    Which Theory May Explain Psi Phenomena?

    Yes I must admit I hate the skeptic attitude of "no, that's impossible" whereas the Fortean is "ooh, that's interesting, lets have a look".

    Which Theory May Explain Psi Phenomena?

    With this logic then we should ignore the speed abilities of Usain Bolt as he does not represent the majority and is merely an outlier? Some people can do something so we investigate them and compare them to those who cannot. Those who study parapsychology at university only claim a small...

    Had I seen them before I wrote my card I would have so used them, next year perhaps!

    How Are You Spending Valentines Day?

    How I am spending Valentine's Day? Working. By which I mean washing and drying my desk and moving piles of papers around and even chucking things away. And eventually doing some writing and updating the website for the article I am working on.

    Folk Horror

    I saw all of the rave reviews about it and was really lookign forward to it and then when I watched it... Never seen A Field in England either so can't comment on that. Did however watch The Lair of the White Worm on Monday (for the umpteenth time) still fun apart from some strange accents.

    What Is 'Fortean'?

    A smile is not what was raised, my blood pressure perhaps! I once reviewed a visitor attraction which gave me bacon rolls. I’m sure they probably got an extra star for that,

    Folk Horror

    Am I alone in thinking The VVitch so far up itself as to be trash? I’d rather watch The Wicker Tree to be honest.

    What Is 'Fortean'?

    I’ll join you in the bacon roll and bitching about that article. I’m sure it would be petty for me to point out FT was founded in 1973 which isn’t the late ‘70’s so I won’t mention it.

    Tales Of A Flat Earth

    The sun orbits around the North Pole and it is 3 000 miles away and light has a limited range so the light shines only on the area it is close to.

    Tales Of A Flat Earth

    He’s a true believer so actual facts may not help! Anything from NASA is of course not valid so that causes an instant problem. It is however interesting to hear their arguments. It didn’t come up but I suspect he may be a Young Earth Creationist as well.

    Tales Of A Flat Earth

    Recently visited the Flat Earth shop in Inverness. Bought a book turns out it’s a reprint of a book from 1875, I’ll be honest I was looking for something more up to date. The owner(?) is there to discuss with you, no hard sell of the merchandise but we spent up to an hour there talking to him...

    The Troll's Head

    As I’m sure you know the haggis has legs shorter on one side than the other to easily allow them to run around mountains. Simply make them flee in the opposite direction and they will fall over and be easy to catch. Simples.

    David Icke & His Work

    His two most recent U.K. tours had problems with venues. Groups would complain he was speaking there and the booking would be cancelled at short notice. In the end he stopped publishing the venue details and you were only informed of it shortly before the actual talk.
