Another #cvg2012 write-up

Jeez, what kind of blogger is that Daniel Fincke? It took him a whole week to write up his recap. Of course, that he mentions every single person he met might explain that.

(Also, the price of buying him dinner one night was that he was supposed to peddle stories about my satanic nature, my vicious emotional outbursts, and my kitten-torturing, but nooooo…he screwed me over there, again!)


And here’s another…and one in which my glorious hat, far better than any mere pope hat, is revealed.

Yes, I had a throne, too.

    the price of buying him dinner one night

    You are a tenured Associate Professor while Dr. Fincke is a mere adjunct. Of course you should be buying him dinner.

    He’s a philosopher. He has to wring every possible nuance out of his experience. Nietzsche would approve.

    Gee – who does that remind me of? Years ago there was a commenter who appeared on numerous blogs around the net and he’d always go on about how he knows everyone who is even vaguely famous. I can’t even remember a name now, but I’m glad he’s blocked by anyone half-decent.

    You clearly don’t understand how this racket works.

    What is that thing doing to your brain? Or is that the explanation for how you read so fast and write so much?

    Did this commenter happen to go to an apparently wellknown highschool in New York and did he take English from a famous author?

    Was his name ****?

    Ah, Kw*k.

    I haven’t been reading Pharyngula long enough to remember him… but I’ve heard stories…and read Pharyngula Wiki.

    I take it he’s the Voldemort of trolls. A troll so idiotic his name can’t even be typed. A troll so legendary other trolls strive to reach his level of bumptiousness.

    Or am I being overdramatic?

    Kw*k is notorious for googling his name. The asterisk is not because we’re afraid of him but rather to reduce the number of google hits.

    Oh… the squid hat.

    I, as one of those weird people who make odd items for fun (medieval hats being one arm of that weirdness), feel it may be my duty to design and create a PZ Poopyhead Pope Hat. Cephalopope themed.

    Would it be completely weird to ask for a head circumference measurement once I’ve drawn out a few designs? :P
