How to beef up a Crest Spinbrush pro

Hello, first off I'm new to this site. I found it Monday and I think it's great. A while back our local news had a tech guy on showing some new inventions with toothbrushes. Just for fun he also had a Crest Spinbrush with some extra batteries taped around the handle which raised the RPM's of the brush. Any idea what it would take to do this?? thank you Jethrow~

Identify a Signet Ring? Answered

My grandmother gave me a signet ring a week ago, and I was wondering if anyone could help me identify the coat of arms on the front of the ring. I don't know what metal it is made from, and there is no visible hallmark that I can see...

Does anyone know the name of this bird? (See Description) Answered

I saw a bird about the size of a robin hopping around in the underbrush. It was black, with white patches on its body. It also had a orange-red stomach, like a robin. What really confused me was that there was a crest, or birdy mohawk on its head. What species of bird it this?

what are some ways I can 'dog proof' my cat litter boxes? Answered

 I have several indoor rescue cats so I need many boxes.  Even with daily cleaning, the dogs still manage to find those tasty 'snacks'. With many cats, the box needs to be easy to clean but still hard for the dogs to get into. The dogs are a 90lb Bernese Mountain Dog and a 9lb Chinese Crested

Converting a design to basic lines?

Okay, here's the deal. I want to put this design on the blade of a knife I'm making (the design is the USNA class of 2013 ring crest). Before I can do that I need to have a stencil made of the design so I can etch it on the steel. But, the design is to complicated (all the shadowing and such). So I need to clean it up, get rid of shading, shadows, all that. How would anyone suggest I do that? I gifure I'll have to do some editing in a photo editing program, what program? And how do I do it?  Thanks for any help, I'm not a computer graphics person at all, so explain it like you would to your grandpa (no I'm not old, just not computer smart) Oldanvilyoungsmith

Convert 2-AAA Keyboard to USB Powered Answered

Let me preface this by saying, no, I don't want to just get another wired keyboard - I want this one as it is small and compact, and looks/feels nice as well as it was free.I have received a small Silver Crest wireless bluetooth keyboard and it runs off 2-AAA batteries. I'd like to convert it into a wired keyboard because I hate battery powered stuff and I want a replacement for my current one(keyboard).I've read that some projects recommended adding several diodes to lower the voltage from the 5v USB output or using resistors but I'd like to have more concrete information for this specific project. Will the amperage be too much/little? Will there be any noise that might interfere with the signals? (since it's bluetooth) etc

