That's amusing.

I've just been 'followed' on twitter by 'FlowerEssence (SeanMartinezDantonet)'. whose bio details that they: 

"Love working with people, and have the pleasure of bringing negative mental and emotional states into balance w/Flower Essences b4 becoming physical problems."

I assume that she's picked me out from the twoi polloi as her automated searches in the public timeline showed that I was discussing "Energy Medicine" and the "e-Lybra energy balancing system" versions 8 and 9 with http://twitter.com/bluedevi .

I think perhaps, they should have checked the contents of that discussion a little more closely. I was actually helping with links to refute the claims for this obvious piece of quackery, including appropriate links to JREF and Quackwatch (http://forums.randi.org/showthread.php?t=50824 and http://www.quackwatch.org/01QuackeryRelatedTopics/electro.html, respectively) along with the giveaway key phrases:

"And she's still *buying* one of these?! Eek!",
"still scary that she's trusting this thing"
"Presumably, the version 9 solves all those pesky rational doubts..." 

""This IS Energy Medicine at its best" Yes - I'm afraid it probably is..."

I'm probably not the kind of person they want on theIr spam list.

Oh, and as per the last time this happened, here's the obligatory scary userpic for this user:

Need I add that I've already hit block for that user?

I feel that this says everything about Microsoft's new search engine that needs saying: ( http://www.little-gamers.com/2009/06/02/bingo/ )

Surprisingly fun for a one-sided conversation:

Neal's Yard Remedies were invited for a Q&A session by The Guardian online's Ethical Living blog - and then refused to participate when the questions weren't what they were expecting. Oopsie.

Best spoof from yesterday:


Is it bad that I actually want one of these?

...Gnashing his teeth and clenching his fists, shouting "Why, God, WHY?" and railing at a world which could allow this to happen...

(*Boy*, is this mental image fun to play with ;)

And this breaking news just in...


Our hot water tank leaks. Pah!

Not badly enough to flood the place, I hasten to add, but badly enough that we have to keep the water turned off when we're not actively using it.

However, this bummer is offset by the fact that:

I now have an electric drill!

Yay! (and <BZZZZZ!>)

-- Oh, and I hasten to add that the above two facts are not related, before anyone asks. ;)
