On Thursday I spent some time at the Science Museum in London with my four year old son - much of it looking at rockets :D

When we went into the bookshop there (Ottakars) one of the first things I saw was a table displaying popular science. In the middle was a pile of 'Bad Astronomy' books, and the top one was on a bookrest, literally standing out above a lot of the books on the table which were just laid flat!

Wow, cool. Nice to know it's still doing that after being out for two years. I'll probably sell a few copies while I'm in Oz too. 8)

You know Phil, while you are down this neck of the woods, why aren't you going to skip over the Tassy and pay us a visit too?

He probably won't - because you live in the Lost Deimos Moon Base. :wink:

Oz? As in the Lake of the Ozarks? I live about 3 hours from there.

I meant Oz as in Australia (http://www.users.on.net/~ct/skeptic/nsw/a4_a3_poster.pdf).

I did not know Oz is a slang for Australia. Bummer. http://dictionary.reference.com/search?q=oz.

Maybe, I will visit you when I visit the SF Bay Area.

Phil, good luck on your trip to Oz.
