This shits just ridiculous. Probably the worst torture in the history of torture.
SAND FLOOR ROOM
So basically it’s a torture device, where a person is put into a room with slow moving sand-paper at the bottom. There is no way out.
The person has to walk forward to keep from getting send to the corner and scraped.
Eventually after days of walking, the person will get tired and won’t be able to anymore.
What happens next, is pretty gruesome and self-explanatory.

Inspired by the water and brush calligraphy of older artists in his local Beijing parks, Hanna converted a Beijing tricycle, called a san lun che, to digitally “paint” (or more accurately drip) Chinese characters onto the sidewalk. The characters write out Dongcheng District Propaganda phrases that are on banners and housing developments in the district.
Create a good environment for minors to grow up healthy
Civilization comes from every individual, to contribute from every little thing
Be a civilized citizen and build a civilized new atmosphere for constructing s cultured and civilized city
Build a civilized city for everyone to share a beautiful home altogether
Be civilized and polite Beijingers, to build a harmonious charm new Dong Cheng district together
Virtue shows through long term persistence, civilization reflects by actions
Harmonious Dong Cheng District constructed by you and me
Constructs the national civilized district, to be the civilized citizen of Dong Cheng District
The project was first shown at Beijing Design Week in 2011. Hanna now lives in Los Angeles where he works as an artist and designer.
Thorium. Entertaining and informative. the thing I like about thorium is that you could pick a piece of thorium rich rock off the ground, it’s so common and safe, and put it in your spaceship and power it for a hundreds years or something, yet it’s still nuclear.

THE TESLA MOTOR
One of the most significant inventions of modern times
Nikola Tesla (1856-1943) – Croatian-born American physicist and electrical engineer – patented in 1887-1888 what has become the most widely used type of electric motor, the induction motor.
The induction motor is simple to make because it has no electrical contacts to the rotor. Instead it uses a rotating magnetic field produced by two or more alternating currents in the stationary outer windings (the stator). The induction motor was a major factor in the adoption of alternating current (ac) electricity supplies.
 Tesla made this working model motor to illustrate the claims in his patents. It is a two-phase machine (that is, it uses two alternating currents to produce the rotating magnetic field that makes the rotor turn). Image Credit: Science Museum/Science & Society Picture Library (Science Museum)
 These animations show how an induction motor works. The three magnets surrounding the armature (in the center) make this a three-phase machine. [Left] Alternating 3-phase sine wave current in each of the coils produces a varying magnetic field on the axis. [Right] The magnetic field vectors of the stator coils [on the outside] produce a single rotating vector.
 Drawings of the motor included in Tesla’s patent of 1888.
