Today’s Overcompensating is remarkably appropriate to this post, so go read it and then come back here.
This Monday, September 29, is the next Boston Skeptics in the Pub with guest speaker Blake Stacey! Blake is well-known around these parts as a commenter and official Friend of Skepchick. He also has a popular blog called Science After Sunclipse, which recently joined the ScienceBlogs collective. SciBlogs are marking their One Millionth Comment, and this event will serve as celebration of this momentous occasion. Skepchick will be celebrating our 32,997th comment, which I’m trusting we’ll get by then (we’re at 32,632 right now).
Blake will be speaking about the physics of hallucination, which is what makes the above comic so damned relevant. It’s sure to be a fun time for all, so come out and meet some fellow skeptics, scientists, and heathens. As always:
Also, last week I recorded an interview with Amanda Marcotte for her Reality Check podcast. Go listen here! Be warned: I was so, so babbly. It was fun, though, and Amanda is way hip.
