An evening of sci­ence humor

“It’s as much about expand­ing the mind as it is tick­ling the funny bone.”
– The Wash­ing­ton Times

For all audi­ences!

Music is not just for musi­cians. Art is not just for artists. And sci­ence is not just for sci­en­tists.

More info on Schmahl Sci­ence Work­shops:

The Bay Area is home to sig­nif­i­cant inno­va­tion in sci­ence and tech­nol­ogy.  How­ever many local school dis­tricts have elim­i­nated sci­ence edu­ca­tion from their cur­ricu­lum. The key is more Sci­ence, Tech­nol­ogy, Engi­neer­ing, and Math (STEM) edu­cated grad­u­ates if we want to con­tinue to be lead­ers in the global econ­omy. By part­ner­ing with schools, insti­tu­tions of higher edu­ca­tion, sci­ence based insti­tu­tions, muse­ums, local gov­ern­ments, and the busi­ness com­mu­nity our non-profit, Schmahl Sci­ence Work­shops (SSW) devel­ops young sci­en­tists to par­tic­i­pate in the next wave of sci­en­tific inno­va­tion. We need your help to keep Schmahl Sci­ence Work­shop strong.  We invite you to join us to cel­e­brate the accom­plish­ments of our stu­dents and to learn more about how you can inspire the next gen­er­a­tion of sci­en­tists.

Green Vanity License Plates

I’ve been per­form­ing stand up com­edy for two decades. I get all the stage time I need.  But I real­ize not every­one has such an out­let. And, yet, humans are such com­pli­cated, emo­tional crea­tures.  They have so much to express!

That’s why I’ve always been fas­ci­nated with van­ity plates and bumper stick­ers.  And I’ve always lumped them in with answer­ing machine out­go­ing mes­sages and Karaoke.  I think, for some peo­ple, these might be the only out­lets they have through which to express them­selves to the world.  They have so much to say – and so lit­tle space!  But humans are cre­ative.

And humans that drive the Toy­ota Prius Hybrid Vehi­cle in the San Fran­cisco Bay Area…  well, they are par­tic­u­larly cre­ative.  And con­sis­tent with their mes­sage.  I keep see­ing hybrids with green-themed van­ity plates.  Not every one below is a Prius, but most of them are.

Have you seen any other van­ity plates with envi­ron­men­tal themes or mes­sages?  Let me know!

The Man Who Mistook His Wife For A Yarmulke

I’m a Jew from Texas – a rel­a­tively rare breed, we can’t even prop­a­gate in the wild.

So, before my migra­tion to North­ern Cal­i­for­nia – which is coun­ter to the east­ward migra­tory pat­tern char­ac­ter­is­tic of my kind – a migra­tion which, over time, deposits us in the Sun­shine State like cal­cium car­bon­ate on a sta­lag­mite – I had the oppor­tu­nity to make soci­o­log­i­cal and psy­cho­log­i­cal obser­va­tions of an uncom­mon species.

I hope to some­day pub­lish my find­ings and share with the world these curi­ous and fan­tas­tic tales.

The work­ing title of my book is The Man Who Mis­took His Wife For a Yarmulke.

Smoking in California

Both my par­ents smoked cig­a­rettes while I was grow­ing up, and I grew to dis­like them (the cig­a­rettes, not my par­ents).

I’m a non-smoker, but not a mil­i­tant one. In fact, I think some of the smok­ing restric­tions here in Cal­i­for­nia are a lit­tle extreme. Maybe even com­i­cal.

My favorite exam­ple is the San Fran­cisco air­port. The only place you are allowed to smoke is in a spe­cial glassed-in room. It’s like a ter­rar­ium, in which you can view the smok­ers in a recre­ation of their nat­u­ral habi­tat.

If you haven’t seen it, get to the air­port; it’s worth the price of admis­sion. They have a loung­ing area, and a pac­ing area (because the smok­ers need their exer­cise).

If you come at the right time, you might see a cou­ple out bask­ing on rocks, or fight­ing amongst them­selves. Groom­ing each other. You see the par­ents bring­ing their kids up to read the lit­tle plaque: Homo emphy­se­mas.

The only thing they don’t have is one of those coin-operated machi­nes so you can buy cig­a­rettes to toss out to the smok­ers. That would com­plete your zoo expe­ri­ence:

“Hey, check it out! He’s smok­ing the one I threw! Isn’t that cute? Oh my god, that male smoker is try­ing to mount that female smoker! They’re try­ing to make lit­tle smok­ers!”
