Re: Post your Pets here!

Ah, the beautiful fellows and girls above! Every one, I'd love as a life-partner. I wonder if YT has some videos of great dogs of the past? Not our pets, per se, but they were famous keepers of the peace of the past... and would truly work for their supper! Amazing. And HE knows the drill, in five m...

Re: Kitegen High Altitude Wind Power - Very Clever Idea IMO

Everything seems to lead back to solar heat energy, for all the tides' power and winds, unreliable, a great deal of the world is constantly warmed by forever predictable solar heat. And it seems liable that using that heat, translated into water (high latent heat) and then drawing the energy out of ...

That's great, warming, beautiful, above. I just can't stand the thought: dogs are short-lived humans. It's the eventual loss that I can no longer bear. Barney came to us at his age of sixteen.

Lubrication Theory and Practice for bicyclists

Early bicycles always employed oil, rather that grease. Why? Grease is merely a form of thickened oil, thickened so it will not run out. Oil is the lubricant, not the grease-base. Grease is generally a cooked concoction of some form of metallic soap, plus some sort of non-fixed oil. Q: what is a non...
