Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

"Homemade Batteries
Any liquid or moist object that has enough ions to be electrically conductive can be used to make a battery. It is even possible to generate small amounts of electricity by inserting electrodes of different metals into potatoes, lemons, bananas, or carbonated cola. A voltaic pile can be created using two coins and a paper dipped in salt water. Stacking multiple coins in a series can results in an increase in current."

You are a glorified rutabaga.
And a not very artful dodger.
I can buy 10 AAs for 6.99 at Home Depot.

Saves me the trouble of dipping things in salt water. Plus, a potato won't fit into my vibrator.

This man was one of the more inspirational people of the last many decades.
It is quite obvious the quality of his physical existence could have been better. He was dealt a bad hand from the beginning.
But it produced one of the sweetest songs of all time.
A Topix atheist would just get more bitter with time. Making themselves and those around them miserable.
If you say so, boss.

Most women take being called that as a compliment nowadays. It's like, cool, wanna see what kind of b!tch I am?
Girls revel in quizzes designed to find out what kind of b!tches they are, apparently there are 90 popular different kinds and a female can be a combination of several or just one.

We should start burning the people who go to Disney World in August. Do you have any idea how hot it gets in that Mickey suit?

Oh, and aborted fetuses, gay people and whoever voted for Obama.

I bet on the Euro import, Willy Finnish.

Next time I'm going with a sponsored one, like Always with Wings.

That horse could fly, for about one week out of the month.

The big problem has been using the raw power of electricity instead of mechanical leverage over the years. The emphasis has been on making more powerful motors, not finessing the mechanical assembly in consumer products. Such as air conditioning, power tools, vacuum cleaners, and even kitchen mixers. There have been improvements in the efficiency of such devices from new material technologies, but the trying to compact such raw power into the smallest space and portability combined with increased population and use of such products is what increases the demand. And the heat.

In the USA the use of 120v also doubles the current used in devices compared to 240v. That current, amperage, is THE demand on the electrical system. That is what generating systems produce. Voltage is just how you get it it distributed.

BTW, the artificial redirection of that current by technology also changes our EM signature in relation to the rest of the universe. We aren't following the natural flow, but fighting it.
