Our newest section, Magic & the Supernatural, has articles about all types of amulets and other magical objects. We’ve been really open-minded about what we call magic and what we call ritual. One person’s religion may seem like superstition to another.

But this has gone too far. After announcing that he will divorce wife Madonna, Guy Ritchie has canceled an order for “kabbalah water,” for the couple’s swimming pool.The Kabbalah Center, a favorite hangout of Madonna, claims that the water “has the power to return water to its primordial state of completely positive, healing energy.”

Said the Daily Mirror, “One of the first things he’s insisted on is scrapping the ridiculous pool plans. He partly blames Kabbalah for the deterioration of their marriage, so the last thing he wants is an Olympic pool-sized reminder of the religion.”

The only thing I want an “Olympic pool-sized reminder” of is Michael Phelps abs:

Michael Phelps is beautiful.
