Skepchick Quickies 10.1

Since Jen made fun of me last year for not saying it was my birthday in the quickies, I will say it again: It’s my birthday! Whee! Please send photos of cute men with cute animals.

  1. “For it was only a penguin—albeit of a huge, unknown species larger than the greatest of the known king penguins, and monstrous in its combined albinism and virtual eyelessness.” — H.P. Lovecraft, ‘At the Mountains of Madness’

  2. The collection of events at paranormal “hot spots” in that article is seriously lame, with one of the lamest leading the list:

    Edmund Sheffield – the first Baron Sheffield – died in the Adam & Eve pub after being struck by a butcher during a revolt against land enclosures in 1549. As he lay dying he cursed those who harm the innocent.

    The Maid’s Head Hotel in nearby Tombland was said in March to be visited by a spectre of an old woman who smells of lavender.

    I don’t think the two paragraphs are meant to be connected by anything but geography, but the first one doesn’t really make sense on its own as a paranormal event…

    And happy birthday!
