It's amazing how many people repeat this stupid saying thinking it's some kind of intelligent commentary. It's not, it demonstrates complete ignorance both of the complexity of fusion and advances in the physics, material sciences, and more.

Well thanks for clearing that up for us. You've really changed all our minds with the mountain if evidence you've posted. I'm going to stop saying Mars is 20 years away too now.
