Re: LENR Is Real

That invalidates the isotopic as evidence of nuclear effects, as it injects enough doubt. It also amazes me that the test team would allow this since ongoing critique of Rossi's machines has been his hands-on involvement with each test or demo. To accept the last test as proof of something is not s...

Re: They Posed A Threat - Good Shoot

Although the man fled the building wearing nothing but his boxer shorts, the sergeant fired upon the man because he believed that the man had a weapon when he pointed arm towards the sergeant. According to the report, “[n]o other officers at the scene reported seeing [the man] point anything at the...

Re: crazy (?) space launch idea, shotput sling.

The trouble I see is with what might be meant by ". . .the launcher spins up, end over end, and deploys the payload at the end of a sling." What do you mean by this or in what way does the launcher spin up? Where does that energy come from? What is one pushing off? While you could do this, spin up a...

Re: ITER under attack

I must have had a senior moment and recalled the DOE energy budget is for more than $10B--that's not the fusion budget so I stand corrected. Last year's budget can be found here: http://energy.gov/sites/prod/files/2014/04/f14/15Highlights%20%281%29.pdf Page 8 has the breakdown. Note "Total Energy Pr...

Re: LENR Is Real

I grew up working in my father's automotive garage from age 9, and I can tell you that yes indeed, there is a great deal you can learn and diagnose with a stethoscope. The trouble here however, is that we're looking for warrant for belief, and this is not the time to note the arcane art of diagnosis...

Re: They Posed A Threat - Good Shoot

. . .And they were of course shot after they had stopped fleeing, trapped in the car apparently unarmed. I am just responding to the general case about justifiable use of lethal force. If you're going to judge the cop as justified or unjustified, you do indeed need to know the law (something no one...

Re: They Posed A Threat - Good Shoot

Are you two actually arguing that when people are being chased by the police for 20 minutes and driving more than 100 MPH, the police should not be able to use lethal force? Forget the car backfiring. We have no idea what reason the police were chasing these criminals for. The hopeless piece of pseu...

Re: ITER under attack

Maybe I'm reading the chart wrong, but it appears to be bullshit propaganda. It says actual funding for fusion is less than $1B/year when it is more than $10B. How would you account for that discrepancy? DOE's budget for science and engineering is larger than NASA's budget for human spaceflight, and...

Re: They Posed A Threat - Good Shoot

If you decide to flee the police and evade them for more than 20 minutes, at speeds in excess of 100MPH, you have surrendered your right to life. By placing the lives of innocent citizens at risk, you have earned a bullet. I have no sympathy for criminals, doing crime when they get shot the way this...

Re: Latest drug addict loons.

The WOD created the cartels. Do you just pull this stuff out of your asshole and think it doesn't smell like shyt? I don't think you get that no one believes you. I'm shocked even you could possible believe you. You prove you have no credibility when you make statements like this. The Sinaloan clan...

Re: ITER under attack

I'm not sure why you would say fusion is under-funded, if by that what you're doing is suggesting DOE spends too much money on other things. That is true. most of their money goes to nuclear security, and this is because we don't use Yucca Mountain. More than 1/3 of DOE's budget is used to pay the h...

Re: Latest drug addict loons.

. . .Opium was legal in America, Britain, (I would assume the rest of Europe); and no "normal progression"; you can't make that go away with hand waving about lack of knowledge or different values than today, etc. That's simply not true. The drugs that are illegal all across the world today, are il...
