Knowledge is power. France is bacon.

Look, I have no clue if I am right or wrong. The concern that gets me is the hatred of even suggesting the idea

The US is removing most of its staff from the Cuban embassy.

You know who would hate to see the US and Cuba on friendly terms?

There seems to be an irrational response anytime mass sociogenic illness is brought up.  A sort of knee jerk, “I’m not fucking crazy man!”

I have to say, its an idea that had not occurred to me.  My first thought is, can deafness really be caused by a sociogenic illness?  Maybe, why not?

I was thinking Russia and Putin. They matter a lot more to Trump than Puerto Rico

The sound weapon thing seems like a whole lot of somatoform behavior but maybe not. Has the SGU talked about it in an episode? I would like to hear Steve’s opinion on the subject.

common mistake that people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools.

One thing to keep in mind is that nearly all people over 30 have some degree of hearing loss, and a lot of people have relatively severe hearing loss without knowing it. If you go looking for signs of hearing loss in any business’ workforce, you are likely to find it. And most of the other symptoms seem to be non-specific and of the type that could be caused by stress and anxiety of thinking one has been attacked.

The problem with the idea that this is a sonic weapon is that such a weapon would be large and heavy, probably mounted on a truck, and in order to focus it the way they’re saying it was you would need to surround the victim with multiple such weapons to create an interference pattern.  It seems implausible.

Your thoughts largely parallel mine. In another White House, I think it might be worth the effort to try to contact somebody and portray the skeptical position to somebody. Don’t know if it is really effective with the Administration however.

There was a lot of buzz about

sick building syndrome

a few years back. I could never tell whether it was a real thing or not.

I saw one article suggesting microwaves.  Microwave-based eavesdropping technology exists and could explain it.

I saw another suggesting misconfigured sonic devices can sometimes cause harm to targets, too.

Still not sure what to make of all this, though

… in war the screams are loud and harsh and in peace the wail is so drawn-out we tell ourselves we hear nothing.

Is there hard evidence that anything actually happened? Or are we relying on reports by the alleged victims? It’s worth noting that Cubans actually like Americans. In my three trips there, I never encountered any hostility, and I was warmly welcomed everywhere I went. And on all three trips I spent a lot of time wandering around entirely on my own when I got tired of the planned activities.
