Re: its an Airbus H R Giger Ebike

They're selling the first 50 for 2000 euros (about USD$2250) then they're hoping to get north of USD$50K each. Cool looking frame, and less than 80 pounds. I admit I was tempted at $2250, but after taking a closer look... It's supposed to have a top speed of 49MPH... offroad motorcycle tire on the ...

Re: Tesla December sales finally beat Nissan Leaf

Leafs really are the modder's car. No matter what you do to it, it's gonna look better than how it looked rolling out of the factory. I keed, I keed. I'm only in this thread 'cause I'm one of the fifteen thousand people Linkedin slurped from your Google contact list, methods.

Re: First time drink IPA beer

Alright, so English being tightwads and capitalists recognized a domestic market, but right away began to reduce the hops and screw with the marketing aspects, until what we have today is several English Pale Ales called “India Ales” when they ARE NOT. The profile of an IPA, regardless of whether w...

Re: What do you do to get fit and lose weight?

Insulin ;) :D When I'm watching my diet more closely (I haven't been, lately) I try to keep my carbohydrate intake matched up with how much exercise I'm getting. Lots of exercise means I get to refuel with lots of carbohydrates, though I still try to keep 'em under 40% of total calories. After a lo...

Re: What do you do to get fit and lose weight?

I have to recommend P90X, for a few reasons. 1) Because they're well balanced, and even the days like Kempo and stretching, which don't seem to make sense because they are too easy, make sense because they keep your body in the right conditioning of workout-rest-workout-rest. 2) I think as cheesy a...

According to the latest research, stop sugar intake (including any processed food, with lots of corn syrup), drastically reduce hydrocarbon intake, increase fat intake. That's all. And it comes with greatly reduced risk of cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and probably Alzheimer. Makes sense that dr...

Speaking of abs, how does one get them firm? I don't want to do the wrong exercises. I don't really care about legs; I just want strong arms and tight abs. The arms I'm working on. I'm not going for size so much as strength and definition in the arms, and in the abs as well. It's better to aim for ...

I'm having a difficult time finding data on how much CO2 and CO has been expelled (roughly) from the major volcanoes.

I would be interested in testing this, if I can use it for a 66V Lipo pack and if the parts cost isn't too high. I already bought three CellLogs, intending to plug in one 6S4P pack into each. Presumably with this setup I'd only populate the first 18 channels of the board, use all 8 channels of the f...
