    paws4thot @ 1643: OK, I've read #1617 and #1627 again, and still can't find any mention of electricity. What now? An actual application perhaps, such as the Scarborough cliff lift funiculars? The actual electrical generation is the same as any...

    Damian @ 1622: I’m getting déjà vous, because I may have asked this question before and been misunderstood as expressing a view. I wonder about how hard these seals are. I suspect that what is really required is a degree...

    Scott Sanford @ 1618: "The big secret, buried 3 links deep, that that they have a big weight in a tube, with water under it. That pressurises the water and they then pump it in and out to store energy."...

    Heteromeles @ 1589: What, you don't like me retrolling? https://www.bookdepository.com/Memory-Craft-Lynne-Kelly/9781760633059 It's actually a fun book if you want a new hobby. IF you can remember where you left it....

    Robert Prior @ 1579: "I'm seeing the weapons used being referred to as 'Drones' rather than, say, 'Cruise Missiles' is there any substantive difference that justifies the distinction?" If I was paranoid* I'd say it's setting the stage to clamp...

    silburnl @ 1573: On the oil terminal attacks in the KSA, I'm seeing the weapons used being referred to as 'Drones' rather than, say, 'Cruise Missiles' is there any substantive difference that justifies the distinction? Or is this just that...

    David L @ 1548: "Trump just doesn't do systematic. Trump's animosity to Obama seems more visceral, based in Trump's deep seated racism," It totally animates his base. If it didn't I'm convinced he could care less. Trump would still be...

    Charlie Stross @ 1508: "While I expect they'd look funny at anyone wanting to buy 500 units at once" No, that part's really easy! As long as you've got some sneak. You can even get other folks to pay for...

    Greg Tingey @ 1488: JBS @ 1473THAT is so depressing.Now then, what Obama-era careful policies ( plural ) has the Trump maladministration ignored that will lead to catastrophe?[ And I don't mean Climate Change, either - I think we can...

    David L @ 1481: I think "Tail of the Dragon" featured in the 1958 Robert Mitchum film "Thunder Road" Now I almost want to watch that almost comical movie again just to see what you're talking about. The setting for...

    _Moz_ @ 1478: "I bet they could make the whole electronics package for guidance out of a Raspberry Pi breadboard." That sounds expensive and failure prone. For less money you can just buy one of the many, many drone control...

    gasdive @ 1467: The oil refineries I've been to, stunk of mercaptan all the time anyway. Is that what makes oil wells stink like raw sewage?...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    _Moz_ @ 1462: "you can believe in any god... But you can't IMPOSE your beliefs" But many religions are mutually incompatible, and I think most of them require or prefer things that impose on others. Doesn't fuckin' matter! I don't...

    Robert van der Heide @ 1452: Isn’t that where they did the location shooting for the Roadrunner cartoons? I guess many of the drawings for Roadrunner cartoons drew upon Monument Valley. I think "Tail of the Dragon" featured in the...

    Nojay @ 1378: If I was looking at building a drone/missile of the sort the Houthis seem to have used I think I'd go for a propellor-driven design using something like a motorbike engine as the power plant. They're a...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    Bill Arnold @ 1377:JReynolds @ 1374TPTB seem to think that the Houthis couldn't possibly do this on their own. The powers that be couldn't (or claimed they couldn't) imagine somebody flying commercial jets into the World Trade Center buildings. They...

    Graydon @ 1368: It's a question of what kind of successor state you want to live in; the people actually in politics out of a sense of public service are inherently deeply committed to the status quo. They can't ask...

    Elderly Cynic @ 1438: "Today's ethical question: Which is more improper? To thrust your penis into the hand of a young woman during a dormitory party, or to thrust your penis into a pig's head? Answers on the back of...

    David L @ 1311: North bound it was a nice drive. But I'd not want to do it at night. Now the drive from Mesa Verdi to about 2/3s of the way to Monument Valley was done at night. And...

    Charlie Stross @ 1291: South of SF, Highway 1 is picturesque but okay. North of SF … don't do it if you're on a schedule and especially don't EVER do it in a Lincoln Town Car. (I made that mistake....

    Greg Tingey @ 1225: Flow BatteriesIv'e been hearing they are coming "Real Soon Now" for the past 10 years at least - are they like fusion power, then? I don't see how they could be. Isn't fusion power always 50...

    Charlie Stross @ 1265: To get the scale thing across to people, you need to explain that what Americans call "suburbia" is "open countryside" in Europe. If they've even heard of exurbs, say "it's people who live 50km from the...

    Pigeon @ 1245: It was called the HS2300. Standard Chevette body with a Ventora 2.3 litre slant four in it. Went like buggery. There was an R version which was even faster. Never sold very many of them though. I've...

    Charlie Stross @ 1235: "why would anyone go to Boston?" Because Boston and New York are the main bastions of civilization in the US? (Ducks and runs …) Har! You think that because you've never been to North Carolina. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yx_LHSrjsCg...

    _Moz_ @ 1226: D'yareckon this is why some of the nuke kids here don't like pumped hydro? Bit hard to argue that we're gunna run outa water, especially coz pumped hydro can use seawater and the nuke kids haven't got...

    whitroth @ 1208: I see - of the US car company engineering training. Not an exaggeration. In the mid-eighties, waiting for the *second* transmission rebuilt on my Chevette (pronounced SHOVE IT), the guy helping his buddy at the trans shop...

    whitroth @ 1204: Had a friend who lived with his folks in Killeen, right next to Ft. Hood. I considered it *really* unlikely that their house would ever be burgled... he was an engineer in the SCA, and his full-sized...

    David L @ 1157: The problem with the the process that JBS mentioned is that specific group, NCWARN, isn't trying to "fix" or "make the plant" safer. Their entire goal is to stop it from being built or never start...

    David L @ 1115: "San Francisco Bay Area is not nearly as universally warm and sunny as the tourist advertisements would like you to believe, either. [/understatement]" What's that phrase? "The coldest winter I ever spent was an August in...
