Thats nice, you tried to change the laws of physics and failed?

Find a wive and tell your tale.

The laws of physics wont change just because of you or the web.

They are fixed and rigid.

Sorry. find some one more gullible and less educated?

Think of it as a rite of passage - kind of like running the psycho gauntlet. By being logical and resolute yet refraining from name calling and baiting, you proved yourself to be a member of the community in good standing.

by the way, I believe the algorithm looped again.

Reality is a bitch, or the committee as some say.

And then you learn something if your mind is not blocked like soo many here. Up to you.

Philba, thanks again,

I was getting a little wary about halfway through the recent baptism by fire Several times I checked the URL to make sure I was at the right place and hadn't been redirected, to outer space!

Get a good publisher and try to rewrite your own physics book?

Good Luck, you will need Philba’s with that sort of ignorance.

Education is only tough when you have to toss aside your Clique and their ignorance, which is why soo few actually make it to college.

They would rather be happy and secure, than smart.

Welcome to the Clique, Len......Think of Chris as that eccentric uncle who always shows up at the holidays... no, think of him as Cousin Eddie....without the humor.

Welcome aboard!

I have lots of humor here.

Shall I make a list of their names?

The clique is just full of jokes and laughter, but very little formal education to back their stories up.

BUT,...It’s the Best story ever for any party, bar none.

Almost as funny as how to make a bang.
Do it improper, any wive will tell you.

Hi guys,
....and thanks for the warm (or was it hot) welcome!

Earlier I was really wondering what was going on, but the reality checks, and looking over some previous posts, now make the vision quite clear.

Tis a funny thing how dangereous a little education can be!
Sorry if any one person takes offense.

One fact that didn't make it into the previous posts is the explosive range for a hydrogen-oxygen mixture. Mixtures between 15 and 90 percent hydrogen by volume are explosive. Only the extremes are non-explosive.

The gas mixture produced by the electrolysis of water is 2 parts hydregen to 1 part oxygen, or 67 percent hydrogen by volume. This is well within the explosive range.

Any gas which accumulates within empty space within a battery will probably be an explosive mixture. It is unlikely to be diluted by external air, and will explode as soon as a spark occurs. The gas vented out of the battery will have to be diluted by 4 or 5 times its volume of air to bring the mixture below the explosive level. Keeping the battery in an enclosed space or sealed container will make it difficult for this dilution to take place, and result in a potentially explosive mixture outside the battery as well.

But did you learn anything yet, and no, avoiding the truth or becoming Philba’s wife doesn’t count.

Science and physics does, so now its up to you to learn and read the physics and science books, [and yes, you can say your sorry] and do give up the cliques.

Ignorance is unacceptable unless your running for office.
