#12 100 megawatts? Damn, I wish I had one o' them things...

Not omnidirectional, though, I think. Something pointable.

#14 100 megawati megawatts? Daymn! I could set up the transmitter outside the garage and turn the snow to steam on my driveway during the worst of blizzards.

#15 Turn snow to steam... probably not too far off the mark: 100 million watts-- the output of nearly a quarter-million microwave ovens-- pumped into that dinky 6" long antenna on the router would yield some interesting phenomena, that's for sure.

The air around the router, probably for many meters, would be ionized a harsh, brilliant electric blue; and the temperature within a few feet of it would be higher than the surface of the Sun.

Happy Surfing, Doodz!!!

#18 "Some studies have indicated that there are links to carcinogenetic occurrences in animals, including humans, that are related to energy fields associated with wireless hotspots, whether those hotspots are transmissions lines, whether they're outlets, plasma screens, or microwave ovens that leak."

Speaking of microwave ovens that leak, I had a friend in HS whose microwave was an old 70's beast that was built in to the cabinets of his parents' home. I was over there one day, goofing off and one of the other guys opened the microwave door WHILE it was still running and the thing kept running. Needless to say, I didn't have my tinfoil on, so there's no telling how messed up I am. And, on another note, what the heck's a "Carcinogenetic?" Is that something where I don't get cancer, but my kids could? Never actually heard the term, but I'm no zoologist.
