  • How could I install a 5K BTU air conditioner in the rear window of a Chevy Blazer?

    I installed solar panels on top and around my Chevy Blazer and managed to use 1000 watts give or take on a very sunny day. I thought, why not install an air conditioner in the cargo hatch window? It basically needs under a 1000 watts. I'm also installing a secondary battery in the trunk for that stuff.

  • Which governing perspectives, once understood help to make a person well-understood?

    I know that understanding a person's religious perspective gives an broad view of their thinking, but what other worldly ways exist to understand a person's character and/or thinking habits? Perhaps people assume that I am easy to predict, but I know organizations that thrive on predicting its members' behavior and thinking habits. The prime perspectives to know should not only be diagnosed and understood hierarchically, but the hierarchy should be de-centered or dismantled by being properly unpacked. Objectively unpacking any perspective should naturally reduce the governing principle in competitive interaction.

  • Why do school bus drivers pull the stop sign as they stop, and other drivers pass by, and get a ticket?

    I don't know where these reckless bus drivers come from or why they stop suddenly and at that second or less, pull their stop sign, giving no time for any other drivers to slow down or stay back. When a cop is around, he'll ticket you for passing a school bus -- 6 points. What can be done except seeing a school bus and taking a detour?

  • Can I temporarily rout the cold water line in my house to join the hot water source to warm up frozen pipes?

    If I disconnect both lines at the source and join the cold water line to the hot water source, it should unfreeze any ice in all house pipes. Is this possible or a good idea?

  • Does contention or agreement promote longevity within an organization?

    I always ask myself if, even though I think I am correct, whether it is worth speaking up about the reality or my view of reality, because organizations, like the one I'm in, seem to have shrinking affability, emphasis on performative assessment, and [contrastingly] a sense of trust that comes from conveyed attitudes more than results. Thus, I'm curious about how more camaraderie, collegial support, and trust are promoted, when we (1) choose to argue and disagree, even though we may part ways unresolved at times or (2) agree and de-emphasize differences in opinion.

  • How can the "He said", "She said" problem be best resolved?

    Many authors simply, after a while do not state the name of the character, as in "Ham said..." and "Sam replied...", but state the content of their statements in their conversations, each a separate prompt (minus the characters' names), which the reader "understands" as each respective character. This works if a couple characters are speaking with distinct personae/identities/personalities or genders. If many more characters exist (like, maybe 12), it becomes difficult even if the writer describes each personality well. Alternating before, in the middle of the spoken prompt, and after the prompt, i.e., "...she said", "...and she said...", etc., helps a little, but even the best verbs and their synonyms have to be used in proper contexts, such as "said," vs. "stated," vs. replied," vs. "rejoined," vs. "responded," etc. How do good writers solve these issues differently or ideally?

  • Are ghosts real or are we just getting the tail end of something else here?

    I was in an old apartment building looking on the lower east side for my fresh out-of-pre-law brother-in-law going to Columbia law, helping him with his first month's rent. The studio he/we chose was dingy with some cockroaches, but that's NYC, isn't it? We were joking about the place being haunted, when the it sounded like someone was depositing on the porcelain throne. We checked and no one was there. We spoke to the landlord later and she said a person had been killed in the bathroom a few years ago. Ted said he'll take it. He's into dark voyeurism, so it suits him. We went up there one last time, laughing at the idea of a sh..ting ghost, when we heard similar pops coming from the toilet. We ran and saw a few bubbles rise to the surface from the toilet. Ted said, "That's awesome! I love this place already."

  • Is it okay if a toddler falls asleep while strapped to a safety seat on a bicycle?

    When riding, I usually glance back every few minutes, but sometimes my daughter starts nodding. I stop and we take a water break. She gets sleepy because of the cool breeze, the rhythmic feelings of the bicycle, and the incessant visual stimulation, but is it alright to keep peddling with her head down? She's strapped in, has a safety bar on her child seat on the bike, and we both have helmets.

  • What are ways in which we can we revise Hindu ideas in a pro-aesthetic view rather than a pro-scientific view?

    Vivekananda was a poet. All mystics were poets in all religions, but I'm speaking about Hinduism at the moment. I feel like "warmly rebuking" those patriarchs of the last 100 years about their tendency to make religion scientific because of their desire to participate in western industrial and scientific revolutions. These pseudo-scientific types actively seek scientific reasoning to defend religious principles, when artistic reasoning is clearly and in every example more true, more exact to the actual meaning, and more close to the great spiritual heart. For example, the word "Samkalpa" has been redundantly [and erroneously] equated with some sort of thought-prediction-psychological state of mind, but when artistic thinkers clearly see how imagination is the equivalent of the word. When meditating nama-rupa-japa, the imagination is clearly used to visualized the form of the deity. The process is not some poorly-reasoned state of quantifiable consciousness. Exactness is an art!

  • Would a bus dropped from space into a lake create a tidal wave or burn up in the atmosphere?

    Maybe at least the engine block would make it to earth as a fireball and what would be the splash size then? Would it create a big enough wave in a giant lake, like as big as the Great Salt Lake?

  • I camped at the top of a hill in northern NJ and almost had a fight with a bunch of kids throwing feces at me.

    How should I respond? Should I go back up there with a gang of my own or should I avoid hiking there? I set up a tent and they started throwing things at me through the bushes. Apparently, they were getting a thrill out of it. I ignored it until I realized it was **it, at which time I charged them and they took off, but with little success, since they kept trying to get a rise out of me all night. In the morning, I packed up and left. I used to go hiking there all the time.

  • I met a woman in a bar in NJ, in San Fran, and in Tucson a couple days later, but she denies ever meeting me.?

    I went to a bar in Atlantic City, met a woman named Joanne, with silvery-white (dyed) hair, jeans, a red t-shirt, and sparkle-dust on her cheeks. She said, "Bye, Aaron." I said, "Bye, Joanne." I took an early morning flight to San Fran the next day and went to a bar with my brother there. I met the same woman, Joanne, there, in San Francisco. The next morning, my brother received a call that my step-father had a heart-attack in Tucson. We flew there as soon as we could. On the road, we picked up a hitch hiker, the same woman, Joanne, with the same appearance. She denied ever meeting me, again. I was creeped out and felt so strange that I vomited on the road side. We dropped her off at a bus stop at which time I was asleep from exhaustion. My brother told me that she said, "Bye, Aaron," before we drove off to the hospital where my step-dad was at. How could I meet her again? It's been two days since I left Tucson to come back to NJ. I'm thinking of visiting the bar in NJ again
