> When somebody sounds like a total fucking crackpot, they almost always are.
At this point, we need to ask if he does indeed sound like a total crackpot.
A crackpot would say: "THIS WORKS! By mechanism xyz, this Definitely works, and you should PAY ME!"
A real scientist would say "Umm, when I do this, it does that. Anybody know why? This doesn't make sense." Then, with enough people saying the same, things get exciting.
The question is, are we the former or the latter? The former sounds like Rossi with his e-cat. The latter sounds like this situation. I think we're just starting to get to the exciting phase; let's hope we get more experiments to confirm what we think is happening is really happening.
