He's really going to get a kick out of the inevitable counter-suit. I hope he at least has some property that can be seized in a settlement.

That's what you get for sharing your wiring.

Bend over for the nice men in white, Mr. Firstenberg.

And a good chunk of that static you hear on an empty radio channel? Comes from outer space.

Good luck hiding from that.

Didn't some university do a real (double-blind) scientific study and as a result determined that these folks who claim a sensitivity to EM radiation couldn't reliably tell when a transmitter was on or off?

I seem to recall reading something like that, but can't find it anywhere.

probably becasue you scrambled your brain waves when you left your transmitter on all evening.

So, if I buy an iPhone, it will drive away my crazy neighbor? Now that's a selling point I can support.

My dad was told that his meteorite collection keeps EMF radiation away. Maybe this guy needs to start collecting space rocks.

My neighbor came to the front door one day and announced to my wife:

1) That some woman was driving around our neighborhood and if you look at her she will kill you.
2) That she (the neighbor lady) had borne a couple of dozen babies, but most of them had been taken while she was in the hospital.
3) That she (my wife) was psychic and could remotely contact her missing brother.

From thence forward we have been "having dinner" when she knocks on the door.

/Can't believe the wife let her in the living room.
//Prolly just stopped taking her meds.
///I'm sure there's a fascinatin' story there, but I don't wanna know it.

It's all funny til you gotta deal with a tin-foiler.

I have problems when my neighbor turns on her sex toys. I've called the police but when they come out to interview her the just leave with a smile on their face. How can I get justice!

His filing (pops), in part, says:

"Further, the electric utility connections for Plaintiff's and Defendant's houses are joined, so electromagnetic fields generated in Defendant's house can be carried to Plaintiff's house through the wiring, intensifying his exposure"

LOL WUT?

What Arthur Firstenberg doesn't realize is that every time someone posts Arthur Firstenberg's name on an internet message board, Arthur Firstenberg's brain is bombarded wtih z-rays, which will eventually cause Arthur Firstenberg to lose control of Arthur Firstenberg's higher brain function (what little is left after the iPhone's "Arthur Firstenberg" app) and even bowel control.

The tinfoil hat isn't going to provide any protection. In fact, the only hope for Arthur Firstenberg is to construct a lead foil hat three point six four centimeters in thickness that covers his head (including eyes, ears, and mouth, but not his nose), and then wear this hat whenever sleeping.

Sorry, guy, but if you believe the modern age is bad for you, get yourself some EMF blocking paint, use it to spruce up your house, and end it.
 
2010-01-11 04:11:05 PM  
Poor guy, he really should include putting tin foil in his underwear. I've found it helps keep the alien probes out.
Glenn Back told me about it- when the tv was off.

As many as 37 different studies, apparently, all basically concluding the same thing. At least this summary has an entertaining comments section (pops).

However, if you're still skittish, you can get a really good brass, silver or even 14K gold hat (clicky-pop) to protect you...

"A" stands for "answer," as in an answer to your question.

An Israel company(who else- Micheal Chertoff is part owner-of course) is actively trying to sell them to the American Government.

2nd favorite call while working for a Sat TV Company:
Woman totally distraught screaming that the sat receiver can see her and is taking pictures. Total psychotic call. Routine. Gets routed up supervisor ladder till it gets to a colleague I sit next to. He talks for a half hour to assuage her fears, uses every reassuring technique and calms the woman. Last line of call: "You are welcome madam, and that's a pretty blue sweater you are wearing". Woman shrieks! Click. He was escorted out two hours later. Still love that call.

/would take twenty pages for best call
