Oh, on a side note: Biodiesel is great and good for the Earth, but don't use it for your helicopter!

I'm better again, Mary, tank you... just some stomach bug I guess....
The stuff in the bowl is called Kombucha and it's a symbiosis between a bacteria and yeast. You put it into green tea with tons of sugar and after six days the Kombucha converts most of the sugar into something else, and I'm not even exactly sure what. The result smells slightly sweet, is bubbly and has health benefits.... which, I don't know. I just got the thing passed on from someone else who was sick of keeping it alive... so I keep doing it and I guess after a while it will die...

And thanks @sunshinecity

Right now I live very close to Munich.

@Jonathan Riverwalker: This is not my garden, no. I pass this garden every day on my way home from work. The guy who owns it is doing a wonderful job growing many things there, and he really uses his greenhouse to the full. Can we both pretend this garden is ours?

The submarine is a lot of fun, but it's more for calm waters. It's unbelievable, but when there are just a few waves in a lake the water in general isn't very calm, either, and the little thing then has some trouble to keep moving... but it's fun! Totally!
