Donors Choose: Swag!

Right. We did one hell of a job on the Donors Choose Science Bloggers for Students challenge, my darlings. We held on to an easy third place behind PZ “1 Million Hits a Month Easy” Myers and Phil “I’m a Teevee Star!” Plait. That calls for some kind of award! Oh, hey, I promised you …

Donors Choose: Final Stretch!

Mah Contribution to the Cause

Right. So remember how I said I’d match two $50 donations? And remember how we had two challenges going on, so I kinda figured I’d split my fundage between the two of them? Heh heh heh whoops. Left it too late. We are down to one unfunded challenge, thanks to your awesomeness. So I put …
