@EB2: If we can come up with a machine that harvests energy when our spouse rolls their eyes...

I could power our house using a machine that harvested energy from my wife's tongue (she's not standing behind me, is she? :-)

I don't regularly watch "Big Bang". If we can come up with a machine that harvests energy when our spouse rolls their eyes, then I will watch, and be able to go off-grid.

@EB2: I think you are more the type for moonbounce, AKA EME (Earth-Moon-Earth)...

Did you see that episode of The Big Bang Theory when they were on the roof of their appartment bouncing a laser beam off the moon ... that was a good one (of course the yare all good ones :-)

I enjoy supporting charity events, The Prouty ($2.7 million in 2013 for a cancer center), Vermont 50 and Vermont 100 (support Vermont Adaptive Ski and Sport), Covered Bridges Half Marathon. One is not effective doing "Em Comm" (Emergency Communications), unless a lot of time is spent before a disaster learning the operations and becoming proficient and efficient.

Max, I think you are more the type for moonbounce, AKA EME (Earth-Moon-Earth), which is communicating by bouncing signals off the the moon.

@kfield: What did his wife say when he brought all that junk in? LOL!

If you are talking about my chum Rick Curl, then his wife -- Cynthia -- probably said "you should give that rubbish to Max... he'll never even notice it in his office! (LOL)
