    ICYMI: February 10 – February 16 on the Skepchick Network

    It’s a very exciting day inside this week’s ICYMI post. If you’ll notice, we have a new edition to the Skepchick family. It’s Skepchick.no, blog-casting from Norway straight into your computer! Go show them some love, won’t you? Teen Skepchick What is Glass? Is glass a liquid or a solid? Or something else entirely? Genetically Modified Salmon: Food or “Frakenfish?”…

    Happy Darwin Day, Everyone!

    One of the things I like about celebrating obscure or non-mainstream holidays is that you get to make up your own traditions. Today, February 12th, is Charles Darwin’s 204th birthday, and in my house we celebrate it with food, puns, and entertainment.

    Think about the last time you completely changed your world-view. I mean, completely. Like, one week you are absolutely positive the world is flat and still, and the next you realize that it’s an oblong oblate spheroid circling a flaming ball of gas in space. I’m sure many of you can think of a personal example. It happened to me,…

  • Darwin Day fast approaches!

    Don’t forget, dear pals, that this Tuesday is February 12. Which is to say, it’s Darwin Day! Like last year, I’ll be celebrating at the Redline in Cambridge, MA. If you’re nearby, stop on over and toss back a few in the name of evolution. If you’re not nearby, check out the goings-on in your area. And hey, you still…
