Elles the Vampire Slayer

Elles first discovered the wonder of skepticism when she first picked up a copy of The Skeptical Inquirer in a library and since then has aspired to be a strong defender of reason. She first became interested in the evolution/creation debate when she encountered and, amazingly, retained her faith in humanity after realizing how many people took Ken Ham seriously until she entered high school. Since then, she has started a blog, Splendid Elles, to express herself whenever she feels like throwing things and screaming in frustration at scientific ignorance and general lack of thought. Elles is currently fifteen, but in the future she thinks she’ll probably go into some field in science but doesn’t know which one because she likes them all too much. When she’s not exposing woo-woo, she reads books, watches an excessive amount of science fiction, and has no fashion sense beyond differentiating between clothing which covers up one’s upper body and clothing which covers up one’s lower body.

    Wow… now that’s impressive. Now if only I could figure out which bit is the supernova… is it the square bits under the circle bits, or the roundish bit around the square bits?

  2. Hm. This test has made me realize something that should’ve been obvious — I need to figure out a way to make all links, including the headline, point to Teen Skepchick. Don’t you all love reading a home-grown blog?

    Anyway, feel free to comment on either this post or over on Teen Skepchick — your usernames are all good on both (though you might have to log in again).

  3. I would make that from cast concrete with an embedded magnet. The color could be more subtle – maybe some veining to make it look more like a natural rock? It currently looks too much like the Lowe’s “terra cotta” colored concrete stain. I think imitating basalt would be a good idea as basalt can have some magnetic properties.
