Ones with electric solenoids on the doors that lock you inside, and disable the windows when someone presses the button to make it do so.


And what model vehicle sold in the US would have that feature?

PS 'Electric solenoid' is redundant. Solenoids are electric by definition.

Except for the hydraulic and pneumatic ones.

Ha, using the "more you know banner" while making a complete ass out of yourself is very funny...You know how I know you don't know what the word solenoid actually means?

My reading is fine. The action is ultimately tripped by the pressure, but doesn't happen without the current in the solenoid. It allows a small current to effect a large change. Regardless, calling a valve - or any other means of mechanical action - that operates without induction a solenoid is incorrect.

Yes, if we really want to start arguing etymology and semantics then solenoid can be used to convey the general shape/concept of a coiled wire. The initial use of 'electric solenoid' that set all of this off made it pretty clear that we weren't talking about meteorology or genetics.

Even if we do switch to the generic definition of the shape of a solenoid and ignore the electrical aspect, I am confused as to what you think a pneumatic solenoid actually is. Are you trying to argue that a pneumatic solenoid causes a mechanical change by routing the air in a spiral pattern?


I think you still don't get it. Here's a company that makes 'pneumatic solenoid valve actuators'. (no current required)

(Don't call it a mouse - the word 'mouse' can only be used to refer to a small, furry rodent)

They don't say exactly how it works, but I doubt it has anything to do with routing the air in a spiral pattern.

Parson1122: Let's get back to the electric or non electric solenoid debate.

Yes, we really derailed this thread. I would feel guilty about it, but knowing it would have somehow devolved into a "fark the police" thread anyway, I don't feel so bad about the nerd fight.

And this is why I always roll down the window BEFORE I close the door, when I steal a car.

MycroftHolmes: In before all the people who do not understand what entrapment is claiming that this is entrapment.


Entrapment or not, it is a horrible use of police resources. Criminalizing people who may have done nothing wrong, otherwise. Having officers sit around on the clock waiting in their running cars, looking at another car which is idling $4.00/gal gas, waiting for some oportunist to make a move. My favorite part is how they only stick these cars in urban areas. Because we know only "those" people would take a running car.

I still think the bait cars should be used for public humiliation. Like remote driving through a rough neighborhood, blasting Celine Dion.
