See above. It's just what a young, wide-eyed, idealistic physicist in-training should be fascinated by. (and no, it doesn't 'defy the laws of physics'.)
I understand inertial propulsion, i'm slightly insulted that you assumed I had never previously learned of it. It's not all that fascinating to me either, but that's just because i'm more interested in the universe than physics itself.
also, i do still believe that every action has a reaction and every cause has an effect - so i'd be more than happy to debate that last bit with you.
