    Will ITER succeed? Good question. But you should believe that it exists. We know where it is. You can go visit it. You can talk to people who work on it. You can apply for a job to work on it.

    Try any of that with Rossi’s…

    Sam, for Rossi’s sake, I hope that you and his other remaining devotees order at least a few thousand lamps each. Otherwise, he’ll never get his million orders. Hope you have the cash on hand.

    I have not seen a conclusive DIS-proof of the eCat and successors.

    You also have not seen a conclusive disproof of unicorns, Bigfoot, and the tooth fairy. Furthermore, you never will.

    Perhaps you should consider taking a course in logic.

    Let’s not get tangled up in semantics. Surely you know that what I meant were claims that cannot be accounted for by mainstream physics. That is not intended to imply that mainstream physics is complete or correct. Touchy touchy.

    mjtrac: Setting aside the issue of the validity of various claims that transcend the bounds of mainstream physics, it is not appropriate to lump them all together and describe distinguishing among them as “sorting out algorithms”. There is no…

    Rossi does not claim to be working with LENR and I doubt that LENR researchers consider Rossi to be a colleague. Leaving the snark aside, as you say, whatever it is that Rossi claims to be doing, it is not LENR.

    What field do you think Rossi’s efforts are in? (Also a real question.)

    Speaking as one of those “dedicated skeptics”, I lost any interest in Rossi many years ago. What has kept me tuning in from time to time is people like you. I simply cannot comprehend how anyone could possibly take Rossi…

    The real miracle of Rossi: for ten years, Rossi has had numerous partners, customers, employees, and certificators (sic) and not a single one of them has ever come out and said “yeah, I did that.” Intelligence agencies around the world must be…

    Let’s pretend Rossi’s latest bit of nonsense actually works and he has made a miracle lamp (no genie involved.). Let’s see: a typical LED bulb draws about 10 watts. Let’s say it runs 10 hours a day. That’s a kWh every ten…

    The problem with Rossi’s business model is that he only provides his miraculous products to customers who promise to never reveal they are customers under any circumstances. This seems like a limited market.

    One has to be impressed by the determination and loyalty of Rossi followers. The only “news” about Rossi has been his blog posts for two-and-a-half years. He isn’t even in the revolutionary energy business anymore. He’s promising lightbulbs. …
