Robotics, Erotics, and Psychotics


Hey, it’s the new Skeptics’ Circle and it’s the GIANT ROBOT EDITION over on BronzeDog’s blog. Go check out the skeptical goodness. I don’t think Skepchick is in this time because I can’t keep up with these things, which really upsets me because I want MY own robot. Who out there wants to be the official person in charge of sending the best Skepchick posts over to whoever is hosting the Circle each fortnight?
Bronzy also encourages you all to check out his assorted Doggerel, so get to it!

I also just received a link exchange request from the webmaster of SexScienceSkeptic.com. I’ll let the author do the explainin’:

I have just launched a new discussion site, Sex Science Skeptic. It is devoted to looking at science research, researchers, and theories promoted in the mainstream media dealing with human sexuality that do not hold up to scientific scrutiny. It includes junk science ideas such as Dr. Judith Reisman’s erototoxins, the idea of oxytocin limits and monogamy, and the false science of abstinence only education. It also covers historical ideas such as Wilhelm Reich’s orgone energy and the anti-masturbation theories of Kellogg. We want to get experts to share their knowledge of how science is being distorted or is simply being badly done in these areas.

I’m at work and am a little afraid to actually go to SexScienceSkeptic.com, so I’ll encourage those of you with unmonitored web access to go scout it out and report back on its blogroll worthiness.

Finally, enjoy this article sent to me by Evan (from SGU): Skydiver plans head-first freefall from the edge of space in dizzying bid to break Mach 1 — But he must wear a special suit to ensure his body fluids don’t boil. I like to do a lot of zany stuff, but if I ever get involved in a hobby that requires advanced planning to ensure my bodily fluids don’t boil, please put me on medication.

  1. Hmm, I can see it already: a pink Mech piloted by an all female crew. Considering Evelyn's current deployment in the Pacific, maybe a partially aquatic submersible mech might be a good idea.

    As for the article to submit, does it have to be from the last month or so?

    I'm sure there's something from the past few weeks that meets all the criteria …
