dear XXX,

I CALL THIS AN INTELLIGENT FILTER -- 

FOR CORRUGATION HAS INCREASED ITS  EFFECTIVE SURFACE AREA BY > 100% --

this " thumbs up " is NOT for engine room cosmetics at all --

it is for sustaining PRINCIPLES OF ENGINEERING --

-- if you see latest model vacuum cleaners -- they all have gone for the  corrugated filters , instead of saggy air bags --

most problems in internal combustion machinery in engine room is due to lack of air volume in the cylinder. 

a look at the smoke emission from the funnel clearly shows when air is starved.

it has become STYLISH and TRENDY to put THICK pad filters on ME and AE  turbochargers --

visiting superintendents always give good reports for  such mindless acts , even in pressurized engine rooms with funnel door  and skylights open --

when i went back on XXX the second time ( after 3 years of  delivery ) -- the engine room had developed amazing engineering problems  -- vital machinery would just break into pieces.

i joined at XXX ( with an active volcano spewing ash , 1 mile off the berth ) - --

-- on departure, as soon as the pilot was dropped, i called up chief engineer ( all know who this is ) and told him to remove all filters on ER vents --

since he was NOT willing to remove it , and was ready to fight over it -- i had to threaten him with DISMISSAL WITHOUT NOTICE  at next port ( i was dead serious !!) -- 

--and then it was done el pronto -

the ship had a VAST CRITICAL RANGE between half ahead and full ahead of main engines -- 

-- excessive time to MOVE THROUGH this banned range-- caused excessive vibrations -- the funnel stack vibrates like crazy --

if the boiler stack vibrates -- the downcomer caused the boiler circ pump shaft to vibrate -- the causes the bearings to disintegrate and pump shaft to break--  

this was a recurrent problem.  all were on a wild goose chase -- doing mindless CURE day after day--

-- never any PREVENTION --

vibrations in engine room can cause a mechanical woodward governor of generator engines to malfunction -- after all it is flying centrifugal weights --

-- and a blackout--

all machinery in ER has its own NATURAL frequency.  

they will RESONATE joyfully by raising or lowering their frequency at max amplitude.  

a series of such vibrations will multiply several times its own pitch thus increasing HARMONICALLY all that are nearby--

thanks and best regards

    Respected Captain,

    What is special about Tamil Nadu?

    How come it is able to continuously produce word geniuses like Ramanujam, Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar, C.V. Raman, A.R. Rahman, Abdul Kalam, Venkatraman Ramakrishnan, Viswanathan Anand, Illayaraja, etc?

    Even till recently the Chief Justice of India, the Finance Minister, the RBI governor are all Tamils?

    Is there any scientific reason behind this? Because no other region has produced such super genius people in such numbers.

    Regards

    hi ch,

    i am sure if i were a lawyer, i will NEVER EVER become CJI.

    i am sure if i were an economist, i will NEVER EVER become finance minister.

    you want me to continue ?

    when i was on my training ship in mumbai with 250 other cadets ( two years ) -- the biggest TELUs ( oily and slimy ) and SNEAKS ( snitches ) became SCC ( senior cadet captains ) , CC ( cadet captains ) , CL ( cadet leaders ) etc.

    i used to be in the CAPTAINS MONTHLY BREAKFAST PARTY ( cadet with maximum negative marks for OFFICER LIKE QUALITIES ) -- to be chewed up for breakfast every month .

    i got an EXTRA FIRST in every subject --except OFFICER LIKE QUALITIES.

    now what are OFFICER LIKE QUALITIES-

    being a son of a bit#h, being a sneak, being a hypocrite, being a as$ kisser , being a leader who will sell out his team, being a back biter, being an informer , being the best in playing to the gallery.

    so, so--

    at the passing out parade --most of the cadets who got all PRIXES were leaders -- they all got BOOOOOEEEEED !

    I remember i got only one prize--for being the best REPORTER IN ENGLISH -- the claps I got from the entire hall still resound in my ears -- along with another ROC ( royal officer cadet -who did NOT care to become a sold out leader ).

    and mind you -- i was in every single team which made my TOP ( starboard fore top ) the champion TOP.

    i was a champion sailor, rower, signaller, marks in subjects, soccer team in both years --

    but i lacked OLQ ( officer like qualities ) of being a FU#KIN' SLIME BALL.

    so in my passing our certificate , after two years of training -- i had an EXTRA FIRST in all subjects -- except OLQ where i was third grade

    so i guess they held a special meeting and GRACED ME TO FIRST CLASS --a young 18 year old boy -- .TEE HEEE !

