LOL. Had you received the drink? Did you bow your head?
I’ll provide you with a tiger-cub to pet for eternity if you keep that cover.
Congrats! I bet that’s a load off your shoulders.
I loved WEIT, I’m sure your next one will be entertaining & informative as always.
Break out the vuvuzelas!
Oh, dear lord no.
What, isn’t that what footie fans do to celebrate?
It must be an aquired taste. Some of the games from ’10 were an audible nightmare…I seldom use the mute button during matches, but it almost became a reflex during that world cup. :-)
They gave out vuvuzelas at a Marlins game just after the ’10 Cup. It was a disaster. I thought Dan Uggla was gonna walk off the field. I saw a little girl grab one out of her brother’s hands and hit him over the head with it.
LOL. I can relate to that poor girl.
+ a very large number
+ a gazillion. Those things drive me crazy.
… so, they worked as intended?
Srsly ; have you never considered how the bagpipes were counted as a weapon?
Have you seen what Scotsmen eat? I figured if they could eat that stuff, they probably liked the bagpipes.
Haggis as a weapon of (gastronomic) warfare? Now there’s an idea for dealing with cheese-eating surrender monkeys.
See your haggis and raise you a serving of Hákarl.
cheese-eating surrender monkeys
I didn’t know The Chimp liked cheese. Well, maybe cheese-like plastic substances with only minimal acute toxicity. And that’s before we get into the cladistic debate over whether apes are or aren’t also monkeys….
Congratulations, Dr Coyne !
D.E.E.E.E.P. breaths: Rinse and Repeat !
Completely, or just the first draft? And is that really the cover?
That’s obviously not the real cover.
Congrats! Always a great moment. Try not to get too hammered tonight.
oh, and sub
I just checked Amazon. The Kindle version isn’t out yet. 😊
Nor pdfs of bit torrent. :)
A PDF should be easily available from the draft. I think Jerry could find many willing proof readers here. 😁
PDFs of Martin Brasier’s last (or last-but-one ) book were online before my ink-on-paper copy reached me from Amazon. Scanned and OCR’d too – quite a good job, technically.
Congrats to Professor Ceiling Cat!
Is it an evolutionary bio book?
A new atheist book?
(Did I miss something about it in recent blog posts?)
PCC mentions the writing of a book frequently but I think it’s been a long while since he mentioned just what it is about. Whether it’s “about” biology or atheism is a matter of interpretation, with “yes and no” being as valid a guess as any.
I hope it contains the best argument for d¤g.
Can we at least know the title?
Woohoo! Well done.
Magnum opus redux. Here’s to the speciation of your oeuvre!
I want to get my degree changed so it reads “This degree has been conferred to Robert James Douglas, who haz learnings.”
Congratulations, looking forward to it!
Congratulations! I am dying to know what it is about!
Congratulations! I look forward to reading it.
And I went unto the angel, and said unto him, Give me the little book. And he said unto me, Take it, and eat it up; and it shall make thy belly bitter, but it shall be in thy mouth sweet as honey.
Woohoo! Can you convince your publisher to keep that cover?
It’s about Cowboy boots, right?
A lone hep cat (with no name) in cowboy boots who cleans up a town ground down by rival gangs of Sophisticated Theologists™: A Fistful of Scholars.
What role would the squirrels play?
They’d help the cat-with-no-name cross the road safely…
I suppose it should’ve been “Pawful”…
Whoo-hoo, well done and time to open a great bottle of wine!
Goodness. What will be done with all that free time?
Congratulations! Excited to see the finished product.
Can’t wait to get it. Are you coming to Seattle, WA for any book signings!
Maybe the cover will become an inset ;)
That’s for the special edition which you can win in the various contests to come ;)
Well done and congrats for finishing your œuvre.
I’m sure your boots are quite happy that you got that weight off your shoulders ;)
Yay! Yes, come to Seattle area!
D.E.E.E.E.P. – breath ! Rinse and repeat !
And, too, you are now freed up for as many ballgames this summer season —- as you wish, not ?! Y.E.A.H. !
Heartiest congratulations, Jerry! This calls for celebrations among all your friends and readers. I’ll go raise a glass to you.
Hear ! Hear, Professor !
Tipping, right now in recognition thereof, a shot o’ Templeton Rye !
[ That OTHER Templeton. For sure !
LOL I read that as “heartless” at first. Now, I think I’ll use it & see if people notice. :)
Giggle… Of course, that might work better after we’ve made a bunch of toasts to PCC. ;)
Hooray!!! Thanks for sharing the trip.
Congrats !! Is you new website going to be called whyreligionisnotcompatiblewithscience ?
Congratulations! I look forward to buying it, and reading it at my earliest opportunity. Whatever it is about! Actually, I think I know.
Congratulations. I hope you are now selecting restaurants for you book signing tour.
your – aaaaagh
I know it’s still kinda early, but any postpartum stirrings yet?
Fantastic! Looking forward to reading it.
And this post’s TITLE of yours, Professor, ’politely’ mimics re ‘the job’ which ‘d been at hand … … thus of the christians’ biblette, not ? ! john 19:28 – 30 … …
28 After this, Jesus knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, saith, I thirst.
29 Now there was set a vessel full of vinegar: and they filled a spunge with vinegar, and put it upon hyssop, and put it to his mouth.
30 When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, … … IT IS FINISHED: … … and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.
Vinegar ? Vino, instead ? Quite so, of course ! for such a final thirst upon its completion !
Please, though, noooo need for allya’all to be ‘giving up’ any other ghosts nor … … ‘spirit’s ! ‘Tis time to boogie on down to the ball field, instead !
Congratulations! Looking forward to reading “Lolcats Can Has Evoluusjun”!
Wonderful news – and you are a wonder!
Oh great. Now my backlogged reading list just got longer. :-)
Its on top of my projected reading list.
Congratulations! Can’t wait to read it. Hope it’s full of cat pictures (some info on evolution would be nice, too). I’ve really enjoyed your posts :) Thanks!
Late to the post, but not too late to partake of the toasts.
Congrats! What an accomplishment!
Well bloody done!
Congratulations. I look forward to reading it.
Wonderful! It is nice when a project finally comes together.
