Natural Gas Main Explosion Today in Philadelphia

January 18th, 2011

As reported on Channel 5 News in NYC, there was a natural gas main explosion this evening in the Tacony section of Philadelphia, PA. No doubt, as these systems are in most of the rest of the country, I’m sure the reason for the explosion will be attributed to an antiquated gas main system and/or components. As of the time of the report, it appears that the explosion likely killed at least one individual.

I don’t know how many times I need to suggest such until the governments of our land ever seem to care or listen:


One has to wonder how many more innocent lives will be lost as a result of our aging and crumbling infrastructure systems before our inept governments become inclined to do anything about the miserable state of our infrastructure systems.

Why No Free Internet Access Over the Power Lines By Now?

January 13, 2011

So, why isn’t there free access to the internet via the electrical power lines to date? The technology has been available for some time by now and is reportedly being used in certain areas of the country. With such technology, one merely needs to plug a computer compatible with such technology into any electrical outlet and….BAMM!! … you are on the internet and ready to surf. So, why hasn’t the government made this technology available to everyone?

Is free access to the internet over the electrical power lines not available because:

A. The electrical utilities, internet companies, and governments can not decide how to divvy the resulting profits (utilizing power lines which were, and are, paid for by the taxpayers)?

B. The powers that be do not want, potentially, to put the internet provider companies out of business?

C. The powers that-be do not want the economically underprivileged to have the ability to educate themselves because they want a potentially steady pool of ignorant individuals to round up to send off to fight wars? (Even though people are no longer needed to fight wars, in reality.)

D. Some unknown combination of all of the above choices?

Perpetual Motion Machine to Possibly Generate Electricity.

January 13th, 2011

I think I have devised a perpetual motion machine. What’s more, I think the device could generate electricity as well. Though, to be honest, others may have made the same claim in the past and may have done so with a similar design – I’m not sure at this point in time. But I believe any previous design to this end was probably somewhat different than what I have planned for my design. Then again, time will tell what the eddy current losses have to say as well as those that may have a vested interest against anyone having a potential source of free electricity.

I’ll let you know; Lord willing, that is. :)
