Facebook friend Ian Kerry points me to this tabloid news item about photos of (gasp!) actual fairies.
To me, they look like bugs.
Somewhere, Arthur Conan Doyle is smiling. Maybe.
Also, Matt Rouge points me to this Cracked essay by someone who had (or may have had) an NDE and didn't think very much of it.
Actually his so-called NDE sounds more like a fairly conventional hallucination. He seems to have been in physical pain even during the experience, which is not at all typical of NDEs. He had no OBE, no life review, no encounters with deceased persons or a Being of Light, etc.
If typical NDEs were this unimpressive, the phenomenon would be of limited interest. Still, his brush with death does seem to have helped him to put the problems of everyday life into perspective, and he says he has no fear of death anymore.
