I remember only the vaguest details, mainly emotions. So my diary would be weird. I also get distracted by technical details so My dream diaries would be doodles of various things and notes about them.

Last night I honestly attempted to design a pump using materials that I knew I had and methods I could use, While avoiding pre-made parts.
Interestingly You can make a literal hand pump. Put your hands together so that your arms are at 90degrees (1/2pi radians) and clamp together firmly. Then keeping your fingers clamped move your palms away from each other and back again, you should hear a sucking sound and feel air coming out when you push together.
To make it a proper pump you need one-way valves.

The sticking point is the valves.

Is it bad that I immediately thought Gabe Newell when I saw the word valve?

Ball valves are easier to make than a screw pump.
take a length of pipe (I'll use 1cm diameter for the example), cut a piece about 3cm long from it.
Cut a 40mm circle in the middle of two 1cm square metal sheets, and in one cut several small holes around this but leaving the central ring formed from the first cut and enough support to make it strong.
Put a 50mm ball bearing inside the 3cm piece and then solder/weld the one with one hole to one end(call it A) and the one with many holes to the other end(call it B)

when the fluid goes from A to B the ball bearing will move and lodge in the central hole of B but the fluid will go though the other holes. When fluid goes from B to A the ball bearing will move and lodge in the hole of A and block all water going though it.

The sticking point is that I don't have any sheets of metal or any pipe lengths to fabricate it from, and that's the challenge. It's mcgyver style, not 'if i had...' style.


And Ham701, yes, yes it is.

So you literally draft technical plans in your sleep.

That's... far more ridiculous than most of my dream-woven epics.

I make nuclear power plants in my sleep.
But instead of using radioactive uranium to make the water hot, I use radios.
Each radio is tuned to a disco station, which make the water molecules very angry and they start punching each other.
That makes the water boil.

He did it the same way you can change the title on links but instead of writing "photo" "my video" or something like that. he wrote the link to a forum topic but the topic wasnt the "real" link but only the title of the link


Like so:
[ Derp url=http://trololololololololololo.com]http://www.brikwars.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=8858[Derp /url
of course without the Derp

I've been around the forums several times, I know that much, but the link is to Shadowscythe's "crazy ass dreams" thread that actually is relevant. I just don't see why he would link the Trololololol vid to something that makes sense in the discussion.

It looks legit so people will actually click it. I've done this before too, I think the other time I was trying to troll silva or a new member, I can't remember.

All I can say is this thread is officially derailed.

Fun fact; The picture and video are linked! After the accident pictured, The entire K-class (from the picture) was rebuilt into the U-class (from the video!) because the accident was caused due to instabilities at high speed.
