Alex Santoso's Comments

@toontune - actually, the article was published in the Washington Post, a liberal bastion if there's such a thing.

The studies cited were done at the University of Toronto and UC Berkeley.

It's worthwhile to point out that the concept of cognitive dissonance (the tendency to harden one's belief when it's challenged, or even proven wrong by evidence) is pretty universal: both liberals and conservatives have it.

Hm - I'm sorry that you've had a bad experience with Unemployed Philosopher's Guild. They're actually a pretty good company.

I think the Cheshire Cat was one of the first mugs made by UPG. We haven't heard any problem with the Van Gogh or newer mugs made with thermochromatic ink.

If you had bought it from us (we actually don't have the Cheshire Cat mug), we'd be more than happy to issue a refund/exchange.

Please contact them for a refund or exchange:

Actually SenorMysterioso, it goes something like this:

A baby seal walks into a bar, and the bartender asks "what will you have?"
It replies, "Anything except Canadian Club"

@Suzy: Anti-rational thought? The irony of it is that most people who are skeptics are very dogmatic in their thinking.

If you think this is mumbo-jumbo, crack open a quantum physics textbook and report back.

@nutbastard - actually, that's completely wrong (this was the whole part of physics that caused Einstein to throw up his hands and say "God doesn't play dice with the universe"). Later on, Stephen Hawking said, "God not only plays dice. He sometimes throws them where they can't be seen."

By the way, electrons don't have orbits - they have wave functions (which is a fancy way of saying that you can only predict the probability of finding an electron at a given point in space away from the atom's nucleus).

Quantum physics is unreal. I don't know anyone who can say that they truly understand it (including myself).
