Default Stupid or funny things you said to speakers or each other.

Starting off, I will offer this pearl of honesty made by a member of the forum, witnessed by myself and one other. No names, you know who you are. So do many others.

Said female forum member who was three sheets to the wind after the dinner, spied AC Grayling at the Hilton, ran at him, wrapped her arms around him and said "I find intelligent men very sexy".

Me meeting Dan Barker. "I've read your book".

I also have the embarrassing moment of being drunk and finding my grammar completely gone so as to say something I have apologised for.

Okay, I have two. One is a story of me, the other is a story of TJarm who will remain unnamed.


First. Me.
Annie- "Oh Haiy PZ", enthusiastically puts hand out for a shake), "My name is Annie and I'm your Facebook friend."
PZ with bewildered look while putting hand out for a shake, "Oh really? Have you met my wife?"
Me. "No".
PZ introduces us quickly and walks away.



TJarm begins talking to Sam Harris telling him how she read his book and how it had a huge impact on her life and helped her understand important issues enormously. He was very interested.
Sam asked "which one".
Reply - "The faith one".

Not stupid or funny, but a shout out to the GAC Committee who oraganised the event.

I was in the green room with Annie Laurie Gaylor (an awesome lady). There were a few of us chatting away, and she said that not only was the food, the venue and the organisation better than TAM or TED, but she also reckons that the GAC committee could pull together a better show than the Reason Rally and get George Clooney and Brad Pitt to come.

As for silly, I was talking football to AC Grayling. Why - I have no idea. We were also discussing the continous renaming of (the currently known as)Etihad Stadium.

I'm trying to imagine Dawkins' face if he's told he's on the same bill as Clooney. ..

I was just thinking today about who they could get that would make the next event bigger than this one, and celebrities was about all I could think of.

My favourite moment like this, which wasn't something I said, or said by somebody I know, but the question Dawkins got; "Why haven't humans evolved brains that are bigger than the universe?" and his answer; "Well evolution is all about survival, so you have to think about the size of the birth canal."

Tjarm and I came up to Dan Barker and asked if we could get a photo. He said "Yes, of course."

I handed him the camera, nestled up against my wife and told him "just press the silver button"

He just stood there confused.

That is awesome! Funny hearing people talk about celebrities, Ms. Dilby and I were at the Crown on Sunday night and all the fuss was on about the Logies and "One Direction" (apparently a band I haven't yet had the pleasure of hearing) . She and I discussed that we had seen the "real" celebrities who people should be getting excited about.

@ Wolty, whoever that lady was, I can relate, I am not afraid to confess that I think A.C. Grayling was super sexy, with that hair, brain and voice, what a trifecta!
