Lithium Ion Battery Failures

Sun, 21 Sep 2014 01:52:11 +0000

I’ve had two encounters now with lithium ion batteries that have failed, became thermal runaways, and ended up venting, exploding and catching fire in the process. Believe me, they can release a crap load of noxious gases and smoke in a short amount of time and start a fire rather easily. It’s not an exceptionally [...]

Carbon Credits For The Harman SF-160 Wood Stove

Sat, 20 Sep 2014 13:29:41 +0000

Ok, so what is a carbon credit? Al Gore and his ilk seem to think it’s money snatched out of thin air from what I can tell. Haven’t we already taxed and regulated the power generation and industrial base in this country to the point where it’s become ridiculous? Supposedly this is all in response [...]

The Book Shelf

Tue, 16 Sep 2014 00:18:18 +0000

I don’t use advertizing on the website and web authoring in general is just a hobby, and done as a convenience to myself for the most part. I have however made some good friends and other acquaintances over my years on the web due to my status as a military veteran and of my political [...]

Portable Battery Charger/Loading System

Fri, 08 Aug 2014 20:09:08 +0000

I’d started building this a couple years ago and hadn’t finished the project until recently. It’s basically a high amperage battery charger with a small foot print, lot’s easier to move around than your run of the mill big box chargers. The primary side of the transformer is tapped for 5 charging rates from around [...]

Lindsey Stirling ~ Beyond The Veil

Mon, 05 May 2014 03:16:13 +0000

Another class act is this young lass with a violin. Absolutely some of the best string work I’ve heard in my days anyhow. The new release is called Shatter Me and features Lzzy Hayle providing the vocal tracks. Good stuff indeed…


Joe Satriani – One Robot’s Dream (Live 2006)

One of my all time favorites and posted for my own selfish enjoyment.

ObamaCare Explained: Karl Denninger

Sat, 26 Oct 2013 00:47:15 +0000

Analyst/trader Karl Denninger says Obama Care is doomed to failure because of pre-existing conditions of many signing up for coverage. Denninger explains, “If you are an insurance company and you only sell insurance to those who have already lit their house on fire, you’re not going to be in business very long. You have to [...]

Haha – Another Truth Accident

Sun, 06 Oct 2013 04:36:19 +0000

From Karl Denninger: Oh look what the cat dragged in….

“This population doesn’t understand why insurance is necessary,” Cheryl Smith, a health-exchange specialist at Deloitte Consulting LLP in New York, said in an interview. “It really is to protect your assets. When you’re young, you don’t have assets. You don’t worry about it.”

That’s [...]

The EPA Takes an Ax to Self-Sufficiency: Most Woodburning Stoves Will Soon Be Illegal

Sun, 06 Oct 2013 03:49:38 +0000

Off Grid Survival reports:

Shortly after the re-election of President Obama, the agency announced new radical environmental regulations that threaten to effect people who live off the grid. The EPA’s new environmental regulations reduce the amount of airborne fine-particle matter from 15 micrograms to 12 micrograms per cubic meter of air.

This means that most [...]

Detroit: A Canary in the Coalmine….

Thu, 01 Aug 2013 00:16:11 +0000

Karl Denninger is very good at laying things out in way that most can understand, even if they don’t truly understand economics. Mathematics and those nasty little things called exponents have a way of creating rather huge problems if not kept in check and we’re starting to see it across the board both as a [...]
