One of the problems we have with the Internet is sometimes what we write is misconstrued, especially the tone. And also it can enable people to present a side of themselves they would not normally.

A few years back we ran a competition, some where is it picture and some accompanying text. Glenda asked if the text was a clue. I with great wit, wrote back that no it wasn't and it was just some random text placed there without purpose. Glenda wrote back that she was leaving the Board and fuck you Paul (or similar!). That cost me a phonecall to Australia to sort that problem out.

For me I'm happy to give people shit, but only friends who give me shit too. We can do this because we like each other. Aussies, Kiwis, some Europeans and British and Irish live for this. This is in our culture. If its not in someone's culture, then it's highly offensive and I would never do it.

Thanks, Paul

As ever, you are the soul of tact and discretion.

Perhaps you should have a Sexyloops cotillion to aid those who lack our social graces.

Thanks. Yep, I already had the Mosser and Buchman paper, I just didn't know which paper you were talking about. :)

Anyway I have read it again.
Isn't it funny what the paper states?

The principal physical laws involved are conservation of energy and conservation of momentum.

Buchman is a doctor in engineering, maybe he copy&pasted his Ph.D. work to get his title?

Yes I read that. That's why I would like to get this paper in a public place so that we can discuss it, because at the moment the discussions are all over the place. At least here is a paper that attempts to lay it all out. Hopefully this way the discussion can be constructive. Lasse is asking. I guess an alternative is for me put the article in a private library and give members a password?

Cheers, Paul

Discuss it? You mean posting without taking notice of previous posts and refusing to watch the visual material provided? :asleep:

That wasn't quite what I had in mind!

That has been the usual way of debating in the last years, I don't see why it is going to change now.

I think one of the problems is I've just let the physicists and engineers get on with it. But that's obviously not working too well and sides have been drawn, which is not very constructive. So I'm trying to find ways we can change that. There are lots of very smart and knowledgeable people here but I don't like - and no one involved appears to like - the undercurrent that exists. So I'm going to bring a bit of order here.

Cheers, Paul
