    I just started reading a book on anti-gravity, I can't put it down.:)

    Reminds me of Cold Fusion.

    I miss Wayne. I had very nice email exchange with him a few months before he passed.

    Cold Fusion was de-bunked a looong time ago but there are some very serious scientific studies being undertaken to see if maybe it really could be used as source of energy. The DARPA guys are looking at it right now as are several independent labs.

    Here is a little article.

    I'm sure early work in fission wasn't well-received by the established scientific minds of the time, but eventually laboratory work proved it occurred and measured the incredible amounts of energy released. The journey from the discovery of fission to a functional nuclear power plant (or weapon) took many years and a lot of engineering, but without the initial research, I don't think there would have been any interest.

    I do agree that there has to be more than theory. If you can't measure it, it doesn't exist.

    I once worked with a guy who was convinced that you could run a gasoline engine on hydrogen and this could be extracted from water. There was a video which "proved" this. The electrolysis unit ran from a huge alternator in a Dodge pickup parked nearby. Then the experimenter ran a Yugo with the "Brown's gas" created by the electrolysis.

    I tried to explain that the energy required to generate the gas from water would be far greater than the resulting energy from combustion, and that there was no way the large alternator could be powered by the Yugo engine, but he wasn't having any of this argument. He was a "believer".

    Out of curiosity, I looked up Vasant Corporation and I found this link -

    which is titled -
    Assessment of Earth primates and in particular the species homo sapien:​

    In my opinion, that page is sufficient to explain everything.

    I think I'll go back to soldering parts on my K1 boards.

    You might want to research project "Tic-Toc" from the mid-1960s during the height of the Vietnam War. Below is a photo of the now defunct "Time Tunnel" used during the '60s.:D

    Yeah. Those damned white-haired guys. Always a suspicious lot. What the hell have they ever really done, anyway?

    Oh, wait . . .

    The Theory of Relativity and Quantum Physics
    Newtonian Physics
    Maxwell's and Gauss's equations
    Riemann Theory of Prime Numbers
    The Ten Commandments
    The Declaration of Independence
    Western civilization in general, and everything you've ever learned.

    At least you didn't say "white men in lab coats." You stuck "hair" in there.

    lol. Of which I have very little. At least it's not white yet.
