"O nobly-born, the Great Glorious Buddha-Heruka, dark brown of color, with three heads, six hands, and four feet firmly pastured... will come forth from within thine own brain and shine vividly upon thee. Gear that not. Be not awed. Know it to be the embodiment of thine own intellect... Simultaneously with the recognition, liberation will be obtained." - Bardo Thodol (Tibetan Book of the Dead)

"The root of all superstition is that men observe when a thing hits, but not when it misses." - Sir Francis Bacon

Special Guest: Richard Saunders!

That makes one dozen! And a fine batch they are... we had
a sweet interview with one of the friendliest skeptics on earth. You may have seen him on the news as a lone voice of reason, or seen his TANK Vodcast videos on youtube.com. He also heads up the Mystery Investigators, a science based variety show targeted to kids and teens.

If that's not enough, he's an origami expert.
He invented an "origami" this! ->
I'm just kidding... Phil Plait can't fly.
