    If you've ever blistered your bare feet on a hot road you know that asphalt absorbs the sun's energy. A Dutch company is now siphoning heat from roads and parking lots to heat homes and offices.

    Pretty cool, we really need to start exploiting the renewable power from the sun a lot more, technically we would just need to find a unpopulated sun drenched desert area and we would be set to fuel the whole worlds energy usage till the end of days.

    Sounds good. I was in Jamaica this year and made the stupid mistake of trying to get to the beach bar with no footwear. Jamaicans where pissing themselves laughing at the crazy white English man trying to alternatively balance on one leg whilst screaming for his wife to bring his shoes.:oops:
