Elitist Bastards Sail With a New Swabbie

Posted March 8, 2009

The Carnival of Elitist Bastards X has graciously accepted me aboard, even though my first submission to them, Naughty Elmo, was already published in Skeptic Circle. Although I could find no restrictions in either carnival (I hope I did not miss anything) to “untapped” posts, it was a stupid mistake on my part. I am thrilled, though, because this carnival is tops. Many thanks go to the host, Dana, at En Taquila Es Verdad, for understanding and to PodBlack Cat for suggesting carnivals in the first place.

I love these carnivals because they introduce me to blogs that I might not find otherwise including Vorpal.us, who posted The Fountain of Knowledge, arguing that students would benefit much more from an emphasis on critical thinking than from the emphasis on the accuracy of the information.

However, by far my favorite entry from this carnival was submitted by the Southern Fried Scientist and is titled Getting a Sense of Porpoise. WhySharksMatter complements this with The Ecological Disaster That is Dolphin-Safe Tuna, giving us the facts about this practice and showing once again that sometimes conservation efforts can cause more harm than good.
