Umm he did the original BL and aliens and Gladiator and Exidus and 2001 and eyes wide shut. I think he has lots of chops!

You didn't think before you replied! I'm a lady!
some of us don't wear pants and it makes it a real pain to dig out our phones (think about this before you respond)
sounds cool. does it work iwht iphone?
I would also question the idea of Haber developing artificial materials using the Haber process.
It made ammonia which is a naturally occurring compound and ammonia made by the Haber Bosch process is identical in all ways to that which is formed by nature.
yes this is the very exact point. Before Haber you had to haul saltpeter across the globe to have the materials you needed to make fertilizer and dynamite. After Haber one could make as much of this stuff as you wanted without needing the natural materials. think of it more as a supply chain problem and solution.
Also there's not really a difference between dynamite and tnt.
nobel's invention was limited because it required naturally-occurring saltpeter. haber developed artificial materials so the quantities were not limited by natural ingredients.
is he dead, or is he just meditating really really hard?
Thank you for the clarification. I think the overall point still stands.
yes it's crazy, no? Nobel invented the process of making TNT, but it required naturally-occuring saltpeter. Haber invented the process to make artificial saltpeter, which meant TNT could be made in a factory without needing to import the saltpeter from overseas. The same german factories that produced nitrogen fertilizer to make food also produced the TNT for war. the intersection of science and society is a weird place!
Fritz Haber was an interesting guy. He won a Nobel Prize for synthesizing ammonia from atmospheric hydrogen and nitrogen. This was the basis of nitrogen-rich fertilizer that basically fed the world by making crop lands more productive. But he also developed the chlorine gas for the german govt and advocated for its use. Two weeks after the first chlorine gas attack his wife killed herself with his service revolver after an argument over its use.

Perhaps you can push for a city ordinance to put all the municipal codes up on the city website. that sounds like a good sunshine law.
