Submit! Submit to the Skeptics’ Circle

Well, now. With the long four day weekend that many of us here in the U.S. have enjoyed finally over, it’s time to get back to serious business. Serious, but fun. I’m referring to the upcoming 125th Meeting of the Skeptics’ Circle, which will be held at Effort Sisyphus on Thursday, December 3. That means there are less than three days for you to get your submissions of skepticism, science, and critical thinking over to Techskeptic according to his instructions here.

For more specific guidelines of what we’re looking for in the Skeptics’ Circle, go here.

And don’t let Techskeptic down! Apparently the tryptophan-induced food coma from all that turkey consumption has led our usual posse of skeptics to neglect their duties. Techskeptic needs more submissions if he’s going to make this latest installment of the Circle yet another successful outing.

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.

Hey, Orac, you might want to look up “Desiree Jennings” on Wikipedia. The entry itself is not so bad. Click on the “discussion” tab atop the page. Your old friend “Brian” (known as JalusBrian on Youtube and Wikipedia) made sure to mention your blog.
Oh, as for the Skeptics’ Circle… Uh, I’ve got nothing.