    AT SEA, THE SAILORS DO NOT CARE FOR YOUR FOUR STRIPES- THEY ONLY CARE FOR WHO YOU ARE--

    AT SEA PEOPLE WHO KNOW ME , OR HAVE HEARD OF ME -- OR SAILED WITH ME, WILL VOUCH--

    CAPT AJIT VADAKAYIL WAS A SLAVE MORE POWERFUL THAN THE MIGHTY FU#KIN' CAESAR -- BY LIGHT YEARS .

    this has now passed on to LORE -- never ti happen again in the annals of sea .

    am i boasting ?

    -- so be it !

    humility is NOT about having a low opinion of yourselves to please the JEALOUS party.

    see, this would have been part of my post-- GAMES CAPTAIN PLAYED--

    you made me reveal it prematurely --with your TAMIL PRIDE ! TAKE IT EASY !

    check out my training ship-

    STOP PRESS:

    I AM WRITING THIS AS I PROMISED ONE OF MY READERS 45 MINUTES AGO-- HE RAN UP TO ME DURING MY MORNING WALK--

    HE WANTED TO KNOW OUT OF MY 300 PLUS SCOOPS IN MY NEARLY 845 ODD POSTS--WHICH IS NO 1 AND WHICH IS NUMBER 300.

    ############

    well let me make it clear , these 300 scoops are CONSTRUCTIVE SCOOPS .

    all these 300 scoops are in the plane of INVENTION and NOT innovation.

    none of these 300 scoops are DESTRUCTIVE -- so my posts proving that edison, newton, darwin, einstein etc are IDIOTS does not find a place in these scoops.

    so waht could be the no 1 scoop?

    it is about providing a HINT on how to make a astronaut hibernate while travelling to mars -to cut down on food and water .

    it is about keeping alive a seriously wounded soldier till he can find proper medical care.

    HIBERNATION WITH HYDROGEN SULPHIDE GAS VADAKAYIL

    and

    FUMAROLES FOR FREE ENERGY AND HYDROGEN SULPHIDE SUICIDES IN JAPAN VADAKAYIL


    one of my russian chief engineers who lived near siberia , a place infested with HUGE bears had once woken up a bear while on hibernation in a cave ( as a child ) and he told be how furious the animal was. Before they go into months of hibernation they would kill a large animal ( bury the dead animal it in the ground ) and would NOT eat it unless it became putrid , reeking of rotten eggs..

    WELL WHAT WOULD BE NO 300 RANK.

    it is about PIN WORMS on as$hole.

    Check out the comment dated 18th Dec 2013 , about surcharging the anus with oxygen 5 times a day to prevent pinworms disrupting your REM sleep. This is a 6000 year old Ayurvedic cure for pinworm which happens when you eat non-veg heavy meats and do NOT wash your as$hole after a crap.

    VEDIC PRACTISES IN MECCA VADAKAYIL

    If I were a white JEW, I would have been an international celebrity. but then who cares?

    I have reached a stage where ONLY I can evaluate myself--

    one of my DUTCH bosses tried to patronise me nearly 2 decades ago -- he said he has given me a good confidential service report-

    so i told him something in Hindi -- with its translation.

    VADAKAYIL KHUD QUESTION PAPER SET KARTA HAI !

    VADAKAYIL KUD EXAM LIKTHA HAI !!

    VADAKAYIL KHUD NUMBER DETA HAI !!!

    capt ajit vadakayil sets his own exam question paper, he writes the exam , and then he gives himself the marks .

    THIS IS THE MEANING OF LIBERATION.

    believe me -- that man hugged me ( NO patronising here ) and said -- he expected such an frank retort from me .

    he said- every other captain would have said thank you .

    he was told to enter into this dialogue by the single man owner of that shipping company . this was about my " CUT THE CRAP " EMAILS -- where i would point out that the EMPEROR IS NAKED .

    99% of the people will NOT even understand the wisdom and gravity of the statement above.
