remove the heat from the liquid, then allow it to expand in the evaporator and it'll get gold,

Merde. It looks like auto-corrupt got me again because "g" isn't particularly close to "c". (either in music or on a QWERTY keyboard).

Re: To the progressives here

It's worth recalling precisely what a "heat pump" is -- it's nothing more than an evaporator/compressor/condenser cycle where the evaporator and condenser roles can be reversed depending on whether one wants to heat or cool the area that one is residing in. The minimum temperature in that can be att...

Re: Corona Virus

We didn't have "four years of Obama" we had eight more years of Cheney/Dubya. Obama did precisely nothing whilst in office other than further enrich the ruling class. As far as the comment on Biden goes, that's accurate: he has never been the friend of the working class.

Re: Corona Virus

It is apparent that you disagree with the points made by Faldaguy, but posting facts to support your disagreement would carry far more weight than ridicule and personal comments. This is a fundamental problem with the way that things are taught in the USA. The response to anything that even smacks ...

Re: Corona Virus

I feel that if a person has so little care for his life not to get vaccinated then the minimum of care should be taken to prolong their life if they catch covid badly. Aside from the individual (in duh vidual?) having little care for his own life, he is also being ridiculously irresponsible with th...

Re: Corona Virus

I've been of the opinion for several months now that if a non-vaccinated person arrives at hospital with COVID-related symptoms that they be sent to the back of the queue -- and if they're in the ICU taking up space that a trauma victim needs then they get sent home. Full stop. We've had enough of t...

Re: How green is "GREEN"

Lubricating oil, so long as it's not exposed to high temperatures, tends to have quite a long lifetime so long as it's filtered well and kept free of contaminants. An astonishing thing I learnt a few weeks ago when watching a piece on diesel-electric railway locomotives was that the several hundred ...

Re: To the progressives here

The [IRS] are wolves in sheeps clothing. The problem is that it's the fat-cat class and the large corporations that are writing the tax codes for their personal benefit, not the betterment of society and the general welfare. That's why the billionaire class and most of the Fortune 500 companies eff...

Re: Skirts on the F1 Grid?

At present, I'm not really sure it's worth the bother. First off, we're going to have to produce the stuff at an industrial scale rivalling that of oil refining, then add to that the fact that we're going to have to create the technologies pretty much from scratch to move the stuff around -- safely ...

More specifically it is the males of the avian species who put on the brightest displays.
Perhaps a lesson for us homo sapiens there.
Indeed, it is the human male which stands out from virtually all other species for his drabness. 'Tis a pity, really.

Re: Corona Virus

I didn't pick up on that little nugget of sh*t. I believe you're noting this small pile: One of the indiocators as to whether or not a virus may be lab derived, is whether it's transmisible from an animal to humans and vice versa. That gave me pause for a little bit because it flies in the face of ...

Re: Out and About -- In the World at Large

Looking recently through two large chothes retailers here there wasn't a skirt to be seen anywhere.. They apparently all wear trews or leggings with tops now. Sad, but hardly unexpected. Anything other than "leggings" ('80s fashion victim!) and tr*users is likely relegated to formal affairs or if t...

Re: Corona Virus

I invented Covid. It was me. In my kitchen, in late 2019. It was based on making corn, sous vide style. So I called it CoVid ‘19. It didn’t taste good, so I threw it over the fence, where some pigs ate it, just before they were taken off to make bacon. I never saw them again. Doggone it, it was a l...

Re: Out and About -- In the World at Large

This may be a silly question but aren't submarines either on the surface, in which case there should be someone up top on lookout, or deep enough not to impact with a surface vessel? Apart from getting entangled in a net and maybe dragging the boat under. Most collisions between submarines and surf...
