Repeating does little but convince people that you are an ignorant nut.

That is precicely what you stated, twit.

You are the one lacking in the ability to converse about topics relating
to science. Please, it is obvious you lack the basic knowledge (words)
needed to make your case about anything regarding physics. Thus, I will
simply taunt and ridicule you, as you have nothing else to offer.

I note that you, by omission, admit that you are ignorant on the topic
of gravitation. That is ok, as you share that particular affliction
with at least 90% of the planet. Of course, that 90% is ignorant, while
you are simply stupid and proud of it. *smirk*


> You don't understand gravity. I do.

LOL!!! Hahahahahahahahahahahahaha!

Hahahaha! Time to check and see if you are on Old Man's crackpot
list...... Nope... I am sure you will be soon enough, Crazy-Crank.

Better to be arrogant like me than stupid and willfully ignorant like
yourslef. *snicker*

Especially after the people in the white jackets administer their
thorazine.

> But I can't share it with you.

Oh... of course you cannot... direct word of god is a highly personal
experience I am told.
Go play with your fellow inmates... the one who thinks he is napoleon
might be more receptive to your ramblings that I. *smirk*

Then neither you nor Old Man are very well-informed. CC has been on
Internet crackpot lists for years. Right along with Archie Plutonium
and many others.

Cliff, you really have to forgive 'Old Man' for his snap judgments,
since is is a 'newby' to the net (at least to the sci newsgroups),
hence really doesn't have a clue.

I seriously doubt that in posting his list of 'crackpots', as a
'newby' he justifies holding the position of honor at the head of his
own list! :-)

Is 'Old Man' a 'newbie' to the sci.newsgroups? As best I can tell,
'Old Man' made few if any posts before 2000, and since then his post
consisted largely of vitriolic snipes made at other posters. Hence, he
tends to remind me of the character who in 'Pogo' lived in the log and
specialized in 'free insults.'
[Anybody recall the character's name? Was it Grelber?]

At any rate, in a nutshell that's my perception of 'Old Man'. Someone
with nothing to positive to offer, but critical of everyone who does
not honker down to his rather conventional and pedestrian viewpoints.

I made his 'crackpots' list simply because I would not agree with the
majority opinion that the velocity of gravitational wave propagation
has not been positively established, which it hasn't. I was therefore
honored to make Old Man's crackpot list, an honor equaled only by
making Cagle's Kill File! :-)

I wouldn't even begin to repond to clueless crackpots like Old Man,
because there is too much remaining in life to be accomplished in so
little time, but because I'm snowed in today in Boston I have. Make
the most of it.

I have disagreed with "Old Man" before, but I respect him and his
knowledge of physics. In contrast, Harry Conover is a pretentious
dolt, who is still smarting from being properly identified by
"Old Man" as being a crackpot, a well-deserved appellation for
all on "Old Man's" list.

Like most fools, you honor yourself. You're not in my killfile - I
don't keep such things yet I crave to be in the killfiles of fools like
you. The beauty of being in various killfiles is that such fools will
not see my posts and hence won't go into a frenzy of loon postings when
I write an article. May I be in the kill file of every fool on the
Earth.
