Another hilarious evening on Coast to Coast AM, featuring RCH and JBW (see prior bloggery). It was a tale of woe, really.
Hoagland's proposal to use his Accutron toy on the Temple of Kukulkan at Chichen Itza, just a day before the apocalypse-that-never-was, was a bust. Fifty people had paid to accompany the pseudoscientist on this jaunt, but apparently nobody had thought to check whether a permit would be required. As a result, the chagrined pseudoscientist was briskly escorted away from the pyramid and kicked out. I guess he didn't realize that in Mexico, "permits" bear a remarkable resemblance to 500-peso banknotes.
The fifty paying customers aren't going to see their money refunded, any more than the FooBoo "friends" who contributed to the Egypt-expedition-that-never-was will.
There was more. In typical failure-to-deliver mode, the pseudoscientist missed a deadline with the February Conscious Life Expo and got cancelled. On the radio last night, he called this a "cockamamie" way of banning him, mocked the show's organizer Robert Quicksilver, and begged the fans to e-mail asking for re-instatement.
Personally, I e-mailed Quicksilver supporting his decision. Hoagland's last appearance at that joke of a New Age conference/fuckfest was enough already. The address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
