Solfugid digging a hole in Iraq
This little guy was digging it's hole one morning.I walked over a mound of
dirt and saw him dart under a large dirt clod.I was going to pick it up to
take a picture of it when he came back out.It was completely oblivious to
me standing there.He was between three and four inches long.I don't know
exactly what it is.It's a Solfugid just like a Camel Spider but it isn't
the common Camel Spiders that we see here.It's front feeler "legs' are a
lot shorter then the average Iraqi Camel Spider and it's a different color.
Humvee Shootout! Banks Power Armored Humvee vs. Stock M1116 HMMWV! - Head 2 Head Ep 43
On this episode of Head 2 Head, Jonny Lieberman pits an American icon
against itself. Since 1984 AM General's Humvee has served as the U.S.
Military's primary multipurpose workhorse. However, after adding nearly
three tons of armor plating, the already slow, ill handling beast gets
slower and clumsier.
One solution is to replace it with a new truck, but that would cost us a
fortune. The other comes from Banks Engineering, which adds more
sophisticated turbocharging as well as a
revised, active suspension. If the Humvee is going to go down in history as
the truck version of the B-52, it needs upgrades similar to what Banks is
selling. That said, the Banks Humvee does cost a good deal more than the
base Humvee. However, it's a much cheaper alternative to something like an
MRAP or the Oshkosh L-ATV. But is it that much better than the regular
production Humvee? Watch and find out!
Head 2 Head appears every other Wednesday on the Motor Trend channel.

Airless tire test Humvee vs Hummer
Non-pneumatic tires (NPT), or Airless tires, are tires that are not
supported by air pressure. They are used on some small vehicles such as
riding lawn mowers and motorized golf carts. They are also used on heavy
equipment such as backhoes, which are required to operate on sites such as
building demolition, where tire puncture is likely. Tires composed of
closed-cell polyurethane foam are also made for bicycles and wheelchairs.
The main advantage of airless tires is that they cannot go flat, but they
are far less common than air filled tires.
Airless tires generally have higher rolling resistance and provide much
less suspension than similarly shaped and sized pneumatic tires. Other
problems for airless tires include dissipating the heat buildup that occurs
when they are driven. Airless tires are often filled with compressed
polymers (plastic), rather than air.
Michelin is currently developing an integrated tire and wheel combination,
the "Tweel" (derived from "tire" and "wheel," which, as the name "Tweel"
suggests, are combined into one new, fused part), that operates entirely
without air. Michelin claims its "Tweel" has load carrying, shock
absorbing, and handling characteristics that compare favorably to
conventional pneumatic tires. Automotive engineering group of mechanical
engineering department at Clemson University is developing a low energy
loss airless tire with Michelin through the NIST ATP project.
Resilient Technologies and the University of Wisconsin--Madison's Polymer
Engineering Center are creating a "non-pneumatic tire", which is basically
a round polymeric honeycomb wrapped with a thick, black tread. The initial
version of the tire is for the Humvee and is expected to be available in
