    Some years ago there was a $10 device sold that guaranteed to cut power bills in half . When the package arrived it contained a pair of scissors.
    There is nothing quite as permanent as a good temporary repair.

    Just remember and understand one fact. The sun's irradiance here on the surface of the earth, on clear day, is 75 watts per square foot. If all of this were converted to mechanical power at 100% efficiency (dreamer) you would harvest 1/10 horse power.

    I wonder if that guy flunked high school physics. Maybe he doesn't believe in physics.

    I liked the outfit that sold a gadget “guaranteed to kill flies.” What arrived was two blocks of wood with the instructions, “Place fly on one block and hit it with the other.”

    I know there's this magnet thing which will reduce your cars fuel consumption, increase its power and extend engine life. Must try it one day. Sounds great

    There are two kinds of boaters: those who have run aground, and those who lie about it.

    Little known fact — Jimmy Hoffa invented a 200 mpg carb, but then THEY made him disappear.
