Re: Grow Hemp!

i have read that they found a Hempcrete in France that dates between 500 and 750 AD...made from hurds and lime, it actually petrifies...they are also mixing it with ground up plastic bottles and making strong , bug proof lumber that performs up to 4,000 to 6,000 psi...

Re: NOT FOR SMOKING!

no, I'm will to listen and learn...from what i have read, when Rudolph Diesel produced his engine in 1896, he'd assumed it would run off of vegetable and seed oils, especially hemp, which is superior to petroleum... there is quite a bit of revisionist history out there, so can you give me a citation?...

Re: Grow Hemp!

Rope!?! ...try, anything you can make from crude oil...the only reason it's hard to process, it do to the fact it's illegal to grow on a good part of the planet, and the technology has not been developed...read my post below...lol...rope... :=\http://www.theregister.co.uk/Design/graphics/icons/comment/boffin_32.png

NOT FOR SMOKING!

come on guys!...HEMP IS NO GOOD TO SMOKE...the Diesel engine was designed to run in oil made from hemp seed...and if it wasn't for Andrew Mellon(Mellon Bank), and the DuPont family, we would not be dependent on middle east oil today...you can make anything out of hemp seed that you can make out of crude oil...the stoner angle does not work to promote hemp...you would die from smoke inhalation, before you got high from it...and you cant grow smoke-able pot with hemp either...it ruins it...it makes it into a big stalk of seed...this plant could be crucial to reducing the CO2 level...it has another benefit as well...it's called 'Phytoremediation...they actually have it planted around Chernobyl to mitigate the radiation from the soil as well as heavy metals and other toxins... it works better than any other plant or method...http://www.theregister.co.uk/Design/graphics/icons/comment/fail_32.png

Grow Hemp!

hmmm...the more CO2 the ocean absorbs, the more acidic it becomes...not good...if the stupid US gov would legalize industrial Hemp, and 100's of thousands of acres of it were growing, and we started to make fuel out of it, it would mitigate a lot of CO2...IDK how well it grows over there in the UK, but i'm sure it will...it's just a weed that doesn't get you high...http://www.theregister.co.uk/Design/graphics/icons/comment/alert_32.png

Deep inside AMD's master plan to topple Intel

markusgarvey
Thumb Up

what's an Intel?..

If you ask me, all Intel does is blow hot air...I have been building computers for 15 years and in the real world, AMD has always worked better for me,seemed faster and more reliable...not to mention a hell of a lot cheaper...cpu+gpu is gonna be a winner...now would be a good time to buy some stock...
