One Million Hits

By the time you read this DSN* will have reached 1,000,000 total hits.  Bwahahahahaha…1 million hits.  If every one of those hits were a foot long they would wrap around the Earth 7.6 times.  If every one weighed a pound they would be heavier than 17 RMS Titanics.  If every one was an acre of land we would could own 3 Antarcticas.  Makes one want to light something on fire and sing Kumbaya.

There is only one thing left to do now.  Peter, Kevin, and I want to thank you all for your continued interest and reading.  Don’t be a lurker and let us know who you are in the comments.

And speaking of singing Kumbaya and setting fire to something, don’t forget to join us tomorrow night at 9pm sharp at Tonic in San Fran Cheezy.  Don’t forget to bring your lighter.

*including both our current and former homes.

He has participated in and led dozens of oceanographic expeditions taken him to the Antarctic and the most remote regions of the Pacific and Atlantic. Craig’s research focuses on how energy drives the biology of marine invertebrates from individuals to ecosystems, specifically, seeking to uncover how organisms are adapted to different levels of carbon availability, i.e. food, and how this determines the kinds and number of species in different parts of the oceans. Additionally, Craig is obsessed with the size of things. Sometimes this translated into actually scientific research. Craig’s research has been featured on National Public Radio, Discovery Channel, Fox News, National Geographic and ABC News. In addition to his scientific research, Craig also advocates the need for scientists to connect with the public and is the founder and chief editor of the acclaimed Deep-Sea News (, a popular ocean-themed blog that has won numerous awards.

  1. Hey guys. I’m a noob to your site. Love the content. I’m in the fourth year of my BSc in aquaculture up in Canada, eh. lol

    Nice to see what else is out there in related fields :) Thanks for the great website

  2. I only recently stumbled across this blog, myself. I’m a marine aquarium enthusiast and have been known to run the occasional subaqueous D&D game. ;)
