Scalar Weapons? Fact or Fiction?
Dayle, I typed "meteorologist Scott Stevens" into Google and came up with nothing except a few links to that same article. I typed my local meteorologists name in, even accidentally misspelled it, and Google corrected the spelling and linked his TV station's weather page. Doesn't bode well for Mr. Stevens' existence.
And as much as I've (and others on Bad Astronomy.com) have tried, we have yet to hear any explanation of what a "scalar weapon" is even supposed to be. Great jokes though: its a weapon with a magnitude but no direction, a weapon that can't be aimed, etc.
