"when a lib discovers a freshman year chemistry experiment it is hyped as the discovery of the century"

I think you're giving the discovery too much credit. Middle School seems more likely to me. The article uses the word "could" 19 times. A REAL scientific article would use the word "did". The article also talks of electricity only using the word "volt". The critical word is "power". Voltage is irrelevant, if it takes too much power to run the operation.

You noticed that, too. Even if this device works great, it removes very little salt. Kevmo has a tendency to copy and paste low quality science articles on to FR.
