    Can't watch the video just at the moment, but don't need it anyway.;) The answer is very simple - many people are bored and want something exciting - and besides it's entertaining. That's exactly why we watch "action" movies and similar things. :)

    That was very good, in fact I might have to subscribe to 'Skeptic' again.

    Why subscribe? We should ask them to pop over and "Debunk" should they have the time.

    I found it to be pretty good; my father enjoys the skeptic and at times it says some -very- interesting things concerning what society at large believes. In the video above, I also noted that he said that all UFO sightings were -probably- all fakes. Even he wouldn't go so far as to categorically say he -knows- they were all fakes. While I think that he may still overconfident in that estimate, I think that it's always a good sign when people admit that they don't know everything concerning an issue.

    Did you actually watch the video in its entirety? I'm talking about a song from Led Zeppelin that they played backwards at about 10:50 in the video.

    Well, it's not quite that simple. Shermer breaks it down pretty nicely in his book of the same title.

    I agree, but I was oversimplifying on purpose just to drive home a point.

    Here's the not quite so hilarious documentary about the kids that tried suicide, and the redneck assholes that tried to blame Judas Priest for their own failings as parents;

    It's long, but worth watching, the parents are truly despicable people.
