Re: The Real! MUSTANG hwMACH E is here

You can assume anything you want. I don't care. Are you going to debate that an electric motor (any type) when being in a high torque, low speed situation is going to draw a lot of amps ? Are you going to debate that drawing that much amps means a lot of power is consumed, power that needs to come ...

You mean an electrician right?

An "engineer" (with a "degree") would recognise this is nonsense.

Re: 911

Was anything ever done about 911? I haven't kept up on it? pdq67 Not much. Invaded one country, deployed a bunch of troops for 20 years in another, had a lot of people sent to Egypt for torture, took a lot of people to Guantanamo for non-torture, killed the top guy from the outfit that did it . . ....
