RationalWiki's 2018 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 seeing this today donates $5, we will meet our goal for 2018.

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

Donations so far: $3383Goal: $5000

I've never written these sort of things down, but once in a thought experiment gone crazy I got from a candle-powered hot air balloon to a militarily undefeatable pariah state that nevertheless only controlled the territory of a few residential suburbs...

My mom got me St. John's Wort, but I looked it up (and what I mean by that is I went to the RationalWiki search bar and typed in "St. John's Wort") and it doesn't seem to be effective. :( Also, in my fictional universe, there are plant people and giant tentacled cantaur-ish spider-like militaristic, logical beasts that are trying to conquer the known universe for no particular reason.


i rarely actually write them down, and what i do is ussualy just put into png world maps i stole from commons. once, in a map i started about the time i got my desktop, i did an alternate history WW2 that ended with the US falling into a fascist state after defeating the soviets, and when i had to backup stuff so i could wipe my harddrive, i saved the map but not the spreadsheet with the events on it. needless to say i was annoyed
