April 27, 2016

Regular readers will remember Colonel (SAS) Sir Arthur Edwyn Turner-Thomas VC, GC etc. etc., Ron’s favorite genealogist. Well, he has resurfaced and, as simple Sir Arthur Edwyn Turner VC, is now running a company called Red Kite Art and Jewels Ltd. The accounts made up to 28th February 2016 show healthy net assets of £29,339. 

http://stores.ebay.co.uk/Red-Kite-Art-and-Jewels-Ltd

PS (1st May) A peculiarity of this website is that, at the moment, no art or jewels appear to be on offer! Still, what is just one more lie?

Closed-Minded … Us?

April 27, 2016

Just to show how open-minded we are, have a look at the video on this website:

Cancer – The Forbidden Cures

which features Mr Hoxsey, the most notorious cancer-cure quack of all time (dying Steve McQueen and Andy Kaufman were both ripped-off by the Hoxsey clinic even after the conman’s death). The above site, The Cancer Hub, comes very close to infringing UK laws on the marketing of so-called cancer-cures. So who runs this alternative-health site; he has certainly done well out of it, judging by the houses and cars in this area,

https://www.google.co.uk/maps/@51.6255916,-3.8560385,363a,23.3y,331.52h,45.03t/data=!3m1!1e3

Step forward Christian Reason. Unless his name was ‘taken in vain’, this is the same person who was so upset by our treatment of the crackpot, Pope.  Why would he suddenly take such an interest? Let us see. Hmmm, Mr Reason lives in the Swansea area, and has an interest in cancer. Who else do we know who lives in the Swansea area and has an interest in cancer? Hey, Mr Reason, you and Ron should put your heads together … or have you already done so? 

[Un]reason replies:

“Wow your really pushing the boat with your assumptions! If this is a reflection on your intelligence as a scientist then I can understand why you run a troll website, it makes perfect sense.”

Firstly, do you mean “you’re”? It really is very funny when an outraged illiterate falls at the first hurdle like that. Secondly, did you not really mean to use the turn-of-phrase, “pushing the boat out“? It is doubly funny when an outraged illiterate falls at the second hurdle as well! So, what assumptions? Are you, or are you not, the person pushing dodgy advice on cancer treatment? If you are referring to the suggestion that you are a cats-paw for Myron Evans, then it really does not help your case that you use the knee-jerk ‘troll’ slur just as readily as he does. It is certainly a sad commentary on the state of UK science when quacks think that they can pass judgement on those who are simply defending proven physics, and when physics-cranks are defended by gulls such as Winfield who claim to have tasked themselves with communicating accepted science. No, none of us ‘run a troll website’, but some of us find it relaxing to snipe at the lunatic fringe as a break from correlating state-of-the-art genuine scientific research.

 

 

 

Death of a Welsh Crackpot#2

April 27, 2016

We have received a comment on our previous post, with the above title, and we think that the comment, and our reply, deserve wider dissemination:

“Wow what a reflection on you as a person to write about a man who has passed and who is no longer to debate or refute your comments which have intent to discredit! I have had the honour of working with Professor Viv Pope and what a lovely humble man he was. For those that do not know the man here is a documentary I helped produced for him –”

 

[OUR APOLOGIES TO OUR READERS FOR THE COWARDLY REMOVAL OF THIS VIDEO, BUT WE ARE STILL ‘ENJOYING’ IT BECAUSE ‘FILM EDITOR’ MR REASON APPEARS NOT TO KNOW THAT COMPUTERS HAVE A TEMPORARY VIDEO-CACHE]

