Will, I sincerely hope so

Anything is possible!

That’s pretty much what I said, Will… it is not a form of technology perfected for use; it’s experimental/theoretical. Here:
As of July 2010, the largest experiment by means of magnetic confinement has been the Joint European Torus (JET). In 1997, JET produced a peak of 16.1 megawatts (21,600 hp) of fusion power (65% of input power), with fusion power of over 10 MW (13,000 hp) sustained for over 0.5 sec. Its successor, ITER, was officially announced as part of a seven-country consortium.ITER is designed to produce ten times more fusion power than the power put into the plasma. ITER is currently under construction in Cadarache, France
See, the best run so far only produced 65% of input power… so it produced less power than it required to sustain the half-second run of fusion. Of course, they hope to eventually produce one that makes ten times more power than the requirement to sustain, but that is simply an ideal they hope to achieve; who knows if they have the science to make that happen. They don’t YET, that is clear.

I meant Fusion.
The basic understanding of the process is bombarding two separate hydrogen isotopes together, releasing colossal amounts of energy; the same way our sun burns. You can read more about it around the web. Several reactors are already active throughout the world, though they are currently in research stage.
The only way they’ll be implemented is if our governments stop bargaining with petroleum and all that bullshit, for lack of a better word.

Did you wrote something about Charlie Murphy’s True Hollywood Stories?

I don’t know if you saw Dr. Meme’s somewhat harsh response to your comment about PBS, but I have to say he’s wrong: I’m interested. In particular, I’m curious as to what your approximate age is; I’m nearly 40, and when I was a kid, PBS didn’t have commercials, but I’ve noticed that they’ve had commercials for quite some time, although less than other networks. In addition to that, I’m wondering what your opinion is on the matter. Does it seem wrong for PBS to have commercials? Why or why not? I have my own views, of course, but these comments are only allowed to be so long, and I’m not sure you even care to discuss it.
