Hey, this works on political bullshit too
Sure this little video was designed to combat bogus claims of the paranormal (and they are all bogus - so far), but it strikes Our Man that the tests could equally be applied to politics. Would the Iraq debacle have happened if we had applied these criteria to the WMD claims and the preposterous notion that Iraq was 45 minutes from nuking Britain? Maybe it just would have made the higher-ups work harder on an excuse for war, but that wouldn't have been a bad thing. Just remember the 10 tests the next time we are told some pol is about to generate a million new jobs, the Norks are about to invade Hawaii or the LDP has what it takes to rule Japan for another five years.
