From reading the cached article it claims that Minkowsky won in that as the above poster cites that the photon momentum is proportional to the index of refraction "n". However, if that is true then wouldn't the substance move in the opposite direction of motion of the photon to conserve total momentum since the photon momentum is increasing since the index goes from 1 to >1 ?
This is opposite from what the fine article claims.
Now you're griping because some other insurance company doesn't want to pick up a pre-existing condition. Why should they? It was your choice not to have health insurance. They're under no obligation. Would you buy a used car or house with serious problems? No, so why expect someone else pay the cost for your own choice.
