Don’t scare me …. you surely aren’t one who believes everything you see on the internet must be the truth! Better to use multiple sources, none from the same ‘author’, and even then it could be the same people using fictitious names.
Personally, I take everything I find on Google or TV with a single grain of salt. IOW, unless I see it from other reliable sources, or experience it myself a number of times in the same way, I’m not going to buy into it wholesale.
Sorry, just had to say that. Otherwise I would need to either fearlessly spread (what’s left of) my wild oats, run up huge debts I never have to worry about paying back, or else lock myself in the bathroom this coming year, shuddering in fear, since the world will come to an end because of the Mayan Calendar.
I think we neither give enough credit to past civilizations for being as smart as us, nor enough criticism to believe they were no smarter … whatever was there might have value, but it didn’t save them from annihilation.
It’s true, Ben Franklin was surely not the first to ‘discover’ electricity, but at least his experiments weren’t ‘hidden’, and others such as Michael Faraday, have since been able to expand upon the knowledge.
I always want to encourage experimentation, but right now, I see no reason to believe a pyramid of fencepost rain caps would fare any better than if they were bonded each on top of the other to form a solid ground rod, driven deep into the ground.
… but, hey, you know … prove me wrong 😉
