That's existed for a long time. There are RV rental companies all over the country that will rent out your RV for you (and let you park it on their lot when you're not using it). My parents did that with the RV they bought in the '80s. The trouble was that the wear and tear was pretty bad. At the end of a couple of years, the RV was basically trashed. - Stephen Mack

RT @bcrypt: dropbox spends more on alcohol during its yearly ski trip than OpenSSL has received in donations ever
Does this speak to how little OpenSSL gets in donations, or more about how much Dropbox spends on alcohol? - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Is this a recruitment slogan for Dropbox? - Brian Johns
I was a hair's breath away from not sending this tweet.

If I made a device that burned gasoline in air at the same rate as an average car going 65mph, how big would the flame be? (cc @rjallain)
Assumptions: MPG = 32.5 - Ken Gidley
So, car burning about 2 gallons per hour. That converts to 2.103e-6 m^3/s. or 0.000002103 m^3/s. - Ken Gidley
not a huge flow of gas - Ken Gidley
Now assume we're using a bunsen burner like contraption, with a diameter of 0.01m (about .39 inches). The area of the opening of that burner would be: pi*(0.005m)^2 = 7.854e-5 m^2. - Ken Gidley
So the velocity of fuel exiting across that area would be: 0.0268 m/s - Ken Gidley
From this ( there is a formula for 'flame length' that looks like: length = const * velocity of gas * (diameter of burner + const2) * const3. (this is formula 8.4 in the paper). - Ken Gidley
Plugging in values for the constants (mostly from the same paper), I get a flame length of 1.5417e-6 m, or 6.0695e-5 inches. so 0.000060695 inches. I.e. not very big. :) - Ken Gidley
And I spent WAY too much time reading that paper to determine all this... :) - Ken Gidley
the constants are all related to the specific fuel being burned, and gasoline wasn't one of the values, so I used something similar - Acetylene. It burns a a pretty close rate to gasoline, from what I can find. - Ken Gidley
I've almost certainly gotten values wrong, since it doesn't make much sense to me. - Ken Gidley
We need to experimentally verify this. I volunteer Steve's house! - Brian Johns
