Hmmm that's neat. Would that be photoreactive scales?

Definitely. Combustion engines and electric motors is pretty much accepted in my circle, except the people that don't know.

I always thought of an efficient way to harness the lost heat of an internal combustion engine. Heat is energy, which is wasted trying to cool the engine, water pump, weight of engine size vs air cooled, etc. Ohio state university beat me to a few years ago.

Anyone here besides me ever heard a NOVI engine at full throttle?

That is a question I posted in the "Random Questions" thread a long time ago. I didn't know the difference and was told engine is combustion and motor is electric.

I don't know if the scales are photoreactive or not. All the fish get more dull at night when they're sleeping/slower/in the dark. It just so happened last night I looked in the tank with the lights off and just the very dim light of another room making the fish barely visible and for a brief moment I thought, "What the heck are those white fish?" Then I realized it was my Zebras with their stripes off. I think Vikingdad is right, except I didn't think "naked", I thought "pajamas".

I think the cops in the Los Angeles area are a little nervous with the cop killer still on the loose.

They shot up a Toyota truck that was similar to the suspects vehicle. Inside were two women delivering newspapers. Both women were hit by the gunfire.
