• Flyguy and fire-bombing.

    From Anthony William Sloman@21:1/5 to All on Sun Mar 20 00:18:45 2022
    Flyguy has this nasty habit of claiming that I want to fire bomb my own country.

    There was a thread about electric aircraft, and Flyguy came up with an accident report about an ultralight aircraft that had caught on fire. essentially because it's owner had abused the batteries.

    I suggested that it would make sense to dump an overheating battery pack before it caught on fire.

    Flyguy over-simplified this into a recommendation that the pilot dumped burning batteries.

    He seems to have decided that batteries can only have two states "okay" or "on fire".

    In reality, batteries always self-discharge to some extent, so they are always a bit warmer than ambient.

    This doesn't get to be a problem until the self-heating gets to a point where it starts increasing the self-discharge rate.

    At some point the battery can eventually go into thermal runaway, when the battery temperature starts rising rapidly and the battery pack can eventually catch on fire.

    If you monitor the internal temperature of the battery pack, you can recognise when this is starting to happen - long before the battery catches on fire - and dump the batteries.

    If you make sure that battery pack breaks up as you dump it, it won't get as hot and may never ever catch on fire.

    So it shouldn't look like a bunch of fire bombs before it hits the ground.

    If you pick up on the temperature rise early enough, the individual cells should never get hot enough to catch on fire once they have been spread out enough not to warm up their neighbors.

    All this is much to complicated for Flyguy to process, though I have explained it from time to time. It may be that he really is a stupid as he looks, or he may not feel the need to put in the effort required to realise that he's being an idiot.

    Bozo Bill is a blatant troll...


    Bozo Bill Sloman, the most frequent troll in this group, is an attention-craving chronic liar who cannot be reasoned with...

    "the Mueller investigation was about Trump only because Trump made it so"
    (Bozo paraphrased)

    "the concepts "male" and "female" are essentially social constructions"
    (Bill Sloman)

    Bill is a blatant troll...

    I'm sure that it makes John Doe happy to think that. He's in the same league of blatant anonymous trolls as Flyguy, and shares Flyguy's habit of postiing his fatuous delusions as if they were facts. His problem - like Flyguy - is that he's nothing but a
    troll. He doesn't know anything about electronic design, and mostly posts right-wing political nonsense that has nothing to do with electronic design.

    My opinion is that he's mainly an obnoxious creep, but that's just my opinion.

    <I snipped the rest of his recycled insults - they weren't worth posting when he originally came up with them>

    Hey SNIPPERMAN, how is what YOU said DIFFERENT from what I said? You think it is a good idea to drop BURNING BATTERIES from AIRCRAFT onto very parched, record drought country that has experienced UNPRECEDENTED WILDFIRES.

    Now, I tried to educate your sorry ass in the rules of aviation, but you, being the brain-dead person you are, said things like I am not a certified, licensed pilot (false), which can be easily checked with the FAA (again, you refused). I further
    suggested that you contact YOUR OWN aviation authority, the Civil Aviation Safety Authority, CASA (https://www.casa.gov.au/). You, of course, REFUSED.

    Your pursuit of IGNORANCE is unrivaled on SED (except, perhaps, by DecayedBrainMatter).

    That is different from what you posted. I'll leave you to work out how.

    wouldn't last long if they tried to fly an aircraft.

    Why would I bother?

    I certainly find a lot of ignorance here. I don't actually pursue it, but when it does get thrust in my face I do name it for what it is. Decadent Linux User Numero Uno doesn't get all that much wrong, whereas you can't even spell his name right (or mine
    for that matter). Like every other idiot you excuse yourself because you are making a joke, but only an idiot like you makes the same feeble joke time and time again.

    Why would I bother?

    To educate your sorry ass, you fool.

    Your pursuit of IGNORANCE is unrivaled on SED (except, perhaps, by DecayedBrainMatter).
    I certainly find a lot of ignorance here. I don't actually pursue it, but when it does get thrust in my face I do name it for what it is. Decadent Linux User Numero Uno doesn't get all that much wrong, whereas you can't even spell his name right (or
    mine for that matter). Like every other idiot you excuse yourself because you are making a joke, but only an idiot like you makes the same feeble joke time and time again.

