If you don't have resistance, any capacitive or inductive effects will be 100% efficient, no?. The whole problem with induction and capacitance in transmission lines is it increases the overall power loss due to unused current flowing through resistive lines. Superconductivity eliminates that source of loss.

I'm sorry but voltage is not the speed of electrons. It is the difference in potential between two points. You can have voltage with absolutely no current. It is equivalent of pressure, not velocity.
Drive-by-wire exists because of emissions regulations. The ECU precisely controls the position and rate of the throttle plate to optimise combustion during transient events. The current emissions regulations require strict control of combustion from the moment the first cylinder fires on cold start-up.
Regular employment in Canada does not involve a contract either. You fill in some government tax and WSIB forms and you are an employee. It's not quite as at-will as in the US (employer owes you termination and severance pay if they terminate you without cause), but you can leave at will.
DNP3 functionality will soon (5-10 years) be embedded in grid-tie solar inverters in Canada so the local power company can control them at will on a per-second basis (I'm working with a local college developing this technology right now). Pretty easy access to the communications channel if you ask me. And no, no one seems interested in security.
Not sure if serious.
The probability of multiple safeties failing is the product of all of the probabilities of failure of individual safeties, no?
Ever try to circumnavigate the globe along the equator? That's right, you can't. There's a big difference between 5 weeks sailing as the crow flies across the Atlantic, and sailing all the way around the world.
You have no idea what entrapment is, do you? Entrapment by nature cannot be performed by undercover police pretending to be something else.
Entrapment is when a police officer *who identifies themselves as a police officer* orders or asks someone to do something illegal and the person complies *because they are a police officer*. They then proceed to arrest the person for committing a crime they told them to do. THAT is entrapment.
Police have the authority to direct you to do something illegal such as drive the wrong way down a one-way street, if the situation warrants. If they arrest you for doing what they said, they have entrapped you.
You want an exact phrase...put it in quotes. You want one of the terms to be guaranteed in the results...put a + in front of it. Want to exclude a term...put a - in front of it. Want to exclude a phrase...put it in quotes and stick a - in front. Want to exclude results from a site, write -xyz.com. Etc.
I do this all the time with Google.
There is a difference between the company making money and the executives getting salary + options. See what happened to Nortel in Canada, company was bled dry to the point of no money left in the disability and pension funds, and executives were giving themselves $200 million bonuses. When there is that much money to suck out of a company, there are plenty of people who see it as viable.
...and the US CBSA routinely denies entry to Canadians who have a criminal record, or *have merely been arrested some time in their life*. And they require a passport for entry to the US, even for Americans. Americans can enter Canada with only a driver's licence but they can't get back into their own country without a passport.
I find it hilarious that Americans are incredulous that some other sovereign country doesn't want criminals crossing their border. The US has been denying criminals entry for a lot longer than 8 years or so...
The US is the only country in the world that taxes out-of-country income of its citizens. For example, Canadians living in the US that have no Canadian income never have to file in Canada.
We ran into an issue a year or two back where Americans that had never worked in the US and had become Canadian citizens were fined $25,000 for not informing the IRS of all Canadian accounts they held worth more than $10,000 US. The only way to get out of the fine is to revoke your US citizenship, but you have to be current with the IRS to revoke citizenship.
Sure, you could ignore the fine as long as you never wanted to visit the US again in your life, or wanted to risk extradition if they went that far.
What a racket.
Uhhh, the trust structure used to validate BitCoins requires listing previous transactions. You bet they know where you got it from (to a certain extent), or they won't accept them as legit. That's the whole point of BitCoin.
