First of all, hey look! Rebecca upgraded the site! You probably can’t tell, actually, except for that last night for about 20 minutes the site went down, and then this morning the recent comments list (over there on the right) was screwy because it was showing giant Gravatars with each new comment. Sorry about that! I fixed it so now the site is back and there are itty bitty Gravatars by your recent comments. Hooray!
As for the Comment o’ the Week, there were hardly any noms, and of the noms I actually saw, two were for Skepchick writers and one was for a person quoted in an article who doesn’t actually comment on Skepchick (as far as I know â€“Â if it so happens that Dr. Rosalind Arden is here, I will immediately award her the golden COTW).
Instead, the award will go to . . .

You know, determinism makes baby jesus cryâ€¦
Funny because it’s true. Congrats, Detroitus! Until Dr. Arden registers for Skepchick and posts to claim the prize for herself, you win the best prize ever: the chance to party and drink Pangalactic Gargleblasters with A, as well as Dr. Kirsten Sanford, Yau-Man, Karen Stollznow, and bunches of other skeptics in San Francisco. Oh wait. I see you’ve already claimed your prize. Hope you enjoyed it!
Speaking of meet-ups, Boston Skeptics are getting together tomorrow morning at 10am at the Museum of Science! Meet us in the lobby, or if you can’t make it that early, meet us at Porter’s Bar and Grill afterward (2:30 or 3pm-ish) for drinks and a skeptical talk. More info over on Boston Skeptics! I encourage you all to wear your geekiest t-shirt.
(And psst: remember, nominate your fave comments by quoting and writing “COTW!” so’s I can find ’em next week.)