    The hell you don't - you go out of your way to be ignorant, like not talking to CASA, you dumb shit.

    Hey Sloman, how is what YOU said DIFFERENT from what I said?
    You said that wings have to be chopped off to drop batteries.

    He did. He also seems to think that nobody would even think about dumping the batteries until after they had caught on fire, which is remarkably dumb.

    You think it is a good idea to drop BURNING BATTERIES from AIRCRAFT
    onto very parched, record drought country that has experienced UNPRECEDENTED WILDFIRES.

    We saw pictures of the accident site. Green, grassy land.

    That accident, Einstein, was in NEW ZEALAND!

    Nothing I wrote was specific to any one country. Dumping over-heating batteries before they catch on fire - ideally early enough so that they are never going to catch on fire - is always a good idea, provided that you don't actually dump them onto
    somebody.

    Now, I tried to educate your sorry ass in the rules of aviation, but you, being the brain-dead person you are, said things like I am not a certified, licensed pilot (false),

    Actually I didn't, but his reading comprehension is specialised in seeing what he wants to see.

    Hardware is certified, Airmen are Certificated. Drivers are licensed.

    Sorry, but the FAA CERTIFIES pilots and LICENSES them. I do have a CERTIFICATE attesting to same.

    An anonymous troll can make all kinds of claims. Perhaps the certificate has a date on it? Maybe it's even still valid, even though it clearly shouldn't be.

    Putting an idiot in control of even a light aircraft endangers all the people he might crash it onto.

    More lies by SNIPPERMAN as he has NOTHING on which to base this lie. What SNIPPERMAN DOESN'T know is that I have FAR MORE flight hours than your typical private pilot, at 5,000. This is even more than commercial pilots which may list 20,000 hours or more
    because MOST of their "flying" is actually done by an autopilot - they are NOT flying AT ALL!

    If you kept flying for long enough you could clock up that many hours. If I remember rightly, even a private pilot in Australia has to clock up a minimum number of hours per year to maintain their certification.

    Who is eligible to access the PRD?
    * The responsible person ...
    * The authorized user ...
    * The pilot — an individual certificated by the FAA at the Commercial, Airline Transport Pilot, or Remote Pilot level

    FAA web pages for the general public will sometimes use "license" to

    He probably meant the specific regulation, but why would I bother? When I was an undergraduate, one of my fellow students was studying engineering as part of a plan to be come a commercial pilot, and building up flying hours in his spare time. I'm just
    reporting what I remember of our conversations on the subject. He also kept a collection of newspaper clippings about private pilots who had ended up dead after flight accidents. There were quite a few of them. That was sixty years ago. Private pilots
    do seem to keep on crashing. His sister was an air hostess, and she once let me look into the cockpit of the plane that was flying me home to Tasmania on an end-of-term break. She seemed to think that I'd want to, and I was polite enough to act as if I
    did.

    Flyguy of course thinks that the batteries have to be on fire before anybody would dump them. That's a rather more relevant error, but not one that he's gong to recognise.

    That isn't what I get out of it. He recognizes that they shouldn't be
    dumped if they *are* on fire. The airplane must remain flying until
    the fire goes out.

    Flyguy has this nasty habit of claiming that I want to fire bomb my

    There was a thread about electric aircraft, and Flyguy came up with
    an accident report

    Hey SNIPPERMAN, how is what YOU said DIFFERENT from what I said?

    You said that wings have to be chopped off to drop batteries.

    He did. He also seems to think that nobody would even think about dumping the batteries until after they had caught on fire, which is remarkably dumb.

    You think it is a good idea to drop BURNING BATTERIES from AIRCRAFT onto very parched, record drought country that has experienced UNPRECEDENTED WILDFIRES.

    We saw pictures of the accident site. Green, grassy land.

    That accident, Einstein, was in NEW ZEALAND!

