Host Scicurious has just posted the 26th edition of the Giant’s Shoulders history of science blog carnival, and wow, it’s a doozy. The “Fools, Frauds, and Failures” theme drew a huge list of contributions in all three categories (including my own piece on Sewall Wright and Linanthus parryae). And Sci introduces it all with a lovely olde-worlde flourish.
Greetinges, all ye who enter here.
Beholde, before you doth appear
A moste unusual carnivale!
And this one hath a grand moral.
This speakes of fools, failures and fraudes.
Those findings no longer we applaude.
I may very well spend the rest of the month until the next edition reading it all.
It’s even more fun to read if you reade the whole thinge like thise. :)
