Comment o’ the Week: Self-deprecation Edition

First of all, announcements!

Boston Skeptics in the Pub is this Monday, and we have webcomic artists Jeffrey Rowland of Overcompensating & Wigu and Jon Rosenberg of Goats! It is going to rock so hard you will require extra socks. Details at Boston Skeptics or RSVP on Facebook.

The Double Feature podcast is fun and about movies and hosted by skeptics, and they just posted a new episode in which I appear to chat a bit about Loose Change! It was plenty of fun – check it out here.

Okay, Comment o’ the Week! Congrats to Rav Winston, for making me laugh with his trademark self-deprecation:

Some people depend on condoms to prevent prgnancy. Some rely on IUD’s, or even the pill.


I just turn on the light.


Zing! Aw. Rav, as a prize you can send me your pick for next Wednesday’s Afternoon Inquisition, using the contact form above. Happy Friday!

  1. @Gabrielbrawley: You mentioned it in the “I’m so old” Afternoon Inquisition, and I was looking at that for replies before I commented on this post.
    Hope you’re feeling at least a little better, btw.

  2. Ah, rav. I almost feel bad enough to hug you, but not quite enough to initiate physical contact.

    Naw man, I’m sure you’re fine! People find self-confidence is sexy too, you know.
