  • Commented on Fossil fuels are dead (and here's why)
    Given the number of personal who never deploy outside of the home country, and a potential number of positions in at least some of the branches that even if they deploy it will be in a way that shouldn't interfere...

    Yes. This is NEWS like it might be news to people in the US that Bozo's Brexit isn't working out very well. The civil war in the R's started in 2016. As it escalates another step a story like this...

    Sorry for that mangled grammar....
  • Commented on Invisible Sun: Themes and Nightmares
    I know. It just hard for the way you live and that I live (not the same but still) are hard to apply to the general population....
  • Commented on Invisible Sun: Themes and Nightmares
    I don't clean such now and never did inside the house. But I just had to replace the utility room sink as my wife doesn't want me to use for for what I want to use it for. She wants...

    Thieves and streaming services. So who should pay to make such things? And is Charlie a thief for expected people to pay for his books? As to watching Foundation the cinematography is great. So watch it on a large screen...

    Foundation is out. First 30 minutes look good....
  • Commented on Invisible Sun: Themes and Nightmares
    I never really understood what is supposed to be the advantage of the two smaller drums over the nested drum style popular in the U.S.? No transmission. I had one I bought used back around 81 and it was very...

    and not shitting in the kitchen sink. The problem with that is toddlers. After raising some you discover that you will be putting shit down the sink, wash, tub drains off and one for a while. Maybe reasonably diluted but...

    I'm going to exit this aspect of the debate. Your expertise in designing washing machines that have sold in the millions is way more than mine as a user who occasional does his own repair of this and similar things....
  • Commented on Invisible Sun: Themes and Nightmares
    That picture is of the standard US based washer sold for 50 years or more in the US. Now the energy efficient ones don't have the center agitator bus cycle the inner drum back and forth. Plus they have an...

    120l/d/p That's what we were asked to due during a severe (for us) drought 20 years ago. The water agency said that would cut the average usage by half or more. I looked at my bill and did the math...

    I'm not sure if you can see this video, It is restricted to PBS Passport accounts. I'm guessing you have one. Like me. I wasn't signed in on this computer which is why I saw the restriction. Of course I...

    Without doing research for you. Yes the motor is 1/2 on the back of the drum and 1/2 mounted to the frame. Which requires reasonable alignment of parts to work. And as to needing semiconductors to have an automatic cycle......

    Around 1953, when my sister was 3, my father came home and got fed up fighting the frozen diapers/nappies hanging on the back porch. They were there because the kitchen and other areas inside were full of hanging diapers. My...

    The one I had was bought around 82 or so and was no where near new condition when I bought it. Maybe 10 to 20 years old. So new in the 60s or 70s. And I've never seen one in...
  • Commented on Invisible Sun: Themes and Nightmares
    and I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of the machines are of US manufacture. I don't know about laundromats in particular but in general half or most washing machines in the US are made in countries on the western...

    I had one of those for a few years I found when I moved to Pittsburgh as a bachelor. Hooked the hose up to the kitchen sink faucet. I had forgotten how much fun that thing was....

    I think you fail to appreciate how little land there is here to build houses on! Nope. That was my point. :) Of course we can talk about NYC apartments in older buildings. What people saw on the TV show...

    A man punched a police horse at an anti-lockdown protest in Sydney a few weeks ago. Life imitating art? Mongo...

    The problem was that to make them spin when they were powered by an induction motor was a bit tricky. Either you didn't bother or you had this fabulous assemblage of belts and pulleys and friction drive wheels and levers...
  • Commented on Invisible Sun: Themes and Nightmares
    But I've heard/been told some scary stories about them. I don't know if they're actually true but they made me suitably fearful of the machines. There's a reason if you see someone with a mangled hand or arm and they...

    Also: my fridges, oven/stovetop and washing machine each fit in a 600x600mm footprint 600mm is about 23 1/2 inches. Which is tiny for the US. While you can get specialty smaller units in the US dishwashers are designed to fit...

    Dual tub washing machines. I think what is meant is that top loaders have a perforated tub which sits inside of tub that holds the water. So you wind up loosing about 2" of volume....

    and a couple of powered rollers over the top that you can feed clothes through the rid them of water. Also good for removing unnecessary fingers and a surprising proportion of a small child. A friend from my teens talked...

    We still have Sears Barely. The last store in the area in the Triangle Town Center is scheduled to be closed by the end of October. Currently running clearance sales....
  • Commented on Invisible Sun: Themes and Nightmares
    I used to buy clothes and shoes at Sears and Penney's. Two US store chains that revolutionized retail and mail order in the US 100 years ago. And dominated mid level retail for the next 80 years. Then did their...

    Just as Tesco is the UK equivalent of WalMart, albeit with more emphasis on food and less on random other domestic items. That has changed over the last 5-10 years. Walmart is now the #1 grocer in the US....

    There is a news article with references to statements by the local local police....
  • Commented on Invisible Sun: Themes and Nightmares
    I have to wonder how much of all of this is related to the fact that washing machines in Europe and very different beasts than those in the US. What we in the US consider a small washer is a...
