    With a lockdown you just can flatten the peek. The pandemic will still go on except you do it the Chinese way and jail the whole population in varying size jails.
    You can no longer travel freely in China. As soon as they see > 10 cases in…

    As I said before ... I don't think SKLed will produce 10000lm / 4w. This is the kind of product similar to the "LED Flashlight 90000 lumens" which in fact has only about 2000lm. Even the construction is similar considering the lens that covers the LEDs.…

    They kill jobs, overwhelm treasuries, harm mental health but COVID lockdowns work, science suggests
    Still, for many lay people and some doctors and scientists , the question has become: Was it all worth it?

  • Shane D. Reacted with Thanks to can’s post in the thread Plasma electrolysis at lower voltages.

    When switching on the cathodic plasma from an off state, sometimes the process is not instantaneous. It appears as if heat takes a while to ramp up.

    This occurs more easily when conditions are such that the applied current is higher, for example using a…

    Partially wrapping the titanium wire with Cu filaments appears to have solved the overheating problems I had with it. I could now sweep voltage throughout a wider voltage range, with no overheating observed.

    Since resistance at high voltages appears to…

  • Shane D. Reacted with Thanks to can’s post in the thread Plasma electrolysis at lower voltages.

    I tried adding a short 0.3 mm titanium wire to the previously used 1 mm tungsten welding rod used as a holder. With it I swept voltage between 40V and 50V back and forth, where the cathodic plasma reaction already takes place. Titanium seems to work…

    Just so you know...Had my second Pfizer 3 days ago. Started feeling fatigued about 5 hours ago. So much so that I am playing on the forum today baiting bears instead of doing projects. Started reading and found that this is common with the 2nd dose.

    Sure there is evidence! The CDC has done their own study and found the following : Lockdowns (specifically indicated by restaurant closings) reduce the slope of the infection rate curve by a whopping one percent compared to non…

    A lot of gas was being generated in a small area at the low voltage level; I'm not sure. Here is a brief slow-motion gif I made yesterday from that which I forgot to upload here, showing both the gas bubbles (briefly) and the plasma.

    Not my intent, but I knew it would be perceived that way. Just curious what science a lockdown is based on nowadays?

    I read articles almost daily which conclude the evidence shows they don't work in controlling COVID. Here is one:

    Is there some evidence lockdowns work they are basing this decision on? I read articles every day saying at best the evidence is inconclusive.

    Look, here's what I'm saying: I don't want politics mixed in with my medical decisions! And now that everything is politics, that's all we do! If their side says 'COVID is nothing,' our side has to say it's everything. Trump said it would 'go away like a…
