Thothenki wants to share this article from MentalFloss that says “According to the Oxford University Press Dictionary of Superstitions, the first reference to Friday the 13th itself wasn’t until 1913. (So despite actually occurring on Friday, October 13, 1307, the popular notion that the Friday the 13th stigma comes from the date on which the famed order of the Knights Templar were wiped out by King Philip of France is just a coincidence.)

So why do skyscrapers skip the 13th floor, and other such superstitions persist? … Read the rest

Shaving Psychic Piglets

Shaving a piglet: lots of screaming and not much wool.
Shaving a piglet: lots of screaming and not much wool.

Putin called demands for Snowden’s extradition “shaving a piglet: lots of squealing and not much wool!” I would suggest there are piglets all over – even a psychic one!

First let us consider that despite the current political atmosphere humans are indeed evolving as we are taught in school.  … Read the rest

But I Don’t Wanna Be The Bad Guy!

Seems Star Wars wants you to identify with the faceless soldiers shooting at Luke and Leia. First a sympathetic Darth Vader – How does Anakin FEEL in that helmet? – and now your own face behind the mask of death. Sigh.… Read the rest

Being recognized in public was never like this!

Big brother’s would-be watchdog warns “Brace yourself for the next wave in the surveillance state. It’s coming at us with a lethal one-two punch in 2014.”

To start with, there’s the government’s integration of facial recognition software and other biometric markers into its identification data programs.

You Think I Am Crazy!

Dr. Von Ikken says “Vindication at last!  It’s not a wacko conspiracy theory unless you say so!”  He insists reptoids built the pyramids, and anyone who says he is crazy is shifting the focus ad gaudia, or rather, ad hominem!
Here is a video that backs him up, asserting that “real skeptics question everything, including their own assumptions.  … Read the rest

Luke’s Change: Death Star False Flag?

I knew it! I just knew it!
Sooner or later a mashup of Star Wars and the 911 Truthers would appear. And this well-done lampoon of the Loose Change documentary is called Luke’s Change.

Clam Digs Near Sydney

ANN ARBOR— Cryptic comments seem to have an ambiguous, obscure or hidden meaning. In biology, cryptic species are outwardly indistinguishable groups whose differences are hidden inside their genes.

Two University of Michigan marine biologists have identified three cryptic species of tiny clams, long believed to be members of the same species, which have been hiding in plain view along the rocky shores of southern Australia for millions of years.… Read the rest
