Re: " Gary Mannion discovers the world "

Unfortunately, most of the videos of Mannion faking the seance, which appeared in June 2016, are no longer available. The only surviving video is this, as far as I'm aware. As Jon Donnis wrote,"Removing his shirt and swinging it around to create a breeze of body odour!" https://www.instagram.com/p/B...

Overrated Tourist Traps to Avoid at All Costs.

All a matter of opinion, of course. Of the 15, I think I've visited 4, but not in the last 30 years. Just click on the "Start Slideshow" link.

Re: The Queen of the Night and top F.

Only stumbled across this tonight - the wonderful Arleen Auger (September 13, 1939 – June 10, 1993). Dated sound and not the most dramatic of performances, but a stunning voice.

"Alternative Math(s)"

A well meaning math(s) teacher finds herself trumped by a post-fact America.

Almost a year old, but a big smile at the end! :yay

"You can’t breathe through your stomach."

Scott Gavura discusses the claims about GP8’s "Enhanced Solubility Water." It is claimed it "contains up to 400% as much dissolved oxygen as untreated water." Conclusion: Snake oil, without the snake or the oil Like homeopathy, which promises all the benefits of medicine without the actual medicine,...

Re: Coconut oil

Well, "pure poison" is obviously an exaggeration. That it isn't good for you has been known for a long time. The NHS recommends against consumption. But it is probably not quite as bad for you as palm oil and that is in lots and lots of things. The Karin Michaels comment is all over the news channe...

Re: Late night music.

Classic Aretha...rough sound from 1968.

ETA. Sadly, the video I posted is no longer available for copyright reasons. But here is another version of "Chain of Fools" combined with "Respect". Sweden (Live 1968).

And an early recording from 1962, apparently.

Drug-Induced Near Death Experience.

In a new article, Steven Novella writes about a recent study looking at the hallucinogen DMT (N,N-Dimethyltryptamine) and how aspects of human consciousness can be altered. The most fundamental implication of this research, and other similar research, is that fantastical, religious, mystical, and pa...

Psychic Sally to help CBB housemates get in touch with their dead careers.

It is hoped that the ageing TV medium and psychic might be able to pull her usual trick of making up some bullshit for the more gullible housemates and convince them that their dead careers are back within reach again, all for the amusement of millions of sneering viewers. http://newsthump.com/2018...

Re: Boris Johnson on the Burka

comes over as a stupid, blundering buffoon but there must be more to him than that. In my opinion, that's just a small part of the act. Everything Johnson says or does is calculated to promote his personal ambitions to become Tory leader and PM. He is sufficiently unscrupulous, devious and mendacio...

I've been doing some catching up on the last episodes of what is supposed to be the final series. I still find the opening music sort of hypnotic, but can hardly make out most of the words. This might be a repeat post, but here are the lyrics. "The name of the soundtrack for the Danish-Swedish crime...
