The 29th Meeting of the Skeptics’ Circle

An excruciatingly large 29th Meeting of the Skeptics’ Circle has been posted at the Huge Entity. As usual, the skeptical blogosphere has come through, and Danieru has managed to corral the best skeptical blogging out there in, of all things, Mu-Haiku form, as he says:

In prose nor dialectic,
equality you’ll find,
but semantic perspiration,
of testosteron-ic kinds.

Today’s sceptical enquiries,
their beauty will astound,
an inner neutral wonder,
in Haiku can be found.

But please whilst idly glancing,
debating inner scathings,
think to yourself in half-rhyme:
Where are all the sceptic ladies?

Good question. Where are the Skepchicks when you need them?

Next up is Paige’s Page, where the 30th Meeting of the Skeptics’ Circle will appear two weeks hence on March 16. Start thinking of some good material to submit, and join us back at Paige’s Page in two weeks.

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.
