Well, as reported via Twitter, I’ve been hit with acute (doesn’t look very cute to me!) viral nasopharyngitis — that’s the common cold, or man-flu, to you.
I’m currently not feeling too bad. It seems to be largely a head cold and I’m hoping that it will stay that way. If, however, it goes to my chest I may be away from my computer for a day or two. I will try to post when I can, though — if not here then on my Twitter page (the feed for which can be seen over there on the right or by clicking here.)
In the meantime, if you feel like posting something to perk me up in my comments section (no, I don’t mean perk up in that sense!), please feel free.

Many of you will already be familiar with Richard Dawkins’s series, Enemies of Reason. In this series, Dawkins examines the all-too-readily accepted charlatanism of psychics, astrology, homoeopathy and more.
During one section of Enemies of Reason concerning spiritual readings, Dawkins interviews the illusionist Derren Brown in order that he might be better prepared for the tricks (cold reading etc) that will inevitably be used during a visit he plans to make to a spiritualist church.
Below, you will find the complete, uncut interview (not shown in the original series.) The interview is taken from “The Enemies of Reason: The Uncut Interviews“.
