The 125th Meeting of the Skeptics’ Circle: Choose your destiny

The 125th Meeting of the Skeptics’ Circle has been posted at Effort Sisyphus. This time around, you have a choice, either the predigested and linear or the more difficult but potentially more satisfying trip down the rabbit hole, never knowing what might pop up. Choose wisely.

Next up to host the Skeptics’ Circle two weeks hence is Weird Things. Be sure to join us if you’re a regular reader (or even if you’re not), and if you’re a blogger be sure to submit your best skepticism and critical thinking to the next host!

The 125 Meeting of the Skeptics’ Circle has been posted over at Effort Sisyphus. Go. Read. Learn. You even have a choice whether to get your information predigested or to explore it a bit. But choose wisely.

And don’t forget to join us in two weeks for the next meeting of the Skeptics’ Circle, which will take place at Weird Things. Bloggers, get your skeptical thoughts in order to produce the raw material for another great meeting of the circle!

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.

I really appreciate the blue pill option (fast track). I know people have fun with creativity, though I much prefer expediency.

Keep up the great work.
