Here are some of the more interesting things people have put in search engines to get to this site.
1) wicked atheists leaders of state

Some sort of Nazi puppet show maybe?

An inordinate fondness eating small children.

I have seen a lot of variations of this, and a lot of other bloggers seem to get these too. I have no explanation.
So we had PZ Myers as a guest lecturer on September 12th. MSCD’s news program reported the event, so I wanted to share. Skip to minute 4:20, since thats when they start to talk about us. I can’t embed the video, so go to http://metreport.mscd.edu/ to see the video.
I was strolling through a lounge one day…
When I saw this lying on a table:
I became suspicious at once. I’ve never quite understood how the word “natural” makes something automatically better than another thing.
Natural steaks, natural food, natural medicine.
Hell, my mum buys Arrowhead water instead of the generic brand because she thinks it has more “natural water”.
I once saw a bottle of sparkling mineral water that said that it was made with “natural CO2″. Apparently being natural carbon dioxide doesn’t change the chemical formula of carbon dioxide anyway if it’s still “natural CO2″ so what’s so great about it?
Maybe if I changed my blog’s sub-title to “All-Natural” I’d get more traffic.
Now, obviously there are some artificial things that are bad for you (though a lot of them are fine when taken in moderation). There are also some natural things that are bad for you.
Arsenic occurs naturally.
Uranium occurs naturally.
Mercury occurs naturally.
And that’s just a few things I pulled off the Periodic Table.
But it turns out that Kevin Trudeau is even more of a flat-out liar than my original suspicions let on when I found this YouTube video by Googling his name:
As wonderful a job as John Stossel (we need more journalists who have half as much skepticism as him) did exposing Trudeau, I still have to bang my head into a wall after reading this YouTube comment:
Trudeau is NOT a crook. I have tried several things in his book and they worked for me. Like Magnesium tablets for stress relief. They work better for me than ANY antidepressant or antianxiety that doctors have given me. FDA is out to KILL!
Thank you for your anecdotal scientific assertion that magnesium tablets work for stress relief (I personally have found that a hot bath and some chocolate works well enough, and yours can’t possibly be a placebo effect!) and that the FDA wants to kill us all.
Advice for the FDA: it would go a lot quicker if you let us use China’s tainted milk products.
