Pharyngula

Double Molly opportunity!

I was bad. I completely forgot to have Molly nominations for July, and here it is August. So let’s catch up: name your fave commenter for either month right here, or just your favorite for any time, and I’ll tally ’em up when I get back from New York — we’ll have a super-duper double induction ceremony, with both cake and pie.

Comments

  1. #1 thalarctos
    August 16, 2007

    Zeno and Keith Douglas for two months’s worth of nominations, two commentors who’ve been consistently worth reading over a couple of years now–even when I’m too busy to read most comments, I make a point of clicking on their names when they appear in the sidebar.

  2. #2 Tom @Thoughtsic.com

    I vote for a piece of gravel I found in my shoe.

    Realistically, I’ll go with Zeno.

  3. #3 Rey Fox

    Kagehi and Brownian.

  4. #4 Brownian
    August 16, 2007

    I’d like to nominate Owlmirror and Stanton for their fine work sifting through the morass of creationist crap on this thread.

  5. #5 Zeno
    August 16, 2007

    I wish to denounce the piece of gravel in Tom’s shoe. The piece of gravel cannot demonstrate that it is not a foreign object.

    What? No residency requirement?

    Owlmirror, per Brownian.

    Brownian, per moi, for frequent displays of erudition and piquant humor, and for… well, just look!

    Actually, Kseniya, after the other thread, I’m a little scared to.

    !~LOL~!

    Actually, I… uh… I can’t tell you yet. 🙂

    I nominate Jim Lemire. And it will be done. And it will be good.

  10. #10 SimonC
    August 16, 2007

    I’d definitely have to second the nomination for Brownian.

  11. #11 Dahan
    August 16, 2007

    Yet another Brownian fan, consider my vote cast.

  12. #12 Divalent

    I nominate Zeno, for the gem pasted below. I can’t remember where it was, but it was so good I copied it into my own file of great comments.

    “”Once again, and quite earnestly, I declare that there is not enough prayer. I endorse prayer enthusiastically. People who believe in prayer should be down on their knees or prostrate on their prayer rugs invoking the deity and pelting him with their petitions. Why wave “God Hates Fags” picket signs or strap bombs to your vest when you could be praying instead? If the believers would spend more time bothering their gods instead of bothering the rest of us, it would be a much better world. Go pray for me. Knock yourself out.” Posted by: Zeno | July 18, 2007 01:26 AM “

    Zeno gets my vote for June just for that comment (wherever it was).

    Brownian for this month (no rationale as he has several threads with solid comments).

  14. #14 tony
    August 16, 2007

    My vote’s for Brownian.

    And Thalarctos – the othr thread wasn’t so bad (although I *do* go on a bit!)

    I’ll also second ‘Zeno’ – consistently worthwhile.

  15. #15 Loc
    August 16, 2007

    I vote for the boob guy.

    Seriously, Brownian.

  16. #16 Zeno
    August 16, 2007

    I have decided to pray that Brownian is recognized with a well-deserved Molly.

    And since PZ won’t take such a statement seriously, I will also declare that I cast my vote for Brownian.

  17. #17 dorid
    August 16, 2007

    now that my screen is clean…

    Brownian.

  18. #18 Norma
    August 17, 2007

    I cast my vote for the man that helps stop the war in Iraq.
    Who Are You?

  19. #19 Zeno
    August 17, 2007

    Would you vote for a woman who stops the war?

  20. #20 Rev. BigDumbChimp
    August 17, 2007

    Rey Fox and Zeno

  21. #21 seo yaismasi
    August 17, 2007

    Realistically, I’ll go with Zeno.

  22. #22 Scott Hatfield, OM
    August 17, 2007

    I dunno….a Double Molly sounds like it should be on the rocks, or at least served with a swizzle stick.

    I’ll cast a vote for Zeno as well, and here’s part of why I urge you to cast your vote for him.

    On a somewhat less important note, my exchange with noted scientist Vox Day is in full swing, here.

  23. #23 Scholar
    August 17, 2007

    Molly is probably rolling in her grave. How easily we forget the deceased…

    I suggest PZ choose 3 winners for this month, because we were averaging about 1.6 winners per month anyway. Hopefully you won’t use creationist math again…

    now for the votes: caledonian (just kidding)

    well, I keep seeing steve_C coming to the rescue, he has been on the short list for a while now…

    somebody named David Marankovich, even though he once revealed that he might smell european and may in fact be related to tornbjorg gundersson.

    and finally some guy from CALifornia named George probably deserves the 3rd molly this month.

    (I guess Zeno is gonna have to wait…)

  24. #24 Torbjörn Larsson, OM
    August 17, 2007

    So many are worthy. However, I’m not going to keep to the remainder of my last months choice, since a blog develops over time.

    (And let’s face it, Caledonian will probably never be mollified! Especially carrying that big stick. :-P)

    For July:
    RavenT. For wit, erudition, and a husband that scares dogs to pee (and worse).

    For August:
    Zeno. For a persistent part of the Pharyngula phenomenon, pestering the poor paupers of pseudoscientific phantasies, and paradoxically phun physico-math posts.

  26. #26 David Marjanovi?
    August 17, 2007

    somebody named David Marankovich

    Yes! Yes! Great idea, whoever that is. :->

    Can I nominate myself, not for anything I commented on here, but for my comments that lead to Olbermann giving Bill O’Reilly a two-fer Worst Person in the World?

  29. #29 Brownian
    August 17, 2007

    I think that makes you eligible for a Franken*, dhonig.

    *Note: Any award given out to someone because Ann Coulter thinks they’re stupid is a high honour in my books.

  30. #30 Kseniya
    August 17, 2007

    For those playing along at home, the character known as RavenT has recently been revealed to be her evil twin, thalarctos.

  31. #31 Kseniya
    August 17, 2007

    (Perhaps instead of “her evil twin” I should have said “her polar opposite”…?)

  32. #32 dhonig
    August 17, 2007

    Ooooh. A Franken.

  33. #33 Rich
    August 17, 2007

    Tom and Brownian.

  34. #34 Sastra
    August 17, 2007

    Greg Peterson.
    windy.

    Consistently readable and thought provoking.

  35. #35 thalarctos

    Perhaps instead of “her evil twin” I should have said “her polar opposite”…?

    LOL!

    Careful, Kseniya, you might set off an ursine pun war, and that could be a truly grizzly scene…

  36. #36 Paguroidea

    The one and only – CalGeorge!!!!

  37. #37 LisaS

    I always look forward to Monado’s comments.

  38. #38 Monado
    August 17, 2007

    Thanks, LisaS!

    I vote for Zeno and Brownian.

  39. #39 Zeno
    August 17, 2007

    thalarctos: Careful, Kseniya, you might set off an ursine pun war, and that could be a truly grizzly scene…

    And I, for one, could not bear it.

  40. #40 Kristjan Wager

    Oh, Non-God, not a pun war. Make it stop. I get enough of those over at Readerville.

    Zeno and Brownian also gets my votes.

  41. #41 Carlie
    August 18, 2007

    Owlmirror deserves at least an FTD bouquet for fighting the good fight on the Hovind thread.

    I’ll vote for Zeno for a Molly.

  42. #42 Alan Kellogg

    Only on Pharyngula can you see how brownian motion affects a comment thread.
