I'm eventually going to take 6 months off from buying new games and just work my way through some of the catalog of games Gametap has.  It's really a pretty awesome selection.

Doing that right now myself.. No game purchases planned until fall.

People should not be allowed to drive while talking on a cell phone, hands free or not, if it is so important to make a call, pull off to the side of the road. 

Sour grapes.

Statistically speaking cell phone related accidents are just a tiny percentage of accidents.

Statistics my ass.  Daily I see people run lights, swerve into the opposite lane and ignore traffic signs while chatting on the phone.  When you are driving your attention needs to be on the road, not on a conversation you are having on the phone.

Interestingly mythbusters tested cell phones vs. intoxication and found equally horrible test results while driving.

Cell phones disrupt blood cell function and brainwave patterns. You can easily test this yourself.  There is a reason talking on cell phones is akin to being drunk, and it is more than the distraction aspect, it has to do with the way the microwaves cause brainwave disruption.  There have been *Plenty* of studies on this.

Cell phones should be completely banned from the vehicle, but then people are so enamored with their goddamn technococks, that won't happen.   I must see 20 people a day blow through lights oblivious to the world around them while chatting on their fagophones.

Indeed, and you'll find that more often than not, if they are doing gods work they won't even broadcast it or make it known to the masses, and certainly won't be asking for you to send them large sums of cash.

Signing statements alone are fascist.  They indicate a person unwilling to accept the rule of the law, someone that considers him above the constitution, and the population sub servant to his will.  Thats enough evidence of a dictatorship right there.

http://www.boston.com/news/nation/articles/2006/04/30/bush_challenges_hundreds_of_laws/
WASHINGTON -- President Bush has quietly claimed the authority to disobey more than 750 laws enacted since he took office, asserting that he has the power to set aside any statute passed by Congress when it conflicts with his interpretation of the Constitution

Furthermore, reading the signing statements leaves little doubt that this man is asserting his rights to ignore anything and everything, including the ultimate authority to ignore the law altogether.  Reading the signing statements is shocking, and well, they are fascist.

http://www.coherentbabble.com/signingstatements/TOCindex.htm

Congress passes a law about due-process, and the president tacks on a fucking dictatorship phrase like:

Quote
The executive branch shall construe such provisions in a manner consistent with the President's constitutional authority to withhold information the disclosure of which could impair foreign relations, national security, the deliberative processes of the Executive, or the performance of the Executive's constitutional duties.

Seems like the govt. already knows about the effects of low strength microwaves(Wifi/WiMax) on humans..  I was looking up the "Frey" effect, on how some people around here can "Hear" WiMAX/WiFi when it is on by a series of "Ticks" in the brain and found this;

Quote
In June, 1970, a government think tank, Rand Corporation,
published a report by R.J. MacGregor, entitled "A Brief Survey of
Literature Relating to Influence of Low Intensity Microwaves on
Nervous Function."  After noting that the U.S. microwave
guideline in effect in 1970 for the public, 10,000 microwatts/^2
(now the industrial and military "guideline"), is proscribed from
consideration of the rate that thermal effects are dissipated,
the author, a specialist in modeling neural networks, states that
scientific studies have consistently shown that humans exhibit
behavioral disturbances when subjected to non-thermal levels of
microwaves, well below this level.  The symptoms that MacGregor
lists for those humans exposed more or less regularly at work or
in the living environment are insomnia, irritability, loss of
memory, fatigue, headache, tremor, hallucination, autonomic
disorders and disturbed sensory funtioning
.  He reports that
swelling and distention of nerve cells have been produced at
intensities as low as 1,000 microwatts/cm^2 (the current U.S.
guideline for the public).

      In a companion Rand paper, June, 1970, entitled "A Direct
Mechanism for the Direct Influence of Microwave Radiation on
Neuroelectric Function," MacGregor sets forth the idea that the
electrical component of microwave radiation induces transmembrane
potentials in nerve cells and thereby disturbs nervous function
and behavior. 

