uses include:
- infecting brains with permaculture
- convincing folks that you are not crazy
- gift giving obligations
- stocking stuffer
- gambling distraction
- an hour or two of reading
- find the needle
- find the 26 hidden names

So there is a town that sits in a valley and gets zero direct sun for 84 days of the year. And now they have installed a 25 foot mirror to mend this problem.

Apparently, a computer controls the position of the mirror throughout the day. I think that the whole idea could have heaps of awesome use in alternative energy solar stuff.
