Posted on 02/25/2012 4:41:46 AM PST by Johnny B.
It is well known within LENR circles that Australian Entrepreneur, Dick Smith, is scathing of Andrea Rossis eCat claims. After Rossi refused his offer of a $1m (US) challenge, he extended that offer to Greek company Defkalion GT who are making similar claims. Mr Smiths offer was an attempt to expose the fraud he is certain these people are perpetrating.

He has stated that he will accept the judgement of any credible organization regarding whether a device meets his requirement.
In other news, the public testing by "seven well-known labs" was supposed to have started yesterday (2/24), but there has been no public information of any sort released. This is in contradiction to their earlier promises to release both the test protocols and the identities of the "well-known labs" prior to the beginning of testing.
I notice that they are now stating that the "well-known" labs have the option of keeping their identities secret. So, I guess we would just have to take Defkalion's word that they were "well-known" labs... or that there were any labs at all.
If proven then Obama would not be the eCatastrophe that we think.
Wow, whoever wrote that article is either a True Believer, or is armpit deep in the scam.
I’m not at all surprised that Rossi and Defkalion came up with excuses as to why they couldn’t take the $1,000,000. I find it especially laughable that Rossi—a man with no known source of income, who supposedly sold his house to raise funds—”doesn’t need the money.”
The investors? take over Leonardo Corp. so if any money comes in they'll be able to dip their beaks a little. Who knows, maybe Big Blue, the Elephant in the warehouse will be sold (and delivered!).
But Dick Smith could use his million bucks to just buy a 1 Mw e-cat, couldn't he? Therein lies the problem, we already know the only one in existence won't produce 1 Mw.
Rossi’ Italian Opera is tiring of the fat lady.
Meanwhile the paradigms of effusive and excessive praise for Lennie (Low Energy Non Nuclear Improbable Expectations)) keep falling.LENNIE! LOL!
Oh, that was so funny!
I'm afraid that I sound like that sometimes, when I'm trying to explain my scientific research to people. Except that I have a female voice, and I wave my hands around more.
No, the o has decided to go with the little green stuff that grows in my fish pond...or train more guinea pigs that can say, “row”.
Thanks for the ping.
For some reason, Vortex-L is unusually quiet about this. I usually like what Jed Rothwell has to say. Here’s what he said earlier about Dick Smith:
2012/02/17 I predict that Dick Smith will find an expert who will say: there are no neutrons, so there is no fusion. That will be the last we hear from him. — Jed Rothwell
For some reason, Vortex-L is unusually quiet about this. I usually like what Jed Rothwell has to say. Heres what he said earlier about Dick Smith:That's an unfair assessment by Rothwell. Dick Smith has stated several times that he would be happy to let any reasonable experts decide whether his claim has been met. He has specifically mentioned Kullander and Essen as acceptable judges.

Meanwhile, Rothwell has made numerous statements claiming "certain knowledge" that they are legitimate, but he refuses to name any of his sources, so we are expected to rely totally on his "say-so".
He, of course, has also committed to Rossi's demos being legitimate, so if either one turns out to be a fraud, his credibility will be shot.
He's going to revolutionize energy.
Ten years from now nobody will need gasoline or oil or coal or nuclear or anything.
We will all have little Rossi generators doing it all for us.
He lost me after “dingle arm.”
Heres my standard ignore post to Johnny B.
This will be my standard post to you that says youre not worth trying to have reasonable discussion, also says buzz off & doesnt leave crickets. Youve proven youre just here to harass; you have demonstrated that you are not here to discuss things on a level that Free Republic intended.
It appears the fat lady is sing a dirge...
Both are just as good as coming down from the mountain inscribed on stone tablets as far as the egomaniac is concerned.
“you are not here to discuss things on a level that Free Republic intended.”
I am not sure how you spamming FR with blogs and claiming they are “news” is what FR intended.
Heres my standard ignore post to Johnny B.Yes, Kevmo, we get it. You're childish and petulant.
You don't have to keep reminding us.
I haven’t heard from Toad in a while.
Heres my standard ignore post to Code Toad.
This will be my standard post to you that says youre not worth trying to have reasonable discussion, also says buzz off & doesnt leave crickets. Since you have degenerated into unsubstantiated accusations of calling a fellow Freeper a liar (and a liberal) without backing it up, you have demonstrated that you are not here to discuss things on a level that Free Republic intended.
What does it take to get someone to stop stalking an entire courtesy ping list of Freepers?
Final note: Trolls, troublemakers, disruptors, forum pests, malcontents, RINOs, liberals, stalkers, et al, would continue posting to (harassing) someone after being asked to stop. Conservative FReepers would not.