“We do not like crackpots here, and see no reason why the mere fact of death should sanctify their loony ideas. Do you really think that people like him are amenable to reason when they are alive? We have always tried to engage with loonies whenever possible and they have always refused to reply, or just repeated their misconceptions like a mantra … or simply hurled abuse and threats. They always deliberately put themselves outside of mainstream science simply because they always have other aims: they want to be ‘the new Einstein’ or they want to provide theoretical backup for their perpetual-motion or antigravity machine or cancer-cure. We are well aware that Pope collaborated with a university-employed mathematician. That may mean a lot to the layman, but it means nothing to us: the layman assumes that the crackpot has been ‘elevated’ by such a link, we instead wonder whether the mathematician deserves his job. We can cite mathematicians who have backed crooks, such as John Searl, using virtuoso displays of mathematics. What does that tell you? We know what it tells us! The ‘strike but hear’ pose is often the favored one of the ‘humble’ pseudoscientist. We see only the ‘umbleness of Uriah Heep. Now let us come to your own deceptiveness: you claim to have worked with ‘Professor’ Pope. Perhaps you would care to tell us whereof he held his chair. Did he have his own university or institute, located in his cottage, like many another? Where was his office? Was it perhaps shared ‘in spirit’ with another of his ilk at Keele? People like Pope, ‘Ron’ and yourself are a menace to the education of young scientists and, in the cut-throat world of technology, no nation can afford to have its young people crippled by the deceptions of the lunatic fringe.”

We can certainly agree that one cannot trust everything that comes out of universities: loonies seem to gravitate towards them with the same alacrity with with paedophiles gravitate towards schools and TV. They unfortunately also seem to be welcomed with the same alacrity. We also agree that angular momentum is not well understood by some people. But is that because of any fundamental failing, or simply because nearly all textbooks present the topic on a need-to-know basis? The subtleties of the subject are often neglected. The late (and, yes, unlamented by us) Eric Laithwaite once published an entire article which ‘proved’ (with a thought experiment) that linear and angular momentum are not separately conserved (thus contradicting a fundamental physical law). The article would have fooled most readers, but Laithwaite’s reasoning appeared to work only because of the sloppiness of presentation of most textbooks. To put it starkly: we say that a non-rotating object, moving in a perfectly straight line, can possess angular momentum. Sounds loony, right? But we are correct. Would Pope have agreed? Does his acolyte above agree? 

PS The real sting-in-the-tail here is that Professor Alan Winfield of the University of the West of England (or Bristol Technical College, as one of us remembers it before the cash-strapped UK government magically turned all such colleges into ‘universities’ overnight in order to be able to milk more students for cash) is a member of the UWE’s ‘Science Communication Unit’. Can one really imagine a worse person for such a task than crackpot-befuddled Winfield? In his defence, one must  mention that he is an electrical engineer, and they are always ‘physics-challenged’.

And of course Winfield is a completely unbiased, even-handed and disinterested individual,

Legal Scrutiny of Waste of Public Funds on Pseudoscience

April 27, 2016

As one of the acknowledged leaders of the avant garde ECE physics. I agree that there should be international legal scrutiny and enquiries about the waste of funding on the obsolete standard model of physics, now overturned by the ECE physics. Also legal scrutiny of how ECE scientists are locked out of funding and jobs, and of gutter abuse of ECE scientists. I feel that prosecutions for malfeasance and fraud are in order, and lawsuits for libel. It is very well known that AIAS / UPITEC has undermined the entire rotten facade built around the Einstein field equation, to which dogmatists are fixated. There is a difference between making an error and deliberately ignoring very well known refutations. The former is human, if quickly corrected it is fine, but the latter is fraud. The same type of thing happens in climatology and wind turbine scamming.”

Sam Spade has again done sterling service here as a crackpot-detector. That is, anyone or anything that he supports is guaranteed to be loony. The bride-of-Frankenstein lookalike, Jocelyne Lopez, is a spokesperson for an anti-Einstein organisation run by George Galeczki   and Peter Marquardt . It goes  without saying of course that they are all on the List of Dissident Scientists and that Galeczki and Marquardt tend to publish in dubious journals such as Apeiron. This is nevertheless an interesting development. Perhaps these loons will carry this fatuous yet malicious  implication of financial misconduct too far and will end up in court on the wrong end of a defamation suit. Meanwhile it is interesting to note that, even though Spade has published his latest rubbish on the crackpot vixra site as usual, it has not escaped criticism even there (quite apart from the complaints about his mass-mailing of his nonsense papers). It seems that his latest travesty is to be published in the Hadronic Journal. For the uninitiated: this is one of the longest-surviving crackpot-friendly publications. Guess who the founder was. Here is a visual clue:

For the edification of those readers of ours who do not already know this: they may be interested to learn that, although Ron has blocked any comment on his posts at drmyronevans.wordpress.com, the same is not true of the upitec.org site. His posts are to be found daily at this apparently more open-minded mirror site, and there is nothing to stop feedback being left there. Of course, the underlings will not be sufficiently open-minded to show the comment. Nevertheless, we think that it will be informative for Ron to know, every day,  in just what high esteem his work is held.

