??? Must be good drugs over there ...

 "The RSA algorithm was publicly described in 1977 by Ron Rivest, Adi
 Shamir, and Leonard Adleman at MIT; the letters RSA are the initials
 of their surnames, listed in the same order as on the paper."

Or do you want to claim that a way to _break_ RSA ("decryption") is
known but not published (i.e. there's a non-quantum algorythm to
solve "prime factorization").

Over here, impulse is measured in "mass x velocity", neither of which
expresses "heat intensity" (in kelvin?). Care to elaborate?

Cheers and a happy new year
