Sulfur Hexafluoride would work. It's heavy and thich and settles low, so it would stay put. It conducts heat well (citation needed) and insulates voltage much better than air. Unfortunately it's extremely expensive and I dunno about the ozone depletion/global warming potential.
>>I pay my taxes in full, not because I believe it's morally right, but because I understand the consequences of disobeying coercive authority.
>You must be religious...
That was a TOTAL non sequitur. Religious people do things because they're morally right. Well, all the ones I know anyhow.
Any idiot can squash grapes. Bier making is an art, and a science. Well, I'm not talking about Bud Lite, that's just a science. Disclaimer: I'm Flemish-American.
I tried Wine, but prefer Play On Linux.
Oh, you must have an HP printer. 300 MB of trashy GUIs, drivers and ????ware.
Lots easier on Linux. "System settings->Printers->New". Click. "Print test page?"
That's the problem with apathy. Nobody cares.
Like we buy everything else?
I prefer to vote for engineers, if possible.
^- Exactly. I'm not the type who has to ramble on all day. I don't need a mobile at work, I don't have coverage at home (got a land line anyhow), it peeves people when it goes off at church, restaurant, theater; and it's illegal (and dangerous) in the car, despite everyone else and the cops being on the horn while driving, talking about nothing.
The number of people isn't that significant. But they drive more than they did 200 years ago.
Back in the seventies, they told us a new ice age was coming.
640 Kilohours is about right.
Just don't say "free". Because free stuff is obviously worthless; you get what you pay for.
Americans don't know how to drive.
I get 30 MPG in my 2005 Focus automatic. But my 5 speed Neon got 40.
