54th Skeptics' Circle

It's up at Action Skeptics.

Open thread as usual, except voice-overs of your internal dialog/monologue are FORBIDDEN!

I read the post. It was short, and linked elsewhere. I pondered for a moment whether I should click. I was unsure. Where would it take me?

People were starting to stare. Why? Was I speaking out loud again? Damn me for having an external monologue. Damn that surgeon who swapped my internal monologue with my speech centers!

*Oh, spam. Well, I can still clean up the house while BD's outside pooping.*

Where's Cocksnack when you need a good stupidity laced flurry of creationist schmeg to lighten up the boredom?

Bronze Dog said...

I shook my head. The good Reverend was behind the times. The Creationist smeghead had moved onto denying the germ theory of disease, positing that HIV was piloted by tiny little angels.

I had heard they were into drinking and dancing on the head of a particular Sewmeister pin, adjacent to the eye of a needle where they made a particular brand of cigarettes, but I'll still need to investigate.

Rockstar Ryan said...

*Smeghead? I wonder what the hell that is? If it's bad, it describes Cocksnack well. And why does my internal monolouge start and end with *?*

Bronze Dog said...

Open thread question:

Is anyone familiar with Dr. Janet Starr Hull and her site www.sweetpoison.com? She claims aspartame and other artificial sweeteners cause all sorts of medical problems, plus volcanoes and Geraldo Rivera.

Has anyone debunked any part of her claims?

Bronze Dog said...

Doesn't mention her by name, but Quackwatch has some stuff on the medical side. Don't know anything about it causing volcanoes or Rivera.

You can also search from the main site for more.

Rockstar, you need to watch some Red Dwarf. Further proving that when it comes to sci-fi, the British run circles around us.

"except voice-overs of your internal dialog/monologue are FORBIDDEN!"

Geez, I guess I'm just banned then.

Can I post other people's internal monologue?
The Red Sox were in town, but I didn't care because it was Tuesday, and I was on my way to see Morrie. He couldn't go to the bathroom by himself anymore, but his indomitable spirit...

Man Called True said...

The Man Called True hunched over his computer, glasses low on his nose and mustache being fussy as always. He merely smirked at Bronze Dog's demand. Monologues were for "hard-boiled" detectives. He was just fine with third-person narration.

Seeing the post count, the Man Called True frowned, checking his brittle nails. High post counts so quickly usually meant the work of Ol' Wormy, and he wasn't sure if he was willing to deal with that. But as he read the posts, he smiled. Some people were just being silly.

Having opened the Skeptic's Circle in a new window, he pushed his glasses up and sighed. This was going to be a long night...

(Yes, I do fancy myself a writer.)

I've seen some Red Dwarf in college, but that was...almost 10 years ago...

*Damn, getting old sucks*

My geekery has been pretty limited lately to video games and Monty Python.

AustinAtheist said...

Hey, Cocksnack! I thought you might be trolling here.

This one's for you.

Tom Foss said...

Actually, Cocksnack's been pretty quiet since Matt's smackdown. In fact, I've only seen him pop up once since then, and that was so halfhearted. Perhaps he's given up his trollish ways...

...Nah.

Bronze Dog said...

He's slinking in the shadows, consolidating his trollish powers.

For one thing, it takes 18 days for a cleric to forge a +2 flaming wet noodle of devastating TROOOOOF to whack us with.

Tom Foss said...

Ooh, wouldn't it just be the best thing ever if he were a 9/11 Twoofer too?

And a mercury-autism kook! Oh, he could be a one-stop woo-shop!

Bronze Dog said...

Yeah. Evolution denial, HIV-AIDS denial, anti-vax... Wouldn't be at all surprised if he denies global warming.

Suspect that if he went 9/11 Troofer, he'd probably rant about Freemasons, da JOOOOOS, and say that Bush is working for us.

Tom Foss said...

He posted over on PZ's blog as "PZ's Dad." Guess what gave it away!

Interesting. I guess the fact that empirical studies are being done by scientists does not make it a science.

This is what is called the Fanciful Land of the Calvinist where one thinks that continuingly calling something a non-science will hopefully make it unscientific.

You got it love it. Hopefully these nutcases will stay there and play pretend. We need people like PZ to add credibilty to ID and expose evolution for the elitist stupidity that it is.

A littel louder PZ so that everyone can hear you please!

Thanks, bud


Emphasis mine. You can check it out here.

AustinAtheist said...

I just laid a trap for him over at PZ's. Thanks for the link, Tom.

I see that Cocksnack has been disemvoweled.

Ouch.
