The water car fraud

37

Agha Waqar Ahmad deserves a medal from the people of Pakistan for his great service to the nation. In a few short days, he has exposed just how far Pakistan has fallen into the pit of ignorance and self-delusion. No practical joker could have demonstrated more dramatically the true nature of our country’s political leaders, popular TV anchors and famed scientists.


At first, it sounded like a joke: a self-styled engineer, trained in Khairpur’s polytechnic institute, claims to have invented a ‘water kit’ enabling any car to run on water alone. It didn’t matter that the rest of world couldn’t extract energy from water; he had done it. He promised a new Pakistan with limitless energy, no need for petrol or gas, and no more loadshedding. For an energy starved nation, it is a vision of paradise.

Agha Waqar Ahmad is now a national celebrity thanks to Religious Affairs Minister Khursheed Shah. Federal ministers Mir Hazar Khan Bijarani and Qamar Zaman Kaira have added their commendations. President Asif Ali Zardari has expressed his delight. The cabinet has met three times to discuss the water vehicle, and a fourth meeting is scheduled. Reports suggest millions may be spent on the ‘water fuel kit project’.

The media has rushed in to celebrate the new national hero. For TV anchor Talat Husain, thanks to Agha Waqar Ahmad’s invention, Pakistan’s image can go from a country ravaged by terrorism to one of boundless possibilities. Anchor Hamid Mir and Senator Parvaiz Rasheed drove around Islamabad sitting next to the inventor, wondering how to protect the man’s life from Western oil companies. Anchor Arshad Sharif was euphoric about the $14 billion Pakistan would save on oil imports.

  1. Yeah – this from the caliber of scientists who brought the bomb to Pakistan. Perhaps this guy should sell them the kit to convert all their convention munitions into super weapons powered by pure water – India would be falling over themselves with laughter along with the rest of the world.

    “There’s one born every minute”.

  2.  There was a law once, that ‘earth is flat’ and we all believed in it, like we believe now in law of thermodynamics. Science is how we perceive and laws are how we satisfy our observations. They tend to change with era, so be open to ideas – and at least try to get the theory out of him? Yes, it sounds dumb, but earth is round sounds dumb, isn’t it?

     
    From the comments at OP link……with the most reader recommends at 217. If nothing else, you have to laugh.

    I’m liking the homoeopathic fuel idea though SC, it opens boundless possibilities for further applications of homoeopathy. Replacing conventional armaments with ‘water pistols’ and ‘super soakers’ might be an ideal place to start.

  3. This isn’t anything new. I knew someone who installed this ‘Brown’s gas’ nonsense in his 4WD vehicle, and claimed a 30% decrease in fuel consumption. The vehicle’s battery split up water into hydrogen and oxygen. The hydrogen was then fed into the engine, Two years later, I met him again, and asked about the system. ‘It didn’t actually work’ he said.

    What religious affair minister has to do with Water Car technology? Is
    he believing water miraculously turning into fuel inside the holy kit?

    Have you not heard of Quoranic science???  It is Pakistan!

    Perhaps they should have read this thread! – Para-naturalistic theories cannot lead to practical engineering – http://richarddawkins.net/disc

  5. Unless I’m mistaken, it was Pervez Hoodbhoy who reported a few years ago that “Physicist” at Tehran “university” were studying the temperature of hell; as well as that a female student had had acid thrown in her face for some reason.
     
    But we mustn’t be critical; it’s their culture and we can’t comprehend its finer points.

  6. Well, we really shouldn’t crow. It would seem that apart from Dr. Judy Wood, B.S M.S.,Ph.D there were very few scientists around the world who noticed that the World Trade Center Towers and surrounding buildings did not “collapse” on 9/11 but were in fact “Dustified” . For an example of true scientific investigation at work,  her book, “Where did the Towers go ? Evidence of Directed Free-Energy Technology on 9/11″ is a masterpiece. 

