    Ok Sam, how about if you get real for a moment, just for a change of pace. At some point, your con man hero is going to release a photograph of something or other that he says is an EcatSKL. Perhaps it is a corn husker, a breast pump, a car horn, or…

    One can hardly wait for the unveiling of a photo that will establish without a doubt that somebody took a photograph of something. Despite the fact that said photo will have absolutely no additional significance, our local bamboozled squad will be…

    I agree, if you are on board with Rossi now, I can't think of anything short of he himself announcing he was a fraud that would change your belief. Were I you, I would not bother reading anything except JONP.
  • Zephir is tirelessly dedicated to his false narrative. You are not going to deter him with facts or logic. The only interesting thing about him is trying to guess his agenda, but that isn’t really all that interesting either.

    No, they do not increase net fossil fuel consumption. Fossil fuel consumption, especially coal, is declining rapidly in the first world. What you are saying is nonsense. It is like claiming that nuclear power increases the use of…

    Amazing. As is the case for every aspect of the Rossi circus, there is zero evidence for any of the qualities you ascribe to Rossi. It is all in your head. But I guess that should have been obvious. I keep expecting one of the…

    @MarkU: Sam12 has never been willing to explain. Maybe you will. What possible reason could you have for believing Rossi is not a co man with nothing of any value? It would be fascinating to know.

    Year after year I continue to be astounded that the remaining souls who still think Rossi is anything other than a total fraud have no problem with the fact that his global operations leave no trace in real or virtual space. Rossiplanet is the most…

    “Are these people truly this gullible or greedy, or do they just want so badly to believe it is true, that they ignore all the obvious telltale signs of a con”.

    One or all of the above, no doubt.

    You couldn’t get the context because I inadvertently addressed the comment to you instead of Bob#2, to whom it was actually intended. Sorry about that.

    As usual, what you say is simply false.
  • It is a common mistake to think of a car as an investment. It is nothing of the kind. Economically, it just a depreciating asset. That being said, if the only consideration is utilitarian, then a cheap car and probably a used one at that makes the most…
  • (Quote from Dr Richard)

    Out of curiosity, if you decide to get a new car, will you buy a Chevy Versa or a Nissan Spark for $15,000? I doubt it. Those are among the cheapest cars you could buy but most people don’t buy the cheapest cars. In the US,…
  • “You are in love with fantasy versions of thermodynamics, economics and engineering. They seem to be inspired by the kind of ignorant, right-wing nonsense Trump spouts about coal versus wind energy. You distort the facts, and you ignore them, and you…

    No, it isn't in this case. It is a reflection of the number of units manufactured. With mass production, the more you make, the cheaper they are. Also, it is a reflection of the history of the product. Gasoline cars have been…
  • (Quote from Dr Richard)

    Once again, a polemic of demonstrably false claims. The subject of the emissions associated with the manufacturing and operation of electric cars has been extensively researched and reported on and your statement that they use the…
  • Constant conjunction is often hard to find in the real world. In many instances, we are stuck with probabilities. B usually or even almost always follows A, but there are exceptions. We generally don’t then conclude that the causality is no longer…
  • Neither I, David Hume, or pretty much anyone else would disagree. What’s your point?
  • Jed, I'm not sure what it is you are arguing about. Hume had lots of profound ideas about causality back there in the 18th century. What we call correlation he referred to as "constant conjunction" and he would have had no problem with Tyler Vigen's…

    Glad to hear it. Unfortunately, there appear to be some people who are more interested in being right.
