If I ever won the lottery, my plan is to purchase a private jet, and have it sitting on the runway idling 24 hours a day.

The following isn't about anything environmental, just about my observations from working on, and being around cars since I was about 8 years old. I also did it semi-professionally during various times in my life when I was in high school for a shop.

It was mentioned that idling your engine is worse for your car than starting/restarting it. I believe this is really false. Starting your car is actually one of the harshest things you can do to an engine.

When you start the engine, that is really a bad time for it. That is the most likely time to have bearing surfaces rubbing together without any type of lubrication. It actually takes a second or two for oil to leave the sump, make their way through bearing passages and get to places they need to get to.

In the meantime, you have metals surfaces without oil on them, actually making contact where a coating of oil would normally stop them from making full contact. This is BAD for your engine.

Have you guys ever heard an older car during startup? That is the time when you are more likely to 'hear' metal on metal sounds that will go away after about 2-3 seconds. You can actually HEAR the metal grinding against itself.

Also on the starter motor, they'll usually last forever when cycled 1-2 times per day. But the idea that you would cycle one with the frequency to save from idling in rush hour traffic would really kill them quick. Not that they are an expensive item, but eletric motors are not generally made to be cycled so many times.

Starter motors are very, very high torque, quick spinning devices. They are designed to work really hard for very short durations. Couple that with them not being equipped with any type of counter measures to stave off heat, and you've got a recipe for showing them to a quick grave by cycling them over and over in repeated fashion. They just weren't made to function in that form.

Michael Coffman -- Is a Carbon Currency the Endgame? Part 1

"
Carbon Currency
The idea for a carbon currency has been around since the 1930s under the banner of Technocracy. Technocracy is a world run by scientists and experts, not elected officials. Early proponents of this model even wanted F.D. Roosevelt set up as a dictator, not elected as a president. They claim Technocracy brings economic freedom, but it will actually bring the exact opposite. Financial analyst explains:
Carbon Currency will be based on the regular allocation of available energy to the people of the world. If not used within a period of time, the Currency will expire (like monthly minutes on your cell phone plan) so that the same people can receive a new allocation based on new energy production quotas for the next period. Because the energy supply chain is already dominated by the global elite, setting energy production quotas will limit the amount of Carbon Currency in circulation at any one time. It will also naturally limit manufacturing, food production and people movement.
A carbon currency must depend on a finite supply of fossil fuel so that it can be strictly controlled by technocrats. Since the founding of Technocracy, every generation has been taught the “peak oil” theory; i.e. the world only has “x” number of years before the earth’s oil is depleted. There is a problem with this theory, however. More oil is discovered every year. In fact, enough oil and gas exist in shale oil formations in Colorado, Utah and Wyoming to be energy independent for several hundred years with current technology and oil prices.[1]
This bonanza of energy had to be restricted if carbon currency was to become a reality. That could explain why fear mongering of global warming continues to escalate even when there is no empirical evidence to show that man is causing it. Recent NASA research has clearly shown the climate models grossly overestimate warming. Yet, the hue and cry to reduce CO2 emissions continues to increase. That is exactly what the EPA is doing."

Every moment I wake up I realize I know nothing, and then I smile...

Vietnam Rhino Is Now Extinct, Officials Report
LiveScience.comLiveScience.com – 8 hours ago

saggy dick? kill a rhino

A rhinoceros killed for its horn last year in Vietnam is now considered to have been the last of its subspecies.

Scientists from the World Wildlife Fund reported Monday (Oct. 25) that they and their partners have analyzed the DNA from 22 dung samples collected in Vietnam since April 2010, when the animal was killed, and found that they all belonged to that single rhino, confirming this type of wild Javan rhino is now extinct.

The rhinoceros was found dead in Cat Tien National Park in April 2010 with a bullet in its leg and its horn removed.

Rhino horn

Loss of habitat, combined with poaching for the animals' horns, has driven many Asian rhino species to the brink of extinction, the WWF says. The rhino horn is used in China and Vietnam to treat typhoid fever, convulsions and other disorders after it is ground into a powder and dissolved in boiling water. An upsurge in demand for it in Vietnam has been linked to a rumor that it can also cure cancer, the researchers said.

However, according to the American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine and the Council of Colleges of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, there is no scientific evidence that rhino horn has any medicinal value, the researchers noted.

Endangered rhinos

The Javan rhino, or lesser one-horned rhinoceros, looks similar to the closely related greater one-horned rhinoceros, but it has a much smaller head, a slightly smaller overall size, and looser, less-apparent skin folds, according to the WWF.

The remaining Javan rhino population is confined to fewer than 50 in Ujung Kulon National Park on the Indonesian island of Java, the researchers say. This subspecies of Javan rhino is called Rhinoceros sondaicus sondaicus, while the Vietnamese Javan rhinoceros was referred to as Rhinoceros sondaicus annamiticus.

"For the Javan rhino, we now have to focus entirely on one site in Indonesia, where strengthened protection is needed along with fast-tracking the proposed translocation and habitat management," said Barney Long, the WWF's Asian species expert.

The WWF and its partners plan to evaluate the possibility of translocating rhinos from Ujung Kulon National Park to establish a new population in other habitat over the next few years.

Good trading to everyone.
