French Cave Is a Refuge For the 'Electro-Hypersensitive'

Allergic to WiFi? Are cellphone transmissions making you ill? There’s a cure: live in a cave. That’s the solution for Anne Cautain and Bernadette Touloumond, anyway. The two suffer from Electro-Hypersensitivity (EHS) but have found respite underground, in a cave outside the small town of Beaumugne in Provence-Alpes-Cote D’Azur, France.

Radioactive Recipe in Sweden

Radioactive Recipe in Sweden

There’s nothing like Swedish home cooking (husmanskost). Kroppkakor (potato dumplings). Blåbärssoppa (blueberry soup). Kärnenergi (nuclear energy).

He tried to cook up a nuclear reactor in his kitchen. Not finding Americium, Radium and Beryllium in his local supermarket, Mr. Handl bought them on eBay. Simmering these ingredients in a 96% reduction of sulphuric acid was not entirely successful, and resulted in a stove-top explosion.
