    I don't necessarily agree with the assertions stated in number 7.

    I propose an 8th Warning Sign.

    #8. Anything that Dr. Joe says is probably bogus.

    I wished the article hadn't used Pons and Fleischmann as an example of bogus science. What they found has been verified many times, but it's a difficult test and so some don't go the whole nine yards and can't replicate the results. What hasn't been proved is that it's "cold fusion" or what the phenomena is at all, but it is real.

    Another one. If Jack Briggs offers to sell you a time machine, ask for a demonstration first.
