Grounding yourself to your Earth by SundogsPlace in SundogsPlace

There is an electrician I know and he says more and more well-off people are putting Faraday Cages around the bedrooms in new houses they are building, or in some cases their whole house. Faraday Cage is a fancy term for an area surrounded on all sides by wire mesh that is then well grounded. So, if you have a lot of screen wire lying around, just like the wire on a screen door but more of it, you can shield your bedroom. Then, turn off your wifi at night if it is inside the cage.

Be sure the wire conducts electricity as some wire mesh is treated with stuff that might block electrical conduction. Copper mesh is the very best, but it will cost you.

Of course, when 5G gets here, and it is well on its way, we will all be bombarded by high levels of microwave energy 24/7, but the cage will make you much safer even then, for eight hours a day or so.

Iggy doesn't make a lot of songs but—now I remember—the movie was Lock, Stock and two Smoking Barrels, directed by Guy Ritchie, who was briefly married to Madonna. It was a dramedy about some bumbling British hoods.The soundtrack, with that Iggy song was really good, since then Ritchi just hasn't been the same. Probably Madonna was the cause. Iggy's other good one was China Girl, but he gave it to David Bowie to record. Anyway, it's a pleasure to meet you.

To summarize this and other reading on the subject: the young Freud was a bundle of neuroses, phobias, and complexes, then he found cocaine and went entirely off the rails. He insisted that his followers believe him totally or be expelled from his circle. In short, he became a megalomaniac. Today most psychologists dismiss his theories, except those psychoanalysts who make a fortune by listening to their patients babbling on about their mothers for fifty minutes once a week.

It's important we keep a record of the cases...

I think the records are disappearing, in some cases at least. Today I went to the Wiki article on Agent Orange and searched for monsanto to confirm that Monsanto had indeed been the only manufacturer of AO. Was Dupont involved? I still don't know because there was no mention in the AO article about Monsanto, or any other manufacturer. Agent Orange would be on a list of the top five weaponized chemicals ever, right in there with Zyclon B. AO is probably worse than Zyclon B since people exposed to it may have damaged genes and not know it until they have an abnormal child. So you get two generations with one spray. But there is no mention of who made AO in the article. A duckduckgo search will turn up that information and I'll do it tomorrow. (Agent Orange was not a gas but a liquid converted to aerosol just before spraying. It was used in SE Asia from 1961 to 1971, exposing millions on both sides of that war.)

Good. I guess, it would make me even more obnoxious, according to the video. I'm not a mother or a father, so am not sure, but maybe the same folklore exists around the world. The cabbage is supposed to pull toxins from the babies, but do not eat the cabbage after using it this way, since it is full of bad stuff :) . Japanese mommies are well-informed and were just goofing on the folklore I think. They network like mad and now we have a clash between older women, who say stuff like, bundle the baby up and always put socks on him/her, and younger ones who are against those ideas. Glad you liked it.
