Interstellar con job

I don’t remember making this speech, but in my defense I did say they’d wipe my brain.

But the evidence is against this being real. It says:

A seemingly humbled Plait accepted an award and a check from the alliance.

When I fake sincere modesty I’m really good at it, so the writer being suspicious is proof this wasn’t real.

Hat tip to BABlogee, um, Reporter X.
