Re: Factor X have we finally found the fountain of Youth?

The number I came to looking at mortality figures several years ago, excluding old age and infant mortality, was an average lifespan around 1000 years. Of course both luck and lifestyle choice would impact that. Half the population would have a fatal accident sometime during their first 1000 years, ...

Re: Sintered metal objects from a standard FDM 3D printer

How does this compare to lost-PLA metal casting? I'm guessing not nearly as good.

No image at the linked page of the new design. I wonder if it resembles the peanut plasma configuration I came up with while we were speculating on the design.

Re: Sell The Whitehouse to Trump

But who do we trust to determine what's real and what's fake? I certainly don't trust a government that locked up a man over exposing a major scandal of government officials ignoring pedophile rape gangs.

Re: Mach effect questions

So, found my notes, here's the fun parts, I'm wanting to work to being able to go from knowable quantities such as capacitance(in farads), voltage, acceleration etc. into physical needs and predictions. My understanding of Woodward's hypothesis is dE/dT is a major factor. Energy(capacitor) = (1/2)C...

Re: Mach effect questions

On the theme of high frequency, a brainstorm: A flywheel with dielectric on the edge, energized and de-energized by sector(s) of the surrounding case charged to high voltage. Control cases can include no charge, and different combinations of sectors charged, and different spin rates. If I understan...

Re: Sell The Whitehouse to Trump

Not, by themselves, proof beyond a reasonable doubt that he rapes children. But it sure raises the question, and paints a picture of a freak no one in their right mind would trust with a child.

Re: Water based propulsion for deep space efforts

Performance using water as propellant is directly related to how you're heating the water. With solid core fission the ISP isn't so great, it's hard to deal with the hotter reactors and corrosive effect of water. With solar heated water you might get some very good ISP, at not so great thrust becaus...

Re: Sell The Whitehouse to Trump

There are issues with Trump. But with the massive corruption being exposed, aimed at overturning a lawful election, and the judicial and legislative legacy he's building, I think he's the president we Need right now. Any other president wouldn't be driving his opposition to publicly take positions, ...

Re: Sell The Whitehouse to Trump

Wikipedia is not a reliable source on politically charged issues, especially when a fair treatment might tend to challenge the democrat Narrative. I stand by my initial assessment of pizzagate: consistent with the known character of the accused democrats, but short on evidence I'd want to go to cour...

Re: Skynet is coming.

A reasonably sized lithium polymer battery, consumer grade, could deliver a few kW to a one man portable weapon for several minutes. Converting that into useful weapons output is not so trivial.

Re: Sell The Whitehouse to Trump

Over this last week I got several inquiries from apparently headhunters who care more for quantity of applicants than quality, for jobs completely outside what my resume would support. The hiring process is broken.

Re: Sell The Whitehouse to Trump

Where Trump outclasses every other President is in getting corrupt opposition to expose themselves. Which isn't too difficult when you're a fearless SOB who isn't afraid of offending people, and your opposition is so mindlessly opposed to you that they take an opposing stance to anything you say, re...

Re: Skynet is coming.

I've been toying with the idea of electrically powered slug throwers in place of gunpowder. Energy density in the battery isn't anywhere close to a problem. Power density, particularly for higher energy rounds, does look like a problem. My focus has been on electrically powered air guns, and a compa...
