this must be what Einstein labeled spooky action at a distance....

maybe the same force that causes me to need to pee really bad the minute i get home from a drive, everytime.

i find cordless phone conversations to be much more dis-believeable that this. maybe one day, i'll buy and try one.

1) It could be conducting radio or transmission waves?

2) It could be conducting inner demons? They are voodoo sticks afterall.

3) It could be that i am FOS, but i'm not.

4) Why does my left palm start itching when i think about locating?

5) Why do you always blame me, Rhett?

6) I can't have nuthin nice.

Good question. I've read articles that say it has something to do with the human body and its conductivity. I wonder if the dowsing can be done using a non-conductive object, such as a long length of PVC pipe.
I may try this out next week, if I remember.

If you were to read the manual for the Rigid you have, prolly under "passive mode" they may address it in there. Not sure, just an educated hunch.
