Molly slowly emerging from the chronosynclastic infundibulum

We’re getting there. The nominations for August have been tallied, and the Molly goes to…


Next, September. You can remember back to September, can’t you? (I don’t think I can).

    Congratulations to Amphiox!
    Did anything exciting happen in September?

  2. 2

    Chronosynclastic infundibulum!

    My copy of The Sirens of Titan is on a shelf about two feet to my right. Win!

    Congratulations, Amphiox. Your invitation to the monthly OM baby roast and orgy is being lost in the mail as I write this.

    For September I nominate Jafafahots because he’s intelligent, witty, and something else that I forget AND A. Noyd for decisive, astute writing on numerous topics.

  4. 4

    Congrats to amphiox.

    My votes go to Rey Fox and Rorschach.

    Congratulations to Amphiox. I’ll add a couple of days aging to your next grog.

    Let’s see, my lists say *looks at pile of paper where lists are* nothing at the moment. I’ll get back later, after the shredder makes confetti of the junk.

    “chronosynclastic infundibulum”

    Is that the whole of Morris, or just the campus?

    Oh yeah, with all those feckin’ churches, it’s gotta be the whole of Morris.

    For September,

    Stephen Wells

    (I can’t remember if any of them commented here in September specifically, but those are my general choices.)

    Congrats, Amphiox!

  9. 9

    Congratulations to amphiox (and to Brother Ogvorbis for July!)

    For September: Rey Fox, consciousness razor and Dianne

  10. 10

    Congratulations, Amphiox, and my vote for September goes to Louis.

  11. 11

    Fantabulistic Amphiox!
    I don’t know who to vote for. Can I vote for Erin Breda’s “Why I’m an Atheist”?

  12. 12

    Congratulations, Amphiox!

    I’ll repeat myself from the last noms:

    Jafafahots, who has been ignored much too long and always has sharp, insightful comments.

    A. Noyd, who writes with clarity, incisiveness and patience.

    Louis, who goes above and beyond when communicating with peoples and always provides amusement.

  13. 13

    So well-deserved, Amphiox! It makes a September vote much easier since there were two names with many check marks on my list. Now that you’ve been mollified, my choice is clear.

    Here, then, is a ballot marked A. Noyd.

  14. 14

    Grats, Amphiox. Very well deserved.

    Louis and Diane are my choices for September.

    You know, Jerry Garcia owned the movie rights to Sirens of Titan. Supposedly there’s a draft screenplay he did with Terry Southern.
    There’s a project I’d like to see.

    drewl, Mental Toss Flycoon

    Congrats Amphiox!

    I’d be happy with any of the noms upthread, but I’ll vote Dianne for some serious heavy lifting and sweet fact smackdowns.

    Also Chas @ 16, I’m now very curious about that project. More for JG, but also TS. Thanks for the tangent!

    I trap the neigbors’ cats. Their meat is gamy, and a bit stringy, gets caught between the teeth, but I am able to digest their cat souls, and project the mighty pussy at my job, wandering around, pretending to do something, and laughing at the mice.

  20. 20

    This is where I learned about the “chronosynclastic infundibulum”. I wish I could find the entire movie. It’s hilarious, and weird satire…you know Vonnegut. and it even has Bob and Ray the funniest news team ever!

    Ogvorbis: Still failing at being human.

    Congrats, Amphiox.

    I hereby third (or foruth, fitfh, or whatever) Louis. Xe has shoen remarkeable patience dealing with willfully obtuse trolls, semitrolls, demitrolls and learning noobies. It alwasys amazes me just how well treating someone seriously can either enrage or engage. Well done, Louis.

    Ye yee! Conga-rats to amphiox.

    For september I nominate Louis. His posts always make me want ask “What are you on, and can I get some?”.

    Congratulations to Amphiox, and for September, Louis and Rey Fox.

  24. 24
    Antiochus Epiphanes


    Rohrschach and Rey Fox

    Ogvorbis, Temorarily Disconnected From My Computer And Can't Sigh In

    And I just reread my #21 and ask that the powers-that-be do not judge my nomination based on my homages to Tpyos.

    Congratulations, Amphiox!
    I second A.Noyd

    …um… people… he’s a lowercase amphiox.

    I can’t remember September at all and have probably missed many of the threads you’re talking about.

    …um… people… he’s a lowercase amphiox.

    Um, David, some of us capitalize proper names because it’s proper and the way most of us were taught.

    Um, David, some of us capitalize proper names because it’s proper and the way most of us were taught.

    So you’re taught to go against the wishes of the wearer? Do you call them Christian names, too?

    Proper names are capitalised, if people want them capitalised. Personally I think bell hooks is a wanker for insisting on doing it off the Internet, but as a nym I don’t mind.

    Anyway, congrats to OMphiox.


    And for October: oniongirl (no capital) and Muse, the lesbian (no capital) lovers.

  30. 30

    Congrats to amphiox! I’ll renom Rorschach for consistent awesomeness and Louis for being hilarious.

  31. 31

    Well deserved Molly for amphiox. Congrats!

    For September:

    consciousness razor

    A. Noyd

    Sastra: Do you still have my e-mail? Could you send me that pic…you know the one that PZ took, but is not in? (Thanks, Squidly OL). Thanks


  33. 33
    Muse (evidently temptress of Pharyngula women)

    I’m for Dianne and Louis

  34. 34

    Dianne and Louis for me too. Dianne is fierce and articulate, Louis is patient and ever ready to lie in wait until he can skewer some absurdity.

    Chalk up another poster most impressed by Louis (very strong efforts by others such as Muse and Dianne notwithstanding).
