Their comments suggest that they failed all their science classes in high school, but were "socially promoted" anyway ... and that they have exactly zero real world exposure to real science and engineering. They probably think that "The Big Bang Theory" accurately depicts science and engineering students.
WOW! That could power my nephew's moped for a whole....week.
A red XKE Jag is a very practical car. It attracts Blondes.
>>All these stupid breakthroughs and holy grails are bunk every time we find out you have to feed more energy in than you get out.
Well of course you do. The First and Second Laws of Thermodynamics see to that. It is a given.
One of our biggest problems with energy policy is that we seem to have politicians who think otherwise running it.
How long before global warming fanatics start blaming this technology for causing global cooling because the atmosphere is being depleted of carbon dioxide.
Actually, if we re-elect Obama, he plans to repeal this law during his second term. It's far too restrictive on his energy plans for renewables. You might also expect to see him set pi to an even 3.0. It's part of an affirmative action plan to simplify math so that more will get passing grades.

Of course, you have to be really careful when handling dihydrogen monixide because it is really dangerous stuff.
