The Tangled Bank's inaugural post

Pharyngula has just written The Tangled Bank's inaugural post. The Tangled Bank is a version of the "Carnival of the Vanities," wherein a summary of participating bloggers' best recent biology or medicine related posts are highlighted every other week. The Tangled Bank posts will cycle across the various participating host blogs, but Pharyngula has a central page setup at Anyone can participate in this little endeavor regardless of whether they host it or are a biologist or doctor; if you have a good biology or medicine related post, send it on in!

One of my posts was featured in the inaugural edition (thanks Pharyngula!), and Pharyngula has written one of the neatest introductions of myself that I've ever read:
"Rhosgobel: Radagast's home is the weblog of a mysterious, anonymous community college instructor in biology who writes about biology and academic issues. He also has some infatuation with Tolkien, as might be guessed from the name, lives in California, and has a fondness for taunting snowbound Minnesotans with photos of blooming flowers."
So I'm now officially a "man of mystery". How cool! Do I get to dress up in cool suits and go on daring missions?

Oh, and just to make sure that I live up to my reputation:
