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!

Pedant[edit]

!! Acei9 09:30, 24 June 2010 (UTC)

I admit it. There's an old Two Ronnies sketch (Jehospahat & Jones) where they have a song called "We heard what she said but we knew what she meant". Sometimes it helps to clarify for the benefit of those less astute.  Lily Inspirate me. 10:03, 24 June 2010 (UTC)
I humbly submit to your pedantic nature. Acei9 10:06, 24 June 2010 (UTC)

LOL!!![edit]

My God, I laugh at how much I've ruined this site!!! Are you such an idiot? I only ever edit under the 86... IP. This was clearly 82... IP. I laughed so hard when I read your reaction to this!!!

This is surely proof that RW has become a xenophobic website suspicious of every IP post or any post critical of the site and not by a long time member. I am sorry, but there are more critics on the internet of RW than just me!! 86.40.102.99 (talk) 14:30, 7 July 2010 (UTC)

MarcusFail. CrundyTalk nerdy to me 14:37, 7 July 2010 (UTC)

Hmm, Marcus from your pungent spraymarks we know that you are (or were) a student in Dublin and come from Galway so being able to post from 2 IP addresses at the same time is not hard with something like Logmein. And isn't it strange that you were able to respond so quickly to an edit from a BoN (which isn't yours)? I concur with, Crundy; epic fail .  Lily Inspirate me. 14:51, 7 July 2010 (UTC)
What does Crundy's edit prove? That there are at least two people in Ireland who know how to use a computer? (Add in CR and DoggedPersistance) Ireland is a country of 4 million people, I don't follow the reasoning at all. Actually I do follow the reasoning, but its so stupid it barely deserves even a breath of contempt (I believe it is - one person from Ireland posted something and another person from Ireland posted something else = MC is both persons because MC is from Ireland) Absolutely pathetic and proof of how far this site has deteriorated.
Furthermore, my edit was TWO HOURS after the even. LILY FAIL. 86.40.102.99 (talk) 16:00, 7 July 2010 (UTC)
Two hours? So what? I don't hang around watching every change and I don't expect anyone else to either. You really are a moron.  Lily Inspirate me. 21:37, 7 July 2010 (UTC)
Spotting an MC edit is as easy as spotting a turd on a bedsheet, and just about as welcome. It doesn't matter what IP address he uses the lack of originality will always betray him. What a wanker. Jack Hughes (talk) 16:05, 7 July 2010 (UTC)
How come then you can never tell who and what is my sock? The amount of socks I have on this site would truly shock you. I just find it hilarious that all newcomers who dislike your site will be branded MC straight away. So much for this being a haven for free speech. Absolutely despicable. 86.40.102.99 (talk) 16:17, 7 July 2010 (UTC)
May I just point out that I am not a sock of Marcus? Steven Kavanagh (talk) 17:59, 7 July 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, but you would say that, wouldn't you. Evilgrin0003.gif Also. I'm not a sock. And neither is my wife. Scarlet A.pngmoral 18:16, 7 July 2010 (UTC)
I am a sock of Marcus, as well as a real life split personality. I'm the one which ventures outside for more than milk and dole money. SJ Debaser 12:02, 10 July 2010 (UTC)
So... is this it? Is that how this is going to get resolved? Ignore the fact that you were wrong, but persist with squashing freedom of speech anyway? Its absolutely pathetic how far this website has degenerated.
At least have the self preservation to admit you were wrong and move on with it. This is truly sad. Truly sad. Its terrible what happened here, it really is. 86.40.196.30 (talk) 18:16, 9 July 2010 (UTC)
I squashed nothing, now go home back to your mammy.  Lily Inspirate me. 18:18, 9 July 2010 (UTC)
Stop being obtuse. Apologise for being wrong. Apologise for repressing freedom of speech. 86.40.196.30 (talk) 18:20, 9 July 2010 (UTC)
I did not repress anyone's freedom of speech and now I'm going out for the night because I have a life, unlike you, you snivelling little whiner.  Lily Inspirate me. 18:25, 9 July 2010 (UTC)
Thanks. I'll stay in with my cousins knicker collection. Mmmmm. 86.40.196.30 (talk) 19:18, 9 July 2010 (UTC)

Sorry[edit]

Didn't mean to rain on your parade. Friends.gif 13:26, 19 July 2010 (UTC) SusanG Toast

Thanks chuck, but it wasn't a problem. I had added some duplicate stuff which I then took out.  Lily Inspirate me. 13:35, 19 July 2010 (UTC)

I know you were just too modest to ask[edit]

Lily, Lily, oh my Lily
Your look is chilly
Your edits are silly
But I love you anyway
(Don't tell SusanG)

I remember the first time I saw you
Because you saw me too
And that was something new

I noticed your bleached hair
And wanted to shout in the air:
"Are they real? Are they false?"

