You seriously think that other sources are free of errors? Newspapers for example??
At least with Wikipedia when errors are found they can be removed.
Also, in any GA/FA quality article there's lots of references; you can actually go to those sources and check stuff.
Just because there's a lot of non GA/FA quality articles in there doesn't make Wikipedia useless, it just means it's still being written.
I mean, Encyclopedia Britannica has been going for more than one century; Wikipedia is only just over a decade old, and is literally a hundred times bigger it covers much, much more; but it's about as reliable as EB.

I agree, I smell bullshit/vaporware.
Getting a large surface area is dead easy. It's getting the heat to spread out evenly over the surface that's hard, so it's all at a similar temperature.
If you haven't done that, then the cooler parts of the surface are partly or mostly wasted.
Normal fins have a specific shape, tapering, where the thick bit conducts the heat to the thinner bits. This sponge shape doesn't do that.
So, it will have 500 times the surface area, but the effective surface area is going to be a tiny, tiny fraction of that.
The way he defines success and failure is framed to say all missile defense fails.
Iron Dome uses a combination of a proximity (radar activited) fuse and fragmentation. Sometimes the interceptor destroys the warhead. Sometimes it causes an explosion of the propellant which destroys the warhead. Sometimes it simply breaks the incoming missile or rocket into segments or destroys its ability to follow its planned ballistic path. According to Lloyd and Postol, if the warhead isn’t destroyed the interceptor failed.
You don’t need a Ph.D. to see the immense flaw in this logic: if someone fires a missile at you and you aren’t hit that is good news.
...to end drug prohibition since at least 1996, on both practical and 10th Amendment grounds. Statists love the "War on Drugs" because it gives them more ways to control people.
Actually, looks like quite thick walls on the pan; so the heat should conduct down to the liquid really quite well; having thick walls avoids that exact problem; and aluminium is a very, very good conductor of heat.
...then sift through it to file tax evasion charges, but somehow keeping email backups for top IRS employees is beyond them because the hard drive crashed and they had to recycle the backup tapes.
Fact check your facts. Your second link's researcher was funded by Bayer
You've discounted one of the linked articles (for a reason I understand but don't entirely agree with). What about the other? Does finding a reason to discount one piece of data allow you to discount all of it, in your opinion?
One word of caution about proclaiming the involvement of these pesticides in bee deaths is recent findings that these pesticides are not found in the reproductive regions of plants:
Here's another study from last year which found no link between pesticides and bee deaths:
It's a popular and appealing story, but recent data suggest that it may not be true!
