There is some possibility that after all these years Scotch Yoke engines may finally find an application running H2 and also as H2 range extenders.

There's a reason the venerable rotating crankshaft/swinging conrod/rocking piston layout continues to dominate engine design. With some notable forays by the Wankel of course.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scotch_yoke
The Scotch yoke is not used in most internal combustion engines because of the rapid wear of the slot in the yoke caused by sliding friction and high contact pressures[citation needed]. This is mitigated by a sliding block between the crank and the slot in the piston rod. Also, increased heat loss during combustion due to extended dwell at top dead centre offsets any constant volume combustion improvements in real engines.[4]

Historically yep, but they have apparently done some fancy engineering to overcome that.

The other reason for pursuing this design is the engine ends up physically smaller than any competing design.

How about a turbo flathead design? Boost solves cylinder filling and you effectively eliminate the cylinder head. A flat-four or flat six would be a treat. Tiny valves raise RPM limits. It has enough compression to start & run without the turbo. EFI makes it all work neatly. No real need for voodoo engines. Turbos and EFI are well sorted pathways. A 2L motor the size of an old VW sans heads making 200 BHP at 10,000 RPM sound fun?

" and the atechnical political lawmakers just go along with it out of ignorance"

I would potentially replace ignorance with "political convenience".

I would replace "political convenience" with "globalist agenda"
If I need to explain why I love to ride...... you probably wouldn't get it anyway.  ; >

aw come on everyone knows it's all a conspiracy to undermine american autonomy and authority and take our guns. the UN is their organ and it's all marxist-inspired.
never mind that when the aliens finally come out of their closet and reveal themselves to be tentacle-headed greys, we're gonna need a unified earth govt to confront them. all this anti-globalist sentiment is simply a manifestation of the aliens' devious plan to keep us divided and at each other's throats. so join the resistance, support the global agenda and give the greys the finger for god, country and the flag! it's everyone's patriotic duty. EARTH FIRST!

Urth Furst!  ;D

Lots of "ideers, key words & tricky phrases" here to study on...such as "intraterrestrials from Hollow Earth" aka "Reptilians"
:o
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_World_Order_(conspiracy_theory)
The New World Order (NWO) is a conspiracy theory that hypothesizes a secretly emerging totalitarian world government.
The common theme in conspiracy theories about a New World Order is that a secretive power elite with a globalist agenda is conspiring to eventually rule the world through an authoritarian one-world government—which will replace sovereign nation-states—and an all-encompassing propaganda whose ideology hails the establishment of the New World Order as the culmination of history's progress. Many influential historical and contemporary figures have therefore been alleged to be part of a cabal that operates through many front organizations to orchestrate significant political and financial events, ranging from causing systemic crises to pushing through controversial policies, at both national and international levels, as steps in an ongoing plot to achieve world domination.
Before the early 1990s, New World Order conspiracism was limited to two American countercultures, primarily the militantly anti-government right, and secondarily the part of fundamentalist Christianity concerned with the end-time emergence of the Antichrist.[8] Academics who study conspiracy theories and religious extremism, such as Michael Barkun and Chip Berlet, observed that right-wing populist conspiracy theories about a New World Order not only had been embraced by many seekers of stigmatized knowledge but also had seeped into popular culture, thereby inaugurating a period during the late 20th and early 21st centuries in the United States where people have been actively preparing for apocalyptic millenarian scenarios.[4][6] These political scientists wrote in the first decade of the 21st century about their concern that mass hysteria over New World Order conspiracy theories could eventually have devastating effects on American political life, ranging from escalating lone-wolf terrorism to the rise to power of authoritarian ultranationalist demagogues.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Globalism
The term is now frequently used as a pejorative by far-right movements and conspiracy theorists.[3] False usage in this way has also been associated with antisemitism, as antisemites frequently appropriate globalist to refer to Jews

H2 was always more suited to mining/on-farm/trucking/commercial fleets rather than individual personal transport.

Everything you mentioned often runs 24/7, so H2 is not practical for equipment that needs refueled at 3am or in western US where there's hundreds of miles between truck stops requiring every stop to have facilities to refuel.

Industrial equipment supply stations are built to supply the needs of the industrial equipment supplied. The usage is known beforehand, the process provides known salaries and tax revenues and so is actually important, the stations are operated by at least semi-trained personnel, it's a whole different animal than the "private car" installations. The whole point of H2 vehicles is to be able to travel hundreds of miles between fill ups, so that part of the calculation is a given. The 24/7 aspect is also an integral part of the calculation. Anyone involved in a process industry already knows all this, now you do too.

Just cover the country with overhead gantries and supply catenary power.

Here's a compact antenna that'll fit on the 2026 Suzuki Electro-Hayabusa with the room temp superconductor drive motor. It may require wearing a doped Kevlar Faraday Suit when the General Atomics Equatorial Orbital Power Platform starts beaming your power subscription down. Could be tough on the pillion too. :o ::)

Re reply 23 - Putin is saying neo colonialism is finished .I don't know what that is supposed to mean but I assume it is something to do with his idea of a new world order.
