Re: Funny things that were said this week
Myself, if I had a haunted house, I'd be thinking fire.

If I had a haunted house I would make a fortune charging all those fake "believers" to come and do exorcisms.

Of course they know they are fakes , so none of them would actually show up.....fire probably is the best option......

The Search For Dark Energy Chameleons
the Skeptic's Guide to the Universe writes:

The latest experiments in the search for the source of Dark Energy peered 1,000 times more closely than ever for particles called Chameleons. Their theoretical ability to hide themselves may explain why they’ve never been detected.

https://www.theskepticsguide.org/...r-dark-energy-chameleons

The first paragraph of a short article just struck my funnybone. I would never have expected to read on a legitimate science web site something as silly as, "Their theoretical ability to hide themselves may explain why they’ve never been detected."

Re: Solar Farm Rejected Amid Fears It Will 'Suck Up The Sun's Energy'
Yes, same story, different perspectives. There are good and bad aspects to all human activity. A friend in NC sent me the link and said he runs into the level of ignorance portrayed in the story often. As a college professor he has to deal with the dismal primary school education of his students every day.
