Starlite: inventions then and now

Heat based weaponry would be rendered fairly useless, I'd think. The egg demonstration suggests that not only can it withstand ridiculous temperatures, but can insulate against them as well. The egg was still runny yolk inside at the end. So, that means flamethrowers and the like would be much easier to protect against.

Is this finally a conundrum that CAN'T be solved by helicopter theft?

These shady practices by these businesses are just a natural occurrence of the atmosphere we've grown in our current business society. We've spread the message that greed is not only good but is a god to be worshiped, that it is necessary to chase your immediate profit goals without giving a thought to future viability, that businesses in general should have much more of a free reign with "caveat emptor" as the ultimate slogan. Well here you go, businesses are just doing what we've been telling them to do. Trying to step all over a regular guy with an intriguing invention, trying to weasel their way into a slightly higher profit margin rather than just plain honestly invest in a worthwhile venture. The businesses will win, you know. They'll twist some arm of the government or grease enough lobbyist wheels and they'll manage to find a way to screw that guy to the wall and run off laughing with his invention, and then they'll bury every aspect and concept possible with Starlite in patents and sell the material at an incredibly over-inflated price and probably tank the whole venture with mismanagement.
