As you know, this blog is heading quickly towards its twenty thousand’s comment. Now, I know this is nothing like a million comments, but it is still a good round number in base ten. And we forgot to notice the ten thousandth comment. So we’re celebrating this one.
There will be three awards. This is not a contest, but an award. The person closest to being the 20 thousandth commenter according to my calculations, who has provide an email address while commenting that works so that I can reach them, and who answers my query within a reasonable amount of time, etc. etc. etc. (restrictions apply, not valid in Utah, and so on and so forth) will be awarded with a wonderful Greg Laden’s Blog “I Think” hat:
The second closest identifiable commenter will receive the lovely Darwin is Thinking Coffee Mug:
And the third closest identifiable commenter will receive the consolation prize award:
