3/19    EMF shielding clothes:
        \_ In the very near future, these could actually be useful if you
           don't want airport security people to see your wiener.   I think
           that as milimeter wave scanning technology starts to get deployed
           we're going to see a bigger and bigger market for metalized
           underwear, especially for women.
           \_ Say hello to Mr. Body Cavity Search!
        \_ Mmm.  Why depend on science when you can be POSITIVE that something's
           bad for you!
        \_ Mmm.  Why depend on science when you can be POSITIVE that

           \_ Aren't you supposed to be in church all day today, asshole?
           \_ Don't forget about "get back to driving your Volvo" and other
           \_ So in other words, any cost is worth it when we're talking about
              saving <a measureable number of> American lives.  Think about

12/15   I'm planning on traveling to Europe and I was wondering if there's
        any reason I shouldn't be able to use a US power tap/strip (no surge
        suppression) with just a plug adaptor (i.e., no voltage conversion).
        This would be for use with electronics that accept 100V-240V. While
        the power strip is intended for use at 120V, it's just wires, right?
        (Also, this power strip has no power LED or similar.) If anything,

11/11   Watch the History Channel today! It's got Oppenheimer and the atomic
        bomb history. Did you know at one time 10% of the entire electricity
        in the U.S. was used to refine U235 and weapon grade plutonium?
        Holy jesus! I wonder how much energy is used to get plutonium fuel
        that generates today's nuclear powered electric plant
        \_ it talks about the 2 different methods for getting U235. So

5/18    Does the new federal vehicle fuel-efficiency requirement specify how
        efficiencies of plug-in hybrids will be calculated?  Some plug-in
        hybrids claims to have ridiculously high efficiency like 100mpg because
        they're not counting the energy input from the electric grid.  That's
        not a good indiction of their actual energy efficiency.

This silver-plated, stretchable, washable nylon mesh is electrically conductive. Plus you won't get those static shocks as you used to in dry weather and your clothes won't cling to you! Fabric provides up to 35dB of shielding at 100 MHz Made in USA. XXL We recommend that you order a size larger than you normally wear, so that you can put the Silver Lining garment over a cotton undergarment, to avoid direct contact between your skin and the conductive fabric. Fax/Mail Form DELUXE SHIELDING DRESS SHIRT Handsome and Comfortable Deluxe Shielding Shirt-white Deluxe Shielding Shirt-blue At last, you can look good and shield yourself too! This shirt was designed to shield well enough to provide radiation protection, yet stylish enough to be worn at work, at home, or at play. Made from cotton for comfort and pure stainless steel fibers to provide an amazing 68-99% shielding over the range of 10 kHz to 1 GHz, even after 50 washings! Fibers are so fine that the fabric has a soft natural feel. Fax/Mail Form SHIELDED CAP Radiation Protection Shielded Cap Smart and Subtle Protect your brain from RF (radio-frequency) pollution with this handsome baseball style hat. Specially designed to shield the head from frequencies from below AM through microwave, including cellular phone frequencies. Lined with sophisticated NaturaShield fabric woven from cotton with an ultrathin Silver/Copper core thread for excellent radiation protection. This gives this unique fabric a truly comfortable, natural feel and the durability and washability of cotton, but with exceptional reflective characteristics. Shielding Performance Research links RF radiation with behavioral and cellular disturbances. Many people can actually sense the differences in the levels of "mind noise" from RF radiation.

Shielded Gloves For those of you who experience (or want to prevent) ES symptoms in your hands when using a computer keyboard, laptop, cell phone or other electronic devices, these gloves form a conductive enclosure and effectively shield electric fields. Soft, light weight, with ribbed cuff, and offering good tactile sensitivity. Stretchy, so one size fits all, in basic gray color, each glove has a snap for a ground cord. Fully washable and tested for 50 cycles with no appreciable loss of conductivity. All fibers are conductive, achieving resistivity of less than 10^3 ohm/sq. Supplied with one 10-foot coiled ground cord with snap on one end and a banana plug/alligator clip on the other end. These gloves are also used in industry for static control when working with delicate static sensitive components. Grounding is not necessary for Faraday Cage shielding effect, but is necessary for static control. Try it both with and without ground cord and use whichever method works best for you. Fax/Mail Form WARNING: THE ELECTRICITY AROUND YOU MAY BE HAZARDOUS TO YOUR HEALTH Warning New 3rd edition, by Ellen Sugarman Originally published in 1992 and out of print for several years, this investigative journalist has revised, improved, and expanded her original work and made it available once again.

Bio-Grounder may reduce symptoms electrically sensitive Bio-Grounder individuals typically experience in the car. Drivers report a calm increased alertness, less fatigue, and less tendency for road rage! "Many people experience shocks from 'static electricity' when they get out of their car. In fact, it is not that the car is that is electrostatically charged - but your own body. If you are at more than about 3500 volts then you are likely to feel a shock when you discharge yourself on contact with the car bodywork or earth. As it is not plausible to specify or control the clothing people wear, the action to limit shock risk needs to be part of car system design." Fax/Mail Form Vehicle Ground Strap VEHICLE GROUND STRAP "Maintains Electrical Connection to Ground" Like a Grounding Wrist Strap for your car! No one likes that awful big shock when getting out of an automobile or truck. That shock is the discharge of "chassis voltage" built up as the vehicle moves along the highway. What you might not know is that in addition to causing symptoms of high body voltage in the driver and passengers (such as fatigue, irritability, drowsiness, and motion sickness), this type of discharge causes serious injury when it occurs at the gas pump. Every year, this seemingly innocent spark occurs at the wrong place and the wrong time: igniting gasoline vapors while fueling the vehicle. The Vehicle Ground Strap can be used on any car or truck. Simply affix the strap's clamp to the chassis of the vehicle and allow the conductive strap to dangle to the ground. Safe, durable and unaffected by the weather, the Vehicle Ground Strap maintains a secure ground and electrically neutral vehicle. Fax/Mail Form Deep Sleep Sheet DEEP SLEEP SHEET Lowers Body Voltage While You Sleep The Deep Sleep Sheet is a special low conductivity sheet for your bed.
