Skeptics with a K: Episode #027


More homeopathy (!), treating impotence, victimising Bosnians and permanent gastric fistulas. Diagnosed by passages from the Koran, it’s Skeptics with a K.

    Just slipped “primordial dwarfism” in there! 🙂

    OOoh the man with the bullet? Wasn’t Alexis St Martin (or John?) was it- vague memories from GCSE biology being told he was a very lucky man because first he was shot, and then spent the rest of his life being used for experiments about digestion. Lucky chap indeed. Guess I’ll have to listen to the episode now to find out!

    If we’re grandfathering in old remedies, then I’m going on a cocaine bender to cure my improperly balanced humors.

    I insist you go and visit him Marsh to experience his ‘special powers’ first hand, mainly so I can found out what has to be wrong with you that you have to throw something in the river. I wonder if it is river specific, or will any old river do??!
    So many questions!

    I’m pretty sure he said “spiritual power” not “special power.” Not that it makes much difference…

    I have to point out a fact-flaw in your latest podcast. You were giving the poor meteor hounded guy a hard time and saying that no advanced alien race would use space rocks as weapons.
    This is untrue. In the war doco “The Last Starfighter”, this was the main weapon used by the OverLords Xur and Kril against the peaceful yet technologically superior federation.
    A slight oversight on your behalf which i am always happy to correct.

    If ever a film needed to be remade in these days of hyper-real war/combat games it is The Last Starfighter. Just don’t get too high a score on Ghost Recon or you’ll find yourself fighting the lizardmen of Garnesh III…
