Salt just lowers the melting point of water..... It doesn't make the ice colder. In the case of moving air, you're going to want as much cold surface as possible which lots of small chunks of multisided ice pieces. a liquid slurry probably wont provide any more surface area to cool the air.

I am listening Glenn…I too will speak for those who won’t… I know that for the non believers this world is as good as it gets however for the believer this world is as bad as it gets…I figure I ve got nothing to lose because in the end I know who wins the final battle…for one day every knee shall bow and confess that Jesus is Lord to the Glory of Gad the Father!!!!
You are not alone…He is listening…He is speaking!

curious… those who stand for nothing hound those who stand for something!
atheists don't stand for nothing, we simply don't believe in ancient myths or supernatural beings. there's a big difference.
You still haven't said what you *do* stand for, just what you don't believe...
You're logical, right?
Just for grins, if you haven't already, read The Fundamental Wisdom of the Middle Way: Nagarjuna's Mulamadhyamakakarika
It changed how I look at... everything.
Phillya...They're not exactly "ancient". More like "eternal".
And not so much "supernatural". Kind of a bigger life. But not outside of us.

watching the IRS hearing, praying some one will do the math…Miller: the IRS is overrun with 70,000 applications for tax exempt status…70,000 apps, over 1 year, distributed to 140 employees is…1.9 apps per employee per day. To much to handle? Really?
WOW! you are joking right? lets try this again! together! 70,000/140=500 so its 500 a year per employee... not 1.9... good lord!
and I just saw per day.... I fell like an A** my bad!
But, his final number was apps per DAY, not per year. 500/365=1.369, so less than 1.9. Besides, 500 a year still isn't that much. I handle that many computer repairs in about 6 months at my school district job, with a userbase of 12,000 staff and students. That much work really isn't that hard.
Try it again with a real calculator and a daily figure: 70000/140=500 a year. 500 divided by about 260 working days (500/260) = 1.9
Keats are you really that damned ignorant??? Better re-check your long division and re-read the material...
Silas... come on! I apologized. I thought he was way off saying 1.9 per year for whatever reason.. re read it. it does come out to 1.9 a day
There is not 365 work days in a year. Especially a Gov job.
5 days a week for about 52 weeks = 260 day. Not including vacation and sick leave.
Monk...you forget coffee breaks, strategy sessions and trips to Hawaii to pretend like they are working. You also forget Government employees scan the Internet for porn hours at a time. 1.9 applications a day is too much! How did they get their work done! They all need bonuses so they work to get that number up to 2 a day!
Don't forget all of those Christian Holidays they take, then deride Christians for having them, so the actual number is some where closer to 2.5, and don't forget those sick days, as I am sure not many gov't employees make the whole year with any sick leave left over...makes me want a gov't job, so I can lean on the shovel and watch the everyone else work...well, not everyone, just those people that have jobs...which is about 25% of the population these days...
@KEATONC333 The term "my bad" doesn't constitute an apology. It's an attempt to duck responsibility without fully admitting guilt. If you're sorry, say "I'm sorry" and own the mistake "I failed to read your entire comment in my feeble attempt to find fault with your logic because I'm so bent on our political differences that I see anything you say and any idea you have as wrong and will go out of my way to prove it. Even if it constitutes me making an ass out of myself publicly."
It's called accountability. You should try it. The truth will set you free.
Keaton you're a special kind of stupid aren't you? It's okay, most liberals hear and see what they want to see...
@FARRAHHAIR Yes! I agree with the democraps! Please recalculate your figures! The IRS currently has a staff of 93,000 at their disposal. That's less than one application per year per employee. No wonder they're so overworked!
Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahah! The insanity!
DHS fascist pigs
Lil Keatie you remove all doubt daily. At some point you have to ask yourselves many, many questions. Is it just you? Take the sage's advice and learn to shut up once in a while; you remove all doubt daily, by the post. It's a little more acceptable on the daily kos. Expected even.
Will you guys stop quibbling. The I R S is all Freaked up. That's for sure !! Just listen to the lies.
as far as your calculations are concerned. Less than 1....The IRS people work very HARD. I don't think they work very much, but when they do they work hard at screwing up. They don't even know what the IRS regulation are !
