  1. Should add e-mail. You could be like PZ Myers and have posts about crazy e-mails you get.

  2. I’d say Prof. Myers might have slightly more controversial material on his site.

  3. I’m sure you’re going saying something controversial eventually.

  4. Cool site. Cool job. Cool life. Like so many, I’d love to travel like you. There’s always the hope that someday I will.

  5. What you’re doing is so awesome! I’d love to be in your shoes.
