Weekly Roundup w/e 13th May 2011

Operation Human Shield

A weekly round-up of things we liked that we think you'd like also.

We’re back, did you miss us?  I’ve been away sunning myself in tropical Skegness in Billy Butlin’s exclusive resort.  As a result I haven’t been scouring the web for interesting things to show you.  Well, it was back to the grind this week but it wasn’t all bad.  Former tabloid hack and lovable cockney rogue Rich Peppiatt came to Birmingham Skeptics this week to lift the lid on the Tabloid press, really interesting talk, catch him if you can.  Anyway, we have some lovely, and not so lovely, things for you here:

  • Shortly after his death, rumours circulated that Osama Bin Laden was a fan of The IT Crowd.  Obviously that’s absurd, it was Big Bang Theory he liked.
  • For the ultimate in a nondenominational wedding ceremony, consider a quantum entanglement.  Although, "The quantum marriage will literally be broken up by skepticism about it,"
  • Florida ‘accidentally’ bans sex, fools.
  • Cancer has attacked his vocal cords, he cannot speak, but Christopher Hitchens still has his voice.

The weekly round-up is put together by Birmingham Skeptics co-organiser Paul Bryant (@thebigyeti)
