You love us, I know. You want to David Shiffman win a $10,000 scholarship to help fund his education. But clicking a link, then clicking a radio button, then clicking another link is a commitment. It requires work. You deserve to be rewarded for you efforts and I’m happy to oblige.
You see, I’ve know David for a long time. We were college roommates, a ground-breaking (pun intended) rock climbing team, dive buddies; we’ve co-authored papers together, coordinated local, national, and international marine education campaigns, and co-blogged (along with the incomparable Amy Freitag) at Southern Fried Science for what will soon be our 3rd year; I’ve spent hours training him to correctly use a well-placed semi-colon for comedic effect. Which is a long way of saying I have many, many embarrassing pictures of David Shiffman that I’m almost certain should never see the light of day.
So here’s the deal. David is currently in the lead. We want it to stay that way. We want you to want it to stay that way. For every day that David is in first place, I will free a picture from the archives, in increasing increments of hilarity. If he wins… well, we’ll cross that bridge when we come to it.
