Busy busy busy — #MnCOSE17 and #Skepticon

This day is just done. I’m at the MnSTA conference on science education today, speaking about the state of evolution education this afternoon (there is bad news, and there is good news, but the bad news is surprisingly manageable). Once I’m done babbling, I’m rushing off through rush hour traffic to catch a plane to Skepticon, sorta. In my quest for a cheap flight that was compatible with my awkwardly full schedule, I’m catching a flight to Baltimore (?), with a connection to Atlanta, and from there to Springfield, Missouri. This is too complicated. I’m already scheduled to not get in until tomorrow morning, and I have a feeling that something is going to break and who knows when I’ll arrive. Everyone will be all partied out by the time I drag myself in.

Anyway, you know the drill. Behave yourselves while I’m out of touch, spit venom at the trolls, and I’ll clean up the mess tomorrow morning.

    Good luck.
    “This is too complicated ”
    When passing through Springfield, ask Lisa Simpson to help you sort out any future NP-complete problems.

    I’d make my usual snark about using the TGV instead, but with the all-tracks-lead-to-Paris (broadly speaking) design of the system, and connecting local services at one or both ends, some trips can seemingly be as complicated…

    Jesus christ, it really is sad to see how close an eye they keep on this place – first chance they get, the pop out to be dickheads while chortling to themselves about how super cool they are.

    Number 6: mostly a lurker but sticking the old eyes above the waves to say this^^X1000. I suspect they congratulated by each other for being such brave snowflakes. Pathetic.
