    Earth's Black Box Climate Warning Box for Future Generations to Study.

    I'm 58 yrs old and have been hearing about the 100% provable scientific planetary meltdown OR the freezing nuclear winter for 50 years. It is the exact same argument today it was then and we're still here. My first person observation of the "Argument" over the years is that it is a straw man...

    Meet the Xenobots, the "living robots" that can reproduce!

    Maybe they can program them to eat cancer and then die? But more likely it will just create a worse kind of cancer. Nature should not be trifled with as we have seen recently....

    Maybe Chuck and Brandon can fix the Straw Bot Boogeyman like they fixed the rest of th deteriorating economy. When will some of you realize the govt inserting its ham fists into anything does nothing but create a larger problem.

    Ford and Purdue develop new EV charging cables

    I don't see a need to carry supercaps on vehicle. I'm thinking a supercapacitor "box" the size of a refrigerator in a persons garage able to store enough electrons to feed one or two vehicles completely off the grid if necessary. The charging of the supercap could be offset to off peak hours and...

    Ford and Purdue develop new EV charging cables

    The only way i see this EV stuff scaling up successfully is that each "Charging Station" has a giant supercapacitor inside that can dump into a car quickly then SLOWLY recharge in off peak hours. Your backyard solar panels and windmills could also be supplemental. What irks me most in this...

    Bitcoin all time high

    Detroit ...is it an anomaly that places generationally trapped by a powerful political gang don't seem to be doing very well? My mother could not give her Detroit house away when she finally left. But lived in it for 30+ years for next to nothing so no real loss of value. In other localities not...

    Bitcoin all time high

    Complex "Money" arguments are being made that can obfuscate core fundamental truths. Understanding fundamentals helps with making financial decisions without need to understand larger picture. National monetary systems are tools of control and under constant manipulation. Crypto's are a...

    Ford Mustang Mach E Leak: Mustang goes Electric

    Put an electric on any track with equivalent chassis ICE it will lose unless you tweak the rules to adjust. The battery weight is the whole ballgame. Part of what drew me to love racing was the idea of a weak human being controlling a visceral beastly fire spitting monster and forcing it to...

    Ford Mustang Mach E Leak: Mustang goes Electric

    Society should not need to be pushed coerced or lied to to make E vehicles happen. The reason we lost the horses for machines was they did do everything better faster and cheaper. Unfortunately the same is not true for this change trying to be forced upon US under a "No Time To Think" imminent...

    Ford Mustang Mach E Leak: Mustang goes Electric

    Forget what you think you know for a second. An ICE vehicle pulls into a local station and refuels in minutes and that infrastructure already exists. Now picture the street you live on has all E-Vehicles. Each and every house will need their electric service doubled. Can you even comprehend how...

    Waymo Cars Queue to Navigate a Dead End on a San Francisco Street

    After they cancel the internal combustion engine and E-TCO goes thru the roof you will not own your own transportation unless you email ends with .gov. Youll go on your phone app, punch in the destination and moments later a state owned Johnny cab will show up. Before departure your social score...

    Waymo Cars Queue to Navigate a Dead End on a San Francisco Street

    I work literally less than a mile from the Waymo vehicle facility in AZ. I see the cars and also semi trucks doing loops all the time. IMO they found an abberation in the wild so theyre mapping around it and refining their algos.

    Ford Mustang Mach E Leak: Mustang goes Electric

    A kid i went to school with his house had a power pole with large lines going down the block right outside his bedroom window. He got a rare form of cancer as a teenager and had his leg amputated above the knee. Years later a work buddys parent found their lakeside dream home and moved in. I saw...

    Ford Mustang Mach E Leak: Mustang goes Electric

    Demonstrably false? ...really please demonstrate we are waiting. How about refuting real points made? I say the economics of hauling around 10 times the weight of fuel in batteries has an actual cost to it. Instead the typical answer is to fall back to the "Settled Science" without even one word...

    You dont know that you dont know. the energy in ~8 lb container of gasoline is equivelent to about 800lbs of batteries. The routinely ignored inconvenient truth of E is that the economic/tech stack ups are massive compared to chemical energy for given amount of work output. the physics of...

    this guy is puting water on pc parts how does it still work??

    I used to wash a lot of filthy industrial analog pcb's in tap water with dish detergent and dry on hot sidewaly in the sun but VLSI electronics are a different animal. Wash a glass in water, If you see water spots after it dries then that is not good water to clean pcb's in. The white powdery...

    Useful components for GPU repair to keep in stock

    When i used to fix amps and such I always populated my spare parts bins as i went along. Order parts as you need them and get extras once you see common part. The old NTE catalogs were good for finding common cross-reference parts.

    Bitcoin mining operation in Finger Lakes sparks local concerns

    It is a slippery slope when we have any group questioning the value to the community of another group that legally purchased the electricity. Once that becomes OK the next domino is that there are air breathers that dont add any value to the community and their air should be stopped. Crypto...

    Bitcoin value cut in half as cryptocurrencies tumble in weekend slide 05-24-2021

    Bitcoin value cut in half as cryptocurrencies tumble in weekend slide 05-24-2021

    "Money" is all bogus and only worth the TRUST people have in it as a store of value. Monetary notes issued by organized groups are subject to manipulation. Manipulation that inflates the money supply is same as stealing VALUE directly from your bank account. What crypto does is tie the units of...
