Pharyngula - undeniably addictive
I began reading Pharyngula many moons ago, and lets say it wasn't love at first read. I found many of his statements and opinions to be a bit extreme for my taste, but as time went on I found myself reading it more and more, not just for the shock of what he might say next, but for the scientific content. I guess I was also sold on the unwavering support given to keeping evolution in education and creationism out, an issue that I like so many other scientists take very personally. It's a strangely addictive blog, that you just can't stop reading once you've started. Even if you don't agree with everything PZ writes (which believe me I don't) you can't help but admire the guy for being consistent and keeping all arguments rooted in science. And of course there is always the friday cephalopod to look forward to.
