    Russian work, nice development and a lot of room for improvement, right now generating 3300 milliwatt hours per gram, lot more than chemical units.

    https://phys.org/news/2018-06-prototype-nuclear-battery-power.html

    Sorry, mis spelled nickel. Nickel-63 cells.

    The hard part it looks like is the diamond cells.

    Half-life of 100 years it can power pacemakers right now, microwatts out for now but that will get much better in the future.

    Also accidentally put it here in general, probably not much interest in this development here.

    So you admire a battery of nickel
    Or is it really The Hammer and Sickle
    We know your views are on the left
    And that all Capitalism is theft
    But this might get you in a pickle

    A battery made of nickel 63
    Is it enough to set us free
    Not only will it keep our heart beating
    But it can control our central heating
    It might even fix my dodgy knee



    Is this any better ?

    A bit better but you have to realize limericks have to flow,

    There was a young lady from Britain
    who wanted a pudgy young kitten

    See the dif? Try completing it.

    So GBS wants to meet Kim
    I don't envy him
    He will have to eat dog
    There is no roast hog
    But he will come back very slim.

    that's better. I will feed her on fruit should be I'll feed her on fruit.

    Last line should have 9 syllables maybe like this:

    Cause I am so wonderfully smitten.

    That isn't quite right either, it needs a 3 syllable word and I think technically wonderfully has 4 so it needs to be pronounced 'wonderflee'. Am trying to thing of another word that flows.

    Maybe

    Cause I am so thoroughly smitten.

    So

    She cried 'it's so cute'
    I'll feed her on fruit
    cause I am so thoroughly smitten.

    See the difference in the flow?

    So I think the convention is 9, 9, 5, 5, 9 syllables per line.

    I saw Captain Strange in a whorehouse
    whose girlfriend was eating a dormouse.
    I think it had mange
    she said to old Strange
    but ate one more down by her townhouse.

    I think that one flows at leastπŸ™‚

    Talk is cheap but so am I
    if he gets his way
    he'll blow us high
    but I'm not afraid
    we all have to die...eventually.

    Was very skillful guitar work. But the subcript translator was a bit off.
