    Has your idea ever been done over a major city and had any success?

     

    100m seems a bit low? I live near Wall Centre in Van....it stands 150m tall...wouldn't want to fly a big plane like that so close to buildings....

     

    Those water bombers are soo cool though, I used to watch them fill up at Nanoose Bay as a kid.

    I don't know the exact values but I think it can be done, or even using helicopters on small releases instead going it all at once. The technology is there so let's use it right?

     

    Why not drones too? Ok maybe drop 7tons over it will create problems but how about drones releasing 10 or 20kgs of water 1 after another on a precise targeting?

     

    I think the technology is there and we can use it

    Interesting....has that been done over a city before?

     

    I got my info from this....I know you said 'not directly'

    https://www.cnbc.com/2019/04/15/trump-encourages-france-to-use-flying-water-tankers-for-notre-dame-fire.html

    “If you hit that with tons of water from above, that’s going to collapse the entire structure and make the situation worse,” said Wayne McPartland, a retired New York City Fire Department battalion chief. “If you miss, you might hit civilians in the street.”

    Not hitting directly because yes that will be bad

     

    Imagine this. Get one of those high pressure water hoses, if you shoot it directly you will hit and cause damage

     

    BUT let's suppose I point it up and shoot it, it will not hurt you but will create an "artificial rain" that will wash you gently and around you because you're spreading the water over a large area

     

    If you get a water bomber and drop the water let's say at 100m or more you will not be unleashing the water to the ground at full force but the air will do the job of spreading the water over a larger area since the water will encounter resistance util it reaches the ground. The higher the distance more drag the water will suffer and since the amount of water dropped is tiny compared to the air around it (since it wasn't raining there) the final velocity will not be huge 

     

    I think it can be done, cropduster pilots do all the time, they release the water above us at 100m or more and for us in the ground we feel it's like a common rain

    Yep, water bombing could damage surrounding buildings too while also being a concern for civilians if the target was missed. 

     

    Whoever suggested this idea should stick to what he knows.....oh wait, never mind.

    The concept is not directly water bomb  because yes it will be a bad idea it but create an indirect effect

     

    You drop the water high enough to bring moisture to the atmosphere, do it enough and you can induce a light rain over a large area, so instead directly doing it you're spreading water over a large area which your target is inside it and also avoids fire propagation 

     

    Let's say 8 tons of water at 100m above the target, will not damage the target will will surely add a lot of moisture to the local air 

     

    This happen all the time in the Amazon, a single rain nearby can unleash a large effect over a huge area because you added moisture...

    I'm almost certain that a water bomber is a bad idea. If you're trying to save the art and wooden architecture, you're far too late. Dropping thousands of litres of water on the remains all at once isn't going to help. 

    Not dropping directly but above it creating a cloud of moisture in order to provoke a light rain over the entire area

    Different kind of ride. Shoot. 

     

     

    2002 Honda civic "fully loaded" which meant ac and power windows! 

    1)  we need more details...

     

    2) hope you 2 knew how do trig in grade 11 or else:bigblush::lol:


  6. And hell yeah kudos to Portugal.

     

    One of the greatest empires during the "great navigation era"

     

    A tiny little country with sons around the planet. We might make fun of them but without Lisbon the world would not be so great...

     

    Their Portuguese is old, archaic and with a wierd accent...

     

    They call the "Brazilian Portuguese" as a "rebellian language spoken by pirates"...

     

    They might look a bunch of grumpy sailors, Jesuits and fishermen...

     

    But they always looked to the horizon thinking how far they could go...

     

    But it's Portugal...

     

    Our fathers, our discoverers, we speak their language, we share their values we have many "Francisco", "Silva" and many others...

     

    Hell yeah to Portugal. 

     

    Small in size big in history

    I am not talking in a portuguese forum, mate. When i do, i shall care for my portuguese. I comment about your English when your comments don't make sense, not when you mis-spell something. But hey, i guess kids like you need the last word, even when they are literally incoherent throughout the entire discussion.

     

    You thank God you're not on a Portuguese forum because Brazilians might be aggressive sometimes...

     

    But our colonizers are waaaaayyyyyyyyy more aggressive...

     

    You know. Portugal...

     

    Even today they say "the former colonies" don't speak the mother language properly like the great kings....

