9125mi year long route
 
Has anybody heard about the route you can travel around the country and it is always 70f outside? The route is 9125mi long. That is only 25mi per day. I dont drive but i would be down to car pool. I am a bicycle tourist and eco tourism is usually more energy than just staying home, but i think we can make a difference and have fun. If two people travel only 9125mi intentionally then we travel 12.5 road miles per day at highway efficiency. We just ride from campground to campground (or warmshowers.org host.) I will ride my bike or rollerblade to the grocery store. It would actually be rad if we could get a full car and get road miles down to 6.25. We should make the term "eco-tourism" our word.

I have some ideas for ways that ecomodder.com can sponsor us. Like, a book scanning program. Google does it. We just make book scanners and go to the public library and scan books and news papers with them. I did a huge self contained bike tour by myself and the costs are very small. I read that for every $6 spent in this economy a ton of ice is melted. I did it on food stamps as a form of civil disobedience, like Ghandi, but now they wont give me foodstamps anymore. Eventually, someone just has to support my lifestyle. I ride my bike to the library and read and panhandling is not safe. Too many creepers.

I also had ideas for ways to get plugged into organic farms for sponsorship. We can grow microgreens in flats and sprouts in containers. I even like the idea of growing edible mushrooms in bags, but this was all part of an aero grow trailer. The solar potential changes throughout the route but the temperature is always 70f. We can probably just throw the microgreen flats on top of the trailer to keep the insider cooler for fungus. That way we have our own produce for the market and labor. The possibilities are endless.

I do have a couple experimental mods for you modders. Plug in refrigerated fuel tank. This would be an inexpensive mod and has the potential to improve thermal efficiency of the engine by 15%, but I think we need to test emissions, exhaust gas recycling might be a requirement and maybe even a blower so we aren't blowing unburned fuel. It is a good experiment for this trip. It is always 70f outside; we control the temp of the gas, the temp of the intake, and the temp of the cylinder. It seems like common sense to do. I throw in a plugin block heater for good measure. A production vehicle would pump the heat from the cab and the fuel to the block before you drive it because i knows when you get off work. There is some awesome potential for thermal energy regeneration that way. The paradigm of the thermal energy from the gas going to the block and then being regenerated in the cylinder during combustion is delicious. I want to make a scale experiment on a stand for a more continuous and circular process. There is an extra step in energy conversion vs using the electricty directly for motion, but if the inefficiency is the loss of thermal energy as motion and we are trying to cool the cylinders maybe our inefficiencies are a bonus. Inefficiencies at converting electrochemical to thermal are dependant on mass. The mass of an electric motor and a pump and coolant would be smaller than the mass of a planetary orbital transmission and maybe even smaller than the mass of a hub motor. The scale experiment rocks because i am generally imagining already air cooled motors. Like a moped then an ultralight. Series hybrid ultralight airplane. Thats not accurate, it is series hybrid with parallel hybrid. It makes sense to make a thermally(sound) insulated engine cab for an ultralight. Aerogel and carbon fiber, bro.

The other is much more expensive. A thermal energy recovery aerotail, it is only in concept phase, and I need like $10,000 in parts from Grainger for that. I went to school for automated system design. I will draw up the circuitry for you if you are interested. I am kind of a slug so i dont know about getting grant money from Grainger, but Lab Safety was bought out by em in Janesville, WI. I like this idea because, since it is a thermal energy recovery system, when the vehicle is not in use, which is most of the time, it functions as a solar thermal power plant. Just put the hybrid vehicle up on blocks, take off the wheel and attach a pulley. Evacuated solar tubes are inexpensive technology. When the vehicle is in drive i put the power to a fifth wheel on the right side of the aerotail. I know that improves rolling resistance by 25% but my goal is better than 50% thermal efficiency. Or maybe it is better to just blow that air back up to the front wheels.

I have a supply chain all worked out for hybrid autos, ultralight aircraft, and Tesla Semi truck retail/ potato farms. The Teslas are filled with grow bags and i like to use Watson to control the supply chain by moving produce efficiently to make the most delicious food because Watson is apparently an awesome fusion chef. Then, we invite people to ride their bikes and carpool to our organic food raves at the farm or campground. In Colorado and the west coast we can serve cannabis infused food. We need to encourage people to travel fewer road miles. Eco-tourism. Come chill with us for the weekend and turn off your A/C.