Comment on Summary by Steve Bannister

Seconded, Steve Bannister has been following ECE theory since inception, fourteen years and is the leading economic expert on energy from spacetime and LENR.”

This comment from Ron, on the comment by Sewage Evans, on the summary by the Dismal Scientist, pretty much sums up what is wrong with the world. Here we have a loony ‘scientist’, a representative of local government, and an example of the profession that we trust with our financial well-being: all demonstrating the abject failure of the education system to inculcate any sort of Baconian self-questioning.

Book of Scientometrics

April 26, 2016

I gave a copy of the Book of Scientometrics (UFT307) to Ben Jones of Mullock’s today and he was completely astonished at the vast interest. So am I in fact, because this is tough theoretical physics, difficult even for a specialist. Very similar to James Joyce, whose two novels “Ulysses” and “Finnegan’s Wake” are also very difficult avant garde prose poetry but sell by the millions.”

It is certainly astonishing that a so-called scientist, in receipt of a Civil List pension, would lie about there being a ‘vast interest’ in his pseudoscientific ramblings. They do not cause the slightest difficulty for specialists, as they are clearly rubbish. We agree of course that Joyce’s works are equally rubbishy, but they are part of ‘culture’ and reading them (or pretending to read them) is an essential rite-of-passage for the social climber. You should direct Mr Jones to the dismal collection below, so that he can ask himself why few, if any, of those thousands of followers vote on the videos. Are they too stupid to find their way there? Or are they simply a figment of your imagination.

Going Cheap

April 26, 2016

FOR POSTING: Auction on 30th June by Mullock’s

April 26, 2016

A collection of my medals, valued at about half a million pounds, and a sample folder valued at £50,000, will be auctioned by Mullock’s on 30th June, the catalogue will be ready in a few weeks. So I wish to support the auction usingwww.aias.us and www.upitec.org. Proceeds will be invested in the Newlands Family Trust and used for various good purposes, notably science and the Welsh language. The material is being kept in a vault at Mullock’s insured for up to ten million pounds. All the material was transferred to Mullock’s today. I would be grateful if this notice could be posted on the home page of both sites, as the first item seen by the reader. Reference to the e bay auction onwww.aias.us should be removed, because the e bay auction it is now out dated and expired, and e bay is not suitable for such prestigious material.”

We have put that in our diaries, as we think that the medals would look nice on a charm bracelet (or would they then technically make it a ‘charmless’ bracelet?). The folder would be nice to have too; have you seen the shocking prices at Staples? It does not seem a lot to pay; we anticipate that the cost of a good meal for two should cover it all … when the auctioneer has wised-up (hammer prices at Mullock’s tend to be rather ‘muted’ to say the least). You must have spent a fortune on contents insurance. And now the cost of an armored car to the auction house. Or was it all transferred by registered mail? By the way, what is the point of removing references to the embarrassing Ebay auction from the aias.us site when blog references to that hilarious episode have been lovingly archived in several places?

Congratulations to Gerard t’Hooft

April 25, 2016

… who has just won first prize, from the Gravity Research Foundation, for his essay: ‘Local Conformal Symmetry: the Missing Symmetry Component for Space and Time’. Stephen Hawking has not won a GRF first prize since 1971. Ron of course has submitted at least one essay but, again of course, never got anywhere. The less than obvious factor in all of this is that the GRF was founded by a rich loony and continues to consider all sorts of peculiar concepts. So Ron cannot claim that his effort was automatically rejected by closed-minded dogmatists. For instance, in 2010 a Richard T.Hammond won a fourth prize for his essay on the ‘necessity of torsion in gravity’; where were you Ron?

Why Indeed?

Assault Complaint your ref. 4618/201600256

April 25, 2016

Ombudsman Wales,
Dear Mr Thomas,
I repeat that this common assault took place. You have my word as an Armiger (Member of the Gentry) and Civil List Pensioner, appointed directly by Queen Elizabeth, and my word as a U. S. citizen. Why should I make a complaint if the assault did not take place?”

