I always get a chuckle out of naïve people in society, that claim their corrupt govt,/military would never allow or be involved in any type of spraying chemicals in our atmosphere. . . .

It never ceases to amaze me how people will refuse to believe the emissions from billions and billions of cars and factories and most industrial processes has anything to do with climate change, but have total credence that spraying some chemicals from a few thousand aircraft can materialize enough water from a cloudless sky to cause a 500 year flood. Their Occam's razor is looking pretty rusty.
Or at least is no longer a simple device.

Rubbing alcohol makes a good temporary lubricant. You may need to pull pretty hard on it to get it out.

This is my favorite Quote here or outside.

Example:
Me: why yes it is electric!
Other: how far will it go?
Me: As far as the power lines go with out solar panels.
Me: how far will yours go?
Other: :confused:

Interesting. BSA made a shiftable fixed/free 2 speed hub called the 'DP'. There were cables controls to both sides of the hub.

I've never read so much disinformation in a single thread. What's going on in this forum? It's been a while since I visited, and things seem to have taken a massive turn downhill.

Hey, Lars. I've read that previous post twice, and I'm trying hard to find the part about electric motors. It sort of sounds off topic, but...I don't want to be accused of censoring valuable electric motor posts...

I do appreciate your focussed attempt to be witty. Judging by your credentials (vide 100 megawatt), you must be very bright.
