Re: Ivermectin/Covid info

I actually had the Covid, but it was not the original version... it was the recent Omicron variety which is mild. But I will say it was more PERSISTENT than any natural cold I ever had. The worst cold I got in my now 61 years of life was 2010 which was probably H1N1 or something... I was wrecked for...

Re: gas price thread

Very Interesting Plot Twist Apparently there are at present 6,000 drilling permits ALREADY APPROVED but they aren't being used. So using Critical Thinking when new evidence enters the picture you must adjust your logic to adapt. What this is saying is the blame is not focused on the regulator (gove...

This mornings work... about two hours to Countersink the bolts on this freewheel assembly.

Things were really off so I had to wrestle to steer the drill back towards a central position.

Looks to have ended up "good enough".

Except politics is emotional not logical. Overall we have seen a Dumbing Down of humanity. So as we get Dumb and Dumber the emotionalism increases and the Critical Thinking declines.

Re: gas price thread

Now we see pipelines shut down on purpose. No pipelines are shut down on purpose (fact.) FALSE. Think of the sequence... America completes the Keystone pipeline and it is immediately shut down before even being used. Russia had plans to supply Europe with cheap oil with a pipeline and they shut tha...

Walk back a few years and America was EXPORTING it's abundant oil. (fact) Now we see pipelines shut down on purpose. Now we see drilling contracts denied on purpose. Now we see that we are rejecting Russian oil because "we" (the rulers) want LGBT in Ukraine. So that's the "bottom line...

Re: Roll up solar panel 144 Watt

Compared to Sunpower cells the efficiency of these are really bad. Sunpower individual cells perform at around 22%. Unless there was an error in the description at Battery Hookup they LIST a horrible 6% efficiency. I'd rather buy the Sunpower cells and do a DIY project to connect them myself which a...

Herringbone paddlewheels been around for ever forever. Someone once thought they mayt be better. However, the feathering or Spider crank paddle wheel is much, much more efficient. Also is a normal straight paddle wheel. Trust me. There is a reason they do what they do. No one ever reinvented the wh...