… why would I claim that perpetual-motion machines are being sold to Fortune-50 companies out of this building?

My beautiful picture

… why would I claim to be the world’s most prolific and successful physicist when nobody but myself and a few loony friends ever cite my publications?

… why would I tell the Prime Minister that wind turbines can, and should, be replaced by the perpetual-motion devices of a Japanese crackpot?

… why would I recommend that the UK government should fund the cancer-curing levitating perpetual-motion machine of a convicted thief and saboteur?

… why would I claim to have received written ‘death threats’ but never post the evidence on my blog (which is good enough for posting all sorts of other nonsense)?

… why would I inform people that ‘armiger’ is equivalent to a knighthood and that a Civil List pension is superior to the Order of Merit?

… why would I defame well-known scientists such as Atkins and Hawking, and call for CERN to be closed down, without good reason?

… oh dear, I appear to have comprehensively answered my own question.

RON!  Half the day is gone and you have not yet wished your employer (according to you) a happy birthday! Don’t you owe fealty, being a member of the nobility (according to you)? Is it because you are American when it suits you? Why don’t you go home? We have often thought that California would welcome you. California: the trail-mix state, where everyone who is not a fruit is a flake or a nut.

Timely Intervention

April 20, 2016

 

Hey, Ron, the latest issue of American Journal of Physics is entirely devoted to instruction in the field of general relativity; including the weeding-out of misconceptions. If only you could read it … but, like all of the good (i.e. non-pseudoscientific) stuff, it is behind a paywall. If you could read this issue, we would particularly recommend the article on the Coriolis field, which presents:- “… a pedagogical discussion of the Coriolis field, emphasizing its not-so-well-understood aspects. We show that this field satisfies the field equations of the so-called Newton–Cartan theory, a generalization of Newtonian gravity that is covariant under changes of arbitrarily rotating and accelerated frames. Examples of solutions of this theory are given, including the Newtonian analogue of the Goedel universe. We discuss how to detect the Coriolis field by its effect on gyroscopes, of which the gyrocompass is an example. Finally, using a similar framework, we discuss the Coriolis field generated by mass currents in general relativity, and its measurement by the gravity probe B and LAGEOS/LARES experiments.” Perhaps it is a good thing that you cannot learn of such things, Ron: you might try to turn the Newton-Cartan theory into the Newton-Cartan-Evans theory! Another 25 points on the Baez crackpot-index, Yeeey!

FOR POSTING: Essay Broadcast 120

This is the broadcast of Essay 120 just posted, describing perihelion precession as a Lense Thirring effect with its characteristic gravitomagnetic Lande factor.”

Well done with Thirring (i.e. not making the ‘th’ sound as in thrifty), but not so good with Lense, which should have two syllables. It is almost as if you are speaking a foreign language … something which is true of all of your nonsense-physics.

Rashomon-Effect

April 19, 2016

“Moron placed three boulders on the road carriageway outside of his neighbour’s garage access on 15-4-16. Each were the size of a large bread loaf. and about six inches into the road, off land his neighbour owns. Yes, land his neighbour owns! The road is an unadopted cul de sac that serves about forty dwellings and a farm. This was a ridiculous dangerous thing to do. He could have caused a serious vehicle accident, or an elderly pensioner pedestrian could have had a nasty fall. Two Police Officers removed the boulders on 16-4-16 and dumped them in a hedge they then spoke to Moron. After they left Moron was seen ridiculously struggling to carry the boulders one by one back into his back garden. Is this the uncivil behaviour expected or permitted of someone conferred a Queen’s Civil Listing? Can the Palace tolerate this?”

‘Stone Digger’, 17th April 2016

“Neither the Council nor the police object to my fencing the boundary and sealing off my driveway. They cannot interfere with private land. Yesterday I marked the boundary with heavy stones. These were stolen within twenty four hours, but I found them and have stored them. They are valuable granite stones given to me by my lifelong friend Peter Harris. This theft is another serious offence. I am hereby reporting this theft to PC Jamie Grey, and to the Member of Parliament with a request for an investigation.”

Ron, 17th April 2016

Any bets on which version is the more accurate?