  7. Would it make a difference if Christian holy water were substituted for ordinary water?

    I mean, I know homeopathy is BS, but holy water is like 90 percent Jesus. You should be able to get to Saturn on about a thimbleful.

  8. ” It would seem that apart from Dr. Judy Wood, B.S M.S.,Ph.D there were very few scientists around the world who noticed that the World Trade Center Towers and surrounding buildings did not “collapse” on 9/11 but were in fact “Dustified” .

    I detect the distinct whiff of bovine excrement. Seriously, anyone who thinks the twin towers were zapped by some secret zero point energy device has their head so far up their ass it is stuck in their neck !

  9. The highly respected engine tuner David Vizard commented in his book on tuning the Ford SOHC engine that it is “important to remember that water does not burn” when commenting upon water injection as a means of dealing with detonation in the combustion chamber.
    100% water….. it will not burn.
    100% holy water ….. it will not burn i the most holy of not burning way.

     

  10. The Stanley Steamer was in production from 1902-1924. The company went belly-up for many reasons, but mainly because of increasing speed limits throughout the country. They just couldn’t figure out a way to make those things go faster than around 20 mph.

    Just a thought: If you put water in the fuel tank, does that mean you need to put gasoline in the radiator? Ba-da-boom.

  11. The Stanley Steamer was a car powered by a conventional reciprocating steam engine, with a boiler fuelled by kerosene or gasoline.  Water/steam is the working fluid, but definitely not the source of energy.

  12. Technically there are many ways to run a car on water. So as long as his kit contains a proton-proton fusion reactor, or a fantastical catalyst for splitting water, or just a very small solar panel and a way to collect the hydrogen from electrolysis… Yes it can be done. Just don’t hold your breath that this joker had manager to crack it.

    Meanwhile there are ways that water can reduce fuel usage by up to 40%, in a six stroke engine, but that’s en entirely different matter.

  13. The understanding of physics by the general public is very low. Not only in Pakistan. All over the world. A few days ago I was on a biking trip with some friends. One rode a bike powered by an electric battery. He wondered why they equipped the bikes not with a dynamo so that you could reload the battery while riding. And the man was a retired salesman of electric appliances.

  14.  Nope that is the homeopathic remedy for cars that don’t move and engines that don’t do anything.

    Remember, like cures like, so what you do is find something that causes cars to not move and dilute that. 

    So cement for example.

    Then dilute the cement solution until it is chemically indistinguishable from your fuelness water and that should work.  Err, well ok it only works when I am allowed to cheat, but that is because you need to treat each car as an individual and the oil companies are suppressing me. ;)

  15. Reading about this article in the internet, this was one of the funniest comment i came across-
    ” Why are people whining that laws of thermodynamics cannot be violated? Tell me one law that has not been violated in Pakistan”

  16. I wonder if he has claimed that he obtained this from a conversation with Allah?
    The fact that he was not ridiculed for fraud at the onset of his claim indicates that there is a distinct lack of scientific knowledge in Pakiland.
    The fact that they are able to construct nuclear weapons is a sure sign that they represent a clear and present danger.

    The Stanley Steamer
    was in production from 1902-1924. The company went belly-up for many
    reasons, but mainly because of increasing speed limits throughout the
    country. They just couldn’t figure out a way to make those things go
    faster than around 20 mph.

    I do not think this speed is correct for this car, although steam wagons and traction engines with a different type of boiler were slow.

    A Stanley Steamer set the world record for the fastest mile in an
    automobile (28.2 seconds) in 1906. This record was not broken by any
    automobile until 1911, although Glen Curtiss beat the record in 1907 with a V-8 powered motorcycle at 136 mph (219 km/h).

    I think the serious problems, were a lack of competitive performance on price and convenience, and the blinding clouds of steam they produced on the roads.

  18. AQ Khan did much worse than that I thought. Besides enabling Pakistan to waste billions of dollars on nuclear weapons he also helped other countries that don’t follow the UN IAEA process such as North Korea get nukes as well.