Just as two IRS reps and see if your get the same answer for the same question !
Given the number you supplied: 70,000 / 140 / 2080 = .024 per hour.
That's 70,000 applications, 140 employees, 2080 is the amount of work hours in a year. Take 160 hours away for vacation and 160 hours away for sick time and you have .028 applications per hour. Do-able even by government standards.
I don't care...
Forget the math about how many apps they get. Is anyone disturbed by the fact that the DHS is watching us? What were they doing, filming? People we need to wake up and not later but NOW. We are quickly and I mean quickly moving to a Police State. Road side blood tests for DUI, citizens in wheel chairs beaten to death by cops in broad daylite. Roadside checkpoints, military police breaking into homes. Camera's and microphones on street corners and in buses, How do you think things happened in Germany, a step at a time. DOJ arming themselves to the teeth while trying to take our weapons and limit our ammo. Building Data centers to store all emails , texts, phone calls in the US. My God do you think this is all just by accident?
You are an A hole Kt. You apologize after grammar school math mistakes. Much like the IRS A Holes that target TAX PAYING Americans almost apologize for targeting, your apology is NOT accepted.
Thanks for the simplification. Yes, our federal government is totally out of control. We must keep up the pressure. How about several marches on Washington? A national protests at federal offices. Keep the e-mails and calls flowing to key supporters and those in opposition to our constitution? This is the time to press forward! We may not get another chance! Get off the keyboard and make a sign and head for a federal building you your area. Have we not had enough?
Why are these DHS buffoons riding around in vehicles that have "POLICE" marked on them? Someone needs to tell that idiot in the White House that America doesn't have a Federal Police Force.
This is the government being turned against the people is the Dept. of Homeland Security the civilian army that obama wanted? Under this Administration every arm of the Government is a political extension of obama. What does Homeland Security really do? We have ICE FBI DEA ATF EPA & TSA do they overlap????? or what.
Leave it the Blaze to report a good story then leave the lowest common denominator in threads on page one. The point of this story.....
Meet your domestic military police force your precious president proudly proclaimed to be part of his agenda from day one.
"Could the US be headed towards a military state" they ask after the marathon. HA!
Oh and don't worry beckians, Glenn debunked the Internment camp "conspiracy" for us. Go back to sleep.
Lerner just pled the fifth after declaring "I did nothing wrong". Then she left. Funny thing was another EMPTY CHAIR, not filled by a DEMOCRAT. DEMOCRATS suck
I don't agree with Keaton on any point, but the vitriolic name-calling is something I expect coming from the other side of the aisle. Catching someone in a mistake after they caught it themselves then proceeding to berate them over it just seems petty and childish. I'm not saying some people don't deserve it, but it would be nice for a little civility to demonstrate maturity. Then again, I am sure I am living in some fairyland in my head or something, this is the interwebs of course.
Actually the number is about 2.1 once you account for vacation/sick days, but that's such a small increase as to be practically irrelevant!
Average dave.. I am apparently ill informed when it comes to apology etiquette... my bad
DHS..organized .to protect airports.now a national police force.....?.....
to cut the head off the snake...first, identify the snake........is it the patriot act?
No wonder they are buying up all the bullets. From here on out we need an independent security firm to monitor such gatherings. The firm will be the people who attend the protest. If and when the DHS approaches anyone for harassment they will be arrested and handed over to the sheriff.
Math day at TheBlaze...
THEY ARE NOT POLICE BUT FEDERAL AGENTS
They wear the name police to confuse the public. They do not really have jurisdiction on private property. See how the local police cooperate with Federal. Where were the local police?
Keaton, you just made an azz hat of yourself...lol.
Just wait until they're in charge of processing healthcare paperwork for hundreds of millions of people :). Yeah, no worries. It'll all be just fine.
Don't connect the dots......http://videos2view.net/tax-fraud.htm
So their answer is to single out Conswervative groups to ask layer upon later of intrusive and nebulous questions thereby INCREASING their workload?! THAT is your logic?
