[Stewart at SDI] Ultimatum for Stewart Davies

Postby Darth Wong » 2004-03-23 03:33am

Stewart, you have repeatedly claimed that it is impossible for the Death Star to dump its waste heat, when it is in fact a simple matter of numbers. With an arbitrarily low inefficiency for the turbolaser assembly, the numbers can easily be rationalized. For example, if the efficiency is (1-1E-20), then the Death Star can easily dissipate the waste heat from a 2.4E32 J blast with a mere 30 W/m^2 surface radiation intensity. Similarly, a 1E38 J blast could be dissipated similarly if efficiency is (1-1E-26), all without taking the presence of active heat dissipation systems into effect.

Now, I have produced the numbers you demanded. They may be technologically infeasible, but they are not scientifically impossible. YOU HAVE CLAIMED THAT YOUR ALTERNATE THEORY IS FEASIBLE. THIS MEANS YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO PRODUCE CALCULATIONS SHOWING THIS TO BE THE CASE, OTHERWISE YOU HAVE BEEN LYING THE WHOLE TIME AND YOU ACTUALLY HAVE NO IDEA WHETHER IT IS FEASIBLE OR EVEN SCIENTIFICALLY POSSIBLE.

So, YOU HAVE 24 HOURS TO PRODUCE CALCULATIONS SHOWING THAT YOUR ALTERNATE MECHANISM IS SCIENTIFICALLY POSSIBLE AND WOULD REQUIRE LESS ACTIVATION ENERGY THAN THE CONVENTIONAL ONE.

We're all tired of your bullshit, Stewart. You claim to be a nuclear weapons expert, and tout this totally unverified and heretofore completely unsubstantiated "expertise" at every opportunity. You now have 24 hours to prove it. Let's see those calculations, shithead.

No answer yet, eh? We're almost halfway to the deadline, Stewart. And by the way, you'd better not pull the moronic Stilgar trick of calculating the output of the reaction and ignoring the question of how much energy it takes to make it happen in the first place.

You've been claiming "nuclear weapons expertise" without ever demonstrating a shred of knowledge that anyone couldn't get from Google; well now you're being forced to either put up or shut the fuck up. What's it going to be, Stewart?

He's been posting, but he seems to be ignoring your threat. I guess he must figure you are either bluffing or not serious in your demand.

Maybe we should start a list of trolls who ignored Wong's warning. But then, that would include most of them. :?

Have a very nice day.

Half an hour left, Stewart. WHERE ARE THOSE CALCULATIONS, MR. NUCLEAR WEAPONS EXPERT? DON'T HAVE THE BALLS TO ADMIT YOU WERE LYING?

What's most amazing is that most of them E-mail me after the ultimatum passes, whining that I had no right to follow through on my ultimatum and that I should let them back in.

Goodbye, Stewtard. I'm not surprised at all that you couldn't come up with a single calculation to back up any of your claims. In the end, you made it very clear that any numbers on your part were pure conjecture, and that any claims on your part were pure bullshit. How long did you think you could get away with claiming advanced technical expertise without knowing how to do any of the calculations behind your numbers, moron?

You're gone. Don't let the door hit your ass on the way out.
For a time, I considered sparing your wretched little planet Cybertron.

Just out of curiosity, are you going to give him any sort of grace period to see that he's been banned, or are you going to let the 'Forbidden' message stand for itself?

Hmm, guess that wraps it up for Stewpid. At least he was a bit more entertaining than some of our recent guest idiots here at SDN.

Indeed, if calcs were part of a begging-to-come-back email, I'd see no reason not to let him back in.

I am, of course, holding my breath waiting for these calculations. Because believe me, I'm sure Stewie indeed calculated all of these things, but since he is only the SDI Dean of Technology, he had trouble inputting them into the computer or scanning them off of a piece of paper.

Don't worry Stewie, some of us still have faith in you!

he may not even be able to work your average scientific calculator. if he can't figure out a scanner to work, there's no way in hell he'd be able to figure out one of those.
