Is this what the MagGrid is? When Bussard states he is: turning on the MagGrid, does this mean he is switching on the voltage drop between the rings and the cage? The "magrid" is short for "magnatic grid" - the magnets protecting the grid from collision and the grid itself. The ...

Well, we've got 4 million fewer employed now than when Obummer took office. We've got much higher cost of living than when QE started, exactly as could be predicted by Friedman. He didn't get us out of the depression started by the DOJ Microsoft judgement collapsing the dot-com bubble. But - no gove...

A lot of crap passes peer review, and is pickecd up after publishing as crap and retracted. Peer review looks mostly at form, was the experiment attempted scientifically, was the mathematics properly formulated? It often does not go into the question of whether the experiment was sound, or whether t...

It is a horrid fallacy, and one touted by the left and right, that WWII ended the great depression.
The depression did not end until '47 - after the wartime limits were removed, and production returned to things people wanted, rather than being wasted on blowing other peoples things up.

I am an independent person, I believe in personal liberty, minimal government and personal responsibility. Being on Disability, which I have drawn out about what I paid in after only 5 years, I feel frustrated. If I didn't have the disability, I'd be homeless again, which is not fun. I can claim all...

As far as it goes, Cs137 production from U233 is less than from U235 - but not significantly less. But, by being in liquid phase to start, the Xe137 precursor to Cs137 will bubble out while liquid, and then decay in the atmospheric chamber, not in the fuel, so we should see cs137 concentrations of a...

Cold fusion died with the majority of the scientific community because it could never be reliably duplicated and had no workable theory. Well... not quite. Cold Fusion suffered badly from the perception that Pons & Fleishman were not rigorous or honest. The experiments showed fairly quickly (by...

G=C800:5, anyone?


Um... that's an "execute at address" command.

The patriot anti-missile system was deployed first in 1990; the first laser anti-missile systems in 1994. We have railguns at deployment level. What part of SDI was crazy?

Your appeal to authority is pointless. Woodward isn't a "world renowned physicist" - he's a kook physicist who most physicists ignore, working on an obscure and silly thing. I assume most physicists haven't bothered with checking his results because they haven't seen anything worth double-...

I know of no sensitive balance designed for a jiggling load.
There are mass flow meters designed for a fast changes in mass flow of a stream, but Woodward's device is not that.

Woodward's result is most likely a harmonic effect with the spring constants in the mechanism of the balance.

In nuclear energy calculations, energy transfer must happen from interactions. When you are talking about negative ions at one velocity transferring energy to electrons at another velocity, you have coulomb interactions. Imagine a single H+ ion passing through a cloud of e-; furthermore, assume that...

So, no matter how he makes it move, its still a spindizzy dean drive.

And the only reason any "effect" is seen is because his instruments are not up to dealing with the fluctuations. The Woodward "results" i have seen are all in the range of instrument error.

It has been my experience that, while laid back, most pot smokers are fairly industrious. The "lazy bum pot smoker" stereotype is not the norm, but a lot of lazy bums smoke pot, because it lets them continue to be relaxed even though their life is shit and they really should be dissatisfie...
