    Why that many Mangos? Unless it’s a super tree you wouldn’t get many, and certainly not 300 varieties

    There are actually over 1000 different varieties of mango and 350 different varieties that are grown commercially worldwide. Believe it or not! Would love to see that tree.

    Wow. Each variety of mango bud-grafted onto one tree. We usually see apple trees grafted with three to five varieties.

    In the mid 20th century methane from sewerage was used to fuel engines that generated electricity. Not sure why the technology was abandoned. Maybe the exhaust was worst than the methane mix. But now;

    “In this suburb of Los Angeles, FuelCell Energy Inc. is operating the world’s first “tri-generation” plant that converts sewage into electrical power for an industrial facility and renewable hydrogen for transportation fuel." A 2014 article in SciAmi. The company is still active……

    Sounds much more complex than just burning the methane in a marine V16 engine.

    How are the utilities [water, sewer, power, etc.] connected to the rotating house?

    The word is not “fermented”, but the meaning was clear.

    The house is basically a 24 hour clock.

    I designed a similar rotating foundation when I was in my teens, though my structure was circular, not L-shaped.

    Fermented fruit and they waste it on electricity? I hope they drank their fill first.

    If the house can rotate, how are the utilities connected?

    If I lived in that L-shaped house, it would be facing west in the morning, not east.

    I know if you get a fresh orange peel and squeeze it in front of a lit match, the juice will flame up. I saw that when I was a kid.

    Did I miss something? That looks like the Sunflower House in Spain, which does not rotate like the one in Verona.
