By The Staff
Posted on: 2/25/2005

A stumper, a bumper, a floater, a bender, a waste, a challenge and more!

Welcome to the Skeptic Summary, a quick week-in-review guide to the Skeptic Friends Network and the rest of the skeptical world.

Forum Highlights:
Petals Around the Rose - It isn’t whether you win or lose…

PrimeTime… again - James Randi got 19 whole seconds.

Kil’s Evil Pick:
Challenge to Fred Williams - Kil’s thrown gauntlet is kicked aside.
Chat Highlights:
Wednesday: It was a tame chat this week, but interesting — as usual! One theme kept creeping into the conversation: Creationism! (What else?) Also: Funding graduate school, including MacArthur ‘genius’ grants and the Nobel Prize (keep dreaming!); California rainin’; one-liners; SFN shop talk; @tomic’s website adventures; Welcome, sumnihil!

Book of the Week:
Jaguars Ripped My Flesh, by Tim Cahill



“The author of A Wolverine Is Eating My Leg and Pecked to Death by Ducks gives new meaning to the words ‘going to extremes’ in this exhilarating — and frequently hilarious — collection of adventure travel writing. ‘Cahill … (writes) with the precision of John McPhee and Joan Didion tempered by a Monty Pythonesque sense of the absurd.’ (San Diego Union-Tribune)”
