Canadian Blog Award Voting

Thanks to everyone who voted for this blog in the first round of the Canadian Blog Awards! Elfshot: Sticks and Stones made it into the final 5 in the Science and Technology category, and needs your vote one more time. (or actually, one more time every day until December 19th, would be great!)

Top 10 Reasons to Vote for Elfshot: Sticks and Stones

10) Its been handcrafted to your exact specifications and tested on ballistic gel seals.

9) Available in both Imperial and Metric.

8) Get in on the ground floor. If we have another three years of Stephen Harper funding Science in Canada, then we'll all be using stone tools.

7) If you don't vote the terrorists win.

6) Archaeologists are the Cowboys of Science.

5) If I win I'll be morally obligated to display a cartoon of a flag waving patriotic beaver on my site. Forever. You can view that as a reward or a punishment - whichever gets your vote.

4) Its all I really want for Christmas.

3) If your vote helps Elfshot win, then you haven't wasted two minutes reading a random archaeologist's blog about stone tools - you've been reading The Canadian Blog Award's Top Science and Technology blog, which will totally impress your boss and practically guarantees* a big raise and a corner office. (*not a guarantee)

2) Baculums!

1) 2.5 million years of lithic technology and no Canadian Blog Awards.
