Skepchick joins the race

When I announced our participation in the Light the Night fundraising drive, I mentioned that another network would be joining in, too, and that we might have to set up another challenge award for beating them. Well, here they are: Skepchick has formed a team, and since our goal is to raise $10,000, they’ve set their goal to $10,001. Ooooh, it’s on.

So what should I do if Freethoughtblogs outdoes Skepchick? Given that we’ve raised $4000 so far, and they’ve raised less than $100, I think it should be a very very small forfeit, don’t you? Just to be fair?

    I think you should have to go on google+ during a relaxed evening and *not* drink scotch or eat chocolate for 30 minutes straight.

    Tut-tut! With your insistence on besting Skepchicks, you show your true colours, PZ. Just a typical bloke who: always has to put the women in their place.

    Yes, that was snark.

    I thought the usual forfeit was bottles of Scotch whisky, or to wear the other team’s hockey jersey. Skepchick vs. Pharyngula T-shirts?

    I think that Greta’s suffragette colours would be loverly.

    So feminist hair is a thing after all!

    I was thinking you could have a google plus event. You drink a shot every time something stupid gets said watching a Kirk Cameron video but alcohol poisoning would be a clear danger. Besides, there isn’t enough matter in the universe to make the amount of alcohol one would need to stomach the video, not to mention the bottle to hold it.

    i’d donate to your team but i tapped myself out donating to my own team. My dad passed from leukemia in March so this means a lot to me. Our walk was last Friday. Got a pretty big turn out in KC. Our team was just outside the top 10 in family/friends donations (about $2200) for Kansas City.
