For those of you who don’t actually read any other ScienceBlogs (hi, Mom): We’re approaching the one meeeellionth comment here at the ScienceBorg! This means there’s a contest! If you submit a comment with a valid email address between… um, whenever the contest started, and whenever it is that the millionth comment is posted, which is coming up pretty darn quick now… you will be entered to win a trip for two to New York City, including dinner with your favorite ScienceBorgling and other geeky adventures courtesy the Seed Mothership. Here are the official contest rules.
For those of you who do not win, there will still be parties – and yes, that means free beer.
Seattle readers, please let me know if you think you will make it – if we have enough people we get our very own bartender. Non-Seattle readers, there might still be a free booze readerfest near you – check here for information about other parties worldwide.
If you still need to enter the contest, feel free to speculate about the nature of my participation in the institution of marriage. I threw a couple of choice wedding photos below the fold to get you started.
