Dowsing


#1

Looks like DiS owes LOLpop an apology


#2

Ah shit, posted this in the Real Life DiSsing thread two minutes ago!


#3

Bahaha…

I’ve been reading a book about magic. I’ve only two chapters in and so far I’ve read about Ley Lines and Dowsing. I do not believe in any of this, I am not sure why I’m reading this book.

You should read this:

OoooOooo… maybe I will! Thanks.

You know what, I feel like I may have started listening to this on audible!? Or something similar.

He’s written some really good books. It’s pop-science, but very engaging and entertaining. Quirkology is also worth a read


#7

I’m on the side of the dowsers here.


#8

That Dowsing thread is still one of my absolute favourites.


#9

I would apologize, but I’m using 2 metal rods to find an apology and struggling I’m to find it


#10

I love that thread. Still not sure if he was serious


#11

I hate that thread. Reading it reminds me how rubbish old!DiS was. I used to get the same “HA HA HA HA HA HA HA” and insults. The attacks and insults probably had the effect of digging my heels in thus making things even worse. Idk, not sure if I even read that thread at the time, but it doesn’t seem in the least bit funny to me… just aggressive for the most part? Sorry to ruin fun etc

My only previous contact with the word dowsing has been in Zelda


#13

I spoke with my Dad last night, who has been a Civil Engineer for nearly 30 years. I brought up dowsing as it was in the news, expecting him to find it amusing. Instead, he said he’d been doing it since he started to find pipes and underground water! He gave me a very detailed explanation of how to do it, admitted he didn’t know how it worked, but it did.

I quite like it on the odd occasions that science doesn’t have an explanation for something. It’s got a bit too arrogant for my liking.

#15

I was being tongue-in-cheek really. It’s mainly driven by the fact that I recently broke up with a scientist, so am trying to find any opportunity to undermine his profession.


#16

I miss royter.

also, what has happened to Oojimaflop? he was a good egg.


#17

He’s still on twitter, hanging out with the lads from the ASI.

EDIT: Also, what?


#18

Oojimaflop is a great guy. Had a couple of beers with him once in Southwark.


#19

Or maybe not…

“Dowsing for children and minerals” would make a great title for a Christmas stocking-filler book.
