Casual skeptics are annoying. They rarely know enough about whatever phenomenon they’re “debunking” to have a worthwhile opinion on it, basing their dismissal of other people’s experiences on a half-read Wikipedia article, an old episode of PENN & TELLER’S BULLSHIT, and a pathological need to feel smug.
