    ​@Mindstorms44 "If you have a gun, you can rob a bank. If you have a bank, you can rob anybody." Actually the United States is way behind in payment processing. Not nearly as familiar with other systems in the world, but just knowing how far we're behind, I can only imagine your banks don't have to deal with the mutli-day clearing house. Admittedly, It's pretty interesting to look behind the curtains on how some of this stuff works that we just take for granted every day.

    @elesjuan very interesting, I'm guessing it's more or less the same in the U.K.?......I didn't know you could literally demand your cash then and there and they have to comply.I've never liked banks at all,the thought of a very rich entity having total control over my hard earned has always made me feel less than happy.

    you can hook up a 5 horsepower engine in the trunk with a 5 and 1/2 in diameter homemade hydrogen cylinder and that running alone producing energy from for dynamos placed at all four corners will produce plenty of energy and keep your batteries charged you can get close to 700 miles on a gallon of fuel which is water and a full charge with your generators running properly

    How much does it weigh, Rich? Acceleration is power divided by weight, plus traction (A=P/W+T). My dad was a teen in the 1950's and T-bucket rods are an icon for "men of a certain age", but my dad gave me the inside scoop. After WWII, cars from the 1920's/30's could be bought by a teen for dirt-cheap prices. In 1949, Oldsmobile and Cadillac had the first modern lightweight V8's, so teens in the 50's would keep an eye out for one of those in the junkyards from a wreck. Stuff a powerful V8 in the T-bucket, lower the body on the framerails, and then pull off the fenders and roof in order to make it light and reduce the cross-section. getting a cheap junkyard rod up to 100-MPH was a badge of honor.
