Open your mind sufficiently…

and people will throw garbage in it…

Well this otherwise creepy video makes some good points about basic priciples of research, pointing out flaws in thinking that have earned the Paranormal plenty of ridicule. Most of us have fallen in one of these mind-traps, one way or another..

But the graphics.. Seriously creepy..

Apocalypse revisited: 2012 persists..


Well, it seems that one way or another the world as we know it ends in 2012. Be it a meteor strike, an Alien invasion or, as a group of NASA researchers have pointed out, a huge wave of Intense solar flares to erupt in 2012, practically destroying the world's electromagnetic grid and Information Systems. This Wired article even has a Q&A with the CEO of an “electromagnetic damage consulting company” (WTF?)..

After reports that solar flares have been slowing down for the past months, a phenomenon which could lead to a mini Ice Age, the exact opposite of the said phenomenon threatens our hard-earned peace of mind. Or the semblance of one.

Interesting times are coming. I hope..
