From the Cracker Barrel lobby –
I was looking through some old pictures and noticed a few that really stuck out. All these years when a picture was taken of me that ended up with my head at an angle I had always just thought I slouched or had bad posture. Check it out though, they all follow the direction of the curve. What I want to know is how in the WORLD this wasn’t detected before it got so bad that my disc is irreparably damaged. I’m sitting here in my chair after 11 hours at the paintball field helping run the Stalingrad paintball scenario and the left side of my neck feels like its on fire. So frustrating.
I could go on through my entire photo archive and find probably 100+ front profile pictures of myself but I’m tired & it’s late. So far every.. single.. last.. one.. tilts to the left.

Might be a bit extreme, but it gets a few points across.
Never underestimate the difficulty of changing false beliefs by facts. – Henry Rosovsky-Harvard
This is absurd. I thought this kind of thing only happened in the United States.
Slashdot page on this article, feel free to read comments of people who, for the most part, know what they’re talking about & despise science fear mongering and anti-science rhetoric as much as I do.
What’s next? Banning windows and outdoor recess? Both of those activities subject students to far greater EMF Radiation from the fusion reaction commonly referred to as “the sun”
Because it is pandering to a false belief (that wifi harms people), and its one that *has* been thoroughly researched, unlike what was stated in the article and summary.
It is a dangerous thing to fold and let this pass, because irrational opponents to radio waves will point to this case to further their fear-based opposition.
You cant just let them win because its “too hard” fighting irrational beliefs, you have to educate people about the facts so they are not afraid of things they don’t understand properly. You have to show everyone that these people are wrong, why they are wrong, and why it is a bad thing to allow such wrongness to win.
Take the microwaves out of the teacher’s lounges.
They didn’t also require AC receptacle plug covers installed so electricity doesn’t leak out of the wall sockets and give everyone cancer.
We’ve researched it with short wave radio, FM, AM, CB, and even cell phones. We’ve even researched the health effects of 2.4 and 5.4ghz signals. Wifi falls within this research since it’s using the same spectrum and is if anything lower power.
So… not only is the complaint stupid…. it’s also wrong.
Are they actually upset about this for the stated reason or are they claiming a health reason to justify opposing it for some reason?
A very good article over at techspot.com details the last 3 months of hard drive prices as a result of the Thailand flooding.
A very good read for those interested.