 

Craigcefnparc: Future Ghost-Town

Application for Double Yellow Lines

April 17, 2016

The Community Council and the police, working in coordination, can make an application for double yellow lines throughout Mawr, so a thousand pound fine would be imposed on cars parking on double yellow lines. I have no idea why double yellow lines were not put down fifty years ago.”

Duh, Ron, Duh; car-ownership was much lower years ago and parking was therefore not an issue (and is probably still not an issue among reasonable folk). But what of the future? Barring the parking of cars on the road will remove their ‘traffic-calming’ effect and thereby lead to higher vehicle-speeds through the village. More importantly, it will make it unfeasible for many residents to own a car if there is no convenient place to park it. This in turn will make the village entirely unsuitable as a ‘dormitory location’ for workers employed in Swansea, etc. Some may turn their front gardens into parking spaces; probably removing ‘historic’ brickwork in the process and leading to increased water run-off and flooding when it rains. Others will simply move away (being very careful to conceal the existence of ‘Toad of Toad Hall’ from buyers) and their place taken by the housebound. Rental agencies might well move in and let the properties acquired to those who do not need to work; including the long-term unemployed. All-in-all the character of the village, which you supposedly value, will be destroyed.        

Planning Permission?

April 17, 2016

“(Case Ref: ZA17756)HIGHWAY ISSUES

Mr Byron Davies, M. P.
Dear Mr Davies

The parking too close to the junction of Rhyddwen Road and Mountain Road continues unabated, today a car belonging to the house just opposite trespassed directly on my driveway, without my permission, and also trespassed on Mountain Road.”

When did you acquire a driveway, Ron? That must sound very grand to those who have not bothered to Google-Earth your address, but those who have know that any such driveway to your door could accommodate a Mini at best. By the way, have you seen Atkins’ driveway?! So, is your ‘driveway’ another fantasy, or just a fancy name for ‘the bit of Mountain Road next to your wall’? Again by the way, Ron, that being an unadopted road you had better hope that it never suffers any serious damage. It could cost a fortune to repair.

Super-Proud, Ron?

Magnetic field of rotating conductors

April 17, 2016

Dear Jean de Climont,

Many thanks, we have looked at this device, and our assessment has been posted on the blog, in cooperation with Dr. Horst Eckardt and the group of experimentalists with whom he works in Muenich.”

Yesterday it was LaViolette. Today it is Climont, compiler of the List of Dissident Scientists. This, even more than so than is membership of the Natural Philosophy Alliance, is a handy guide for any layman who may otherwise be taken in by the superficial appearance of scientific rectitude. By the way, Ron, the point of LaViolette’s communication was to advertise a crowd-funding initiative to finance Nasty-Case’s antigravity machine. To our minds, any attempt to crowd-fund an impossible invention is outright fraud.   We know of an American divorce-lawyer who is using crowd-funding to finance his mechanical antigravity machine. His legal training may well prove useful in court … if the law ever catches up with pseudoscientific conmen, that is: it can barely get to grips with pyramid-selling and Ponzi frauds. 

Proud, Ron?

Superconducting levitation thruster

April 16, 2016

This may be of interest to the group, especially the development of ECE2 theory for the idea.”

How honored you must feel Ron, to be contacted by LaViolette, one of the world’s leading loony-tunes! The mountain of lunacy has come to the crackpot-Mohammad of Craigcefnparc! Nassikas has long been on our radar as being an academic loony who (unbelievably) was entrusted with the education of others. In fact, Greece currently boasts two antigravity-pushing professors. One of them favors moronic mechanical methods while the other favors crazy electromagnetic ones. Gee, the Greek government must really be short of money if those are the best staff that they can afford. LaViolette and Nassikas are, of course, both members of crackpot-central (aka the Natural Philosophy Alliance). Nassikas is also a member of the Telesio-Galilei organisation, run by former AIAS member, Dunging-Davies. Nassikas is in good company, as another member of Telesio-Galilei is successful antigravity patentee, Boris Volfson, whose background (and reputation) is in sewage. However, what we really wanted to tell you is that LaViolette is selling Nassikas short. ‘Nasty-Case’ has also applied for a patent on a ‘space-time energy’ pump (having given up on Wankel-ripoff engine designs) which “absorbs ether gravitational space”.  You had better rush to explain it using your ECE2 theory. Good idea, by the way, to stick to that name; you would not want any German loony to share in your glory. 

