    All Types Of Treasure Hunting

    What causes the ionic buzz that some LRL users (and some dowsers, too) feel?

    Where your heart is, there you will find your treasure.

    O God of compassion, You alone can justify me and Your will never reject me when I, contrite, approach Your Merciful Heart, where no one has ever been refused, even if he were the greatest sinner. For Your Son assured me: Sooner would heaven and earth turn into nothingness than would My mercy fail to embrace a trusting soul.

It uses extremely low power to transmit up to a half-mile, just like an MFD can do. So I suspect the human aura acts as an amplifier.
    "Read the advertisement", it's a piece by piece description of how an LRL'er begins with a factoid and weaves a fairy tale around it, then sets himself up to believe the fairy tale. Of course once he believes the fairy tale, he'll get all parsed arf when other people don't buy into his fairy tale. That's how the LRL mind works.

    People whose brains have more backbone than a jellyfish don't have to make up the stuff that LRL'ers post, the LRL'ers do it themselves without any prodding.

    Fairy tale - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    A fairy tale (pronounced /ˈfeəriˌteɪl/) is a type of short story that typically features folkloric fantasy characters, such as fairies, goblins, elves, trolls, dwarves, giants, mermaids or gnomes, and usually magic or enchantments. However, only a small number of the stories refer to fairies. The stories may nonetheless be distinguished from other folk narratives such as legends (which generally involve belief in the veracity of the events described)[1] and explicitly moral tales, including beast fables.
    In less technical contexts, the term is also used to describe something blessed with unusual happiness, as in "fairy tale ending" (a happy ending)[2] or "fairy tale romance" (though not all fairy tales end happily). Colloquially, a "fairy tale" or "fairy story" can also mean any far-fetched story or tall tale; it's used especially of any story that not only isn't true, but couldn't possibly be true.
    In cultures where demons and witches are perceived as real, fairy tales may merge into legends, where the narrative is perceived both by teller and hearers as being grounded in historical truth. However, unlike legends and epics, they usually do not contain more than superficial references to religion and actual places, people, and events; they take place once upon a time rather than in actual times.[3]
    Fairy tales are found in oral and in literary form. The history of the fairy tale is particularly difficult to trace because only the literary forms can survive. Still, the evidence of literary works at least indicates that fairy tales have existed for thousands of years, although not perhaps recognized as a genre; the name "fairy tale" was first ascribed to them by Madame d'Aulnoy in the late 17th century. Many of today's fairy tales have evolved from centuries-old stories that have appeared, with variations, in multiple cultures around the world.[4] Fairy tales, and works derived from fairy tales, are still written today.

He instigates harassment against people who use other brands of metal detectors. too.
    Well, Mike, you're just providing more examples.

    1. I understand quite well what I'm ridiculing, it's LRL fraud and the kind of thinking that sucks people into it.

    2. The fact I work for Fisher and Teknetics is not a conflict of interest. Fisher has been in the real long range locating business for nearly 80 years selling apparatus that actually works and everyone agrees that it works, that's why it isn't called "LRL". For guys (like Mike) who sell LRL's of the "electronic fraud" type to be posting here could be regarded as a conflict of interest, but I don't object to it, their posts reveal what they're up to. (Welcome back, Dell!)

    3. This is a forum. When you post stuff that other people disagree with, you should expect it to be critiqued, that's what forums are. Heck, you've made all kinds of insults and false assertions about me, and I haven't complained to the moderators. I have complained to the moderators about one person and it wasn't you.

    4. Mike's (false) assertion that I "instigate harassment against people who use other brands of metal detectors too" is just another instance of what Mike frequently does here-- makes up fairy tales about people and states them as purported fact. Mike, if you want to be banned for knowingly making false accusations against forum members, man up and ask the moderators to do it. Meanwhile I'm fine with you posting here because you do such a thorough job of discrediting LRL's.

    Mike, in post #3 it was you who dumped whiny garbage on your thread.


    Mike, this is a forum. Expect critique. If what you want is someplace where nobody will contradict you, try the bathroom mirror. Mirror, mirror on the wall....... hmmm, even with the bathroom mirror you run the risk of contradiction.

    As for Art's lengthy irrelevant wiki spams, he does it to everyone, not just you. I admit it's irritating, but the mods don't seem inclined to call him out on it, so get used to it.

