Since it's near the beginning of the month, I'd like to issue the SFN's regular call for nominations for both "Post of the Month" and "Thread of the Month," for December. We'll collect the nominations here in this thread, and then the staff will make the final choices, and publish links to the selected post and thread in the first Skeptic Summary following the beginning of the next month, and I'll edit the selected items to reflect their status.

Please keep in mind the SFN's mission statement when nominating posts and threads:
The mission of the Skeptic Friends Network is to promote skepticism, critical thinking, science and logic as the best methods for evaluating all claims of fact, and we invite active participation by our members to create a skeptical community with a wide variety of viewpoints and expertise.
The reason I'm starting this thread now is that I'd like you to go ahead and post nominations while things are fresh in your head, instead of trying to remember stuff after the month in question is over. Feel free to nominate more than one post and/or thread, or even to "de-nominate" your own previous nominations if you feel that a better post or thread comes along later in the month.

Please do not nominate your own posts, or even threads you've started. And let's definitely refrain from arguing about nominations (or the results). Also, while I've got high hopes for this effort, I feel I must say that the staff reserves the right to disqualify, modify or otherwise ignore any and all nominations for "Post of the Month" and "Thread of the Month," and we also reserve the right to change, modify or otherwise ignore any rule or guideline, whether they be express, implied or completely unstated.

Agree, but I'd add that Ron had some three very good'ns toward the end to the asteroid thread.

Not all together sure my Chris'mas Carol is really in line with the Skeptic Friends mission, but many thanks for the mentions.

Thanks, filth. I tried to post this earlier at Starbucks between WalMart and KMart when I did the last asteroid comment, but connection started acting weird, so I see it didn't go. Thread of the Month I went along with Kil's good call on yer "Christmas Carol" and post was one of a few with great lines by siberia I tried to find but immediately just couldn't when at Starbucks, yet she's always coming up with good stuff so will write it down next time (sorry, sib.) Running late as usual... time to wrap this stuff b'for t'morrow (that's in 15 minutes!) In 12 minutes... Merry Christmas to all!

I think ronny white's mathematical calculations of the asteroid landing were quite impressive, and the fact that he put a twist of humor to it to keep us from wandering off to the kitchen for some coffee between paragraphs was an excellent twist.
