Hi Bondo,

The long and short of the story is that im a gifted psychic and the powers that be send electricity through my house to disrupt brain patterns; theta, beta etc. please just trust me.
Ayuh,....... I think my fellow Maineiac head the nail on the head,......

The Faraday Cage Effect is probably your Only Defense.........

Unfortunately,.... Lead Foil is no longer available,.....
I don't know if a single or double layer of Aluminum Foil would be enough,.......
Maybe encasing a layer of Aluminum Screen into the layers of Foil will Help,......
If the Foil,+ Screen Hat doesn't work,.....
You might try a jacket/ hood arrangement of the Foil,+ Screen.................


Btw,........ Tell the rest of the Sir Charles Barkley's Five group that I said, Hi..............

Lead foil may not be available, but they do have lead lined copper. Best of both worlds.


Just because you're paranoid, doesn't mean they're not after you...

You see, although you may be allowed to take 60 amperes and your neighbor may be allowed to take 60 amperes (or is it 100?) before your main breaker trips, when all 20 apartment units take 60 amperes apiece at the same time, the master main breaker trips.
Fellas please keep the jokes coming. i also have a sense of humor. if you guys knew anything about consciousness you would know that the gov. does everything they can to keep you on the couch watching tv, and talking about some b.s. topic so you won't find out the many truths that they've been hiding. anyways, ALAN J. you seem to be on the right track. the thing about is when i started getting these strange headaches they would only come from the stove fan, ceiling fan, light switched and power outlets. this past tues. i switched off 1 of the breakers in the wash room then i stood near the previous listed appliances and everything was okay. next day i leave to work and when i come home i felt the same thing but the breaker was switched off. so i turned the entire house off.
what next???
o yeah and keep the jokes coming.

You stood next to the appliances and got a headache with the power on. Then turned the breaker to those appliances off, and stood next to the appliances, and no headache. Then later with the power still off, you stood next to them and got a headache.

It would seem to me that your headaches do not correlate to whether the power is on or off. Maybe you need to look for another explanation for the headaches.

I won't judge whether or not you have psychic powers. But from what you're explaining, I wouldn't draw the conclusion that electricity in your appliances is the cause. And blaming it on the government? That seems a bit trite to me, but hey, maybe I'm brainwashed.

Everyone know that this is true TO A DEGREE. The masses have to be controlled.

You are taking it a step to far and are fast approaching schitzophrenia. Let me guess, Young male early to mid 20's?

Seek help. Sometimes it goes away, sometimes you life becomes hell. I am glad you have a sense of humor though. That shows that you are still in touch with reality..at least a little bit.

Do you have ANY idea how much EMF/ microwaves and sh!t pass thru your brain on a daily basis? It is a wonder that we ALL aren't affected.

Nobody is messing with your electrical stuff, You are just freaking out.

I'm with you on this one, I have felt this way for years, but 220/221 is on the right track.

TRUE!

I had the wife of a friend ask me the replace her wireless router because she did not want the radio waves "crashing" through her body, even though I told her the wireless feature was turned off.
I asked her if she had a cell or cordless phone. He husband just glared at me.


I do a good bit of work in Woodstock, NY. BELIEVE me, I have heard (almost) it ALL!

Face it, we are continuously bombarded by EMF. You're sitting at a monitor that's providing it as well as the TV, cellphones, fluorescent lights, etc.
To take readings, you use a Gaussmeter.

Or in the case of this guy, a fluorescent lamp will do.

Holly crap Duncan that is breakthrough pulitzer prize stuff right there.... high voltage is a huge cost savings after all. I don't now why they didn't let him finish and live in his house. You suppose the poco didn't
like the idea of him having "FREE" lighting.......... Hey come to think of it if everthing is electrified in the house.... that makes it a continuous duty house so now that I think of that he has made the first ' wireless ' house in history. And you don't have to apply the 125% rule.... I want one of those houses!!!!

>>> Now if I could only crank up the temperature of the planet a bit ...

Quick! Do it soon! There's a volcano erupting and it's spewing ash into the upper atmosphere to blot out the sun and we will have nuclear winter. Hope the global warming comes fast enough to mitigate this.

Back to the apartment. They may have put in a 3 phase system so you will need three layers of lead foil to keep the EMF from hitting you from all three directions.

>>> Boston Herald link

Seems like the guy knew all along he was too close to the power lines but wanted to keep it that way so he could have light without connecting up to the power company and paying for kilowatt hours. And the electric company did not want to give him the free power so it asked the town to halt his construction. Would a proper ground fix it? To answer the last question, rent and view the movie "Squirm" starring Don Scardino.

Many years ago I was strolling Nantasket Beach (Boston) and wandered up around WBZ radio's transmitter towers. I could feel the 50,000 watts, mostly in the fine fuzz on my chest. Particularly on the west side facing the lagoon as the station is "directional" that way. I didn't have a fluorescent lamp with me although others have said they got the lamp to glow at a radio transmitter tower.

(In a typical single phase apartment service, everyone gets 120 volt power from Hot A and neutral or Hot B and neutral, and 240 volt power from Hot A and Hot B. In a typical 3 phase system some people will get "240" volt power from Hot A and Hot B, some get it from Hot B and Hot C, and some get it from Hot A and Hot C. There is also another 120 volt source, Hot C and neutral. Considerably more power although not twice as much can be had by just adding Hot C and going to 3 phase and not putting in a fatter wire for Hot A or Hot B or the neutral. There is one change that may or may not be of concern. The "240" volt power is 208 volts. Some but not all household 240 volt appliances work OK on 208 volts.)

Now you're just being silly. Only humans can control the earth's climate. Hasn't Al Gore taught you anything?
