The Amazing Meeting 7 as reported in SF Weekly

There's a rather robust treatment of The Amaz!ng Meeting (TAM) and James Randi in this week's SF Weekly.

The Demystifying Adventures of the Amazing Randi

For some reason, this snippet resonated with me:
The Amazing Meeting attendees are mostly white males with glasses, facial hair, and a healthy appreciation of physics and Monty Python.
Hey, I attend American Association of Physics Teachers meetings. TAM's got no where near the ratio of said males compared to the AAPT.

That settles it - I'm shaving my beard and getting Lasik surgery.
However, I refuse to purge from my white-guy brain all of the Monty Python snippets I have committed to memory (This parrot isn't dead - it's resting!).

What is the airspeed of an unladen Swallow?

African or European?

I don't know that...

I'm the king - I'm supposed to know these things!

P.S. lied about the shave and the Lasik but I am working on my tan.

"Blessed are the cheese makers?"

"You're taking that far too literally - it's actually any who delve in the production of dairy products."

"Big Nose!"
