      I've seen articles on this guy. He had numerous champions until they finally debunked it. People actually found devices using them, in training at least. The moving rod tended to focus the user, is the theory.
      Any man can hold his place when the bands play and women throw flowers; it is when the enemy presses close and metal shears through the ranks that one can acertain which are soldiers, and which are not.

          Yup.

          When a need is desperately felt, it is easier to fool people. The dream of a hand-held bomb detector has weighed heavily upon emergency services for a generation or more.

            Hi

            It wouldn't surprise me that some very well paid people were duped, knew that had been duped but through fear of being belittled or having to admit they made a mistake, took on the persona of an Emu.

            Regards
