A new skeptical member

Postby rachelschmink » 22 Apr 2010, 11:56

Hi. I'm a very analytical person who likes to understand how things work. I don't quite understand why there's both SCEPCOP and SCICOP, since they both claim to have the same goals: apply logic and rationalism to questionable claims.

I think that the JREF million dollar challenge is very interesting, and I'd love to take it on, but unfortunately, don't have any paranormal abilities. I'd love to find someone who does and work with them to win the challenge...

Hokey is..... hard to define. It's slang. It means 'corny' or 'artificial'. Now don't go asking me to define 'corny' either.

now i am confused...
did NP just called me a Mascot??

is it because i am a beaner?
is this a racial thing?? just because we do your lawns now we are mascots?!?!

if that is the case
can i ask you to autoban yourself NP?

is ok to call me a corny
but never a Mascot!!!

I'd show you a photo of the VT mascot here, but the school makes so much money off of their licensing they'd probably sue. I'll see if I can come up with a benign image.

I think if you were to be a mascot you'd need some dramatic changes such as this.
