Fastest Honda in the World. Difference bt. i4, V6, W-Engine, Boxers & Rotary.

 

 

In 2018, the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ achieved the top speed ever recorded at Nürburgring. But a year prior, something unexpected happened. The world saw a record it never saw before. The title of the world’s fastest front-wheel-drive production car was claimed by the Honda Civic Type R. It achieved a record Nürburgring lap time of 7 minutes 43.8 seconds, a record better than Aston Martin V8 Vantage and Bugatti EB 110 SS.

Its engine? A Honda K-series engine, arguably one of the best engines ever made. The K-series s is legendary because, for its small size, it has high revving characteristics and massive power output. The most amazing thing is: it’s just a 4-cylinder inline engine!

So many Internal combustion engines, what’s the difference? To understand engines, let’s look at engine layouts and number of cylinders. Today’s we’ll look at some of the most common ones, including Inline engines, V-engines, W-engines, flat engines, boxers, and rotaries. Let’s just dive right in.

Universe Size Comparison

An average unaided human eye can see 2,500 stars on a clear night. Sometimes a particular light in the sky catches your curiosity. What is it? How can you tell if a light is a planet, star, comet, meteor, or satellite? Here’s a quick chart to identify the unidentified objects in the sky.

How Effective Is Your Mask?

Wearing a face mask or face shield is better than no mask at all. How effective is your mask?

Not all masks are created equal. Some people use scarves or bandanas. Others add changeable filters, like coffee filters. Which mask is best? Here are stats on how effective different masks are. This is what they didn’t tell you.

N95 = 95% filtration rate
Surgical mask = 60-80%
Quilting fabric (2 layers, high thread count) = 70-95%
Vacuum bag = 60-87% filtration but shouldn’t be used since some constrain fiberglass
Furnace filter (2 layers) = 75%
Pillow case (4 layers) = 60%
Pillow case (2 layers) = 22%
Coffee filter (3 layers) = 40-50%
Bandana (2 layers) = 18%

How to TIE A TIE – Easiest Method in 4 Steps (Mirrored)

 

But then one day you have a job interview or a special date, or maybe you need to attend a wedding or funeral.  And it dawns on you:  How do you tie a necktie?

There are many ways to tie a tie.  But let’s focus on the most popular & simplest way – so you can get out the door in a jiffy.

This method is called the Four in Hand knot.

First lift up your shirt collar.  Drape the necktie around your collar, with the wide end of the tie on your right, and the narrow end on your left.

The tip of the narrow end should rest slightly above your belly-button.  The wide end should hang slightly lower than the narrow end.  The rest of the steps you’ll be moving only the wide end, while the narrow end stays stationary until the last step.

Ok cross the wide end over and under the narrow one.  
Cross the wide end over the front, one more time.

Then hook the wide end underneath and through the open neck loop.

Lastly, slip the wide end down into the front knot.

Now tighten the tie, by holding the knot with one hand, and pulling down the narrow end with your other hand.

Make sure it’s not too loose – but dont choke yourself either.

There you go! 

The Four in Hand knot is one of the most popular knots because it’s so easy and versatile.  If you only have time to learn one knot, this is the one.

What’s a SECOND COUSIN ONCE REMOVED? Cousins Explained

So you’re at a family event.  You meet your grandfather’s brother’s son’s son .  What do you call him, in relation to you?  You navigate the family relationships in your mind.  What a maze.

Your grandfather’s brother is your granduncle.  His son is your First Cousin Once Removed.  And his son is your Second Cousin.  What does “once removed” mean?  What’s the difference between first cousin and second cousin?  Who even created this system anyway?

Ok back to your family event.  You don’t have a cousin chart in your back pocket – But don’t worry.  You can still calculate cousin-hood the fast way.  Here’s how:

Most people know who their first cousin is.  It’s the child of your aunt or uncle.  But not many people know what a second or third cousin is.  To understand, think of the generic word “cousin” as a someone who shares a common grandparent.

That’s why he’s your second cousin. Continue reading

How to PARALLEL PARK – 45 Degree Method.

STEP 1:  GET IN POSITION.

First, pull up next to the car in front of your intended parking spot.
Your car should be about 3 feet (1 meter) from that car.
Continue pulling up until you can see the other car’s rear in the middle of your back passenger window.

STEP 2:  BACK IN TILL YOU REACH A 45 DEGREE ANGLE.

Start reversing your car slowly, while turning your steering wheel completely to the right.

Look at your passenger side mirror. As you’re reversing, you’ll see a triangle forming from the side of your car and the curb.

When the triangle becomes an equilateral triangle (meaning that all 3 sides are the same length), stop reversing.  Or if you hear a sudden boom, definitely stop reversing.

Okay.  When you see the equilateral triangle, it means the side of your car and the curb are at a 45 degree angle.

How to PARALLEL PARK – 3 Easy REFERENCE POINTS

How to PARALLEL PARK – 3 Easy REFERENCE POINTS First, turn on your right blinker.

Pull up next to the car in front, until both rear bumpers are aligned.
As an easy rule of thumb, you can line up your right side mirror with their left side mirror. Both cars should be about 3 feet apart (or a bit less than 1 meter). Many cars have a small triangular window on the back side door. We’ll use the triangle window that’s on your right side.
POINT 1 – BACK END APPEARS IN THE TRIANGLE Back up in a straight line, until the BACK END of the neighboring car appears in the triangle window on your right. Then turn your wheel to the RIGHT, and you’ll start backing into your spot.

Earth Without Water

What would earth look like if water were to dry up and disappear?  Imagine how this would impact not only our oceans, rivers, lakes, and streams – but even the atmosphere and clouds.  All flora and fauna would dry out, die, and turn into sand and dust.  We tried to simulate what this might look like.  To do this, we used NASA satellite map of earth with topological data.  We also simulated the colors we might expect if all vegetation and creatures were to die and also if all glaciers were to disappear.  Due to limited data available, the displacement scale may be somewhat exaggerated for illustrative purposes, but the topology is relatively scaled.
