What's to the word on the safety of holding batteries in your bare hand? When I hold 2 batteries in the same hand the surrounding muscles start contracting painfully until after a few moments I have to literally pry my fingers open with my other hand in order to let go of the batteries. BUT IT'S ALL IN MY HEAD A HERP DE DERP!
This is called squeezing. Let go of the batteries and your hand will stop contracting.

But seriously, go to a doctor. Go to a scientist. Go to ANYONE. Show them this exact situation. Of course people can't know everything if you are keeping your super powers to yourself. Go get studied. If you really do have some magic connection to batteries, science would love to know about it.

Really though it sounds like you can a mental disorder, not a battery problem.

Maybe he is extremely sensible to electrical current, what he's describing is basically what happens to your arms when you touch exposed power leads, I know that 24V is enough for me to feel pain because I have extremly thin skin, and the worst is I'm an electrician

I read this and think Europe has a brilliant plan on stopping texting/facebooking. Seems like everyone 18 and under is consumed by this need to text or socialize all the time.

I agree, and this pisses me off as well. Half of the kids these days don't know what's going on inside this countries borders let alone outside them, yet they could tell you what their friend ate last night.

You know I seem to recall several illnesses that people used to call mental disorders... ever heard of Ulcers? Parkinsons? Multiple Sclerosis? Actually, almost every ailment has been considered psychosomatic at one point or another. The fact is that we only call things "mental disorders" until we find out what is actually going on. The huge problem is that more people would rather tell someone it's all in their head then try to figure out what is happening.

I suffer from a complex neuro-immune disease called CFIDS (Chronic Fatigue Immune Dysfunction Syndrome) in the USA, and ME (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis) in the rest of the world.

I've been told that I have the same level of health as someone who is about 1 month away from dieing with AIDS. I have been told I have everything from Atypical Multiple Sclerosis, to HIV Negative AIDS. There are estimated to be over 20 million people with this illness. It is described as being as disabling as AIDS and MS combined. Clinicians who work with patients say they would rather have AIDS because they have a much higher quality of life because of available treatments. Even our own government has linked the disease to a gamma Retrovirus (like HIV) called XMRV.

So you would think that doctors would be very interested in a disease like this right? I mean I can't even hold batteries. Sometimes wireless mice stop responding for me, but no one else. Not to mention the nearly endless amount of other symptoms like horrendous body wide pain and post-exertional malaise that is so intense sometimes even just a phone conversation can leave me shaking and confused for hours, or even days.

Well it turns out that over the last 50 years (ME was first classified as a neurological disease under the WHO in 1968) people have been more interested in telling people that it's all in their heads than doing actual scientific research. In the UK if you get a diagnosis of ME you're likely to be sanctioned to a mental hospital where you're "treated" to death.

It's always better to research and learn, than to dismiss as "mental" or ignorant. It is extremely important that people open their minds to unlimited possibilities so that a yearning to understand takes president over a yearning to be right.

I actually found out about Bin Laden's death on facebook 5 minutes before it showed up on MSM websites.

While i respect your point in defending your argument i can only suggest not attempting to refute peoples points on the internet.

I have countless times typed up essay-like replies in an attempt to educate or even open another persons eyes to the possibility that they may in fact be wrong, only to end up never hitting the reply button.

I guess i go so far as to think that the same person that replied with such vehemence in their ignorance would be incapable of comprehending any alternative.

The Council of Europe has issued a new draft resolution and report on device radiation safety that urges its 47 member nations to adopt a "precautionary principle" when it comes to cell phone safety.
So, when are we establishing laws to forbid hunting unicorns? I mean, just in case they exist.


Way to go Council of Europe, way to go.
