A guy who selled osmosis water filters came to my house and made a demostration about how many particles per million were in our tap water. He used a tool and it literally went off the fucking chart, and it measured up to 999 if I recall correctly (or 9999).

The tap water in my town is probably the worst in my region, which also has the worst tap water in my country. It's so fucking dirty, you can see how the shower curtains turn to brown the more you use it from all the shit it has. And still, some people will drink tap water here. It just baffles me how are they still breathing.

I believe every tap water has to fulfill regulations. If you do not live in some truly shithole country, then tap water should not be dangerous to drink. Taste is different matter thou.

This brown thingy is rust (oxids of iron), it is not dangerous at all.
User avatar
#140 - arandomanon (07/06/2016) [-]
I was just exagerating, I know drinking it won't kill you (I've done it) but it's far from ideal to drink. I'm not sure if they are oxids of iron or it's mud, since oxids of iron tend to be red-ish and not plain crap-like brown. And of course the taste is horrible, basically chloride and fluoride.
#149 - anon (07/06/2016) [-]
You might wanna read up on Oxidation. There are red Iron oxides as well as brown.

I didn't say there aren't brown, I simply said "I'm not sure since oxids tend to be red-ish, I know it's not always true but I haven't seen a crappy-brown mud-like oxide. I'm not a scientist but I'm a history student and I have to know how to recognize iron materials in tools or paints and I've never seen an iron oxide that resembles that color.

No, what you are doing is dismissing the least dangerous possibility because of your limited knowledge on the subject.

Okay anon, you sure know my intention better than I do. And I'm sure you are the big science boss who knows it all.

Arandomanon is arguing with a random anon.
Anyway, you are being a cunt, wich is fitting, since you are calling me a dick for pointing out that you might not be epically proficient at finding out what IONS ARE IN A SOLUTION BY LOOKING AT IT.
Tap water is something you constantly touch. If it leaves marks on stuff, other than Calcium Carbonate and shit, you need to find out, find the guy who is responsible for poisoning your family and then fist his urethra.

I'm being a cunt? You're the one saying I'm being an idiot talking of something I don't know and denying the wisdom that you bring, which is not true. I've only stated something: "I don't think it's iron oxide because I've never seen that muddy color" which doesn't mean I'm saying it is NOT, I'm simply expressing my doubts. As I fucking said, I haven't done analysis so I can't tell for sure.

And I've already said that it's not mortal to drink because I've drank it, the only thing I'm complaining about is the quality is far from optimal. That's it. That's why I said "I don't care, I don't drink it". It's obviously not mortal to drink it, but that doesn't make it a good water to drink.

I think we are done here.

Fuck if I know, probably the water-treatment plant that supplies most the south part of the island from water. It used to come from underground galleries which have the best quality water here, but the townhall decided to swap to a different source with a lower quality because it was cheaper.
#144 - jasir (07/06/2016) [-]
No way of persuading the townhall to switching it back? Many people must be pissed.
User avatar
#145 - arandomanon (07/06/2016) [-]
Heh. No. My mother told me that a lot of people protested, other people didn't even notice because they are just retards. That swap was a long time ago, probably I wasn't even born yet.

My townhall has a wide history of doing whatever they want without consequences, for example they had some sort of fight with the public transport company and they decided to stop hosting a bus line that made traveling from my town to one of the important cities in the north in about... 20 minutes? The alternative is using a much slower line that will probably take about an hour and a half. My mother even raised a petition and even gathered a lot of signatures from people, but our townhall just ignored it.

They are pricks and people still will vote for the same assholes who caused this and (a lot more) other problems.

Particles per million of what exactly, hydrogen dioxide? Plus it might not be the best to trust a man trying to sell you a product. However I do recommend filters over bottled water unless you consciously decide you're paying for the plastic, not better quality water. Some bottled waters are of worse qualities than tap, granted the tap water is suitable for drinking as some places do not have that leisure.

#127 - arandomanon (07/06/2016) [-]
Of solid residue (mud, chlorine, fluorine, etc.). I know you shouldn't trust a man trying to sell a product, but the water here sucks for real (I've known of other households visited by the same company stating different results in different towns, still pretty bad though). The taste is awful and since we've got the filter, it tastes much better. My mother also feels it, she couldn't drink tap water before without getting sick and now she drinks it normally. Bottled water here is a must if you don't have a good filter.

This is a misconception I've seen several times. Straight cut gears are NOT stronger than helical gears. Helical gears (along with Herringbone, spiral, etc.) distribute the load across multiple teeth, which decreases both stress and wear when compared to an equally sized straight cut gear. With the advantage of being quieter due to their more gradual engagement, they are preferred for street use despite their extra cost and complexity.