Another Modest Suggestion

Setting and Example

April 16, 2016

Many thanks to Stuart Davies, I try to set an example as a Member of the Welsh speaking Gentry and Civil List Pensioner appointed by Crown and Parliament, even though I have no formal duties.”

Why do you not set an example as an honest contrite scientist, and give up the Civil List Pension? Just consider, for one moment, what will happen if you do not. At some point in the future, an historian is going to have to write (after listing the great accomplishments of Faraday, Herschel, Hamilton, etc.): Myron Evans, minor work in computer-modelling, but better known for the promotion of pseudoscience and for association with major perpetual-motion and antigravity frauds.

Of course, we do not play favourites and are basically ‘agin everything’ that is scientifically dodgy. So it is a bittersweet pleasure that we now have some pseudoscience-related ‘dirt’ on Baez himself. It is so so hard to find a paragon of virtue these days. 

 

Poor Confused Ron

The Law of Precessions

April 15, 2016

The astronomically measured rate of precession in radians per second is half the gravitomagnetic Lande factor multiplied by the magnitude of the gravitomagnetic field of Evans Eckardt relativity. For the Lense Thirring precession (“frame dragging”) the Lande factor is one. For other precessions it is different from one in general and characterizes the precession. for example the precession of the perihelion, Thomas precession, the geodedic or de Sitter precession, the equinoctial precession, the earth’s precession or spinning top precession or “wobbling” of the earth’s axis.”

No, Ron, the ‘wobble’ of the Earth’s axis, now named for Chandler, is caused by nutation; not precession per se. Incidentally, how do you incorporate nutation into your fatuous new theory? That is the problem with all of your ‘one-trick pony’ theories: it is easy to think up theories which explain just one aspect of a phenomenon, perhaps much better than does the existing theory. The mark of a valid theory however is that it explains all aspects of the phenomenon. We have frequently pointed this out concerning your gravitational theories; where, we have asked, is the explanation of the tides? Again incidentally, why was Sam Spade at an ‘electric universe’ conference (see our previous posts)? Could it be that he is not really on your side? The fact that you are both anti-Einstein does not necessarily mean that he believes your theory. This is a universal problem among crackpots. Former AIAS member, Dunging-Davis is also an electric-universe crank. AIAS: a rubbish-bin for failed scientists. Next stop for AIAS? The rubbish-bin of history.

Ron’s Daily Lies

On Course for New Record High

April 14, 2016

The www.aias.us site is on course for a third new record high of gigabytes downloaded in 2016. Daily recording of scientometrics started on April 30th 2004, so almost twelve years of daily scientometrics are available, a huge amount of detailed data showing sustained and intense interest from literally the best in the world (for example the world’s top twenty universities by webometrics, Times, Shanghai and QS rankings). On 12th April 2016 the equivalent of over half a million printed pages was downloaded in one day (1.903 gigabytes). This has been a voluntary international cooperation from the outset, so congratulations to all staffs.”

The true picture is of course given here:

 

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC1LlhERLMwyV9l1VjnRskIQ/videos?sort=p&view=0&flow=list

The statistics show that there was little interest to begin with, and that it is decreasing with passing time. Where are all of those followers, Ron? And, in the background, our other monitoring method also records zero interest in Ron and his works. With that referendum looming, it is a sobering thought that fantasists such as Ron and Sewage are allowed to vote.

By the way, folks, they have forgotten to block comments on some of those videos. Why not offer your opinion? It will not be posted of course … but the message will still get through.

 

Shermer on Crothers

April 12, 2016

“A self-taught mathematician named Stephen Crothers riffled through dozens of PowerPoint slides chockablock full of equations related to Einstein’s general theory of relativity, which he characterized as “numerology.” Einstein’s errors, Crothers proclaimed, led to the mistaken belief in black holes and the big bang. I understood none of what he was saying, but I am confident he’s wrong by the fact that for a century thousands of physicists have challenged Einstein, and still he stands as Time’s Person of the Century … The EU [Electric Universe] folks I met were unfailingly polite, unquestionably smart and steadfastly unwavering in their belief that they have made one of the most important discoveries in the history of science. Have they? Probably not. The problem was articulated in a comment [Wallace] Thornhill made when I asked for their peer-reviewed papers: “In an interdisciplinary science like the Electric Universe, you could say we have no peers, so peer review is not available.” Without peer review or the requisite training in each discipline, how are we to know the difference between mainstream and alternative theories, of which there are many? In his book The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test, Tom Wolfe quotes Merry Prankster Ken Kesey: “You’re either on the bus or off the bus.” It’s not that EUers are wrong; they’re not even on the bus.”

