    Not exactly. They once valued their own credibility. They once operated as if they cared if the "dollar" lasts three more years or not. They once tried to educate kids how the system was designed to work. The incrementalism of the past is over. They used to play hearts to shed point cards. Since the turn of the millennium, they try to shoot the moon on every deal

    That's an amusing hit piece. Don't believe her just because she says she's a health expert. Believe me when I say I'm a digital health expert (and avocado eater, not necessarily in that order). They represent a high similarity, but that's not definitive. That's a non-denial denial worthy of Nixon. Not that I saw that at the site you linked (I see you added a link on edit, maybe it's there). But I did find this: Wait, isn't this a company that has been made immune from liability claims, and an agency that was bypassed in this case?

    Yeah, I think you're focusing on the wrong aspect of this. https://www.esquire.com/sports/a36530138/simone-biles-summer-olympics-yurchenko-double-pike-explained/ When you're training and developing the ability to do things others can't in order to get the higher difficulty scores, and spending the time and effort that others aren't willing to do, and then they reduce your scores because they're afraid others can't do it, I can empathize with that. That can give you the "John Galt - Why am I bothering?" outlook. And going into the games with that kind of letdown is going to affect your performance. But the interesting part here is NOT about how or why she quit - it's that the left thinks she was treated unfairly. She was. But they treat overperformers unfairly ALL THE TIME. It's only when it happens to one of their "protected classes" that it matters to them. This seems like a great opportunity to show them their own hypocrisy.

    There was no dysfunction on 12-8-1941. The only dysfunction on 9-12-2001 was we attacked Baghdad instead of Langley. Unfortunately, they are patient enough to wait for us to slide before giving us a blatantly obvious common external enemy. So I say we must be careful not to let them define our divisions. You know, the way everyone from Putin to the Chinese controlled media keep denying the possibility that parts of Canada could secede and join parts of the U.S.

    Well, yeah, except... 1. China has about as many men aged 20-50 as we have people. 2. When cops get back to running speed traps again, we may find half our population is susceptible to being cooked from the inside out when someone points a radar gun at the graphene antennae in their cells. So how is being divided going to help us again? To paraphrase Dubya, I'd rather fight them in California than fight them here.

    So the U.N. didn't use division as an excuse to walk into Korea? How about Rwanda? The British wanted their empire to remain intact, so they encouraged Jews to immigrate to Palestine. Did that divide their empire, or just give certain rebellious subjects something to do other than emancipating themselves? They can build a world government without tearing down the existing governments? They're ideologically opposed to what it stands for? I wouldn't bet forty-seven cents that ten percent of the population has one clue what the Constitution stands for. And if it's only enforced until the Chinese finish turning California into Taiwan, and then say, "Next!"?

    Can you prove to me the number of cases is rising? If so, that's a first in the history of vaccines, that half the population got them and the result was more sickness. Sounds like the vaccine is to blame. If not, what was the question again? It really is that simple.

    But, you see, that's not hypocrisy because reducing someone's math grade isn't the same as reducing someone's score for athleticism. One isn't white supremacy, the other is. Of course, the only way to label either white supremacist is to say blacks are good at sports and bad at math. Blacks are bad at math is just as much a racist stereotype as saying they're good at sports. But no liberal minds that sort of double standard really. The ones that don't go their way are something to bitch about. And that's important. Liberals don't belch and don't fart, so without bitching they'd clearly explode.

    Right?! lol. I really didn't make this thread to discuss her reasons for quitting or to put it into that side of the debate. Frankly, that doesn't interest me. What does interest me is that the Olympic Committee was, in effect, reducing her scores because her degree of difficulty was too high for the others to compete. That's driving the left insane - but they have no problem deducting money from overachievers every other day.

    I've been on many industry calls and workshops on Hydrogen and the economics still aren't there, yet. There is some promise there as an energy storage medium - but it's unlikely it'll ever make a good generation source. Here's a helpful color code that I keep on my desk: In the case of this thread, we're talking about Green Hydrogen. luctor-et-emergo was right when he talked about the inefficiencies. There is some hope to get the efficiency ratings up, but it's going to take a long time. Utility generators love the idea because they know that they'll get paid for all the electric produced for Green or Yellow Hydrogen instead of what is actually used. Nuclear plants are pushing for Pink. The idea is to produce the hydrogen store of energy and then move it and use it somewhere else. It basically becomes a battery. But it'll take a long time to get better than Li-ion and it'll never get better than transmission lines as a way to move energy from one point to another. Doesn't mean there aren't applications for it - just means they are few.

    Not so much. Hydrogen isn't created. It's an element. It's separated from the oxygen in water. Yes, that requires an investment of over 100% of the potential chemical energy you get out of it. Yes, energy storage is difficult whether it's hydrogen, gasoline or electricity. So is transportation; a pipeline does not differ radically in the amount of pumping energy from the loss due to resistance in high tension lines. And batteries are still heavy, which means electric vehicles that don't tap catenary wires or third rails are heavier than internal combustion vehicles, meaning it takes more energy to move them.

    Yes, at the very least during the long distance transmission portion of the signal's journey. And microwave antennas are readily available that are .06mm long. Not quite short enough to put in a vaccine, but the shorter the wavelength, the shorter the antennae which can pick them up.

My personal story (pt2)

by CaptUSA on 02-24-2016 at 09:57 AM
Among my many interests was electricity and I decided that I wanted to change how the industry operates. Understanding the free market as I did, I was pissed that the coolest discovery in the history of mankind was being regulated to death by the government. I wanted to change that.

I found a job as a part-time temporary meter reader. My girlfriend went ballistic that I was quitting a salaried job for a part-time temp job, but I had complete confidence in what I was doing. Meter

My personal story (pt 1)

by CaptUSA on 02-24-2016 at 09:55 AM
I’ve never used this blog feature before, but since people have wondered (and asked) about my personal story, I figured it was best to do it in here rather than the forums.

It may come across as anecdotal, but I assure you that this same type free market story is working itself out all over the country and the globe. Even in the face or increasing government interference.

I was born in Western PA the third of four boys. When I was still a baby, the second child died
