Picture it, one day you are sitting in your home in front of your computer. You may be on Facebook, playing World of Warcraft, surfing porn or whatever it is you do online. Suddenly, there is a knock on the door. Its your neighbor. He politely asks you to get rid of your wireless router, your cell phone and to keep the lights low in the house because he suffers from electromagnetic sensitivity, or EMS. What do you do? WHAT DO YOU DO?!?!?!?!
Well, you would probably do what any normal person would do … tell the psycho to go fuck himself and continue whatever it is you were doing not thinking much of it. This is exactly what Raphaela Monribot did when her psychotic neighbor Arthur Firstenberg came by knocking with just this lunacy.
Well, Arthur Firstenberg is now living in his car far from his house and has filed a $530,000 lawsuit against Raphaela insisting that a judge force her to cease and desist all electromagnetic activities. Weird? That’s not the half of it …
Firstenberg "cannot stay in a hotel, because hotels and motels all employ wi-fi connections, which trigger a severe illness," says the request for a preliminary injunction. "If (Firstenberg) cannot obtain preliminary relief, he will be forced to continue to sleep in his car, enduring winter cold and discomfort, until this case can be heard." The case has been assigned to state District Judge Daniel Sanchez, who has yet to set a hearing.
Ok, I’ll bite. What the hell is EMS? While I couldn’t find a good description of EMS, I did find EHS, which seems to be the same thing …
Electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS), also electrohypersensitivity or electrical sensitivity (ES), is a condition in which people claim to experience medical symptoms that they believe are caused by exposure to electromagnetic fields. Although effects of electromagnetic fields on the body are established, sufferers of electromagnetic hypersensitivity report responding to non-ionizing electromagnetic fields (or electromagnetic radiation) at intensities well below those permitted by international safety standards. The majority of provocation trials to date have found that sufferers of electromagnetic hypersensitivity are unable to distinguish between the exposure to real and sham electromagnetic fields.Source: en.wikipedia.org
The most important piece of the description is the last line, "The majority of provocation trials to date have found that sufferers of electromagnetic hypersensitivity are unable to distinguish between the exposure to real and sham electromagnetic fields.". So, in a sense, it is all in their head.
What is strange is that nobody just slaps the guy and tells him to shut the fuck up. How can a judge see a case like this? If I make up some disease that when my hot neighbor takes a shower I get an erection, so she obviously must finish what she started, will a judge allow me to sue her for free sex? Of course not, that is just ridiculous. So whats with EMS or EHS, why do these psychos get special treatment?
Look, first prove your disease isn’t in your head, then you will be taken seriously. Its actually quite simple, and quite common.
