Anyway! I had just thrown a bag of trash in the dumpster and was walking back to the building when two sheriff’s vehicles pulled into the parking lot. One of the officers hopped out of his vehicle and went over to the dumpster area which I had just left to search it. My guess is they were looking for some scofflaw.
I watched curiously and then went to ask the other officer what was up. As I approached, he told me to get back in the building. I got the message, turned and hurried back into the building. I never found out what they were doing exactly.
I related a couple of stories about the probably nonexistent creature. One was about yet another not very good video of a blobsquatch. Actually, it’s an excellent video of a blobsquatch, it just isn’t very good evidence for bigfoot.
The latest UFO video that’s been making the rounds is very likely video of bugs flying closely by a video camera. But don’t tell news reporter Heidi Hemmat that, she doesn’t want to hear it. She emphatically tells us that it’s not a bug, but all signs point to it being a bug.
Here is Heidi Hemmat’s report and here is Ben Radford’s analysis of the bug video. I mean UFO video. No, I mean bug video. It’s a bug, Heidi!
With all the other daytime talk shows following the easy path of mystery-mongering when it comes to psychics, it was so refreshing to see Jeff Probst take a skeptical approach to the topic. With the assistance of skeptic Mark Edward, Jeff demonstrated the deception of the psychic reading industry. Will it wise people up to the nonsense of psychics? Maybe not everyone, but it might plant that sorely needed seed of doubt.
Good work, Jeff. I hope your show lasts and that you do more shows of a skeptical nature.
