THIS is bizarre!
I don't know if this belongs in the Paranormal, Science or conspiracy forum.

Please watch the short video.



Simon Legrand and his friend notice a strange energy in the air while walking past Google offices in London, he then records the effect is has on his hair




A bizarre video has emerged of a man walking into a beam of static electricity outside Google’s offices in London.
Simon Legrand and a friend were walking past the tech giant’s office building on Friday night when they say they felt a “strong electric field” and decided to film their experience.
As Simon walks towards the building his hair visibly rises from his head and he says he can feel a buzzing sensation on his forehead.
Seconds after the demonstration Simon’s friend holds his phone up high and it starts crackling.
“Initially it didn't hurts us, just surprised us. Then it seemed to intensify and my phone started crackling and the video cut. My friend got a strong electric shock from holding my phone up high” Simon later wrote online.

Sounds like a microwave beam - that's why they call it "ionizing radiation".

Bizarre indeed, one hell of a static encounter.

Google have invested a lot of money in technology companies of late, I wonder what they're working on or testing?

I can't help but wonder how those working inside are effected, as well.

I bet it doesn't effect those indoors. Probably some beam being shot onto the unsuspecting public as they walk by.

They have come so far with technology nowadays that it could be part of a prank t.v show or it could be something far more worrying and they're experimenting with live human subjects.

It's made The Telegraph, so probably nothing to worry about.

sorry but microwaves = RF = NON ionising radiation but can and will still ruin your
day if you are subjected to a strong enough field in the right frequency range

i cannot explain why there would be such a strong field at ground level in London
but there are plenty of point to point links and sat uplink dishes scattered
around the rooftops of London that could curl your hair perhaps one had
slipped from its mountings and was beaming over the side of the building?

eta ionizing radiation comes from radioactive sources. alpha beta x-ray and gamma rays are ionising

Me too..and this is a spy company that's all about comms, etc.

Microwaves are non-ionizing radiation.

Wait until someone with a pacemaker walks past..
I can see a claim coming.

Yes, but microwaves still destabilise the atom, the form is just a lower energy order of EM. I don't think we have the full handle on this at all, nor Gamma Rays for that matter. If we don't know about Gamma rays generation as in Universe..then we don't know properly all about microwaves and the lower orders, and all the in-betweens or how do they interact or is it all linear..I don't think so, but we just don't know, and matters not what I think anyway. How do Gamma ray bursts occur on Earth in proximity to a lightning strike, something that happens every minute of the day? How is it not harming us, or is it? That's not something produced in a lab.

Google better get onto it quick, any capacitance effects can have a large public liability.

a reply to: IAMTAT I would have like to see that effect. However, since you filmed at night I can not see anything.

Microwaves aren't ionizing radiation.

And ionizing radiation doesn't leave a net charge.

I can't see crap on the recording, TBH. It's just amazing they couldn't turn on the camera's light.

No, not at all. No EM (unless you're talking about very energetic gamma) 'destabilizes atoms'. If you get into a high enough energy range, you can knock an electron off, that's what we call ionizing radiation. But that's still not destabilizing an atom.

And to add, there is no such thing as "a beam of static electricity", anyway. If something's going on, and it's not at all clear from the recording that anything is, it's something else entirely. Might be interesting to instrument, if it's reproducible and not a prank.

I wouldn't do that... you'd probably end up baking your head like a baked potato...

It's an "Anti-tax man" beam.

I'm betting this on being a viral video..... Google will announce some new product or something soon.
