This New Neighbor Is Game

Dr. Free-Ride has a getting-acquainted exercise for us newbies. My answers are below. You’ll notice I didn’t use that awful word meme; here’s why.


3 reasons you blog about science:
1. To inform scientists and non-scientists about evolution, public health, and microbiology.
2. To taunt creationist morons.
3. Related to #2, if I blog about evolution enough, Jerry Falwell’s head might just explode (it’s a longshot, but worth trying anyway).
Point at which you would stop blogging:
When you pry my keyboard out of my cold, dead hands…
1 thing you frequently blog besides science:
Politics. Lotsa politics.
4 words that describe your blogging style:
1. Slightly deranged
2. Opinionated
3. Snarky
4. Relentless (I’m quite willing to beat a topic to death. For months, if that’s what it takes)
1 aspect of blogging you find difficult:
If I have been thinking too long about a post, I get bored and do not want to actually write the damn thing.
Ooh, look! Shiny pebble!
5 ScienceBlogs blogs that are new to you:
1. Terra Sigillata
2. Dynamics of Cats
3. Retrospectacle
4. Pure Pedantry
5. Framing Science
9 blogs you read outside the ScienceBlogs universe:
1. Gadflyer
2. driftglass
3. Majikthise
4. Shakespeare’s Sister
5. Thoughts from Kansas
6. The News Blog
7. MyDD.com
8. Hullabaloo
9. Pandagon
2 important features of your blogging environment:
1. Music. Loud, obnoxious music.
2. Adequate sleep.
6 items you would bring to a meet-up with the other ScienceBloggers:
1. Geeky T-shirt.
2. A pen.
3. Choclate something.
4. Guinness.
5. A book (you never know…).
6. Laptop.
5 conversations you would have before the end of that meet-up:
Being selfish, all five conversations would result in me being able to see other bloggers’ cool study organisms, fossils, or mechanical gizmos.

  1. Hey Mike! Thanks for noticing me as new – hope I’m good enough to keep you as a reader.

    Hello Mike,
    My question has nothing to do with this article, but only with biology. But I choose to post it here, instead of writing you an e-mail. If I choose the bad solution, I am sorry.
    So, I recently read a book written by a biologist, but I read only a few comment about this book and this kind of view in the science press, so can I ask you what do you think about it ?
    I find an article of this author:
    http://www.pierre-sonigo.org/article.php3?id_article=3

  3. boubou,
    I haven’t read the book.

  4. boubou says:

    yes, of course, but the article I gave is from this book, it’s just to give a general idea
