Sundaylies with a Million Dollar Mad Art Cast, Hamster Alien, Cryptophile Hobbits and More!

Hello friends and well wishers and people who are just scrolling through the inter-tubes on this fine Sunday afternoon!

Today I bring you the Sundaylies, a round up of what’s been happening on this fabulous Skepchick network.

Where is Mindy you ask? She has traveled to remote locations to gather the most magical of all the mushrooms for the annual Skepchick stir fry. She was supposed to be back yesterday but all we received was a postcard via email that said just three words. “Goddam it’s beautiful.” We don’t know what exactly “it” is but we agree, and we look forward to her return.

Before I give you the GRANDE LIST of kick-ass posts, here is your Sunday Funnies with a comic by our friend, Jon Rosenberg, creator of the freakin’-awesome, Scenes From a Multiverse.

This here is one of his recent posts with the subtext, “America 2.0 meatsphere: now in low-earth orbit for a limited time

    Amy Roth,

    No thank you. I think even Trump is a better choice than that. I like America 1.0 better.
