If you love science and don’t know how to show it, there are a few sites out there that’ll be more than willing to help you out. Here are a couple of examples:
At Support Our Scientists, you can buy a magnetic ribbon to show your support wherever you drive. It looks a bit like one of those “Support Our Troops” magnetic ribbons, but it’s a little more attractive–sporting the shape of a DNA double helix–and a lot less Orwellian. Hey, if I were back in car-happy America, I’d probably rock one of those.
On the other hand, if you’re looking for something to decorate yourself with, I Believe in Science is selling Tree of Life shirts. “The tree sprouts from the dot in the letter i, which is meant to represent the idea of the single common ancestor. Arrows and leaves signify continuing evolution and growth, and the statement ‘I believe in science’ makes a firm declaration without openly bashing those with opposing viewpoints on the origins of life.” Yep, I can respect that.
I’d be even more enthusiastic about these products if I knew the proceeds were going to a good (science-related) cause. But, what the hell, they’re cool anyway.
