WOW, I really don't think I was being insulting, but regardless, I've deleted my comments.

No offense intended - just some banter

Hi Stiive. I think we're on the same side. I think maybe I misread what you were trying to say with the Aristotle/Galileo example, and then you misread my response. I don't think I'm in the "camp" you thought I was. I'm on the side of critical thinking and testing by experiment and I assume you are too. I too love to take things apart to figure out how they work, and to build things that work that haven't been built before.

One of the fathers of MeXy the electric MX-5, along with Coulomb and Newton (Jeff Owen).

Haha fair enough.

Just FYI, my statement to sometimes 'think outside the box' wasn't directed at you... But was referring to how the inventor spinning a power source to produce AC, rather than later inverting it. I thought it was an interesting principal which was the main reason for posting the article. Anyway, seems you may have taken offense but it was not my intention - thought i'd clear that up.

Anyone tried the two way mirror effect yet?
We found it worked on our model solar car in school.
But my god that was forever ago I mean like when solar was a hot rock...
