A very poo-filled Skeptics’ Circle

Just a reminder that the Skeptics’ Circle is fast approaching. This time, it’s hosted once again by a guy who goes by the name of The Pooflinger, and it’s set to be flung at the blogosphere next Thursday, April 13. Submissions are due sometime in the evening next Wednesday.

As you may recall, The Pooflinger did one of the more creative renderings of the Skeptics’ Circle ever, turning it into a veritable Shakespearian drama of skepticism. I can’t wait to see what he comes up with this time. However, he can’t do it if you don’t provide him with the raw material in the form of good skeptical blogging. So, between now and Wednesday, send him your best stuff.

Finally, I’m still looking for hosts. Yes, we’re booked into the early fall, but I’m not about to sit back and chill when it comes to looking for new hosts as long as there’s still one open slot in the summer that isn’t filled yet, namely August 31. So if have a blog and you think you could be the next Amazing Randi or Michael Shermer (or even if you just wish you could be), drop me a line and I’ll get you on the schedule, either for August 31 or for one of the other open slots later in the year.

By Orac

Orac is the nom de blog of a humble surgeon/scientist who has an ego just big enough to delude himself that someone, somewhere might actually give a rodent's posterior about his copious verbal meanderings, but just barely small enough to admit to himself that few probably will. That surgeon is otherwise known as David Gorski.

That this particular surgeon has chosen his nom de blog based on a rather cranky and arrogant computer shaped like a clear box of blinking lights that he originally encountered when he became a fan of a 35 year old British SF television show whose special effects were renowned for their BBC/Doctor Who-style low budget look, but whose stories nonetheless resulted in some of the best, most innovative science fiction ever televised, should tell you nearly all that you need to know about Orac. (That, and the length of the preceding sentence.)

DISCLAIMER:: The various written meanderings here are the opinions of Orac and Orac alone, written on his own time. They should never be construed as representing the opinions of any other person or entity, especially Orac's cancer center, department of surgery, medical school, or university. Also note that Orac is nonpartisan; he is more than willing to criticize the statements of anyone, regardless of of political leanings, if that anyone advocates pseudoscience or quackery. Finally, medical commentary is not to be construed in any way as medical advice.
