Monitoring

January 30, 2016

Stats came through, will report tomorrow

January 30, 2016

The fourteen year record for gigabytes downloaded or printed pages, will be completely shattered, and we will get close to record highs for hits, distinct visits and page views.”

Sources such as Google Scholar and Scopus show of course that this ‘success’ is illusory because there is zero interest in citing the drivel. There are no longer any new citations even by Ron himself (which previously accounted for 99% of them) because he cannot get published even in well-known loony journals such as Progress in Physics … and his own journal failed ignominiously (apparently also alienating its publisher into the bargain).  Some time ago we set up (with Ron’s inadvertent aid) our own system for monitoring his ‘impact’; not only upon the scientific world as a whole, but also upon his own moronic sputniks. This subtle monitoring method is churning away quietly  in the background and, every day that passes, it becomes a greater potential embarrassment to Ron. When he finally detects it, or we divulge it, his complete isolation and irrelevance will be made glaringly obvious.

Vacuum Propulsion

January 29, 2016

Agreed, a vacuum propulsion system would be interesting for aircraft and spacecraft when fossil fuel is exhausted. At present people are merrily using tons of fuel to go to a beach to do nothing, and cities are choked with cars.”

So, Ron, you are back on the antigravity (reactionless propulsion) bandwagon. Let’s see now; that means that you have ticked just about every box which is expected for a career loony-tune. You have ticked perpetual-motion (LENR, Searl, Bedini, Johnson, Bessler, etc.), antigravity (Searl, Kellum, etc.) and miracle cancer-cures (Priore). Where is the death-ray? That would really tick the last box, or are you afraid of unwelcome comparisons being made between yourself and Grindell-Matthews? Just for the record, there is another characteristic feature that marks you (and your gang) as being several suits short of a full deck. And that is your worship of Tesla. Despite all of the efforts of the Tesla Society, the ignoramuses of the Internet and his home country, historians of science and technology know of Tesla only as a loud-mouthed showman who tried to steal credit for every new invention, who made no real discoveries and who disintegrated (due to endemic mental illness) to such an extent that all that he could do in the end was tell fanciful lies, to investors and journalists, about free-energy and death-rays. The bottom line is that anyone who cites Tesla as being a scientist, as having anything to offer and is anything more than derogatory about that petty conman, outs himself immediately as being of the same ilk. You and your crackpot followers tick every box in that regard as well.

Attempts to Stop Stephen Crothers Speaking

January 28, 2016

This is attempted censorship at work again, it cannot succeed, because Steve’s work is famous throughout the world of science. He has consistently and comprehensively out argued the dogmatists. Big bang and black hole theory are based on zero torsion, and are mathematical nonsense. The dogma of Einsteinian general relativity is being rejected by the best minds as it is taught, in all the best universities in the world.”

His ‘work’ consists merely of parading, again and again, his inability to understand the simplest solution of Einstein’s formulation of General Relativity. That is not ‘out-arguing’; that is merely the same as a child throwing a temper-tantrum in the hope that the adults will give in. Nobody cites your rubbish-papers either Ron. And if the E-Crap-E theory is being taught, where is the evidence? Why can you not name any of these ‘best minds’? Face the facts Ron: you are just a run-of-the-mill crank who is surrounded by other incompetent would-be physicists. The whole bunch of you are an insult to the concept of scientific research, and an embarrassing indictment of the poor judgement of British scientific societies. The only amusing aspect is to be found in those Russian instructions for applying for a visa: if ‘Sam Spade’ Crothers has no relevant affiliation (who on Earth would have him, even as a porter … or for a bet?) he is asked to insert ‘housekeeper’. We think that that would be far too exalted a position for someone of his intellect, and might raise suspicions!

Importance of the Archives

January 26, 2016

The supreme importance of the archives is that without them I have never existed, like Trotsky.”

Yes indeedy; we have pointed out before that you – and your so-called success – are mere excrescences of the internet, which has become a haven for the lunatic fringe in general. Still, drink to your success  … while it lasts. Do you want ice with that?

Fusion-Fool

January 22, 2016

Heat from LENR

January 21, 2016

OK many thanks, agreed about conventional nuclear fusion, it is a nonsensical waste of money, and very dangerous. I have been against nuclear power all my life, here in Wales it has caused thousands of deaths from cancer, and the lid has been blown off the cover up.”

In what sense is (hot) fusion dangerous, Ron? If a fusion reactor were as easy to build as a fusion (hydrogen) bomb, the problem would have been solved decades ago. Afraid of the nuclear waste? The ‘waste’ is helium, of which there is currently a world-wide shortage. Perhaps you should not pontificate on things about which you know nothing. We would enjoy the deafening silence.

Agreed with Gareth ‘the Sewage’ Evans

January 22, 2016

Energy in Spacetime

January 22, 2016

Agreed with Gareth, in the latest work the mass of the fundamental vacuum particle has been calculated from the g factor of the electron, which is found by spectroscopy to very high precision.”

Yes, this is now indeed “a ridiculous level of maintained interest”; one of the many signs that it is not real, and is a delusion born of a meaningless form of response-rating. Given the rather unnatural lickspittle relationship between Ron and Sewage, and the latter’s eagerness to please, it is hard to believe that Sewage was the ‘science officer’ for a County Council. 

Funny, Because it is Untrue

Link to Osamu Ide Video on www.aias.us

January 20, 2016

Many thanks indeed!”

The document which Ide is seen brandishing near to the end of the video is Japanese Patent No. 5587691. There is also an English-language version, US Patent 8873262. These were both granted. They were granted because the applications made no claim that the device produced more energy than it consumed. Patent examiners are not the brightest people in the world, but they do not grant patents on perpetual-motion machines*. So, Ide is playing the same con-trick which he has been playing for many years (and which his hero, Edwin Gray, played before him): he obtains a patent on an unsurprising device, or pens a mundane scientific paper about the geegaw, and then tells the suckers/investors that it is a net source of energy. All that he has to do then is to add a demonstration, using meters which are unable to monitor the spiky output properly, and the stage is set to sucker the layman. 

*They are not so good at spotting inventions which produce movement-from-nowhere. That is why the Emdrive patent was granted, and how the UK Government was persuaded to fund an impossible invention.

The Bouncer in Cricket

January 18, 2016

This can be seen on “youtube cricket bouncer” via google. It is probably the most vicious thing in all sport apart from the short arm tackle in rugby, the latter is banned.”

According to various dictionaries, a bounder is:

“One who doesn’t know his place. One whose ambition leads him to step out of line or exceed his proper social standing.”

“A dishonourable man; a cad. A social climber.”

“an obtrusive, ill-bred person.”

Bowled you a googly there, Ron!

Yet again, we reiterate that this is a wonderful resource: most pseudoscientists hide their online mistakes, but Ron is so arrogant that he truly believes that his drivel is worth preserving. Look at this, for example,

Daily Report 29/12/14

December 31, 2014

There were 5,429 files downloaded from 472 reading sessions, many due to the Rense Radio broadcast of 29/12/14 Pacific time, 30/12/14 GMT.”

Who on Earth would think that attention from Rense fans was a good thing? Have you seen the output of that disgusting anti-semitic holocaust-denying conspiracy-theorist?

Eight Thousand Dissident Physicists

January 18, 2016

Many thanks, I will post this on my blog with your permission. There are so many dissidents that there is essentially no standard model of physics.”

This is indeed a very useful guide to the loonies out there. Another useful guide is the membership-list of the Natural Philosophy Alliance. We have mentioned both lists many times in the past. What amazes us, Ron, is that you are not on either list. What is wrong? Are you too loony, even for them, or are the membership fees too high?