A great historical example of straight cut gears' weakness was the transmissions of Nazi Germany's Panther and Tiger tanks. They used straight cut gears and were so ill suited to the job they were know to failed 30 to 40 percent of the time. On the other hand, US tanks were using helical gears which offered nearly twice the torque rating per pound. Tank enthusiasts often wonder why Germany didn't use helical gears in such a high torque application.

However, helical gears do have their disadvantages. All gears with angled teeth (with the exception of Herringbone) create thrust (acting parallel to the gear shaft) forces that get transferred to the transmission housing under load. The problem with using them in motorsports then is that they require a heavier transmission housing which negates their extra strength while also being more difficult to design for and more expensive to produce. Thus their only advantage is noise, which nobody in motorsports gives two shits about.

Helical gears are stronger than straight cut gears, but in motorsports it's cheaper, easier, and lighter to use an extra beefy set of straight cut gears. The loss in reliability usually doesn't matter either, since the dog teeth usually require the transmission be rebuilt like every 20 thousand miles anyway.
#55 - anon (06/08/2016) [-]
It should be noted that in motorsport the type of gear used is not for strength and weight considerations.

The main advantage of straight cut gears is for shifting, there is no need for a clutch as such as you can 'bang' through the gears. Ideally rev matching along the way (flat shifting), be manually with you foot on the accelerator pedal, or a shift sensor that cuts power.

Motorbikes are a great example of this
#57 - xxnegociatorxx (06/08/2016) [-]
This is another popular misconception.

Any transmission made in the last 70 years is going to be constant mesh: your gears never disengage from one another. One gear in each pair is fixed to it's shaft and the other is free to rotate. However, the free gear has a set of teeth on the side of the gear which can be engaged by a sort-of-gear (purple in the picture) that is fixed to rotate with the shaft.A set of selector forks is used to control engagement of each gear set.

The difference between a manual you'd find in your daily driver and the type you'd find in a motorcycle or rally car is how the gears are engaged. A normal car has very fine teeth that fit snugly to reduce backlash (google it) and spread the load. This fine engagement means the free gear and the purple gear need to be brought very close together in speed to prevent grinding the gear change. This is why all such transmissions have cone shaped, clutches called "synchronizers" between the free gear and the purple gear that slow the relative speed between the gears before their teeth engage. This type of transmission is called a "synchro-mesh" because it is constant mesh with synchronizers.

A racing transmission or motorcycle transmission has fat, wide teeth with lots of extra room in between them motorcycle trans with prominent dog teeth: i.ytimg.com/vi/xT-CmXCFlQw/maxresdefault.jpg . This results in more backlash and a harsher engagement that is prone to fatigue when shifted hard. It also means the teeth sometime land on top of each other, thus preventing a gear change. This doesn't happen when you're moving, but I've seen soooo many people think there was something wrong with their bike because they couldn't shift more than 4 gears while stopped at a red light. They just have literally no idea how the machine they're riding works, but w/e. However, it means you don't need synchronizers and can shift very quickly with or without the clutch. These are called dog tooth transmissions or dog boxes, but dog box is something of a misnomer since it originally referred to non-constant mesh transmission which absolutely couldn't be shifted without double clutching.

Neither type must use straight or helical cut gears because the type of gear is totally irrelevant to how the transmission shifts here's a picture of a dog tooth transmission that uses both straight and helical gears: supercar-engineering.com/images/dogbox/prod-DogBox2.jpg , except in some dog tooth transmissions where one of the gears can slide along the shaft (while maintaining mesh) and directly engage the side of one of the two gears next to it. In that way weight is saved by combining a gear and its selectors together into one componet. I've only heard of that being used in motorcycles, though, and since they deal with such low torques (the dog teeth, especially for 2nd gear, are pretty much the only thing that wear in them) and have little reason to minimize noise, they would use straight cut teeth regardless.

Actually straight cut gears have the advantage in high horsepower applications because they don't tranfer out that power, i'll be replacing my gear set out when i start building out my car for that reason, factory gear set can only hold out to about 250% the factory torque

#36 - reaperriley (06/08/2016) [-]
but why the angled teeth? if the straight cut is strong why dont normal cars have them as well?
#62 - anon (06/08/2016) [-]
In normal cars with manual transmission the gears are helical for noise reduction and smoother ride, but they do use a spur gear for the reverse, because there has to be an idler gear, to change the direction or the torque. That's where that shitty noise comes from, when you're backing up your car a bit faster.
