    I haven’t seen much of +Philip Plait on here lately so I thought I’d share

    I use this all the time as a parlor trick, demonstrating, then handing the,
    um, victim the pair. Every once in a while someone figures it out, but most
    of the time they have to have it explained. I’d make them pay for the
    solution with a drink, but my daily limit is one drink.

    Every magician is screaming at their screen “It’s an illusion not a trick!”

    Topology rules!

    I see what you did there. A few hundred years ago, you would have been
    burned for this. A witch!

    Phil, you’ve been hanging out too much with Randi.

  23. Rau Rauzz says:

    is it the end of the world when he posts something that’s not about

  24. ForTiorI Johnny says:

    astronomy is fun, this is fun, there you go.
