    to get just one million tonnes of Morris Minors, you need 80-100% of every Morris Minor ever made I fear, sirrah, that you might be slyly insinuating that there is some hint of a practical problem with my idea....

    using the winches to move Ben Nevis up and down? Winches? I thought we were talking about wenches in Landrovers now? As a source of power they're apparently very good, just ask the owner of The Sun... it's a whole...

    Greg, as has been said it's only a solved problem for trivial amounts of energy. JBS and EC are talking about using 10 cubic metres of something that weighs on the order of 100 million tonnes... that's why geology suddenly...

    I’m getting déjà vous You and me have played this game before, a few times. At one stage we had the City of London floating on several million tonnes of mercury because that made the numbers work better, but I...

    Assume it's concrete with a specific gravity of about 3 (the steel or whatever you wrap it in is such a small part of the mass that it's pretty much irrelevant), then you have 50m^2 * pi * 100 =...

    There's a really similar discussion back here: http://www.antipope.org/charlie/blog-static/2018/11/what-do-you-know-about-my-inne.html#comment-2056345 Without the seals you just have an absolutely standard pumped hydro system, so all the gibberish on the website of pointless. If the weight floats then you can remove it from the...

    https://heindl-energy.com/ 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. The cool part...

    Now I'm wondering just how much structural integrity a flying wing needs. It strikes me that you could make an "inflatable" drone that was filled with a fluid like, say, ampho, and pressurise it a bit to keep it more...

    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 boards that...

    Model planes have this for the weekend flyers. While I don't know the actual accuracy of the drone strikes, I can tell you that a model aircraft will consistently land within 2-3 metres of the target, conditions permitting (GPS doesn't...

    And many cultures overlay such onto religions Well, yes, that's what currently allows Christians to blithely run around not worrying that they may violating the laws of their religion in this and other ways. It's like the arguments about...

    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. From the trivial stuff like Sikh daggers being...

    The next obvious step is to consider things that smell worse as they decay than tuna Synthesising putrescine is tricky but doable, mostly because the whole point is that it smells atrocious. I have considered it but it's on a...

    NOT Tuna = cans of pickled pork would be much more effective! You realise that it's only the eating of pork that our Abrahamic brethren refuse? Although I'm sure that if you asked them they would object to having drones...

    Guernsey is 65 km^2. According to the most easily accessible website insolation at solstice should be about 2kWh/m2 for the day, so assuming 20% efficiency we'd get 400Wh/m2. Over 65km2 or 65 million square metres that's 26GWh. Assuming it's a...

    Or chainsaws. Those are popular with the "big R/C" crowd because they're very light and air-cooled, and available in the right power output range. Motorbikes tend to be more powerful and correspondingly heavier, but you could use the extra power...

    But you'd only go with a jet to get speed, and you start to run into regulatory hurdles very quickly because most countries have quite strong restrictions on amateur remotely operated vehicles - they limit altitude and weight, but sometimes...

    TPTB seem to think that the Houthis couldn't possibly do this on their own. If one guy in a garage in Auckland can do it I struggle to see why a whole bunch of people working together can't do it....

    Tidal pool storage? Wouldn't that need either a really big estuary you wanted to kill, or a tidal range in the hundreds of metres? My limited knowledge of tidal barrages is that you need to leave them open most of...

    China is also known for planning all the things, starting a lot of the things, then changing their minds and starting all over again. Quite often what actually gets built makes perfect sense, but the price for that is planning...
