Skeptic Summary #76

By The Staff
Posted on: 1/22/2006

Fake saucers, still more Sun surfacing, a psychic offer, how to be a psychic and more!

Week ending January 21, 2006 (Vol 3, #3)

Welcome to the Skeptic Summary, a quick week-in-review guide to the Skeptic Friends Network and the rest of the skeptical world.

Forum Highlights:
Crankwatch: UFOlogy nonsense - Submit your faked UFO photos here.

Surface of the Sun, Part 3 - Before you ask, apparently it can go on for quite some time.

Editor’s Choice: My Initiation into the Psychic World… - With luck, Babs will come through.
Kil’s Evil Pick:
A twofer! So, you wanna be a psychic? (Parts 1 through 3) and 11 Techniques to Talk to the Dead (analysis of transcript excerpts of James Van Praagh (JVP) “readings” done on the “Larry King Live” show). These are offered as part of our continuing effort to mostly focus on psychics, along with all the other things we mostly focus on…
Chat Highlights:
Sunday: 7zip, a new compression method? Communicating with home-made gadgets through USB and RS-232; I2C technology; cellular phone technology, how small can they get? Also: car brands in New Zealand; holiday trips to America; Derek of Skepticality and his recovery; precognition and memories of visions of the future; general ESP discussions; the Beach Boys and members’ music; translation of parts of Swedish copyright law.

Wednesday: Started slow and then sped up. A conversation about one particular psychic led to a debate over the use of the word “delusion.” All operating systems are crap. A meat-pie anomaly, and the eggroll study continues. Intel inside Macs, Dave’s new game plus much much more…

Book of the Week:
Notes for a Memoir: On Isaac Asimov, Life, And Writing, by Janet Asimov

“Dr. Janet J. Asimov, a psychiatrist and celebrated fiction writer, has penned this delightful memoir with insight, poignancy, and wit on topics that she and her husband, Isaac Asimov, found especially meaningful over the years. From profound issues such as religion, philosophy, sex, personal identity, and mortality, to lighter subjects such as traveling together, camping, the golden thirties, and the problems and joys of writing, Asimov reveals many new and fascinating details about two engaging and creative people whose greatest creation — in addition to their writings — was the life they made together.”
