I'll be heading straight there from work, so should be in well before 6.
I should be finishing the book off there, so maybe that's how I could be recognised.

Hello!!

I only just heard about the talk by Richard tonight and I would LOVE to go!

Any chance that any of you might still have an extra ticket?

Thanks a lot!

From city centre number 7 and 45 will leave you just a few metres before the HorseShow House, on the same side of the road.

I'm with FXR and Gar in Paddy Cullens.
Call one of us if you want to meet.

It was good. It wasn't full. Only one nutter proud of the fact he does not read books.

Ah the nutter was funny. It pissed me off that there were empty seats when i think of all the people that were looking for tickets.
I got Richard's autograph! We were sitting front row centre hell yeah :D

To be honest I was slightly disappointed with the lecture.

Don't get me wrong I really enjoyed the experience and was chuffed to get my copy of TGSOE signed but

a) I'd have liked him to ad lib a little more
b) the time wasted on him not hearing the questions from the floor
c) the moderator I thought was poor

Does anyone else feel the same?

Quote of the evening.


Question: Why do you think they're is such a backlash against evolution.

Dawkins: Well I'm not sure its that bad in Ireland or UK but, there certainly is in America...
... a certain area of the country seems to be paranoid of what they see as an intellectual elite... in New York, Boston, L.A.. This sort of (makes semi-circle with hands) cerebral cortex around a reptilian brain.
