I am shocked, shocked

Recommended Posts

It seems that 5 days after it opened a test stretch someone in China stole a section of a new solar highway to provide power to cars on it.   Apparently they are planning to reverse-engineer and steal the technology to come up with a cheaper version.

Seems China is ahead of us in this technology. No solar roads here that I've ever heard of.

The article said France had such a road, maybe the Chinese got it from them? Regardless, build one over here and see how long it lats...heck, we can't even have copper pipes in houses anymore with out them being vandalized.

They say the road to hell is paved with good intentions; I wonder where the solar road leads to?

Sounds to me like it was well-intended! :unsure:

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
