I came across this last night whilst reading the comments on Orac’s masterful takedown of laser Reiki, and it’s too damned funny not to share. Click for a larger image, and find that special alt med that suits you best!

Orac occasionally reposts some of his classic Insolence, which is a good thing – especially when he reposts something so mind-meltingly five-alarm Woo that I wonder where it’s been all my life. This bit of classic Insolence alternatively made me laugh, cry and howl. I ended up starting silently at my computer screen in numb …

I assure you, I don’t. I can prove it. I’m warning you ahead of time, read Orac’s Friday Dose of Woo in increments. Just nibble away at the edges of the burning stupid, then take plenty of antacid and digest for a bit before returning for more. On the continuum of burning stupidity, this one’s …

Which leads whackjobs to froth at the mouth over Big Pharma’s complicity in his death, and Orac to deliver a spanking: Actually, it’s nowhere near certain that this is what happened. In fact, it’s highly unlikely, and, as we …

It turns out chiropractors are no better than creationists when it comes to intellectual honesty: A long while back, at the original wordpress incarnation of this blog, I wrote a piece on the reasons that chiropractic is unscientific nonsense. Because it was popular, I moved it over here. Well, a chiropractor has come to bravely …

Going to the bookstore is becoming a painful experience. I have unreasonable expectations. When I browse the science section, I expect to find science. Barnes and Noble, however, insists on including pseudoscience. Gah. After seeing Denyse O’Leary’s atrocity shelved with the biology books, I almost fled. Here’s a condensed version of the experience: Crap. Crap. …
