Phew I am so relieved Mills didn't make his deadline. My hat is safe for another year! Yahoo! Woot! Woot! I get Turkey and ham to eat rather than farmer's stinky ol' straw hat!

Brilliant Light Power Going To Market - Free Energy Generator Part 2

It looks like Mills has inspired others with his business model.

First new SKARP update in 3 months: "We have had a number of third parties wishing to learn 'how' we will achieve the holy grail of laser powered shaving, from VC's to major corporations, and we continue to explore partnerships with those who believe." https://www.reddit.com/r/shittykicks...we_have_had_a/

Oh yeah, wasn't there a thread here on this sCRAP laser razor thingy? Anyway, from your link, the line immediately before your quote, "We are engineers, and are well aware that many people believe Skarp to be a 'scam'. As the founder of the project, and with my background of over two decades in laser/light powered hair growth mitigation/removal, I can assure you it is not."

You know, I literally had the usual scam email in my spam folder (which I deleted yesterday after having a good laugh about it) from an African Bank who gave the exact same spiel about how "trustworthy" they were and the mock-innocent "who us? Scammers? Never!"

LOLOL

Wow! Filaments!

Mills is just the last link in a long chain of people claiming they have found the hidden power of water. He's just the sophisticated version or it.

I'm getting a bit concerned. I have a Tesla Model 3 on order and my cunning plan had been to mount one of these BLP generators in the boot and essentially drive around forever for nothing. Looks like I'm going to have to join all the other losers in the queues for the superchargers.

Hey, I'm an expert on this free energy stuff. All isn't lost. Just hook up a generator on your Tesla motors to run back into the battery! It'll work because of vibrating quantum hydrino magnetic gravity-fed energy, um...sorry, ran out of adjectives.

And today the threads on BLP celebrate their first birthday.

Will michaelsuede return to update us on his prediction?

Ah but you see, the product IS out, but only those with Mill's special set of genes can actually activate it, which is why the rest of the world can't replicate his result.

He has discovered how to utilize The Force, but can't call it that because Disney would have him killed.

I think Mill's product was seized by the Secret Service once they realized a terrorist is 70% water. Imagine a suicide bomber using Mill's thingamajig to release the power of the potential hydrinos in his bladder!

In the course of experiments on the hydrino BLP came across a new variant with ten times the energy, the veryhighdrino. Thinking there must be more to it, continued refinement led to the ultrahighdrino. Of course there is no reason to continue development of devices powered by the plain old hydrino so the old design is being scrapped and a new one should be available in about a year.

Unfortunately after a further decade of development it will be discovered that Mills had never actually discovered any form of hydrino, but it was really a highdrino all along. This is an atomic state with no energy producing ability, but instead has psychoactive properties that turn those exposed to it into wastrels and scammers with a bad case of the munchies. The government is preparing a documentary (titled "Hydrino Madness") to warn the public.

Michaelsuede seems to have given up, not having been here since September. I hate it when the woos make a prediction but won't return to face the music. Markie is still here, but no doubt too embarrassed to continue participating.

Oh well. At leat he can console himself with all that bitcoin he hasn't invested in BLP. Lol.

This is the latest from Michael Suede:

Quote:
Presently, BrLP plans to have units in field testing in the 2nd half of 2018, and a commercial launch in the 2nd half of 2019. This is about a 1 year push back from the previously projected market date.
That "1 year push back" isn't quite accurate, as the claim this time last year was:

Quote:
BrLP already has the “light bulb” portion of this generator fully prototyped and working. Obviously that’s the hard part since the rest of the parts for the generator already exist from off-the-shelf suppliers. Mills is projecting production units to be ready for delivery by the second half of 2017, with a fully prototyped working generator ready for field testing by the first half of 2017.
So after a year, it's been pushed back a year and a half.

What's the cut-off point for Suede losing his bet? I forget.

I suddenly feel I can foresee the future:

«Presently, BLP [Blinding Luminescence Power] plans to have units in field testing in the 2nd half of 2019, and a commercial launch in the 2nd half of 2020. This is about a 1 year push back from the previously projected market date.»

You forgot the other element he inadvertently developed, the "Hydraino". This amazing mystery element has the uncompromised ability to suck vast amounts of money from investors bank accounts at an alarming rate, with no hope of any possible returns. The only known natural phenomenon comparable would be the massive Black Hole at the center of the galaxy.

Actually, that sounds more like The Ancient's technology from Stargate. Which included a magical "Zero Point Module" as a power source, so it even fits!

'Installed and independently operating to the satisfaction of the customer' would have to be determined by unambiguous statements from such customers for some significant period following the installation". I'd say we've only really got another 3 months (4, being very generous, or 5 being unbelievably so) until a commercial generator absolutely must be installed in one customer's property in order to allow for a "significant period" (3, 2, or 1 months, respectively, depending on how generous you're feeling) before the cut-off date. Yet Michael himself is now predicting that prototypes won't be field-tested until after the end of the bet, let alone finished units freely available commercially, as per the terms of the wager.

I respect you not emailing him to claim victory for another 6 months, but were you to do so Michael would be in the position of either having to admit he'd lost the bet, or that Mills' latest round of predictions are wrong.

What are you planning to spend the $100 on?

I have lost interest in expending much effort on this scam anymore. The last straw was the "independent scientist" admitting that he never had any hydrinos, ever.

MS himself said, "An updated production timeline was published in the presentation. Presently, BrLP plans to have units in field testing in the 2nd half of 2018, and a commercial launch in the 2nd half of 2019. This is about a 1 year push back from the previously projected market date."

https://www.libertariannews.org/2017...tember-update/

So, yeah. He lost the bet pure and simple and should pay up.

Can I suggest that if he pays up you renew the bet for another $100 on whatever the then predicted timescale is? Judging by history this could be a reliable source of income for you for many years.

Yes, I posted that less than 10 posts before you did. That's why I was asking the question as to when the deadline for the bet was.

If you make future bets to be paid in batteries instead of dollars then you will have created a perpetual source of free energy based on Mills' technology!

I wonder if any bookies would take such a bet.

Whups. My apologies. I'm sure I read your post but I don't know why it didn't register in my mind.

Ah, those would be the seldom discussed urinos.

I’m imagining a movie where three terrorists plan to sneak individual components of a Hydrino generator aboard an aircraft hidden in partially hollowed out laptop batteries. They each take turns using the restroom, hiding the components for the final guy, with the REALLY full bladder, to assemble and detonate his urine.

The day is saved not by the hero, but by a child who startles the terrorist, causing him to piss his pants. He tries to detonate the toilet water, not knowing the chemical that makes it blue inhibits Hydrino formation. He is the only causality and his fellow conspirators are arrested when the aircraft lands.

The news coverage running during the closing credits makes a LOT of lame fart jokes about the damaged bathroom.

Or maybe the terrorist is pee-shy.

Who was that scientist? Do you have a link?

Emails do not have links. Unless one is using a shared facility which I don't.

However, I expect to release the guys name in the fourth quarter of 2018.

Thereafter, I expect to share the emails by the third quarter of 2019.

E&OE, schedule subject to change. No guarantee implicit or implied. By then I will change my mind anyway. And by then the rules will all be different, so try to keep up.
