Over a period of MORE THAN TWO YEARS, I have repeatedly tried to engage you in a thorough analysis of this experiment. EVERY TIME, you have done (usually incorrectly) a partial analysis, then declared the subject proved. But it never was. When pressed, you resorted to the same kind of bullshit you have pulled here, with ad-hominem, not-sequiturs, and straw-men. NEVER daring to face the full problem in real detail.

Because you KNOW Latour was correct. And it isn't just him. TEXTBOOKS about practical applications of thermodynamics say so.

You have NEVER, ONCE, tackled the problem head-on. Always a little twist here, a little change there, let's ignore areal exposure to the ambient radiation, ad nauseum. Always weaseling sideways, never quite taking on the task of REFUTING LATOUR, even though that's what you claimed to be doing, with all your misdirection.

Well, I'm going to give you the benefit of the doubt, even though I honestly don't believe you deserve it. I am willing to concede that you really are a Kool-Aid drinker, and can't accept that the dogma isn't what you thought it was. That's preferable to believing that you're simply a malicious lying sonofabitch.

I am fucking well done here.

I'm repeating that, with the quotations done properly, so I can save it for posterity.

No, I said both sides of a thermal superconductor enclosing shell are at 149.6F.

Haha. Here are your words.

At equilibrium, the enclosing shell radiates the same power out as the heated plate did before it was enclosed. But its area is 1.0025 times larger, so its outer temperature is 149.6F (338.5K) instead of 150.0F (338.7K).

A_h*T_h^4 = A_c2*T_c2^4 (Eq. 3)

For the moment, let's pretend the enclosing shell is a thermal superconductor, so its inner temperature is also 149.6F (338.5K). Energy conservation at equilibrium just inside the enclosing shell shows [dumbscientist.com] that the heated sphere will warm to an equilibrium temperature of 233.8F (385.3K)

But its inner temperature ISN'T 149.6F, because it's being heated from the inside, not the outside. You calculate a temperature due to heating on the inside, with its area, then account for a reduced temperature on the outside due to increased area, then try to turn around and say the temperature on the inside is the same as the outside.

I'm not changing a thing. This is the same criticism I gave before (just in more detail). And you're STILL full of shit, you pretender. This is the most ludicrous thing I've heard coming from someone who claims to be a real scientist in years.

I've heard some "doozies", as they say, but it's doubly hilarious that I've pointed this out to you three times, and here you are still trying to defend it, rather than simply saying "Oops, I messed up."

It is A WASTE OF MY TIME to argue with you. You don't learn. I won't do it any more. And I'm going to give a copy of this to my grandchildren.

Oh, Jesus Christ. I actually started to have a serious discussion with you, then you had to obfuscate it and throw n all this other bullshit.

Every goddamned time. I thought we'd actually settle this scientifically, once and for all, but I see that you were never really interested in that anyway. I think other readers (which there WILL be) will conclude the same.

Really sorry if you're dying, but if so (I didn't believe it for a moment) you can go knowing that you abdicated on a chance to prove to the world that you can solve "civilization-paralyzing misinformation".

And I will know that you went exactly as you (from what you have shown me, anyway) deserve: unknown and deservedly so.

I offered to work through this with you reasonably, from start to finish. Even after you have repeatedly demonstrated that I have to reasonable obligation to you, to do so. You have refused.

End of discussion. End of ALL discussions with you, as far as I am concerned. Given that I have often offered to discuss this openly with you, and you have continually refused, then the matter is done. You lose by default because you refuse to lose like a man.

1.6ghz, and AMD.

Even selecting a 4-core CPU at complete random from the $50 to $100 range on newegg, you are still likely to get a better performing CPU. In other words, its difficult to actually own something worse. The reason for this is that the closest desktop APU to the chip that the PS4 uses is only $49.

$49 fucking dollars.

So yes, consoles ship with "such crappy CPUs."

Above poster needs to be modded up. The fastest "duo" in single threaded performance from 2008 is the E8600.

The fastest i7 is only 85% faster at single threaded jobs.
The fastest i5 is only 65% faster at single threaded jobs.
The fastest i3 is only 57% faster at single threaded jobs.
The fastest AMD FX is only 26% faster at single threaded jobs.
The fastest AMD APU is only 18% faster at single threaded jobs.

The cost of the E8600 is $45. forty-five fucking dollars.

Spencer's INITIAL description of his thought experiment. As I have told you several time. This first, then more if you want to get into it. I will not discuss this with you in the other order, AS I HAVE TOLD YOU. Because until you get that right, you're not going to get the other one right. If you continue to argue the other case first, then we are done, and I will write you off as hopeless.

Again, as long as the enclosing shell is nearly the same size as the heated plate, those areas are nearly irrelevant. And because it's a simpler problem (like a tricycle) one should master it before trying to ride a bicycle with complicated view factors. I already specified my areas. Again, neglecting area ratios predicts that the heated plate warms from 150F to 235F after it's enclosed. Accounting for area ratios similar to Earth's predicts that the heated plate warms from 150F to 233.8F.

No "enclosing shell". Two parallel plates. The original thought experiment is two parallel plates (we can make them of equal volume and dimensions just to simplify, but it's not necessary). I repeat: we briefly discussed "even if it were enclosing" but that's a complication of the original, and we'll solve the original first.

What the fuck am I doing? I actually started to solve this for you, after telling you I wouldn't. It must be very late on a Friday night.

Also, I don't think we're assuming black bodies. The best we can realistically do is grey bodies that absorb in all the relevant frequencies under discussion.

What the hell. Anything is better than your "thermal superconductors" that you then claim are different temperatures on different sides. Do you remember that is the second time you tried to pull that? I bet not.

Currently with inflation at 1.5 - 2, the budget should be balanced and taxes moderate.

If you really believe inflation has been at 1.5-2%, you're either a complete loon, or you haven't tried to buy a house lately, or you've totally swallowed the government Kool-Aid.

OR, more likely, you've just been letting the wife buy the groceries and not listen to her complaints about the prices.

For fuck's sake, man, if you knew how CPI was calculated you'd never listen to that BS.

Let's be clear:

You have made it abundantly clear that your interest here is to try to make me look bad. You can pretend you are having an "argument" all you like, but an objective observer can (has, actually) easily see that it is not so.

I have no reason to participate in your game and give you the satisfaction, regardless of the fact that (past evidence shows, and that's another truth) you would lose anyway. I have better things to do with my time.

To put it another way: this isn't worth my time. I will not respond further.

All the city's productivity and investment? Gone, because private companies decided they could just pack their bags and walk away.

And they were right. Once again, the victims get blamed because the city drove them away. All these companies, all those workers, and all that productivity and investment would have stayed if the environment were far less toxic.

I also find it odd how irrelevant the "myths" of your story are to the original poster's assertion. For example, "Detroit will be saved by bankruptcy" is just so totally on topic.

Always draw your curves, then plot your reading.
