SASHA Meeting Summary: Tuesday, April 26, 2011

Welcome to the official MU SASHA blog!

Please join our group on Facebook.

Tonight we began by very briefly discussing a New York Times article borrowing from an Onion article about President Obama being in a teen magazine. The New York Times later had to print a correction, as the Onion article was obviously not accurate.

Was also continued our Science VS Fiction game, where someone presents 4 science based news articles, one of which has a change to make it false. After a brief discussion everyone votes for which one they think is false.

The 3 true articles were:

Beetle Bling: Researchers Discover Optical Secrets ‘Metallic’ Beetles 

Large Galaxies Stopped Growing 7 Billion Years Ago

King Crabs Invade Antarctica

The the correct version of the article that was made false was:

Chernobyl’s Radioactivity Reduced Populations of Birds of Orange Plumage, Study Finds

We also discussed the lengthy Facebook conversation that took place on Dave Muscato’s wall after a Zombie Jesus Day post. Here is an image of that discussion.

Afterward many of us went to the Heidelberg where there was plenty of open discussion.

Hope to see you next time.

-Tony Lakey
