A Blog Around The Clock


Every now and then I have some fun and LOL-cat-ize an image from a PLoS ONE paper. See, for instance, LOLdinosaur, LOLtortoise, LOLtasmaniantiger and LOLpterosaur. Folks at the mothership love these. So, if a number of you are up to this I’ll make a Flickr set or Facebook group, or a linkfest. Pick your favourite PLoS papers, grab images, LOLcatize them (here) and send them to me, or give me the links. Ideally, if you post these on your blogs, provide also a link to the paper itself or at least let me know which paper they came from.

This is not what I have in mind, but it is a LOL and a PLoS and a cat….

    Bora – here is a post I wrote last year on eye evolution, using an LOL Cnidarian. It is based on a study published by Todd Oakley in PLoS.

    Thanks. I tested it first on Facebook. Once there are more images, I will make a proper Flickr set.

    Hey Coturnix – when you do, be sure to add them to LOLscience, OK? kthxbai.
