Ask Psychic Amy.2 I get pretty good advice from my bartender family and action figures close friends, but let’s face it—some of my most burning questions can only be answered by THE DEAD. Amiright? That is why this month’s Skepchick Challenge fundraiser features the psychic gifts of our very own Surly Amy.

That’s right. If you help us reach this month’s fundraising goal of $1,000 by March 11, Psychic Surly Amy will provide FREE psychic readings on camera for ALL to view in astonished amazed wonder!

BUT THAT’S NOT ALL!

You, dear readers, are invited to send in questions and special requests for Amy (in the comments section or by email). Now is your chance to reach out to dead relatives, dead celebrities, dead hard drives, or all of the above through the unheard-of powers that Amy possesses.

I see that raised eyebrow. You’re a skeptic. And I admire that about you. I really do. Maybe you’ve been hurt before by the dead. They never call. When they write, it just seems so stiff and automatic. Or maybe you’ve been burned more than once by the Magic 8 Ball. Perhaps you don’t even believe in pretend psychic powers. Extraordinarily silly claims require extraordinarily silly evidence, you say.

Well, put your money where your mouth is, Doubty McScofferson, and let’s put Amy’s powers to the test. And while we’re at it, the money we raise will go toward bringing the most bad-ass brilliant scientists and skeptics to this summer’s SkepchickCON.

At this very moment, we are determining our special guests and how many we can afford to fly out and host, which means you have the power to help create an awe-splosion of science and skepticism education, outreach, and entertainment. Even if you can’t make it out yourself (after trying every reasonably legal means to do so, right?), if we can surpass our goal, we can bring more of this amazing event to you with audio and video recordings of some of the panels, workshops, and live demonstrations. Everyone’s a winner!


Use the widget above or Paypal your donation to skepchick (at) skepchick.org. Even a buck or two will help. If you just can’t afford it, you can still submit your questions for Psychic Surly Amy and you can help spread the word about this Skepchick Challenge so that we raise at least $1,000 by March 11. Do it for closure with your dead goldfish. Do it for the entertainment value. Do it for science.

    Does your late great-great-great-grand-aunt know whether it is bigger than a breadbox?

    To the ghost who used to hang out in my closet as a child: Hi, remember me? So how’s death these days?

    No messenger too dead, eh?

    To a *certain* late forefather (you know who I mean): how much did you embezzle during your career? Answer in modern currency, please.

    To his late wife: how much of my inheritance do you think I should donate to SkepchickCON (seeing as he would have absolutely *hated* that particular address for “his” money, it seems very appropriate ;-)
