Taken from here.

I have been reading every news release on the incident since the earthquake. There has not been one single (!) report that was accurate and free of errors (and part of that problem is also a weakness in the Japanese crisis communication). By “not free of errors” I do not refer to tendentious anti-nuclear journalism – that is quite normal these days. By “not free of errors” I mean blatant errors regarding physics and natural law, as well as gross misinterpretation of facts, due to an obvious lack of fundamental and basic understanding of the way nuclear reactors are build and operated. I have read a 3 page report on CNN where every single paragraph contained an error.

Noticed yesterday that playing Wagner (specifically the Die Walkure suite) consumes the battery of my Apple Macbook much more rapidly than playing Beethoven (specifically the 6th).

Both these mp3’s are the same bit rate, same compression, and nothing changed on the laptop between playing the two suites. I played the suites for the same length of time twice and did not even move the laptop thinking that perhaps the temperature might be a factor.

Next step is to run different suites of both composers and see if the effect can be reproduced.
