Our special guest will be Miranda (Swimmer963 on LW), sometime CFAR coordinator and generally cool person.

    Count me in, assuming someone is willing to give me a ride as before.

  2. Bro, ever attended my meetups? Every uni party. Scotty my man. Have a mate who lives in Waterloo doing clever things, really into rationalist/less wrong/clever clogs claptrap. He would love to drop in. Are you cool with relative strangers in your home? We both read your blog a great deal but don’t comment because we have busy, intensive lifestyles.
    Mad respect as always,
    Winny B
    P.S love your work

      You seem really weird, but I’ll be safely surrounded by lots of people I trust, so whatever, the more the merrier.

  3. no one special says:

    Despite earlier invitation, I cannot attend this one, as it is on a weekend that I have my kids.

    Maybe next time.

    Hello Scott this is irrelevant but is true and kind.
    I have a crush on you, would you like to know who I am or not?
    I am super dumb and you will not have a crush on me back, probably.

      Also I am not actually coming to the meetup I just thought that this comment is gonna be less of a derail here than on a discussion about an actual thing.

    • Scott Alexander says:

      Ozy already told me, but thank you for telling me again! You are far away and I don’t really talk to people much, but I like you too.

    I’m planning to come. I’m posting this mostly so that I can say “I post as covaithe” instead of “I don’t actually post very much”.

    I was wrong about the fake vaccines – it seems to be a real vaccine, but only one out of three standard doses:

    In March health workers administered the vaccine in a poor neighbourhood on the edge of Abbottabad called Nawa Sher. The hepatitis B vaccine is usually given in three doses, the second a month after the first. But in April, instead of administering the second dose in Nawa Sher, the doctor returned to Abbottabad and moved the nurses on to Bilal Town, the suburb where Bin Laden lived.


    So, not quite as bad, but pretty damn bad.