But the leftwing prog apps sail right through. Their excuse doesn't even begin to pass the smell test. They were even demanding to know who teparty groups were parying to and the content of their prayers!
Keaton works for the IRS, too. He can't do math either.
Good catch Keatonc333 – The only people that don’t make mistakes are those who don’t do anything. Ya know like obama!!! Ya gotta admit he doesn’t make mistakes!
Ha Ha! And these are the math results we get before Common Core? Imagine what they are going to look like after our kids are indoctrinated with that curriculum. Just kidding folks (except for Common Core, a real disaster).
I see Beck rather lie than tell the truth. the Federal Protective Service was folded into DHS http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Federal_Protective_Service . They have always been a Federal Police force that guards federal property. It makes sense that they were present during the Tea Party demostrations. But, again, Beck rather lie than tell the truth.
Working at the IRS can best be explained below:
There are 365 days per year available for work.
On average an IRS employee has 2 days off per week. That leaves 261 days for work.
Since an IRS employee spends 16 hours each day away from work, they have used up 170 days., This leaves only 91 work days. Each employee, on the average. spends 30 minutes each day on smoke or coffee breaks which counts for 23 days each year. This leaves only 68 days available to work. With a 1 hour lunch each day, each IRS employee has used up another 46 days eating lunch. That leaves only 22 days available for work. The average number of days spent for sick time is two days. This leaves you only 20 days per year available for work. The IRS gives five holidays per year.
We are off 5 holidays per year, so your available working time is down to 15 days. An IRS employee receives two weeks vacation per year which leaves only one day available for work. So really there is no way 500 apps can be processed in one day.
Before you try doing the math on the above scenario, don't bother. :-O
Maybe the IRS should not use the false negative theory
This one whisked right through with retroactive approval:
"I fell like an A** my bad!"
One way to get over that is to go get a job! And stop spending your life, as a leftist, on a conservative site.
After you get a job, you can get a girlfriend. These things will really help you find yourself. Right now you are lost as a person and you know it.
in regards to the DHS....all federal law enforcement is now a part of DHS. ICE, INS, ATF, TSA etc etc. the FPS police handle security/law enforcement for all federal buildings/property etc.
Why should we even give these tax exempt status anyway... Conservative or progressive? Get rid of them and reduce the workload of the IRS. Never seen so many democrats upset at 501c3's... And the potential for them being used politically ( by the other side for a change). I guess Center for American Progress and Move On are "not political". Dems accept that Unions can have personhood status, but not businesses...? The 14th amendment seems to be applied selectively by democrats. I wish they would wake up.
These wonderful folks that took time out of their day, and were able to smile while standing in front of a homeland security vehicle are heroes. That woman standing alone is a hero too. Thank you.
Reduce the workload of the IRS by going to an equal tax. 10% of everyone's income. Simple!
It's time for each DHS agent to ask themselves "Are you with the US Constitution or are you against it and with the US President..."
Your 2 Billion worth of ammo will not be enough.
Choose very wisely what your actions will be from this point forward.. Ignorance is not an excuse.. Not at this point.
I do not recommend protesting alone. I used to do it, but times have changed
As the US govt has become repressive. If you have no witnesses, a bad apple
Of a cop or agent could try to cart you away on trumped up charges. You
Will not be able to prove that you were just peacefully picketing. But I
Applaud the lady who did it. Get everything on video, put it on youtube.
Glenn, can you research the fusion centers, at the blaze? They are dedicated
To spying on people who disagree with obama (us). We need a story on this,
Unless I missed it...
"Why were DHS Agents 'SEEMINGLY' monitoring..."
Excuse meeee- what the hell is 'seemingly' supposed to mean? Is there any doubt who it is? What kind of stoopiduty is that headline?
You have to understand that government workers are not driven by profit or the need to do an efficient job. Government innovation is an oxymoron. These workers require repeated breaks and downtime because their job is so....stressful.
you must not read the comment section at the Flame...er.....Blaze very often.
@everybody else: what part of 'homeland' confuses you so much?
