“I don’t care about patents,” Musk told Leno. “Patents are for the weak.” In Musk’s opinion, patents are “generally used as a blocking technique”  that are designed to prevent others from innovating.

The current events in Europe make me feel angry and embarrassed to be a human being. Anyone have any thoughts they would like to share?

My humble opinion. Gov. Newsom must have done the right thing, they want to fire him. I don't see anyone on that list that is more qualified than Gov. Newsom. Both the left and right have things they are smarter than the other on. Brats always want their own way. For us to survive we need to take the best of both and compromise, and start working together instead of sabotaging each other. We need to stop yelling and do some listening. Making people mad doesn't work we nee...

Why were we in Afghanistan? To keep terrorists out of the United States?  Rope-a-dope the bank? Where did the Iraq military go when the U.S. went into Iraq? Is this an orchestrated emergency so the American people don't have time to think rationally? The population of Afghanistan is around 39 million.

The chain drive conjecture. We know that velocity is how we defeat the gravity holding us to earth. Our ship is in orbit around earth. Once the chains are moving fast enough they will push our ship away from the gravity well we are in. This is a concept.

Dark Matter: Is it possible that the objects in distant galaxies see more normal mass locally than we see in those galaxies from Earth due to special relativity? Or could extra mass come from the multiverse? The multiverse: Could all the universes exist in the same reality but each on a different frequency just like TV channels in a cable? Every time you change your speed you tune in to a different frequency and a different universe. What other ways could you tune in to a...

The republican's problems have to move to democrat areas to survive. This effect causes the republican areas to look good.  When the republicans no longer look better than the alternative why vote for them?

In the double slit experiment, the bar with the two slits is a lens. If you change the location of the lens it changes the focal point which changes the picture you see on the screen and the results  of the experiment. You can go a step further and put on the wrong prescription glasses when you view the results of the experiment, this will change the entire history of the experiment and change the results you observe.   On to entanglement. You have two entangled...

We have a 20 pound weight and a scale on the surface of Earth that we will take on this trip. We have a space ship that has a new engine that accelerates particles of matter to propel it self and can accelerate for years if necessary. We blast into orbit around earth and are traveling 17000 miles per hour. Alpha Centauri, 4.3 light-years from Earth is our destination. The engine is turned on and using our 20 pound weight and a scale we accelerate at a constant 32 feet per se...

Location - AppData\LocalLow\Microsoft\CryptnetUrlCache\Content I've noticed an increase of data coming into this folder since back in March. 10MB to 18MB per session. The most I saw in the past was 3MB. I have seen it on more than one operating system. Could it be to make the Internet more efficient or something else?

You are taking a job on the other side of the country 3000 miles away and you have to be there in one week. You will drive a fully loaded personal truck with a fully loaded box trailer. Each day you will drive 600 miles starting at sun up and you will stop at a motel 6 at night to rest. I researched the Tesla truck and it sounds like you could have a 500 mile range and at a Tesla Megacharger station you could get an 80% charge and 400 more miles in 30 minutes of charge time,...

Will a self driving car be able to see in dense fog in the day time? I use fog lights and slow down. What happens when the detector can't see but the brain box thinks it still can? Human drivers know from instinct what other human drivers might do in many driving situations. Human drivers can't predict what self driving cars will do, adding another layer of uncertainty and possible chaos to a human's drive. How many miles have the people driven who think self driving cars is a good idea? ...
