Hell Jesus, Buddha, and Joseph Smith all ate and drank.

WillyChase: GonzoNihilist: I found a 'before' pic;

Looks like some farker tried the old find the wet spot in the flour trick.


I literally couldn't breath from laughing for a minute after reading this.

Mock26: You can survive without food?  Fine.  Prove it.  Get some scientists to set up a test lab for you to live in and you will be denied food.  You will be locked in and the only one who will be able to unlock the door is yourself.

Somehow, though, I think that if asked to prove it in a laboratory setting that he would come up with some excuse as to why he could not do this.


That doesn't work for the sort of people who believe in this sort of thing.

I know a lot of New Age-type people and if some researchers decided to waste their time doing a lab test to show how ridiculous of a claim it is, people would be claiming the spiritual element of it had been taken away and thus it didn't work.

nytmare: J. Frank Parnell: Good thing the intellectual heavyweights are here to tell us this is probably BS.

TheHighlandHowler: Thanks for setting me straight.

Good thing that a couple of Captains Obvious are here to tell us that Captains Obvious are obviously stating the obvious.


I see you've somehow managed to exclude yourself from the corps.

Years ago James Hydrick was exposed as a fraud on TV.  He claimed to be able to turn the pages of a phone book with psychi powers.  The person who debunked him asked him to do the experiment but with pieces of styrofoam around the phone, just proving that the guy was not blowing on the phone book to turn the pages.  The so-called psychic claimed that the studio lights were heating up the styrofoam thus causing them to generate static electricity which caused the pages to stick together! Hydrick was exposed as a fraud on TV.  He claimed to be able to turn the pages of a phone book with psychi powers.  The person who debunked him asked him to do the experiment but with pieces of styrofoam around the phone, just proving that the guy was not blowing on the phone book to turn the pages.  The so-called psychic claimed that the studio lights were heating up the styrofoam thus causing them to generate static electricity which caused the pages to stick together!

Yeah, I remember watching a video of that. The creeper 'stache and hokey kung fu getup really added to the experience.

HailRobonia: If humans could photosynthesize like plants, even in an optimal situation in which we had full sun exposure, we'd only get a miniscule amount of our daily energy requirement.


Want to know how I know you're full of it?

Even at 2 hours of full sunlight exposure and assuming a typical conversion rate of about 4-5% (typical for plants) you'd break the 2,000 calorie limit in about 45 minutes.

Hi, I study plants for a living, specifically the interactions of light and life.

And I do it globally.

Sheesh, couldn't you have just done a simple "by the way, I know about this and you are wrong" instead of leaping to calling me full of shiat? It is possible for some of us to be, you know, misinformed instead of lying.

miniflea: There was also some monk who claimed, in addition to never eating, that he didn't have to drink water either.  He did, though, bathe himself in a fashion that appeared to allow him to take several swallows of water.


What about the guys who claim that by muttering the right spells they can turn cheap wine and crackers into the actual blood and body of a bloke who died two thousand years ago, then come up with all sorts of bizarre and contorted explanations of why the stuff can't actually be seen to change in any way?

Some of them also claim to be celibate.
