Zeyad, I remember you talking about trains a long time ago. Was it when you briefly worked down in Basra? (or am I thinking of another blogger? ;-)
They sounded pretty dilapidated back then.

Petes يقول...

WTI at $79.36.

Then y'all might wanna also correct y'all's mistake about the lower gravity in the red giant bein' caused by the mass that it has lost, rather than the transition to hydrogen shell burning from core burnin'. Nothin' to do with mass loss. Seeing' as how y'all are only concerned with yer audience's interests. LOL.

As trollsome as ever.

"That'll not be necessary, as I did not claim that the loss of mass was the only factor that will be at work in the projected expansion.  And, it's estimated that the mass lost may be as high as 38-40%, certainly enough to make it a significant contributing factor.  In fact, some mass loss will almost certainly preceed the anticipated core collapse."

LOL. Bit late to be clutching' at those straws. Some mass loss is always goin' on. I already gave the rate. Yer talking' crap and you well know it. Didn't read yer wiki pages with sufficient understanding.

As for yer "alternate fuel" nonsense, y'all made that up yerself. I'll leave ya to sort out yer own straw men.

Probably better stick with yer excitement about the glyph Googlin'. And now, back to troll ignoring mode.

Lee thats the point. They were all ripped off and stolen by the train state company employees.

*looks at Zeyad in confusion*

But, but, what are they going to do with train seat backs without seats?

Lynnette In Minnesota يقول...

Btw, is it too much to hope that they have been arrested and charged with theft?

Zeyad يقول...

Yeah, Lynnette, you're asking for too much.

Given that they couldn't possibly tear off the whole seat (it would render the train unusable), they would just use the seat backs as seats or cushions in a mud shack or wherever else they would find a use for them. We are a resourceful people.

      "We are a resourceful people."

So you say.  Occurs to me that ya might want to devote more of those resources towards discouraging railway employees from trashing out the rail cars.

Zeyad يقول...

Notice that the neon light fixtures have been stolen too.

No rule of law. Thieving pigs in government. Cops who accept bribes. Just some of the problems preventing that from happening. Maybe in another lifetime.

Petes يقول...

"Maybe you'd prefer I call it ‘new types of nuclear reactions when its initial fuel is used up’.  However, I don't much give a damn what you'd prefer.  I figure ‘alternate fuel’ is equally accurate, equally descriptive, says basically the exact same thing, and is much less wordy.  So, I figure I'm good."

Quel suprise. Trolls ain't the most discerning.
