I’m Beginning To Hate Hallowe’en

Yep, it’s that time of year… again.

I’m beginning to hate Hallowe’en.  Why?  Let me count the ways.  But first, a little background.  I remember when Hallowe’en was the second biggest celebration of the year – right behind Christmas.  (St. Paddy’s Day doesn’t count ‘cause — it’s “adults only,” and Thanksgiving and Easter are just too family/family/best behaviour type of occasions.)  No, Christmas and Hallowe’en used to be kick-up-your-heels holidays when kids could be kids and adults could be kids, too.  In short — they were fun.  Unfortunately, these days, a sizeable section of our society has declared war on fun — and Hallowe’en is one of the casualties.  The irony is so thick you have to cut it with an axe.  Here are a few examples.

1 – For weeks before October 31st there’s nothing but wall-to-wall butchery on TV.  Folks! Hallowe’en is not the German word for slaughter.  The last night of October…

Equality. How real is it?

One day at a time...

It has been recently announced that the new Doctor Who will be played by a female. Great! Fantastic! Is it? I have no clue; never watched that series; never heard of that actress before; probably will never watch it in the future, either. But the Internet is celebrating as if all the world’s wars came to an end.

For those of you who do not know what “Doctor Who” is all about – the show is about “the Doctor”, who travels the Universe in his time-travelling spaceship, helping different civilizations. The show started in the 1960s, and has since seen 12 different people play the main role. Because the very first “Doctor” started getting sick a few years into the show, the writers decided to write in a story about regeneration through reincarnation, which made it possible for different people to play the same character for years. All of the…

The Plan For The Future

If you intend to give your critics a field day, just mention astrology or numerology in your argument. They may burst out laughing. Numerology is a way to give meaning to events using numbers. Numbers have no meaning, except the number itself. Nevertheless meaningful coincidences may indicate that there is a script. Many of these coincidences could easily have happened by chance, at least if there was chance. And chance can have a dramatic impact.

Chaos theory is about the huge consequences small events can have. An example often used is that the flight of a butterfly may cause a storm that can derail events that were to happen in the future if the storm hadn’t materialised. Just imagine that another sperm fertilised the egg of Adolf Hitler’s mother. There were millions of sperms out there.

The reference to the end date of World War I on Franz Ferdinand’s car might…

How much power do you need?

Is it really a need… or what?
The reality is more likely about convenience and/or comfort.

Living a Simple and Sustainable Lifestyle.

Many people, living modern lifestyles, will use as much as 30KW/h per day, in a few cases even higher than that.  Though how much power do you really need to keep all your modern conveniences?

Truth be told you need a lot less than you think, if you are willing to downsize your living space.  Lets go through everything.

Total Usage (nnKW/h per day):

We will have to include conversion losses.   while some things are 12 volt, and thus minimal conversion losses I still calculate high by calculating inverter loss in with everything.   It is always best to figure high so you will have enough power.   The conversion and transmission losses on solar include (in most cases):

  • Inverter Conversion, about 15%.
  • 18 hours per day from battery, so storage losses 10%.
  • Transmission loss 10%.

So we figure high and say 40% overall loss, thus requiring 1.8 times more production that…
