Can you say 'Whiny little moneygrubber victim wannabe'?

I knew you could
According to the Santa Fe Reporter, Arthur Firstenberg, the plaintiff, has been sleeping at friends' homes or in his car to avoid the electromagnetic waves created by his neighbor Raphaela Monribot's cell phone, wireless network, computer, compact fluorescent lightbulbs and dimmer switches.

Firstenberg claims he suffers from Electromagnetic Sensitivity, or EMS, which induces "nausea, vertigo, diarrhea, ringing in the ears, severe headaches and body aches, crippling joint pains, insomnia, impaired vision, impaired muscular control," as well as other potentially life-threatening ailments.
He's part of a group of Santa Fe residents who are pursuing legal means to remove all Wi-Fi hotspots from public locations because they claim the wireless internet waves aggravate their "electromagnetic allergies." To add merit to their case, they are classifying their "allergy" or "sensitivity" as a disability and are claiming the Americans with Disabilities Act, which prohibits discrimination based on disability

If he's actually 'allergic' to EM energy, he can't drive: all the electronics in all the cars, and all the phones, and driving under or along power lines.

There's a test for you: put him in a car, blindfolded, and drive him under some lines for a few miles. "Members of the jury, you have seen the video: this man was driven under power lines for miles, while my cell phone was turned on and my navigation system was on, and since he didn't know they were on he had no problem."

Added: for further similar BS, Insty points here. Please note Lawyers representing the locals say their case against iBurst will continue on other grounds." Yeah, if you can't get the money one way...
