    Gold bullion accounts

    I think I heard somewhere that you don't have to pay VAT if you don't actually take physical delivery. Goldmoney store it for you, but you don't take delivery in the strict sense of the word.

    Here's an interesting story: Smithsonian Institute 207 Pennsylvania Avenue Washington, DC 20078 Dear Mr. Williams: Thank you for your latest submission to the Institute, labeled 93211-D, layer seven, next to the closeline post..."Hominid skull." We have given this specimen a careful and detailed examination, and regret to inform you that we disagree with your theory that it represents conclusive proof of the presence of Early Man in Charleston County two million ears ago. Rather, it appears that what you have found is the head of a Barbie doll, of the variety that one of our staff, who has small children, believes to be "Malibu Barbie." It is evident that you have given a great deal of thought to the analysis of this specimen, and you may be quite certain that those of us who are familiar with your prior work in the field were loathe to come to contradiction with your findings. However, we do feel that there are a number of physical attributes of the specimen which might have tipped you off to its modern origin: 1. The material is molded plastic. Ancient hominid remains are typically fossilized bone. 2. The cranial capacity of the specimen is approximately 9 cubic centimeters, well below the threshold of even the earliest identified proto-homonids. 3. The dentition pattern evident on the skull is more consistent with the common domesticated dog than it is with the ravenous man-eating Pliocene clams you speculate roamed the wetlands during that time. This latter finding is certainly one of the most intriguing hypotheses you have submitted in your history with this institution, but the evidence seems to weigh rather heavily against it. Without going into too much detail, let us say that: A. The specimen looks like the head of a Barbie doll that a dog has chewed on. B. Clams don't have teeth. It is with feelings tinged with melancholy that we must deny your request to have the specimen carbon-dated. This is partially due to the heavy load our lab must bear in its normal operation, and partly due to carbon-dating's notorious inaccuracy in fossils of recent geologic record. To the best of our knowledge, no Barbie dolls were produced prior to 1956 AD, and carbon-dating is likely to produce wildly inaccurate results. Sadly, we must also deny your request that we approach the National Science Foundation Phlogeny Department with the concept of assigning your specimen the scientific name Australopithecus spiff-arino. Speaking personally, I, for one, fought tenaciously for the acceptance of your proposed taxonomy, but was ultimately voted down because the species name you selected was hyphenated, and didn't really sound like it might be Latin. However, we gladly accept your generous donation of this fascinating specimen to the museum. While it is undoubtedly not a Hominid fossil, it is, nonetheless, yet another riveting example of the great body of work you seem to accumulate here so effortlessly. You should know that our Director has reserved a special shelf in his own office for the display of the specimens you have previously submitted to the Institution, and the entire staff speculates daily on what you will happen upon next in your digs at the site you have discovered in your Newport back yard. We eagerly anticipate your trip to our nation's capital that you proposed in your last letter, and several of us are pressing the Director to pay for it. We are particularly interested in hearing you expand on your theories surrounding the Trans-positating fillifitation of ferrous ions in a structural matrix that makes the excellent juvenile Tyrannosaurus rex femur you recently discovered take on the deceptive appearance of a rusty 9-mm Sears craftsman automotive crescent wrench. Yours in Science, Harvey Rowe Chief curator - antiquities

    I also heard that David Icke had received information about alien anti-gravity technology. Surely a better bet as it has been tried and tested.

    Agree - energy cannot be sped up. Behind any new invention there is an equation, I don't see any here.

    Seconded. He/she multiplies threads and doesn't answer questions directly. Reminds me of a 419 scammer. The evidence: - Claims to have produced a device that, contrary to over a century of physics research, creates energy out of nowhere. - The explanation does not make any reference to any actual findings in terms of the claim. The claim is in terms of energy output but the explanation refers to instantaneous power. This is not rocket science but basic physics. e.g If I stretch an elastic band then release it, I get an instantaneously greater power output than any instantaneous power input that I have made in stretching it. Instantaneous power rather than total energy. This seems the essence of the justification of the claim. - Claimant states they have not, and do not know how to, measure the energy output of the device. - Explanation describes, in extremely sketchy detail, the equipment only. No reference to theory. Would you join forces with someone who claims to be an engineer, yet cannot demonstrate an understanding of the difference between power and energy? This is O level physics. I wouldn't mind if it was a person who was open to discussion, but unfortunately it seems this person is determined to not engage in useful discourse.
  8. Maybe this is the reason why 'you' are Time Magazine's person of the year. A self-serving reference to the company's own interests. Am I too cynical?

    You come across like a scam artist. Nothing you've said has changed that opinion.

    You claim that you have a 'free energy technology breakthrough'. You have not provided evidence that energy has been created by this process, because your statements are all in terms of power. You say you have not measured the total energy output of the device so you don't have any evidence for your claim. The onus is on YOU to prove it. So far you have proven nothing except a lack of understanding of basic physics.

    You haven't proven to yourself that you get more energy out than you put in. The statement "when i convert my electrical engery to kenitic it gains in power" is meaningless. Therefore your claim is incorrect.

    What is the total energy input of your device, and total energy output? In Joules. Not in horsepower or watts. That is power, not energy. You need to integrate the output power curve over time to find the total energy output. Have you done that? How can you expect to be taken you seriously if you demonstrate that you don't understand energy vs power?

    You are confusing energy with power.

    If your invention is so good, patent it, publish your findings in an engineering journal and then come back. Nobody is going to take you seriously, especially given the above explanations which are completely inadequate.

    A completely frictionless mechanism can only ever lose 0% of the energy you put into it. You still can't gain energy. How are you deriving energy from the device? All you've said is that it takes 10 minutes to stop spinning. That sounds like plain old friction to me.

    it could change the worl any suggestions would be great Perhaps if you could explain why the laws of thermodynamics don't apply to your invention.
  22. Very observant! I think I agree with the theory that the person of the year is going to be some sort of target in the next year. It's all a bit perverse. But what message are they trying to convey? An increased freedom from better access to media? That is a bit premature I think. If anything the combination of increased usage of digital rights management and convergence of media and IT is sewing the consumer up more than ever before. Look what convergence of US media did for the level of public awareness of global events! I prefer the 'you're going to get screwed' theory.

    SILVER

    Dec. 15 (Bloomberg) -- BHP Billiton Ltd., the world's biggest mining company, closed its Cannington silver mine after a fatality today. The mine will be closed indefinitely as an investigation takes place, Emma Meade, a spokeswoman for the Melbourne-based company, said today. Cannington, which also produces lead and is based in Australia, is the world's largest silver mine. (no link yet, but will try to find one)
