Our latest and greatest children’s book has finally been released for charity, A Very Skepticon Christmas!
This one is available through lulu.com, which will not only allow it to get into your hands pretty-darn fast, but also gives us a sizeable percentage of the profits after the manufacturering cost.
All of the profits are being split 50/50 with Camp Quest and the St Louis Children’s Hospital. Why? Because Skepticon skepti-hearts the shorties. Later today the ebook will be available for purchase on this very page.
This one will be available as tip jar. Donate what you can, even if it’s $0.01. You may even decide to look at it first before tipping, that’s cool too.
My goal is to have it available as a mobi (Kindle), epub (Nook) and pdf (Everything/Print). In all honesty, if you hate all those options, just shoot me a line via twitter @FloydZamarripa and we’ll work something out. Maybe you can only view it as an rtf, or you just want the content pasted into an email, or mailed to you as a handwritten letter, I don’t care.
Please spread this around like a fun, family friendly, pro-children STD wildfire via all of your preferred social media outlets!

Hurry up and five star our book so that we can take down that pretentious CL Fails and his uppity “The Christmas Cookie” from the top of the Children’s sales charts!
We are so so so so sorry.
Those t-shirts you are absolutely, and rightfully, pissed off at us over? You know? Those you ordered months ago? Well, they are finally en route. We will have them in our hands in 2 weeks. Then we will be able to ship them to you immediately.
We didn’t want to announce anything until we were 100% fucking certain that this was the case, due to the extreme amount of absolute cluster-fucks that have occurred at every level of this veritable Shirt Great Chicago Fire Hindenburg Apocalypse.
We are looking into ways we can make this up to you. Again, we are stupid amounts of sorry and feel absolutely awful and hate ourselves daily :(
We’ve got the transcript to Darrel Ray’s talk from SK5, entitled “The Shame of it All, or Why Do We Act Like Christians” by the most generous and awesome Kaoru Negisa. Enjoy!

The weekend is almost here! OMG! Here’s some stuff you should all check out:
Lastly, here’s some info about the livestreaming:
SKEPTICON – OFFICIAL SKEPTICS’ CONVENTION OF THE INTERNET*
For immediate and sensual release:
Started by a bunch of college nobodies, Skepticon has become the largest free skeptics’ convention in the United States. This year, Skepticon is going to be the largest convention on the planet and you’re invited. Since the internet is full of idea-sharing thought-communists, there will be a free livestream for the event at here. Be sure to check out the schedule. All we ask is that you join our Free Rice group here so you can feed a body while we feed your mind.
Also, this crap is expensive. You can donate here. Every little bit helps!
The Skepticon Team
P.S. For those of you lucky enough to attend in meatspace, there will be a food drive and a book drive at the event. Bring some nonperishable food and books, so you can show the world that you give a damn.
*As officially sactioned by Al Gore, Van Halen, and the Ghost of Alan Turing
Well, that’s about all the updates we have for now. Please travel safe and we will see you soon!
