Retrospectacle: A Neuroscience Blog

I’m on Vacation, Jeez!

I’m on vacation, so excuse the lack of posts. Blogging will resume tomorrow!

Even if I wasn’t on vacation, I’m WAY too traumatized by the death of Steve Irwin to post anything.

Most of you may not know this, but I harbored a (not so) secret crush on Mr. Irwin, and now must find an appropriate target to move my third-tier celebrity infatuation to. This is proving hard work.

    I would suggest Matt Gallant, the FORMER host of “The Planet’s Funniest Animals.”

    I just have seven words for you: third hottest science blogger on the internet. Think about it.

    Congrats, Ms. Number One, by the way….

    Holy shit! Who needs real scientific achievements when I can bask in this glory for the rest of my days?

    No shit. Screw grad school. Let’s go on tour.

    I want a medal and a free car.

    I want a medal and a free car.

    How about creepy nerd-lovers with a thing for parrots sending you unsolicited emails? Will that do?

    Man, I don’t even get that….

    Well, Jeff Corwin’s still with us, fortunately. He was definitely the pin-up guy for a whole generation of female grad students in my program.

    Congrats on the hotness index! :), and yes, Matt Gallant is pretty cute. But he didn’t have the same passion that Mr. Irwin had…

    A friend sent me a link to a video with Steve Irwin at Late Night with Conan O’Brien (note the Swedish or Norwegian subtitles).
