St. John’s, Newfoundland – Signal Hill, overlooking the city of St. John’s, is where the first transatlantic wireless radio transmission was received by Guglielmo Marconi, on Dec. 12, 1901 (Historica video). The three dot message signal (morse code for the letter ‘S’) was transmitted from Poldhu, Cornwall, England. Marconi had a receiver wired to a kite that was flying 120 metres (400 feet) in the air. You can see and exhibit of the event in Signal Hill’s Cabot Tower. The Tower was built to celebrate the 400’s anniversary of John Cabot’s visit to the New World and Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee. From the hill, not only do you have a spectacular view of the city, but at times it’s possible to spot whales and icebergs.

  1. Convert 8 Methane gases, into 4 Ethane gases! 8C – 4C2
    Then convert those 4 Ethane gases into 2 Butane gases! 4C2 – 2C4
    Then convert those 2 Butane gases into 1 Octane gas! 2C4 – 1C8
    Then condense that Octane gas (C8) into Octane gasoline (C8) or Jet Fuel!
    We electrolyse 8 flare gas into 1 Jet Fuel! Profitable?

    NL. can use this technology by drilling a well hole from the Avalon Peninsula to take Churchill River electricity under the Atlantic Ocean floor towards Hibernia Offshore Oil Producing Platform and therefrom another well will go to Hebron Offshore Oil Producing Platform!

    By using Labrador hydro-electricity those rigs can dispense with the motors aboard those Platforms and electrolyse their Methane into 1/8 as much Octane gasoline! We can get extra Methane gas by horizontally drilling East of their blocks into unclaimed territory!

    SECRET FORMULA to make synthetic Octane gasoline (C8):
    Dear sir, you know that, to make synthetic Octane gasoline from limestone, will both
    1) decrease Carbon content of the gasoline from around of 10, to 8 (less Carbon & more efficient!)
    2) Liberate 3x Oxygen as 1x Carbon (enough Oxygen to combust the
    Carbon + 50% extra)! Conventional gasoline, oil, production doesn’t produce any Oxygen! India and The P.R.C. need that Oxygen to breathe! The fresh Oxygen made by switching from a standard gasoline, weighing 10 Carbons heavy, to synthetic Octane gasoline, weighing only 8 Carbons heavy, holds 10x—2= -20 Oxygen heavy vs 8×3-8×2 = +24 -16 = + 8 Oxygen made from the CaCO3 or KCO3, -20 vs (-16 +24 = +8) = fresh Oxygen better to consume synthetic Octane gasoline than conventional gasoline! -20 or +8 Oxygen?

    It’s mathematically 28 Oxygen better to produce synthetic Octane gasoline than conventional petroleum! That’s the math how much
    fresh Oxygen is made by switching to synthetic Octane gasoline!

    To make gasoline from 8x limestone molecules, just
    1) Chemically react 8x limestone, 8x(CaCO3), with 8x Hydro-Chloric acid, 8x(H2Cl) making 8x(Carbon) and 3×8 is 24x Oxygen!
    2) Electrolyse those 8x Methane (8C) into 4x Ethane (4C2)!
    3) Electrolyse those 4x Ethane (4C2)into 2x Butane (2C4)!
    4) Electrolyse those 2x Butane (2C4) into 1x Octane (1C8)!
    5) Condense that Octane gas (C8) into Octane (C8)gasoline!
    6) I CAN DO IT! You’ll defeat OPEC and get 40% of shares in my patent controlling corporation for your funding this experiment while I’ll get 60% of the shares in my patent controlling corporation since it was my idea! Have your receptionist contact William Smallwood @ (0)01-709-834-9700 If you don’t trust my word a patent test will verify who’s right!

    You don’t have to worry about my inventive speed, BUT all those people on the Internet wanting to patent how to make oil from rock! You also have to worry about the firms I independently emailed! Financing this experiment is estimated to cost $5,000 – $20,000! You MAY still electrolyse 8x Methane gases (8C) into 1x synthetic Octane gasoline (C8) EVEN IF converting 8x Limestone or 8x Potash Rock into 1x synthetic Octane gasoline is too expensive!

    What I imagine doing is to first
    1) try to chemically convert 8x Methane gas (8C) into 1x synthetic Octane gasoline (C8), then secondly
    2) try to convert 8x Limestone molecules, 8x(CaCO3), into 1x synthetic Octane gasoline (C8), then thirdly
    3) try to convert 8x Potash Rock molecules, 8x(KCO3), into 1x synthetic Octane gasoline (C8)!
    That was an offer I emailed to PetroChina but I make the same offer to you if you agree to it before someone else takes this offer!

    This is how to chemically convert 8 molecules of limestone into 1 molecule of synthetic Octane gasoline;
    0) Acquire 8 salt (NaCl) and electrolyse into 8 Hydro-Chloric acid: 8(H2Cl)!
    1) Chemically react 8 molecules of limestone, CaCO3, with 8 molecules of Hydro-Chloric acid, H2Cl!
    2) Electrically separate (via electrolysis) the Carbon from the 3 Oxygen and dump the Oxygen!
    3) The Carbon, called Methane, is then electrolysed into Ethane!
    4) The Ethane (C2) is then electrolysed into Butane (C4)!
    5) The Butane (C4) is then electrolysed into Octane (C8)!
    6) The Octane gas is then condensed into Octane gasoline, Jet Fuel!
    7) The 8 Carbons that compose Octane gasoline are matched with 24 free floating Oxygen!
    8) I know how to make synthetic Octane gasoline from 1) Methane gas & 2) Limestone, CaCO3, & 3) Potash rock, KCO3!
    9) I’m William Roy Whiteway Smallwood @ censored!

    If you don’t trust my word I’ll put my word up against a mere patent test you’ll pay for to get 40% of my patent! Then you’ll own 40% of my natural gas into Octane gasoline (C8) business!
