Pacific Ring Weave

(Kim Cowdroy) #24


I thought to call it “diagonal” since the join is on a slant. Not joining up two opposing corners put me off.

The other name I thought of was “fishbone” though with no actual spine to it, I also dropped this one.

Anyway, “D” it is for that Ring-Web System from now on (instead of “V”).

(But I am still thinking about that crane!)

More about FAD (fish aggregating device) in a fish tank (aquarium).
Probably I will cut some weights off so it can float.

During the cool off period please enjoy some rubber ducky pictures:

Meanwhile I went to the city dump. I thought, I would reenact the Alice’s Restaurant
Massacre. All I found was people with pickup trucks and trailers full of garbage.
And I saw lots of garbage trucks. The “garbage maffia”, well, I donno. I just saw working people.
The whole place looked like and episode of Dirty Jobs.

I also saw some tire places with lots of used car tires stored there. My understanding is that
some people have licenses to haul used tires. And they get paid for it.

I have read somewhere, Australian coal prices went up. Chinese electric generation was or is
dependent on Australian coal. In China the coal was substituted with burning used tires.
Used tires were shipped from US to China, and there was some money in it.
So people in china purchased shipment of US used car tires. Anyways, I would hope that is over.
I do not want to pay for getting the tires, but I would rather be paid.

Anyways, just a few thought about the tires.