    Microwaves penetrate and are absorbed more deeply so that
they can produce a direct effect on the central nervous system.
With smaller wave lengths the principal absorption occurs near
the body surface and causes peripheral or "lower" nervous system
effects.

    Dr. Milton Zaret who analysed neurological effects for the
CIA during Project Pandora (he is now one of the few doctors
willing to take the government on by testifying on behalf of
plaintiffs filing claims for microwave health damage), wrote
that, "receptors of the brain are susceptible and react to
extremely low intensities of microwave irradiation if this is
delivered in accordance with appropriate "coding."  Coding is
reported to be influenced by the character of the signal so as to
be a function, for example, of the shape and amplitude of the
pulse or waveform.

I am thinking in the long term, not a couple of years.  Things seem much much worse than when I was a kid, and it was so much more free growing up then than it is now. People are far more narcissistic and wrapped up in their own world, and what they can do for themselves.  It is a sad thing to see society decline so rapidly.  Engineering by design I guess..

You know the foil isn't far off base.  I have been doing a tremendous amount of research on WiMAX/Wifi type technologies, there isn't really much known about them right now ironically and the technology hasn't been tested for health effects in the slightest.  What I have found is that WiFi saturation and signal isn't anything like electrical EM fields.  Electrical fields are like water, seeping through everything, and difficult to fully shield.  WiMax tends to find "Glass" the most pentrating substance on homes, but this aspect makes Wifi/WiMax extremely easy to shield as well as its wavelength being relatively wide spaced allowing for see through shielding applications.

I have found that simply replacing fiberglass screens on the windows of my home with aluminum screens *GREATLY* reduced or eliminated a good portion of power coming in.  Synthetic material doesn't attenuate the signals at all (ironically), but organic and natural substances tend to attenuate it to some degree or another.  In my screen discovery, I figured out that simply removing vinyl siding from a house and stapling up cheap aluminum screening material and putting the siding back up provides a fantastic barrier to the signal. (although not practical for everyone)

One thing I found as well is the WiMax/Wifi signals seem to run horizontally, and can be GREATLY attenuated from the ground up, for example a screen on a window attenuates the signal by 100% (22+dB) at only about 1-2inches below the top of the screen. The WiMax/Wifi signal disperses after this but the amount of wavelength is greatly reduced as it disperses and doesn't penetrate very far into a room as the conduit for it is narrowed. (Shotgun effect)  If this illustration makes any sense, showing what it basically does when it hits a window or any natural/organic barrier and seeks an easier way into the home:



Regardless, using instruments and devices, it is interesting to see how this technology works, and I have come up with some unique methods to defeat the signal that I am not ready to disclose yet. But google doesn't show me anyone else that has come up with these ideas unless my googlefoo is lacking.



26  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Wifi and headaches? on: May 04, 2007, 05:27:37 PM
Here is the letter I have sent to school and city officials that appears to be getting some "Play"...
----

My theory on why there is a dangerous saturation hotspot at Whittier Elementary is that schools are usually surrounded by fields, parks, playgrounds and parking lots.  WiFi isn't a very porous signal, and almost everything has an attenuating effect on the strength to some degree.  These antenna systems used by Wireless Oakland are power tuned specifically for penetration through homes in the neighborhood.  However when resistance is not met, these antennas spread their signal much farther than intended resulting in an overlap.

In the case of Whittier Elemetary (see attached photo with antenna locations marked in RED), you can see parking lots, ball parks, and parks surrounding the school, which result in a very severe "Hotspot" exactly where the kids play during recess.  Which would account for children reporting "Sick" and having to go home around the time of their recess, and would also account for an increase in illness from students near windows facing the hotspot.  When children come to the office and report "It feels like there is electricity flowing through my head." and nobody takes notice, what is going on here?  Children are *NOT* supposed to have these types of symptoms!



