Question

Asked by: Nitro
Subject: an academic book on quackery?
Question: Dear Nate,

Re yours of 17th Aug 2020

I got the Kindle version ‘cos it’s cheap (you can take the Scot out of Scotland but you cannot ..... Ask Sandy!) and unless the hard back copy has original drawings by Leonardo I think I made a good choice. Dennis Allen Jr seems to be more adept at spreading religious nuttery than scientific truth and confirmed the late great debunker of flim flamers James Randi’s belief that if you want to fool anyone easily with quackery go for an academic. The dam book is not worthy of use as toilet paper – especially so as I got the kindle edition. Oh! My poor asteroids.

Seriously! Anyone on this site has better understanding of the subject of inertial propulsion – even the persistent nutters like me – don’t waste your money.

Love and laughter guys (and gals – Ha! As if you’d find a Gal here)

PS Nate, why are we to “Wake up!”

 Hi Nitro,
Glad to see that the forum seems still to be alive. :-)
I read some other pblications from Nr. Allen on the researchgate page. After reading this:

https://www.researchgate.net/publication/292976877_An_Elementary_Explanation_of_the_Famous_Eric_Laithwaite_Royal_Society_42_lb_Gyroscope_Over_the_Head_With_One_Hand_Demonstration_that_Led_to_His_Being_Ostracized_by_the_United_Kingdom_Physics_Elite

I have serious doubts if he really understand gyro behaviour... I have no idea what he is talking about in this publication!? Maybe I‘m too dumb for this academic matter...

 Hi yourself Harry

The forum is gasping a bit but still alive. I don’t think there is much development in the public domain – Woopy has been diverted to other areas it seems.

I’m glad to hear from you and, indeed, anyone who has survived/avoided/recovered from this dammed Chinese warfare virus. It killed my brother Ag recently and like all us mad inventors and searchers for truth he was in the middle of his next development of “Jade Warrior”. Ag was helping me with some of the more troubling engineering aspects of my next machine so his death is a sad loss for my family, combustion technology and gyrodynamics all at once.

I am sure Dennis Allen Junior hasn’t a clue about gyro behaviour – he has avoided the subject and waffles on along the dead end street of angle, pivoted, tilted pendulums - and if anyone is dumb, Harry, you can relax as it won’t be you.

Keep safe
kind regards
NM

 Right on men. I got a free read and skimmed over it. I found nothing of consequence related to gyroscopes. It is a little book filled with name-dropping of impressive people without any connection or conclusion of any apparent purpose.
It takes a lot of energy to write a book. I would have sympathy for the man’s effort and failure but for his promise that deviates from the billing and claims.
It is a sad joke on first him, and next on any poor guy’s wasted two-dollar buy.

I am sorry Nitro about your brother. The Prince of Pease will give you healing beyond all understanding.

 Guys,
I hadn't read it when I posted.

It IS garbage.

MY APOLOGIES.
