Just a quick reminder: Houston area Skeptics in the Pub tonight. Details here. I’ll be there. Frankie will be there, as will Connie and Hortense. So come on out, and chill out with us over a pint or two.
Okay, so a couple weeks ago, I asked — actually I begged —Â you guys to submit some questions that we could use for the The New and Improved Ass Kicking Thursday Afternoon Afternoon Inquisition, and you responded. By the way, feel free to submit further questions in the comments, and every couple of weeks or so, I’ll use one of yours.
Today’s question (actually series of questions)Â comes from catgirl who asks:
Whatâ€™s an invention or discovery that we take for granted but that is actually really awesome (eg. toilet paper and condoms)? Is there an interesting/funny story behind your name, either first or last? What logical fallacy do you encounter most often, or which one annoys you the most? Which retro futuristic shows/books/movies seem the most outdated now? Which current technology makes you most glad to live in this time period? Journey: Best band ever or bestest band ever?
The Afternoon Inquisition (or AI) is a question posed to you, the Skepchick community. Look for it to appear Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays, and Sundays at 3pm ET. And the New and Improved Ass Kicking Thursday Afternoon Afternoon Inquisition is something Sam made up. Look for it to appear when Sam is out of ideas, sick, or just too drunk to even blink.
