Deep Thoughts by DUpipo

You just can't make this up.  If respiration were not an involuntary function these people would suffocate. 
 
How come there aren't any battery operated generators?

Last edited Tue Sep 11, 2018, 07:53 AM - Edit history (1)

People who live in apartment buildings can't have generators because they need to be outside. I wish someone would come up with a battery operated generator for indoor use. It could even save lives.

ETA: It seems that I wasn't clear enough in my post. I'm talking about battery powered generator too replace gas-powered ones

One has to wonder if publik edukation is responsible for this, maybe it can be blamed on Home Skoolin' or inbreedin'?  How 'bout Liberal Arts and Wyomen's studies majors?   DUpipo, How can this not be a total spoof on DU?  :rotf:
Should one a man of wisdom meet
who points out faults and gives reproof,
who lays a hidden treasure bare,
with such a sage should one consort.
Consorting so is one enriched
and never in decline.

It seems DUpipo "lunamagica" has never heard of a UPS ("Uninterruptable Power Source", not the package delivery/destruction service).

Yet another liberal arts failure.  The Chemistry required to extract electrons from a static reaction compared to
known rotation of magneto force is like a tsar bomba  compared to a squirrel cage rabbit farting.

Please don't go back to school and just marry someone smart...male, female or chimp.

15. Here is what you can do.

Get several deep cycle batteries.

Have them on a charger so they have a full charge when the power drops.

Have an inveter to rub essential 110v equipment and also a connection with several car style 12v outlets to let you charge phones, tablets etc with your batteries.

To recharge you can either use solar if you have exposure or you can take the batteries to your car, hook them to it with jumper cables and run the car to charge. Then take your batteries back inside.

17. caution

Be careful about hydrogen outgassing from flooded lead acid batteries. If you use this type of battery, you need ventilation and NO sparks.


Shut UP Prog!   :rant:  Zip it.

This will probably be a disappointment, but if UPS companies still use lead-acid batteries, I think they are sealed.

Yeah, the hydrogen generation from charging lead-acid batteries is a real problem...if you're in a WWII-era Diesel-electric submarine.

I would suggest that the OP just daisy chain a bunch of D-Cells together and wire them to his circuit breaker panel. That should help.
Man’s greatness is so obvious that it can even be deduced from his wretchedness, for what is nature in animals we call wretchedness in man, thus recognizing that, if his nature is today like that of the animals, he must have fallen from some better state which was once his own.
