CFI-LA Book Club for Skeptics

  • Oct 14, 2009 · 7:00 PM
  • CFI-LA

Bring a snack and join other readers on the second Wednesday of every month at 7 PM for CFI-West's Book Club for Skeptics. Visitors welcome! Heck, you don't even have to have read the book to join in the conversation! October's selection: Trick or Treatment by Simon Singh and Edzard Ernst We should be in the upstairs meeting room, but if not, there will be a sign when you come in the door from the parking lot to guide you. *********************** For more information about the Book Club, feel free to email me!

    I'm guessing on the number who attended.
    GREAT people to be around. I don't attend much because of work and early morning wakeup time. But when I do, it's energizing to be around such intelligent, enthusiastic people. If there is such a thing as social chemistry, this group of diverse people has it.

    Skeptics is like the social club of CFI in Hollywood. www.cfiwest.org .
    We also have a Wednesday night program of a presentation, and two Sunday's of more formal lecture. Gary the Grouch -- Gary the Grouch

    The flavor tripping was fantastic - thanks, Ross. I also really enjoyed the lively discussion about alternative medicine. Looking forward to next time.

    We had a great evening - a vigorous discussion about our book of the month and our very own scientific experiment with the magic fruit

    I'll bring something from my fridge. Does it make rotten food taste fresh?

  • Kristen

    Okay, I'm bringing lime juice, tabasco sauce and olives. I hope it doesn't make sweet things taste bitter because I'm also bringing rice krispy treats.

    Looking forward to it! The talk and the flavor tripping. I'll bring lemons.

    Don't forget, people. This book month's book club is also a flavor tripping party! We will be tasting the miracle fruits that change your taste buds so that bitter/sour things taste sweet! Bring stuff to try out. I'll bring the fruits and some Guinness, but perhaps some of you can volunteer to bring some other things.... lemons, brussel sprouts, tabasco sauce...

    Loving this one!