But your look made me speechless
And now I must confess
I dreamed about you, undressed

But that was a mistake
A mistake you should no more make
Thank god that Susan's on a wikibreak!

Gayness[edit]

My friend is open about it on Facebook where any cunt can see it, and I loathe Facebook for people that go all overly-emotional on it and act totally different in real life. I didn't out him to anyone, people asked and I told the truth. I'm comfortable with the fact that he's gay, but when you've known someone your whole life and then they turn round to you and tell you a huge aspect of their life has just changed, changing the way they think, feel and act around other people, it takes a bit of getting used to. I hope you haven't got the impression I'm a gobby bastard. SJ Debaser 13:15, 28 August 2010 (UTC)

I understand what you're saying but it just sounds like you may be a gobby bastard after a few bevvies. But hey, it happens to us all. :(  Lily Inspirate me. 13:26, 28 August 2010 (UTC)
I'm not a gobby bastard, I'm just a blithering idiot. SJ Debaser 18:35, 28 August 2010 (UTC)
I can't say fairer than that.  Lily Inspirate me. 09:40, 29 August 2010 (UTC)

Qur'an[edit]

To be fair to the user, we do have the annotated bible (old and new testaments), which is a side by side with very few comments. Why not do the same with the Qur'an? CrundyTalk nerdy to me 08:36, 15 September 2010 (UTC)

Crundy, I've responded on Prick's talk page.  Lily Inspirate me. 08:50, 15 September 2010 (UTC)
Are your scared the Muslims will do something to you if you attack the Koran the way you attack the Bible? They're both as irrational as each other.— Unsigned, by: 87.113.21.156 / talk / contribs
No, the annotated pages are a waste of space as they seem to add very little. Analysis of individual books of the Qu'ran could be perfectly on mission.  Lily Inspirate me. 10:02, 15 September 2010 (UTC)
There is now a forum thread for this.--BobSpring is sprung! 09:30, 15 September 2010 (UTC)

Weather[edit]

Whats the snow like in Liverpool? Redchuck.gif ГенгисIs the Pope a Catholic? 20:10, 1 December 2010 (UTC)

It's white and cold.  Lily Inspirate me. 20:11, 1 December 2010 (UTC)
Hah, bloody hah! No, how bad is it? I've got an appointment at Broad Green hospital tomorrow morning. Redchuck.gif ГенгисIs the Pope a Catholic? 20:27, 1 December 2010 (UTC)
Looks like carnage from where I am sitting (In my office watching the world news in 20 degree sunlight). Aceword up 20:31, 1 December 2010 (UTC)
(EC) We're expecting a few flurries overnight but in general there isn't much around. Formby hasn't had much more than a powder dusting, unlike the eastern side of the Pennines. Only two schools closed in the whole of Merseyside - and that was probably down to vandalism.  Lily Inspirate me. 20:33, 1 December 2010 (UTC)
@ Ace. I don't know what the rest of the country is moaning about. It's lovely up here.  Lily Inspirate me. 20:33, 1 December 2010 (UTC)
When I was in the UK I found people complained about too much snow, too little snow, too much sun, too hot, too rain, too little rain etc. Seemed to me to be a national pastime! Aceword up 20:39, 1 December 2010 (UTC)
"East of the Pennines". I was going to go to Lincoln's Christmas Fair on Friday, but trains aren't running. Non.gif 20:43, 1 December 2010 (UTC) SusanG Toast
Lily, thanks. I'll allow myself some extra travel time anyway because the roads on the borders are not gritted. Ace, don't you know that we're just wingeing poms and will moan about anything? Redchuck.gif ГенгисIs the Pope a Catholic? 20:49, 1 December 2010 (UTC)
Last January was worse for us and this is nowhere near as bad as the last early snow in 1993 when our house was without power for 7 days and Mrs. K was reduced to sleeping and cooking in the living room because of our woodburning stove. I was somewhere warm at the time. Redchuck.gif ГенгисIs the Pope a Catholic? 20:52, 1 December 2010 (UTC)
All the roads are clear. Hope the appt. isn't anything serious.  Lily Inspirate me. 20:59, 1 December 2010 (UTC)
Hopefully just to be given the all clear from my cardio consultant - if I don't come down with the winter vomiting bug which SWMBO is currently indisposed with. Redchuck.gif ГенгисIs the Pope a Catholic? 21:18, 1 December 2010 (UTC)
