For example, if you've bended a square meter of aluminium plate and are around when it sould be turned towards the Sun you'd already done the most of it.
(around a horizontal tube)

OK done that," had a bit of trouble with the horizontal tube bit" but got there in the end, and turned it into the Sun, but my electric meter is still going around so fast that I got quite giddy so I must have done something wrong.
If possible please post full construction details, to enable me to Finnish, this project.

Aye, just not a very good one. Depending how you measure it, of course :lol:

Funnier than Monty Python. Could have his own show.
Just because you see two eyes shining in the jungle at night, do not think that the worse thing that could happen is that you are about to be attacked by a tiger. It could be two one-eyed tigers.

My brief experience of this site is a lot of very special people trying to help each other with projects ranging from the very simple to the very complex. Good humour, helpful advice but on only two or three times I have encountered people with agendas that are odd. This is one of them. Trolls or whatever but so good that this site deals with them appropriately :icon_smile:

I tried reverse translating and then translating back to English. It still makes no sense:

For example, if you have to persuade the square aluminum plate and around the cube is turned towards the Sun you were already out of it.
(approximately horizontal tube)

It's even more fun if you translate that English to Chinese and back again:

For example, if you want to convince the cube of a square aluminum plate and around the turn to the sun has come out.
(Approximately horizontal tube)

I wonder what language it started out being? The original post looks like it's been translated online.

This reverse translation gets funnier:

Blood of Mary Stuart is weak.

Footprint of the blood, Mary Stuart is small.

Mary Stuart is small?! I thought she was quite dead!

Makes perfect sense translated to Arabic and then back again!

Even better in Irish ...
Mar shampla, má tá tú bended méadar cearnach de phláta alúmanam agus tá timpeall nuair sould é a iompú i leith an Sun mhaith déanta agat cheana féin an chuid is mó de.
(thart ar feadán cothrománach)

And back again ...
For example, if you have bended square meters of aluminum plate and is around when it sould be turned towards the Sun like you've already made ​​the most of.

I think there is a typo in the post title too. It should read 'Britons Get Your Cats Together!' Seemingly the Finns have discovered cats are great energy saving devices.
