purple colored Jacaranda flowers. That’s right, 1 tree, 2 different color flowers, depending on the branch they are on! Strange to say the least!
This is mindblowing, watch how researchers use 2 square meters of sunlight (as much as 3 people sunbathing would gather), focus it and MELT ROCKS! That’s right, melt rocks. Now if we can do this, why can’t we use this tech to generate power and much, much more.
Jem Stansfield travels to the Solar Furnace Research Facility in Southern France. He witnesses the incredible power generated by highly concentrated sunlight.
This guy is amazing. He has built himself a beautiful house for almost nothing. And now he lives in it comfortably with his wife & 2 children. You can get the full story on his website: http://www.simondale.net/house/family.htm
This guy wins ‘father of the year’ in my book!
