Took a "bit" better pic of the DR today hehe.
Old owner had changed the front fender, mask and the grip shields from some Husqvarna bike I believe, and also built an automatic chain oiler from an old Husqvarna oil pump, pretty handy as you should oil the chain at least every 500km with a bike like this... Also the added LED lights on the front are pretty bright, though I might mod them for some extra power hehe

A week ago I was talking to my classmates about horror stories and one of them asked us(guys) if we wanted to play a board game she said that her friends wouldn't have the guts to play that game or maybe she asked us because she wanted guys to play the game too ,now I did some research about this "game" and turns out this is some scary stuff including spirits, drak energies and that sort of things
I found this on site called ghostwalk.com
Any one of you have any experience with this stuff?
I think it's all a load of bollocks, there are no such things as spirits.
The logic for me is that who we are is linked to the physical state of the brain. We are different people with different personalities when we feel sick or tired, there is no such thing as "me". You can destroy parts of the brain and completely change their personality. The case of Phineas Gage is a good example. In less extreme cases, people can suffer strokes which dramatically alter their character.
In view of these facts, I find it nonsensical to know that you can destroy parts of brain and change the essense of a person, and then also believe that you can destroy the brain completely when someone dies and yet something of their character will remain.
I doubt you'll find much sympathy for that kind of thing, this is essentially a science forum after all. If our contraptions were built based on 'gut-feelings' or some form of pseudo-science, I don't think there would be many of us left to talk about them
Noh, i just asked that because yesterday's research about the Ouija Board just changed the way i was thinking and even i felt like someone was staring me from the corner of my room. I thought someone might know something about this thing even if they don't think it's true maybe they were led to this stuff by friends etc.
"such thing" does that involve Jinns too?
Agree, my sisters teacher said my sister behaved different (mentally,behavioral, temperamental) when she attended school before some months when she was sick.

I assume JSR would include those under "a load of bollocks", the key term in that wikipedia page is supernatural.
I can say probably you too would include these under "a load of bollocks", but why?
Is it because science doesn't explain such things in terms of Wavicle or some theory?
Re: "Offtopic-posts-topic" NSFW
Because they have no foundation in science. By this, I don't necessarily mean that they don't fit in any current scientific field or theory, I mean that they are either not testable by the scientific method or their claims have not been upheld by the scientific method.
It's the same reason I include other pseudo-science, such as homoeopathy, as "a load of bollocks". People tend to be scientific in every aspect of their lives except for the one where it contradicts their personal beliefs. You wouldn't abandon science and uphold pseudo-scientific beliefs to cross the road when there's a car 50 meters away from you travelling 30 meters per second because you know that you're almost certainly going to get run over. But when spiritual or pseudo-scientific beliefs don't infringe too much on daily life or put your life in danger, people seem to forget about science and rational thought, throw it out the window, and indulge in some bullsh|t
I think a key issue here is people think that science is some separate entity that works for what it does and doesn't apply anywhere else (such as the supernatural). But science isn't simply a group of smaller scientific fields, it's not only an amalgamation of physics, biology, chemistry, geology, etc. Science is a way of knowing, it is a systematic process of determining what is probably true and what is probably false. Science is the only way that we are able to determine this. If you want to provide evidence for the supernatural, you either need to subject it to the scientific process or you need to develop a new way of knowing and independently prove that this new way of knowing actually works. So far, there is yet to be an alternative to science.
These are some definition of the word supernatural 1 : of or relating to an order of existence beyond the visible observable universe 2: attributed to some force beyond scientific understanding or the laws of nature.
According to these meanings what if this is something beyond the limits of science?
Like you said
what if there is no way of knowing it by means of science or laws of science?
so until then you're not going to believe even if you saw something weird in front of you eg: a person being lifted up in air and smacked against a wall or somthging like that?
Then you need a method independent of science to evaluate the evidence supporting the claim. You can't say "it's beyond the limits of science, therefore it's reasonable to say the claim is true". You need some method to evaluate whether the claim is true or not. Side-stepping science doesn't help the claim, you then need to come up with another method (which is yet to exist) to evaluate the claim. If the claim cannot be evaluated using any method, then we treat the claim as false until evidence suggests otherwise.
Well that's claim that can be evaluated by science. If I saw someone do what you described, I'd first run through a list of probable causes. If none of those probable causes are the culprit, and I am certain that what I saw really happened, then I would say that it is unexplained. There is no evidence to suggest that ghosts or spirits were any more likely to be the culprit than Vladimir Putin wearing an invisibility cloak or a Frankenstein banana brought to life by some mad scientists and given the power of consciousness, invisibility, and immense strength.
Note that nothing supernatural has ever been observed. The term supernatural is defined as outside the laws or understanding of science, but that does not mean it exists! It's a definition for a word, not evidence. For all we know, and from what current understanding suggests, there is nothing supernatural.
It's considered a "witch board". For conjuring.
Try telling that to the woman in this video. Her husbend Ed is the only man on Earth reconized by the Catholic Church as a 'demonologist'.
Here's another good one...
When life gives you lemons...throw them back they suck!
What a convenient example imagine you saw this happening, pretty much exactly what you describe:
You would have seen a woman lift a man against a wall without touching him.
You couldn't explain it, because you didn't know it was a prank - so would you immediately have come to the conclusion that it must be supernatural?
A critical mind would see this and say "Well, in my experience people do not have telekinetic powers. No one in the history of humanity has ever proven to have telekinetic powers. Therefore, what is more likely:
a) I am witnessing the first ever instance of a person gifted with telekinetic powers
b) there is some kind of trickery involved and this is just a stunt"
If you choose a) without first thinking b), you should really examine the way you evaluate your experiences.
I hate the guy's pedantic tone but the information given is worth listening to:
Citing the Catholic Church as an authority is questionable at best
The snopes article has some valid criticism of the couple you mention:
By that I meant a person lifted by a sprit or Jinn, not by someone with telekenetic powers
Okay, so the conclusion would be some thing like "there is nothing supernatural."
But me and my friends are planning to carry out this investigation with the Ouija (Wee'ja) board and what if the planchette moves by itself ,what do I say to them? That is was our subconcious mind that was moving the planchette or there was a spirit present over there?
It doesn't matter, I could have made that same prank without the actress.
I would not be so absolute. I would say that "So far, we have found no evidence of the supernatural."
Extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof, and that is something in all of human history that we have never seen.

Tell me what is more likely, that spirits make the board move or that the above link is true?
If you want to do a real test, do it with a proper blindfold!
On another note, almost fapped to death this morning - B&T have finally made a 21st century Welrod!
Here's the company factsheet: http://www.bt-ag.ch/pdf/Brochure_VP9.pdf
"Veterinary Pistol", nice one
Blindfold everyone who will touch the planchette during the session?
Then how do we interpret the answers that will be given by the moving planchette?
Yes, part of me agrees with the article but at the same time I also feel like there is a spirit that moves the planchette.
okay so can I ask the spirit to scratch " I am Real " on JSR's back?
