Did you get all that? Good.
First of all, Boston Skeptics in the Pub is coming up on Monday night and it’s going to be more fun than a bag full of tiny, murderous clowns.* Like last month, we’re doing skeptical trivia with an emphasis on reality and no sports questions. Plus: prizes! Seriously, last time was too much damned fun.
Also, I’m going to be in New York next (Labor Day) weekend and I have Saturday free. I was thinking of some hanging out, maybe a museum visit or something, maybe dinner, maybe drinks. Nothing’s set in stone so please comment below if you have ideas.
Some of you already know about those two events, plus all the other Skepchick meet-ups that are happening, because you are on the Skepchick mailing list. For the rest of you, why not sign up? Use the form in the left-hand sidebar, there. See it? Lower. Lower. YES THERE. I promise not to spam you.
Okay, on to the much anticipated COMMENT O’ THE WEEK!
So I got bashed by a car earlier this week, which sucked. But, out of tragedy rises a phoenix of comedy in the form of this gem from durnett:

As soon as I heard of your accident, I collected some roadkill and boiled it down to a broth which I diluted 300 times to concentrate the powers of not-hit-by-a-car. I then digitally scanned the water memory and encoded it into this comment. You should begin feeling better as soon as you are healed.
I am also working to imbue a crystal with the essence of Bigfoot so that you can cross streets with his incredible ability to dodge racing vehicles. Look for the crystal to be delivered to you in a dream!
Durnett, I got the dream crystal, thanks! Only after a few seconds it melted and turned into my high school Latin teacher, who said, “Sic transit gloria” and then handed me a turnip. Then the moon exploded but it was full of Big League Chew bubble gum. What does it mean?
*Holy mother of god that is frightening and I apologize.
