'[OT] Cold fusion tomorrow, in Italy!'

Most of us just find it hard to believe that cold fusion was achieved under the given circumstances, and some healthy humor never did any harm.

A long time ago someone found that a stone could be used to point to the north star even when it could not be seen. I'm sure many people didn't belive it because they couldn't get their stones to do the same.
I'm not saying this isn't a scam but wouldn't it be nice if all the energy that is being expended on ridicule were actually redirected to actually thinking about ways it could be made to work.
There are still lots of different types of magic stones remaining to be discovered. Just remember, the alchemist of today is the scientist of tomorrow.
Copied from another forum:
"I think the likelihood of fraud is vanishingly small. There is no way you could fool the professors involved in this, and I am sure they are not all engaged in a conspiracy to fool the rest of us."
I think all those involved in any way with this demo are keenly aware of the consequences... it would be career suicide and ridicule if they failed. After what happened to F&P, I highly doubt any of them would take that kind of chance with their own careers. In fact, if I were one of them, I would require proof before I would agree to even consider helping with the demo... so they probably have seen enough of its operation to satisfy their minds that this is real... time will tell! ;-)

> ... . After what happened to F&P,
I haven't checked really recently, but when I did a quick run around
the cold fusion sites and papers etc perhaps one to two years ago it
seemed that F&P were still hard at it and they and others were being
funded by big corporations to continue their research.
Which may or may not prove anything about the science but is liable to
tell you something about human nature at all levels :-).
FWIW - I think CF in all its usual conceptions is very likely non
existent BUT I'd very very very much love to find that this was not

Wish normal fusion be conducted, of course, but when not allowed,
then, probably, rubbing to stick together will be the closest