    Where've we seen that before? In the "blind-dowsing thread".

For those interested, you can read up on ground radio, or ground communications. Recently a system was developed by Lockheed Martin for an underground mining communications system using this same principle. Extremely low power can transmit distances over a half mile--something the skeptics refuse to admit but MFD users have known for decades.
    That logic is like saying "NASA put a man on the moon, so that proves my slingshot for catapulting housecats to Mars really works." It obviously ain't rocket science!

    Some of us actually know about underground radio and about transmitting very long distances with low power. Engineered products that work. Knowing what the real stuff is, is good background for knowing what the fairy tale stuff is.

    Mike, check out the "Is there a Long Range Locator...?" thread, the sticky at the top of the forum. You posted in that thread. That's where you explained why it's unlikely that anyone can actually find buried gold with an LRL.

    There are however people who "use" LRL's/MFD's. Ain't no disputin' that one! We read their posts, even see their Youtube videos. What's missing in all that is any credible evidence that those gizmos are actually of any use for successfully locating and recovering otherwise unknown valuables, no matter how much fun they might be for outdoors parlor games. Not one LRL fan was willing to take the "Is there a Long Range Locator...?" proposition seriously. NOT A SINGLE ONE! Remember who took it seriously? Myself and Carl!

    Remember, if you want to know whether LRL's are frauds, read the advertising! The manufacturers nearly always reveal that they know the things are frauds. The salespitch is to gullibillies, and in most cases they're careful to "qualify the mark" before the sale so that even if the customer figures out the thing is useless, he won't admit that he was defrauded.

    Remember the Gravitator? It's found more treasure....... surely you know the story by now. Thomas is a smart businessman and you may have noticed he doesn't post on LRL forums.

    If you've got one that isn't a fraud, please kindly explain what makes yours different from all those other fraudulent units.

    But wait! if it's a real locator, one that actually works, then it's not an LRL! Everyone knows, I don't have to make this up!

    Thank you woof...Yes there are 1000’s of us
    We read their posts, even see their Youtube videos.
    Yes there are many

    What's missing in all that is any credible evidence that those gizmos are actually of any use for successfully locating and recovering otherwise unknown valuables, no matter how much fun they might be for outdoors parlor games.
    We know that you claim all the photo’s, stories of finds and movies are all fakes.

    Not one LRL fan was willing to take the "Is there a Long Range Locator...?" proposition seriously. NOT A SINGLE ONE! Remember who took it seriously? Myself and Carl!
    Gee..I see many people who have told Marc how they would look for his treasure. I also see 24 pages of posts
    Remember, if you want to know whether LRL's are frauds, read the advertising! The manufacturers nearly always reveal that they know the things are frauds.
    Reading comprehension again

    The salespitch is to gullibillies, and in most cases they're careful to "qualify the mark" before the sale so that even if the customer figures out the thing is useless, he won't admit that he was defrauded.
    Now you say that over 10000 treasure hunters won’t admit that they were screwed?
    But wait! if it's a real locator, one that actually works, then it's not an LRL! Everyone knows, I don't have to make this up!

    Perhaps some of the finds with LRL are not posted because real treasure is of such value that the finder doesn't share for fear of loosing it. The fact that it is long range and that all land belongs to someone with at least a claim on it may have something to do with it! You have to dig it up to prove it after all. The ones who don't go through all the legal channels and dig it up anyway are not telling anyone. The ones who think something is there but don't break any laws to prove it, give up. A dilemma.

    BLM is the biggest problem...The rules are that the treasure is theirs. If they find out they will follow you for years. Many treasure hunters have been waiting for years to get permits to dig. Many treasure hunters have claims filed against them..Everyone has their hands out. Then there is IRS...Would you want to dig in these ares?...Art

    All Types Of Treasure Hunting
    When in high school and we were on a winning streak it was unlucky to wash your t-shirt, we all did it and smelled pretty bad until we eventually lost. I actually think it helped with the team sticking together even if it didn't make complete sense. I think a little of that is needed here, we are all treasure hunters after all and there are enough of those trying to do away with treasure hunting for us not to get along.

    Glad to see you equate LRL users with superstitions!
