Are you getting sold snake oil?

I came across this video on a blog written by someone named Esther who lives in Israel and who decided to follow me Twitter (interesting side thought that had someone read me that sentence a decade ago I wouldn't have had a clue what any of it meant).

It's long, it's good, it's worth watching and sharing. It's hosted by Michael Shermer the founding publisher of Skeptic magazine, the Executive Director of the Skeptics Society, a monthly columnist for Scientific American, the host of the Skeptics Distinguished Science Lecture Series at Caltech, and Adjunct Professor of Economics at Claremont Graduate University.

He's called it the "Baloney Detection Kit"


(Remember, email subscribers to view the videos you've got to go to the blog itself)
