There will be a New Age Fair in Hillsboro, New Jersey on June 11th from 9-5pm by the fire station on 206. If you're anywhere in the area, come on by, I'll be there for a while.

Why continue? Because we must. Because we have the call. Because it is nobler to fight for rationality without winning than to give up in the face of continued defeats. Because whatever true progress humanity makes is through the rationality of the occasional individual and because any one individual we may win for the cause may do more for humanity than a hundred thousand who hug their superstitions to their breast.
- Isaac Asimov

Bump!

New Jersey is a bit out of the way for me. But I do love New Age expos and fairs. Someone should invent a bullshit absorption button that you wear on your shirt for fests of this kind. You know, like those buttons that people wear to warn them that they are approaching the absorption of too much radiation, mostly worn by people who work around radioactive stuff. Or perhaps, those buttons should be worn by the new agers. They are, after all, the people most at risk for a bullshit overload, if you think about it.

Do report back so we can compare notes…

Uncertainty may make you uncomfortable. Certainty makes you ridiculous.

Why not question something for a change?

Could just get a solid color button without printing, say solid red. If anyone asks, tell them it's a bullshit detector and that it gradually turns red in the presence of bullshit. Act startled/frightened when you notice the color.

That's awesome! If you decided to sell them, I wonder if people would take the red color of the buttons as a sign they don't work or do?
