    Her ass is right.
    Wait, did that sound bad….?

    I figure if we get a couple more of these it will cancel Global Warming. Who else wants one?

      Be careful what you wish for…

    Pretty sure I know what that other eight percent is…

    Sounds like the holy grail of physicists — energy from the earth’s magnetic field aka Atlas Shrugged.

      Also Nikola Tesla!

    A heat sink like that might work in the desert, but elsewhere? Elsewhere is going to require some source of energy input because there won’t be enough heat to power it. My opinion, I have not seen any reports on this sort of thing in real life.

      I’ve seen a heat pump draw heat from temps 0C. Some nitwit specified a heat pump for the HF radio site I helped build at Osan AB, Korea in ’80. It could either heat or cool the building as needed, Unfortunately, if it was in heating mode the coils outside got so cold they froze the moisture out of the air and clogged up so no air could pass. BUT! The system was smart enough to recognize the condition and defrost the coils outside – by pumping heat from INSIDE the building! There it was, 3 inches of snow on the ground and the system was blowing cold air into the building! When it was doing that we used to open the doors to get to warm up a bit. Stone bitch to work with your hands in below 10 degrees F! Colder’n any part of a witch (or fembot šŸ˜‰ ) you wanna mention.

        All my avionics shops had conventional AC. I know that heat pumps are supposed to draw heat from the outside during cold times or something like that but I was told that they are extremely inefficient at it. Never experienced a heat pump, knowingly. But, the surface area of this ‘bot is probably not enough to draw in enough heat in anything except a desert to power the ‘bot.

        Yes, the shiny surface looks nice and sexy but it reflects energy as mentioned elsewhere here. Dark surface and a lot of rest time, to store energy, would seem to be required.

      • I use a heat pump to both heat and cool my house in Canada. There is an oil furnace to supplement the heat pump when it is too damn cold to work properly.
        A few years ago the old heat pump gave up the ghost (25 years old!) and I had to run on oil. Holy Crap was that a lesson in efficiency!
        With the heat pump I used about 200 liters of oil per year, I used 200 liters in the 2 months it took to replace the unit.
        The new one is great, in the last 3 years it has not used 500 liters, and we’ve had some bitchin’ cold winters here. 1000 liter tank, not yet down to 1/2 in 3 years.
        Love the cool in the summer too.

    Discrimination against sexbots is the most important civil rights issue of our time.

      Now we can add an ā€œiā€ to the end of LGBetc.

    Got an idea. Have the bot absorb a small thorium power supply to supply heat to it could operate close to 98.6 or in very cold temps (arctic or antarctic). That or it could draw heat out of whatever it was touching (the floor, a wall, a bed šŸ˜‰ ) so it could operate at body temperature. Otherwise it would be too easy to detect.

    To maximize her power she needs to turn flat black to absorb every available erg.
    And immersion in water may be a hazard because she could easily encase herself in a block of ice. She’d have to shut down and thaw out to move again.
    The power available is dependent on the temperature differential, and given her surface area and mass there’s actually not much between Texas and absolute zero.
    OTOH, if she really needed power in a hurry she could dress up in ordinary clothes and carry a flask of gasoline with her. Dousing herself and setting herself on fire could really give her a boost. Not to mention scare the bejezus out of someone.

    There are some issues with the laws of thermodynamics, but with and ass like that? Meh…

  • jdow

    Hm, it must be cartoon physics where thermodynamics work very differently than what I learned in engineering school.

    In real physics you can extract energy from the difference in temperature between two objects. Unfortunately, she is only a singular object, one might say “quite singular” at that. Either she has a micro-nuclear (cold-fusion?) power plant and is rather hot on the outside, which is fitting, or it’s pure cartoon thermodynamics.

    Dayam I drove off a lot of men with my nattering about Maxwell’s equations and all that stuff. It took a long time to find a good one not askeered o’ tall old me. And, no, I do not have a big ass like the appropriate character here. But, I do like Sam. She, too, will someday get old like me wandering through her 8th decade. I wonder if the Dawgs will still be needed then or there will actually be a functional wall.

    {^_-} (I’ll answer to Jo most of the time for people I know.)

    Forget the ass. Where’s the baby bump?
