I never get stalkers like this. What is the secret of Phil‘s animal magnetism?

    The trouble with octoPodZ is that they hang tight and never let go.

    But they are are yummy.

    should get a restraining order of at least 500 km

    That is necessary but not sufficient – at a guess that guy have erected a telescope larger than Dr Phil’s. Let us plan to make Phil the first astronomer on the Moon!

    You need to speak at TAM, PZ.
    And, yes, that’s pronounced “Pee-Zed”. As another TAM speaker, Richard Dawkins, rightly claims…

    Anybody editing footage of some-one they admire to Bonny Tyler is very likely to be highly unstable mentally and should get a restraining order of at least 500 km.

    OK, exactly what is a “total eclipse of the heart?” I get the eclipse/astronomy thing, but this sounds like one of those situtations in which everyone was calling in radio programs to dedicate Whitney Houston’s recording of “I Will Always Love You,” without realizing the damned thing was about breaking up.

    Well, he does look sexy in that prison-orange shirt.

    I thought it was going to be a frothing hate-fest, too, but it was rather poignant.

    How did he get Adam from “Mystbusters” as a fan? I’m jealous!

    Most of those photos seem to be from James Randi’s Amazing Meetings (I’ve been to all 5.) So I second kimpatsu #9. Go to TAM6 — better yet, speakat TAM6 next June in Vegas — and you, too, can gather your disgusting little pack of adoring groupies, toadies, and sycophants around you. And I will have to make a difficult choice.

    Oh yeah. And pose in the buff for the Skepchik calendar. It’s for science.

    Oh, I’m glad Mike cleared Steve’s comment up for me.

    I was gonna tear him a new one for promoting cruelty to geese.
