Again we will applaud when the results are replicated and shown....

The thing about real science is that it doesn't require faith. You don't have to believe in, say, quantum tunnelling, because oft-replicated experimental data confirms it and NOR flash memory couldn't be erased without it.

Here we see BLP preparing to recycle their old excuse from the failed heater. Remember, their excuse last time, when one was offered, was waiting on third party components from another manufacturer, a housing I believe.

The more outside companies they involve, the more avenues for delay they create. Add in claims of binding contracts and advance payments and you have a powerful new fundraising excuse without needing to reboot the tech claims again. A line similar to "We can't replace $FOO as the $WIDGET manufacturer because we don't have the funds to pay a new potential vendor all the necessary setup costs," can elicit more funds from established and new investors.

You've invented an over-unity humor device! Spun correctly that should be worth a few million and investors will just laugh off the loss! :

Now for future crow eaters:

Potted Crow:

6 crows
3 bacon slices
stuffing of your choice
1 diced carrot
1 diced onion
chopped parsley
hot water or stock
1/4 cup shortening
1/4 cup flour
buttered toast

Clean and dress crows; stuff and place them upright in stew-pan on the slices of bacon. Add the carrot, onion and a little parsley, and cover with boiling water or stock.
Cover the pot and let simmer for 2-3 hours, or until tender, adding boiling water or stock when necessary.
Make a sauce of the shortening and flour and 2 cups of the stock remaining in the pan.

Serve each crow on a thin slice of moistened toast, and pour gravy over all.

Other WWII crow recipes: http://bertc.com/subfive/recipes/threecrows.htm

Note: In the 1930's when my father was going to college he had little money but did have a 22 LR and shot possums, squirrel and crow plus a number of other beasts available in Arkansas at the time. As he said, 'anything I could boil'. He declared them eatable but not outstanding he preferred pigeon and other smaller birds which he caught in snares and boiled and ate whole.

Bacon? Isn't that cheating?

Bacon is never cheating. If Mills used bacon to power his reactor, it would be legit.

What CHEATING the bacon is there to kill the taste of the darn crow.

For a true treat try crow tartare with extra feathers on the side with a nest salad.
