What does skepticism have to do with bar tricks? An insight into cognitive biases, assumptions, and the fun of realizing how you might have let yourself be fooled. Brian Brushwood, host of "Scam School" (if you haven't seen it…watch it!, and host/part of several popular live internet shows (NSFW, Weird Things, and a couple of others) will do a private Skype performance/conversation with us on Thursday evening! If you want to know why the diameter of a glass might be bigger than you think or why what you assume about strength or anatomy isn't necessarily so, well, I think we might find out some of those things on Thursday!
