TOPICS: 

If
you know exactly what you are going to do, what is the point of doing
it? Pablo
Picasso Every line in your calculations ends with "=0". You are not making much progress! Kate Hammett We don't do the calculation because we don't know the answer, we do it because we have a conscience. Bryan Taylor Let's change the resolution on the Unknown. Gabe Plunk Let me put it differently: suppose we had a reactor... Per Helander Working together takes more than one person. Bill Dorland We can't do ultraviolence to that square bracket. Ian Abel Field lines are forever. Bryan Taylor This is not really an illposed problem, this is not a problem at all. Paul Dellar I am just doing mathematics at the moment, but it is mathematics that has some point. Bryan Taylor The equivalent of God in MAST is MHD, which is global and all powerful. Anthony Field I've got a fishbone coming up. Tim Horbury We have crossed all the i's and dotted all the t's. Job's a good'un. Ian Abel Let us not jump in front of the bandwagon! Anonymous It's not the triviality, it's the emptiness of it that bothers me. Bryan Taylor This is a very inefficient way of achieving nothing. François Rincon We Hankel all the way in and then Hankel all the way out. Joseph Parker  It is
better to be roughly right than precisely wrong. Maynard
Keynes For the sake of fairness, let me mention that some people have objections to this, none of which are particularly valid. Chris Chen Yes, Steve, you have always known what we have only just figured out. Alfred Mallet This is more or less right. Perhaps less. Alfred Mallet You go ahead with your argument. I'll think. Steve Cowley Too simple? At the end of my talk, you will beg for simplicity! Andrey Beresnyak The point is not the point! Anonymous This is why I am presenting this here and nowhere else: nothing is solved! Ian Abel This calculation is not intellectual masturbation: there's no orgasm. Anonymous There are many big Buts here... I like big Buts. Anonymous Previous studies of this problem have been either unsatisfactory or limited in scope.What is the difference between these?This means either wrong or irrelevant. Anatoly Spitkovsky, Michael Medvedev and Steve Cowley (in conversation) I don't give a damn about astrophysics, explain to me what is going on. Anatoly Spitkovsky Have you subtracted the baby with the bathwater? Steve Balbus EDQNM is not rigour, unless you mean rigor mortis. Ian Abel I wouldn't say these are theoretical arguments... I would call them arguments. François Rincon
