  • Yup. The fire department, at least, would like to know what gas is in a bottle like this if they have to enter the premises during an emergency.


    Nothing is right with this photo though! Here is a pressurized gas cylinder that is supported by a single twist of wire placed below its centre of gravity. That is dangerous. That is nuts.

    And this sort of rule regurgitation is precisely why reductionst teaching and dutiful student mentalities/banalities are the death of inventive science. "Hell, there are no rules here - we're trying to accomplish something." - Thomas A. Edison

  • Zeus46 "I guess that might be a kind of rage-quitting, although it’s hardly an archetypal example... It basically means leaving somewhere in a huff, because you can’t handle the rules. It’s not exactly a mark of maturity."


    Point is that you or I might get mad for a good reason. Don't deny or belittle my anger. SOT follows his or her own rules, certainly not mine.


    Which rules are you speaking of?


    Make (someone or something) seem unimportant.


    By the way... My anger is quite mature. Is yours?


    Taking a 'walk around the block' is in fact an archetypal example of 'rage quitting'. Better than (reactive) violence as it gives one a moment to collect their responsive thoughts/actions/discourse (for deeds of planned violence or non-violence). Please consider this. My vow of non-violence is not a trivial matter. Don't 'dumb me down'.


    Archetypal meaning. Dumb it Down.

    Very typical of a certain kind of person or thing.

    Definitions of words we use are important, NO?


    vi·o·late

    treat (something sacred) with irreverence or disrespect.

    break or fail to comply with (a rule or formal agreement).

    fail to respect (someone's peace, privacy, or rights).


    The word volatile is much more energetic.

    (of a substance) easily evaporated at normal temperatures.

    Liable to change rapidly and unpredictably, especially for the worse.

    Characterized by or subject to rapid or unexpected change, as seen in... 'A volatile market'.

    A 'thoughtful experiment'.

    Witnessing a man violating his mother... One might just kill him! Or restrain and forgive him. This makes my heart and head hurt, NO?

    We have the claims of seven_of_twenty

    Which are weightier?

  • Thomas A. Edison never headed a lab? Who knew!


    You are absolutely correct. I meant that it is pretty obvious that Mr. George has never headed a lab.


    You joke around and play the fool Mr. Smith, but I think you should be wary of Russ George. You should have results checked independently before believing them.

  • SOT - seven_of_twenty Member since April 3rd 2018... Is this LENR Forum data on fact or fictional? How much 'weight' does seven of twenty deserve/hold here? According to me... Not much. Or as a caveat, perhaps SOT is as good as Martin Fleischmann? NOT rhymes with SOT.

    If you think I'm a fool, then you are being foolish. I build the equipment, you think I don't know how this stuff works? Russ is a good friend, and we work very closely together, there are no tricks here. And calling me 'Mr Smith' adds no gravitas to your intention to discredit him - and by association me.

    My argument is based on facts and history, not claims. When it's facts vs claims and they disagree, facts should be preferred. By thinking people instead of believer people anyway.

    Most of GBG's rants seem incoherent and making no sense. With supporters like that, GEC doesn't need detractors or skeptics. Or maybe we have some probate action in process on this forum that I was unaware about? Know of any currently woodworker ? BTW, did you know your screen name starts with "WOO"? As in WOOOOoooooooooooooooooohoo!

  • https://depositphotos.com/4144…color-identification.html

    Red top with letter N = "flammable" or "flamable mixture".


    Apparently the N marking is optional.

    The letter N means that the cylinder is following the "new" European standard for gas cylinder color identification, rather than the old pre-1997 one.

    It might only have been intended for a transition period when there would still be a lot of cylinders around using the old color codes.

  • I had a look at this blog post, and I was surprised to read that "many scientists" are suggesting the explanation for Huygens synchronicity "will be found in the strange entanglement of matter. Einstein’s spooky action at a distance".
    I would be curious to hear who these scientists are, as this sounds like a rather extraordinary claim.


    I have been reading a number of Mr George's blog posts. In my opinion they mostly contain poetical musings rather than serious scientific thoughts. There is nothing wrong with this as long as you know what to expect.

  • Nothing is right with this photo though! Here is a pressurized gas cylinder that is supported by a single twist of wire placed below its centre of gravity. That is dangerous. That is nuts.

    Yes, that is insane. At the airport where I work, similar tanks of nitrogen are used to inflate aircraft tires. They are supposed to be secured with chains. I heard that years ago, an unsecured one toppled over. The valve at the top hit something and broke off. The tank took off like a rocket and went through a couple of walls. Fortunately, no one was hurt.


