Got this in our Sword and Laser email this morning and it was so amusing to me I thought I'd share it.

Dear Sir/Madam,

It is an honor for us to have a privilege to welcome you as an Exhibitor at International Conference on Laser, Optics and Photonics. The venue of the conference & exhibition is in Paris, France this Aug 23-25, 2018.

This exhibition will surely benefit the visitors who want to be a pioneer in the field of Laser, Optics and Photonics.



I mean.... it's in Paris... should we go? They may be disappointed.

You guys are pioneers in my mind, but probably not in the way they mean.

Do they think you've been doing research on lightsabers perhaps?

Iain Bertram (iain_bertram) | 1268 comments Man, that conference looks dodgy!

Unfortunately it appears you have been invited by a group that only wants one thing from you, and its not your mind.

No not that either, get your mind out of the gutter.

They just want your cold hard cash. $800 for a two day conference !!!!

Stephen Richter (stephenofllongbeach) | 1318 comments Go to the World Con in San Jose. Get a Vendor"s table. Set up a Fundme page for it. More bang for the buck. Seriously S&L needs only 200 nominations to get on the Finalist list for Fancast.
