The often aberrant behaviour we tolerate good humouredly from our neighbours across the pond appears to be reaching critical levels, possibly from the heavy solar flare storms this year. The New Zealand nautical clothing manufacturer, Events Clothing, has a new sailing shirt that features crushed crystals, mainly jade, within the polyester filaments. They say " the healing properties of crystals is widely known, but the crystals also disperse the heat from the body, bringing a cooling effect and offer UV protection. Jade itself is known to cure kidney stones and all kidney illnesses. It is also claimed to bring luck and help win games. " Hope the IRC scrutineers are on to this outside assistance.

They might have better luck among sailors with a shirt that cures liver issues.
That said, if it's glittery, I'll probably buy it. You know, for my kidneys...

The often aberrant behaviour we tolerate good humouredly from our neighbours across the pond appears to be reaching critical levels, possibly from the heavy solar flare storms this year. The New Zealand nautical clothing manufacturer, Events Clothing, has a new sailing shirt that features crushed crystals, mainly jade, within the polyester filaments. They say " the healing properties of crystals is widely known, but the crystals also disperse the heat from the body, bringing a cooling effect and offer UV protection. Jade itself is known to cure kidney stones and all kidney illnesses. It is also claimed to bring luck and help win games. " Hope the IRC scrutineers are on to this outside assistance.
