Rossi-Blog Comment Discussion

  • Sam, besides perfection, another divine attribute of IO would be omniscience, to know all the words I have ever spoken. It brightened my day to know we are Observed by such a Being. I think. Wait ...


    Speaking of attributes, I hope you and others had a good smile at the posts of Anonymous on Rossi's blog. He's trying to win the contest by correctly guessing the attributes of the Ecat SKL. But in his zeal to win he risks disqualification by offering two guesses!

    Mr Rossi,

    here are the SKL data: Electric power 0, efficiency 0%, cube or whatever size 0, weight 0, existence 0

    Dr Rossi:

    here is my estimation:

    Power: peanuts

    size: watermelon

    efficiency: bananas

    weight: 2 pees

  • Rossi worshippers: I am far from perfect and not remotely omniscient. What I am is as much as possible grounded in reality and not living in a fantasy world unfettered by facts and evidence. Try it some time. It could change your life. Or keep hiding in your weird little cult. Maybe it’s the best you can do.

  • This whole Rossi blog guessing game of the attributes of a non-existent device is complete idiocy. How anyone cannot read that blog and immediately know these are a bunch or morons is beyond me.

    Why aren't they playing a guessing game like "Where in the world is Rossi SanDiego".

    The only real evidence we have is his lawyers insisting he is quarantined in Milan, and Rossi forcefully saying that is not true.

  • PfD, if I'm understanding correctly, in time we will see the Ecat SKL device on video, demoed. That video will presumably include some people who were witness to the demo.

    So the question is not whether the device exists, it is whether it actually performs as Rossi has indicated and as the video will presumably show.


    What will be interesting to see is if the demo will be sufficiently persuasive ; persuasive enough to keep tentative believers from abandoning ship, as more than a few are (I suspect) are about to do so. People have only so much patience.

      Dear Andrea,

      this is a simple wish to you, your team, the team of the testing agency, as well as all the clients who have their own team members present:

      Stay well, be healthy.

      Respectfully,

      Mason

      Hi, Mr. Rossi.

      You said, that Your reference of measuring energy is “amount of information per unit space time”.

      Do You reference both directions ( input and output ) with the same definition of energy ?

      Regards

      Buck

      THx for the quick reply.

      Now it is clear, how You measure netto win.

      Your conclusions of Yur measurement are based on a very common effect, which is called “Dunning Kruger Effect”.

      You can read about it.

      Regards

      Buck

      Buck:

      You did not understand my comments. I am talking of definition of Energy in general, not of measurements of the energy consumed and the energy generated by the Ecat ! The theoretical concept of the definition of Energy is one thing, the measurement of Wh consumed and generated by an apparatus are a totally different issue. You correctly cite the Dunning Kruger Effect, but your text gives evidence that such psychological effect is referred to you: the matter of the fact is that you really have not been able to understand what I wrote while, along the Dunning Kruger Effect, at the same time you are not able to recognize this and introject in others your different way to be intelligent.

      Warm Regards,

      A.R.

      ps. My guess:

      – Electrical Power Output: 1 kiloWatt

      – Conversion Efficiency: 85%

      – Dimensions: 90x90x90 mm

      – Unit weight (excluding the control unit): 95 grams

    "An apparatus for heating fluid includes a tank for holding fluid to be heated, and a fuel wafer in fluid communication with the fluid. The fuel wafer includes a fuel mixture including reagents and a catalyst, and an electrical resistor or other heat source in thermal communication with the fuel mixture and the catalyst."

    It looks (see patent) like a brain exercise only! It uses classic physics known not to work for fusion and does not explain what will happen with the nice neutron flux..what is a no go!


    The description (patent) is superficial only and claims a vacuum, of 10e-5 torr is needed. Thus only 10e13 particles are present.... what is bare nonsense for a fusion device as e.g. if d+d goes to 3-H -H this just doubles the pressure or the opposite in the d+d --> 3-He +n case here we are not even talking about heating to Millions of degrees. This density fluctuations is what causes the instabilities seen in any kinetic fusion reactor that cannot be handled by electronics providing a magnetic containment.


    This is a true Rossi like patent!
