As a geologist who has conducted magnetic surveys, I'm well aware of the effect natural and man-made features have on the geomagnetic field. Power lines, in fact, can knock a magnetometer right off-scale. Nevertheless, having also worked for extended periods within such anomalies without feeling any effects, I place little credence in this hypothesis. There is no doubt that humans can feel the "prickly sensation" associated with high voltage power lines, but I submit that if you are close enough to feel that, you are too close! -- Pinkfud 18:47, 6 December 2008 (UTC)

I'm not sure that we have an appropriate category for this, but I thought the quotes would put it in the right context. Our definition gave it more plausibility than seems warranted by the actual usage. DCDuring TALK 23:46, 11 December 2008 (UTC)
