Did somebody call me?

Pfft, I'm working on creating my own universe. I just need a pair of quilboars and some flying monkeys and we are set to go.  Nimoy is waiting for me there.  You can join too for 500 bucks, but you have to bring your own weapons as I've only done this once before.

They made a movie based on that. And it's actually pretty good.

If you want a real laugh, read the link at the very end of TFA.

That guy is blatantly and willfully taking advantage of people's ignorance and trust in order to simply make money for himself - and totally vulnerable creatures who trust and depend on those people will suffer as a result. The money they pay him would be best spent at an actual reputable vet, which would get their dependent creatures the help they need if something is wrong. Some of these people no doubt won't be able to afford that actual REAL treatment for those helpless creatures as a result of pinning their hopes on this guy's intentionally fraudulent service.

That doesn't make me laugh at all, that gives me a sad.

This is the greatest headline I've seen in a long, long time!
I'm sure previous commenters got it, too, their brains have just been Swiss cheesed from too many leaps. ;)

My post was a picture of Samuel Beckett, who has the same name as Scott Backula's character. I guess you can be too obscure for FARK.

Hell, L Ron Hubbard would call this a scam.

No thanks, I'll stick to peyote for my quantum jumping.

Probability of scam increases 1000 fold when someone asks for money so you can test their claim.

Dr Samuel Beckitt never returned home

For a price I'd do about anything
Except pull the trigger
For that I'd need a pretty good cause
Then I heard of Dr. X
The man with the cure
Just watch the television
Yeah, you'll see there's something going on

general question
what percentage of a population can be out right fools
and the society still be considered healthy

(im guessing we are past the 23% mark)

I'll wait for the comments from the Spiders from Mars. I have no choice.

Okay, w/ all the different things on board that ship that can and would go wrong, of all the random creature comforts, 19th century leather bound books, etc, there's no farking way the Enterprise-D didn't have a small pair of scissors or some other trimming/shaving stuff lying around. Did the ship's barber die, and Riker was too incompetent to trim his own beard? You're the second in command! You can't handle your own grooming?

I'm waiting for my alternate universe alter ego to tell me it works before I send in any money.

I got a couple many years ago and then I decided I don't really care. I just read Fark...sometimes I pay for Fark... I don't get paid to do their footwork.

If someone else enjoys doing it... hey... knock yourself out!

My wife Natalie Portman agrees this is a scam.

Why do all salesmen have to be white and have the exact same haircut? And people wonder why I *refuse* to cut my hair and wear a tie.

It was a brief scene, and it was the Enterprise in an alternate universe. Riker was in command. Most were dead, and they had been in constant combat, apparently long enough to make a ill-rested, unkempt Riker.

So you're saying there's a chance.
 
2013-09-01 09:56:08 PM
Hmm... If you're going to rehash new agey tripe might as well go all the way and ask for a small pile of money. After all, studies show that an expensive placebo works better than a free one.

Wow...a while article dedicated to mocking some guy nobody would have heard of anyway. The author is dumber than her target.
