It's snowing, so I started a blog.
It’s our first big snowfall here in New England. I was supposed to go snowboarding today, but the trip was canceled due to too much snow. Too. Much. Snow. The other two times I’ve tried to go in the past month, it was 50 degrees F and rainy. I am appalled that scientists remain uninterested in the opportunities that could be gained by simply learning how to control the weather. Apparently you have to be evil to want to do that.
But I digress – welcome to the official Skepchick blog. I plan to update regularly with whatever is happening. Daily would be nice, but I can’t make promises because it would be pretty insane if we got a blizzard that forced me inside every day. I may also try to write during non-blizzard days.
The next issue of Skepchick will premier Wednesday, February 15. It’s packed pretty solid with thought-provoking essays on religion and philosophy and how they relate to skepticism. I’ll be adding nothing to the level of discourse by providing an insider’s overview of this year’s The Amaz!ng Meeting 4, held in Las Vegas and sponsored by the James Randi Educational Foundation. I’m also considering putting a racy image on the front page. Why? Because it looks good. Why else? Because I’m curious to see how people will respond. We started this organization by publishing a calendar of mostly nude women, so in a future issue, I think we should all sit down and talk about sex, exploitation of women, and skepticism. Doesn’t that sound fun?
Writing a blog is easy:
1) download and install the software (check)
2) write a blog entry (check)
3) get thousands of people to read it (inline nude images help)
4) wait for many people to write in the comments about what a jerk you are (pending)
Rebecca is a jerk!
(BA made me do it.)
I’m replying to this ancient post to see if blockquotes work, and hopefully no one will notice.
The Bad Astronomer is a jerk!
(Wait, perhaps I misunderstood?)
I like all the sexy graphics. The cover of the Feb. issue of Skepchick is excellent as is the high heeled logo (though I’m skeptical anyone can wear those heels and be comfortable. ;) ) The message is clear, brains are beautiful. Of course, so are pretty men but for the one I want to hang around with, I’d rather have the one with brains.
HooHa! Great issue. Nice cover. Keep that blog a coming, eh?

Yes. Yes it does.
And if you would enable a preview feature on the comments, that would be fun too.
