If you are into aluminum you must see this!

During a search for info on Aluminum I stumbled upon this Website and it is a must see.

I deserve a little Karma for passing on such important information to all Forum members.

HISTORICAL FOOTNOTE: Aluminum was originally named "alumium" by Sir Humphry Davy, who later changed it to "aluminum" (perhaps in an attempt to make it more Latinized since alumen is Latin for alum, the aluminum compound that the name is derived from). The British (and allied English speakers) shortly thereafter changed the name once more, this time to "aluminium" so that it would again match the pattern of most other elements (helium, sodium, etc.), while the North Americans eventually decided to keep the second, slightly more traditional name. I predict that North Americans will adopt the more regular "-ium" spelling by the year 2050, prompting the British to start calling it "alumininium". At that point debate can begin on changing "platinum" to "platinium"

Thank you for posting this very valuable information. I have been wearing mine for several months, and feel much betterer. Now I can remember what I did this morning.

no wonder when I travel and stay in my Airstream I feel so much "freer". The mind control is turned off while I am inside! Its unbelievable. Now I see why I enjoy it so much.
Oh sorry got to go...not sure... why...though....

DON'T YOU KNOW?!?!

Those hats are what they want you to wear! That just channels and amplifies the mind control waves!

You need something that does not conduct at all- a perfect insulator, not a conductor.
