I have to wonder

This web site frequently has some useful information, but sometimes I have to wonder about that guy. This posting, for example. He uses billion several times where trillion is clearly the correct number. The cost of health care will soar to $3.6 billion? What a deal that would be.

Then there's this little gem I noticed from an article about the hazards of microwaving your food:

"By comparison, microwaves from the sun are based on principles of pulsed direct current (DC) that don't create frictional heat; microwave ovens use alternating current (AC) creating frictional heat."

Does he really think that there is any energy from the sun traveling in a wave with a frequency of zero? The concept of direct current is not even applicable here. MicroWAVES are oscillating just like any other wave from the sun.
