    David Icke & His Work

    The cave is in the Sahara. It shows the first attempts by lizards to pose as humans I guess. https://news.nationalgeographic.com/2016/02/160225-sahara-rock-art-stencils-egypt-caves-reptiles/

    What TV Are You Watching?

    I don't know who Tiffany is but I'm also quite enjoying The Umbrella Academy. I thought it would be some has-been superheroes uniting again to fight a supervillain but it's rather more complex.

    Worst British Accent Attempt. Ever.

    In Penny Dreadful's first season Billie Piper plays a prostitute who I gather is meant to be northern irish. Horrid.

    Why No Classes On Cryptozoology?

    I meant have any of the self-styled cryptozoologists actually found new species? Just a simple beetle for example.

    Which Theory May Explain Psi Phenomena?

    A psychic prodigy would still show up in the statistics. The problem is the researchers never encounter people like that, they just got people who might do slightly better than chance. A Bolt would be a much better thing.

    Serial Killers

    Sorry, I seem to have gotten my depraved comic book characters mixed up. Incidentally, someone wrote a comic book about their friendship with Jeffrey Dahmer.

    The website/social media thingy Reddit has just had an investment of $150 million from chinese tech company Tencent. This company Tencent are basically the tech arm of big brother in China, handling the online censorship and such. I'm sure it will be fine.

    Which Theory May Explain Psi Phenomena?

    I was watching Duck Quacks Don't Echo the other day, where they mentioned how when a couple sit and look at each other, their heart beats synchronise. This seems rather odd if real, seeing as I can't think of any good mechanism for it. Nothing for one heart to know how the other heart is...

    In Verona, Italy you can go see Juliet's house and the balcony where she was wooed by Romeo. Of course neither were real people and according to a friend from Verona, the balcony is not even original to the house.

    Atheism

    I was at a local library once, and some autism organisation had put up a giant poster, showing historical characters with autism. They seemed to have just decided to pick every smart guy in history. Who knows how they diagnosed them.

    Ever Met Anyone Famous?

    I saw a local celebrity at the subway, who performs under the name Timbuktu. Sadly I think I also stared a bit too much trying to figure out if it was really him. I've also met and chatted with a few famous scientists but I guess most people would have no idea who they are.

    They say Genghis Khan was a redhead. Strange we then don't see more asian redheads.

    In Japan, You Are What Your Blood Type Is

    There's an article in New Scientist on how bloodtype and gut bacteria seem linked. Considering how we are learning the stomach and gut bacteria seems to play a role in personality, I wonder where this might be headed. Your gut bacteria may match your blood group but we don't know why
