It’s almost here: The 120th Meeting of the Skeptics’ Circle

The Wheel of Time turns and Ages come and go, leaving memories that become legend. Lengend fades to myth, and even myth is long forgotten when the Age that gave it birth returns again.

Or something.

What I do know is that the Wheel has turned once again and a new meeting of the Skeptics’ Circle is fast approaching. Indeed, it is less than three days away. On Thursday, September 24, the 120th Meeting of the Skeptics’ Circle will be hosted by Kristjan Wager at Pro-Science. He needs your submissions, and he needs them by Wednesday night. So give them to him. Check out the guidelines for submissions, and get them to Kristjan according to his instructions.

Also notice that we still have one opening remaining this year on December 17. I’d love to fill that opening soon and declare 2009 a success. So, if you’re interested in hosting on that date, 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.
