The countdown to 100 continues…the 97th Meeting of the Skeptics’ Circle

The relentless march to Skeptics’ Circle 100 continues, this time around with Evolved Rationalist over at Evolved and Rational. It’s all for the lulz and the mudkip. What it in fact does is make me realize that I’m not as hip to the latest Internet stuff as I thought, because I had no idea what lulz meant or what a mudkip is. Oh, well. It’s still a fantastic collection of the latest skepticism from around the blogosphere.

In the meantime, next up is The Uncredible Hallq, who’s a past host and did a great job then. I’m glad he’s doing it again, and he’ll be hosting on October 23. So get your posts ready and don’t forget to submit them to him, after, of course, checking out the guidelines. Unfortunately, it’s not as close to Halloween as I’d like, but what the heck.

Finally, if you think you might want to host one of these puppies (and, really, who wouldn’t?) send me a note after checking out the guidelines for hosts. I’ll scope out your blog to make sure that you don’t secretly blog for Age of Autism or Deepak Chopra and then get you on the schedule.

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.
