It was a relevant observation based on your posts. I didn't say you
were stupid or insane (although I do think the latter), I said you don't
know what you're talking about. You don't, and it shows in your posts.

X-rays are not RF energy. They are ionizing radiation, produced by

No. A CRT, if seriously maladjusted or misdesigned, could produce
rather small amounts of X-ray radiation. We're not talking about a very
significant amount here, and it's pretty hard to make modern CRT's
produce x-rays at all while still operating correctly.

I didn't say they weren't harmful, I said they only cause heating and,
therefore, massive amounts of energy are needed to cause damage quickly.
Such damage is obvious to medical professionals.

Yep. That's what I'm saying.

Why? Because you don't want to hear anything that contradicts your
fanciful and distorted perception of reality? Don't worry about that --
This is my last post in the thread!

I have no idea how this statement is relevant. Are you talking about
the tower worker example? That's not a protected environment. Are you
aware of how the microwave oven idea was first conceived? Radar techs
and operators knew that standing in front of big microwave transmiters
felt warm. You have yet to describe a method of "mis-use" by which
these terrible consequences you mention could ever occur.

I didn't ask you if you had seen them, I asked you to show them to me.
I'm not going to take your word for it. I think you're confabulating.
You need psychiatric help. That's not an insult, that's an honest
