weird & wacky… science?

Now that things are (sort of) winding down for the year, I thought I'd share some gems of pseudoscience with you. This is an ongoing interest of mine & I'm hoping that you'll apply your critical filters to what follows (& I'd be interested in your comments, too!)

Have you considered candling your ears, for example? And – what would be a simple scientific test of the claims of this technique?

Need extra energy? Try water… (I found this particular item through David Colquhoun's excellent site, Improbable Science).

Or you might consider that this pendant would do the trick!

I could go on, but I won't; there's just so much of this stuff out there. Not to mention a number of science bloggers who seem to have more time than I do to deconstruct it (often hilariously). Have fun!
