Re: US Presidential election odds

You haters (you know who you are) will miss Trump. You will no longer be able to post because you will have nothing to complain about.

That was likely right after the farmer planted an IUD.

Re: A Shadow of Darkness From Australia.

I would consider any of those charges against special forces as BS. If nothing else, give those soldiers the benefit of the doubt. It is entirely possible that one of those soldiers could snap because of the pressures of fighting terrorists and seeing a brother blown apart by a chicken Sh*t IUD. To ...

Re: Will Trump concede?

Keep in mind that Biden did not win the election. It was anyone except Trump that won. About the same way that Trump won, it was anyone but Hillary.

Re: Solar/Wind energy for the future. Forget it

I have a friend who raised Sacha Inchi berries and processed them into oil. Unfortunately his farm was off the grid. He had built a very large solar system using those expensive 2 volt batteries. I'm not at all familiar with three phase solar systems. He needed three phase for two of the processing ...

Re: Solar/Wind energy for the future. Forget it

I think batteries will be an important part of green energy at least for the near future. The encouraging thing is that with wind and solar working together, the batteries can be much smaller because wind will help balance the demand and the energy will not require such massive storage capacity.

Re: Solar/Wind energy for the future. Forget it

I'm not smart enough to build electronic things and wouldn't have the patience anyways. I have often thought about installing a roof mounted solar heater but my neighbor's huge trees shade the area where it would need to be. Besides that the solar system holds a lot of water and I'm not sure if the ...

Re: Will Trump concede?

As I have posted before, in real life, it makes no difference to me who got elected. I don't resent Trump for hanging on until the final results were in. But, as of now, I just would like to see him concede and let Biden get on with it. Georgia was the final nail in his coffin. I am looking forward...

Re: Solar/Wind energy for the future. Forget it

I looked for a bulk hot water storage tank and eliminate the instant shower heater. I was not able to find one with a low enough temperature setting. The thermostats lowest setting is still too hot and I don't want to change the plumbing for a mixer valve. I'm actually quite lazy.

Re: Solar/Wind energy for the future. Forget it

Just a tip for those small home built solar systems. I had disappointing results when I first got into solar. Using the recommended amount of solar panels simply did not work for me. Batteries, even with deep cycle batteries, life is shortened from discharging them below 50 percent. On top of that I...

Re: Solar/Wind energy for the future. Forget it

Sundrop farm is an absolutely brilliant concept. Distilling sea water into fresh water and using the steam to generate electricity is thinking out of the box. I would hope there are more companies trying this approach. It looks like they have covered all the bases, even keeping the mirrors clean.

Re: Solar/Wind energy for the future. Forget it

Solar irrigation in some areas is a dangerous practice. Farmers and industries have pumped so much water that the underground aquafers have been pumped dry. Many expensive deep wells have gone dry. Fortunately here in Thailand that is not likely. The rain here, when it comes, often is torrential and...

Are you saying that slowing the spread is a poor idea?

Slowing the spread keeps the hospitals from being over run. Being able to give victims the best possible care means that the number of victims must be controlled. Shutting everything down is counter productive.

Re: U.K. going on lockdown, USA stopping restricting movement. WTF

I was and am still convinced that this highly contagious disease is going to infect a majority of all people. Until we have herd immunity, it is not controllable. An effective vaccine or vaccines will widen the herd immunity rapidly. As it is, all the controls now used only prolong the spread of the...

Re: Solar/Wind energy for the future. Forget it

Up here in the boonies of Loei there are huge tracts of land that are still not connected to the electrical grid. Thaksin came up with the idea of solar to make the life of these poor farmers much better. He convinced fledgling electronic companies to build small solar systems. The government instal...
