    Dave I think it would help in a smaller ultralight aircraft such as yours. considering your not carrying a lot of fuel or storing it in the wings like many airplanes. It would also make the plane an ultimate high wing as far as stability. I have to wonder about performance? I think it could be done with an impermeable lightweight bladder or bladders in the wings. It would be funny to have to ty down your plane or have your plane float up off the floor of the hanger. now that's a plane that wants to fly. just depends on the size of the wing. AzNuggetbob

    Fill the wings with helium. AzNuggetBob

  5. Gold We know how, why and for the most part where it forms in the earth's crusts, but do we know with any certainty were it came from? could this help point out where to find it? AzNuggetBob

    Where does gold come from? with AZ Nugget Bob...

    Comets are a very strange anomaly in space. could they be a catalyst of life on earth? or even a source of precious metals? What most people don't consider is things react differently in space than on earth. in many cases its a matter of speed,gravity,temperature and pressure.,or lack of it. oxygen has a tendency to bind to rock but I think the only way a comet could form ice is it must have traveled through a dusty nebula in the recent past to pick up enough oxygen molecules to bind with its hydrogen. If the ratio of hydrogen in space verses oxygen is about a million to one., at least in our galaxy. as far as I know oxygen cannot stay devolved in water in a vacuum. ice skips past the fluid stage and turns to a vapor by sublimation. but I would think the reaction would be fast, within a few minutes, not over a long period of time. Have you ever seen what happens with water a vacuum chamber?, any oxygen present boils off first. so in a way it would make sense that comets are a dusty ball of ice but why would they not just explode into a cloud of hydrogen particles(gas)when in the vacuum of space?. At one time I considered that comets probably came from far off exploding stars,shrapnel so to speak. possibly from other galaxy's, but now I'm not so sure about that. Just thinking out loud.

    In a way I understand what your saying but I don't agree about the oxygen, Hydrogen yes. watch this video. I don't think the vaporizing trail seen around some comets is ice or H2O. Just Hydrogen gas. AznuggetBob

    So what do you do....

    Its up to you Lipca. It looks fairly solid. It is a nice speci by its own right. leave it or slab it and cab it, but I wouldn't crush it. have you tested it for continuity? AzNuggetBob

    Good point Au Seeker Many of those stars are not there anymore, they have exploded or have morphed into red giants,brown or white dwarfs. some are Quasars that appear to be a single bright star and some are just an illusion, gone. but there are many new ones that we won't see with current technology for millions if not billions of years. Talk about oxymoron's. we are currently looking at the past. the greater the distance the older they are or were. AzNuggetBob

    That's the nice thing about numbers, you cant argue with them. they are one of the few things in this world that are constant you can only debate where the numbers came from. but in the end the numbers always win the argument,at least in our galaxy. if you think about it, Hubble is a history machine. Its seeing things that happened billions of years ago. AzNuggetBob

    Only problem is we have only made it down about 40,000 feet! Here is an interesting new update. Now the latest analysis of Hubble's data reveals there could be more than two trillion galaxies—10 times more than previously thought. Typical galaxies, like our Milky Way, have 100 billion stars. That means the total number of stars—or suns out there—is 2, followed by 23 zeros. That's called 200 sextillion and that doesn't include all the planets rotating around them. AzNuggetBob

    Dave I'll give you another little secret. you may be thinking, ok how do I hang a hammock with no tree's, just ad two small wooden wedges. you can pound the rope into a crack in bedrock cliffs or boulders. worked for me. AzNuggetBob

    ArcticDave's Legal Eagle XL

    Ya know Dave now that I think about it. Hammocks fold up real small and lightweight. may be the way to go in your prospecting airplane. and I'll tell ya I learned early on, anything is better than sleeping on the ground. AzNuggetBob

    I know off topic but I spent many a night in my jungle hammock hanging up in the trees. didn't help my back either. but it was stealthy. AzNuggetBob

    Ya I have to agree Saul I learned a lot in that split second after I regained consciousness. A new respect for electricity too. AzNuggetBob

    I buy a lot of my leather on Ebay. If you buy it in large lots you can get it pretty cheap. I got about twenty pounds of 1/4 sides. and some surplus fancy Italian shoe leather too. I dont use it just for knives, I use it for other things too. I prefer oak or vegy tanned. I hear ya on the heat. Its almost like hunting during the day this time of year south of the N.hills. I have a shop outside, I dont use it this time of year unless Im just going to cut some wood (real quick) . I'm still insulating it trying to get a widow air to cool it. so far, no luck on that in this heat. I also have a spare room indoors I use for hobbies. but nothing big enough to fit an airplane in.

    Saul the first experiment I remember most is at about seven I decided I was going to test a wall socket with a bobby pin. It left a lasting impression on me. AzNuggetBob

    Slim Thanks for your post. My personal opinion is that the last extinction was caused by a comet, not an asteroid. Could a comet have blown off enough earth to help create our moon. we have seen what one did to Jupiter. I think its possible, but we already know the moon is over 4 billion years old. but you should also consider the moon has been pummeled with asteroids for well over sixty million years just since the last extinction here on earth, more like (4 billion+) with meteors. So how can you rely on soil samples of the moon? We are still trying to figure out why some meteors/comets explode before they impact and others don't. could it be a matter of how long ago they entered earths atmosphere. the type of rock or metal they are made of, or less oxygen more hydrogen gas back then, less friction? there are a lot of things to consider. you cant go by the conditions today. I think you have to look back at what conditions existed on the earth back then. AzNuggetBob

    These photo's came out a lot better. (daylight) This is how I do the blade cut out., when you look at this stacked pancake style sheath from the side it gets pretty thick. as aposed to a simple folded leather sheath. Here are some other sheaths I'm working on. Im a big fan of the sunburst design simular to the Az. flag. AzNuggetBob