Relativity and why E can't really equal m²

See this topic as something that should be in our now deeply missed random fun section.Everyone learned in school that there was Albert Einstein and we have to thank him for bringing humanity into the next evolution.At least in terms of understanding the universe, quantum physics and things like this.Over the years I developed my own funny theories on why Einstein was so stunned that his calculated energy output from the first nuclear test was off by a factor of about 4 - meaning his calulations were at least 4 times lower than the real thing....The official story about this "mistake" is something like this in a destilled and drastically simplified way:"We did our best but this totally new terrain, theory got corrected by real world test.We now know how to factor all this in correctly for selfsustaining nuclear reactions with a critical mass."The real explanation with all calculations and so on was document of about 200 pages....The inoffical story about the first test and the corrected results was a bit longer and personal.Nicola and ALbert had a long hate-love relationship.Similar interests and theories got them together, diference in the opinion what can be put into our current math system for calculations and conflic of used terms got them apart.But like every good couple they always got over their differences and corresponded again - sometimes with a year or two before they were ready to talk to each other again.In this story Nicola had massive arguments with Albert about the required, sustained and released energy levels for Gadget - the first test of the Trinity series.To give you an idea why it was so hard for both to understand the other or to accept the other's calculations:Einstein based all his theories and what we use today when it comes to math.Tesla however prefered his own mathematical system, one he promoted and got into every day use in many US schools at the time.In simple world it was based on a big circle, I like to call it the circle of math.Almost all of our natural constants (that were known back then) were present as lines, multiplication, squre roots and more were as easy as following the right lines and pathways indicated on this circle.Both system, ours and Tesla's provided the exact same results, the later however without any need for additional "notes" along the way or complicated formulas.And even worse when it came to energy.Back then science alrealy knew there is more than what our laws of physics state and what we know.And what we could not really understand and only proove in theory is now as common as butter on your bread.Thinks like quantum mechanics, quarks or the fact that you can't observe a light particle on a quantum level directly, only as its sum....Tesla however already had "a higher understanding" on how different energies interact and how get from one form of energy to another.Like his tesla transformer, the radio transmitter and so on.While we had no clue at all Tesla already studied the ionosphere, he had different name for it though.For him it was obvious that it is not just a reflective barrier for radio waves but that it also has a very energy potential on its own.Either way the argument was the Albert only factored in the mass of the nuclear material, the explosive forces from the ignition and the corresponding implosion.Basically everything we could see, explain or theorise about back in the day - and it needed to be possible to claculate it somehow to match expections.Nicola made the claim that during the explosion also a lot of electromagnetic energy is created together with what he called a break in the fabric of the universe.Not only that but the electromagnetic shock (we call it now EMP) is not really a single thing but spread basically over the entire know frequency range, including visible light.The visible light claim was confirmed during the test by shadows burnt into walls....You can clearly imagine how good old Einstein must have felt seeing his good friend being dead serious about things he could not have the slightest idea about.After all there never was any test before and certainly none with Tesla present...How the personal story between the two continued can be found online if you some digging or if you prefer in a well stocked library - yes they still exist as real place ;)What was mostly left undocumented, at least for public eyes was the implications from the Trinity test series.That Tesla really was onto something even if the smartest man on the planet could not understand a single word of it became painfully obvious.At least for Albert....In his later theories you can find the influence the revelation of finally understanding why his calulations were of and most importantly understanding what Tesla meant by the fabric of the universe.E does not really equal mc² for quite a few reasons.Firstly because it is based on the assumption that nothing can be faster than the speed of light.So did our best to measure it, cheated by making definition of light speed and meter based on the same thing.I mean: If you take two "unknown" variables to create a result and then use the result to finetune the input- how accurate can it really be?....Today we long know that there things travelling much faster than the speed of light, for example gravimetric shockwaves when a distant star goes booom.We detect these "gravity quake" now so we can aim our big telescopes to where it happened and see it in "realtime" once the light arrived long after the shockwave.And if you dare to re-do the original calculations for Gadget and factor in that a gravimetric shockwave travels about 4 times fast than light you get an idea why Tesla already knew all about it.What came out of all the offcial calculations and theories is well known.What is missing from E=mc² was never officially published by Einstein...Applications for the possible damage to what Tesla called the fabric of the universe.We are trained to only use our brains in two dimensions.A bit of it comes from our evolution as since the dawn of time we prefered creating a flat image over creating a sculpture with similar details.Some people though can use their brin in three dimensions with ease, like when a really good sculpture artist say "The sculture is already in the rock, I only need to remove what is covering it."And sure enough every color or texture detail of the rock ends up in exactly the right spot to make the result perfect.Musicians are quite similar, a lot of them have no clue about notes or how read them to create a nice tune on an instrument.Some only need to hear a song once and can repeat it on all instruments they play like they studied the song for years.Others hear the vocals only and create tunes and melodies from it that not only match voice act but also reflect on the mood, the feelings.In some really good songs you only need to hear the instruments and can almost imagine what the singer would sing to it...A very few can do similar with math, we like to call them a genius because we can not imagine a complex and long number as a series of meaningful images or emotions paired with colors - for example, as there many more ways to deal with numbers...People like Einstein realised after the Trinity tests that the EMP and corresponding electromagnetic effects are too strong to be measured by