Negative Electricity Discovered
by Mark Persons  W0MH

April 1, 2004

Researchers at Stanford University have uncovered evidence that Negative Electricity does exist. It is the exact opposite of electricity as we know it today. This is a huge break-through because it can change how we live our every-day lives. 

When perfected for home use, putting Negative Electricity into a light bulb will darken a sunlit room. On hot summer days, Negative Electricity could be used to power a hot plate to cool lemonade. Reports are that Mozart on a phonograph or CD player will sound like Hip-Hop. If you plug a power saw into Negative Electricity, be sure to reverse the blade. A similar warning will be displayed on all weed whackers. 

The day is not far off when you can enjoy the benefits of Negative Electricity. The possibility exists that the energy recovered by darkening a room or cooling lemonade could be sold back to the electric company. As for the immediate future, you will want to purchase a Negative Electricity converter for use with your home appliances and radios.

April 1, 2011 e-mail:  I see lots of potential for negative electricity.  Tim in Grand Rapids, Minnesota.

April 1, 2011 e-mail:  Mark, Excellent report on negative electricity! Thanks.  All best, John in Rockledge, Florida.

April 1, 2011 e-mail I'm glad someone finally reverse engineered this!  Now if they can just figure out how to apply the principle to mechanical engineering so we can reverse the effects of a 2,000 foot tower falling!  Del in Eau Claire, Wisconsin.

April 1, 2011 e-mail:  Hmmm�so that is what was going on.  I drove through Palo Alto the other day and it did seem a lot darker there than, say, Sunnyvale.  Mark in LaGrange, Illinois.

April 1, 2011 e-mail:  Hi Mark....We use negative electricity to power our transmitter...we had to convert all of the receivers in the area to negative electric units but it was worth it based on the cost savings we've seen.  The improvement in audio quality was also significant.  Maynard in Madison, Minnesota.

April 1, 2011 e-mail Hmmmm very interesting.  Kurt in Frogtown, a suburb of Brainerd, Minnesota.

April 1, 2011 e-mail:  How about putting negative electricity in the car batteries to start the motor backwards and filling the gas tank when it is empty?  Course that means you would have to put the vehicle in reverse to go forward!  April FoolsLOL  Danny in Hibbing, Minnesota.

April 1, 2011 e-mail:  This discovery is going to be conflicting when it is weighed out against the Dark Sucker Theory that claims electricity really does not exist at all.  Some researchers are convinced that electricity does not convert to light in light bulbs, but rather the bulb is sucking the darkness out of things. They claim that you can follow the wires right back to the hydro plant that disposes of the darkness into a murky river..or the coal plant that sends it up into the sky is visible black smoke.  I was pretty sure they were wrong, until I cut open a battery to see what was inside it one day,,, and it was full of Black stuff.  Dan in Duluth, Minnesota.

April 1, 2011 e-mail:  The next step in going green is going black?  Regards, Allan in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

April 1, 2011 e-mail:  I always know I will hear from you the day March is over with!   ;)  Steve in Appleton, Wisconsin.
