  • 09:11 Yay SGU time! Wow 'Skeptics in the tub' really does look like 'man soup.' :P #TAM8 #
  • 09:20 I think you probably kill energy vampires by driving a wiimote through their hearts. And maybe stuffing their mouths with tamagachis. #TAM8 #
  • 09:21 Did your energy vampire just go from suck to blow? #TAM8 #
  • 09:29 Is it me or did Bob and Jay suck all the pigmentation out of Steve? Maybe they're melanin vampires. #sgu #TAM8 #
  • 09:35 Still want an iPhone. Considering giving in & getting a droid. #
  • 09:57 Still v amused that the men's has a line abd the women's doesn't. Which is funny and sad at the same time. #TAM8 #
  • 10:07 I have gotten a lot of compliments about my hair this weekend. :) #
  • 10:13 Yay Massimo! Get the CATO institute! #TAM8 #
  • 10:19 Between Phil and Massimo there's a sense of the need for self examination and honesty even when it's unpleasant. I think that's good. #TAM8 #
  • 10:21 'To reject a scientific notion without proper expertise is a form of anti-intellectualism.' (Massimo) #TAM8 #
  • 10:23 'If you don't hace political opinions you're probably kind of a boring person.' /agree! #TAM8 #
  • 10:45 I think Massimo's point was more anyone can promote & enjoy & understand science, but it does take technical expertise to DO it. #TAM8 #
  • 10:48 ...and formulation & analysis of data/results is a big part of actually doing science. #TAM8 #
  • 10:51 I need to check out Women Thinking Free. #notetoself #
  • 11:50 Excellent alternative title by Bruce Hood: Why people believe rhe weirdest shit. #TAM8 #
  • 12:25 Bruce Hood did a GREAT job. And I hadn't heard about his involvement in getting the bomb detector douchebag arrested. Good on him! #TAM8 #
  • 12:30 Lots of good people on the medicine panel; Dr. Rachie, Dr. Hall, Simon Singh's Hair, Orac, Ginger Campbell, and Simon Singh. #TAM8 #
  • 12:37 Do Dr. Gorski and Simon Singh WANT to share a mic? There's an unused one just sitting at the other end of the table... #TAM8 #
  • 12:43 So what is a homeopathic hospital? An Olympic swimming pool someone's dropped a brick in? #TAM8 #
  • 13:09 'Spherical bastard.' I like that insult. Shall have to remember it. #
  • 14:11 Why are they serving floral foam that's been decorated like a cake? #TAM8 #
  • 14:18 I missed the picture. FML. #
  • 14:55 First question to David Javerbaum was re: feminist complaints. Don't know that much about it myself. Basically 'it's BS and unfair.' #TAM8 #
  • 15:09 re: glen beck "That is what I will miss the least: spending the first half hour of my day getting doused with shit through my eyes." #TAM8 #
  • 15:12 "You know the plane works. You think the parachute works." LOL ILU Hal. #TAM8 #
  • 15:17 James McGaha - more people believe aliens are here than believe in evolution. Sad. :'( #TAM8 #
  • 16:05 Randi: sincerity is v important in investigation. Have to sincerely investigate not just set out to prove preconceived solution. #TAM8 #
  • 16:09 LOL Randi called Joe Nickell a chicken for not doing challenges. XD #TAM8 #
  • 16:24 Karen Srollznow: "They think using scientific tools is the scientific method. They're not the same thing." #TAM8 #
  • 16:32 Guy in #TAM8 just stood up and claimed he can cure post operative numbness with some kind of ability from six feet away. Million $ chall ... #
  • 16:34 And now he claims that he can do it on a phone & devices. Uh huh. He's put in an app for the challenge apparently. As of yesterday. #TAM8 #
  • 16:38 People listened to the challenge dude & laughed at the lady asking who (as a skeptic) she should call if she sees a ufo. Seems unfair. #TAM8 #
  • 16:57 So many cute bald guys but no @georgehrab in sight. :'( #TAM8 #
  • 17:19 Jennifer Michael Hecht: "It's not enough to just come out of the closet. You have to leave the house." #TAM8 #
  • 17:53 I agree with Provenza's "everyone has their own process." I try to keep in mind that not everyone follows mine. #TAM8 #
  • 18:28 I love the Dawkins said "any skeptic worhth HER salt." #TAM8 #
  • 18:29 And I like they're getting the skeptic/atheism thing out of the way up front. #TAM8 #
  • 18:35 Go DJ Grothe! It's better to be a skeptic of everything than simply a skeptic of gods (an atheist). #TAM8 #
  • 18:49 Okay that kind of pisses me off. "Profligate fantasy" my ass. It's v. possible to enjoy fiction and know it for what it is. #TAM8 #
  • 18:51 Fantasy lit is only a primer for credulity if you are lead to believe that it is more than a story or fiction I would think. >:( #TAM8 #
  • 18:54 Can only go by my own experience, but the fantasy I read made it easy for me to accept that the stories of miracles were also fantasy. #TAM8 #
  • 19:02 In other news, I am enjoying the interview format. #TAM8 #
