@Gina they should use microwave screen mesh instead, so they can still look out their windows and get a little light in.
@zatnosk that's exactly what 5G would say.
But, according to my unified theory of electrogravitomagnetism, humans work best at around 1g. Going up to 5G is waaay to heavy, and would cause untrained humans to black out.
I have a quote and a link as proof:
"A human being usually blacks out at about 5g (5 times that of Earth's gravity) of acceleration."
@Gina Higher frequency have less penetration. 5G is safer than 2G. Don't know why your neighbors have such an idea.
@ff0000 In North America, it's basically because the only real player on telecom equipment for 5G is Huawei's Chinese spygear.
@Gina oh no. This is exactly what my dad keeps going on about
@bootblackCub hide the tinfoil!
@Gina I'm actually thinking of doing that, except around my devices directly – I don't like the idea of arbitrary objects around my house being bugs and not even going through my WiFi to do it.
I don't have physiological safety concerns about 5G; the energy isn't enough to heat up my brain, and if it can survive an MRI (and remain conscious!) I don't think electrical interference from such a weak source is going to be a problem. It somewhat bemuses me that some people do.
@Gina More and more people starting to do crazy stuff. xD
@Gina I'd totally raise an antenna in the garden just to wait for their reactions.
…unplugged - of course
@Gina LOL Awesome! 🤣
@Gina the perfect cover for a marijuana farm, I'd say.
@Gina I recently had to explain to a family member that 5Ghz WiFi is not the same as 5G so the high speed WiFi in my house doesn't harm them. People being uninformed or worse, half informed, is such a dangerous thing.
@nvsr lol I can sort of see how they got that confused but just wow 😅
@Gina Unfortunately, there's a strong anti-rational trend going on right now. People prefer to believe any bullshit they read on Russia Today rather than engineers and scientists...
@Gina if I saw that I'd assume they had a weed grow room set up!
@Gina 59isnietoke.nl "Adres niet gevonden" 😎 👍
@RyuKurisu lol I thought it was 59 too :')
