Doom 3 was bloody scary, *if* you played it in a dark room and its dark lighting worked well. I played it when i was ironically living in my mother in laws basement. Typically at night when it was pitch black. It was a scary game then. But the maps where a lot more plain and linear than the doom 1 & 2 brethren.

Yes there is. Drag is *ALWAYS* proportional to mass/weight. So no matter what, a plane that gets lighter as it goes will use less "fuel" than one that stays the same weight or worse gains weight. Think of it as a range penalty on electric flight. So batteries would need to be *better* than jet fuel for energy density.

Example: The EM drive. While everyone was skeptical, it was real scenc. It dealt with an area of physics that there wasn't 100% agreement on, there was a written formula, and it was testable.

Absolutely not. It does not have any valid science theory behind it. the experiments show no such force outside errors and noise. And if it works, *IT WOULD BE A OVER UNITY ENERGY DEVICE*. Conservation of momentum and energy are related. They are aspects of the same conservation.
