Re: LENR Is Real

I meant that the natural isotopic mix (20% 62Ni, the rest mostly 58Ni) turns into 99% 62Ni in the ash. The Nickel is only one element in the chemical composition. I think this is what you conclude. That transmutation releases (a lot) energy. So if you view the 58N etc as fuel, turned to 62Ni ash, as...

Re: LENR Is Real

It is fascinating deconstructing these Rossi tests - every one has different issues! First the 62Ni. That was found 99% pure in the ash, and natural (20% 62Ni) in the fuel. It is clear evidence of fraud, which Rossi could easily do even under observation by switching a sample at either end of the te...

Re: EEStor says something - but not too much

wish I could get people to give me $1.3M. I'm sure I'd be more deserving. I'd even promise a minimum 50% return!

Re: How to defeat ISIL

The problem about allowing voting only to those with given status (and land-owner is historically what we had in the UK before universal franchise) is that the low-status have no stake in decision-making and become a sub-class. Such systems can be stable and work (consider slaves in Rome) but we don...

Re: LENR Is Real

It wasn't an explosion. It was a constant power reactor run at Rowan for 2+ years, the papers for which were all linked in the BPL thread here. Obviously they had a fantastical amount of heat generated. The question is whether it was an Ni reaction or a LENR reaction. Those who don't accept the evi...

Re: LENR Is Real

MFMP, to be fair, understand that 1% more measured energy out than in represents a typical null result and not a sign of LENR. Unfortunately not all in the LENR field are so enlightened.

Re: LENR Is Real

The experimental lacks in typical LENR stuff are shown by MFMP, who are busy replicating what they think are the strongest LENR experiments. And have never yet found a positive above experimental error! I'm lost as to whom is MFMP. I don't think though, that this statement is true of the BLP stuff,...

Re: LENR Is Real

The Chinese scientists are in no danger of being hounded out of science for working on LENR. The universities will not lose funding or reputation or prestige for employing these researchers. These scientists will submit their results freely to the top Chinese science publications confident that the...

Re: How to defeat ISIL

Meritocracy isn't based necessarily on what you're calling "consistency". The notion goes back to ancient China and Confucius, and is extremely closely related to Plato's Republic upon which our society is actually based. We call it "Democracy" but we only vote for the voters. T...

Re: How to defeat ISIL

I personally favor a system that merely requires voters to be taxpayers without regard to their gender. If you are a contributing member to the upkeep of the government, then you ought to have a say in how that government is constituted. If you are not, you ought not. Let's be consistent: make the ...

Re: LENR Is Real

The Chinese are quite capable of being stupid, as is anyone, but notice in this case how clever (scammy clever) is Rossi. What he says lends apparent credibility to his enterprize but it means nothing and implies no necessary connection. If there had been any, I'm quite sure Rossi, never slow to blo...

http://rt.com/uk/147713-sharialaw-uk-legal/ This raised some fuss when it was first proposed, some time ago. Personally I am strongly against what it seems to be saying.

Re: LENR Is Real

What continues to amaze me is that such a transparent idiot as Rossi can develop and hold (in part) such a loyal following. You need only read a few of his continual blog posts to the converted to smell a rat. Were I a genuine LENR researcher I'd be very upset. It says something about the field tha...

Re: How to defeat ISIL

Biology can only go so far. Maybe it can program a fear of snakes - but if you think about how DNA influences brain development it is very difficult to build in specifics based on vision. Maybe fear of snakes is learnt. Weak evidence for its being in primates innate: http://whyevolutionistrue.wordpr...
