Electro-Gravity

Since I first heard of them in 2002 I've been fascinated with Lifters. For the uninitiated a Lifter is a piece of tinfoil on a blasa wood frame with 30,000+ volts running through it. Why's it called a Lifter? Because it levitates.

Some physicists have attributed this to phenomenom as ionic wind, but the Lifter community thinks their full of shit. I cam across this paper [free.fr] written by a guy a Rutgers that tries to draw some kind of parallels between gravity and electrostatic forces. Interesting. Personally I've always felt that some provable theory relating magnetics/electrics to gravity in the hopes of some kind of engineering application for (should I say it :o) anti-gravity. Uh-oh, I've said it. I hope no one thinks any less of me... ;-)
