WOW!! On evolution: If it were true, then monkeys would still be evolving into humans. Prove to me that they are, then I might give your theory some thought. As someone has already said, humans did not evolve from monkeys. That's another lie that evangelical hucksters tell their gullible followers....

The witches at Salem were hanged for the most part. Some were crushed under rocks. Burning a human to death is tricky, messy and time-consuming.

Does humidity affect cooling? I forget. Bear in mind that all inverters have less capacity in heat, unless they are overbuilt to start with. Most won't tell you that though. When the better ones say continuous, they mean it. So a 2000 watt $2000 inverter may actually run at rated power. On the foru...

(Psst. It's considered bad form to keep quoting a picture like that, as it apparently means that more bandwidth is sucked from the host site. We don't want to be bad parasites, do we?) Browsers cache images. You can quote the same image a hundred times and it doesn't increase the bandwidth drain.
