Closing down
It has come to my attention that there is an older "open chat" community.

I really don't care *who* is the moderator so I'm closing this down so that we can consolidate all the "open chat" pagan communities.

GO TO opencircle (or since that's dying down too... pagan_blurb)

Post here with any concerns.

Ok, just remembered this from last night and am throwing it open to all the places where I *might* be able to get a clue about this. Story is... I was sat in a pub last night with some of the lads from uni. (last day an' all that) and we got on to the subject of religion, and, because I'm me, I just had to mention my Lokeanism (see j, this is the Fundi stuff, and I *don't take the word as an insult). T looked somewhat stunned at this, and then we had a rather interestin' conversation... T's agnostic, but apparently well read on the subject of religion (his words, which I have no reason to doubt), but he mentioned a summat I've only come across in the film Dogma - namely Loki being an Angel. Now he's (T) admitted he may be mis-remebering this, so I'm not gonna hold my breath for any more info., but if anyone DOES know anything about Loki being an angel (not the Norse version iow), I'd be interested in finding out about it.

X-posted to just about everywhere I can think of that might have peeps with a vague idea of how true or not this is - apologies to those seeing it half a billion times.

March 18th is BIODIESEL DAY!
Have you eyes been "opened" by the Peak Oil theory? Do you worry about the slow death of our society?

You've not been given all of the facts. "Life After the Oil Crash" and their dated reports (data from 1993, 1997, and 1999) criticize biomass and ethanol based fuels as costing more to produce than their energy output. They state "No Comprehensive Replacement in Sight".

However Biodiesel production is affordable and efficient! Biodiesel production process's inputs are 87% vegetable OR animal oils & fats, 12% alcohol, and ~1% catalyst. The outputs of this process are 4% alcohol, 1% fertilizer, 9% glycerin (resold to make soap), and 86% product (methyl ester). The production of biodiesel is a low temperature (150 F) and pressure (20 psi) process.

The current trend in biodiesel production is limited, but gaining speed with 15 million gallons produced in 2002 and projected 20 million gallons in 2003. The biodiesel industry has a solid foundation and some of your senators & representatives have made tax incentives and biodiesel promotion a priority.

You can use 100% or "neat" biodiesel, known as B100. A 20% mixture, or B20, is the most common, and if you aren't ready to convert or require premium fuel with a very high cetane you can use B2 and gain the bennefits of reduced engine wear and cleaner emissions.

You can use biodiesel in your modern diesel vehicle with engine modifications required only if your vehicle has natural rubber components in its fuel system (pre 1990's vehicles). You can almost always use B20 with no risk to your engine warranty.

Compare to current diesel used in performance vehicles. The average cetane rating for diesel sold in north America is 40-45. The minimum specified cetane for biodiesel is 47.

Biodiesel has squashed the competition at the Tour de Sol. In 2001 a B50/electric hybrid placed first, a B20 vehicle placed 4th, and a B100/electric hybrid placed 5th. In 2003 a 1996 Volkswagen Passat TDi took 1st place in many categories running B100.

If you are interested in switching to biodiesel consult your mechanic, and find a Biodiesel retail location (continental US).

My next gas vehicle will be biodiesel powered!

So do I have to behave in here then? ;) Seriously though, thanks to karlthepagan for setting up a community that's obviously needed.

Oh, and does anyone have a clue how to stop a cockatiel from sneezing?

As I have some experience moderating and with mostly unmoderated lists I've created a community for all of the fluff, junk, trite, banter, etc etc etc that doesn't pass the filter for pagan moderators.

Join pagan_chat, but be prepared for fluff like you've never seen before.

Rules are simple:
1. No trolling.
2. Lj-cut NSFW material.
3. Follow LJ's TOS.

edit: turned on comments. WELCOME!
