      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Maybe he wanted fame or fortune?

 

As for not getting caught, the downside of academia is there is such pressure for getting new results, and little work is being done verifying existing results or building them into something suitable for industry. Many papers are accepted each year that have false statements or irreproducible results.

indeed, hardly the first famous fraud in science - now if only the north koreans are as succesful in producing nukes!!!

Cold Fusion was the last good Warren Miller film.

There ever was such a thing? I always thought the last good Warren Miller was before you personally got tired of his 55 year old schtick - because he's been doing the same f'ing thing since 1950.
