So, what else is there to talk about here besides politics. Anything other than politics usually die off quickly so here is an open thread to talk about anything...

Anyone watching American Idol this season?

Will there be an NFL season next year?

Can Jimmy Johnson win another Sprint cup championship?

Who are the early frontrunners for the NCAA tournament?

How's that for starters?

Nah, haven't watched that since season 1. I'll tune in now and then, but just can't get into it

I think so. I'm not 100% sure it will get done by the set deadline, and there may be a brief preseason lockout even... but there's just too much money to lose for everyone for them to not at least work out a quick fix temporary deal, if nothing else.

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Originally Posted By: pooltchr</div><div class="ubbcode-body">Can Jimmy Johnson win another Sprint cup championship?</div></div>

I don't see why not

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Originally Posted By: pooltchr</div><div class="ubbcode-body">Who are the early frontrunners for the NCAA tournament?</div></div>

OSU is definitely the big favorite right now IMO. One school that may be an odd case of big school bracket buster is Alabama (I hate to say that!) But after a sad 5-6 start they've quietly gone 10-1 since then. Granted the only 'good' teams they beat in that run were Kentucky and Tennessee, but they are playing good ball right now. With Vandy and Florida the only tough games left they should reach 21-22 wins or so. With even a decent showing in the SEC tourney they could be a formidable 10-12th seed. Just a random thought there.

Anyway, back on point... OSU, Pitt, Kansas, and throw a dart at a list of Big East schools

Just so happens I just watched a fascinating but sad docu called Made in America. Don't be put off by the title. Its not political in the sense of Dems v GOP. Its just one perspective on a present day problem and how that came about.

I hav put in 100's of hours lately on human powered boats.
I woz particularly impressed with DDWFTTW.
This iz amazing. A wind powered propellor car going downwind at 3.5 times the speed of the wind -- no added power of any sort.

Plus of course wind turbine and water propellor powered boats going very fast dead into the wind -- which i hav known about for years.

But, where i hav really impressed myself, iz that i hav designed two kompletely revolutionary (pun intended) types of paddlewheel, for human powered boating, but allso good for ordinary engines and motors.
I might patent my paddlewheel ideas -- dunno.

I am today designing a dismantleable catamaran pontoon boat, that will fit neatly in the back of your station wagon.
It can be driven by any and every system known to man.
But i intend to make one, and, ready for this, i will pole it.

Yes, a poled pontoon cat, poled by a pole uzing a pole.
mackiewicz.

(edit) Just realized. I hav in fakt designed 3 kompletely revolutionary types of paddlewheel.

I kan add. I hav been reading lots of blogs about the efficiency of paddlewheels and props etc -- and thems engineers and scientists are skrewing up bigtime (pun intended) -- they are smarter than me, but they are really skrewing up some basics.
Krappynomix all over again.

I kan add. I made my first model paddlewheel boat in about 1957, when i woz 10yrs old. I ran it up and down a horse-trough on our corner. Yes, in thems days horses pulled our milk-carts and bakers-carts. The horse-trough iz gone now. Pity.
This paddlewheeler woz driven by gravity. I wound a cord round the shaft, and had a lead sinker on the end, and when the sinker sank, it turned the paddlewheel, and the boat paddled to the other end of the trough.

Irish joke. An irishman once patented a paddlewheeler submarine.
mac.

Just realized -- it iz in fakt 4 revolutionary new types of paddlewheel power.
I would love to giv u a clue about any of theze 4 -- but any sort of deskription at all would giv the game away kompletely.

I am watching AI this year and think adding Steven Tyler has been fantastic. It is refreshing to not have the negativity of Cowell and Tyler is quick on his feet and funny. It is nice to see the judges "interact" with the contestants a bit more but I think that is because there are two new "fresh" judges instead of a couple worn out ones. Cowell just looked completely bored with the show last year.

That pontoon cat that i am talking about probly wont happen. madSherie sez i am not building a boat.

But i allready hav a name -- PoleCat. Koz it iz poled by a pole uzing a pole.
In fakt i hav thort of 5 new paddlewheel arrangements, and this one woz No5 (or woz it No4, karnt remember).
This one iz the most unlikely -- its allmost a joke really -- so i will deskribe.

There are approx 6 paddlewheel innovations out there allready -- and mac's No5 iz in effekt (say) No11 overall. So, (mac's) No11 iz based on (someone else's) No6.
No6 iz a paddlewheel that haz 2 paddles but no wheel. Koz, each paddle iz on the end of a leg. The pedal moovment iz konverted to (what looks like) a walking motion (looks weird).

Anyhow, (mac's) No11 simply takes away the 2 paddles and replaces them with 2 poles -- for poling in shallow lakes etc.
This PoleCat would then look like the (pontoon style) weed cutter that cut weeds at our local lake. Except that the 2 poles uzed by the weed cutter dont propel the pontoon, they only cut the weeds (at mud level). The cutter pontoon iz aktually propelled by 2 paddlewheels.

Re utilizing the (patented) walking-legs kontraption (for the PoleCat) -- i dont havta uze walking-legs at all -- there are lots of simpler ways that would work even better.
In fakt standing up and uzing a pole the oldfashioned way would be best.

Anyhow, the PoleCat kood be propelled lots of ways -- a 3hp outboard would be dandy (if u aint got a shallow lake).

Each hull (2) iz made of 3 sexions, 6 in all. The 2 main sexions stow one inside the other, and 2 of the other 4 stow inside the 2 main sexions. The deck iz in 2 sexions -- one stows in the other -- and the 4 hull sexions stow inside the deck sexions, leaving 2 hull sexions on their own.
And the whole lot fits eezyly in the back of a stationwagon, if u lay the back seats down (L = 1800mm) -- unless u prefer to uze your roofracks.
Oh, i nearly forgot, the pole needstabe at least 4m, but that can eezyly be made teleskopik.
mac.
Still thinking.

Aktually, paddlewheels are in my blood. In 1957 i made a model paddlewheeler, driven by gravity (a falling lead wt).
In 1969 i worked in a hydraulic laboratory, and tested 4 flow meters, all of the paddlewheel style.

One that i tested woz a Badger pipeline flow meter. This had a plastik paddlewheel laying on its side, partly shrouded.

Two were traditional looking big steel paddlewheels (Dethridge Wheel), for measuring flow in open channels (not for propulsion).

One woz a modern verzion of a Dethridge Wheel. I remember uzing kleer plexi sides so that i kood see what woz going on under the surface, ie at the paddles.
I remember installing lots of piezos and tubes in varyus places, to tell me how the flows and pressures fluctuated.
Ah, the good ol'days.
