Soylent News is slowly getting better and better. I still check it each day, and the comments section has slowly been getting more interesting and more full over time. It's not as good as
"It's not irrational to consider a pressure cooker and propane tank parked near the US Capitol to be sufficiently unusual as to merit further investigation"
"Bomb squads don't "investigate" items that might be bombs."
Hard to believe they came from the same poster in the same thread, isn't it? It warrants further investigation!
Do you have any idea how bloody dangerous 120V DC is? You will hold that wire a long time before you die.
DC motors still have their place, but with the advent of VSDs, not as much as before. That being said, large AC motors/generators still require a DC field current. In the old days this was done by a DC generator on the same shaft(with associated brushes...). Now days we do it electrically (thyristors to make a variable field), but most medium to large AC motors I have worked on have brushes for the field current. Not everything can be self-excited or use permanent magnets.
Imagine your 90 year old grandmother suddenly regressing in age a bit, with a restored mental and physical agility.
Frankly, that would be awesome. I can think of few things that would make me happier.
Since you're so knowledgable about information you don't have access to, can you tell me if the tie I'm going to wear next Tuesday goes with the shirt I was planning to wear it with?
I have no idea.
Are you saying 97% agreement among expert judges does not fall under the term consensus?
That's not what I said. I said you don't understand what they agree on.
It's hard to build a net that can't be easily cut through.
It's hard to build a net that doesn't destroy the view.
Anyone who argues against things that people didn't say is wasting their own time. You are one of those people.
That is true, I am wasting my time, since you don't even understand what you are saying, you think there is a consensus, but you don't know what that consensus is.
If you understood what there is consensus on, then you would be more interesting to talk to. Instead you're just ignorant to talk to.
