Science Social - Cool Cafe

Join us for the first ever Science Social. No expertise is required, only an interest in the world around you. Join us to chat about the discoveries, questions and innovations that drive the progress of humanity... or whatever happens to comes up. This will be an unstructured event. We're just meeting to eat good food, have a drink and some good conversation. See you there!

    Wonderful location - excellent and patient service (separate checks for a dozen people!), good food, well thought-out beer list. I'm a big fan.

    See you next time! If you ever want to have an applied science lesson of fermentation science (beer), I can host and my husband will teach.

    The quotes of the night seemed to be: 1) Worship me for I have two eyes and a smile 2) Chaos is a constant. After three beers and sleep deprivation from this week, I may not remember those exactly, but close enough. Topics last night covered: eboli, identifying genetically enginieered eboli, opthamology, the meaning of life, Ray Kurzweil and the Singularity, religion, politics, robotics, economics, utopian society (is it possible), evolution, the exponential growth of technological advances, generational differences and technology, wormholes, super-duper massive blackholes and the end of the universe, pondering what it must be like to sit at the event horizon of a blackhole, the number googel (yes, that is the correct spelling), the number googelplex (yes, these last two are different), genetic markers, gender differences, and lots and lots of laughter. I know there were other things we talked about, but I need to get back to work. Can't wait for our next meeting.

    So many good jokes and ideas... If someone could reproduce Matt's "Two eyes and a face" sentence, that would be great. The people were friendly and the food was good. We even had free drinks. Thanks to Matt for the idea of getting together at Cool Cafe. I wish I would have had one of these when I first moved to San Antonio!

    Although I mainly only got to chat with half of the table, the conversation was great. Let's do it again! Quote of the night: "Two eyes and a smile." :D -Paulina
