That's just not true

Scientists and engineers have been well aware of thermal expansion long before the 1980's. Case in point...

Have you ever driven over a steel bridge built before 1980? You know that *ka-plunk*, *ka-plunk* sound it makes through your tires? Those are literally called "expansion joints" based on a firm grasp of the concept of increased volume of matter in correlation with rising temperature (i.e. thermal expansion).

If men are good, you don't need government; if men are evil or ambivalent, you don't dare have one.
