Science-based pub quiz: The End of the World edition


According to a serious misunderstanding of the Mayan calendar, and the last season of the X-Files, the world will be coming to an end this December. That would totally suck.

But before that probably doesn't happen, the Ottawa Skeptics will be celebrating the immanent armageddon with an apocalypse-themed edition of our science-based pub quiz.

Come on out for a quiz with no sports questions, lots of science and skepticism, and new fun rounds like Name That Formula and Cartesian Couplets.

As usual, you do not need a team. Just turn up and they will spontaneously form, like life in the primordial ooze.

And don't forget: at the end of the month Ottawa plays host to Eschaton 2012, Canada's coziest skeptical, freethought, and rationalist conference including speakers such as PZ Myers, Eugenie Scott and Chris DiCarlo. Find out more here. Tickets will be available at the pub quiz.

    FYI, 'Science-based' does not mean exclusively so. A working knowledge of eschatology, history and literature should stand you in good stead this time :)
