Travel / Re: This Is How Human Waste Is Evacuated From An Aeroplane. (photos And Video) by lofty900(m): 6:04am On Aug 15

For those who fly a lot and who travel on long journeys in an aircraft I’m quite sure you must have been pressed at one time or the other and please don’t pretend, it’s normal. Have you ever wondered what the airlines do with your poopoo ? Don’t think when you flush the toilet, the whole faeces just fly out of the aircraft into the air. In this post I will be telling you exactly what the airline do with all your poo and how they dispose them.



In every long flight, you are always served with food which may go down well with your system or not, for some people the food may not go down well with their stomach and they will end up using the toilet up to 4 or 5 time before they arrive their destination. Well, in this weird post I want to really explain what they do with the wastes in the aircraft.

All aircraft sewage system uses the vacuum toilet which relies on strong suction, the toilet bowl is coated well coated to prevent sticky stuff. When the flush button is pressed, a valve opens sucking down the contents of the toilet bowl with a speed that is faster than the speed of a formula one car through the pipes and into a very large tank which is installed at the bottom of the aeroplane. Once the plane touches the ground, it needs to do two things, refuel and empty the sewage tank. The plane will never take off for it’s next flight until the sewage (human waste) is removed.

The sewage truck or honey truck



This is where it gets real nasty. The waste disposal truck also called the vacuum truck or honey truck comes to the rescue. Hmmm, honey truck ! It’s one of the first vehicles to reach the airplane at the gate. This sewage truck has a 800 gallon stainless steel tank which is equipped with a very powerful vacuum that can fill that huge tank in just 10 minutes. But the sad thing is, the honey truck driver still has to connect the sewage pipe with his hand.

nice thread. Now I know

"Money" has always been Apple's motivation for everything. Do I blame them though?
yeah but I think they're beginning to get greedy. There are many Americans who spend a whole year just paying installments on apple products. How will they cope with this new strategy? They're not considerate at all....

Getting a puncture on the road is always a problem, and it can be dangerous enough to cause a deadly accident. Tyre Armour (sealant) is also a preventive treatment installed in tyres for instantly and permanently repairing punctures on the go. Who's with me on this.

It's obviously a new secretariat that Magnus Abe's faction wants to open.

"How to use the new WhatsApp group video feature in HD quality"

then you're telling us that by default it is in HD quality...click baits will probably bring you traffic at first but quality posts keep the traffic, not shitposting for the sake of blogging.

i honestly opened this hoping to learn a trick but disappointed again just like the time you wrote pros and cons of having a CCTV and the cons were absolute nonsense.

if only we could see the author of posts just after the title before opening the post itself, that'd be great
you're not doing him any favor by reading his posts. Don't make it sound like you're important.

What's with Dwayne Johnson and Ford F-150 trucks? That's how the other day he gave his uncle F-150, now again his cousin. Maybe it's because their body is too big to fit inside a small sports car like Lamborghini, Ferrari etc cheesy

Phones / The All New Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 Has Been Unveiled: See Specs, Price And Photos by lofty900(m): 6:24am On Aug 02
TechCapon



The month of August is going to be a big month for Samsung fans as the smartphone giant plans to launch two products simultaneously, the Galaxy Note 9 and the Galaxy Tab S4. The new Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 has announced released and it’s what I can comfortably call the most powerful Android tablet of 2018 and I also believe it’s better than the Apple’s iPad Pro 10.5 in terms of design as it come with a new slim bezel-less design that makes it stand out from the others. One thing that surprised me is that Samsung didn’t include a fingerprint sensor on this beautiful device rather they opted to add facial unlock and iris scanning. I know a lot of users would still prefer to have the good old fingerprint sensor either front or rear mounted but this new facial scanning is also cool, once you get used to it, you’ll love it. The front camera has a bright LED flash that enables the facial unlock to work pretty well even in low light conditions.




The new Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 is a 2-in-1 tab which can transform into a PC or a Tab depending on how yo want it. That only happens when you get the $150 (N54,000) keyboard case which in my opinion is quite expensive. The big bright 10.5 inch AMOLED display has all it takes to rival the Apple iPad 10.5 inch display in terms of display quality and it come with the S Pen stylus right out of the box (unlike Apple which charges extra money for the Apple Pencil).

What we like about the Galaxy Tab S4

What we don’t like

Too expensive

Prices will start at $650 (235,000 approx.) for the 64GB model while the 256 GB model sits at $750 (N27,000 approx.).

It will be available from August 10th.

Very nice thread TechCapon. I remember it was cctv camera that helped to solve the murder of this beautiful South African girl Mokoena karabo. The cctv video shows him enter the hotel with the girl and driving out with her corpse inside the trunk of his car. He burnt her corpse to ashes. This guy is a devil. Thank God he received 30 years prison sentence.

Most of these OEMs have low budget phones that are on par with the best from Tecmo, Infinix, et al. Nigerians are blinded by the Megapixels they are enticed with by Tecno and Infinix without knowing the quality of a camera isn't just on the Megapixels it comes with.

Xiaomi has some phones around the 60k mark. People should learn to expand their horizons.
