    Lightbulb Skeptics in the Pub - Portsmouth

    Thought I'd post this here as I know this forum has a number of like-minded people with interests in science, rational thinking and of course, beer!

    I'm currently organising a Skeptics in the Pub (Skeptics in the Pub) meeting for the 25th January 2011 7:00PM at:

    The Mermaid
    222 New Road
    PO2 7RW

    This is an off-shoot from the Hampshire Skeptics Society.

    The pub have agreed to do some snacks too - trying to get an idea of numbers before we've had a meeting is near impossible! If you'd like to attend drop me a PM, reply on this thread, join our facebook group (Portsmouth Skeptics in the Pub ( Pompey SitP ) | Facebook) or Twitter feed @sitpportsmouth

    I'd urge anyone interested in attending or speaking to get involved - we are talking to some very interesting people at the moment!

    I used to live near there (a few hundred yards either side - obviously at 2 different times)!

    I don't believe it'll ever happen so there's no point!

    Sounds really good but it's a bit far for us - there isn't one near us unfortunately

    I can see that's going to be a bundle of fun:

    'Mmm, this beer tastes really nice'
    'There is no empirical evidence for that, so your talking rubbish'

    Ever the skeptic

    How is there no empirical evidence for beer tasting nice? I have loads!

    You're talking rubbish!

    I think you need to conduct your own research or wait for mine to be published and peer reviewed. I keep getting distracted or I fall over...

    Did I mention there's a skeptical meet up in a place that provides plenty of alcohol? :P

    I might even try to go. Gathering evidence for the existence of a "Sceptics Group" of course!

    I am naturally sceptical about any group that uses an American spelling...suggest the involvement of foreign government agencies perhaps?
