Faraday Cages.

Always a game of disruption and calm.  Some examples of Faraday Cages: (intentional or not)

A microwave oven

An elevator

A "booster bag" --the one crafty shoplifters use to boost items without them getting detected by the…

Funny this relationship between exhaustion and bliss.  Catharsis and ecstasy.  They both have their short runs, short run sentiments, short run utopias.  Yet there is always the climactic…
