My ex was into that shit. She genuinely believed that her dad was capable of going into a trance and observing her from afar. They both claimed that her grandmother could do it too, and that the two of them (she and my ex's dad) used to go on "astral trips" together. Then there were a bunch of confirmation biases which stemed from her dad calling her at just the right time to tell her not to do whatever it was she had been secretly planning to do; or some other minute and coincidental thing like that.

We like to joke about creationists "watching the Flintstones like it's a documentary". Well, these nutters watch The Shining like it's a damn documentary. Rolleyes

There's this guy we know, he was involved with a woman online, who believed that shit. She asked him once if he could feel rheir "connection". He said sure. Why not. He never took any of it seriously thought the idea was fun. Well, she totally believed it and now since she's spent hours 'recapping' her energy or memories or whatever...she claims he astrally beat her and made her hate her husband (he didn't know she was married)! Now that he's out of her life she's happier and loves her husband again! Lmao. Nutter is right!


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

In fairness, the only time I've encountered liquid latex is...well...

oh come on now, you can't give a build up like that and not deliver!

on second thought, I don't wanna know.....disregard transmission...Confused

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

Today I "learned" that Darwin had stolen Wallace's theory of evolution, and thus "was a cheat". My biology teacher (whom I had previously mentioned) told my class this during the final lesson today.

I checked up on this and it would seem that my teacher might just be wrong on this on.

Your teacher is quite wrong, to the point of slander.

I learned the closest living relative of primates is the tree shrew.

This is a picture of Purgatorius, considered to be the earliest primate. Notice any similarities?
