"There's an old saying; just because you're paranoid, that doesn't mean they're not out to get you. I have my own variation: just because you're insane that doesn't mean that things aren't slipping in unnoticed through dimensional gateways..." ~ Christopher Knowles (h/t to The Daily Grail for quote.)

Joe Nickell from TAM3: Pages from the Casebook of a Paranormal Investigator

“It’s craziness, pure craziness. I can’t believe a major journal is allowing this work in,” Ray Hyman, an emeritus professor of psychology at the University Oregon and longtime critic of ESP research, said. “I think it’s just an embarrassment for the entire field.”Hyman has a thing about psi; he was a "co-evaluator" of the Stargate Project, and rejected the research of partner professor Jessica Utts about that project. Both came away from the study of the project with very different conclusions: Utts, that psi exists, Hyman, who rejected such ideas.

a fun thing. Takes quotes from scientific materials.What a great idea; reminds me of those delightful quotes from newspapers and other printed matter the New Yorker used to sprinkle about in their magazine. Now you're lucky to find just one. Examples from Out of Context Science:
"Dogs that were less interested in the ambiguous bowls were judged to be more pessimistic."
New genes are no longer just vinegar, they are now equally likely to be butter and bread. We were shocked.
It seems that really active black holes are rare but not anti-social.
As Boing Boing remarked, it's nice that Out of Context Science gives citations for the quotes.
