3/8     "Invisible Mercedes brings James Bond technology to life"
        http://www.csua.org/u/vpc (autos.yahoo.com)
        How many years and dollars have our military spent on trying to achieve
        the same thing and yet still haven't gotten any result!?  Now a
        civilian company has done it, and they did it even merely for
        publicity.

        'Russia's largest circulation newspaper, Komsomolskaya Pravda, ran a
        headline on July 31 that asked, "Is the Russian heat wave the result
        of the USA testing its climate weapon?" The daily's answer was "Yes,
        probably."'
        Yeah, let us use our climate weapon on the California climate so that

10/5    Make sure to watch The Crumbling of America on History today! America's
        infrastructure is collapsing. Tens of thousands of bridges are
        structurally deficient or functionally obsolete. A third of the
        nation's highways are in poor or mediocre shape. Massively leaking
        water and sewage systems are creating health hazards and
        contaminating rivers and streams.

4/26    We keep hearing every year about how gas prices are higher because
        of reduced refinery capacity caused by everything from Katrina to
        fire and power outages. When it happens every year, it's not
        unusual and I'm inclined to believe these are lies. Why do market
        analysts continue to repeat these lies?

3/23    What exactly is heavy water, how do you get it, and how does it
        produce the bomb? I keep hearing about Iran and heavy water but
        I have no chemistry fu and I don't understand how you can magically
        turn water molecules into the bomb.
        \_ Heavy water is D2O instead of H2O.  What is "D"?  It's just
           hydrogen with an extra neutron in it.  D2O has less neutron

           I wonder how cost effective it will be.

3/11    GE may have figured out a cheaper way of making H2:

        \_ I'm amazed the manufacturing of the aparatus has that much
           effect on the cost to generate the hydrogen.
        \_ Umm.. how much energy does 1kg of H have vs 1 gal of gasoline?
           I would suspect the gasoline has much more.

        a JFK. Anyways, Bush vowed to increased R&D by 22% to use alternative

11/28   Which one is more efficient?
        1. Use electricity to generate hydrogen and burn it in a fuel-cell car.
           \_ this is a very very inefficient process.  Only country such as
              Iceland where geothermal energy is plentiful can they afford
              to do this.  Here is a lesson for energy:  The key for many

The invisibility cloak had its tryout this week on the streets of Stuttgart, Germany. To make Q's idea of an invisible car real, Mercedes employed dozens of technicians and some $263,000 worth of flexible LED mats covering one side of the car. Using a camera mounted on the opposite side of the vehicle, the LEDs were programmed to reproduce the image from the camera at the right scale, blending the vehicle into the background from a few feet away. Doing so required power sources, computers and other gear totaling 1,100 lbs. F-Cell hydrogen fuel cell powered car would be invisible to the environment, producing only water vapor and heat for emissions. Charlottesville, Virginia o 4 hours ago My invisible Mercedes is sitting in my invisible McMansion's garage next to my invisible super-model wife's invisible Porsche. New York, New York o 4 hours ago The invisivility technology has been here long time ago. My salary raise has been invisible for the past ten years. Cranbury, New Jersey o 4 hours ago Germans have cool stuff. I am e-mailing them now to ask if they could please make the Kardashitcans and Snookie invisible so I don't have to see them ever again. Southfield, Michigan o 4 hours ago once you buy the car you never have to make another car payment, the repo man would never be able to find it, HA, take that Mercedes finanicial!
