Homeopathic Toothpaste? – Myles Reviews

December 22, 2016 // 1 Comment

I am the proud owner of a rather unusual collection of weird and wonderful examples of pseudoscientific products. These range from the ridiculous like my kitty chakra healing set to the flat out dangerous like my copy of Christine Maggiore’s ‘What If Everything You Thought You Knew About AIDS Was Wrong’. Although I am sure most of you think that I am wasting my money on this bad science personified, the truth is I get an enormous sense of enjoyment from trying to understand the [...]

11 Chemistry Tattoo Fails

Schadenfreude is a German word meaning “pleasure derived from the misfortune of others” and a word whose counterpart is missing from the English language. Although I am sure we would never admit in public to taking pleasure form others’ misfortunes, the awful truth is we all secretly snigger when we see bad things happening to others. This is probably why sites like Fail Blog have become so popular in recent years, forever immortalising the failures of people so future generations can [...]

This might come as a surprise to some of you but I was not always the magnificent stallion that I am today. Back in my teenage years, I have to admit I was a little on the dorky side and at the peek of my award years, the photo below was taken. This was me at 17-years-old, hungover as hell, and on my way to work at Teesside Park’s Pizza Hut. As well as now looking very different, over the past 14 years, I have grown as a person through the experiences I have had, the people I have met, and [...]

A few months ago when I was visiting the walled city of Chiang Mai in Northern Thailand, I came across a treasure trove of quackery. I had stumbled across a bookshop that happened to have the finest selection of woo I had ever seen. One of the books from this store I talked about previously was Cosmic Cleaning which is an instruction guide for cleaning the “nine opens of the body”. A lot of these techniques for cleaning your various openings involved either dousing yourself in generous [...]

The earliest known account of a contrail (short for condensation trails) was in 1915 – only 12 years after the Wright Brothers first achieved powered flight.

The product of this combustion is mostly carbon dioxide and water vapour which can raise the relative humidity in the local area past the saturation point. Soot particles from the combustion process and other condensation [...]
