Meet the Cosmic Ray Deflection Society of North America (RIP Also Aswell)

Deflecting cosmic rays on the street.

 (RIP CHUCK ALSTON AKA ALSO ASWELL, GRAND FOUNDER AND POOBAH OF THE COSMIC RAY DEFLECTION SOCIETY AKA KRUDZNA INK. A native of Greensboro, North Carolina, Aswell worked for many years as a chef at New Orleans. Also, a prolific artist and thinker, Aswell led the way for numerous storied events and adventures. Following a long series of health battles, he died peacefully in his sleep last week.  For more of KRUDZNA INK, cosmic rays and related information, visit: https://www.facebook.com/groups/186903824805111/?fref=ts

The Cosmic Ray Deflection Society Theories…

Knowing, that in some future time, when the ozone layer has been further destroyed by man-made chemicals such as flourocarbons and exhaust fumes, the earth and it’s inhabitants will be mercilessly bombarded by deadly cosmic rays, the Cosmic Ray Deflection Society of North America, Inc. has been organized to discover ways of surviving the coming onslaught…Krudzna Ink is a loosely knit organization of crazed, forward thinking environmentalists dedicated to the survival of the human race in general, and life on the planet in particular…

While the society itself was formally organized in May of 1984, cosmic ray deflecting as a mental attitude was first realized in the fall of 1973 when reports first came out on the impending destruction of the ozone layer…Ozone, O3, the thin layer of our planet’s atmosphere found 20 miles up, protects us from dreaded cosmic rays. Something had to be done!!! An Anti-Cosmic Ray Suit (ACRaS) would be constructed! Man-made items that are really unnecessary and have no real value for our lives were attached to a hat and a shirt… By believing the collection of trinkets, tickets, plastics, toys, auto parts, jewelries, beads, buttons, and other trivial items would repel the cosmic rays, the CRs were actually repelled!!!

We call the point at which the cosmic rays actually start being repelled CRITICAL MASS…As you attach each piece to your cosmic ray deflection item be it hat, shirt, car, house, shield or footgear, you think that this will be the item that gives you critical mass…At some point it actually starts happening!!! We hope…

The first principle of CR Deflection has been joined by a second, more controversial theory… We now also believe that cosmic rays have a low level of intelligence which allows them to be easily confused by actions contrary to what is considered normal. Once confused, CRs tend to retreat on their own to whence they came. This Dysonberg Confusion Principle, or DCP, blends well with the society’s life-style while wearing our ACRaS and riding in the CRDMV…To put the DCP in other terms, we believe that cosmic rays are semi-intelligent and therefore easily confused…That’s why we wear foster grants, even though we are not movie stars…That’s why we shoot off fireworks on December 25 and exchange presents on July 4th…That’s why we celebrate Valloween, the only holiday celebrated twice a year on Feb 14 & Oct 31…All these activities as well as wearing our cosmic ray suits confuses the cosmic rays, which slows them down…Then you just step aside and they go past you…

here is a great link to pics of cosmic ray showers… they travel through space really fast and then hit the atmosphere and explode into hundreds of smaller points…

THE COSMIC RAY DEFLECTION SOCIETY grafic version

This is the main page for the olde geocities cosmic ray pages a sprawling thing with over 60 pages and a thousand links… like the hat comes first page above, there are a lot of broken links from 16 pages of neglect…

this is an interesting adaptation of the whole cosmic ray deflection idea, but they made a big  mistake using tinfoil on their hats as that has to do with orgone and felt or alien stuff…

It must be stated that the last page of this pdf from CERN has pics of the cosmic ray deflection society!!!
