  1. Have you considered some for your symphorophilia ?
  2. Death-related post from LC. Big surprise there. #symphorophilia
  3. I think the "Viking" claims are a bit fanciful - having Depuytren's doesn't necessarily mean a particularly strong link to Viking DNA, and if it's definitively linked to Scandinavian DNA, it can make up significantly less than 5% of your DNA makeup, which is quite some distance from being "a Viking".

    Chemtrails

    Oh, God. The cliched "water tanks on a plane" shot. That's such a classic, predictable stage in the beliefs of Chemtrailies - I personally like the ones that have unrelated photo content crudely inserted onto them to make them "even more convincing". The "water tanks" shot is such a cliche that even the Wikipedia page on Chemtrail conspiracies has a large section debunking it - planes are tested with water tanks during their testing phase, and a casual stroll through Youtube will show you plenty of footage of the process. HAARP is real, but it's not "controlling the weather". It's

    Chemtrails

    "Chemtrails" would be testable and verifiable if they existed - but in my experience, the believers don't seem to be interested in proof, positive or negative, instead using it as a frame around a series of conspiracy theories. Proof one way or the other would break the cycle of attribution. I sat in on a meeting of believers, and the interesting thing for me was that there were lots of connections being made between threads - there were isolated people trying to be the voice of reason, but there was mainly lots of talk of the ancient "weather as a force multiplier" document, the "chemtr
  6. Poor attempt from TJ there. Always with the odd two-part names, the strange icons and the elaborate back-story. TJ needs help, not attention.
  7. 'Mooragh' was originally pronounced with a soft -gh, but the originally-gaelic sounds of -ch and -gh have largely been lost amongst the monoglot English speakers living in the North over the past 50 years or so as the Anglo-Manx dialect has declined and been replaced with a generic bastardised Northern English dialect. Ballaugh was originally Balley-ny-loghey and the 'loghey' was also originally pronounced with a soft -gh. The soft sounds of Manx and Anglo-Manx aren't present in Northern English dialect, so they're hardened to 'K' or softened to 'F' - hence 'Moorack' and 'Ballaff' amongst tho

    Eels

    Eels have to be returned if they're caught according to the regs. Makes sense since there's so few around. Used to be some whoppers in the stream running down from the Cornaa fish farm.
  9. Some on Facebook are posting screenshots of the original T&Cs that appear to promise refunds if insufficient numbers were sold. They have also posted shots after the T&Cs were changed at a later date (May ?) that have different arrangements. Their issue appears to be with the changes of the conditions, something which has some past legal precedent, so it will be an interesting outcome.
  10. The FB group has a number of members highlighting that the terms and conditions have varied considerably from the initial terms that offered a full refund to all participants. I don't think that the disclaimer in the terms about changes to the T&Cs will be strong enough to insulate the promoter from further legal involvement - there have been a number of past legal actions under English law against promoters who changed T&Cs that were later ruled as unfair, so there is precedent around. Be interesting to see how this one progresses, as on the FB group, it says that some participants ha
  11. 1) You'll note my post said "accept the validity of the position that the earth is not flat" - it didn't say you believe that the earth is flat. You'd have to be a complete muppet to believe that. 2) Numerous pieces of evidence have been posted. I posted videos recently (you failed to respond in a meaningful way and posted a quote that you then denied was by the person that you credited with the quote - not a great response tbh) and China has posted some replicable experiments that you failed to follow up on, or respond in anything other than your usual bizarre fashion. That's an entrench
  12. Again the usual impasse. Mad Paul's position is the same as the argument of a hermit who's never left Foxdale and refuses to believe there is a world outside. The hermit will not believe the testimony of any strangers from outside, but at the same time is unwi!ling to leave Foxdale to witness the world himself. Paul will not accept the validity of the position that the world is not flat, even from people who have witnessed the curvature of the earth themselves, but at the same time will not test their arguments himself. As with the Foxdale hermit, he is unwilling to leave his entrenched p
  13. Poor quality trolling. You were whining pitifully about ad hominem attacks recently, but on this page alone you've insulted several people just for daring to have (correct) opinions that differ from your own weird perspective. The thread stopped being about science and alternate perspectives on reality some time ago, and it's just become a vehicle for your ad hominem attacks, (which are against the new policies) and for your desperate attention-seeking. What a lonely life you must lead.
  14. This thread is over. Any proof provided is either ignored or dismissed, and Mad Paul just responds with ad hominem attacks when questioned. Any point to it going on ?
