    But I don’t believe in ghosts, either.

    But how does it prevent false positives created by IFOs?

    I remember reading about a very similarly named device for detecting magnetic field anomalies in one of my father’s old DIY electronics books from the 60s.

    Featured more prominently in those books were “lasers, phasers, ion ray guns, and other space age projects”.

    The great thing about those books is those project names were only nominal exaggerations. They were all real IR lasers and ion guns, etc. and were dangerous, adult devices to be sure.

    Some of the projects were still woo-woo silly though. The ultrasonic self-defense weapon comes to mind. It basically would only work reliably to enrage dogs (and pissing off dogs is not conducive to self-preservation!)

    Really? Using a transformer as the power source? Wouldn’t it introduce a lot of varying magnetic flux in the environment?

    Better off using a battery.

    Rossindetroit probably already built one years ago.

    Pesco’s jokes always provide a double-laugh, with the puffy-chested woo-fighters missing the humour and posting funny things.

      If Abbott & Costello were to improvise this double-act, you’d call them both funny. Weird how two turns of thought that are thought of as an ad hoc collaboration in one medium, are interpreted as successful trolling in the other.

    I was not aware that bullshit produced measurable magnetic flux.

    reminds me of a post I saw last year sometime…..
