What Should I Ask Dr. Christmas For For Decemberween?

I'm thinking about expanding my skeptical literature by another book or two. Already got God Delusion, Breaking the Spell, and, from my JREF donation a few years back, The Mask of Nostradamus. Probably a few more I can't think of right now, including a fair variety of stuff from Carl Sagan... I should reread his bashing of that Velikovsky guy sometime.

Any suggestions? Oh, and if you feel like donating, send me an email, and I'll send you my address.

Should I know what Decemberween is?

Click Dr. Christmas, and you'll get a glimmer of the Decemberween spirit.

I shouldn't have to feel old for getting Homestar Runner references. It just isn't right.

If it makes you feel any better, I'm only three years older than he is, and I got it.

On the other hand, I did spend several years putting up with the fact that, no matter the context, I was most likely to mentally expand 'VC' to 'Viet Cong'. Make of that what you will, in relation to feeling old from getting references.

Don't worry, there are plenty of young people who would get the reference. I know a few. I'm just not one of them.

Here's a suggestion - if you fancy journeying into the frustrating world of PoMo woo, then have a read of "Fashionable Nonsense" by ALan Sokal and Jean Bricmont.

I couldn't put it down.
