    Simon: Do you believe that you are a part of God's plan? Thomas Daggett: That's a complicated question. Simon: No it isn't....

    "However. FB is so fucking ubiquitous that not using FB is getting to be like refusing to use email" It's not the App or the device, its the network. Facebook (just like email or landline phones before it) has gotten...

    Thirded Bob-verse The audio books are pretty excellent too...
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    Like someone said earlier it's not the device it's the network that makes phones indispensable Just like the land line telephone before them There is certainly an awful lot of "old man shakes fist at cloud" I used to be...

    Because Charlie realizes that any attempt to escape it is merely another delusion? I mean he does live in a pretty heavily survealed country And that is you can't escape the downside you might as well have the upside ......
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    If you remember the late 90's and Microsoft it's not at all uncommon for the winners of a wave of technical innovation to face a political backlash. I'd almost say it's part of the cycle It's generally pretty hard in...
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    Yeah we are kinda screwed on this one for sure , turned out to be a lot easier to hack the minds of the average Joe then I thought it was going to be. At the time no one in...
  • Commented on Houston: what are the long-term consequences?
    One of the things I always liked in the "Twilight 2000" universe was that after the limited nuclear war the chain of succession got so borked up that the US ended up with two quasi legit governments (military and civilian)...
  • Commented on Houston: what are the long-term consequences?
    Houston will get rebuilt. This time. As Hobar Mallow once (paraphrased) said it takes a long time to exhaust the resources of a first class planet The question is will it get rebuilt before the next one hits? The other...

    The other intersting thing about the Central Valley is it, before the dams, it wasn't unheard of for it to completely flood and turn temporarily back into an inland sea for s few days I'm not sure the role that...

    Not to mention you can count the actual cases of EV batteries caching on fire as the result of accidents on the fingers of one hand I'll take that risk any day if it comes with a really low center...

    Heating and cooling is a huge huge factor in energy consumption As an example in my well designed well insulated 3500 sqrft house a normal day will consume about 7kwh However when the temperature recently spiked to 100F I burned...

    sometimes pictures help more then words. https://static.seattletimes.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/473db056-7944-11e7-9d40-beed802dbdca-1560x974.jpg also i love the ideas of electric scooter, there are actually a bunch of plays trying to make that. It's not a perfect solution though, weather for example, or longer commutes but it's...

    So like I said I have had a tesla for four years ands it's generally been spot on at judging battery range There are also a ton of posts on various tesla groups of people limping in on the last...

    "Newness" is orthogonal and unrelated to "betterness". It doesn't predict either way. Some new things are stupid and relatively useless (internet of things as an example) . Some are awesome and all together better (EV's) Each needs to be evaluated...

    You need to understand that you are lumping a large number of IC auto problems into the term "electrical ". IC engines have gotten pretty complicated and heavily computerized and there is indeed a lot to go wrong Most of...

    Yeah I know Camry's are reliable I had one once My Tesla is to my Camry as my Motorola flip phone is to my iPhone. So drastically superior it's arguable they are even the same beast anymore Moving parts are...

    Frank in general the research shows the exact opposite of your claim.you really should read the link I provided you are spouting disinformation Also the various design flaws in your Bokt should not be taken as endemic in EV's in...

    Most off the grid systems use lead/acid it's still the most cost effective when you don't care about weight However Nojay isn't saying that lead/acid is bad he's saying repurposed lead / acid car batteries are bad which makes sense...

    David I think things vary s fair amount based on region Your souuthern experience is probably on the opposite end if the bell curve from London...
  • Commented on Help Wanted at the Climate Policy Sausage Factory
    I think your initial assumptions are wrong Frank For one thing I can't figure out how you possibly got to 100k, you've got to be carrying the majority of the expenses in your EV For another the plan for each...
  • Commented on There is no extra credit in science fiction.
    Yes We were just talking about this at work funnily enough No one cares how hard you work Do no mistake motion for progress...
  • Commented on The World of Tomorrow
    This is probably what a modern military crossbow would look like Note the size, force applied to the bolt is a function of both the draw weight and the length of the limbs. One of the reasons why crossbows typically...
  • Commented on The World of Tomorrow
    "Crossbows and conventional small longbows (shortbows?) are easier to manufacture than rifles, don't require gunpowder, and are probably about as useful as modern rifles in constrained urban engagements (i.e., where rapid fire rates are unavailable out of the desire to...
  • Commented on The World of Tomorrow
    18 panels is probably around a 5kW system That means if you are pulling down 30+ kWh during the winter months you are doing really well, at least compared to what I am used to from more northern latitudes My...
  • Commented on The World of Tomorrow
    Here is some example data for my rooftop solar to see what I am talking about It's a 10 panel 2.5 kW system Toggle it to year -> 2016 to see how much it varies seasonally I'm actually pretty interested...
  • Commented on The World of Tomorrow
    Most commercial panels are 14-16%, you usually get around 250-300 watts from a 15 sqrft panel. There are some coming out now in the 340 range but they are pricey He could be producing 32kWh over the course of a...
  • Commented on The World of Tomorrow
    How many actual panels do you have ?...
  • Commented on The World of Tomorrow
    No he said in a later post that he makes more the 32kWh on some days. If he actually has a 32kW system as a rooftop it must be one damn big roof or possibly he is using the newer...

    Heteromeles if my physics teacher was here he would wrap your knuckles for messing up your units of measure. Kw is not the same thing as KWH, solar panels are measured in watts or KW Yeah the price of solar...
