"knallgas," town gas, "common manifold electrolysis" and more. Maybe Thomas Gas 
is the breakthrough which will open the subject up again. It is a bit glib to 
lump it all as fringe science since there could be the same kernel of truth as 
in LENR - which generally leads us back to "dense hydrogen" being involved.

Actually, town gas contained CO along with the hydrogen.  You know, as in 
Gaslight, as in stick your head in the unlit oven to commit suicide.  It was 
made by passing hot steam over coke, resulting in a mixture of CO and hydrogen. 
It was used before natural gas became available in the West.

If anyone is still interested in dense hydrogen, it seems to me the Langmuir 
atomic hydrogen torch should be the main target of investigation. There have 
been a few claims of OU about Langmuir's torch. Some calorimetry seems in order

Am I the only one on this list to make a limelight? It's pretty easy. Apply an 
oxyhydrogen torch to a piece of marble, limestone or sea shell and the calcium 
carbonate is converted to calcium oxide on the spot. The resulting brilliant 
white light is a really beautiful form of illumination. Too bad it's 
impractical for everyday use. A few years ago, I was investigating the spectral 
radiance of limelight to see if there were any lines in the spectrum that 
shouldn't be there. Didn't find any. The muons felt great, though.
