Mexican Living: The Unexplained

The inexplicable bothers me. It always has. You know, the "Unsolved Mysteries" that plague mankind. I know I must have some brain damage from all the headache-inducing mysteries I have tried to figure out in my lifetime.

Mexico isn't any different from America in that regard. There are all sorts of mysteries here that vex me to no end. I want answers and none are forthcoming. I need closure and everything remains open. Some of these Mexican mysteries are mindboggling and that is the topic for today's column.

1. Why is it that when you are hunting for the scorpion you saw ten minutes ago, now that you are armed with something to kill it, it is nowhere in sight? But, when you have settled down and gotten over the fright, it reappears.

2. What does a fly do all through the "no-fly season" to get so big and fat? Where does it go? What does it eat to get so big?

3. Where are Mexicans going in such a hurry all the time? It is a culturally documented fact that "time" does not mean the same thing to Mexicans as it does to anal-retentive Americans and that they NEVER get to an appointment on time EVER! So why are they driving at breakneck speeds and why do bus drivers honk their horns furiously when stuck in traffic?

4. What exactly does "time" mean to a Mexican?

5. Why is it that a waiter will tell you a dish is NOT hot and spicy but when you eat it, you feel like running through the restaurant screaming bloody murder and looking for a cow to suckle?

6. Why does the little tubby indigenous man in the park keep asking us if we want to buy his indigenous tree bark art? He has seen and asked us 5,000 times and each time we've told him no; but he still asks us.

7. Where is the invisible marching band that always starts at the same time every night but no one ever sees it? Why does it always play the same tune, each night, and play it badly?

8. Why do our Mexican parrots hang upside down after they have a meal?

9. Why is it that no one in this entire country knows the exact species of our Mexican parrots?

10. Why is it that mail going out of Mexico seems to get to where it is addressed fairly well but mail coming into Mexico rarely gets here?

11. Why is it when Mexican parents pick their kids up from school, the parents take the kid's backpack and carry it instead of making the kids do it?

12. Why do Mexicans believe they must own a car when public transportation makes it unnecessary?

13. Why can Mexicans eat food sold from street vendors and never get sick? When an American tries that, he can count on hugging the toilet all night long.

14. Why at paying public toilets do they give you such a little bit of toilet paper? (I mean, really! Come on!)

15. When Americans move to Mexico, why do they have this seemingly genetic imperative to gather into gated communities and call them names like, "Gringo Gulch?" (Why do they bother coming here at all?)

16. Why does there have to be a "rainy season?" Why can't we have what little rain we get spread over the entire year to make it more tolerable?

17. With regard to the Minuteman Project in Arizona, a.k.a. the Mexican hunters, whatever happened to this:

"...Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me. I lift my lamp beside the golden door." (Emma Lazarus penned these words in her 19th century poem, The New Colossus.)

In The News:

