... a branch of the "neoLuddite ResistANT Army" here to help us fight against the RoTM!
We are obviously at a critical point in the evolution of the machines so the Ants have been transported back in time, (using the Machines own time travelling device obviously), and are set to munch their way through the Armies of the Machine Overlords.
.............. and I for one welcome our brave time travelling LuddANT allies...........
"some morons sitting in front of rows of monitors and remote-launching electroshocks will rule the roads!"
Hope you don't mind if I steal that idea, i've just thought of a great Real Life MMORPG!!!!
It's the natural progression from the experiment where they let people on a council estate in London watch live CCTV feeds.
Just give them a joystick and an on screen target and it will keep the kids off the streets!
Government will love it, staffing costs will be zero, they might even make money out of it for a change!
"... Rows of tables in carpeted rooms with servers stacked on and around them....
...Portable aircon units leaking water onto the floor...
...Rats' nests of network cabling and power cables strewn all over floors and tables, in doorways, across light fittings..."
When they outlawed protests outside Parliament,
I remained silent;
I was not a Protester.
When they removed the automatic right to a trial by Jury,
I remained silent;
I was not a suspect.
When they tried to increase detention without trial,
I did not speak out;
I was not a Muslim.
When they started watching every aspect of society through CCTV,
I remained silent;
I thought I had nothing to hide.
When they came for me,
there was no one left to speak out.
It turns out that thinking was itself a crime.
This was always going to happen, it's an easy vote winner for a dying party.
"We're tough on drugs!!" Yeah, wotevva Gord.
Interesting article in the Observer this weekend about how the Government ignores the Scientific Evidence and makes up their own results.
Are you ready to be held liable when someone reads your comments and does as you say?
"It requires no modifications to a diesel engine to run biodiesel."
This quote is correct in most cases and I have no argument with it.
"Biodiesel is ridiculously easy to make. Go to your local McDogfood, nick the used cooking oil (they LOVE to not have to pay for disposal!), and run it through a coffee filter. BAM! Biodiesel."
This quote is just wrong and will kill most Diesel engines.
What you have after running it through a coffee filter is clean used cooking oil.
The problem with running an engine on cooking oil is that it is much thicker than Mineral Diesel or even BioDiesel. As it's thicker the fuel pump has to work much harder, you are more prone to clogged injectors etc. Also it solidifies at much higher temperatures that Diesel so in cold weather you are trying to inject butter into the engine.
Diesel engines can run on clean oil if you convert them to heat the fuel before it reaches the pump/engine.
To convert it to BioDiesel you need to react it with Lye and Menthanol which strips most of the glycerine (a handy by-product of this process) and water out of it.
You also get a ready supply of soap from the used Lye.

You know, if there's one thing I've learned from being in the army, it's never ignore a pooh-pooh.
I knew a major: got pooh-poohed; made the mistake of ignoring the pooh-pooh -- he pooh-poohed it.
Fatal error, because it turned out all along that the soldier who pooh-poohed him had been pooh-poohing a lot of other officers, who pooh-poohed their pooh-poohs.
In the end, we had to disband the regiment -- morale totally destroyed ...
Been a bloke on Radio Sheffield this morning describing the awful scene he found on his patio this morning.....
"The Peg box has fallen over and the pegs are all over the floor. The Plastic ones are mixed up with the wooden ones, it's all just terrible!"
Must admit it scared the crap out of me, thought the boiler had blown up again!!
"He spoke of such optimism of the future it was amazing. People were cheering on the streets the night of the election. A new sense of optimism has gone through the people. Even many people who voted for the encumberant and saying that he's not a bad choice."
Does anyone else remember 1997?
The future seemed so much brighter, with our shiny New Labour government.
What the hell happened?!?!?!
