Of course your laws of physics work well enough when applied to the
situation they were designed to DESCRIBE.  They didn't start out that
way, as the flat earth theories that held sway in the past clearly
demonstrate.  People were assumed to have developed disease due to
demons casting spells, and the demonstrated relationship between
passing germs from the dirty hands of a physician from one patient to
another was resisted by the establishment just as dropping the flat
earth theory was resisted.  Comfortable theories are clung to, for no
other reason than change, being open to change, requires a momentary
discomfort.  The theories you smugly pronounce are correct were NOT the
theories you smuggly pronounced as correct yesterday, but that doesn't
stop you from making such pronouncements.

Your theory about brown dwarfs exists based on those dwarfs you HAVE
OBSERVED, wherein they had to be large in order to BE observed.  Is it
not possible for there to be something out there that you HAVE NOT
observed?  A composition of a planet not quite in the mix you find in
your Solar System, as you know it to be?  You operate a slow burn in
your nuclear power plants, which otherwise would be the fast burn of a
nuclear explosion that occurs when no braking mechanism is in place. 
Is it entirely impossible for suns to have mixed composition?  For a
slow burn to be in place?  For a planet to have some of the composition
of a sun as well as a composition of a solid planet?  This is simply
not possible, and because you have not observed it, then it does not

Please spare us your current theories about what makes sun's burn, as
you have no more proof of that than you do what the composition of the
core of your very own planet or a proper description of the workings of
the atoms you yourself are composed of.  Your current theories are a
work in process, and if you are honest you will admit that.
