got a radiator?

Does anyone have a small moto radiator that they don't need? it can be for any bike... I have a 4 ft fresnel lense ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fresnel_lens ) that I want to rig up to heat water as an experiment, so I'd be shining concentrated sunshine onto the radiator and moving water through it.

Auto heater radiator is easier to come by. Just watch your neighbors house...

I use an auto A/C condenser tied to my radiant heat boiler to heat my garage. I found the condenser new at NPS for $12. Sometimes they have heater cores too.

Soooo.....last night, I dropped my phone at the top of the stairs because I was reading a text message instead of watching what I was doing.... it bounced all the way down till it hit the tile floor with a loud "CRACK!"... Soooo, I had to go to the store today to get a replacement as the screen shattered....get done at the store and decide to get some dinner on the way home....slipped on some ice walking into the restaurant and of course had my brandy new phone in my hand cause I was looking at all the cool features on it.... Threw my hand up in the air to catch my balance...phone went flying out into the street and slid through the sand and grit.....didn't break funnily enough...but now my screen has two big scratches on it....I owned it for about 11 minutes....


God dammit,,,,
