+2 1. Wotty1 commented 4 years ago on video A reality check on renewables - David MacKay on TED

Mmhh!
The UK is currently producing over 25% from renewables (Wikipedia 2019) Not 10%
Here in Brighton 20+ MegaWatts come from burning rubbish, 18+ MegaWatts come from burning sewage gas. 400MW comes from the Rampion wind farm (Plate rating).
The UK land area is not the only area available for windfarms, We have our sovereign sea area as well.
There is no mention of tidal energy at all.
A good talk, when was this made?
It is sadly very poor in current accuracy.

0 6. Wotty1 commented 6 years ago on video The Bayesian Trap

Sadly his Math is not correct.
He assumes that your probability of you having the disease is the same for the probability of the incidence in the population.
OK.......
BUT
You have gone to the doctor with an ailment, the rest of the population have not.
AND
The doctor thinks you may have the disease, they do not think that of the rest of the population
SO
The probability therefore is many times that of the incidence in the population.
So in total:-
Not 9%, more like greater than 90%

So,

Here is a highly intelligent young man.
He is immersed in the bible propaganda in his environment and trying to equate it with his understanding of the real world..

The guy in the suit is sticking some sharp object into the victims, simulating stings from the fictitious bees.
This goes far beyond a prank and is actually aggravated assault in my opinion.

OK
In Paris in this area are many fake disabled people preying on the passerby.
I passed two within two minutes recently, trying an identical scam.
I have traveled widely but to find two con artists with the same act within 100m was unbelievable!
Bent over, shawl, crutch, shoe half kicked off etc. they make me very angry because,
In this environment, the passerby will walk on.

Try this again in any French town, even Calais or Boulogne and you'll get a very different reaction.

0 25. Wotty1 commented 7 years ago on video The Terrafugia TF-X

I'm really sorry, but I really don't know where to start.
Just a few things.
300hp is not 1MW it's at best 225kW
OK maybe they mean 1MW for take off only?

225 kW for 200 mph?? and charge the batteries for landing and take off?
Where does the energy come from? 300hp won't make that thing go at 200mph apart from in a dive.

Ducted fans, where? maybe one? hidden in the back but where was the air intake?

Weight. The thing is large, where is it's centre of lift when in ducted fan mode?
It looks far too far to the rear.

I await enlightenment from the inventors.

I used one reply once, I copied it from a comedian and modified it a bit:-
It went like this:-

I have never seen a lab behave like this.
Perhaps there is an un-diagnosed illness or cancer??

We kept bulldogs when I was a child and one turned nasty. I was only about 4 or 5 but my parents had her put down after warning us to stay away.

Even if he is able to cow and control her I would never trust her. I'm sorry, she needs to be put down, especially if there are any children in the house.

0 33. Wotty1 commented 7 years ago on video Lightning in slow motion

It's a bit complex but here goes....
The static electricity in the cloud builds to such a voltage that the air is ionized and a conductive path opens to earth.
Current flows along this path and in doing so creates a large magnetic field.
The cloud is now discharged and the current stops causing the magnetic field to collapse.
The collapse in the magnetic field induces the current back into the cloud recharging the cloud.
The path is now very ionised and the charge now flows back to earth through the channel creating a magnetic field again.
The lightning bounces up and down from the cloud.
This cycle repeats several times (about 7ish) this is why lightning flickers.

+2 34. Wotty1 commented 7 years ago on video RAW: Sakurajima volcano erupts 50km from nuclear plant in Japan

The nuclear industry would never be that stupid.
I mean, they would never put multiple reactors next to a fault line such that a tsunami would knock them out and cause them to melt down or put the spent fuel rods on the roof of the reactor so they would fall into the fire increasing the mess.

No, not the nuclear industry, they are safe, safe, safe.
