I came across an article in Slate titled Dr. Wilhelm Reich's Orgasm-Powered Cloudbuster, and you don't think I'm not clicking on that, do you?
Apparently Dr. Reich, an early psychoanalyst and a contemporary of Freud, believed that orgasmic energy could control the weather. The device pictured at right is one of his actual cloudbusters, at the site of his Maine laboratory.
Now, I've had plenty of orgasms that felt like they might have the power to control the weather...or maybe even alter the space/time continuum. But even I wouldn't go this far!