Tracking the progress of the third party testing we at PES are coordinating along with U-Plug Products LLC, of their 2 kW U-Plug magnet motor that is a 24"x6" portable cylinder weighing 20 pounds, expected to cost 2,000 USD. We want to run it three times longer (21 hours) than what the best batteries available could provide. (PESWiki; February-April 2016)
Pre-launch video announces a new LENR website coming March 1, 2016 at http://LookingForHeat.com The video is very well done as an entertaining piece that hopefully will go viral. (Free Energy Blog; February 21, 2016)
It's not easy to find a qualified testing agency that is also willing to sign off on something that appears to defy our existing understanding of the laws of physics. U-Plug has agreed to allow for a group of us scientists, including at least 3 PhDs to go test their unit and publish our report. (PESN; February 20, 2016)
So that this is quite clear, this is a test on a Regular Torch. NOT the ELFE flashlight. This is to compare them. 2 x NiMH AA 1.2v Battery's in a Regular Torch with a Halogen Bulb. Load is 2.8v and 0.85amps. (PESN; February 17, 2016)
Video explains the scientific principles behind how the ELFE flashlight harnesses endless free energy from the environment (Earth's magnetic field), which works better in some regions than others. It also shows the insides the torch. Uses the word "antennae," as one of the components. (PESN; February 14, 2016)
"The OPhone contains a capacitor that directly powers our phone. During extensive use this capacitor may become discharged, however this capacitor is being constantly trickle charged by Orbo. So after a period of time the capacitor will be recharged and the phone will be functional again. In essence the phone is charging itself." (Free Energy Blog; February 13, 2016)
The company that has figured out how to harness the earth's magnetic field to produce usable power and has been selling the ELFE flashlight (two more customer reports), is now developing a 3 kW generator. In two weeks, they are holding a business meeting for international distributors. (PESN; February 12, 2016)
Illinois company is gearing up to manufacture a 2 kW (115 volts, 17.3 amps) magnet motor that is load-following, portable, 24"x6" tube, weighing 20 pounds, very quiet, with 3-year warranty but expected to last at least 20 years with zero maintenance. Third-party tested. MSRP 2000 USD, beginning March, 2016, through distributors. (PESWiki; February 11, 2016)
The government agent who worked on this technology five decades ago, that is similar to Professor Steven E. Jones' Joule Ringer, thinks it is conceivable that we could eventually scale this solid state technology up to have a device the size and price of an air conditioner providing 20 kw. (PESWiki; February 9, 2016)
Nagendra Singh in Mumbai, India, informs us that they have built five of these and have two running for customers presently, in the 40 kVA range. "Presently it is too [expensive], costing 3200 USD per kva below 30 kva." (PESWiki; February 8, 2016)
The SunCell is described as a solid state "Sun in a Box." A 200 kW module would weigh around 250 pounds, with energy production cost being around 1 cent/kwh, so return on investment could be ten days. They are expected to be available commercially by Q1, 2017. (PESN; January 6, 2015)
"Today I received my Elfe Flashlight and it works. Time will tell if it meets the claims of automatically recharging, when depleted. If it holds, the claims a real breakthrough in FE technologie would have been accomplished." -- German customer (PESWiki; February 6, 2016)
The phone battery indicator stays near full even with heavy usage throughout the day. (The battery is charged by the internal OCube that pulls energy from the wheelwork of nature, solid state). (PESWiki; February 5, 2016)
The capacity of the Proton-3ND (Proton -3 Nano Diffusion) battery is projected to be 44 times the capacity of lithium batteries. Electric vehicles with these batteries would have more power and much more mileage at no extra charge. (PESN; January 4, 2016)
HH2 water fuel cell creates pure hydrogen off a 9-volt battery. This was a big diesel HH2 cell that was tested on a 16-liter Cat engine for CARB testing; yet it ran on very low amps and a low 9 volts. (PESWiki; February 3, 2016)
A former U.S. Government worker describes his effort to bring to public awareness (by highlighting things presently in the public domain) energy and anti-gravity technologies that the government had operational 50 years ago but has kept from the public. (PESN; February 2, 2016)
Imagine an incandescent bulb that is actually more efficient than LEDs! Well, it actually exists (MIT) and it does so by recycling light. (Free Energy Blog; February 2, 2016)
SMBC-Comics.com has posted a fun spoof on our skeptics. (Free Energy Blog; February 1, 2016)
"OK, so a lot of people are asking what's the difference between an Orbo power cell and traditional batteries." Batteries store energy, Orbo generates energy, then trickle charges a lithium ion battery.] (Free Energy Blog; February 1, 2016)
Mr. Keshe is as misleading in the field of free energy as he is regarding me. That has been my experience the years I've been exposedto his work. He takes something and blows it so far out of proportion that it barely resembles the fact from which it was extrapolated into infinity. He demands: "Close PESWiki now." (PESWiki; January 31, 2016)
They have achieved solid state operation using an electromagnetic pump to spray the molten silver between the electrodes for the 1000/second continuous pulsing for continuous power production. (Free Energy Blog; January 29, 2016)
