Germany actually *teaches* their children in public schools...
they learn german, english, and a TRADE.
So, when germans get out of public school, they have SKILLS....
The goal of their education system is PLACEMENT in a job. You apprentice at a workplace while in school.
USA's education system profits $$ from their system, but MUCH LESS than german system.
USA makes money from teachers, administrators salaries. Everyone in the system gets a chunk in their pockets....
Germany teaches the young. These people then go out and are PRODUCTIVE in their workplace. They profit orders of magnitude greater than we do, because education = money.
We just take the money and put it in our pockets, and our society does not advance.
That is our culture. We see $$ signs, not long term gain. If we can take the money right now, screw the kids and their futures, and we get rich NOW.
Hmmm... I'm guessing something went wrong, since I see only two files tagged with today's date (One is the "_Files-Missing-Text-Explaination" directory, the other is "attachment description.txt"), and nothing showing "tesla" or "turbine" or "rotor" or anything else I can think of to look for in the list of what's there. The "attachement..." seems, from the text inside it, as though it would be the correct file for your TT pix, but lists no filenames.
Or am I stupid?
The first thing I do when I buy new software is duplicate the CDs onto CD-R blanks. Then I label them using a "Sharpie" Ultra Fine Point permanent felt marker which writes with a very fine line. (Never try to use a ball point, or anything other than a felt tip pen!) If the software requires a serial number or registration code, I also write that on the CD copy *and* on the original "master" CD (that way you can still install the software if you lose the original CD case or sleeve that has the code).
The originals are never used again: they are kept for archival (back-up) purposes; I install and work from the CD-R copies. Considering how cheap CD-R discs are (and the CD-RW drives), it is very cheap insurance against breakage, scratches, warping, delamination, etc.
I've never lost the use of any software using this methodology.
Note: When you buy software, you are not buying the CD, you are buying a license to install and use the software. If you damage a CD, you should be able to send it back to the publisher and get a replacement for a nominal fee. Technically, the same is true if you lose the original CD, although you have to prove that you legally purchased a license for that software, which is a little more involved than simply sending back a damaged original disc. Nevertheless, getting a replacement disc involves some time, money, and hassle. Much cheaper and easier to simply copy all your CDs from the start.
Uh, germany has one of the highest unployments rates of any developed nation.
I wouldn't sign this (and the rest of what you said concerning Germany). And no, I won't continue this diskussion here or elsewhere. If you want I cant help you finding an NG (german speeking, but I bet they will conversate in English with you. -> eMail me).
This ain't the right group for that discussion.
hard drive discs are metal, and very sturdy. They are also aligned perfectly on their shaft, and the bearings are meant to spin very quickly.
I just took turbine #3 (a hard drive) and put a round case around the discs. Huge increase in RPM.
Look for Tesla_turbine.txt and Tesla_turbineX.jpg, where X = 1 to 9.
:-) I don't know enough about you to make that judgement, but I sent the attachment to the dropbox as a ZIP, and a human had to unzip them and check them for viruses before they were made available.

But that is not, per se, a result of the education establishment. Save that the students were taught that Bismarckian social welfare is the best way to run a country. One can argue (and better economist than I do) that the 12% German unemployment rate is a result of the expense of carrying and paying for the social programs. So the students graduate with a skill set, but they are also graduated into a socio-economic classification. They've skills, just no jobs. And I seem to remember that there wasn't the concept of "go back to school and learn a new 'trade' or profession. (I may be wrong on that, it's been near thirty years since I lived there, and my German wasn't all that good in those days.)
Ahhhh... That would explain it, then... When I went looking, they must not have been uncrated and available yet.
Let's see what happens...
Aha! There they are. And the "Tesla_Turbine.txt" file is identical to the "attachment_description.txt" file I saw yesterday. Guess I was just "early" :)
The CD's held together fine with no case around the turbine and using compressor air nozzle instead of a nozzle on the turbine.
I put the case on, and got a few thousand extra RPM.
I put a cheap and quick nozzle on the turbine, and the CD's flew apart.
Lucky for me, I had the case on it, so they just bounced off the case and fell on the ground.
I'm waiting for the day the last person in Europe with a job gets sick of paying for everybody else and quits.
paying for everybody else and quits.
"Wer ist Johan Galt?"
"Qui est Jacques Galt?"
"Ein mal", "noch ein mal", "wo ist die Toilette?" and the ever popular "Grüße herrlichen, weiß Himmel, daß eins von ihm Winkel fehlt ist?"
It doesn't work in German any better than in English.
The only thing you'll get with this sentence are either rising eye browns or a grin. It doesn't make sense, I'm sorry. :-)
Did you babelfish it? Do you know that software called "babelizer" that translates some text back and forth between two languages (using babelfish) until it no longer changes. The outcome is quite funny! For your amusement click:
