    Yeah, exactly. And even with a high temp difference the output leaves a lot to be desired.

    Actually, this does sort of work. Emitted light particles do generate thrust. Though, in most cases the thrust is so weak, it can be simply ignored and regarded as non-existent.

    That's what I was thinking too. If I'm not mistaken, light does have mass, but it's such an incredibly small mass that you'd need to shoot an unbelievable amount of light out the back to generate any useable amount of thrust.

    Although in it's defense, you are technically traveling at the speed of light relative to the light itself.

    Hey Guys,

    Due to a very long and arduous day of nonstop work, my aversion to drawing and posting winners at a late hour, and the calling of my bed at a decent hour, we decided to postpone drawing til tomorrow. Drawing the winners takes a while (believe it or not), and once the winners are posted, it takes a while to get all posted and PM'd. As I need to get to bed at a decent hour, tomorrow will be the drawings.

    So I will be back tomorrow at a respectable hour, right after work hopefully, and we will get all these games out to their new owners.

    (This also gives everyone another day to get an entry in, or if need be, edit their entry)

    Thanks for all your patience and understanding in this matter :)

    -Matt

    I just saw this from a friend. He said, ""the amount of energy released through the fusion reaction exceeded the amount of energy being absorbed by the fuel - the first time this had been achieved at any fusion facility in the world."

    Can I enter? :D Seeing the "CEP2 Challenge" on the title, and I'm not running any CEP2 WU's right now, just FA@H.

    If I can enter then I would like to enter for King's Bounty Pack (and of course Batman Arkham Origins).

    But if I can't enter then here's my idea about clean energy;
    Couple days ago my little brother showed me this link : http://www.pavegen.com/
    Basically they used kinetic energy from human steps to generate electricity. Pretty neat.

    Thanks for the giveaway and good luck to all :)

    Wondering if my HD4000 qualifies for a game with this requirement. I think the 4000 uses my ram as it's source. Am I wrong for believing that?

    Congratulations, Y'all! :peace:
    Especially You, Bow! You lucky sucka! Congrats on winning the Grand Prize, man! *gives bow a noogie* :toast:

    For which game?

    Fix'd it for Ya! :laugh:
    Games are cool, and some of us just got more of this goodness, but indeed - don't lose to Steam & The Church of Gaben. Stay clean of games just a little longer; until the challenge is done!
    EDIT: I somehow managed to place "to" at a wrong spot. Fix'd it for myself. Which is kinda ironic knowing I was "fix'ing it for Ya" :D

    Also, take note to this line Manofthem left. *nods* :)

    Perhaps I should reword my post. :shadedshu

    Thanks for donating Dano :respect:, but we didn't get an entry for that this time around. When I announced the winners, I mentioned some games left over and for interested ones to pm the owners, so if you didn't receive a pm, maybe hang onto it for next time.

    We all appreciate the generous attitude though of all the donator!