    Well, correcting spelling is the only argument you have left, congratulations. 

    You said my English is ineffective...

     

    Well here we go your Portuguese is not good enough....

     

    Maybe you should look on a map to see if you can find this "Sao Paolo"

     

    Because an average Canadian don't have to know Portuguese to know it. Since Canada is a dual language country if English is not good enough they just try French and the pronounce is pretty much the same as in Portuguese...

     

    Translation...

     

    An average "inferior" Canadian know a Latin language meaning that any regular Canadian will learn a Latin language a lot easier...

    But there are better systems. Canadian education system *is* better than that in Mali. Singapore's education system *IS* better than Canada's. Harvard's education standard *is* higher than university of Sao Paolo


    Your argument is irrelevant to the discussion about quality of education. 

    It's SÃO PAULO

     

    SÃO PAULO

     

    Literally means "Saint Paul" in Portuguese 

     

    I have no idea where this "Sao Paolo" means...

     

    Maybe it's next to Rio de Janiero or Coritiba...

    Again, your exception case scenario is irrelevant to the discussion about how a SYSTEM works or should work. If you were not gonna go to school, i bet your parents would've forced you to. And if they wouldn't, that'd be a parenting fail.

    That's part of a wonderful thing called "life"...

     

    50/50

     

    Luckily they got a very dedicated boy who loved school so they never had to worry about so we will never know "what if"...

     

    There's no such thing as "perfect system" 

     

    Each one has a different shape and each system has good and bad things...

     

    And this is valid for everyone here...


  11. 9 minutes ago, canuckistani said:

    So answer my question - the days you didnt wanna go to school, your parents let you stay home, correct ? 

    We are not forcing our kids either. We told our kids it'd help them, explained to them why and they are 100% committed. Therefore, your comments are again, irrelevant. 

     

    I could do...

     

    But here's a thing...

     

    I never missed school, not even when sick. I loved my schools and friends there...

     

    Again. I had absolute freedom...


  12. 12 minutes ago, canuckistani said:

    What has freedom got to do with education standards ? You think kids should have the freedom to not go to school if they don't want to ? 

    So your parents never once forced you to go to school when you said 'i dont wanna go to school today'

    Lets talk when you ACTUALLY have children and see where you stand. Its easy to blowhard when you have zero stakes in the situation. 

    No. I went to school by own choice, they only presented me the consequences of what would happen if i decided not to...

     

     

    I have a 7 year old nephew. His mom never forced him anything yet he became interested on science especially on nautical engineering and  quantum physics...

     

    And I follow the same "school" because this is me who bring the little one to the nautical environments to show him what he wants...

     

    It's great see a kid enjoying things because he's actually interested 

     

     

    Sounds odd to you but yes people can go to schools because they enjoy it

    There is no difference because i am not telling my kids what destination to choose w.r.t their careers. I am not going to let them get a substandard education and therefore have less skills and therefore, less choices due to it. 

     

    If nobody went illiterate in your family, then your argument against education completely falls apart, not to mention, the previous comment of yours.  Again, why are you arguing on devaluing education ? 

    Because something called FREEDOM 

     

    Freedom gives you 50/50

     

    You can succeed or not, let kids fail is part of learning the process

     

    Our family formed qualified people because of this...

     

    See what you do best and go for it. 

     

    Freedom of choices also includes freedom of letting people fail...

     

    When you open the fields people will work happy, they will do great on an optimistic environment knowing that they will be able to explore including let people fail...

     

    Nobody is illiterate here for this reason...

     

    Explore and discover and do it good...

     

    Nobody forced anything here...

     

    No tutors, no hovering...

     

    Just plain simple "go there, decide and dedicate yourself as hard as you can"

     

     

    You said people approach on different angles...

     

    Ok. My "angle" is the "feel free to explore"

    There is a vast difference between telling kids they must pick X as a career and telling kids that non-performance in school is non-negotiable. Have fun with illiterate kids, i suppose and if they do turn out illiterate because they didn't want to study and you did nothing, the fault lies with you as a parent for failing to impart skills to your child. 

    With one difference...

     

    They will decide their own destination...

     

    They will be free to choose...

     

    My family gave me free choice as well for my sister. One is an extremely highly qualified court judge and I'm a well respected pilot...

     

    Nobody went illiterate, pretty much the opposite...
