Yeah another off-topic special: "Genius invention combats water evaporation". Doesn't exactly sound like a Sideburn blog worthy news but check out the video below of 96,000,000 black plastic balls bouncing down into an LA reservoir and tell me you are not a little bit turned on.
Ok maybe not as captivating as Magali Noël singing Rififi but still. If you are into black plastic balls as much as me you can read more about them in the LA Times. Something with two wheels and an engine will be along shortly. BP
