INTERESTING THING #14: 50 Cent dubbed over video of Mormons trying to get deaf people not to masturbate. 

(This is from my weekend game. Every $40 that “Revival of the Sickest" raised = something interesting from me. I have a couple more to get through from the weekend backers. Stretch goals for the piece are coming!)

Interesting Things Post #3:
Okay, so maybe not hugely interesting to you, but there are data on that poster and that’s interesting to me.  Anyway, here I am with my lab’s beautiful poster in an invited poster session at the 2010 annual meeting of the Ecological Society of America. I’d flown there straight from Costa Rica, where I’d been doing some bat stuff (hence the crazy fieldwork tan).
Also notable: This is some rare ass footage of my natural hair color.

Interesting Things Post #2!Fieldwork, 2008. I’d just been wading up to my thighs in the flooded roadside to my right. Heat index was definitely over 100 F that day. And goddamn, I fucking love those metal clipboards.

$40 raised = interesting thing post, #1
Because there are few things as intimate — or revealing — as peeping inside someone else’s books.
(I think these notes are from 2005? Apologies for the weird scan, I just grabbed it from the shelf and slapped it on the scanner.)

LET’S PLAY A GAME

Hello, you glorious weirdos!

Welcome to this weekend’s game. (Yeah, I know I said on twitter that I was just going to do it tonight, but fuck it, let’s let Sunday play too.)

THE RULES: For every $40 that gets thrown at my beloved and weird project, Revival of the Sickest, I will post something… interesting. Could be dead things in my house, highlighted passages from my bookshelf, weird science, butts, and other general Leigh-type goodies.

ABOUT THE PROJECT: “Revival of the Sickest" is a four-part series on diseases of yore that are making a comeback. It will be gruesome, scientifically precise, and fucking enjoyable.

Because fuck your science textbook’s unreadable bilge.

And a huge thank you, as ever, to everyone who has supported me in this endeavor thus far. Seriously, you guys are the fucking best and I just want to give you the factually accurate science journalism of your favorite nightmares. 

LET THE GAMES BEGIN!

With gratitude,

Leigh
