  Wrong.  What was said was what is "possible".  Nothing more, and
nothing less.

  After that, you repeatedly attempted to steer the conversation toward
what is practical and productive, over and over, and I have said "no"
each time.

  No.  I wanna, but I'm working three contracts right now and don't
really have the time to put into it.  If anyone here would like to
explore it further, I will provide access to my lab for that purpose,
which includes all of the equipment necessary to research this topic
exhaustively.  The only thing I don't have is X-ray crystallography
equipment to examine the lattice, but if we have to go that far, we can
probably rent that.

  But further, I never even actually said "if I wanna".  I said, as I
keep explaining, over and over, that "it is possible".

  Now that I've clarified this yet again, can we drop it?