    Nothing I wrote was specific to any one country. Dumping over-heating batteries before they catch on fire - ideally early enough so that they are never going to catch on fire - is always a good idea, provided that you don't actually dump them
    onto somebody.

    Now, I tried to educate your sorry ass in the rules of aviation, but you, being the brain-dead person you are, said things like I am not a certified, licensed pilot (false),

    Actually I didn't, but his reading comprehension is specialised in seeing what he wants to see.

    Hardware is certified, Airmen are Certificated. Drivers are licensed.

    Sorry, but the FAA CERTIFIES pilots and LICENSES them. I do have a CERTIFICATE attesting to same.

    He's more likely to have been certified as a lunatic, but he wouldn't tell us about that.

    An anonymous troll can make all kinds of claims. Perhaps the certificate has a date on it? Maybe it's even still valid, even though it clearly shouldn't be.

    Hey SLOMAN, YOU are the troll that makes "all kinds of claims".

    I'm sure that it makes you happy to claim that, but it doesn't happen to be true.

    I deal with FACTS. My certificate DOES have an issue date on it, and once it is issued it is valid unless it is revoked.

    Flyguy likes to think that he deals with "facts" but he "deals" with the ones he doesn't like by ignoring them.

    More lies by SNIPPERMAN as he has NOTHING on which to base this lie.

    Not that Flyguy can be bothered to identify which observation he doesn't like. Flyguy's idiocy gets paraded here at regular intervals, but he doesn't seem to realise quite how obvious his idiocy is.

    What SNIPPERMAN DOESN'T know is that I have FAR MORE flight hours than your typical private pilot, at 5,000.

    You may assert this, but nobody knows whether you are telling the truth.

    This is even more than commercial pilots which may list 20,000 hours or more because MOST of their "flying" is actually done by an autopilot - they are NOT flying AT ALL!

    If you kept flying for long enough you could clock up that many hours. If I remember rightly, even a private pilot in Australia has to clock up a minimum number of hours per year to maintain their certification.

    Hey Sloman, you just reeled off a whole SHIT LOAD of lies, but let's just deal with the last one: PROVE "even a private pilot in Australia has to clock up a minimum number of hours per year to maintain their certification." And quote the SPECIFICATE
    regulation, you idiot.

    He probably meant the specific regulation, but why would I bother?

    Because you don't have any FUCKING IDEA what you are talking about, that's why - and you just ADMITTED it, you stupid fool. In fact, there IS NO requirement to fly a minimum number hours, you idiot, and MANY don't fly any at all. What is required of OZ
    private pilots (as opposed to commercial and airline pilots) is a biannual proficiency check.

    When I was an undergraduate, one of my fellow students was studying engineering as part of a plan to be come a commercial pilot, and building up flying hours in his spare time. I'm just reporting what I remember of our conversations on the subject. He
    also kept a collection of newspaper clippings about private pilots who had ended up dead after flight accidents. There were quite a few of them.

    There are even MORE that kill themselves driving cars.

    That was sixty years ago. Private pilots do seem to keep on crashing.

    As do commercial pilots, airline pilots and car drivers - each activity has inherent risks.

    His sister was an air hostess, and she once let me look into the cockpit of the plane that was flying me home to Tasmania on an end-of-term break. She seemed to think that I'd want to, and I was polite enough to act as if I did.

    You wouldn't know what you were looking at, so it would have been a waste of your time, all though you waste it about 20 hours a day with your stupid replies to SED.

    Putting an idiot in control of even a light aircraft endangers all the people he might crash it onto.

    Yeah, SNIPPERMAN, you should NEVER consider becoming a pilot!!!!!!

    In your ever-so-expert and only moderately demented opinion.

    No, Sloman, YOU think that - I don't think they are safe enough to even consider their use in cars, let alone aircraft.

    You don't have a clue about battery condition monitoring. That size of multi-cell battery needs a minimum of two temperature sensors - one at the core of the battery to monitor how hot the cells are getting and another on the surface to give an indicator
    of ambient temperature. You need to keep track of the current flowing into or out of the battery, and the voltage across the terminals, and a moderately power microcontroller to make sense of what's going on.

