Re: Arm Training: Killa Pipes

Until I read your post just now, I had completely forgotten about the barbell curl followed by negative chins to failure protocol. My pops suggested I do that exact superset back in the early 90's. He suggested 2 seconds up and 4 seconds down for the barbell curls and slow negatives on the negative...

Re: Arm Training: Killa Pipes

Two things work well for me. Done on different days. 3 sets chins AMRAP (long rest periods) 2 to 3 sets of standing barbell curls in the 6-8 rep range, close to failure, followed immediately by negative chins to failure (old Nautilus stuff). (long rest periods) There's an assumption here you can do ...

Re: Compact Fusion Reactor

One other thing I've always wondered is why there's never been a big push to pursue Thorium fission reactors. The liquid salt reactors that use Thorium as the fissile material are apparently a c hair away from being melt down proof. If they overheat, the liquid salt expands to the point that the fi...

Re: Compact Fusion Reactor

Cheap solar isn't all that cheap nor particularly impactful and will never have the impact of a fieldable fusion system. Not even close.

Re: Compact Fusion Reactor

There's not doubt such a result would epochal. What I referred to above reference a Technology Readiness Level (TRL) of 9 means it is full in production. The program described in the PM article is only going to produce TRL 5 or maybe 6. That's just for the reactor. Converting into electricity is ano...

Re: Compact Fusion Reactor

My office and lab were across the hall from the tokamak group. Great guys to chat physics with. Hard time getting grad students to sign-up. Thirty years ago, that sort of research seemed like a good way to throw away a career before it started.

Re: Compact Fusion Reactor

Bob Guccione. $20M. Nowhere enough to fund such an undertaking. Especially in the early 80's when the technology was infantile in comparison. There was the idea of a compact tokamak. One of the scientists involved, Coppi, later joined the MIT physics department. There's a compact tokamak at MIT for ...

Re: Compact Fusion Reactor

MIT. Where would be without you.

Typical of Popular Mechanics and it's ilk, article is a bit optimistic. Much has been learned about fusion in programs like LLNL's NIF so the base technology is pretty well understood. Going to TRL 9, little bit more difficult.

Re: What to make of the election?

No idea whether they joined peaceful protests, whether they thought it was worth their time, were in a position to do it if they so chose or any other of the myriad variables. It's not germane, either. They'd have to believe the level and extremity of violence being visited upon cities nationwide wa...

Re: What to make of the election?

This is pretty clear. Group of ex military guys who haven't adjusted. Not happy with that they see as governors not fixing the problems of urban unrest. They can't wait to "tune up" the looters and rioters. That's not okay. What's not okay? That they haven't adjusted well. Most I know, recently hom...

Re: What to make of the election?

"White" is a concept created when ethnic euro urban catholics were cleansed from the cities by eastern seaboard WASPs and Jews. "Whites" are the victims of Elite WASP and Jewish ethnic animus. And if you know those groups, it becomes clear that they did it increase returns on usury. I originate fro...

As I understand it, Billy the Kid was invited to this dealership to help protect it from rioters. Adjacent dealerships had already been burned, and the owner invited folks onto his property to help protect it. Now, assuming for a moment that this is true, was what the kid was doing actually "open c...

Re: What to make of the election?

Legal question, since as SPELLS pointed out, I'm just not that bright: is it open carry if you're carrying it on private property you were invited on to by the owner? Generally you can do what you want on private property in terms of possession (still can't brandish). Only exception is if there's a...

Re: What to make of the election?

The law is super-clear and he was clearly outside it. 18 to open carry. He's not 18. Yes. He committed a misdemeanor. For which he should be attacked by a lawless mob, some in the commission of felonies and also unlawfully possessing firearms. And should have no right to defend himself as a result....
