The 110th Meeting of the Skeptics’ Circle: At the Ferret’s Cage

As you may recall, the last meeting of the Skeptics’ Circle never came to pass due to the illness of the host. That was to be the 110th Skeptics’ Circle. Given that I had somehow screwed up and used the same number twice, though, it all works out if I simply label this Skeptics’ Circle the 110th.

And a fine edition it is, hosted as it is by Corey, our youngest host thus far. So, check out the 110th Meeting of the Skeptics’ Circle: The Calvinball Edition.

Next up to host will be Action Skeptics on May 21. Get your best skeptical blogging ready!

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.
