Not classified and hasn't produced a Thing

Not classified and hasn't produced a Thing

This folks is a joke. It appeared in the Modesto Bee brought over to me by a neighbor. He was laughing and after I read the article so was I. NIF needs to stay the hell out of the newspapers until the actually do something useful for the nation instead of trying to get funds by lying to the press. Things like this are going to bite them in the ass cause people that know are going to tell the truth.

You don't get it do you. - " This topic is boring. Lets talk about something coming down the pipeline, like laser EoS. Now THAT is unmutable" -- no body GAF about laser EoS or if NIF ever works. They all know it's just a toy for the scientist to keep their jobs at the tax payers expense. Geee. Someday may the lab will get a project that will actually make a difference in society immediately.

I hate to break it to you....laser EoS and ignition topics get posting and readership levels that are off the charts. Even ssvsp and furlough threads come behind NIF related threads. That's because EoS and strength are topics relevant to all 3 NNSA labs and NNSA and congressional staffers and advisors read them. Ignition is of great interest to those working on magnetic fusion energy. Also the media get hints and leads from here. Scooby needs to somehow monetize the blog. And lab management reads these threads too.

You keep saying that nobody cares, but NNSA and the 3 labs care. The media writes about it so they know there is an audience for it. What is your point? All I have to do is find a few people who care to nullify your point. Are you just trying to stop embarrassing lab news from leaking out? If so you're actually encouraging it. And it's more than being about white collar welfare. Read d2 EoS to see what I mean. The lab had never recovered from that fiasco. The question on all of our minds is how will it all end? An even bigger lie? Avoidance? Coming clear and asking for a second chance? Laser EoS needs a resolution.

That reminds me of "the Truman Show" starring Jim Carrey where people are wearing the button that asks "how will it end?" It's pure human nature to wait until there is a conclusion. And that anticipation just keeps building up. NIF, ignition, EoS, the lab, the budget, the bay bridge construction problems... LLNL has everything they have been asking for.... Our undivided attention...

Another example of not classified and hasn't produced a thing:

The Sandia article says: " Timothy Shepodd (8223) liked the moniker and agreed to call it the “chili cookoff.” But there was no chili involved, and the only “cooking” had to do with the kind of chemicals not usually found on Sandia grounds. "

A google search on that Tim Shepodd guy at Sandia shows quite a lot of silly and nonsense things on the internet

Haha! That's too funny!
