Re: is this the Trump economy, or just reality?

They sacked a quarter of the administrative staff on my campus. Even though the principal investigator of my lab says my job is safe, a few months ago the funds that pay my salary were switched to a different account without his knowledge or approval, which has me a little on edge. This week the pre...

Re: Monumental

When you burn a log you get free energy…so to speak, but only because something else stored up the energy for you. The idea is to start a sustained fission reaction and feed it fuel, like starting a campfire. There is no mysterious free energy and fusion is perfectly in line with the realities of o...

Re: Monumental

The simple fact of the matter is…fusion will always require more energy to produce then it provides, because fusion is a process of energy consolidation. I think you're a little confused about why fusion is a worthwhile area of research. It's not "free energy" in the sense of thermodynamics, it's f...

Doubtful. There are a lot of brainwashed morons out there who can't get past their own cognitive dissonance to judge a person's character. Taking the moral high-ground is a waste with people who support parties so vehemently.
