Skepticism

Skepchickcon news (good and bad)

There is stirring in the droid household this morning, as us 3 Skepchicks and our willing man servant Tim3P0 wake up and eat breakfast before loading up all our party paraphernalia and heading into town for the convention.
The good news is that this weekend promises to offer a metric ass-ton of fun and skepticism.

Unfortunately, we got some bad news this morning: PZ Myers will not be joining us. After the vigorous discussion on Skepchick about the impact of air travel on the environment, he has decided to swim back from Germany (where he was attending a conference).

Just kidding. Actually, his flights have been screwed up and he can’t fly out until Sunday evening, and will therefore miss the entire event. Which makes us very sad, but, well, shit happens. Nothing to be done about it but party even harder this weekend to make up for it (unless one of our brilliant readers has figured out the teleport–what’s taking you guys so long, anyway?).

So I hope you’ll still come out to hang with 5 Skepchicks, Pamela Gay, and Greg Laden.

    Oh, damn. And here I was going to loan him my floaties…

    Have fun Skep-kids! :)

    Oh, you tease!

    Do you have the technology to allow a video hookup? It doesn’t take too much. We do it at my day job all the time in this sort of situation. The good news is that afterwards no one has to buy PZ a drink.

  3. All you have to do is get the JREF to fork over some cash, charter a Concord, and badda bing, he’s there. Do I have to think of everything for you people? Sheesh.
    And yes, I know the Concords are not flying anymore. Easy answer…yank one out of mothballs, pump in some gas, and off you go. I’m thinking you guys are starting to lose your skeptical, critical thinking skills.
