>This is the most ridiculous argument I’ve ever heard.

57% of US Greenhouse emissions come from transportation and electricity. Both you can absolutely change yourself. Nothing is stopping you from buying an EV and solar panels with a storage system. And in fact it is cheaper to do so now.

Lets focus on electricity, the average daily electricity consumption of a US residential utility customer is 10 kWh. (Which is very high, but whatever) that means that in a year it will be 3650 kWh. If we price it at 13 cents per kWh that's 475 USD per year. Or a total of 38K USD in 80 years (average lifetime of american).

A 5KW solar panel array will cost you 4.1K USD, in a good day it will produce about 25 kWh. Those will last 25 years. (they will still work after 25 years, just that their output drops about 1% each year).

A 10KWh lifepo4 battery will cost you 4.8K USD. This one will give you 10 000 charge cycles with a 65% DoD (that is about 6.5 kWh each night from the battery), 10 000 charge cycles is 27 years. In reality it might last longer because I don't think you're going to pull more than 6kWh each night out of the battery.

The reason why the battery is 10 kWh and the array produces 25 kWh is because it is an off grid system, so you need the extra to get by during cloudy days and the extra size of the battery helps with the cycle life. If you're going to be on a grid tie system you don't need the battery, and the array can be much smaller.

Giving that the average american lives about 80 years, that means that the battery and panels would have to be replace 3 times (in reality you don't really have to replace it all, those products will still work after 25 years, just that their output power and capacity wont be the same).

Either way, multiplying the total of the panels and battery (8.9K USD) by 3 gives 26.7K USD. 30% less of what you would otherwise pay on electricity with the somewhat overkill conditions I used. And of course you don't have to go and dump 8.9K USD at once, you can start with a small system that can be expanded in the future.

And I haven't touch wind power, microwind turbines are cheaper than solar panels and don't need as much battery storage. If you live in an area with average wind speeds over 8mph they are absolutely worth it.

Edit: Just in case, I know I didn't add the cost of the inverter and the solar controller, those two don't have that much of an impact in the total either way.

Worth noting that even though a grid tie system sounds better than an off grid one, it's got several issues, at large scale it isn't easy to implement because the utility company will have to deal administrating the extra production of the solar panels (which doesn't match with the peak hours of demand), also if the grid goes down you can't get power out of the panels as well. It all goes down. And finally you might end up paying back to the electric company because they usually pay you less for the kWh that you produce, as well charge you more in peak hours.

Edit2. The batteries as well can be gotten way cheaper by buying them used, there are lots of those.

Edit3: Here are the panels and batteries that I used for my calculations.

(50 of those for a 5KW array).


12.8V 100AH (1.28 kWh) 600$. (8 of those for 10 kWh). Need BMS.

I also realized of an error in the calculations and the total of the panels is way less, either way even with the mistake it was 10% cheaper than the grid.

If you are genuinely interested this book does a pretty good job explaining it in an entertaining way. Some people are obsessed.

My studfinder is shit. My old boss had a seriously nice one for about $60 that had ~12 LED's that would light up in succession around a stud (mine was $15 and had a wildly inaccurate single LED).

Still, find an outlet, measure 16" from one side and start knocking. Then punch a bunch of skinny nails through in 1/4" increments wherever it feels solid. If you're gonna mount a TV in your apartment, a few tiny nailholes (especially in a row that are super easy to spackle over) aren't gonna ruin your deposit. Then pull 16" from that nailhole and there should be another stud. I've hung 6 tv's in the last 5 years, it's not rocket science.

Edit: it's actually only $50 on Amazon ProSensor 710 Franklin Sensors ProSensor 710 Precision Stud Finder Yellow

I have this one and it works pretty well.

Sounds like a rip off of Lansdale's novel trilogy, The Drive-In.

I think it is a house brand version of Ex-Lax chocolate. I work at a pharmacy, and checked the ingredients, coco powder is the first listed. A dog that size is almost certainly alright after eating a relatively small amount of chocolate. I would be more worried about the laxative in them, but I'm not a vet.

And why wouldn't they be legal?

Look at the Bubblegum ones if you want the ones with coloration and wrappers.

I wonder if this would work:

It works wonders when someone scuffs your car and leaves superficial scratches and paint smudges.

>I've installed a shitload of doors

>I really should let my landlord know about that

Certainly someone with a shitload of experience could probably install a door sweep in about 60 seconds. Why even bother your landlord with that?

This is a tool you need! I switched from a traditional wall-irregularity finder to one of these and it leveled up my handyman skill.

Seriously a bidet is pretty much a pressure water up your ass. They are only $25 and pretty awesome

People who use acrylic balls for contact juggling have to keep them in a pouch or bag. If left out, they have a tendency to start fires. Not fun!

This is the exact one I ordered.

> Fast & Easy Installation

>This unobtrusive design mounts between the toilet seat and rim of any two-piece toilet (that is, where the tank is a separate unit). All it takes is a screwdriver and 10 to 20 minutes of your time. The mounting bars allow for adjustment to align with the holes on your toilet rim. And because the Astor Bidet operates on water pressure alone, there's no worry about electrical connections.

>The Astor Bidet comes complete with all the necessary hoses and adapters, plus installation and operating instructions.

I had to beg and beg my husband to let us install one. Now that we have it, he raves about it! He says he feels filthy using the bathroom anywhere else. This one isn't heated like some, but I find that I don't mind the room temperature water at all.

Okay "bro" are a few things to ready about beyond football so you can catch up on health information too. Ive checked these off my list..maybe you should to before you get Cancer if you havent already. Ill warn you now though...these might not be mainstream thought so you may feel offended by their contents. Bon Apetite!

ps. Cigars cause Cancer.

Does your mom know you are up past your bedtime? No dessert for a week young man!

But seriously, considering saving your allowance and investing in this book. You sorely need it.

We use Gaia gps, generally, and this book to plan trips. Between the two we almost never get lost. And when we do get lost it's only a little bit, 30 mins to an hour at worst lol.

I dunno what he said because it's deleted now but I typed in "Butler's Cheater bottle opener" into google and got these two amazon results in the event you're still looking into buying one.
