Let’s be honest, folks, this week sucked. I don’t mean it sucked in terms of quality on Skepchick, because there were plenty of great posts, especially over on Teen Skepchick. No, this week sucked because The Blue-Collar Scientist died, Robert Lancaster is in the hospital, Doctor Calimari had an asthma attack, the MBTA made my commutes miserable, and a multitude of other things too depressing and/or personal to mention. Oh, but one superstitious culture says today’s a lucky day, so . . . let’s all get drunk and celebrate anyway.
Comment o’ the Week!
Congratulations to jtradke, Kimbo Jones, DMS, GabrielBrawley, laarree, Expatria, and JOHNEA13. All of you wrote posts that made me chuckle, on the two different threads linked. For making me chuckle during an otherwise crap week, you win THINGS THAT MAKE US HAPPY. That’s right, you win an entire thread of comments filled with links to things that make you, me, and the rest of Skepchick.org laugh.
That means that the rest of you readers should post your links in the comments — please make use of videos, pictures, blogs, whatever. Just make it funny, and bonus points if it’s skeptical, too. My first contribution is after the jump.
