 Beluga rate, um, Belgarath points out that "only at NerdCon" would there be a line for the men's bathroom and not the women's.

Yay, thanks for checking in, random bus rider poet guy.  Glad to hear you got home safely. 

necss was great and sguf reef tanks are the trivia kings of the nerds

These are true statements.  Team Reef Tank bested a dozen other teams of NECSS-goers in Skeptical Bar Trivia, winning a swag bag of goodies.  I made off with an interesting book; Henning and Belgarath claimed the signed Randi posters, and 6EQUJ5 kept the tote bag.  We also won a round of drinks, which the boys drank by themselves while 6E and I went home.

The purple and blonde women are the trivia contest administrators, with the victorious quartet of Henning, AQB, Belgarath, and 6E.

awwww I am very nostalgic and jealous and happy for y'all. I'll make it up there again someday, there are too many awesome people in that photo to not take advantage when you fly as a flock.

Wish I were there. Medappts had precedence (all is good so far) so t'was impractical. SKEPTICAMPING will ROCK, however.

It looks like we were photoshopped into that photo...

The bad part is that we had to correct the answers on (I think) two of them.

1) They thought that Watts directly related to lumens (for all sources)

2) I don't remember 2.

Thank goodness we got the watts question thrown out. LUX DAMNIT.
