Work = Force X Distance. So obviously it takes more force to drive
faster in a car, and the same distance is traveled regardless of how
fast you are going. So if we reduce the speed limits we will save
money and gas!!!!

So do you really believe that as speed approaches zero that your mileage
will approach infinity?

Yes, it does if you adapt the engine accordingly.
Most cars have too big engines to work efficiently even at 90 km/h.
8-cylinder engines are bad! One cylinder is optimal.

Somewhat OT, I was looking into who makes small stirling engines, say
about 1KW, yesterday, and none of the websites I found had any
information about buying them, all just saying how wonderful they are.
No price lists or anything.

Stirling people are a strange bunch.

Along the same line, there is a really long advertisement every night
on cable TV featuring, mostly, two young ladies with deep cleavage
telling me if I send in $35, I will soon start receiving $1000 checks
and $500 checks (the word "checks" is used a lot, leading me to believe
that even if I were to receive one, it would be worthless), apparently
for convincing people to do something (send in $35, maybe?). It's not
clear to me from the ad what I am supposed to do or sell or demo or
whatever, but I usually watch the ad until the ladies are replaced by
The Intense Young Man (I don't know his name, but a few years ago he
was intensely telling everyone they could make money with real estate
if they sent him some money) comes on. Then I switch to Kevin Trudeau
or the colon clenaser people.


You watch WAY too much TV.

Is that your excuse? As far as your "Horde" being effective, they
don't worry about things like the Geneva convention or who they kill, so
they have no place in modern combat.

The Israeli forces currently attacking the Lebanon seem quite happy to bomb and

Because Europe has already cornered the market for putting despots,
dictators and megalomaniacs in power?

Scarcely. Chile had Pinochet, Uganda had Idi Amin, Cuba had Batista,
Dominica had Trujillo. Pakistan has Musharraf. At the moment Europe
can't claim a single despotic meglomaniac, though the CIA is probably
working on finding a sympathetic right-thinking general somewhere
around here to set things back to (far) rights.

Where would Hilter have been without Henry Ford's generous support,
after all.

From the look of things, it would have only slowed Hitler down a
little, but that Nazi would have still started his war.

You're trying to justify killing civilians ( on very questionable grounds too ) and
it doesn't wash. If Israel expects to be treated as a civilised entity it should
damn well behave better.

I think I can confidently say those Canadians who were killed weren't Hezbollah
supporters or apologists.

Calling me anti-Semitic is both cheap and entirely wrong. Nor an I even anti-Zionist.
Indeed I'm a long-term supporter of the Jewish State. I am however entitled ( as anyone
with a conscience should ) to object to the current actions of the Israeli military.

It's become increasingly fashionable for those without a credible case to hide behind
cheap 'anti-ism' claims and you for one should know damn well better.

This is the same sentiment that has kept us in Iraq for 14 years.
We fought in Iraq so Israel wouldn't have to.
Now that the Israelis have started a holy war anyway, we should come
home. We can buy our oil from the winner.
