    Apparently, we aren't actually required to have health insurance after all.

    ---------------------------------
    The solution is to harvest the water on your own property, like we all do in rural New Hampshire.

    But, this would cause people to be less reliant on government.

    I'm surprised that the California lefties aren't crying foul for people becoming more independent.

    Atomic Car Revisited: Thorium Could Power A Vehicle for 100 Years?

    A car that could run for 100 years on one tank of fuel? It sounds like a far-fetched idea, but it is just what a company is apparently claiming possible with the use of an atomic fuel that was abandoned during the Nixon administration. We’re talking about the sounds-too-good-to-be-true substance called “Thorium.”

    “1 gram [of thorium] yields more energy than 7,396 gallons of gas.” By their math, 8 grams of the substance could power a thorium turbine car for a century. This is not the first time this fuel has been suggested for cars. The concept of an automobile use was brought up in the 2011 documentary “The Thorium Dream”:

    For the quarter, about a 14 million dollar loss. Of expenses, depreciation was over 23 million dollars. So, an approximate cash flow of positive 9 million dollars or so for the quarter.

    Tesla Just Took Its First Step Towards Obliterating The Power Companies

    "The coming grid parity of solar-plus-battery systems in the foreseeable future, among other factors, signals the eventual demise of traditional utility business models,"
    -----------------------------------
    This is what I have been referring to. Without storage, alternative sources of electrical power have minimal real potential. Because, they increase the cost of electrical power drastically. But, with storage, alternative power can be used without the need for a grid. All the costs associated with the grid disappears for the alternative/storage user. If Elon Musk can make this work, he will really have something of significance.

    OT BS Latest on effectiveness of mammograms

    Hi Mr. Dude,

    You sure have that right. And that is the problem.

    We have an entrenched group supporting every single test and treatment currently part of medical conventional wisdom. They don't want their tests or treatments removed. They want them to become bigger and more involved.

    Even when there is absolutely no data supporting any significant benefit.

    So, when anybody points out the practical realities of life, in this case the fact that there is no benefit from screening mammograms, that person is demonized.

    Want to reduce medical costs? Want to reduce health insurance premiums? Want to reduce victimization by over treatment?

    Get rid of the stuff that doesn't work. Focus on the stuff that does work.

    This is the approach of basically every industry in America.

    Why isn't this approach being used in the medical field?

    Eventually this will happen. It has to.

    Just my take.

    Best of luck,

    Barbershores

  • Like you hadn't heard this before. The mammogram has a net value to society of zero, if not less than zero. But, comes at a very high overall global cost, and morbidity cost to those over treated with radical therapies.
    Eventually the majority will follow solid statistics, instead of what quacks have pervaded as being part of current medical conventional wisdom.

    Mammograms Do Not Reduce Breast Cancer Deaths, Study Finds

    The study, which included nearly 90,000 women ages 40 to 59, is the latest to question the value of routine mammography. The researchers found the same number of women died of breast cancer over 25 years, regardless of whether they underwent yearly mammograms or not.
