Technically a fusion tube would fuse anything fusable. Fusion is not the same as combustion/burning. :csmini:

A fusion tube would also be useless for any unkown element, because only elements lighter than iron release energy through fusion.

Ah well you do have a point there, I guess I should have said Fuse not burning, sorry I am a firefighter so everything for me is burning or otherwise, haha.

In order to not mess up anymore, I brought my book out for the game, "..fusion tube. These systems are efficient, well-understood ,and can use almost any liquid or gas as reaction mass. ...based upon the improved understanding of sub-atomic physics.."

Granted this game universe is set in the 62nd century so it is a bit farther away than star trek, even though star trek has warp fields with antimatter and antimatter in the heavy gear universe is far and few inbetween for both weapons and fuel.
Far as real life physics you are correct, though I must admitt I do not remember a lot of my chemistry from highschool or college. :oops:

Who is the biggest geek here? Not that this is really on topic, but it's close enough

I dunno... But I submit my 100+ SW EU book collection, 3+ copies of SW on DVD and Video, 6 seasons of Stargate (2 SG1, 2 SGA, 2 SGU), all three Stargate movies, parts to all four seasons on the new BSG, about half the Star Trek Movies (And I have a sister who has the rest of them, plus all the seasons to TNG, TOS, and Voyager) and to top it all off, I have LotR, complete with the Hobbit, Silmirillion and Unfinished Tales. And soon to have some Doctor Who.

Oh, and my Lego collection. :D

I am a librarian at a science & tech university; a Lego builder since age 3; I've built and programmed computers; know the basics of welding and karate; am an avid board gamer; have done design and development for both the Star Wars and Star Trek CCGs; own copies of both "Dune" miniseries, all 6 Star Wars movies, Darron Aronofsky's "Pi," and the entire run of the new Battlestar Galactica; use "!" to mean "not" in everyday correspondence; and have a not-insignificant collection of fiction by authors such as Asimov, Neal Stephenson, William Gibson, Heinlein, and Bradbury as well as a number of "Star Wars" novels.

I may not win, but I like to think I'm in the running. There are many types of geeks, but when we overlap (like we Lego nerds here) we can celebrate that culture together!

I've got around 1100 dvd's laying around, which of most are scifi. Some so bad, that they are good... Series not a whole lot, just to some up a few which I watched recently; The Fringe, Star Trek Fan Collective, Battlestar Gallactica, Firefly and some more I guess around 20 boxes or so.

Some viewing reccomendations to those who are interested; Space Above and Beyond, Pandorum, Dante 01, Impostor, Sunshine, Moon, Cargo, Chrysalis. And I must say I was surprised by the movie Priest, though I ain't a big vampire fan. But I like dystopian movies. :)

Karate and welding? Sweet, I am workin on my brown belt in Shou Shu and I can weld, but my wife is a way better welder than I am since she used to do it for a living.

You have way more videos than I do, but I have a rather large bookcase (say 5 feet tall by 5 feet wide) of nothing but my roleplaying books from star wars, D&D, Heavy Gear, and various others.
Rock on fellow nerds! (i am also a big heavy metal fan)
