Hayley is a Ghost

“Hayley Stevens” is a bitch

…and so are you*

This week I have mainly learnt that people will try to make you feel like a bad person by typing offensive sentences into google search along with your name, and then clicking on your blog knowing the offensive term will show in the blog stats. When I haven’t been learning that I’ve been generally walking around dressed as Velma Dinkley from Scooby Doo. It started with International Geek Pride day on which Bath Skeptics hosted a Geek Pride Quiz and Fancy Dress Contest to raise money for ‘Save the Rhino’. Froody.

Photo evidence:

Me as Velma.

Anyway, here are some links that I would like to recommend to my blog readers for this week:

The Alice Illusion in which people are made to believe they are giants or dolls. Showing how weird our heads can be.

“On hoaxing the hoaxers” – an awesome episode of the Token Skeptic with the wonderful Kylie Sturgess.

Bin Laden & the IT crowd – the anatomy of a twitter hoax

‘Children don’t need Brain gym to spot nonsense’ – Ben Goldacre on how age and maturity do not always equal intelligence.

‘Women’s intuition and other fairy tales’ – a fascinating talk by Rebecca Watson that is well worth putting an hour aside for.

BBC Thinking allowed – Paranormal media – about half way through the discussion turns to paranormal media and is fascinating.

Sanity & Violence – a thought provoking blog post from Jourdemayne

Horse laughs, the rapture & ticking bombs –  Daniel Loxton examines ridicule and belief

Enjoy!

*UPDATE* I should clarify that I find the google search thing hilariously funny & I’m not being a drama queen over it. If anything, I named this blog post as I did to mock people – it’s what I do….
If people reading my blog honestly believe that people could insult me by searching for my name + horrible phrases, they don’t know me very well. It takes a lot more to insult me. Ask Trystan Swale… he tries ALL THE TIME and still fails.
