Musings

Odd thoughts for no other reason than it has been two weeks since I last posted.

Whatever happened to cold fusion?

Whatever happened to the vaccine for cavities?

If there really is a patent for a carburetor that gets 100 mpg, why is it that all of these car companies are not using it to capture market share?

Why are there conspiracy theorists who believe that there really is such a thing as a carburetor that gets 100 mpg, but that the car or oil companies are not letting anyone use it?

Why does the US Congress believe that tax cuts are bad, but giving $185 billion in borrowed money is good?

Feel free to add your own musings.

I'm still wondering, what does "the politics of meaning" mean?

It was replicated in hundreds of world-class laboratories, and these replications were published in about a thousand mainstream, peer-reviewed journal papers. You will find a list of 3,500 papers and the full text from 600 papers here:

Remember back in the '80s when AYDS was a diet plan? A little off topic but cold fusion triggered that memory...