Filthy Big Bang

April 7, 2016

Plenty of evidence here for an Adelaide police enquiry. Jeremy Jones used to behave like this almost every day, and promptly closed the EDCL. Almost all his script was made up of expletives, so if they were deleted, there would be a blank page. Difficult to find WJJ’s publications with an electron microscope, and he has disappeared into utter obscurity.”

Upon reading the above piece of defamation, as well as your autobiography, one wonders why you inspired such dislike. Could it be because you have always acted like a Crothers? One also wonders, reading between the lines, why anyone – innocence aside – would even leap to the conclusion that you had committed arson. Did you give off a vindictive psychopathic vibe, even in those days? Anyway, how is obscurity treating Professor Jones? Oh look:

Hmm, that is a very funny sort of ‘obscurity’ is it not?  How very unlike your real obscurity.

RAMSAY MEMORIAL CENTENARY DINNER – Thursday 30 June 2016

April 6, 2016

Dear Dr. Hawes,
Many thanks for this kind invitation. I would much like to attend the dinner, but following a severe illness from 1998 to 2003 I am not allowed to travel far on medical advice. However, AIAS Fellow Kerry Pendergast has indicated that he could attend on my behalf. He is a Hauksbee Medallist of the Royal Society. I hope that he can be allowed to attend.

My biographical details are found on www.aias.us , notably the blue box above my coat of arms on the home page.”

You really told the Ramsay people that you are now into backing perpetual-motion machines? We bet that they did not envisage that  turn of events when they gave you the award. Penderghastly may have to put up with some pretty sarcastic post-prandial conversation. On the other hand, perhaps all chemists are pig-ignorant when it comes to physics and mathematics; just look at how long it took them to work out the carbon fullerene molecular structure because they were ignorant of basic topological geometry.

Plans for UFT344: Lense Thirring Precession and the Gravitomagnetic Field

April 6, 2016

The Lense Thirring precession, or frame dragging, is explained directly by the ECE2 gravitomagnetic field equations. The Lense Thirring precession is half the gravitomagnetic field of ECE2, thus proving the ECE2 equations immediately. The gravitomagnetic field of a rotating body produces an effect on a gyroscope called “frame dragging”. This is exactly analogous to a magnetic field producing a change of orientation of a compass needle. The gyroscope is a circle of mass in a loop and is exactly analogous to a magnetic dipole moment (electric current in a loop). A literature search using google keywords “Gravitomagnetic field and precession” produces the following paper on the first page of the Google results:”

Don’t you know, Ron, that the Lense-Thirring effect is considered to be the only thing that could come anywhere near to providing UFO-style antigravity? Bob Forward won a prize from the Gravity Research Foundation* for an essay on his design for a ‘practical’ antigravity device based upon the effect. But he was the first to admit that the design was far far far far beyond  our technological abilities. That did not deter certain aerospace magazines from publishing artists’ impressions of Forward’s device, hidden away in current aircraft. That only goes to show just how dishonest even mainstream engineers are about the limits of physics. Suddenly one realizes that Nick Cook of Jane’s Defence Weekly, who wrote that ludicrous book about secret antigravity research, is very much the rule rather than being an exception. 

*Set up by a crank, and still run by cranks, but always popular among certain people because, at one time, the top monetary prize was larger than the Nobel Prize cash reward. Among those who have tried to win a prize are Stephen Hawking … and our own dear Ron.

Richard Burton … Not

April 5, 2016

As your best friends and colleagues (or at least the best that you can get) are obviously not telling you, it falls to us to point out that these sound-recordings of yours are AWFUL.  Quite apart from the technical flaws (background noise and rubbish content), there are the in-built flaws of poor pronunciation, worse articulation and a total lack of elan; all topped-off by that speech-impediment masquerading as a ‘silurian’ accent. Have you heard the beautifully spoken and actorly Silurians on Dr Who? You could learn a thing or two! Failing that, have a tugboat-captain and pub-singer read it all out. We hear that he can be rented at very reasonable rates.

