Comment Re:I Would Rather Go To Theatres (Score 1) 341

I have stopped going to theaters due to people talking loud through the entire movie, kids or adults kicking my chair, people using their very bright phones during the movie, people talking on their phones during the movie, people that don't bathe and smell really bad in the theater, and the latest problem being theaters that play the movie at painful distorted volumes. I love watching movies with loud surround sound at home but the volume in the theaters requires me to actually wear ear protection. I never go to theaters even when our company pays for the tickets and the snacks. I will continue to put money in to my home theater and not into the box office. For those that love the commercial theater experience I say more power to you. I used to love the experience. It has really changed and now there is a new market for the industry to cater to a segment of the population like me as well as homebound folks that are not able to get to the theater for health or other reasons.

After getting very sick I can say I agree with your discovery. Low Carb, High Fat. very low intake of highly refined sugars and grains. Lots of meat and green veggies. I also take liquid magnesium. About 70+ percent of Americans are magnesium deficient. Magnesium regulates over 300 chemical processes in the body. Probiotics are a good idea as well. No drugs, No alcohol. No soda.

Comment My First Apple Product (Score 1) 205

The Iphone is the first Apple product I have ever owned or used. It is also the best device I have ever owned. I use it all day everyday. I use two radio apps everyday to listen to stations all over the world. If the performance and ease of use of the Iphone is any indication of how good their computers are then I will be buying nothing but Apple from now on.

Submission + - Using Salt Water as Fuel (

MoronBob writes: The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette is reporting that an Erie Pennsylvania man has invented a machine capable of extracting and igniting hydrogen from salt water using a radio-frequency generator. From the article: "John Kanzius, a Washington County native, tried to desalinate seawater with a generator he developed to treat cancer, and it caused a flash in the test tube. Within days, he had the salt water in the test tube burning like a candle, as long as it was exposed to radio frequencies."
