I identify myself as a pre-postmodern logical positivist, acedia-wielding, science-loving but lexically-leaning, concinnity-seeking, progressive nihilist-cum-sanguine (though we all and me especially appear to be totally fucked), insomniac botanist atheist.
I am currently an Associate Professor and chair of Life Sciences at Mt. San Jacinto College in San Jacinto, CA.
I am a botanist.
My areas of concentration include systematics, ethnobotany, evolution, and science (particularly biology and even more particularly plant biology) education.
My name is michael plotkin.
I can be reached at email@example.com.
Meant in the nicest way, I enjoyed reading about your experience at the pharmacy. I've been in similar situations a few times, and certainly emphasize! Welcome to the Wiki. -ES

2012-12-30 19:55:20 nice graph on the pizza page, also thanks for the cleanup... I should make you a wiki award
are you a fan of carnivorous plants? —StevenDaubert
2012-12-30 22:01:58 StevenDaubert: I do appreciate carnivorous plants, though my primary loves among the vegetation are seedless vascular plants (ferns and such) and some odd flowering plants, like the meadowfoams (vernal pool plants), which I did some research on as a student at UCD. Of course, I am loath to play favorites, and my official position is that all plants are absolutely, utterly and unconditionally keen.
Thanks for noticing the graph and editing on the pizza page! I created the graph by way of helping my son with an 8th grade project on pizza. We have been developing a rating system combining qualitative and quantitative assessments. Stay tuned—we will roll it out eventually. —MichaelPlotkin
Mmmm you and my faja should talk shop he loves a good fern... I'm interested in any form of pizza ranking, as long as you have as much fun as the FSI guys did with the project... Daubert
