Beginning of electricity

Beginning of electricity

When electricity began to be used in the USA it was direct current rather than the alternating current that is now used.

This was because a person who was regarded as the “one who knows” said DC should be used.

Currently our “one who knows” about electric cars is the Tesla guy.

So will electric cars always be running on batteries or will hydrogen fuel cells become the dominant electricity source for them in the future.

Oh, to be able to live forever. This being mortal has severe disadvantages.

  1. Life and Death in Pre-Contact Aboriginal Australia

            1. William D. Rubinstein

When Europeans first settled in Australia in 1788, they encountered an Aboriginal society of almost incredible barbarism and violence. This was the reality of what they found.

War effort

Written by

War effort

WW1 416,000 Australians took up arms. 1,000 Aboriginals. i.e. 0.2% of number possible.
WW2 1,000,000 Australians took up arms. 3,000 Aboriginals. i.e. 0.3% of number possible.
Today population is 3%.
Assume then 2%.
Numbers should have been 10,000 for WW1 and 20,000 for WW2.
If the rest of Australia had responded so poorly we would all be speaking German or Japanese.
If I was claiming Aboriginality I would not be mentioning how well we did in the two wars.
