Default Re: Higher RPM Range

Really, dude. You should lay-off the weed when you're at work. If you knew half as much about motion and inertial-dynamics as you claim, you should know this stuff.



I'm an IDIOT. I am not kidding you - and I know more of the "how" and "why" of Internal Combustion and Otto-cycle Engine-theory than you.



If you'd like to expand your knowledge-base, I recommend you start with Internal Combustion Engine Fundamentals by John B. Heywood (ISBN: 007028637X). It's pricey, at probably over $100.00 for a well-used copy.



If you look in Boeing's Library, you'll probably find 2 or 3 copies of it, though. Check out Machinery's Handbook while you're there. I don't know what Edition they're up to, mine is a very beatup 21st Ed., and is likely a bit behind. Also, I must confess to not understanding everything presented within it's pages; I just don't have enough Math knowledge to make use of it all.

I listened to Phil back when he was in Florida on WIOD. Nothing like being 21, working for a porn company, drinking whiskey, and listening to Phil Hendrie all day.

As a gay man and a gay journalist, I agree.

Default Re: 2007 Buell Lightning XB12STT

My dog kept humping the neighbor-lady every time she'd work outside in her garden. She complained most vociferously, so I did everything I could to keep that boy at home - first a "training collar", then a chain, then a fence - nothing kept him at home. Finally, I took him and had his nuts clipped-off. That did the trick.



Two days later, my neighbor called me up and cursed at me - all she really wanted was for me to bathe him, get his toenails clipped, and do something about his breath...........

None of those speeds are enough to make me smile.



Perhaps a half-smirk, but no smile.