Quite honestly, this would be easy to track.  Simply correlate the amount of students reporting sick with the testing regime for Wireless Oakland at the saturation point.  I can tell you with a great degree of certainty that when this system is online and testing on our street, my neighbors are experiencing ill health reactions and we aren't in an overlapping area. I can only imagine how much the children playing at Whittier park and Elementary School will suffer with the overlap, not to mention the homes in that direct area.

Lets be realistic here, what purpose would a slow wireless connect serve in the area?  Anyone that wants internet already has it, and anyone thinking about getting it won't be happy with the poor performance of Wireless Oakland. Wireless is so full of security holes which any expert will confirm and demonstrate, that it makes little sense to saturate our neighborhoods and schools with this unproven, harmful technology that some European countries have already started to disable due to health concerns...  I don't recall any voting, or a poll taken to see if people actually want this, but when people become aware of health impacts - and they will become aware of them - , I can assure you they won't want it.

I race outside.  I see what look like 'seed helicopters' clogging the vents into the air conditioner's fan.  As I move close...wait...those aren't seeds...they're...feathers!  I then notices feathers floating around me.

That means....

ATB: That sound is the bird's corpse flipping around the inside of the AC and its bones crunching. <GAG!>

I race back inside to power it off.  It's obviously too late for the bird...but must prevent AC damage.

I've not manned up enough to look down into the AC...how to clean up? 

Was gonna fire the hose down in there, but fear soaking what shouldn't be soaked with regard to mechancical stuff.  I'm hoping in the absence of the spinning blades the mangle corpse fell to the bottom and will just rot away at its own pace.

Grossiosso!

Always keep air units sealed in the off season.. I wrap a clear tarp around mine until it is needed.. Then I pull the tarp off, and hose it down, all of the important components are sealed, you don't have to worry about using a hose on it.  Another good habit I have is to bang on the unit with my fist a few times the day I decide to turn on the air and knock out any "Guests".

Well something is up, at least at this point, I am getting the attention of the city politicians.. The whole matter with the school seems to have riled some people up..  Word is spreading a bit, I heard parents talking about it today at my sons baseball practice.  Ironically, they we referring to "Some guy", which happens to be me, sitting right next to them.. LOL!

I have been experimenting with various household shielding methods, and have come up with some remarkable results of which I don't want to post here, but I will talk about privately.  So far in testing I have been able to knock the strongest signals down to 0 using an amazingly simple method.  Good news on that front at least, since I can quite easily create an Wireless free environment in the home without spending thousands of dollars for special stuff shipped from overseas.

That's not going to help the other people getting sick, not the kids at my sons school getting hammered by it and having to go home though.  For that it will require action by parents, officials, and possibly the attorneys..  I feel this is an emerging health crisis
30  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Wifi and headaches? on: May 03, 2007, 03:15:54 PM
A bit of an update.

My son called from School yesterday reporting he "Felt poor" and wanted to "Get out of the school for today".  Thinking this was odd, I went to pick him up anyway.  When I went into the office to sign him out for the day I noticed between 15-20 kids had already signed out as reporting "Sick, Ill, or Feeling bad" on the sheet.  As I was standing there, 2 more kids from 2 separate classes came in and said they want to go home because they feel poor.  The secretary rolled her eyes, and said "What is going on around here???", I asked her how many kids is average around here and she said "1-5, during peak sick seasons, sometimes as high as 8....  Then she asked the kids what their symptoms were.

One child said "I feel like I have electricity going through my head, and it it hurts real bad."  The other one said "I have a headache and feel like I need to sleep and the side of my head is pounding real bad.".

At this point, I talked to the principle who came out, and I notified him that Wireless Oakland is running a big local test of their system today.  He was skeptical, so I took him outside to the playground with my WiFi testing device I happen to bring with me.  I showed him that at the playground, 4 separate signals from Wireless Oakland converge, creating a super-concentrated point right at the school.  I asked when the bulk of the kids reported sick, and he said "Between 12:30 and 1:30", I asked when "Recess" is, and he said between 12:30 and 1:30...   In his brain, he put two and two together, and said "Well what do you want me to do about this? I am just a regular guy, I can't do anything." and walked away...

