It doesn't have phrenology. I know phrenology to be true.

My midaxiel cranial diagonal cortex measured 3.1415926535897932384626433832795028841971693993751058209749445923 centimeters, establishing me as a genius.

Unfortunately, also left Mormonism out of the religion section.

The table does not mention Alcoholics Anonymous, a most dangerous fraud that has no scientific basis. Or would AA just be an isotope of Christianity, as many Federal Courts have determined.

I've been living irrationally and alcohol-free for 40 years, Praise Bill W!!

Neurology is uncertain whether all those brain cells I killed with ethanol have been "born again," but I manage to make better use of the ones that survived.

Ethanol has no part of my personal life. If only we could get it out of our gasoline! But But calling AA "an isotope of Christianity" is cute. I can get some mileage out of that.

Thanks for the laugh Dave. Definitely needed it after spending the last 3-4 hours doing homework.

I hate to admit it, but I peed myself laughing - the missing TK name? - Tinkling?

That did it. Now I have to vouch for how much it lifted my spirits ;)

Many on that map seriously studied such "irrational nonsense"...

To the ones who did and provided evidence they were irrational nonsense -- my thanks.

To the ones who did and irrationally believed them...my thanks for validating the "appeal to authority" fallacy :)

Very good :)

It's obviously been constructed by a Brit; references to an advertising campaign for Ready Brek (a form of porridge), Mystic Meg (a TV astrologer) and Jeremy Beadle (TV prankster - trust me, you do not want to know!)

Ditto (reg. my brother).

I read the 'blue book', and highly recommend it for just plain good sense and advice, as to how to live one's life.
However---check out the date of the blue book, as it was changed later to not be nearly as good as it was. Also, it was "sexist", as only written for men (not women). (Maybe this accounts for the rewrite.)

BTB: It is my understanding that "Bill W" is/was a Mormon.

So Bill W dabbled with LDS as well as LSD?

No mention of LDS anywhere in his history.
LSD, yes. LDS, no :)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bill_W.

He was into the craze of "spiritualism," and had a "spook room" in his house, used Ouija boards, and at one point said a long-dead monk named Boniface helped him write one of his books...

AA is fine if it keeps you sober.

My beef is with judges who force attendance.
