Holy crap, it’s the 99th Meeting of the Skeptics’ Circle!


It really is. It’s simply amazing that The Skeptics’ Circle has been around so long. It’s been around so long that we’re already up to the 99th Meeting of the Skeptics’ Circle over at Ferret’s Cage. The new generation of skepticism has landed with a great addition to the lore of the Skeptics’ Circle.

Next up is…well…me. Given how long it’s been since I’ve hosted a Circle, I decided to take the organizer’s prerogative and host the 100th Meeting of the Skeptics’ Circle. So send your entries to me by November 19, and I’ll see what sort of twisted and entertaining Circle I can serve up for you two weeks hence on November 20. What we’re looking for is described in these guidelines. And, of course, if you’re interested in hosting, take a gander at the schedule and guidelines for hosts and then drop me a line.

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.
