"electro-sensitive" Another term I had never heard of.
Google electro-sensitive and you get 40,900 hits. Amazing.

"Sufferers and their support groups are firmly convinced of a causal relationship with electromagnetic fields; whereas at present the scientific literature does not support such a link."

Why stop at Wi-Fi? Wi-Fi is a really low power source and that's by design. Why not target the really high power television and radio signals? Everything that is plugged in generates a magnetic field and radio waves. Put an AM radio near your computer! Fluoresent lights, electric blankets, remote controls, high power lines, microwave ovens, cordless and portable phones, two-way radios, TV's and thousands of other things are bombarding you harmlessly daily.
50% of people that claim electro-sensitivity also claim chemical sensitivity.
"Double-blind experiments have been published, each of which has suggested that people who report electrical sensitivity are unable to detect the presence of electromagnetic fields and are as likely to report ill health following a sham or nocebo exposure, as they are following exposure to genuine electromagnetic fields."

Oh, and don't forget the Nina, the Pinta, the Santa Maria, and the Garcia. Don't know those names? Columbus's ships to find the new world. Never heard of the Garcia? No wonder, it fell off the edge.

Isn't there an Amish community that will take them in?

I wish you would have done the other post. This A-hole is giving me a headache. I'm very
sensitive to idiots. Wonder if I can sue!

There are numerous wireless signals being transmitted throughout the city without any of us knowing. Take a look around and you will see those fake cell phone towers that look like palm trees.

This guy just wants his name in the paper. Like you said, he should get a dog, or hobby and stop wasting the city's time

Ana

well said!

Maybe we could all just feel more comfortable if this douchebag wore an aluminum foil hat all the time. Then ALL of us would feel safe.

Recent local news story, I forget which network, about people saying Hybrid cars are unsafe because they emit EMFs! Which of course stands for ElectoMagnetic Fields, which they do because all electrical appliances emit some level of electromagnetism and also radiation. The actual story dismissed their (stupid) concerns, but the commercial teaser made it seem like something to be worried about. Ratings gold!

I have dyslexia. Signs with words are discriminatory to me and my disability. I think that we should get rid of the written language in all public areas as to not confuse myself or others suffering from dyslexia. How do they expect me to live a normal life when all of these words are jumbling around me. If I can't read things correctly, no one should!

OMG! My age is setting in and I am having trouble reading the small type in newspapers and on packaging. I am feeling discriminated against. I think all type should be at a minimum of 16 points so I can live a normal life and read the fine print on packages. Excuse me, I am off to my local Starbucks to surf the internet on their WIFI and talk on my cell phone to my friends.

Perhaps we can compromise, Lauren. Instead of removing all words, can we instead agree to only use palindromes?

Leave it to people from my home town of Santa Fe NM to come up with something stupid like this...

Suzy

you've got to be f***ing kidding me. and the MILLIONS of cell phones and computers and gps systems, etc etc etc haven't had any impact, but WiFi does? please go join the Amish.

Willy

So I think the only solution is to have IQ tests given at age 16, and people who score less than 120 get shot on sight. Because s*** is seriously f***ed up nowadays. What the f***.

if your complaning about " suffering " from effects from wi-fi i hope you ]] DIE! [[
