I used QuantumCell earlier, but I don't think that will be it.

I think he's got to revamp soon.
I'll go with

Is it wrong to believe Santa Claus has a better chance of delivering a SunCell than Mills does?

Well, there is far more evidence for the existence of Santa Claus than there is for the existence of the Hydrino.

Do you think if we combined the Magic of Santa Claus with the Mystery of the Hydrino we could crank out a Rankin/Bass quality musical Christmas special staring a stop motion snowman version of Justin Bieber in time for Black Friday?

Nope, Hydrino is trademarked, so all we'd be doing is inadvertently funding BLP after they sue us into oblivion.

So we just change "Hydrino" to something even funnier. Hydroxo?

Last time I checked in on this thread was probably about 18 months ago, and BLP were going to market with a product within the year.

So, can we buy anything yet? Surely we can?

You can buy into the claim that the latest delay was completely unpredictable, and merely the result of unforeseen difficulties in implementing the technology.

Ah, good. Just like the perpetual motion guy who's got it all working and will head to market just as soon as he sorts out this 'little friction problem'.

Blessed are those who :

- have more patience than a toddler
- are not intellectually disabled by pathological scepticism and subservience to received dogma, and
- understand the potential value of hydrino technology

Yeah I'm blessed.

That toddler is now in their 30s, has a spouse and 2 kids. And still gets their power from the grid.

Sure and I like the link too. The better the product, the longer we can wait. In this case a practically limitless energy source means we have a practically limitless wait in store for us. ... And that's exactly how long it will take to develop the technology... forever.

We should call it the 'onirdyh', the word backwards, pronounced On ee drill, something that moves backward while proclaiming it's just about to arrive.
