Dear Askme, where can I get crystals to channel my energy flow and make me a better person? Free or cheap, please. (MI)

These seem to go in descending order of looniness. For instance, I don't see anything wrong with the last two.

Those first couple are pretty hilarious, however... MIND MACHINES wooooOOoooOo

They are basically harmless, however. This is the kind of craziness I can successfully ignore, because it's almost impossible to hurt someone with it. I don't care if some dork likes to sniff crystals for mystical occult knowledge-acquisition. Maybe you could argue that it hurts the reputation of AskMe, but I'd prefer that the site's reputation as a place where you can ask anything be preserved, rather than some amorphous dignity.

What exactly is so loony about wanting to work less? That sounds like a damned fine idea to me. Admittedly pseudoscientific hokum seems to me to have been a bit more prominent in the last year or so, but even that isn't so terribly pronounced an effect. But I don't see where "I want to work less and spend fewer dollars as a result" even registers on the hokum scale.

Did you mean to link to something else?

Ah, there's always been loonies on mefi. I remember a few years ago there was some bugshit crazy man who tried to claim that there were places on earth where gravity acted radically different than is currently understood by science. He wouldn't let it go when other people explained how wrong he was too. Wish I could find that thread (it had to do with roadside attractions like The Mystery Spot if memory serves), it was hilarious.

They're just asking questions... questions that even I think are weird (or at least the first one), but they're not chatfilter or anything else that breaks the guidelines.

At least the 2nd one says "Hay guys, is this a loada crap?", so if you really want to get your superiority on, you can link to 50 sites that proclaim how unfathomably huge your dick is and how evil PhotoReading is. I tried to address the poster's curiosity about it, while dismissing PhotoReading.

At least you can work few hours (or have work in a fun environment) and get enough money to live on, and solar panels can actually power light fixtures (it's the latest research, brand-spanking new concept, cutting edge, difficult technical jargon like 'sun' and 'light', etc.). Now, getting cheap ones is a different matter, but AskMe has pulled surprises out of its collective anal sphincter a few times.

I think it's really, really important we find out exactly where the loony-bar is set on Steven C. Den Beste.

Not so we can protect his delicate, conservative sensibilities, but so we can torment and mock him mercilessly. Let's take him to the Rainbow Gathering and Burning Man and see which irritates him more. We can make him not shower for a month and subsist on nothing but magic brownies washed down with patchouli oil and lentil shakes.

Oh, yes, you're completely right, Steven. Obviously, carbon footprint calculators, wanting to work less, and solar panels fall into the same category as crystals and mind machines. The green needs a good solid dose of hard-nosed rationality, and I for one hope that the community can pull it together and restore some sanity there.

In fact, I intend to do my part in that as soon as possible, and post a question which will reflect the tough-minded, scientifically accurate worldview that Steven has been such a champion of. I'm having trouble deciding between "How do I convince people that global warming is a lie spread by a cabal of liberal scientists?" or "George W. Bush- Greatest leader in human history, or just American history?", but as soon as I do, I'm off to AskMe to strike a blow for rational thought and the Enlightenment.

I have 500 particularly diverse links primed and ready, about everything from the verified scientific principles of brainwave entrainment via photo-neural synthesis to Burroughsian poetry-prose cutups and dream machines, to tessellated recursive art, to the history of psychedelics in the computing industry - all of them aimed at your head for the singular purpose of blowing your fucking mind wide open, maaaaaan.

I know what you're thinking. "Did he post 500 links or only 499?" Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement I kind of lost track myself. But being as this is the internet, the most powerful mind-altering substance in the world, and would blow your head wide open, you've got to ask yourself a question: Do I feel lucky?

Dear Askme, where can I get crystals to channel my energy flow and make me a better person?

Have I got a crystal for you: Atacamite. It's an inexpensive crystal which is known for its healing powers and its ability to remove energy blocks. It's used by loons who practice acupuncture to release energy throughout the body. It also increases the energy flow to the genitals and the rectum, which means it's perfect for anyone who's got something lodged up their butt.

Doh, this is so easy.
If you hook the crystals up in the shape of the sacred syllable om and hang them by a south-facing window (your feng shui expert will give detailed siting advice), you'll not only generate enough qi energy to power all the appliances on your entire dorm floor, the profits from selling the excess to the national grid will allow you to retire early and work on your Photoreading skills.
At the same time as absorbing atmospheric carbon and outputting it as rainbows and the faint scent of sandalwood, the good "vibrations" that are a by-product of this process will eventually reach out to release the long-imprisoned inner children of the socially inept and self-delusional everywhere.
Whilst these are just a few of the miraculous benefits that come when you tap this mystical primal force, don't expect it to make libertarianism palatable to anyone with a shred of human decency. I cannot in all conscience give an answer that encourages you in your la-la land fantasies.

My dad used to tell me that there's no such thing as a stupid question. But assuming SCDB is right, what is supposed to be done about it? There's no systemic way to deal with the problem. Should we have an intelligence test as part of the sign-up process to weed out the mouth-breathing cretins from joining, and retroactively cancel uids that belong to the ones already here? That'd probably do away with three-quarters of the people who have already responded in this thread. Should we just delete the questions that some mod thinks aren't up to snuff? No. That'd just bring down even more whining nastiness here on metatalk.

The only thing you can do to is just skip the questions that you think are beneath your precious and lofty attention... (as I probably should have done with this thread.) Idiot questioners who get no answers will probably go away, won't they?

No one is a loon for wanting to work less, live more or understand something better.

I suspect SCDB's actual frustration was with the "loony" methods the posters were expending time and energy on rather than with the posters themselves personally or with their presumably good and desirable goals. He derailed his own post from the beginning by calling them loons instead of their methods loony.

Interestingly, this touches on the problem raised the same day where sometimes best responses are disallowed because they don't directly/literally answer the question, a design limitation of askme, IMHO.

According to the libertarian rule of "just answer the question", if someone asks whether marijuana or alcohol are better solutions to life's problems, our only options are to either promote one or the other or say nothing. Many who've tried either of the posters proposed solutions would like to say "neither, your solutions are loony". But that's not allowed because it takes the post off in a whole other direction that the poster didn't ask for.

I have not found that to be the case on AskMe, within reason. In your example, I am pretty certain respectful responses suggesting "neither" to be the answer would be allowed to stay. Likewise with the shrink post MeTaed a few before this one: What should I bring? We can't tell you because that is not the point. In facr, it is generally only not allowed when the poster explicitly says, I don't want X option, or the post is really controversial--guns, abortion, etc.

SCDB has annoyed me many times with his politics; I would even go so far as to say he's occasionally deliberately misrepresented things to further a point, but I still really like him.

He's consistently engaged, never ever writes in a droning, emotionless monotone, has admitted his mistakes many times, thinks for himself and will grapple with anything, and despite the fact that the Oregon Vortex exchange shows he has a lot to learn about gravitation (quite a general condition on Metafilter, by the way), has dozens of answers to his credit which display a lively, rational, and original intelligence.

The gleeful, spiteful and relentless mob cruelty of this thread would disgust and depress me even if I hated him , however. The pleasure people are getting from it is all too apparent, but let me tell you, it's not pretty. Cortex and Jessamyn, I don't blame you for what's happened here in any way, but I do wish there were some sort of mod jujitsu you could deploy to turn this kind of malignant animosity back on itself, and so extinguish it, before it gets rolling like this.

Garfield is watching you masturbate. Actually, he's asleep, dreaming about his resort villa on Lake Lasagna, but you're there, too, and you're masturbating, while Jon does Odie from behind.

I'm going to misuse the favoriting system to reward this comment.
