I’m on the Twitter…

I’ve broken down and opened a Twitter account. So now you can read some of my (short) jokes, quips, links or whatever, that I don’t deem worthy of blogging about! 

Soooo exciting, I know…

Follow me, NOW! I command you!!!

The Carnival of Evolution #49 is up!

Another month has passed and another Carnival of Evolution(#49) has arrived for your edification. This month it is being hosted by Mousetrap: ecology & evolution footnotes and you NEED to go and absorb ALL the evolutionary knowledge it contains! Fly my minions, fly!!!

[OK, I don’t know where that came from… Maybe too much time spent around P.Z.. But it’s still a good idea!]

The Carnival of Evolution #48 is up and it has been Pharyngulated!

The Squidmiester himself, P-Zed Myers, who inscribes his electronic tome of iniquity (a blog) from atop a throne of humans skulls (a ordinary office chair), ensconced in his deep sea fortress of doom (the University of Minnesota Morris), is hosting the 48th Carnival of Evolution at his retched hive of scum and atheistic villainy, Pharyngula!!! You are not going to want to be late for this one, because the lucky ones will be eaten first!!!

Welcome your new Cephalopod overlord! I think he likes you…

Bwahahahahaha!!!

Praise be to Cthulhu for this invisible line break! Pain in the ass html…

Is that what it takes?

Now I have no illusions about my blog being another Pharyngula or anything but with at least a couple hundred views a day, from around the world, you’d think I’d be getting few more comments.

Where are all the would-be “creation scientists” eager to show me the error of my ways? Here I am writing post after post spanking the heck out of their intellectual leaders and rather than reasoned defenses or even primal screams of rage I get:

Fine, let’s try Chuck & Beans advice:

inteligent design ain’t science!

Now I know this might seem like little more than a blatant cry for attention (which of course it is) but I am honestly curious about the seeming lack of comments around here. Is there a ‘visits per day’ threshold that one has to cross in order to overcome some sort of comment inertia? Has there been any research on this?

Oh, and hat tip to Scott Weitzenhoffer for the cartoon.

The 45th Carnival of Evolution is now available!

And it’s just lousy with bugs! This month the Carnival of Evolution hive is infesting Splendour Awaits, weblog of photographer and amateur insect enthusiast Adrian Thysse.

Creep or crawl your way over there and check out all the invertebrate wonderfulnessness!

Note: The Carnival is trying something a bit new this go around by presenting the article summaries and links in Google Docs – Presentation (a slide show format). If you have any difficulties seeing the slide window, please try another browser (Google Chrome worked best for me).
