Kat is having a battle with her computer today, so I’m stepping out of poliblog-land again to bring you some sweetmeats for the weekend.
- Where did the WMD go? An interview with an ex-weapons inspector who says he knows. And some background on the guy. You decide.
- Why did Venus – Earth’s evil twin – go bad?
- Decaf may be worse for your heart than regular. I knew anything that tasted that bland couldn’t be good for me!
- In the 50’s, aliens took contactees on solar tours and warned about the dangers of nuclear weapons – now they kidnap people and steal DNA. What changed? Or is it all a big con?
- A study of fossil dinosaur dung has for the first time confirmed that the ancient reptiles ate grass.
- For your weekend reading – a compilation of Don Juan’s teachings culled from the books by Carlos Castaneda. A sort of Cliff Notes for Shamanism.
- Is Huddersfield, England really a UFO hot spot?
- Legally High – altered trance states without drugs. There’s some music suggestions you could listen to while reading Castaneda.
- Or if you prefer the real thing then the Peyote Way Church is a real registered religion in Arizona.
- In Long Beach, USA, police and local military experts are probing UFO footage.
- Another blow for the ID guys as a missing link in the fossil record of prehistoric (now-extinct) marine reptiles turns up. Did God just put it there – in Texas, no less – for a laugh?
- The results of Gravity Probe B should reveal the shape of space-time around Earth–and, possibly, the vortex.
- Fast reader? If you’re done with Don Juan then here’s an online copy of the entirety of Aldous Huxley’s ‘Doors of Perception’. Anyone spotted today’s TDG theme yet?
- The Surprising Origin of Venom Revealed.
- in 2001, Florida tested Kabbalisticly blessed water to see if its supernatural powers would cure citrus canker. The person who ordered the tests is now a US Congresswoman…
- Tiny zircon crystals dug up from ancient Australian deposits appear to have been formed right after the birth of the planet — a finding that suggests that early on, Earth had a cool crust much like today’s that could have harbored life, scientists said on Thursday.
- US bird flu funds stall as virus spreads in China
- Will global warming submerge coastal New Jersey? Will it be a good or bad thing?
- Village Voice – Say ‘Yes’ to Drugs and Unveil the Secrets of Ancient Civilizations – talking about Graham Hancock’s new book, “Supernatural”.
- Waddaya mean, you haven’t read Greg’s review of Hancock’s latest? That was the whole point of today’s theme!
Quote of the Day:
Nothing in the world is a gift. Whatever there is to learn has to be learned the hard way.
