I love ERV. *HUGZ FOR BLAGZ!*

We get a lot of weird spam at SciBlogs. Specifically, Turkish spam. Im sure you all have seen one or two that gets through, before we can get around to trashing it– “I did not expect such a topic. Please type this for another topic. Regards to the author.” “Welcome! The long sought such a…

Interview with a pit bull

Howdy! Just want to point you all towards a Q&A I did with an animal blag, ‘Paw Talk‘! Theyve been doing these with lots of science bloggers, and the series has been pretty fun, so Im glad Ive been included! I also think its funny that both Ava and Conspiracy Skeptic picked the same piccie…

The Conspiracy Skeptic & ERV!

Uh oh. Ive dont it again! Enabled teh cranks by talking about HIV-1and HIV Denialism with The Conspiracy Skeptic (scroll down to find the mp3)! I was worried it would come off as too ‘inside’– Conspiracy Skeptic is an ERV reader, so we made some references that newbs might not be familiar with, but then…

ERV V2.1

So Ive been here over a year now. And the whole time, I have had that stupid standard white place-holder banner. *points up* BUT NO MOAR! Kevin Hopkins, an artist with Super-Geek-Street-Cred made me a sweeeeeeeeet banner! Kevin has graciously allowed me to play around with the color on PhotoShop so I can has lots…

Gift to Rhology

Im irritated with Rhology. Same comments/questions on multiple threads = rage. However, in return for standing up for me last Friday, Im making an open thread just for Rho and his crew, and people who would like to ‘debate’ with them. However I am asking in return that you all stop posting O/T comments on…

My favorite SciBling.

PZ provides mentorship. Bora provides eternal encouragement. Nisbet is an endless fountain of lulz. But John Lynch bought me beer, and introduced me to Piers Hale– quite possibly *the* coolest tattooed, pierced, history of science professor on planet earth. Thank you John!!! You survived OK Creationists, tornadoes, and a random gunman… Hope you can come…

I, Robot…You, Jane

I had planned on letting a long rant loose on these assholes. Statler and Waldorf John and George are still bitching about me. ‘Me’ being their magnificently crafted straw-man/ad hominem chimera. But their comments have reached such a fantastic level of meta-fail (and Ive only watched 12 minutes of their second bitch-fest) I cant help…

Exasperating Ignorance

Oh George. I dont blame you for being angry. I attacked your profession, your profession is an extension of you, thus you took my comments personally, and completely missed what the hell I was talking about. 1– I dont know whether she had a bad experience with ‘The Wichita Beacon Journal’*… Someone who lives in…

BACK!!

Wow! Awesome time at the Viral Evolution conference! But now I have a ton of work/blogging to catch up on! First and foremost: I must have had a near-death experience this weekend, or something, cause I was in heaven. Get this– I got to see two gods in abiogenesis, Susanna Manrubia and Valerian Dolja, get…
