Sounds more like believing what you choose to believe, rather than agreeing or disagreeing.

Which statement is it that you disagree with, and why?

Re: Actual Polywell News!

Seven wolftrons trapping a moosion: A muon can catch two heavier deuteron nucleii, but they are still within an order of magnitude, and are going about the same, slow, speed. A wolf catching a moose that is only three times as heavy as it, and running at the same speed, is one thing. An electron tr...

Re: Actual Polywell News!

There are many ways in which neutrons could have been produced in short discharges in previous Polywell designs (and that's not even counting how the near-statistically-insignificant neutron detection rates could have been jeopardised). Whatever the neutron detection rates of past, or present, Polyw...

Re: Actual Polywell News!

No-one's ever argued a Polywell can't trap electrons. ...So what? Where's the evidence that electrons can trap ions? That's what is important. But that is like trying to anchor a boat with a tooth-pick. It makes it all the more difficult to interpret ANY claims on 'confinement' in a Polywell... does...

Re: Extreme fuel efficency competetion nets 3587 mpg

People who know better than the reality of Prius (with its electric 'defeat' device to overcome the emissions tests) and are NOT impressed by it are, instead, typically more impressed by the best of european diesels. One can BUY this car in the shops right now - quite a good deal on at the moment fo...

Re: UK Culham Fusion visit - what questions to ask?

What would be other / sharper / better questions to ask? Print this out and read it, word for word; "You have published papers saying that you've shown how ICRH and neutral beam heating work together better that either one on its own. What is your argument to say that you are SURE this is nothing t...

Re: Rossi USPTO patent progress.

The way patents are supposed to work, a standard apparently not well upheld these days, the patent application must include sufficient detail for a practitioner of the art to implement. This is called 'enablement' in the USPTO's (and most english speaking IPO's) lingo. If a patent application is re...

Re: Rossi USPTO patent progress.

Chris, you seem to be the expert here. What do you make of this application? Given the lack of detail, it's sure to be rejected. So what's the point in filing? It's hopeless. Every one-bit dreamer with a half-baked idea wants to throw it towards USPTO in the hope they will strike it lucky and incan...

Re: What Our Mandarins think of the "little people"

The piece seems to be quite justified. Self-justifying, in fact. There is only one thing a creative would shudder at, and that is the one about being paid less. Unfortunately, it is probably true, but not necessarily for the reasons given. As it says, fairness is about dealing with people in the way...

This also means the microorganisms that evade the immune system in humans won't in mice, so the diseases may look alike, but are completely different, on the level of antiviral software differences.

Re: Naked Women Against Islamism

The problem with this photojournalism appears to be that the journalists have taken a woefully inadequate number of photos to cover the events properly. :D The issue with the protest itself is that if men joined them, naked from the waist down with 'it's my body' written on their cocks, and stood be...

Nearly right, but for the wrong reasons; it'll take 600 years to reach the 20th century of the solar Hijri calendar, or 500 in the tabular Islamic calendar.