I need help, though. I am unorganized and emotionally scarred. I am sick of being a run away slave. The abusers, my masters, occasionally attempt to recover their property. They describe me as a person with emotional problems. Just as slavers in the past described their slaves by the scars of floggings. Consider these types of contacts to be admissions of guilt by extremely cruel people who enjoy my struggle as a form of entertainment at my expense. I am not Alexander Supertramp, I am White Django.

In Janesville and Waukesha there are conservative magzines, The Gazette and The Freeman. I have spent a lot of time homeless in these communities. Janesville wants to become a cycling community and are hosting a bicycle race for the Tour of America's Dairy Land. This community is organized to keep me as a slave under my abusers for their entertainment and for their political benefit. Mine participating would just be another activity on which the people in my family would waste gas. They already drive hundreds if not thousand of miles per month to swim in a pool. I am sick of my boss and my landlord always being the same person and ****ing me over. I am sick of being an atheist in Christian homeless shelters. I can barely forgive you ****ers much less work with you.

Ive calculated that i personally have burned 250gal of gas in my life and havent burned a single gallon in 8 years. Let me help you reduce by offsetting. The paper is white but the ink is black.

Thanks,
Tyler Dean

If i put a 4 stroke in a box and i am regenerating thermal with air. It would be sweet to make the air suck into the exhaust.

Shorttyd 04-09-2018 02:57 AM

Like jt breathes in and breathes breathes out.

Shorttyd 04-09-2018 03:09 AM

And have a more massive exhaust pipe.

Shorttyd 04-09-2018 03:13 AM

So the tank fills up with exhaust half of the time. And this is all happening inside of a solar powered ice chest.

Shorttyd 04-09-2018 03:19 AM

What if i make it recycle a percentage of the exhausr by doing that and most of it is air?

Shorttyd 04-09-2018 03:20 AM

That means it needs three 4 strokes and we can recycle 33% of the exhaust.

Shorttyd 04-09-2018 03:21 AM

That is unburned fuel.

Shorttyd 04-09-2018 03:36 AM

So, it starts and each engine burns 1x and sucks in 2x. Then, when the tank is full each engine burns 2x and sucks in 1x.

Shorttyd 04-09-2018 03:39 AM

I want to make the exhaust pipes with evacuated tubes just so they are massive.

Shorttyd 04-09-2018 03:41 AM

I can start with it all pre cooled but have little block heaters on the engines.

Did they legalize weed in Wisconsin while I wasn't looking?

You have some interesting ideas. I'm unsure what you mean by a "thermal energy recovery aerotail"--recovering thermal energy from what source, how?

Shorttyd 04-09-2018 03:26 PM

I wanted to recover thermal energy from the engine using brushless air compressors and a few hydraulic over air cylinders to turn a couple air motors. I havent added up the mass, but it is massive. My ideas are kind of based on redundancy because each system succumbs to entropy, but I like to think that they are thusly built for success. I think the brushless air compressors should have WAI under the hood made of evacuated tubes. Maybe slap a heater core up against it. I dont know why cylinders are so expensive. I want to work at the factory that makes them just so I can get some of them. I need 3 tool shop air compressors, i need to make them brushless. I need 6 short stroke cylinders. 3 of them are hydraulic. 3 of them are air. I need a brushless hydraulic pump. The air compressors gas up the air cylinders. The hydraulic cylinders squeeze the air out two rotary vane air motors. I have thought of changing the tool shop compressors out with smaller rotary vane air motors. It all seems goofy but i am heat pumping an engine. Cylinders does not equal tank in this instance. I tried to make the load under 1100w because thats what i heard the DC system is on a prius. I would make the prime mover for the hydraulic system 700w and each of those tool shops can only be like 200w. I was going to add two wheels (more mass and rolling resistance) and 4 rotary vane air motors that just used a belt and free wheels. It would also be nice to have evacuated tubes on the roof for solar gain. Evacuated tubes have a much better efficiency for surface area than PV.

I have a new theory today about 4 lane traffic with skaters. Skaters force traffic to meter itself, but they race to get around me. I want to change the timing of a couple of the lights in town.

