      Trailer parks are interesting to EMF gaia
      from the standpoint that most trailers are made of metal sheets which
      make wonderful capacitive surfaces and aid in the coupling mechanisms
      above described. Many have talked about how tornadoes are 'attracted'
      to them--and certainly it is a combination of the parks having less
      ability to withstand the winds of severe weather, but at the same
      time, trailer parks have pattern about them that provides a mechanism
      for danger.

      Another Indian 'myth'
      is that a tornado will not cross a river. It stands to reason, also,
      from a capacitive coupling standpoint, that the river is going to
      have a relative conductive meaning to the bottom 'plate' that is
      formulated or organized in a 'line' as opposed to what the tornado
      has, organizationally, coming into that configuration--namely a point
      or a circle of opposing charges forming the feild under which the
      cloud microphysics are impacted. A river would support more of
      a 'frontal' organization . . .

      This goes to show that good substantive science is also about
      observations of things. Of course, Indians don't practice science--
      they are pagen!
