What about the John Paul II assassination Bulgarian connection (allegedly)? 82.198.250.69 (talk) 17:56, 19 May 2010 (UTC)

What about it? -- Nx / talk 18:56, 19 May 2010 (UTC)
Why should it be included? The connection was not proven, and not everything can be included in a brief history (for example, the "umbrella murder" is not included too). RationalWiki is not trying to be a mirror of Wikipedia. The on-mission part of the article is the (unfinished) "Local woo" section. The history is provided as a general outline to put some things in context. (And writing it was fun.) --ZooGuard (talk) 07:44, 20 May 2010 (UTC)

Stuff that needs to be included[edit]

A TODO list of stuff to be included in the "Local woo" section (or elsewhere). Suggestions are welcome.--ZooGuard (talk) 08:06, 28 May 2010 (UTC)

  • Vladimir Terziski (more "exported" than "local")
  • "that hole"
  • the Sniffex fiasco (Randi has covered it a few times)

Also, Missiony Question? What does this article have to do with (and barely is enough) the "mission"? ħumanUser talk:Human 08:43, 28 May 2010 (UTC)

The "Local woo" section is supposed to be a) on mission and b) much larger, but I can only do sporadic additions. The "Vanga" section itself may need a separate article if fully developed.
As for the rest, see Category:Countries - the article existed, I just decided to expand it.--ZooGuard (talk) 09:03, 28 May 2010 (UTC)
Indeed, that's what I thought. And why I said "barely is enough". ħumanUser talk:Human 09:17, 28 May 2010 (UTC)

Llinkdump: "That hole" in Tsarichina in English[edit]

Thanks to an anonymous Bulgarian poster at GLP I found out that some materials about the story are available in English. Take all of this with a cartload of salt. :)

How is this "rational"?[edit]

For a wiki claiming to be scientific and rational, this is some of the worst, most biased pieces of bile I've ever read. And you claim Conservapedia is bad? This page literally looks like an angry 13 year-old wrote it. A pathetic excuse for a website. — Unsigned, by: Brhzgh / talk / contribs

Please feel free to bring up specific concerns so that we may work together to improve the article. Thanks! Polar Bear in the Jungle Peter Tosh > Bob Marley 21:11, 11 February 2013 (UTC)

World War III in [the] late 2000s[edit]

This refers to the decade, right? If so it should probably be changed (to what though?), as it could be confused with the century which isn't exactly over yet. Peter mqzp 02:50, 6 March 2013 (UTC)

Aughts? TyJFBAA 02:53, 6 March 2013 (UTC)
Never heard that one before. Peter mqzp 07:16, 6 March 2013 (UTC)
