Quote of the Day:

“We have now sunk to a depth at which the restatement of the obvious is the first duty of intelligent men.”

~George Orwell

  1. Restating the obvious
    Folks like Neil Degrasse Tyson come to mind. Condescending captain obvious who tells us we’re all dummies (while helping exactly nobody, same with Carl Sagan)

    1. I beg to differ
      I honestly think we should stop with this futile “Us vs Them” mentality that’s so pervasive in the Fortean community.

      Yes, before Tyson Sagan was deeply antagonistic towards the UFO phenomenon and other things we hold in high regard. That doesn’t give us the right to discard EVERYTHING he had to say about the Universe.

      As a young curious boy, watching the translated version of Cosmos on Mexican TV was a deeply inspirational & formative experience. And for that I shall forever be grateful to him.

  2. granny got an axe
    [quote=] took matters (technically an axe) into her own hands and chopping it in the head. She didn’t WANT to chop it in the head though, she wanted to choke it to death at first [/quote]

    HOLY SHIT!!! I feel sorry for the wolf!!!
