LAHORE: I made a power point presentation to explain my friends why this so-called ‘water car’ will not work. Many of my friends, all fellow engineers, presented verbal certifications from ‘national heroes’ as argument against the logic I presented and against the laws of thermodynamics. This raises serious questions about the standard of education we have in Pakistan.
What is even more disturbing is how so many senior scientists, including the current head of the PCSIR, seem to have fallen for this hoax and believe what the man is claiming. This, in fact, means that the educational qualifications of these senior scientists, in positions of authority, are themselves questionable.
