The horror

This has been a long time coming.

Due to an obvious and cheap attempt at cheating, last year PZ Myers won the Best Science Blog of 2006 award. However, I cannot prove he cheated -- and while such a triviality as actual evidence may not stop 99% of the world at large, I am a scientist, and must go with what I can prove.

So PZ won, and I lost a bet with him. Had I won, he would pose for the Skepchick calendar. However, had I lost, I was to sing PZ's praises at the 2007 Amaz!ng Meeting and write a blog entry as well.

I lost, so I did what I had to do as an honorable man. I waited to do the blog entry because I wanted to add the video, and that has finally become available. Here you go:

I think this video embedded here counts toward both aspects of the bet.

I hear PZ posed for the calendar anyway. Sucker.

My great thanks to Rich at JREF for putting the video together for me. You can buy the DVD of TAM 5 here, and the resolution on the DVD is much better than what you see on YouTube. Duh.
