Well of course carbon Gillard's tax will work! It will bring millions, possibly billions into the coffers of (which country?) she is running into the ground. It's all about the revenue enhancement...

The carbon tax brought in $15 Billion during the 2 years it was in force, and 10% was given to the UN ($1.5 Billion).
This jacked up power bill's enormously, cost thousands of jobs in Australia, and closed many big factories permanently.

OK, I'm an asshole. I watched the clip and laughed my butt off! Come on, girlfriend, you've got the resources- one good prank deserves another. Something really fiendish...

Drones don't go looking for naked titties, men, boys, and lesbians do.

Thank you for the frank review. I've got a strong prescription myself, and tight bridge and interpupil dimensions, ie- hard to fit... Been studying the Frames Direct website, this will be the first ones online.

As crashes go, I'd call that a fender bender. And operator error. If you think this is tough, try racing in the BTCC...

"I'm just a detectorist, sluicer, panner, pretender...". Yeah, ain't we all. Pines, oaks, grasslands, and manzanita, looks like schistose amphibolite @ 7:33, I'm guessing 1500-2000 ft elevation. Man that looks a lot like the Spenceville area. Good hunting!

After tangling with a couple of climate hysterics on this comments section, it's time to define the real battlefield. I am not a climate change denier. Any student of pre-history, especially the Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous periods can see that there were 3 different mass extinction events, caused by climate change. What I deny is that there is some mystical "stable " climate that we can achieve simply by reducing our Co2 emissions. The climate has never been stable, and never will be. Anyone claiming that reducing Co2 emissions will "stabilize" the climate is either stone stupid or has a hidden agenda. The climate has always been changing and always will, no matter what the hysterics think. We would be far better served by accepting this obvious fact and learning how to adapt to anticipated changes. The problem is that this simple common sense concept doesn't sit well with the real estate moguls who built billion dollar structures too damned near the oceans, or the "new progressive" cartel (as brilliantly represented by little barry), who will use any "crisis" they can find or create to control every aspect of our lives down to the last little detail.

Oh good god, I thought racing motorcycles was difficult! This looks like the most fun anyone could have outside of the bedroom ...

"Why do I do things the hard way all the time?". Hell, any damned fool can do things the easy way...

About maps, especially the geologic variety. I spent a lot of fruitless hours searching the net for anything coherent released by this idiot state or it's UC system. Finally found something useful. A while back the head librarian at Texas A&M found an old moldering book titled the Geologic Atlas of the United States. Before it  disintegrated, she scanned the whole thing into (I think, it's been a while) JPEG's, and put them in the public domain..Then a Sactown outfit acquired the sections that cover the motherlode strip, and organized them onto a CD, the Sierra Nevada Folios. As these maps were hand drawn, 100 or more years ago, they were drawn for economic geology use, and show stuff that just ain't on newer maps. Since mountains, rivers, and towns don't move much and change names even less, I use them to cross ref to modern topo maps.  Author recommends IrfanView to view, folios, it works well.

Good channel. Got a technical question. I'm designing my own auto alarm/deterrence system based on the Arduino Uno chip set. Thinking of a 3 level system. The third level, highly proactive, I'm really not comfortable discussing here. It involves payback for illegally breaking my windshield or forcing a door open. First level would be the usual beep-beep triggered from about 5 ft. from my vehicle. Second level, too damned close to my truck, is where I'm researching options, including Hella electric horns (118 db), and air powered truck and train horns (130-150db). I'm wondering about a set of really strong speakers, generating, as loud as possible, a signal in a frequency range chosen to cause maximum "mental stress"  to the human hearing system. Deep ultra base ain't gonna cut it, I'm not looking to get a cutie to cream her jeans. I'm thinking of a setup that would make "nails on a chalkboard" sound like kittens purring gently. This setup isn't intended for city use, I don't want to give some poor civilian a heart attack. This is going to be employed at trail heads, out in the middle of f'ing nowhere, it's a popular location for Cali low life gutless punks to break into decent peoples vehicles. It's happened twice to me. I intend to prevent a 3rd incident. Already looked into the military LRAD setup, nobody's talking. Any advice or suggestions as to speaker type or frequency range would be greatly appreciated.
