I am probably working on Hubski.

Send me a PM or post with the tag #bugski if you think something is broken.

I am ignoring #thebeatles.

I do not agree with everything that I post. I hope you don't either.

If the last part isn't part of the poem it should be.

Be well, but keep those two together.

I'm pretty sure there is, and it's about two Teslas.

    Seems like the whole P = F/A thing is kind of lost on them in the chase for clean design.


    The Press itself creates three to four tons of pressure—enough to lift two Teslas—and enough to squeeze out every drop of organic fresh kale, spinach, apples, and other fruits and vegetables into your glass.

Hey, that's two Teslas, buddy. Count em. One Tesla, two Teslas. P=2Teslas

    A simple roller press would do the trick, and could be built for very little money; don't even need hydraulics.

That much is true. I was just thinking that if you didn't want the constraint of needing to start with juicy pulp, you might be able to get somewhere with hydraulics. Also, that stupid pack is going to burst at the seams with Tesla-lifting power unless you are applying pressure everywhere except for the port. The pack should be a cylinder, and the piston should push down.

$120M. Christ.

Hey Hubbington. You aren't going crazy:

Step back from that ledge my friend.

It's an unimaginative solution, and I bet that they iterated themselves into that very complex and durable vice. I am also willing to bet that at the same time, they found they needed to chop up the fruit and veggies more and more so that they had an even squeeze.

Here's what I might have done:


There's a reason why powerful machinery uses hydraulics.

Hanging with tng in NC. Off to SF for one night tomorrow.

We got baby chicks. My daughter is over the moon about them. I have built about 1/3 of the chicken coop. I'll post some progress in the next Pubski.

I agree that these are all good questions. Brave is moving from Bitcoin to Ethereum, and they are going to be using a token called the BAT or basic attention token. I'm not sure if it will make the experience better or worse. There seems to be a number of approaches to get crypto into the browser (like the metamask extension, or dApp browsers like Mist). Who knows if this approach will work. At least they have a lot of experience behind them.

Content has been polluted by ads. I'm willing to support experimenting with new models.

The way I see it, the only way we will be commuting in these things is when they, and everything else in the air, is flying itself.

Chickens is a thoughtful thing.

Thank you, this is all very practical advice, and should be very helpful. I'll definitely go light-weight.

Good to know. As mentioned to ghostoffuffle, I'm cool with them exploring the woods. But if they can't get back, that's on them. The door closes at sundown.

My cousin has a lot more chickens, and she has done pretty well letting them sort it all out.

Ha. My cousin has like two dozen chickens, and they follow her to the coop each night like soldiers. She did lose a few along the way, and maybe it was for the best. I'm definitely not going to be chasing chickens down the street. If they want to strike out on their own, then I wish them all the best.

I'd rather 2 obedient chickens than 4 rebellious ones. If it takes some selection pressure, I'm ok with that.
