Hi everyone,

The Science Nation is touring *Spot the Bull S...cience
<http://www.thesciencenation.com>* - an event of intelligence,
interrogation and intrigue. Any help you can give promoting the event will
be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Spot the Bull S…cience

What do the moon landings, global warming and vaccination all have in
common? They’re conspiracies perpetuated by scientists, right? Yeah, maybe
not.

To demonstrate just how hard it is to get scientists to believe bad science
(BS), the Science Nation is holding a contest of intelligence,
interrogation and intrigue that sees a lineup of scientists trying to fool
you and each other into believing complete BS!

Come along and join the most enjoyable experiment in BS you’ll ever see. *Spot
the Bull S…cience* is 90 minutes of science & laughs that promises to be
fun for (almost) everyone.

Events will be held on the following dates and cities:
