The Guardian Does Science

Much in the way the hillbillies did Ned Beatty in 'Deliverance'. Ace has the full gruesome details.

The problem with the whole Gerbil Watering thing is that it fails the basic test of a scientific theory: it can't be falsified. In other words, there are no results, no set of weather patterns or such like, that can disprove the theory. Too hot, too cold, too wet and too dry ? Why, that's exactly what was predicted. But now this latest line of argument makes astrology look like hard science.

We're supposed to wreck the economy, hand over huge amounts amounts of money and power to the state and generally undercut the principles of western civilisation, all at the behest of a bunch of wierdo cultists. Where's The Dawk when we need him ?
