About the Event
Skeptics on the Fringe presents: Brian Eggo, Evil Overlord of Glasgow Skeptics - Sportsball-ocks
As the rewards of fame & fortune increase, so does the dedication and desperation of those in the sporting world who will do whatever it takes to win. Science is playing an ever-increasing role in the march towards maximising our athletic prowess. Unfortunately, wherever science goes, quackery is never far behind. In this talk we will take a light-hearted look at some of the preposterous products and procedures that have infiltrated the world of sports & fitness. Some lucky audience members may even get the chance to have their performance 'enhanced'.
Brian is the main organiser and primary mouthpiece of Glasgow Skeptics. As such, he has an unhealthy interest in the equally amusing and frustrating realms pseudoscience & quackery. As the son of a PE teacher, he has been indoctrinated to have a deep love of sports & fitness, and has achieved mediocrity in a wide variety of sporting pursuits.
