    Now the drive from Mesa Verdi to about 2/3s of the way to Monument Valley was done at night. And my wife would have likely been cowering in the trunk if we had done in when the sun was out....

    Remember the discussion about the low bridge in Durham NC that regularly catches a too tall truck. It caught another one today....

    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 my wife would have...

    Why build that much coal? When you're taking a billion people from mud huts with dirt floors in less than 2 generations you get to build anything and everything trying to keep up. If you have the power to say...

    We had a schedule and it was OK. But not over scheduled. But we were used to driving on the right and I had driven curvy twisty sort of mountain roads before. Biggest schedule issues are the periodic 1 lane...

    That's a great drive, but if you've really got a ton of time, start in Morro Bay and get on Highway 1, then hit Monterey Without going into too much detail we tried the LA to SF via Highway 1...

    I've driven between Texas and NC twice. About 19 hours of pure driving. Tedious. The second time I got smarter and left at midnight, slept at a motel during the next day then drove all night after that. Missed all...

    You tripped one of my bugaboos with many people from Europe not really understanding just how big the country is. Talking to an 18 year old hotel front desk clerk in Germany last December he mentioned he really wanted to...

    I haven't been there for years. Since before the big dig that made the roads a lot more sane. But back in the day it was more of survival of the fittest than getting from point A to B....

    I was taught that coal powered stations are relatively easy to regulate at moderate pace of 10-20 minutes, while nuclear stations aren't really usable for that - it is downright dangerous or damaging and takes hours if not days. You...

    why would anyone go to Boston? Because Boston and New York are the main bastions of civilization in the US? (Ducks and runs …) But it is an app reply. Foreign visitors to the US visit these 3 cities most...

    Slight change of subject but somewhat relevant. Just now my news feed from Google popped about the close flybys to occur. space.com headline 2 Asteroids Will Harmlessly Fly By Earth This Weekend. But NASA Will Wave Helo Anyway! express.co.uk headline...

    During that time I was a kid living a couple of hours north of Fort Campbell. 101st Airborne. Periodically they would do low level training flights of groups of the planes used for parachute drops. I don't know how low...

    You missed my point. The original state was something like if you're ever in the US stop by. It is a BIG country. Greg could travel to the US and still only be about 1/2 of the way to that...

    I'd take something like -10 C (14 F) rather than +2 C if I had the choice, most of the time. ... Of course this also depends on how you dress, but for me it's harder to dress warmly in...

    but given a sufficient market such that DC appliances exist they could just skip all that equipment and loss. My formal electrical engineering training is way in the past but I'm not convinced that DC in the home/office is all...

    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 up or shut it...

    F35. ... When I walk in the park next to a 4 lane highway, they drown out the traffic noise. And yet except for when they do vertical I suspect they are quieter than most previous as they can do...

    If you ever make it to the U.S. I'll take you up there. Now you're just messing with him. If he flies to Boston he would be in the US but only a bit over 1/2 way to that spot....

    but the French seem to have no problems at all with their nuke plants? Of all the western style democracies they seem to have both a reasonably low level of government corruption and a high level of top down government...

    Government subsidies can certainly help if they exist, but the reality is that the boom in solar in the US for the last decade has been primarily driven by operations like Solar City who in pay the upfront costs. You...

    Hand the panels out for near free and people will pay to put them up. Even if the panels are free the cost of the bits to get from variable DC out to AC that we all love isn't trivial....

    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 San Francisco." Never visit...

    If it wasn't about smoking—if smoking indoors was legal—those patios would either be fully enclosed or unheated for use during good weather only. Sorry, around here (US South) those patios are non smoking and get to be used twice as...

    The "money", actually wealth in terms of production facilities and materials costs and design and transport comes from everyone since climate change isn't constrained by borders and lines in the sand. I recently talked with the head of a group...

    There's some evidence that the temperature you're raised in has a lifetime effect on the one you feel comfortable in reading something about density of sweat glands being different, but can't locate the reference now. My summers were hot and...

    Next step is to figure out how to change the default ring tone to something short & sweet (preferably Ding once and go straight to voicemail) that won't bother me too much so I can use the current default for...

    Worse, there's a glut of this kind of housing in parts of Australia, Europe, the Middle East, and California, to my knowledge, so it's probably not even worthwhile for investors anymore. But they keep trying to build more of it....

    which then triggers the more paranoid employees into thinking they are being personally targeted when their cubicle hits 80+ F I'm winter. Which also ignores that people have different temps that they feel comfortable in. As to genetics vs experience...
