so the concrete foundation, padding/carpet or hardwood floors is not sufficient insulation (if his premise was even true) but adding a plank will provide adequate insulation?

is he assuming you are keeping your carboy outside on the dirt?

what energy is would be sucked from the carboy?

I was told as a child to never sit directly on the ground and that I should always sit on a jacket or a book or piece of wood or something. The reason being hemmoroids, though.

Google images might have come up with the image you posted along with a lot worse examples

its true to an extinct.

Google "Bionic band"

here is the test I preformed.

I stood on one leg with my arms out to my side to balance.
I was told to not let the big 6' guy push down to knock me out of balance(needless to say I fell over trying my hardest not to let him)

he then gave me the bionic band to hold on to in my left hand and he said ok lets do it again.

this time around I was rock solid, I wasn't budging.

now I am not sure how much truth there is to it, but I kid you not it was the weirdest feeling ever.

he also says that if your at the beach or lake and just have your feel in the water you are grounded and essentially the same thing.
