Re: double helix (and Vortex Streamers...) who knows the secret?

The photo is very real, this is of course the preliminary device one must
perfect in order to produce the "Tesla Death Ray" and the "Tesla Cavorite
Anti- Gravity Paint".  I have seen this phenomoena many times in the space
craft of my alien friends. If any of you would like more information I will
ask my friends tonite for permission to release the secret to the list. I
will see them when they pick me up for a visit to their city on Mars, the
one with the pyramid face...you know......

(I wouldn't take anything on Keelynet too seriously, there is some fact
mixed with fiction, and there are some interesting characters who hang out
there, I always enjoyed looking at their stuff for the entertainment value,
sometimes one needs a good chuckle..... you know? And now let's all be very
nice to the Keelynet genre folks, they have a right to believe whatever they
want. Hoax (something intended to deceive or defraud) is a pretty strong
word to use, I like "marketing tool". I wonder whatever happened to the
folks who wrote the book and how many copies they sold? That stuff is pretty
dated (1986).)
