    Robert Lancaster who is the man behind the excellent site StopSylvia.com decided that it was time that he bit the bullet and go to see The Hoarse Voiced Prophet in a Vegas appearance. True Believers email him to tell him that he knows nothing about Sylvia, and that he’d Really Understand if he just went […]

    Dragon Con 2008 Paranoia Post

    by  • 6/2/2008 • geek, science, skeptic • 1 Comment

    Ninety days left until labour day weekend. Will find the budget room yet. There’s simply no way that I’ll be able to attend The Amazing Meeting in the next couple years; Dragon Con is going to be my only chance to meet James Randi. The Skeptics actually have a real track this year, rather than […]

    Healing The Natural Way

    by  • 5/7/2008 • health, science, skeptic • 0 Comments

    I was having a discussion about the latest proposed changes to the food and drug act in Canada (Bill C-51), and I mentioned something disparaging about the people making the claims that Big Pharma was raping someone’s saintly, virginal grandmother for growing her own herbs in her garden. I think I might have suggested that […]

    Earth Hour; sign up with your commitment to turn off all the lights in your house for one whole hour tonight. Convince your friends and family to do so as well. Just the lights; you can leave the TV on, burn oil to heat your house, and use paraffin candles and flashlights to get around. […]

    The Chaser’s War on Everything

    by  • 11/22/2007 • humor, skeptic, video • 0 Comments

    I’ve downloaded a couple episodes of Chaser’s War on Everything, and while I have to admit to being a bit confused by about 30% of the pop culture references, it did make for a good show. There’s little that we really get here in North America of what it’s like down under. Name a TV […]

    Watch as I use the power of my mind…

    by  • 11/11/2007 • skeptic, video • 0 Comments

    Among spoon bending tricks, I have seen some decent sleight of hand variations that have taken me by surprise. It’s like a well done card trick where, even though I know that you’re forcing my card pick (3 of Clubs again?) it’s still impressive. Yes I know that you can’t really saw someone in half, […]

    Reviving the Skeptical Dog

    by  • 9/10/2007 • skeptic • 0 Comments

    After months of sitting idle, I’ve finally made a post to the Skeptical Dog site again. Partly because I blew up the DNS entry for foo.ca and it hasn’t fully refreshed in my ISP’s servers, and partly because the visit to Dragon*Con renewed my interest in the Skeptical Dog… Discussion with a true believer…
