Reading Time: < 1 minute You need to know a few things before reading this: 1) The BBC got into trouble last year for having a serial paedophile (celebrity DJ and charity man Jimmy Savile) about whom I wrote this post about cognitive dissonance. 2) I went to a Skeptics in the Pub talk last night given by Rob Brotherton, a PhD psychology postgrad student doing research on cognitive biases and the causal factors involved with believing in conspiracy theories. The talk on conspiracy theories and theorist (CT) from a psychological perspective was really interesting, to say the least. Showing how certain people think, and the expressing of the huge gamut of cognitive biases and heuristics involved in fallible beliefs is always worth listening to.

So I am in Scotland right now for the Edinburgh Fringe Fest. When I’m not cartooning, I do standup comedy. Anyway, being that I am mostly tired, swamped, and sloshed almost every day it seemed like a good time for a rerun. This was an early Blinky and Sal comic I did. This particular one can be found in Straight from the Pit of Hell: a Blinky and Sal Collection. This one also seems fitting coming on the heels the last cartoon featuring Blinky being plagued by yet another parasite.
