    Posted By: TrimHave you tried Viagra or hypnosis?
    Anyone notice that the price of legitimate Viagra has increased markedly recently? Much more than the price of gold. What significance has this? Would one call it "inflation"?

    I hadn't noticed. I'm still working on hypnosis, but it's hard to get them not to giggle when I spin my pocket watch in front of their eyes.

    Posted By: joshsGasoline is amazingly safe stuff for its energy density. If one pumps electricity 15kWh electricity into something in one minute, then at constant power which is optimistic that is 900kW. Even just 10% loss is 90kW waste heat in the wiring and batteries. That's enough to be very concerned about.


    Sorry to wind back a bit but..

    It's also not the sort of thing you can do at home. It's likely quite high voltages will be needed to get the current down to managable levels. Interlocks will be needed. Imagine driving off with the power connected @-)

    Ten minute phone charger.

    Ten-minute charge makes battery spectacle at CEATEC
    Roy, the battery that charges at twice the rate burns twice as fast.

    Then there is the issue of installing a blast wall in the garage.

    I think from appx $10 per tablet to almost $20. I've seen one pharma supply catalog recently that listed it at $800 for 30 tabs. Problem is, some companies have adopted Amazon's superweirdo method of using software systems to choose prices based on whatever the traffic will bear. The pharma catalog I saw was on a web site -- it was a reputable company and not one that sells to the public over the net -- but some prices on other things seemed absurd as well. I suppose one could call them...

    If it lasts longer than 4 hours, see your doctor.

    I thought it was a conserved quantity. You would have to project hate at somebody else's boat as well. When everybody does it, on the average it statistico-magically all works out to roughly what we see every day anyway.

    Judging by the number of barnacles on the bottom of boats, I'd say that there's a preponderance of hate projection going on.
