Yet another appearance by the Bad Astronomer

My Yahoo! news page today had a cool headline: Top 5 Cosmic Myths. And who is the writer?

Getting tired of us bringing it up every time yet, Phil? :smiley:

Woo-hoo! I mean, Yahoo! Good job.

I finally managed to get my hands on a copy of his book last week - here I was disappointed because my alma mater’s bookstore didn’t have one in the science section, only to realize later that they had a separate astronomy section. :smack: Very engaging and well-written text; I’d thought it’d only be a slight brush-up for me, having a fair education in science in college, but it was extremely educational.

Nuts. I posted about this a couple of days ago, andth elag ate my reply!

Anyway, thanks for the kudos folks. And yes, writers hate it when people mention their work. :slight_smile:

I just bought the Bad Astronomy book approximately 25 minutes ago. I would have bought it sooner, but yesterday was a new moon and I didn’t wish to anger Thoth, the Egyptian Moon God, by discussing information about him while his back was turned. It’s bad luck, you know.
