Other plants actually emit ultrasound signals. Humans can't hear them, but a forest might be quite noisy for a bat.

Plants which are in distress (such as being dry or damaged) emit sounds more frequently. Combined with the chemical signals they can send each other, both through the air and through the soil, it seems like plants are a lot more talkative than we might realise!

It turns out, some plants can hear! Their flowers can hear the sound of insects buzzing around, and they react by sweetening their nectar to make pollination more tempting.

I need to be productive today.

Free idea: I want a productivity app where I can input a to-do list and when I check items off I earn tokens in which I can “buy” cats and things for some cat world. Like Neko Atsume, but a productivity app.

"Do your part" energy conservation plans, like turning lights off when you leave the room, are great for your energy bill, but their job as part of "lowering carbon footprints" is to deflect from the big corporations that actually use the vast majority of the power.

For example, the average US stand-alone home uses ~11,000 kWh per year.

The VERY MOST EFFICIENT roadside LED billboard uses ~61,000 kWh per year. That number rises to ~323,000 kWh at the top end.
