Hydrogen Fuel Cell Experiments

I haven’t mentioned this but my brother and I are tinkers of a sort. We’re the type of guys who can fix about anything. Houses, cars, electronics, metal stuff, wood stuff, you name it we can fix it, put it together or back together. We fabricate metal stuff make wooden toys for our nephews and “tinker” with all sorts of stuff and ideas.

Well, maybe not exactly like this.

We have a few projects we’ve been thinking about and our shop is cluttered with tools and parts.  My brother and I are addicted to tinkering. We watch do it yourself videos on YouTube more than anything else. Building a Greenhouse or other structure, a Gassifier,  a Rocket Mass Heater and of course, today’s project, a Hydrogen Fuel Cell, is right up our alley.

The principle goes something like this. It seems technical but once you have the idea it's not so bad.

We’ve watched a lot of video and learned the concept. Now we’re trying to figure out the best setup for our cell and decide what we plan to use it for (building a small zeppelin to fly around our country area seems tempting, but may be a bad idea).

We will most likely use some form of Hydrogen cell for our car’s fuel intake to cut down the fuel consumption and provide a cleaner, more efficient fuel burn that will give us more miles per gallon or maybe to power a small generator with hydrogen gas. to do that we’ll need a cell similar to the design below.

We have a generator we will try to power off of the gas or maybe we can get a scooter we have running off of it. We’re not sure yet of the full applications and will need to build our first working cell to see what can be done. There are other benefits from hydrogen fuel cells besides the gas output.A good working cell built the right way can be used as a source of power. This will take a collection of single cells of a different type than this and is something we’ll explore later on.

I’ll try to keep you up to date on our latest projects. Definitely do your research if you intend to try something like this yourself. Hydrogen gas is highly flammable. We’ll be careful. Make sure you are too.

Things I Think About

I think about a lot of things like going green, moving off grid, recycling projects and re using my garbage instead of throwing it into some trash pile to rot for the next one thousand years or so. I think a lot about government conspiracy and how we can change things in our daily lives to be happier and healthier.

I think about things like population control and the poisons in our food, the flouride in our water and wonder why regulations have allowed it to continue and if it’s somehow related to population control. Certainly the abortion laws are geared towards curbing the population of unwanted children. Are the poisons and GMO’s in our food and flouride in our water geared to making us more manageable or to curb our numbers to more controllable levels?

The Truth about Fluoride, is that it's slow poison and is used to make the population more compliant.

I can remember in the 1980’s there seemed to be nearly no mention of cancer. Now we have numerous types of cancers along with lots of other new ailments and diagnosed diseases I don’t seem to remember from my youth. I notice too there are many new pharmaceuticals to handle these new ailments although I’m not sure I would wish to try some of them as they cause hysteria, psychotic episodes and rectal bleeding, eeww.

What makes the Drugs they're selling you any different from the ones they've outlawed? Consider the War on Drugs never stopped any drug flow. In fact drug traffic has increased in the United States since the supposed War on Drugs began.

It seems to me these days the government is more geared towards corporations making profits than the well being and good of mankind. Our government was designed with our best interest at heart. Our forefathers put into place safeguards to keep government in line with our best interests. Do you believe that they continue to work in our best interests. Do you think it’s acceptable to lose a little freedom so the government can keep us safe from terror? Well I don’t, and where is this terror I keep hearing about? Is it in the middle east, or is it here at home? Who are the terrorists that are creating all the terror? Is it them, or us?

Who are the Terrorists? Looks pretty clear from here.

When did endless wars come to be in our best interests? Who decided it would be a good idea to keep sending our young men and women to fight in other countries for the freedoms of people who don’t even want them there? Our troops should be defending our homeland, not off fighting in Iraq, Iran, Syria or any of those other places where they burn our flags and curse Americans.

There's no reason for our troops to be fighting in the desert sands of Afghanistan.

When did  the cries of our own underprivileged take a back seat to the cries of the underprivileged of the rest of the world and when did the rest of the world  become such high priority? One would think domestic issues would take precedence to the problems of the rest of the world.

With more than 18.5 million vacant homes in the United States and near 3.5 million homeless citizens we easily have the ability to solve this problem. Why don't we?

How does sending our jobs overseas and allowing foreign business on our soil  work into stabilizing our economy. How can allowing millions of undocumented illegal aliens to come to reside here and take the precious few jobs we have that our citizens need help to create jobs?

NO other country in the world allows people to waltz in without invitation or identification and take what rightfully belongs to it's citizens.

When did Made in America become Made in America by the Japanese, or the Canadians. Oh yes they are deftly stamped Made in the USA but the companies are owned by foreign interests who gain the profits from our economy and send the money out to their home countries where it is lost to our economic benefit. Makes a lot of sense doesn’t it? It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out the problem.

Can someone tell me how bailing out the fat cats and bankers (who drove us into this perpetual system of debt to begin with) and giving out more freebies and so called entitlements is going to help bring back a stable economy. We know that by now they are just printing money with nothing to back it and it’s only a matter of time before it all comes crashing down. I guess they want to be sure they are all as rich as possible when it does so they’re covered.

They won't stop until they've bled us dry.

Yea, between you and me, I fear the government more than some Arabs in Iran. Just saying, maybe I’m a little paranoid and you might think I should be wearing a tin foil hat but I’ve said it. I don’t trust that my government has my best interests in mind. Do you? Unless you have a lobbyist in Washington bartering your interests with millions of dollars in campaign contributions and monies for the politicians who can grant your desires I’d venture to say that they do not have your best interests in mind.

What do you think about the concentration camps, erm, Fema camps, that have sprung up all over the United States? What do you think of the idea to cordon off the 50 states into 10 Fema districts to be controlled by a party of governors elected by the president and his cabinet who will have no answer-ability to the people? And when these people, this new council with no answer ability comes into power, what then do you think the purpose of the Fema camps will be? To protect and keep us safe? Somehow I doubt that.

What do you think of the private military our government is building, DHS, Dept of Homeland Security (key words) To Be Used within our borders. To be used,  who do you think they plan to use them on? Certainly not the Iranians. Why do you think they need armored assault personnel carriers and billions of hollow point rounds. Why do you think they want to disarm law abiding citizens? Why is it that suddenly our system of over 200 years isn’t good enough for us to live by anymore?

Since when do we need this on our streets? Who do you think they plan to use them against?

Why do you think Google just bought up all of the prototype military robots? Who do you think owns Google, and why do you think they need military robots? It’s well known that large corporations and rich families who play key roles in politics and our countries affairs have extensive private military’s of their own. Garrisoned, trained troops and mercenary units that operate worldwide in some cases.  But why would we allow them to purchase robotic prototypes that were designed for the military. Can anyone say Terminator? Just saying.

This is only one of the many styles of military robotics programs purchased by Google.

With all the current happenings in and out of our country one must wonder what direction things are actually going in.  I would wager to hell in a hand basket as a good comparison (but that’s just me). It looks to me like Big Corp is staging a coup. They’ve successfully purchased the governments and the economies of strategic countries and own most of the world’s military forces.

They program the media which is being used to brainwash society into believing everything is as it should be, sort of a “Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain” scenario is being propagated as the best course of action. While your attentions are on Miley, Beiber and the Duck Dynasty stars the essence of the life you live is being ripped away moment by moment by an unseen force many choose not to recognize but anyone with common sense can see.

They want us blind to what's happening behind the scenes.

We live in an age of technology where common sense can no longer rightly be called common. You can bring the world to your fingertips but cannot see past the nose on your face. Change has Come to America, bringing with it many things that should not be.

Change isn't always for the best.
