Re: Another Big "What If?"

<t>Two years later and I stand by my original post, now with even more conviction. Things have changed technology wise and everybody is thinking with the old frame of reference. <br/> <br/> I think the airplane is a good example to look at here. There were many who had proposed and even demonstrated...

Re: Electric theory??

So inertia is an intrinsic property of matter?

Re: Infrastructure - the joy and end of us all.

<t>Well, IMHO you are all on the right path. My house, which I consider to be an inefficient energy hog, used about $35 worth of wood to provide heat for the entire winter heating season (4-5 months).
