A note from the organizer:
A few months back a friend of mine introduced me to the hit TV show “The Big Bang Theory.” I was floored in hysterics. Never in my life did I think a show about science nerds would be approved for main stream TV. I was given a set of DVDs and watched them through — never getting tired of the antics of Sheldon, Leonard, Penny, Raj and Howard. A few of my nerd friends came over and we watched 4 or 5 of what we considered were the best and had a riotous night of fun. This got me thinking. A similar event could be a wonderful evening for LAGLS. So, I’ve been able to arrange on Saturday April 10 for a showing and discussion of some of the “best” of TBBT at the home a long time friend in Beverly Hills. We can accommodate 30 people. I also secured a sponsor for the event so there is a free dinner for all (vegetarians are welcome). At the end of the evening, we will discuss how TBBT has increased the interests in science education.
I contacted the publicist for the show thinking they may be interested in having one or more of the actors/writers for the show to attend. What better way to meet real nerds from Cal Tech or JPL? Alas, they were not interested (probably because we could not offer money). But I put out the call. Maybe one of you personally know one or more of the actors/writers and could make a pitch for them to attend– unofficially that is. Sorry, but we don’t have the money to pay for an appearance. Perhaps they would like to meet some real nerds (I say that lovingly and with pride as I and many of my friends are “nerds”).
So, until April 10, “make it so.”
