RationalWiki's 2020 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2021.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

I nominate this article for best of amusement purely on the basis of its snarky snarkilicious snarcasm. Scarlet A.pnggnostic 15:10, 9 December 2009 (UTC)

I second that because I think you're great, and I also like stuff what I writ. ConcernedResident Fightin' round the world 22:52, 9 June 2010 (UTC)

"the Wikipedia article ... does explain why infra-red is green." It does? Where? Couldn't find... ħumanUser talk:Human 23:27, 9 June 2010 (UTC)

Hmm, it must have changed since I originally popped in that link. It's down to human eyes being able to differentiate more shades of green than any other colour. I'll remove that bit though since the wiki article has lost it. 23:52, 9 June 2010 (UTC)
I thought it was something like that, ie, what monochrome do we choose? Pleez to add to our article not just delete? ħumanUser talk:Human 00:05, 10 June 2010 (UTC)
PS, whodathunkit, an article on a wiki changed! Haha! ħumanUser talk:Human 00:05, 10 June 2010 (UTC)
I blame lack of sleep and too much beer. I'll have look tomorrow. It was a side topic, but a decent bit of trivia to share. I likes trivia. ConcernedResident Fightin' round the world 00:08, 10 June 2010 (UTC)
Or too much sleep and not enough beer. It could go either way. ħumanUser talk:Human 01:47, 10 June 2010 (UTC)

Silver[edit]

I have unilaterally silvered this. Anyway, Skeptical Inquirer thinks it's good enough to reprint. Any disputes? - David Gerard (talk) 18:53, 3 December 2010 (UTC)

Not from me, exactly. I dislike giving brainstars to pieces that are too snarky, but what the hell. I'd make an exception here. Scarlet A.pnggnostic 18:58, 3 December 2010 (UTC)
It seems to cover the facts. Of course, it's got room for improvement - David Gerard (talk) 19:04, 3 December 2010 (UTC)
Split the EMF meter to a separate article, or make it a redirect to this section? They are not the only ones to use it.--ZooGuard (talk) 19:12, 3 December 2010 (UTC)
I say new article, just to keep the discussion of it in this article relevant to the topic of the article. Majintahu (talk) 01:56, 19 January 2011 (UTC)

Sensationalism[edit]

I was part of a "ghost hunting" group in Indiana. It was more of just a hobby interest for me and it was interesting to check out Cemeteries and abandoned places at night. The leader of the group was a skeptic, probably as skeptical as I was. We weren't out to "prove" anything but to just see what we get. Before I had joined the team she had told me that she had met with the TAPS team and they admitted to faking a large majority of the show. Since then I lost all respect and interest in the show, I knew it was likely faked but just the large amount that was faked simply for sensationalism dissapointed me but I can understand why.

As for the actual ghost hunting we did? We did experience strange events and I got a bit sick during one investigation that I can't really explain since I never felt like that before or since but I'm still as skeptical as ever. — Unsigned, by: Shatto / talk / contribs 13:35, 10 January 2015‎
