OK...time to give this thread a poke.....
A topic that is most amusing, the imaginary (although believed whole-heartedly by some) "energy" called "orgone" has a thread devoted to it:
You can review the thread to get the gist....it weaves all around many directions, to include possible "alien" entities (hence, in the Aliens & UFOs
Forum) to the equally non-existent "chem"-trails topic! Quite versatile, this "orgone"!! LOL.
Skeptical member subject x
took the challenge posed, by another member, and actually built
an "orgone device" to conduct
experiments. Here, the results (and I laughed out loud, reading them!):
...When asked if they felt anything from it, here's a compilation of responses:
7 people said "no, nothing". That's pretty straightforward.
2 people said "maybe...I'm not sure. Should I?". Kinda ambiguous, but not a definite no.
1 person said "oh yes, I feel sort of a cool tingle". This didn't really surprise me, as this particular gal likes playing with crystals and such,
and is a big believer in these topics. Maybe she's just more sensitive than I am.
1 person said "I feel kinda creeped out that you're pointing that thing at me".
1 person said "If you point that thing at me, I'm gonna smack you". I pointed it at him anyway, and he did, indeed, smack me. Sometimes you have to
suffer for science, I guess.
I also did some "ambush" type tests, sneaking up behind people and pointing it at the back of their necks. Out of the 5 people I did this to, 1 of
them reached back and scratched the spot I was aiming at. Could be a response, could be a coincidence.
As a side note, 9 of my test subjects said "You need to spend less time on that forum. It's messing with your mind".
