Apparently comic Tim Slagle thinks that my discussion of his comedy routine was horribly, horribly humorless and unfair to him and that I “set him up.” I just happen to be at work right now (it’s lunchtime, and I have a brief break between cases) and consequently don’t have time to address it until much later today, but I will link to Tim and let you see what you think until I get around to dealing with it. Stop by Tim’s blog and tell him hi for me. While you’re there, you might want to take a gander at this piece by him. The discussion of chemistry and thermodynamics there has to be read to be believed.
In the meantime, I will only point out that (1) I had no intention of blogging his show when I came–there was no “set up”; (2) it was Tim who approached me a “discussion” and then repeated his request the other day; and (3) Tim asked was for me to demonstrate that what Al Gore said about the 20 foot rise in sea level was “feasible” (his word), which I more than adequately did.
Oh, and I do not wear a cape and wrestling mask. Tim obviously doesn’t recognize the Doctor Doom costume, complete with mask that I wear to hide my face in shame from Dr. Egnor. Maybe I should start wearing a cape and wrestling mask, though. A nice Nacho Libre kind of get-up would work.
