smile A nicely coined phrase from another thread. I have it, I do believe grin

Twosugarsplease Wed 10-Apr-13 22:36:27

Toodles.. grin

I agree with you there solid well said.

Cote, where's the yoni thread? Sounds like fun and any excuse not to do any work tonight.

Actually, it's fairly important to speak out against woo, because it can be dangerous. Individual woo-heads are just a bit silly, on the whole, but it's about as big a deal as a friend/relative having shit taste in music/books/art; you smile politely and agree to differ. But things like NHS funding being wasted on con artists such as homeopaths, that's not so good. People being encouraged to refuse medical treatment for their sick DC on the grounds that some woo-peddler can cure them instead. Mediums, clairvoyants and other fucking vultures who take advantage of the bereaved and charge them vast sums of money at a point in their lives when they are unhappy and confused.

married I know where you coming from, what are your experiences ?

CoteDAzur Wed 10-Apr-13 22:18:57

That's because you only hang out around these parts, with other woo people.

Come over to the yoni thread grin

Twosugarsplease Wed 10-Apr-13 22:09:55

I don't understand why your even here !
Just to patronise, and ridicule in my experience of your posts.
Never seen you on another thread apart from these ones.
You love it really.... grin

I think I have woo in my heart and sceptic in my head. I have had a few, unexpected moments that make me believe there is woo in the world. On the surface though I am very pragmatic and very unwoo.

CoteDAzur Wed 10-Apr-13 21:58:16

I'm having too much fun over at the yoni thread to deal with you like you deserve TwoSugars grin but MY GOD you don't understand what you read, woman.

Twosugarsplease Wed 10-Apr-13 21:49:13

Apology accepted smile

CoteDAzur Wed 10-Apr-13 21:15:02

A simple acknowledgement like "Oh sorry, I've misunderstood".

Or even "I'm sorry I banged on about this and then called you rude on multiple occasions, but now I understand that it was only that you don't suffer fools gladly" wink

CoteDAzur Wed 10-Apr-13 21:11:50

It would be good to have a sign that you finally understand before you go hoop-dee-da changing the subject.

After you made me spend all that time explaining and copy/pasting old posts, that is hmm

Twosugarsplease Wed 10-Apr-13 21:05:33

Getting back to the title of the thread, anyone else feel they are woo ?
Or have a woo experience to tell smile

CoteDAzur Wed 10-Apr-13 21:05:22

FFS, you really want me to hold your hand while you read a simple sentence in English hmm

I asked "What does it mean for everyone to have an ability that nobody is aware of?". As is clear to anyone who knows the difference between the words "everyone" and "you", I am asking what bumbley means by all humans having an ability but nobody being aware that they have it.

The ability in question is humans sensing the earth's magnetic field. Not you thinking you talk to dead people in your dreams. And "everyone" in my post refers to human beings in general, as does "us" in bumbley's post

Here is the exchange in question:

bumbleymummy Wed 10-Apr-13 17:55:35
Wasn't there also something about us actually having an ability to sense the earth's magnetic field in the same way as birds/insects but we aren't aware of it?

CoteDAzur Wed 10-Apr-13 18:18:37
What does it mean for everyone to have an ability that nobody is aware of? confused

Twosugarsplease Wed 10-Apr-13 20:49:15

Why don't you explain cote ?
Blimey ! You really are rude !

Wishiwasanheiress Wed 10-Apr-13 20:36:09

Team woo

Enough for open mind not lunacy

CoteDAzur Wed 10-Apr-13 20:34:55

Please someone explain to TwoSugars what that question means. We have complete communication failure. Or maybe it is the "woo gene" preventing her from comprehending what I would think is simple English.

Twosugarsplease Wed 10-Apr-13 20:32:51

...and my reply was, that in my experience it means a lot, glad I had the ability to have seen what I saw, see in my dreams etc confused

Others have much much more of an ability, and could reply in more depth.

Please don't be so rude and patronising.

CoteDAzur Wed 10-Apr-13 20:25:44

Do you have a problem with English comprehension? hmm

That is not my question.

My question was:

What does it mean for everyone to have an ability that nobody is aware of?

Twosugarsplease Wed 10-Apr-13 20:23:30

what does it mean to have an ability that no-body is aware of ?
I replied, or are you just asking for kicks ?

I don't see how my reply confused you, or did you just want a reaction ?

CoteDAzur Wed 10-Apr-13 20:13:56

TwoSugars - Yes, I did understand what you were replying to. And no, you really haven't understood what I was asking.

Try reading it again.

Whoever it was who heard noisy footsteps: do you live in the Midlands, and did this happen about 10 years ago?
I ask because I was once in a friend's house in Nottingham, quite late in the evening, and there was a sound like loud footsteps upstairs. A moment later, friend emerged from the downstairs bog and asked me and his flatmate, who was also standing in the sitting room, which one of us had been jumping about in his bedroom.

We had all been downstairs. So I got the breadknife and marched upstairs to see off any little scratters who'd got in by the window with an eye to burgling, but there was no one there.

Now if we had been silly woo-heads we might have clutched each other and squealed and called an exorcist or something. As it was, we shrugged a bit, and the flatmate said it sounded more like an earthquake, and I remembered reading that there is an earthquake faultline in the Midlands.

In fact, it was an earthquake, a very minor one, with the epicentre being in Dudley. So an unlikely and unusual explanation for a funny noise, but a true one.

Twosugarsplease Wed 10-Apr-13 20:11:26

cote you asked everyone what it means to have an ability that no one is aware of ?
Apologies, I was not very clear as to what I was replying to.

CoteDAzur Wed 10-Apr-13 19:56:10

bumbley - That article seems to be saying that humans have a protein that some birds use for detecting magnetic fields.

That doesn't mean that we "should" have this ability and the article isn't saying any such thing.