Reply from Ombudsman’s Office

April 4, 2016

To Mawr Community Council

I have been asked to make a detailed report of the common assault by Cllr. Ioan Richard, who is responsible for non government in Mawr, and a detailed report on Harris.”

And who exactly is going to believe the unsubstantiated claims of someone who constantly misinforms the Prime Minister’s Office about global warming and the state of modern physics? Someone who claims that perpetual-motion machines are being sold to big-business out of a Mexican hovel. Someone who illegally backs quack cancer-cures. Someone who defames CERN and famous British scientists. Not to mention someone who does not demur when his acolyte tells a rabid anti-semite shock-jock that Einstein and Cartan helped the Nazis to build anti-gravity machines. But, hey, keep all of that up. Not only will they not believe your cry-baby ‘verbal assault’ story, they might even start to wonder why you are receiving a Civil List pension.

Many thanks to Michael Jackson, not bad for a couple of coal miners, Kerry and myself.”

Why? What exactly did you do, apart from offer stumbling semi-literate pieces to camera?  You did not make the film (estimated cost $500,000), direct it or produce it.  Your tool, No-Bubbles Jackson, has removed all evidence of who actually made it: the Fucilla family. You and Jackson have certainly thereby colluded in several crimes. One day the police will come to your door on a matter other than traffic offences.

Demand for Apology Seconded

April 4, 2016

Agreed with Co President Gareth Evans. As Co President I demand a police investigation and dismissal for aggravated misconduct. What kind of example does this set for staff and students? If Australian law is similar to the common law here it is up to the police to decide whether or not to prosecute. In this case the evidence is written down, de facto.”

Our congratulations to Dr Chen for telling the irritating little pseudoscientist Stephen ‘Sam Spade’ Crothers where to get off. It would certainly be disgraceful for  a scientist to use such language when dealing with another scientist, but Crothers does not qualify as one. But Chen should not apologize. If one starts to apologize to the likes of Sam Spade, where will it end? We would sooner apologize to a cane toad which we had squashed. 

How’s It Going #2

April 4, 2016

The most viewed video at the moment is the old Fucilla biopic of Ron, with 2o1 views. If everybody had watched the whole video, that would have amounted to well over 50 hours in all. In fact, the total viewing time is 10 hours, and the average viewing time is 3 minutes 34 seconds. Oh, and there are 6 down-thumbs and 4 up-thumbs. Several laws have certainly been infringed here. It is unlikely that the Fucilla family approved its posting (especially with their involvement excised). Even if one argued that it was covered by ‘Creative Commons’, the rules of the latter have been broken by posting an incomplete badly-edited version. Essay 38 is now in second place, with 60 views. If everybody had watched the whole video, that would have amounted to over 7 hours in all. In fact, the total viewing time is 26 minutes, and the average viewing time has fallen to 28 seconds. Oh, and there are now 8 down-thumbs and only 1 up-thumb (well done, Ron). Are you really going to stick with the feeble excuse that your ‘thousands of fans’ are being drawn away by ‘the gravitational fields of aias and upitec’? Pathetic. The above data  are the real measure of your ‘success’, and our other monitoring method is still grinding away unnoticed in the background!

“The Amazing Wayback Machine (www.archive.org)

The latest paper UFT341 and notes on the gaser are already permanently archived on the wayback machine in San Francisco, and on 9th March www.aias.us will be archived again on www.webarchive.org.uk.”

You do realize Ron that we are also archived by the Wayback Machine? We wager that, if anybody cared to nominate our blog (we are too modest to do it ourselves), then we would also start to be archived by the British Library.  It is not exactly a high honour.

Extra Features

April 3, 2016

In order to squeeze extra hilarity out of some of Ron’s YouTube efforts, use the ‘more’ button below the video. The ‘transcript’ option, if available, then offers up wonderful lines such as “I’m saying here was one type of comedy called commentary” and “I’m stain and a physicist”, not to mention “crystal showers sometimes known as the Christ”. This is what happens when sloppy diction meets computer speech-recognition. Of course, we should not mock the afflicted … but it is just sooo much fun when the afflicted one is such a pain to listen to.
