Again: remember that people are taking MONEY to come up with these absurd speculations.


I don't fault the guy for getting paid. If some university wanted to write me a check fro $100K to write a thesis on how humans evolved from rats, who in turn realized humans were dumb so some of them went back to being rats (Which is true), I would. And I would not feel bad at all for taking the check.

The problem is that people are paying for this tripe. Back to the check I hope to one day receive. After receiving the check and publishing the book, I would slap the guy upside the head for buying into the load of crap. Unless he was interested in a sequel
Magic is doing improbable things with odd items that, under normal circumstances, would be unnessecary and quite often undesirable.

We could say the cost of MetGlas cores and the tooling up to produce full sized versions won't hit economy of scale without the type of funding Bearden is talking about, is what is holding this back. Those cores are beyond what the average tinkerer has to lay out in cost. Honeywell may be doing us all a favor until there is an explanation as to exactly where the electricity comes from. It would be a real bummer to explain it away as entanglement, and later find out it pulls from the firing of neurons....Our neurons.

Matter can neither be created nor destroyed. That juice comes from somewhere.

Well what they are trying to say is the electrical increase from a small amount of input to a much larger output comes from a magnet and its fields. The Dept of Energy hosted this information at one time.

The wiki is actually wrong in that the device ...Does... require a steady electrical input to receive an amplified output with no drop in strength or intensity.

But hey. this is The ULTIMATE Wacky give me a break Theory of all time! thread.

Uh excuse me? Mandrake01 used the term 'gist'. I linked the word 'grist' to it as in 'grist for the conversation'...thus giving it relevance and being pertinent.
So what's with the 'Sorry"?


My bad. I thought you were complaining that I'd made light of the thread.
"There's no time to lose," I heard her say.
"Catch your dreams before they slip away."
"Dying all the time, lose your dreams and you could lose your mind.
Ain't life unkind?"

Wrong!! You're thinking of Schrodinger's wildfowl.

I'm the hiphopapotamus, my rhymes are bottomless, sounds a little preposterous, spewing from my esophagus.
But, my ryhmes are so potent that during this small segment, I've made all the women in the last three threads pregnant.

Good point. Maybe I'm just jealous.

Is my answer supposed to be in the form of a question? Are questions just answers in disguise? If I answer a question with another question, has the first question really been answered yet?

The postulation that things change every time we look at them is preposterous. They should have tried looking at my paycheck.

Marching forward, from the sublime to the ridiculous.
Will you walk into my parlour? said the Spider to the Fly,
Tis the prettiest little parlour that ever you did spy;
The way into my parlour is up a winding stair,
And I've a many curious things to show when you are there.

Oh no, no, said the little Fly, to ask me is in vain,
For who goes up your winding stair
-can ne'er come down again.
