    I am far too critical of authority to respect such things.

    I mean, if it's big deal illegal that's one thing, but ain't no guy in no suit gonna stop me from putting a quarter-inch steel armor, high traction tires, and a bulldowser blade on a retired school bus in case the zombie apocalypse happens and the authorities bungle it.

    Granted, converting the bus to run without gasoline is the harder animal. Can you convert a bus to an electric power with solar roofing?

    Technically yes. You just also have to replace the engine with an electric motor, and ideally add a large battery. Ideally solid, you don't want tanks of battery liquid sloshing around while you ram zombie raptors.

    In all honesty it would be easier to just build an electric bus.

    What I'd do is get one of those hydrogen powered buses. You can get fuel from electricity and water, can get good enough electricity from a bike dynamo (although refuelling might take a while, I haven't run the numbers), and in a pinch it's much easier to explode a hydrogen fuel cell than a battery. You can also set up a solar powered electrolysis station if you really want to.

    Probably, but building a bus from scratch might be more conspicuous that obtaining an old junker and fixing it up.

    Yu do have a point about hydrogen power. I keep forgetting that that's a thing because it didn't ake off like everyone said it would.

    Of course it's not taking off. Remember the Hindenburg. We use helium now.

    I'm pretty sure that stopping you is exactly what they can do.

    We used helium then. We just didn't want to give any to the Germans. And frankly, we should still be using hydrogen over helium.

    No, the guy in the suit can't stop you. They can threaten you, and if what you're doing is illegal they can sic the police on you, but the guy in the suit's power is limited to talking and if you're not actually doing anything wrong the worst they can do is force you to come before a judge and have a lawyer explain how the guy in the suit is wasting everyone's time.

    And I don't think there's anything particularly illegal about buying an old junker bus and converting it into a mobile emergency shelter that runs on renewable energy. At least no where I live.

    This is f course, assuming that you're not part of a HOA.

    I assumed the guy in the suit was a lawyer or judge, in which case they can stop you by means of siccing the police on you. But even in the case of any given person in any give suit, they can likely still stop you themselves.

    I was referring to a city clerk or perhaps some inspector coming buy who was tipped of by a nosey neighbor.

    The kind of person who asks if you have permits to do things.

    And it turns out that there are a lot of situations where you think you'd need a permit but don't actually need one... Though this is circumstnatial rather than general. do nto take anythign I am saying here as legal advice, thuroughly research your own situations before starting any major projects.

    To use my hypothetical, as far as I know there's nothing stopping me from buying a retiered bus and converting it as I described, assuming I can aquire all the nessesary parts through legal channels. But doing the same with a mobile home would be illegal even with a permit, unless I first aquired a seperate non-residential property to park the home on and did the conversion and storage there.

    The laws around where I live are weird and arbitrary.

    In such a case where a permit is not required in order to elgally construct something, the approaite response to someone asking for a permit is to politely inform them that you've done the research and a permit is not needed in this specific case and to contact a lawyer if they keep pressing the issue.

    Hence the qualifier "If it's big deal illegal that's one thing."

    IE, I'm not talking about situations where if you do not have a proper permit you will either go to jail or pay an assload of money. I'm talking minor things that really aren't major issues.

    Update on lemon rice soup: My entire family is kind of baffled that the recipe called for shredded chicken breast.

    Soup has a stronger lemon flavor than I'm used to, but is otherwise similar to restaurant quality.

    Future cookings might omit the chicken and increase the amount of rice.

    Seems like it went over well though?

    Also; I don't usually do this but I got fan art of Rei, wooo! You can see it here!

    Well, we went from four cups of it to having enough to fit into the bottom half of a left over plastic container from a chinese restaurant so I'm assuming everyone else liked it.

    I don't think it warrants a thread on this forum. Kaamelott is a very French product that never got any traction in non-French speaking countries*. We'd end up being a couple of French people discussing it in English which, while droll, would be cumbersome.

    *Sting is in it, though.
