    Maybe that explains why the climbing plant outside my study has died

    The study also found that Wi-Fi radiation could inhibit the growth of corn cobs.
    ... make sure we dont put wifi hotspots all over Iowa, Illinois, Nebraska and Minnesota

    Okay so basically it's free radicals that are man made...? I'm surprised the tree-huggers aren't all over this. >_>"

    I've had a wireless router in my house for over 2 yrs now and there are at least 3 other networks that my airport "sees" at any given time (neighbors' houses are in close proximity) and I have 2 very healthy citrus trees in my back yard and a very healthy indoor plant in my living room (8 feet from my router). I don't see any negative effects on nearby plant life. You should see the size of these oranges and lemons. Hey, maybe wi-fi is making my citrus grow even better! haha

    Well we should all know if you fund research you can get almost any result you want. Look at eggs!

    Trees are over rated. What have they ever done for us anyway. Stupid TREES !

    Gotta agree with XJ on this one. I wonder if anyone has ever done a study hypothesizing whether or not doing studies ones whole life had adverse effects on the case conductor and to those around them. Where do these monkey's find the time for this cr@p?

    The aqueduct.

    Oh yeah, yeah they gave us that. Yeah. That's true.

    And the sanitation!

    Oh yes... sanitation, Reg, you remember what the city used to be like.

    All right, I'll grant you that the aqueduct and the sanitation are two things that the Romans have done...

    And the roads...

    Well yes obviously the roads... the roads go without saying. But apart from the aqueduct, the sanitation and the roads...

    This article is worse than useless. The description of the methodology is so weak that they could have done practically everything.

    At a guess, I'm going to say that this study conclusively proves that some members of the Dutch scientific community has been hanging out in Amsterdam coffee shops too much.
