ya just gotta love anything that has/had Nicola Tesla involved in it. they say all that stuff isn't possible and the rest is simple conspiracy theory. personally, I've read and seen enough that if you can charge the atmosphere enough (which is exactly what they are doing with HARPES), you can control the weather and a great many other things. for example, it could fool an enemy into thinking there were hundreds of incoming bogeys and therefore, scramble all of your air forces, only to have them blown out the sky by missiles, your own aircraft, OR, a high charge of electrical energy that you have stored in the atmosphere by the array. it's a very cool concept, but also very scary if used for the wrong purpose. does technology improve life if wielded by the wrong people? and who's to say that the people wielding the technology are the right ones for the job, just cause they happen to be on your side.
Chris, we've had enough of our Geese and our weather, so we don't mind sending them your way every once in a while. see, if the Hudson river incident had of happened in Canada, Canadian pilots would have performed the "Crazy Canuck" maneuver and avoided those Geese and kept on flying as if nuthin had happened. I could tell you what the Crazy Canuck maneuver is, but then I'd have to kill you, since it's a top secret. if I didn't kill you, you would simply tell everyone and then we'd have worldwide pandemonium in no time. you would destroy the relative balance of the universe and we'd have a parodox similar to what's seen in the Back to The Future movies. pretty scary s@*t. LOL.
