This morning I heard a "teaser" on the news said that a new "study" had shown that the closer you lived to a wind turbine installation the more likely you were to suffer mental disabilities - such as being crazy. :O

The report didn't say who performed the study or who funded it. :confused:

One can only guess......

That looks like a hot air balloon coming out of your fireplace chimney to me. :eek:

Perfect! That was the look I was going for although the round part is supposed to be the basket. :p

It is connect to a 300W Windy Nation generator.

Not surprising results.

At least out in California, the big wind farms are out in the very sparsely desert regions - not places that most completely sane people find attractive to live.

I remember hearing about this. The claim is that turbines that are right next to your house can create "infrasound" which may have negative health effects. Infrasound is a real thing - the idea the turbines create enough to make you crazy is highly suspect.

This is in the same frequency range as the 'brown note' isn't it?

For all those who suffer from constapation.......... Erect a wind turbine

How many wind jokes can you make here! :O
