" "collectible plates"; really?"
OK - maybe those are a little complicated for you. You could start with the toys they pass out at McDonald's.
"I am helping to supply the grid with solar generated electricity"
You're a regular forum heroine.
They are issuing $400 million of new debt and retiring $300 million of old debt. Anyplace other than yuhangtag world that's an increase in debt.
Yes. Apparently the longs believe they're increasing their debt and interest expense for no particular reason. Maybe it just feels good to have some extra cash in the bank. Clearly it's not because they need extra cash.
$400 million in new bonds will raise their debt by another $100 million. But that's just a drop in the bucket compared with their total debt.
"You are not allowed to carry Jet Fuel by plane"
That's only true for the newer models which fly by flapping their wings.
For air freight lithium ion batteries are considered a hazardous material. Exceptions are made for very small ones under these regs. Happy Teslaing.
In the U.S. rules
Cells must not exceed 1.5 g of “equivalent lithium content”;
Batteries must not exceed 8 g of “equivalent lithium content.”
You may calculate “equivalent lithium content” by multiplying the
cell’s or battery’s ampere-hours by 0.3. Since most small batteries
are marked with milliampere-hours, you must first divide milliampere-
hours by 1,000 before multiplying the result by 0.3.
In the international rules
Cells must not exceed 20 Watt-hours;
Batteries must not exceed 100 Watt-hours.
You may calculate Watt-hours by multiplying ampere-hours by
voltage. Since most small batteries are marked with milliamperehours,
you must first divide milliampere-hours by 1,000 before
multiplying the result by the battery’s voltage.
"Obama Hits a New Low for Leadership"
Remember - this is only a new low until the next poll.
Hibachi wouldn't you be happier in Chengdu? There the government is the ultimate expression of liberalism - they have everything you want right now.
They are being buried in the Nevada desert as part of the foundation for the (far in the future) battery plant.
