Spotted this bundle of cute somewhere on Teh Interwebz.

And in case some reader is still utterly clueless about the AC/DC T-shirt on previous page, the two faces are those of Nikola Tesla and Thomas Alva Edison. Tesla was a proponent of AC (Alternating Current) for transmitting electricity, while Edison wanted to use DC (Direct Currrent). Tesla won, because AC was largely cheaper to deal with.

Cute and sweet, but not saccharine. :wink:

Too much of too many artificial sweeteners already out there, for fanen! But, yeah, this pic won’t set off a Nagamon event.

(Nagamon = Nagato the kanmusu when confronted by an excess of cute.)

DC is often much preferred "on location", where you're actually using it, buuut, to get it there over a distribution net, DC in many ways sucks.

And a very nice pic BTW.

Incidentally, the Japanese use high-voltage DC to bridge the 50/60 Hz divide.

It's also used in some major underwater lines to minimize the number of cables needed to be laid down and remain functional and for safety.

The main problem with high-voltage DC - at least at the time Tesla and Edison were battling it out - is that transformers didn't exist for DC. So you could send it efficiently (high voltage) but then it was hard to get it down to low voltage for family use. And while I know a lot about 18th and 19th century electricity, my knowledge starts going downhill past about 1960.

I’m not so hot re knowledge on HVDC either, but the Wiki-articles look OK to me.

Anyway, here is something I snagged off FB a while ago:

This is about as sailormoonish as I recall Minato Monthly even being.

Front page image from December 2002 — and, yes, it definitely looks like a nine-foot-wide, giant pink heart on top of that tree.

Yeah, i found out that it was a whole little science all by itself when i got dragged into a discussion about it on some forum 5-10 years ago.

A whole host of little good's and bad's and even a bunch of exceptions to the general rules about how you could set up powergrids and distribution networks.

Mamoru getting the bad part of the deal there... Reminds me of this picture:

http://www.angelfire.com/anime5/fanficl ... Take_2.jpg

For those curious - that's from Black Dragon's Guardian (a Ranma fic): http://www.angelfire.com/anime5/fanficlair/library.html

On that same page you'll also find Millennium, which is a Guardian /Sailor Moon crossover
