My Science is My COTW

First off ladies and gentlemen, do you have your tickets to NECSS? It’s April 17th in New York City and I’m a-gonna be there, along with James Randi, DJ Grothe, George Hrab, and the rest of the Skeptics’ Guide to the Universe crew! Get your tickets nao.

This week’s Comment o’ the Week goes to agashem, who calmly responds to Jenny McCarthy thusly:

Can I just say that the quote “My science is Evan.” makes not one whit of sense? I have been pissed off that no one interviewing this woman has told her that that sentence is meaningless and could she explain herself more clearly. It irks me that since she is portraying herself as a fierce mommy warrior nobody calls her on statements like that. ARRRRGGHH (BTW I know she has made many more silly statements but this one really gets me. It’s as nonsensical as saying “My cat is my physics.”)

Runner-up goes to Imrryr for inventing a useful new god:

@Amy: Procrastinatius (the Roman god of procrastinating) will be most pleased by this sacrificial offering of your time that you’re making today. Just don’t bother to call on Him for any favors in return, He’s always really slow to respond for some reason.

Praise! Happy Friday, everyone.

  1. Well, since I hate to see a comment section go unused…
    Rebecca, I got our tickets for NECSS, to answer that question. If you are at Drinking Skeptically, we’ll buy you and Sid some (cold) beers. Unless you prefer a nice, warm lager now :)
    What else? Uh… something, something, something dark side. Something, something, something complete.

  2. I registered for NECSS and for the Speakers Dinner both on the first day they registrations were open. I’ve never been to New York City nor to a skeptical conference before, so I figured why not do both at once? Since I won’t know anybody there, can I just sit beside you at the dinner? :-)