anything unless it is from a great distance.That means, like lumen per area, the strenght of the electromagnetic effects increase exponentially the closer you get to the source.Still... No big deal right?Well if you dare you make a frog levitate in a magnetic field, won't be a healthy experience for the frog but it will levitate.You can look these frog experiment and corresponding scientific explanations up online if you are bored enough one day.The point is: If a frog can be excluded from gravity in a magnetic field of suffient strenght, orientation and other features, then what else can "float"? ....Or more to the point: Why exactly does the frog float if he is not magnetic enough to begin with?....We have no problems visualising or imagining the shockwave from a big explosion like Gadget.High speed films show us that there would be an expanding perfect sphere, only object like the ground limit this experience, but you see it nice in underwater explosions!What most people can't even begin to understand is how a shockwave of which the EMP is only a small part acts, travels or what effects it migh thave.Unlike a normal shockwave we have something like redox reaction happening.The explosion creates an unimaginably strong electric impulse, a bit like all lightning strikes in world feeding into a single lightbulb at the same point in time.For argument sake lets say is almost indefinately high.However, like in an ignition coil this impulse creates and equally strong electromagnetic impulse.And since the entire reaction at this point is far from over we get a harmonic resonance and feedback system.Imagine a second you stretch around the globe as a band and then you cut a mm off it - that would be about the timeframe for the most intense electromagnetic field swinging around at all sorts of frequencies.And during this very short period of time a bubble is created that expands what modern sciensts now call the space - time - continium.Same name as in the movies but this time based on quantum theories and such things to explain gravity.An awful lot of energy is trapped inside this bubble and once the initial reaction is over the electromagnetic impuls disappears and only the normal reaction from the explosion continues.The bubble however does not pop or disappear, it implodes.All this energy is compressed basically to a single atom size and released.Sadly this energy has no visible effect, nothing we can observer with our eyes or instruments...Again we use quantum theories to explain what must happen to find way to it "visible" somehow or to find way to really measure it.Gravity sensors are a result of these theories and developments and now part of basically any good GPS satellite or space probe.Some fancy phones have them too.What would actually happen if we would have found a way to affect the space time continuum in a very controlled way?Without explosions or such bad things, just by using simple technologies.Now I would have to explain things in at least four dimensions, which means most readers would shut off now.Using five would be insane, I know :(So let try to ignore how things work fr real and do what every good scientist does: simplify to make the imagination work in just 2 or 2.5 dimensions.Put a cork on a pond a throw a rock in it.It moves, mostly wobbling on the waves but it moves away from where the rock was dropped.If it could be "anchored" at the right spot between two crests of the wave it would move with it, like a surfer on a good wave does.A craft that creates our field from the inside and in a neutral configuration would create a perfect sphere.What would that mean for the craft and those outside observers?At a first glance nothing until you realise the craft has no mass at all.You could lift a 5 ton vehicle with your little finger and flick away like something you found in your nose.Unlike our suspended frog the craft would create a field bubble where gravity diverts around it.Gravitity is the driving force of the space time continuum.Without it there would be no time, without time there would be nothing.If you would be inside the craft and be flicked away by a finger you would only realise it if you looked out of window or onto a screen showing the outside.As the craft does not exist in the normal space time continuum, so to say, the same non existing effects of things like acceleration, g-forces and such can't apply for what is inside either.Well, at least until you reach the wall, the suddenly all is stopped and has to enter our normal continuum again.You would be mince meat on some wall inside what is left from your craft...Increase the field strenght to overcome inertia of smaller particles and even air molecules or dust particles are diverted around the field.Nothing though that would rival the mass of the craft in a significant way, like flying into a solid wall or mountain....A modfied field geometry allows to affect the shape of the bubble.To keep it in two dimensions, imagine a ping pong ball as the field that you press into some slime, or similar fun stuff.Start moving it and it forms something like a wave in the front and something like a wake on the other side.Our field can shape the bubble so that our space time continuum would look quite similar - if we could see it instead of theorising about it.As result the craft now moves in our normal continuum without having and appearent form of engine.The bigger you make these "waves" with your field, the fast you go....And suddenly those impossible movements in the sky that are always dismissed as a hoax or weather balloon make a lot more sense.Be it a Scalar drive, the Fluxliner, VR7 and derivates, they all use garvity as a propulsion system.Fair enough you might say, but what does mean in terms of where we might have been already since almost one hundred years....A gravity based drive system in the sience fiction section has many names.Warp Drives of course comes to mind first.But also FTL drive or Jump Drive.Just because gravity waves are much faster than light already means lightspeed is not really a limit and hasn't been for a very long time.Why do you think superconductors were first developed by/for the military? ;)With no mass it is only a matter of the avilable energy how fast you can accelerate and what top speed you can reach....Or to be precise: How effiently you can create an insanely strong electromagnetic field.Make you wonder what else came from understanding what things like a Hedron Collider can do...With an estimated energy output equal to truck sized generator you could make it from Virginia to Mare Tranquillitatis in about 10 minutes.Make it 30 if you want to get out and stretch your legs when you are there.Some now say "I don't care who or why someone goes to the moon."But what about those who think climate change is real and how we produce and use energy plays a big role in it?Let alone those actually considering that fossil fuels might run out one day....If you have a gravity drive then you have a very neat way to create almost limitless, clean energy.....I leave it up to what it would mean if everyone and everything in our world would have access to free and virtually unlimited energy....Isn't it good that all this is just a nice story and that all is just fiction with no relation to reality?But if E does not equal mc² then how relative is our reality really?
