I am currently in the midst of studying for my upcoming differential equations test, but I had to take a break to tell you that REBECCA WON THE PUBLIC RADIO TALENT QUEST CONTEST! Rebecca just phoned me to tell inform me that she had won. She is away from her computer and asked me to post the exciting news here.

I am so proud of Rebecca. This is truly a good day for skepticism and for women in skepticism. Check out the official results here.

Okay, back to calculating the maximum amount of brine in tank #1…. sigh…

  1. I told you so! I told you so! I told you so! I told you so! I told you so! I told you so! I told you so! I told you so! I told you so! I told you so! …

    (Okay. I won't spam your blog as much as I did the JREF forums…)

    Congratulations, 'Becca!

  2. Hooray Rebecca! If you ever need anyone to do some skeptical investigating in Kansas City (and trust me, there's a lot to be investigated around here), I'm your woman. (I actually do radio stuff! Really! Probably not the best idea to leave an offer like this in blog comments…ahem.)

  3. Wow! I'm so thrilled.

    Congrats. She didn't "win" it. She earned that spot!

    Rebecca is now officially ready for the big time. The question is, is the big time ready for Rebecca?

  4. I totally knew it. :-) Congratulations, Rebecca! I look forward to hearing the **fun** side of scientific skepticism coming from a mainstream media outlet.

  5. Rebecca,

    Let me add my sincere congratulations. Your dedication to science, reason & critical thinking–not to mention your humor and talent–have earned you this spot, and I'm excited that you and your skeptical values are going to get into a far wider public forum than in the past. I'd guess the 10 grand ain't bad either ;-)

    Enjoy your birthday party! I wish I could be there–especially now.