This is unbelievable. I have been contacting attorneys all week and cannot find one willing to take up this cause. I foresee a pretty juicy class action, or at the least, a multi-million dollar lawsuit.  But no heroes seem to be left out there willing to tackle it.

So there is no gurantee it will work, and it has no effect if you have severe apnea.

I think it would be more that they don't want to commit to being an effective treatment for severe cases.

Exactly, not to mention the FDA would shut them down in a heartbeat if someone filed a complaint that it didn't work.  You have to be VERY VAGUE when making any claims unless you are a big pharmaceutical company - if you are one of those - you can claim anything you want and not worry about it.

OUCH!  They are doing WiMAX here now in this county;

http://www.mlive.com/mbusinessreview/oak/index.ssf?/mbusinessreview/oak/stories/20060504_wi.html

DOUBLE OUCH! Translated from Swedish;

On May 23rd 2006, Sweden's STV broadcast a segment in their current affairs program "Debatt" (svt.se/svt/jsp/Crosslink.jsp?d=28906 ) that raises some rather irksome health questions about WiMAX, the wireless broadband system heavily funded by Intel.

The week previously, the township of Göten had their first -- and hopefully last -- taste of modern wireless technology when their new WiMAX base-station was activated. Within hours, there were calls to the local hospital emergency service from residents near the base-station, ranging from sharp headaches to difficulty breathing, blurry vision, and even two cases of heart arrhythmia. All symptoms abated once the sufferer relocated away from the base-station.

Sweden was the first country to recognise electromagnetic hypersensitivity as a valid medical condition, and have set up a federal body to assist sufferers of EHS (www.feb.se). There has been a call for the Swedish government to close down the nation's WiMAX networks, pending further investigation into the claims.

According to the UN's World Health Organisation, who in December 2005 agreed that "EHS [Electo-HyperSensitivity] is a real and sometimes disabling condition" (see www.who.int/mediacentre/factsheets/fs296/en), approximately 3% of the world's population suffer ill effects when exposed to high frequency magnetic radiation. Britain, Canada and Argentina have all taken on the WHO's report, and have begun to actively pursue public research into the effects of EM fields on people. The WHO's EMF taskforce is currently looking at allegations that major players in the wireless technology industry have been down-playing, obscuring or in some cases even tampering results of EMF studies so as to prove that wireless technology poses no threat to health.

TRIPLE OUCH!  The county we were planning to move to is rolling out WiMAX and is in Phase-2.

Will they?  Or are you either susceptible or not? I've been around varying levels of EMF, including the 2.4 ghz frequency used by wifi networks since that band began being used, and I've never suffered any effects.

Sounds to me like susceptibility is genetic, not acquired.

I never "Correlated" my symptoms of being around WiFi until recently.  I always wondered why at Stardock I got CONSTANT headaches and neck pains, then I remembered I was sitting next to 2 wireless hubs.  I never correlated my insomnia and neck pains in the house as being anything other than "Stress" until my son got sick forcing us to turn off WiFi, which miraculously cured my insomnia and neck pains (in addition to his troubles going away).  I wonder how many people out there are popping pills or have negative health impacts that they just haven't pinned down to the real cause?

I'm playing it safe for my families sake, and getting the hell out of harms way.  The next half decade or so should be interesting with what comes up regarding this.

Right now we're getting the house up for sale. It isn't even a question as to "If" we will move, it is "When", as the negative health impact of WiFi is something we aren't going to mess with. I am sure it will take years before everyone else gets up to speed on what it is doing to them.  We're not waiting.

Well, there are pictures of him falling off a Segway.  Or his face all scratched up from falling off his bike.  At least twice.

There is also the assassination attempt by a pretzel (Mr. Salty is still at large).

Or sexually harrassing Angela Merkel, the Chancellor of Germany.

Bushism's will be historic.

We went out to a few outlying areas, with a rural-town-suburban mix.. The air quality out that way was simply stunning compared to what we are used to.. So moving out might not be bad, bad at all.  nod
