For those who live in Ohio, and maybe don't read the BA's blog, you might find this interesting...

http://blogs.discovermagazine.com/badastronomy/files/2011/04/osu_studentsforfreethought.jpg (http://www.sffosu.org/)On Thursday, April 28th at 8:30 p.m. Iíll be at Ohio State University to give my "Death from the Skies!" talk, because I love scaring undergrads but never had the desire to actually become a professor.

The talk is sponsored by the OSU Students for Freethought (http://www.sffosu.org/) and was organized by my old pal Ashely Paramore (yes, that Ashley Paramore (http://blogs.discovermagazine.com/badastronomy/2010/08/10/i-am-interviewed-in-a-hot-tub/)). Theyíve set up a Facebook page for the event (http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=199756636725130) with more info, and a page (https://www.wepay.com/tickets/view/94962) where you can get front row tickets (the talk is free, but they have a handful of reserved seats up front theyíre selling) and also get tickets for a fund-raising dinner for the group.

This will be a lot of fun! Of course, as a University of Michigan graduate, I suppose showing my face at Ohio State University is pretty bold, but then I only cared about U of M football because it meant traffic was light in Ann Arbor and I could get to the farmerís market more easily on Saturdays. Hopefully thatíll keep the OSU pitchforks and torches at bay.

Hmm. You had me until that "Michigan grad" part . . .

I may have to check it out but not sure yet if I'll be free tomarra. I'll be up that way on Saturday; if you're reading this Phil, you're welcome to stick around for the weekend and go to the Crew (soccer) game with us for my birthday ;) I'll even buy you a beer (. . . since my brother's paying for all the drinks.)
