Yep` when the Pa. governor to be was running he said he had to look into the NG frack drilling before he could ever go along with it, the day after the election he gave it the ok so that he could get tax revenue. So there goes a lot of Pa.s drinking water supply & the jury is still out as to what else its gonna ruin.

why don't they bring back the 150-200 MPG carberator . thats old tech. that i think the oil companies bought . if obama the ruler cared about the planet he would go into the u.s. patent office and take the design and give it to GM . people would line up around the corner to buy them . but he only cares about unions and redistribution of wealth .

That carb never was, thats why its not around. Even if it was why didn`t Bush, Clinton, Bush & so on do anything? There are a lot of things that most expect a President to do that aren`t within their powers, congress makes the law & a President either signs it or he can veto it & the veto can be over ridden.

Yes, President Obama, like every president since I first heard about this carburetor half a century ago, is leaving it buried in the patent office. Or is it possible no such patent exists, and the carburetor is just another urban legend? But that's no fun, because we would rather believe in magic, and because it is one less thing to blame President Obama for.

Your right about the unicorn tears for fuel, but unicorns being such a happy lot it was almost impossible to get them to tear. Until recently when being responsible & knowledgeable unicorns they were informed of the Republicans choice of house leader & the chance of Jeb Bush running in 2012, that brought the unicorns to uncontrolable tears thus saving the countries energy crisis.

Think as you wish but its even spreading to the alpaccas now & believe me those are not sobs of joy, all night long, I can barely get any sleep. In fact just the thought of another in the Bush dynesty is causing me to tear so I can hardly see the keyboard. Think of it this way, how long has the country been going in the wrong direction (except for about 2%) and for what % of those decades has there been a Bush as either Pres. or V.P.?

We can only hope ...

I just realized that WSherrick posted the electric one & not the Doble steamer .... :doh: So here's the Doble ... This thing is amazing!!

Must be nice to have the dough to own #4 out of the 4 left running in the entire world! :shock:

I apologize for the damn commercials ... :mad:

Wow! That is simply amazing! :!: It doesn't take an engineer to appreciate a Doble, but being one sure helps. I continue to be amazed at the sophistication of steam power developed back then - both for heating/industrial uses as well as motive power. Even more amazing is little more than 40 years later we were standing on the moon.

Not to get off on a soapbox tangent here, but in 1937 the hot ticket for travel was the "new" DC-3. In 1967 it was the Saturn V rocket. 30 years. I am 41 - born shortly after Neil Armstrong was standing in the Sea of Tranquility. I don't dispute the fact that there have been some amazing technological advances made in the past 30 years - Ma Bell and rotary phones? Today's smart phones were unthinkable back then. But all of today's electronic wizardry is just the same basic components made smaller and smaller - nothing really groundbreaking - just continued refinements. It is all above MY head, that's for sure. I play with vacuum tubes. Those I can understand. :roll:

I just don't see any huge breakthroughs of technology outside of electronics in my life so far, even though electronics have permeated every part of our existence and made so many things easier, safer, more convenient. But essentially, our transportation devices haven't changed, we still heat with coal :lol: , and after driving little dune buggies around on the moon 40 years ago where have we gone? Nowhere. As the USA further and further shifts it's manufacturing base overseas and the corporate "fat cats" continue to run our remaining companies based on lining the shareholders (and their own) pockets at the expense of the average worker (and real engineering), we will continue to slide down the hill of technical talent until we (completely) become a society of lazy, uneducated socialists looking for the next government handout. :box:

I get the sense that things might be starting to turn around - companies are FINALLY figuring out that low cost countries are NOT low cost in the end. We sourced wire harnesses from China - a move that was going to save a couple hundred grand. But, instead, the quality was so sketchy that we had people inspecting them 100% and that went on for a year. On paper, our sourcing department did good, but as a company we lost our ass - and that never shows up on the books because those costs are buried so far down. I've run across this same thing at almost every company I've been at and they never learn.

I wonder why there has yet to be some type of box connected to an electric car that has a setup inside it much like a wind mill does where the air flowing from the car moving would turn the fan's blades and charge the cars batteries so the car would virtually be powering it's self. The only time the car wouldn't be producing energy is when it's not moving and at that point it would just use the energy stored inside the batteries. Of course the box would have to have a type of door control on it that would move to keep the air flowing at just the right speed to maximize the output from the fan. But you could essentially keep driving the car for as many miles as you wanted since there would be no set limit.
