Zoology Used To Be Science


Morons at the Atlanta Zoo bring in psychics to predict whether the panda's been knocked up:

It was all done "in the spirit of good fun," according to a news release from Zoo officials.

Atlanta-born psychic Helene Frisch said she telepathically connected with Lun Lun using "tone vibration," the release said.

Frisch said she discerned that not only is Lun Lun pregnant, but she will likely bear a male cub by September 4.

Another psychic -- Andy Liu, a native of China -- used the ancient I Ching to calculate a 65 percent chance that Lun Lun is pregnant.

Zoo spokeswoman Jennifer Waller said officials have another reason to suspect that Lun Lun is expecting: The panda was artificially inseminated last March.

But panda pregnancies are notoriously difficult to diagnose.

Waller said officials should have definitive word on her condition this month.

Last July, Zoo Atlanta officials thought Lun Lun was pregnant but learned in August she was not.

Here's more on psychics. Here. Here. Here. Here. And, finally, here, with James Randi. (In the last one, click on the "Images," too, to see some pretty hilarious pictures.)

Brezny's work is folk psychology, not astrology. I generally enjoy reading his work. It's short and sweet.

If you like Brezny but want to kick it up a notch, you might consider this little book by A.C. Grayling, a columnist for the Guardian:

Reminds me of that neighbor of mine, who chases my cat with a pendulum, to make sure that his chakras are aligned properly. The dude is fine -- merci.
