I have found it interesting to be the main voice of reason responding to Dennis Lee's multi-million dollar effort to get more investment money. I'm drawing ire from all sorts of claimants in cyberspace. I've just finished saying to a seller of "100 mpg magic carburetors," stop arguing with me and just tell me when you can drive a modified car down so that we can test it under the noses of press people.
I've talked to a number of Dennis's dealers who are slowly coming around and are starting to understand "the cost of having not paid attention in Science class." Immediately before writing this article, I was taped by a CNBC camera crew as part of their investigation into Dennis. (They also sounded interested in covering some of PhACT's work on Therapeutic Touch)
On July 12, to commemorate Nikola Tesla's birthday, Dennis held a big open "demonstration of free energy" in North Jersey. What he ended up showing (after long hours of political rhetoric) was a machine that ran for a few seconds. As I have tried desperately to explain to Dennis's hopeful dealers (Who have paid up to $25,000 for the right to distribute free energy machines.), my jumping up high in the air is no more a demonstration of levitation than is Dennis running a generator from a stored energy source for a few seconds. The one impressive thing Dennis has delivered is excuses for not openly proving his claims. These include:
- "Sorry, more bad guys stopped me."
- "Just wait, I'll have something even better next month."
- " . . there, 5 seconds running -- see, it works."
- "Pay no heed to the power cord running up to it."
- "Trust my meters, we have no time for yours."
- "Here's hours of theory, just trust me it works."
- "Can't show it, 'cause someone may steal it."
- "God just told me not to show it after all."
- "I have to solve the nuclear waste problem first."
- "First give me more money."
- "I'll give big business one last chance to join me, because I don't want to destroy the economy."
