The only way to keep your health is to eat what you don't want, drink what you don't like, and do what you'd rather not. - Mark Twain
While I'm not a troll by any means, the level of hostility and such has led me to feel it would be a good idea to apologize to everyone for having wasted their time with a ridiculous inquiry. Trolling was never my intention, but it appears I may have done so unintentionally by asking to be informed by people that are experts of many fields, and intelligent and well educated, so you all have what apology I can offer. And I'm quite serious. I don't think I can really say anymore, so I'll leave it at that, link my client to this article, and let him judge for himself.
Link your client to this article? So he can see how you throw him under the bus with your comments? I'm not sure allowing him to see this "hostility" will help in any way unless your goal is to insult him. I wouldn't do that to a client, it's unprofessional, and I especially wouldn't do it to a FRIEND.
I would rather have (minor) damage to the environment than to continue to pay Hundreds of Billions of dollars a year to people who hate our guts and will kill after we (inadvertently) burn some of their holy books (despite our president's gracious apology)..
I didn't realize Canadians hated us so much. It would be helpful if you actually knew where our oil comes from, the largest exporter of oil to the US is Canada, followed by Mexico. If we spent all the money we do on our "oil wars" on renewable technology we wouldn't be so worried about oil exports. It's not about oil, it's about making men rich, oil is just a means to an end.
1. Bee's are very messy creatures. That several-inch gap between the comb and glass will be filled with new comb built by the bee's, don't plan on being able to see much. Bee's don't like open space, they will build comb until it reaches the glass and they have about a 3/8" space to crawl through.
2. Honey is typically extracted by centripetal force. Frames which contain honey are taken out of the hive, the caps sealing the honey need to be cut off with a heated knife, and the frame is spun to get the honey out. Not all comb is honey, much of it is brood (developing bees), something a human would need to separate out.
3. It mentions there is a place to smoke the bee's if it needs cleaning. Bee's who have been smoked WILL fly all over your house. Bee's react to smoke because in nature it means there is a fire and that the hive is about to be destroyed, so the Bee's gorge on honey in anticipation of having to evacuate. They are heavily distracted from other threats but will continue to fly around.
4. I won't even get started about what would happen if this thing broke.
This device strikes me as completely ridiculous. I would NEVER consider keeping bee's in something like this, it seems apparent the designer has never kept bee's before. It resembles a fish tank, not a bee hive.
So the next question is how much does it cost per kWh? In the USA, it's unlikely to be less than 10 or more than 20, so that means that a $25 bill works out to somewhere between 125 and 250kWh for that month, which is pretty low for an American and at the high end of normal for anyone else.
*shrug* I pay 9 cents per Kwh