    And this sort of rule regurgitation is precisely why reductionst teaching and dutiful student mentalities/banalities are the death of inventive science.

    That attitude may kill someone. "This sort of rule" is in place for good reasons.

  • It is hard to decide who is most delusional, Adrian: you or Sam. But at least he seems like a nice person. You, on the other hand, are a nasty piece of work who can't write two sentences without insulting someone. It's a pleasure not knowing you.

    Adrian and me have a strong opinion for Rossi the

    same as most on this thread have a strong

    opinion against Rossi.

    A nasty piece of work he is not.

    Adrian and I think you have it wrong about Rossi technology.

    Hopefully we will know who has called it right soon and move on from there

    Einstein's "Spooky Action at a Distance" Paradox Older Than Thought ...

    https://www.technologyreview.c…on-at-a-distance-paradox-...

    Mar 8, 2012 - Einstein’s famous critique of quantum mechanics first emerged in 1930, five years earlier than thought, according to a new analysis of his work. ... Einstein’s phrase “Spooky Action at a Distance”


    MIT Technology Review


    Maybe we might consider gravity, or our lack of understanding about it, in this subject matter? OR NOT?


    Einstein’s phrase “spooky action at a distance” has become synonymous with one of the most famous episodes in the history of physics—his battle with Bohr in the 1930s over the completeness of quantum mechanics.


    Einstein’s weapons in this battle were thought experiments that he designed to highlight what he believed were the inadequacies of the new theory.


    The most famous of these is the EPR paradox, announced in 1935 and named after its inventors Einstein, Boris Podolsky, and Nathan Rosen.


    It involves a pair of particles linked by the strange quantum property of entanglement (a word coined much later). Entanglement occurs when two particles are so deeply linked that they share the same existence. In the language of quantum mechanics, they are described by the same mathematical relation known as a wavefunction.


    Entanglement arises naturally when two particles are created at the same point and instant in space, for example.


    Entangled particles can become widely separated in space. But even so, the mathematics implies that a measurement on one immediately influences the other, regardless of the distance between them.


    Einstein and co pointed out that according to special relativity, this was impossible and therefore, quantum mechanics must be wrong, or at least incomplete. Einstein famously called it spooky action at a distance.


    The EPR paradox stumped Bohr and was not resolved until 1964, long after Einstein’s death. CERN physicist John Bell resolved it by thinking of entanglement as an an entirely new kind of phenomenon, which he termed “nonlocal.”


    The basic idea here is to think about the transfer of information. Entanglement allows one particle to instantaneously influence another but not in a way that allows classical information to travel faster than light. This resolved the paradox with special relativity but left much of the mystery intact. These days, the curious nature of entanglement is the subject of intense focus in labs around the world.


    But that doesn’t tell the full story...

  • "Entangled particles can become widely separated in space. But even so, the mathematics implies that a measurement on one immediately influences the other, regardless of the distance between them."


    This means something is being exchanged between them at speeds in extreme excess of the speed of light. Gaining an understanding of these particles, the aetheric environment they create, the pressures they produce, how they come together in the form of vortexes to produce matter, and how they can be manipulated to allow for everything we've ever witnessed in science fiction is what will take humanity to the stars.

  • JedRothwellMy intent is to slaughter you... Only because you lie.

    Do your worst.

    Remove all papers by Boss and Forsley from the LENR'CANR website.

    Why would I do that?? What's with you? Why do you care whether there are papers by Boss and Forsley at LENR-CANR.org? More to the point, why would I care what you think?


    Frankly, you seem kind of crazy, or drunk.

  • Goble is permanently banned for obvious reasons. I take the blame for encouraging him to actively participate here. My apologies to those he insulted. He has some skills that I thought would add value to LF, and unfortunately the negatives far outweighed his positives.


    If any of you find one of his posts particularly offensive, please give the post number and I will delete it.

  • Perhaps he was inebriated? If so, I suppose you should let him back in when he sobers up.


    Jed,


    I have PWI (posted while intoxicated) many a time. Having one right now thank you! MY was infamous for drinking Rum and posting. Probably still does. Nothing wrong with that BTW. What matters is not what influence one is under when posting, but the value of their contribution to the good of the field, and LF. Greg's value in digging into a story though, was simply outweighed by his edginess, and tendency to attack others with little, to no provocation.


    There were many other things than that one threatening post to you, although that alone justified a ban.
