-1Timothy Leary shares his thoughts on the Occupy Wall Street protest, despite having died fifteen years ago.
8"Deliverance minister" Julie critiques the accuracy of the exorcisms in The Rite. Next she'll be telling us Anthony Hopkins can't play a cannibal for beans either.
Bonus: Julie herself seems to be channeling the spirit of Jack Chick when she confuses a Catholic medallion with a "a charm that gives these demonic spirits the authority to be there."
More Bonus: If it's October, it's Demonic Awareness Month.
25Anthony Watts before the Berkeley Earth Surface Temperature Project report: "I’m prepared to accept whatever result they produce, even if it proves my premise wrong."

(HT PZ.)
8Mike from El Segundo calls The Tech Guy to talk about audio recorders, devices with non-removable batteries and...something else he forgot to tell the call screener about.

5Art Laffer: Polishing turds since 1974.

14Failing at statistics while complaining about the looters? Just another day in Wingnuttia.
24The music is calm and sad, the speech juxtaposed with shots of an idyllic life in the county. The interview builds to a crescendo of sorrow as the woman describes how the law was rushed through, without consultation, without referendum. This is a terrible tragedy... why did they let gay people marry each other?
2According to this quack, Steve Jobs is a prime example that pancreatic cancer CAN be cured: [1]
18In what universe is the phrase "O'Reilly Crushes Atheist Richard Dawkins" Fair and Balanced?

6David Icke: "Look at what what they're putting your water!"
14"President Obama only cares about your job if you work at Planned Parenthood, America’s abortion giant."

13The Daily Fail unwittingly reveal Amanda Knox as guilty in a pre-written article - complete with "genuine" reaction quotes from prosecutors.
1010 reasons why aliens are actually fallen angels.
2British fundies are throwing a hissy fit after the Daily Fail reported that The Beeb has "turned its back on 2,000 years of Christianity" by jettisoning A.D. and B.C. for the "politically correct" C.E. and B.C.E. Of course, the fundies might not be so upset if they had considered the source. (The Lay Scientist puts in his two cents pence.)
5Bobo's latest train wreck is impressive even for him: Empathy is unnecessary because my misreading of pop neuroscience and philosophy tells me so, and something about Nazis.
