  8. I saw an article where they are removing steel from sunken Battleships in the South Pacific . I always thought the salt and a Marine growth would make the steel worthless . The biggest insult is that I always thought this was untouchable as it was war related . I had an Uncle go down on a Corvette in WW2 and I would not want someone touching his ship . http://news.nationalpost.com/news/world/sunken-second-world-war-battleship-and-grave-to-more-than-300-sailors-has-been-illegally-salvaged
  9. JV Puleo I heard that all the radiation from the 1950's tests fell all over the place and in the iron ore mines . Know they can tell by the amount of radiation in the steel when it was made for example 1950's , less in the 1970's . I did know about the steel under the water protecting it from radiation .

  18. I know in Canada in the 1970's they were using Japanese steel to make steel rebar for construction . I was told then that they had to use more steel rebar to get the same results in the poured concrete slab as it was not as good quality as the domestic steel . Tensile strength ? ? What I do not understand is why were they were importing the steel when in the article below all this was going on ? Yet, the steel industry’s rejuvenation was not a straightforward story of success. The reality of the US steel industry’s reinvention was that employment and production were slashed dramatically. In total, nearly 300,000 steelworkers lost their jobs between 1976 and 1986. In places like Youngstown, and Gary, Indiana, whole communities were left devastated by plant closures. As such, while the US steel industry did survive the crises of the 1970s and 1980s it did not do so unscathed.
  19. Up here in Canada they are toying with the idea to shoot a sticky GPS dart from the grill of a Police car . On to the back of the Felon speeding car . Then call off the high speed chase and follow the Dart with GPS so another Police car can follow it . Then I assume arrest the felon ? ? http://www.citynews.ca/2017/05/19/opp-to-fire-gps-darts-at-fleeing-vehicles-to-avoid-high-speed-chases/

  24. I guess this is why Phil Edmonton Lemon Aid Car books took off . In 1968 he founded the Automobile Protection Association (APA), which uncovered and disseminated information about automobile defects and successfully pressured the auto industry for several recalls. Edmonston was president of the APA until 1987. In that role, he worked on thousands of consumer claims against automobile manufacturers and won million-dollar settlements and hundreds of lawsuits for consumers.[2] His work with the association led to the Lemon-Aid series of car manuals, issued annually since the 1970s. Edmonston has served as a pro bono witness on automobile defects and safety before numerous courts and government committees. In 1982, he testified on inadequate automobile quality and rust protection before the United States Senate Subcommittee on Technology and successfully pressured Ford to become the first automaker to provide a corrosion compensation warranty. He is the author of over 100 best-selling books on consumer rights and the automobile industry.[2]
