Duke Nukem Forever Release Means EEStor Can Take Forever and Still Might Deliver

One of the things that bothers me (even about myself) is all of the whining and BS surrounding EEStor's obviously L A T E delivery of verifiably working technology.  Well, believers and doubters, keep your tears to yourself because nothing could be worse than promising a simple software game and delivering it 14 years later.   We're talking about energy storage breakthroughs not attempts at incrementally better video games.  Stop sniveling.  In a recent interview with Dick Weir, he purportedly said, "It’s time to kick ass and chew bubblegum…and I’m all out of gum.”  Why does that sound promising to me? Vaporware?

There has been some speculation that LM may have take EESUs into black-budget programs. While there is no evidence to support this notion, The Federation of American Scientists has on its website a chart of how many inventions have been subject to secrecy orders for the past five years. There were 143 such inventions taken out of circulation in this manner this year alone.
