What’s the matter Unca? You don’t think our founding fathers were well-endowed? I’d disagree...clearly they all had MASSIVE balls to publicly tell the King to go fark himself....in writing....and sign their name to it.

This confirms that there should be a basic competency test to be licensed to vote.

Our material prosperity has enabled stupid people to eat and therefore live long enough to breed more stupid people. 150 years ago you couldn't survive and be stupid.

Think Diesel Electric trains, Diesel Locomotives use electricity to drive forward motion despite the name 'diesel'. A large diesel engine turns a shaft that drives a generator which makes electricity. This electrical energy powers large electric motors at the wheels called 'traction motors'. Most efficient use of diesel and the car doesn't haul around the generator.

Think Diesel Electric trains, Diesel Locomotives use electricity to drive forward motion despite the name 'diesel'. A large diesel engine turns a shaft that drives a generator which makes electricity. This electrical energy powers large electric motors at the wheels called 'traction motors'. Most efficient use of diesel and the car doesn't haul around the generator.
Most efficient use is direct drive. They only do this on trains because 1) It overcomes the neccessity of a complex transmission to get such a heavy load moving, and 2) A train moves at constant speed when underway.
On a smaller scale, it takes a 14 HP engine to run a generator to power a 2HP well pump motor. Try doing it with less.
Sorry for thread drift.
