  1. So glad I wasn't alone in noticing the poor standard of reporting. The lack of relevant information regarding the category of ice referenced in the calculation of 'rising sea levels' is just shoddy. Such publications, quoting ill-defined facts reduce the message to mere; gossip or propaganda. I suspect it was written to offset reporting of increased Antarctic ice levels last year. using big numbers as a sound bite for folks to remember. Hardly a document to be taken seriously. It was probably written by the Antarctic Climate Scientist who left their spare phone at home. Then DHL had to fly a replacement half way round the world to cover their incompetence. The author(s) caught themselves out. by being sloppy Sea ice should mostly be discounted from the equation. As Archimedes stated over 2,000 years ago. Bet he never forgot his phone! Jerry
  2. As you may recall, I asked someone who made an obvious point if he thought that had escaped the notice of scientists. You replied: "Seems Archimedes did just that in 270 B.C." Maybe you should have cited the example of Pythagoras and Pi. That goes back even further. And is no more or less relevant to the case at hand. Sea ice displaces its own mass in water [Archimedes Principle] [the sea]. A proven scientific fact from over 2,000 years ago. Ergo, the sea level can't rise from melting sea ice. Period. Very relevant. Pythagoras would probably have applied a better math to the mass and subsequent sea level displacement by using his abacus, to determine the case at hand. If he had been born after Archimedes, of course. Jerry
  3. That's how far back to when the Archimedes Principle was proven and it hasn't been disproved in all the time since. Jerry

    Got a test drive booked in 3 weeks. So any interested in doing the same should call their local Ford dealership. They're launching July to August. Not my kind of thing, but it's free. Doubt I'll change my mind though. Jerry

    Totally agree. You can always start a new project here after you pay a visit to Chai Nat. There's doubtless other places with a similar amount of coal, also. Jerry
  7. If the thaw is primarily of sea ice, it makes zero difference. Eureka. Jerry

    Air quality Hua Hin

    Which in my experience is co-incident during the burning season when the winds turn off-shore. Jerry
  9. Vaccination after an animal bite If you’re bitten by an animal that could have rabies, you can get the rabies vaccine to keep you from developing the disease. A doctor can help decide if you need the vaccine. If you haven’t been vaccinated for rabies before, you’ll need 4 doses of the vaccine. You’ll get the first dose right away, followed by additional doses: 3 days after the first dose 1 week after the second dose 2 weeks after the third dose People who have a weakened immune system need another dose 4 weeks after the first dose. You’ll also get a shot called Rabies Immune Globulin with the first dose to help your body fight the virus faster. If you’ve already had the rabies vaccine, you’ll need 2 doses after an animal bite — you’ll get the first dose right away, followed by a second dose 3 days after the first. You won’t need the Rabies Immune Globulin shot. If you think you or someone in your family needs the rabies vaccine, talk with a doctor. Similar treatment to mine. Caveat; that if I missed a dose, I would need to start the course again from the beginning (may only have been said as an encouragement to complete the course). Completing the course gives 2 years protection. Cost: 3,400 THB. Most likely a lot cheaper at government hospital. Jerry

    Bought my Wildtrack 2 years ago and it cost a little over 1.2 million. Could have got a pre-ordered one that would have saved me about 50,000 THB as it was registered before the tax increase. Wrong color. So, not worth the saving. What a difference a year can make. I think the Raptor offered to Thailand will sell well. At only a few hundred thousand above the Wildtrack price it's a steal for what is likely to be the 'flagship' truck of the land. Nothing else comes close to its looks and performance and it's unlikely to be surpassed any time soon. Folks will pay a premium for something that lets them 'showboat' . Evidenced by the meteoric rise in Mercedes over the past few of years. There's also more access to information via numerous forms of media. Folks can see what's available around the world and it whets their appetite. Jerry

    Depends what's on offer when it's launched here. Ford dealership wasn't very forthcoming when I asked about V6 option. He did mention that he expected the price of a Raptor to be around 1.5 million and Stangs up to 4. Jerry
  12. Not just cats and dogs. There's other critters that can transmit rabies. Feral animals anywhere are prone to carry such diseases. Best advice is to visit a health professional, if bitten by anything in a foreign country. I was recently 'nipped ' by a soi dog. Not a big deal for me. Just a course of 4 injections over a one month duration. The owner got a dose of 'som nam na'. I paid for my medication. Jerry

    If that's what you're looking for, I don't disagree. However, I would question, how much of that is available in real situations. The new trend (from a lot of manufacturers nowadays) is to achieve; high power outputs and high torque levels from smaller displacements. Presently, I view them as 'all go' with no finesse. I'm actually more interested in the Stang options here. In June, or there-about. At least (some) options appear to be the same as in the U.S. Although, I may wait until Trump imposes tariffs on rice (and such) before I buy. Jerry

    insurance for old car

    Use them for (some of) my older bikes. No complaints. As the values rise, so do the premiums. Hence, not all. No reason to think that's no different for an auto. Unsure of what happens if you need to claim though. Jerry

    Not my style of truck, if I wasn't planning to go 'off-road'. Something that most; never will and seriously underpowered compared to the U.S original. Nothing more than a cart for dreamers. There's no replacement for displacement. Jerry
