Magical Thinking at it's Worst

Postby really? » 23 Aug 2013, 22:38

This is a year old story that I just became aware of.

Police in Bangkok yesterday arrested a man who had in his possession six roasted fetuses aged two to seven months. It was unclear how they were initially obtained.

"We have to send the bodies for forensic test to identify whether they were foetuses, removed illegally by abortion, or corpses of babies," said Lt. Col. Kittima Thongchai, who busted Chow Hok Kuen in the city's Chinatown district.

The 28-year-old British citizen of Taiwanese origin was reportedly attempting to smuggle the fetuses into Taiwan. He told investigators he purchased them on the Internet for $6,500, and was going to sell them for much more to people who planned to use them as good luck charms.

A black magic ritual known as Kuman thong — an effigy soaked in an extract made from stillborn babies meant to bring its owner prosperity — is apparently still practiced by some in the region.

Chow Hok Kuen, who says he was working for another man, now faces up to a year in prison, as well as a fine of 2,000 baht (~$65).http://gawker.com/5911430/why-was-a-bri ... nto-taiwan

Maybe.

Just a change of subject. I don't know which American tv channels you can receive, but there's one called H2 [History 2] which is running a series of shows called "Your Bleeped up Brain" It's fun to watch and learn how untrust worthy our minds, memories and ability to take in information can be. I'm sure you'll find much use for what you learn when dealing with folks on that other forum. It really is worth watching. Oh, and it features Richard Wiseman, I'm sure that will go over well there.

I LOVE that show. It makes me feel like a frickin' genius. I obviously don't see things as others do because I pick up on almost all of the flaws/changes/imperfections/etc. I also think that the show was created by the gov't (or whoever) to 'explain away' most CTs and NOT as entertainment. ;)
