Planet X - the mundane truth

If you've been following the Prattle for a while, you will know that tomorrow, or maybe a week tomorrow, or perhaps at some unspecified time in the future, we will be mostly wiped out by a planet we cannot see yet.


Phil Plait, author of Bad Astronomy, has put together a few pages on The Planet X Saga

Doomsayers seem to pop up every few years. Last time, it was the alignment of the planets that somehow managed not to destroy the Earth in May 2000. Now, we have Planet X. A few people are claiming that a heretofore unknown planet in our solar system is on a very long, elliptical orbit. In May 2003, it will pass close enough to the Earth to affect it in some way, causing it to flip over (what many call a pole shift) and spur many other huge disasters. The end result will be the deaths of many billions of people. There are a large number of web pages, chat rooms and books about Planet X and its horrible effects on the Earth. So the question is, does this planet exist, and will it come by in May 2003 and cause all this horror?
No, and no.

The site goes into a lot of detail and includes links to sources, including primary ones. A simpler summary providing an introduction the the various claims and brief explanations of why they're bollocks can be found on the page The Planet X Saga: The Scientific Arguments in a Nutshell.

Don Croft's Tower Buster

Are you worried about the dangers of mobile phone masts? Don't panic, just make yourself a Tower Buster. According to Metatech, it's Small and cheap, you can easily make these to join in the war to fight negative energy on earth..

The Tower Buster is a 3oz [84ml] paper cup, like the ones for bathroom dispensers, filled with a half/half mix of resin and metal particles into which I insert a single, funky quartz crystal.

Okay, that's a little vague. Fortunately, the instructions for the Chembuster go into more detail:

METAL PARTICLES: Get some metal particles from a machine shop, recycling yard or a place where they saw a lot of aluminum (sign shops and aluminum fabrication shops are good places to look). I use aluminum for weight considerations, but ANY metal will do. Very fine particles (such as filings from a key-making machine) aren't quite as good as ones that will easily go through a window screen & slightly bigger ones are okay. There really is a wide margin of suitability! .

RESIN: I use polyester resin (used to build fiberglass boats) but epoxy also works, as does envirotech resin from (this sets up very quickly, so you need to be proficient with it). (If you are going to construct many of these units, try to purchase your resin in 5 gallon buckets over the internet, possibly from a surfboard or boat manufacturing supply company. ACE hardware for $12.95 per gallon. Home depot gets $24 per gallon for resin.

On a level surface, pour an inch or so of catalyzed resin into the bottom of the bucket and stir in metal particles until the surface is uniform and flat.

The ratio that seems to work is approx. one part resin to one part metal particles.

An alternative to quartz is to use four hæmatite beads, which apparently work better. When you're done, bury it shallowly within about 300m of the offending mast. Not sure why you should do this at all? Well, according to the article, the mobile phone masts are not what they seem:

The main reason for these transmitters is to enforce compliance to the planned, potentially imminent worldwide tyranny, which is determined to decimate the world's population back to the numbers that existed before the industrial revolution so that they can more efficiently manage humanity, whom they have always considered their chattel (See The Georgian Guidestones at

Which is something to do with Theosophists, Freemasons, Satanists and all the usual suspects.

Sometimes the spam filter fails me

For some reason, I have just received a most interesting piece of spam. I have no Spanish, but choice phrases such as propaganda verdaderamente diabólica, vida anticristianos and las masacres contra los cristianos suggest that this is somewhat insane. It appears to be a rant about media bias against Christians, with particular reference to Cuba.

Update: Here's Google's translation of it. I was right - the evils of left-wing media bias covering up Comminist atrocities and promoting anti-Christian lifestyles. It's nuts, and probably one for Avedon.

Satanists run amok in Italy

Rome: According to Agenzia Giornalistica Italia (which I think means 'Italy Press Agency'):

At least 9 million people in Italy have suffered crimes linked to satanic sects, whose overall members in the country are 83,000 in 130 different groups. The alarm was launched by the magazine Happy Web, which, in the survey that will be attached to tomorrow's issue, shows figures provided by the interior ministry to describe this reality which is constantly soaring, especially through the internet. Hundreds of 'would-be wizards' use the web to recruit pupils and to carry out brutal crimes: there are websites, newsgroups, and forums dedicated to paedophilia, suicide, homicide, and even cannibalism.

Italy has a population of around 58 million, so that's about 15.5%! There is no sign of the article on the magazine's web site, which still promotes the April edition. SATANIC SECTS IN ITALY INVOLVE 83,000 PEOPLE; 9 MLN 'VICTIMS' - AGI, 8th May 2003.
