You think we pay for a lot for gas? What about aircraft carriers? An aircraft carrier gets about 6 inches per gallon of fuel!!!

As much as 80% of microwaves from mobile phones are absorbed by your head. (we're all going to die of cancer now)

Nuclear ships are basically steamships and driven by steam turbines. The reactor just develops heat to boil the water. (Interesting)

another interesting fact, the walls that raise on a carrier to protect the crew from the jet blast when a plane is taking off is made of concrete, if it was made out of steel it would melt

I agree, this forum is going down hill, and I don't think without a major change in how things work, its going to fix either

I hope we can get it sorted out, Kage. I agree that this forum is going downhill, and it seems like very few people care.

There are a few members on here that are worthwhile, but then for every one of them, there are about 5 who don't know a d**n thing.

No offense to anyone that comes here to ask a question, you guys deserve all the help we can give you. I would appreciate it if more of you remained active, though.
