  • One last post…
    To Team Google:

    Perhaps the most controlled cold fusion experiment I ever saw in my 24 years of following the field is that described by Edmund Storms in his ICCF8 presentation and reanalyzed by myself in my 2002 publication. That was a…

    Yeah so, this has reached the point of diminished returns. I'm gone, I hope permanently this time. Scientists who have actual questions will know how to reach me. If any of the rest of you do, I know how to use the 'D' key. Bye.

    So helpful. Thanks Shane. (P.S. Your asymmetry is showing.)

    JR: Yes. If these claims were true, and they became generally known, Shanahan would win a Nobel prize. I am not exaggerating.

    KS: Yes you are. One doesn’t win Nobel prizes by pointing out others’ mistakes. This is pure Jedism.

    JR: I cannot imagine a…

    @Shane So Shane, how should I respond 'politely' to this?

    (Quote from Wyttenbach)


    No, it shows you have no comprehension of how science determines experimental success.

    I don't recall Byrnes saying anything about not pursuing something. Got a quote on that?

    I think the whole point is that when you have a mundane explanation of an anomaly, it is bad science to ignore and/or denigrate that…

    Considering I read the whole thing and didn't see any confusion at all leads me to believe you read with pre-determined conclusions in mind. How about some examples of this 'confusion'?

    P.S. Can anyone point me to a science text or such that gives a precise definition of the apparently standardized term 'decent'?

    You have a very short memory and a very asymmetric one Shane.

    Actually it has not. Your understanding of what I suggest is, as usual, incorrect. In fact, I pointed out in my first paper that Ed got differences in calibration constants when he calibrated with the joule heater vs. when he…

    And you reply shows you have missed my point totally. OK, fine, go for it.

    And how do you know that is the case? Remember, you are talking about a ratio, which is computed by using two quantities, signal and noise.

    But in this case:

    (A) I took that problem and fleshed it out, math and all, to show exactly how and why it was a problem.

    (B) Given (A) above, are you positive there is no analogous problem in Mizuno's work? Personally, I find…

    A.) Not mistakes, detection limits
    B.) They've always been that way, you just fail to realize it apparently. Look here for ex. to start: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Matrix_(chemical_analysis)

    While I disagree with this, one thing can be said: There are potentially experiments that can disprove the relevance of my idea. Just calculate your error properly and show your signal is over 3 sigma.

    So what fits your definition of decent? Doing the same exact thing over and over? You are drawing a box so small nothing but your opinion fits in it.

    The crux of my CCS/ATER proposal is that the calorimeter is NOT spatially…

    Your proof of this? Remember, that all analytical techniques have detection limits, below which analytes cannot be detected. Best example of this I recall is Scott Little's RIFEX report. He ran some RIFEX beads for awhile and…

    Perhaps you should read the posts I pointed to. Your calls are there, and my answers. And you 'apologies' for calling me out inappropriately. However, there's an old American saying, derived from baseball, namely: "Three…
