waste of money.

if you want to mind control i'd use tv and smartphones for a start. much nearer to the targets.




Swype on iOS is detrimental to accurate typing. Apologies in advance.

Everything is mind control. Being alive requires our environment to influence our decisions full stop.

A cell tower doesn't make me fell numb or lazy or psychopathic. The sun is a much bigger electromagnetic field maker that actually does make me lazy on a nice hot day. So who said mind control is a bad thing? I like lazy sunny days, and if only a cell tower could keep me warm when it's cold.

Sounds like the pied piper is about to be resurrected through the cellular network huh?

Winston Churchill said that the best argument against democracy was a five minute conversation with the average voter.

Looks like some kind person has saved us the need to waste even five minutes...!

I don't mind control, after all it's just one.

What I do mind is controllers..... too many choices

4G is really only 2G, but due to mind control slowing down your brain it seems really fast.




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
I install - Naked DSL, DSL Master Splitters, VoIP, data cabling and general computer support for home and small business.

If you climbed up a cell tower and stood directly in front of the transmitting antennas they would probably warm you up.

Is Bruce Upchurch for 'real', or an elaborate send-up?

If the latter, brilliant stuff, if the former, I hope someone cares for him.

I'm sure a friendly techie could sort his computer out for him (primarily and simply the boot sequence seems to out of whack in the BIOS), but no doubt he will accuse them of installing further nasties to control his computer? .

Micheal Murphy may be able to answer as to Bruce Upchurch's state of mind.  I suspect "for real"

Most likely a failing hard drive or hdd cable causing it to drop out of the boot sequence. One or two geekzoners are offering advice on twitter.

I like this George Carlin quote, 'Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that.'
