Well, you could choose to take it on the second-hand testimony of people you don't know and will never meet, or, you know, on f-


Sorry, for a second there I forgot where I am. :P

Hello all, my name's Ben. I'm a lawyer (sorry) currently in Lexington, Kentucky, but I've been bouncing around the Great Lakesish region for most of my life. I've been observing the skeptical community from afar for the last couple years, but I've never really dived into anything yet and I finally decided to mix things up a little bit. In all my years of interneting I've never participated in a forum community (I'm only a few years late to the party), so go easy on me, I have absolutely no idea what I'm doing.

If you study cognitive biases long enough you come to the conclusion that no one else know what they're doing either.

I lived in Versailles for several years and went to Keenland for the races a fair bit. Lexington is a pretty cool city. I liked it there.

My first post and I've already stumbled into an existential crisis, a pretty good days work.

I like Lexington well enough, its better than I thought it might be, but its a little too far from the action for my taste.

Good to have a law-guy here, welcome, BEN.
