vestassmall.jpg Wind Power has been hailed as the ecological saviour for the planet…now while many may think it’s the Wind that actually powers the wind turbines, we here at ShowMeSciFi.com know better.

On a recent trip through Copenhagen International Airport (CPH) we came across a wind power display from turbine vendor Vestas.

There was something a bit odd about it though and on a closer examination it become more obvious.

Check out the pic below of the (lego) worker in the model that runs the Turbine..

That’s right! Obi-wan Kenobi and The Force!

I ended up in Toronto today for a conference and it’s wednesday so you know i had to find a comic book store (new issue of Star Wars Legacy out today!! – i’ll review it tomorrow after i read).

Anyways..turns out Silver Snail – which is the biggest comic book store in downtown Toronto – does not do the board and bag thing – much like Midtown Comics which i blogged about a while back.

I guess BIG comic books stores figure they don’t have to do that…on the positive side though they charged US cover price for the comics – which means that it is actually 5 or 10 percent cheaper to buy comics in Toronto at Silver Snail than it is to buy the exact same comic book at Midtown Comics in NYC. Go figure.
