Too-Many Cool Links Tuesday

I guess this might make up for the too-few links yesterday? Thanks to Gold for the ‘In case of…’ picture.

Firstly, a little update on the rejected Halloween Challenge of Sally Morgan – as other blogs noted, it wasn’t likely to be accepted and wasn’t accepted in the end (as Sally Morgan’s lawyers indicated):

The US paranormal investigator James Randi backed the experiment, which qualified as a first step towards a million-dollar prize established by the James Randi Educational Foundation for any psychic who can prove their special “gift” to be real. The test was devised by Professor Chris French, head of the anomalistic psychology research unit at Goldsmiths, University of London, and was due to be hosted by the Merseyside Skeptics Society.

Singh said on Monday that he had received several more emails from Morgan’s lawyers. He added that the Halloween challenge will become an annual event for psychics and others who claim supernatural abilities.

Making it an annual event sounds like a fun idea though, so hopefully it’ll be taken up by a contender in the future.

Top Twenty Five Horror Movies from Time Magazine, followed by Top Spooky Stories from Jezebel, and then …well, the top funniest Tweets about some celebrity divorce that I’m still not entirely sure who they are or why they’re famous.
