I don't know what kind of routers they sell over in the UK, but one thing's for sure, I don't want 'em. (Or maybe I do?) British author Kate Figes claims that the electromagnetic waves emitted by her wireless network made her nauseous, sick, and exhausted. To the point where walking through her front door would leave her feeling run-down. "Imagine being prodded all over your body by 1,000 fingers.That is what I felt when I walked into the house." As a result, Figes says her body can now sense when ever there's a Wi-Fi signal around. Now that's one superpower I wouldn't mind having myself, but whaddya say, folks. Ever experience any wireless "prodding" from your router?

I think it may not be as bogus as it sounds. I actually get a pain in the back part of my neck / base of my head whenever I use a cell phone or someone uses it near me. I doubt it is my imagination because I actually start to get the pain right before the phone rings if it is near me. Some have thought I was psychic and can predict phones ringing, but not so much.

In any case, I am torn. This chick could be wacko (or could be regardless of whether she can sense wi-fi networks), but I do believe that certain people can have nerves 'light up' due to certain wireless signals.
