The hidden danger of charity fatigue

4 December, 2010 // 3 Comments

*update* You can donate just £2 to the NSPCC here as part of the facebook profile picture campaign! I changed my profile picture on Facebook to a picture of the original Fireman Sam because I used to watch Fireman Sam all the time when I was younger. I even had a plastic firemans helmet and my cousin and I would run around the garden with my [...]

social stereotypes and blah blah blah!

21 November, 2010 // 10 Comments

When I began to co-host the Righteous Indignation podcast with Trystan it was the first time I had really started to get involved in a wider group of people who all identified themselves as skeptics. Prior to that I had posted on a few internet forums for skeptics and I used skepticism in my paranormal research and knew others that did. That was [...]

Paranormal Investigation: Live

18 October, 2010 // 80 Comments

I’m feeling rather frustrated and annoyed and it’s all because of an advert I just saw on LivingTV. It was for a program called ‘Paranormal Investigation: Live’ in which, the trailer says, two paranormal research teams – “one using spiritual methods & one science” will investigate one of [...]

3 October, 2010 // 7 Comments

Earlier this week the ghostbox that I bought online arrived in the post. Many of my friends and fellow researchers thought I had gone mad by buying this thing but the fact of the matter is that these things have always interested me.

For those not in the know, Wiltshire Phenomena Research is the investigation team I helped to form back in 2005. As I’m sure many of my readers are aware, there is a trend [...]

Hunt is a four letter word

I dispise any form of animal cruelty, it’s why I went vegetarian after I saw what the meat on my plate went through while it was still alive. I, like many other people read the news stories about the babies that were attacked by a fox in their home, and more recently the story about the 13-year-old girl who was bitten on her leg by a fox [...]

When ghost hunters cross the line

22 July, 2010 // 5 Comments

I just read this news story from the US about some teenagers who were caught trespassing in a Hubbard Park in Connecticut which is near the former Undercliff Sanatorium for children. They were found by police, and the group of “amateur ghost hunters” set off on foot to try and escape the police. Instead, they fell off of a cliff and [...]
