 You can just ignore them and the people who believe what they say.
I still have to remind myself (daily) not to argue with morons and the mentally ill.

My neighbour wants her house free of all EM so I asked her if I could take her laptop and phone and remove the WiFi.
Of course not! The idea of living in darkness at absolute zero didn't suit the needs of her homeopathic business. What can you do?

That would be hilarious if I knew she was not serious. I once knew someone who did crystal bowel cleansing. Don't even ask how that works. She moved from Cornwall (uk) to the Gold Coast (aus), as her new age 'skills' were in demand in Australia. Maybe you could make your neighbour some of your own dodgy tecnology to cleanse her EM field. Solder some old TV ceramic delay lines and crystals together on a metal saucepan lid and hey presto, instant money :)

This would be a very cynical approach.




I like it.

Have you tried to suggest 5G cleansing globuli? >:D

The funny thing is, it might act as a placebo and actually help them!  :D

I've been tempted a few times to build some "crystal healing wands" with RGB LEDs in a nice polished copper tube, it could be a fun craft/electronics project. I have just a bit too much of a conscience to take advantage of ignorance like that but I know that plenty of others will anyway.

On the contrary, I think those kinds of products would be very helpful!  -  anyone complaining about 5G towers would have a -5G device installed in their home, and live happily ever after!  :D

I mostly buy for the camera improvements these days. It's cheaper than having DSLRs as a hobby and hurts the shoulder less.
While all that is true, I have yet to see any decent photos taken of objects moving at speed which are some distance away from you, and yet look closer and pin sharp, with a phone. These are still the domain of DSLR's and is where they will reign supreme for a long time to come. Unless you're using professional grade lenses such as the grey Canon L series of telephoto lens, DSLR cameras and their lenses are in fact getting much lighter. Camera bodies are almost without exception these days becoming plastic and the bodies of telephoto lenses are also mostly plastic as are the lenses themselves, very few these days are made from glass.

Quick upload. Old XR, no optical zoom, 1080p 30fps

I have a 12 which can do 4k 60fps now and has 2x optical zoom. Need to go and try it out.

Not bad result for a phone.

I have a nice DSLR but obviously use my phone camera as well - they are each good at different things.

When a phone can do this, I will sell the DSLR...  it almost resolves to the sub atomic level:
