Sicker than Others


Twelve Steps To Nowhere

Here is a short article by J. Timothy Hunt titled “Twelve Steps To Nowhere”, which originally appeared in Toronto’s Saturday Night magazine:


Blamethenile's New Video: Alcoholics Anonymous – The False Myth

Even though we’re supposed to be cranky with YouTube, I’m sending you over there to view the new video by Blamethenile. Also make sure you subscribe and view the rest of them while you’re at it.


Youtube have lost the plot – JREF account suspended

The James Randi Educational Foundation YouTube account was suspended.


It seems that no one knows why, so maybe it’s just a mistake, or some hyperactive self-policing from YouTube, that will be resolved presently. Whatever the case, James Randi is an important advocate for plain rational sense in a world where we seriously run candidates who perform exorcism and are protected against the stinkeye by witch doctors — and where our gold standard for addiction recovery is some kind of theological bumper sticker quackery.

So, there’s a campaign among the skeptic community to mirror this video, and if you want to complain to YouTube, go here, scroll to the very bottom, select “new issue” then select “suspended account” and give ’em holy hell.

Also, you can download the video from mediafire.

So interesting! I wonder what’s going on…