Sigmund Freud's view on religion
In Totem and Taboo, published in 1913, Freud analyzes the tendency of primitive tribes to promulgate rules against incest within groups named for totem animal and objects, and to create taboos regarding actions, people and things. He notes that taboos (such as that regarding incest) still play a significant role in modern society but that totemism "has long been abandoned as an actuality and replaced by newer forms". Freud believes that an original act of patricide—the killing and devouring of "the violent primal father" was remembered and re-enacted as a "totem meal...mankind's earliest festival" which was "the beginning of so many things—of social organization, of moral restrictions and of religion".[5] Freud develops this idea further in Moses and Monotheism, his last book, discussed below. He further goes to attribute creation of gods to humans: "...we know that, like gods, [demons] are only the product of the psychic powers of man; they have been created from and out of something."[6]

In An Autobiographical Study Freud elaborated on the core idea of Totem and Taboo: "This view of religion throws a particularly clear light upon the psychological basis of Christianity, in which, it may be added, the ceremony of the totem-feast still survives with but little distortion in the form of Communion."[7]

A Pluralistic Universe by William James
I shall myself have use for the diminutive epithets of empiricism. But
if you look behind the words at the spirit, I am sure you will not
find it matricidal. I am as good a son as any rationalist among you to
our common mother. What troubles me more than this misapprehension is
the genuine abstruseness of many of the matters I shall be obliged
to talk about, and the difficulty of making them intelligible at one
hearing. But there two pieces, 'zwei stcke,' as Kant would have said,
in every philosophy--the final outlook, belief, or attitude to which
it brings us, and the reasonings by which that attitude is reached and
mediated. A philosophy, as James Ferrier used to tell us, must indeed
be true, but that is the least of its requirements. One may be true
without being a philosopher, true by guesswork or by revelation.
What distinguishes a philosopher's truth is that it is _reasoned_.
Argument, not supposition, must have put it in his possession. Common
men find themselves inheriting their beliefs, they know not how. They
jump into them with both feet, and stand there. Philosophers must
do more; they must first get reason's license for them; and to the
professional philosophic mind the operation of procuring the license
is usually a thing of much more pith and moment than any particular
beliefs to which the license may give the rights of access. Suppose,
for example, that a philosopher believes in what is called free-will.
That a common man alongside of him should also share that belief,
possessing it by a sort of inborn intuition, does not endear the man
to the philosopher at all--he may even be ashamed to be associated
with such a man. What interests the philosopher is the particular
premises on which the free-will he believes in is established, the
sense in which it is taken, the objections it eludes, the difficulties
it takes account of, in short the whole form and temper and manner
and technical apparatus that goes with the belief in question.
A philosopher across the way who should use the same technical
apparatus, making the same distinctions, etc., but drawing opposite
conclusions and denying free-will entirely, would fascinate the first
philosopher far more than would the _naf_ co-believer. Their common
technical interests would unite them more than their opposite
conclusions separate them. Each would feel an essential consanguinity
in the other, would think of him, write _at_ him, care for his good
opinion. The simple-minded believer in free-will would be disregarded
by either. Neither as ally nor as opponent would his vote be counted.

Scientific Unity
The topic of unity in the sciences can be explored through the following questions: Is there one privileged, most basic or fundamental concept or kind of thing, and if not, how are the different concepts or kinds of things in the universe related? Can the various natural sciences (e.g.,physics, astronomy, chemistry, biology) be unified into a single overarching theory, and can theories within a single science (e.g., general relativity and quantum theory in physics, or models of evolution and development in biology) be unified? Are theories or models the relevant connected units? What other connected or connecting units are there? Does the unification of these parts of science involve only matters of fact or are matters of value involved as well? What about matters of method, material, institutional, ethical and other aspects of intellectual cooperation? Moreover, what kinds of unity, not just units, in the sciences are there? And is the relation of unification one of reduction, translation, explanation, logical inference, collaboration or something else? What roles can unification play in scientific practices, their development, application and evaluation?

Transactional Leadership
Transactional leadership is a style of leadership that focuses on supervision, organization, and performance; transactional leadership is a style of leadership in which leaders promote compliance by followers through both rewards and punishments. Unlike transformational leaders, those using the transactional approach are not looking to change the future, they look to keep things the same. Leaders using transactional leadership as a model pay attention to followers' work in order to find faults and deviations.
