I worked with a fellow who was deaf since birth. He has a wife, children, and grand children. So don't use your losing half of your hearing in one ear as an excuse.
I work with a guy who is deaf and is married. He uses sign language, I don't. I am not using my hearing loss as an excuse.
To speak clearly requires normal hearing. Try asking your friend to talk, if he doesn't, then we are not dealing with the same situation.
And that would be why I know how Bessler's wheel worked. I've had a lot of free time to study and do home work. I've probably read at least a dozen books on physics. It helps to understand application when considering principles and laws in physics.
And if it makes you feel better, after my family kept me from fixing my car, I quit studying math and science. I got ran over by a van and it let me know I should not trust my own family.
I only started back in science and math after I got fired from my previous job because nobody I knew thought they should let me meet a woman.
if it wasn't for having over 4K in the bank, I never would have made it. It is like I told the gal who I am going to show it to, I do plan on speaking out against the discrimination that hearing impaired people have to tolerate.
And she also knows that I am building this so that I can have a life. Myself, I think there will be many disabled Veterans that will support me. After all, how long do you think it will be when people are tired of hearing about "I was in Iraq" or Afghanistan ? And I do believe that day will come.
@sirlips, when I realized that Bessler probably really did build a wheel is when I read about a witness' statement that his wheel had many compartments.
If you knew how Boeing makes the wings for it's planes, then it would make sense. Basically it's that he kept the weight down on his wheel.
BTW Mozart, I missed my recall to Boeing because my mother called up a friend of mine that I was staying with and he told me that she said I was retarded and needed to be taken care of. He told me that because I was retarded, he could not let me return to my job.
The reason I was in that position was because I watched my brother's kids so he could keep his job. His wife had left him.
Okay, ready for the snide remarks. Maybe you guys can start with "I should have gone to college like I wanted instead of joining the Navy". After that, I am sure you will have some good ones like "if I would've stayed out of church, I wouldn't have heard that part about being my brother's keeper".
I know you guys can do it, I hope you don't let me down, I really am counting on you guys to show some creativity here.
