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 that...

Re: LENR Is Real

Thanks for pointing this out! The claimed COP is 6 or 10 or whatever, which means that if the reaction was temperature sensitive altering 10% or so of the total power dissipated would not control it. Whereas... Just turning up or down cooling water flow rate would control it providing more than 50% ...

Re: How to defeat ISIL

Indeed. Your morality is not mine, and would correspond to what I've called prejudice. Spirituality - the understanding that there is meaning to life and a sense of connectedness - those things are all encompassed within my rules. But worship of an omniscient being? Nope. You are on rather particula...

Re: How to defeat ISIL

I don't need a Book to tell me what is right and what is wrong. You do need a book to teach you right from wrong and just because you now hold some commitments to things you may or may not be able to rationalize as correct, does not mean you'd have gotten there on your own. And besides, you're list...

Re: How to defeat ISIL

A child is never a consenting adult...because a child is not... an... adult. Says who? Says the law? What law? Who made it? Why should it hold? Again, I point out the obvious. HOMOSEXUALITY was ILLEGAL. Homosexuals could not consent because they were legally "Non compos mentis". Who said ...

Re: How to defeat ISIL

I don't need a Book to tell me what is right and what is wrong. And I've seen enough of the world and its horrors to tell the difference between prejudice and badness. OK - I may get this wrong from time to time but on reflection I'll get it. Dishonesty. Wrong, but we all know cases where giving unw...

Re: LENR Is Real

Heating a tub of water would work great to measure heat production, except for the heat capacity of the other components. Calibration with a resistive heater could help there. The procedure I recall from many years ago involves establishing a steady flow of water and measuring temperature both befo...

Re: LENR Is Real

Maybe you should check the report? The issue is that due to water flow measurement inaccuracies variable flow rates with overall flow 0 can spoof non-zero flow rates. Which means that without care COP infinity can be spoofed. DGT did not allow the level of inspection needed to determine whether they...

Re: LENR Is Real

There are two sides to every story. In terms of this DGT Europe guy, I don't trust his account or his take on things because he has gone into the LENR business himself. It is natural for the various potential venders’ of LENR reactors to bad mouth each other. This new guy is just doing what they al...

Re: LENR Is Real

Defkalion Green Technologies DGT is in the best position to release a product in the short term. Their system is designed from day one to be controllable and it is more powerful than Rossi’s system with a potential for a higher COP. But their intent to produce an in home power unit is born out of a...

Re: How to defeat ISIL

who are Progs? The argument for or against military intervention seems pretty evenly split between right and left wing. And my POV is that whether or not to intervene is seldom simple. There are circumstances in which it is obvious you stay out. That is not the case here with ISIS since pretty well ...

Re: How to defeat ISIL

Well - Obama is a consensus-builder. He wants to be friends with anyone he can be. That is not always the right policy - but it is also not always the wrong one. And the "they are hostile so let us be more hostile back" policy is also not always right. Good diplomacy between countries need...

Re: LENR Is Real

OK - progress. Surface magnon polaritons as defined above - yes I understand what they are and they do exist. I have however no idea why you think these have any connection with LENR - you had better enlighten me. Tom, I am trying to understand in detail, how the experimental results that have been...

Re: How to defeat ISIL

TC, open your mind a crack. What happened after the low cost Iraq war? how many trillions of dollars, lives, collateral maiming, psychological damage, and the problem has escalated to include all of the Middle East. That is the answer to "Then what?" for the Iraq war (police action). So w...
