I use it but it depends on how polite I want to be and how I assess the other person's intent. Woo fits in somewhere between pseudoscience and bullshit on the scale....

That's being rather harsh to bullshit - which is a dandy fertilizer.....


Woo = bullshit without substance.

i.e. - it sounds like bullshit, looks like bullshit and even smells like bullshit --- but it won't grow any roses.....................

The difference between prayer and masturbation - is when a guy is through masturbating - he has something to show for his efforts.

Just a bit of a forum joke.... kind of like pops himself.

He posts here fairly often and is a theist with his own personal theology that appears to have been born from a psychotic episode. Don't worry, you'll run across him before long and see for yourself.

In pops' defense...he has been talking about other things lately. He was also a victim of the Louisiana flood and has offered help to KC and others. He has a decent side.

No argument there; he has been relatively lucid lately but he's always vacillated between periods of clarity and what I can only describe as delusion. I've noticed the periods of clarity getting longer which is a hopeful sign.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.
