The Heatwave Wood Stove Fan from Northlineexpress.com which, from what I can tell, is where hot things come from. They’ve got fireplace and heating things of all kind. More importantly though, I’m focusing on the aftorementioned Heatwave Wood Stove Fan. Here’s the reason we’re looking at it,, it’s got a Stirling engine inside!!!

teenar.jpg

It never ceases to amaze me what men (and women, of course – I’m just talking in an extremely general manner, so please don’t get overtly PC on me) can do with a little bit of imagination, some D.I.Y. skills, and a passion to create something totally new that blows our collective minds away.

Head lice, one of the scourges that affect both parents and schoolchildren, looks as though their time is almost up with the invention of the LouseBuster, a device that effectively blows most of them dead within half an hour instead of using expensive medicinal shampoos that take weeks to be effective. This device is capable of killing both the nasty bugs and their eggs by literally drying them out, offering …
