    Yeah, I doubt it could be done today but the teacher yelling at me worked. I think back to that time and I still get a chill down my spine.

    Ditto! Conventional fires can be suppressed/retarded if any of the three elements is removed. I believe battery fire is a different animal in itself.

    From what I've heard, it makes me start to believe in the good old saying "it's who you know, not what you know" about Tesla business.

    It also seems Musk has a pretty good grip on how to promote shiny objects to people predisposed to be in love with the newest gadget.

    I am not a fan of acronyms either; however, I think I can spell out every word for the capital letters above, except not being sure if my interpretation matches the author's. :rofl:
    Happy thanksgiving everyone!

    Off to a family gathering today. It will be a blast. Younger ones are filtering into the gatherings now, realizing that some of us may not be here forever. SOP
    Yesterday, a TV news geek was asking people why they were flying during a holiday rush. Most said gas prices were too high. Stupid question deserves a stupid answer, I suppose.

    I will let you know how it turned out. The WSM is fired up and coming up to temp. Time to truss and inject the turkey. I will admit the dry brine will take some getting used to doing. This is my first attempt.

    Greasing the palms of politicians will get you anything you desire. I need to ask some astronomy friends of mine how this was allowed to happen. The astronomy community is pretty upset.

    Happy Thanksgiving. Our dinner is getting smaller. My sister is not feeling well and will not be able to come to dinner. Everyone have a great day with family and friends.

    Kurt the dry brine sure does make the turkey look different, but it still feels the same.

    Web resources suggest they'll have maybe a 5yr lifespan before de-orbiting. Reminds me, I have pretty good viewing here in farm country. I need to load up an app that will tell me if and when various satellites are viewable. I also need to get the telescope out of it's boxes...
    A happy and healthy Thanksgiving to all. :burnrubber:
