    “The Exotic Vacuum Object (EVO) is the soliton that produces the static chiral magnetic electroweak field that generates the LENR reaction“

    BINGO!!

    When thinking about the drain on the grid from electric car charging, it is important to be realistic. Yes, fully charging a Tesla might require 75 kWh of energy, but how often does one need to replenish the whole battery pack? Most people drive…

    Many of the most vocal critics of Tesla cars have never driven one and mostly really don’t like Elon Musk. Last I checked, what I think of Elon has no effect on the quality of my car, which is hands-down the best vehicle I have ever owned. But full…

    For the sake of accuracy, they don’t actually manufacture the Roadster at this time. They’ve only shown demos to date. Maybe next year.

    As for the luxury car classification, the base Model 3 can be ordered “off-menu” for about…

    “Tesla will remain a niche player for fancy sports cars."

    Tesla already has over a million cars on the road and is selling hundreds of thousands of cars per year, none of which are currently fancy sports cars. Ergo, your proclamation is demonstrably…

    Rossi’s remaining acolytes have amply demonstrated that facts play no role in their convictions. So any forthcoming disappointment will surely not matter. They will carry on as usual.

    So Sam is Nam North. Whoopty doo. Doesn’t get us any closer to understanding how a seemingly intelligent adult can believe a whole lot of unmitigated drivel. But then again, there is a lot of that going around in the world at large.

    The truth is, I…

    You wouldn’t refer to someone who doesn’t believe that there are pink flying unicorns (™ S_o_T) as a skeptic. You would just call them a normal, rational human being. The same applies to those who reject Rossi’s farce and for pretty much the…

    Defending irrational beliefs is hard work and makes people grumpy.

    Energy equivalents between batteries and gasoline are a fairly meaningless metric. The efficiency of the drive trains are very different. And 250 miles is commonplace. Tesla S now gets 400 miles.
  • Range in electric cars is just as variable as gas mileage in ICE cars. It depends on your driving style, the nature of the roads you take, and on the weather, among other things. We’ve driven Teslas for a couple of years and the range is in no way…

    The cumulative evidence that Rossi says anything to be believed is precisely the same as the cumulative evidence that a stopped clock correctly tells time.

    You claim there is “some evidence”. Don’t keep us in suspense. What evidence is there that the e-cat SKL actually exists?

    Very specific. Great stuff, other than the fact that there is not even a shred of evidence or corroboration for a single word of it. The Cult of Rossi is strictly a faith-based organization.

    Without a doubt.

    If I didn’t have a strong sense of humor, I wouldn’t waste my time following the Rossi saga. But I’ve always had a weakness for farce.
