    I think you and spud are onto something, wish I could find more on this but maybe there is a reason why it is being hushed up, maybe it is very effective.

    I think you're probably correct. I've seen DC devices of all sorts in the third world.

    I have been known to use the forests here when I have an urgent need.

    It is one of the many benefits of living here in Western Oregon.

    Are you the pope?
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God