    Four more temperature sensors (at least) spread around the central sensor could give you early warning of a local hotspot. The parts aren't expensive, and squeezing extra wires into a multi-cell battery array isnt going to cost much either.

    Once you've got that, you can make them much more reliable and a whole lot safer. Even the kind of battery you might use to back up rooftop solar needs that kind of monitoring though this doesn't seem to be universally appreciated - at a job interview
    a few years ago I did find myself pointing this out. It seemed to go down well at the time, but I didn't get the job.

    That isn't what I get out of it. He recognizes that they shouldn't be dumped if they *are* on fire. The airplane must remain flying until the fire goes out.

    Flyguy misses the ironic point, as usual.

    Hey SNIPPERMAN, I think you mean BREED. I am a FAR BETTER pilot than that person's boyfriend, obviously, because I haven't killed myself in 5,000 hours and decades of flying. Just a momentary lapse of skill or attention can be disastrous, which is why
    you should NEVER consider being a pilot - you have COPIOUS instances of lapses.

    You wouldn't know what you were looking at, so it would have been a waste of your time,

    Obviously not. I couldn't tell an air speed indication from an artificial horizon from any of the engine condition dials from the cockpit door. It did look a bit like the control panel for the counter-current continuous digestor at the paper mill
    where my father was research manager at the time (where he'd introduced computer control, but all the sensed parameters were still shown on dials, and the occasional chart recorder).

    You couldn't tell the difference between a control yoke and a flap handle, but you THINK you are an aviation expert - GO FIGURE!

    That's a bit easier that identifying dials from the cockpit door. Flap handles work in one dimension, and control yokes can rotate as well as moving up and down.You don't have to be an aviation expert (which I've never claimed to be) to be aware of that.

    It was, which is why I had to feign interest out of politeness.

    The ONLY thing you "feign" is a glimmer of intelligence. although you waste it about 20 hours a day with your stupid replies to SED.

    I don't bring the full power of my intellect to bear in this forum - it isn't quite the right place to do that.

    Replies that you have decided must be stupid, because you can't process them. They don't take more than about an hour a day. I can probably type faster than you can, which does give me a flying start.

    They are stupid because they ARE STUPID!

    They are stupid because Flyguy thinks that they are stupid? Even Flyguy should be able to work out the problem with that, but he is remarkably stupid.

    Putting an idiot in control of even a light aircraft endangers all the people he might crash it onto.

    Yeah, SNIPPERMAN, you should NEVER consider becoming a pilot!!!!!!

    In your ever-so-expert and only moderately demented opinion.

    You can - and will - think what you want - I KNOW the truth! I have also won our international soaring contest on multiple days that involves thousands of competitors.
    That's gliding. Sailplanes may be light aircraft, but glider pilots are a different breed of cat. They also die. One of my wife's graduate students gave up on her Ph.D. after her boyfriend got himself killed in just such a competition.

    The "truth" you know is what you want to know, which doesn't seem to have all that much to do with the real world.

    I am a FAR BETTER pilot than that person's boyfriend, obviously, because I haven't killed myself in 5,000 hours and decades of flying.

    You claim to be a far better pilot because you claim to have survived 5,000 hours of your own piloting, but you are an anonymous troll and have never posted a shred of evidence to support your claims. Even if you had survived 5000 hours of your own
    piloting (which isn't all that plausible) you could just be lucky, and that person's boyfriend could have been an even better pilot, but rather less lucky.

    Just a momentary lapse of skill or attention can be disastrous, which is why you should NEVER consider being a pilot - you have COPIOUS instances of lapses.

    But not sustained lapses. Even in an aircraft, you mostly have a few seconds in which to correct an error of action. There are accident reports about cases where the lethal error happened at exactly the wrong moment, but there aren't many of them.

    Flyguy does seem to have entirely lost the plot. Why he would think that escapes me. Nobody else here has complained that I lie. He doesn't like me being sceptical about his more implausible claims, but that doesn't make me any kind of liar, much though

    As a claim it is silly enough to constitute a lie, but Flyguy is too deluded to held responsible in that sort of way.
