I'm not sure how "carnival" became chosen to describe a collection of self-submitted blog posts. Seems like "pot luck" would be a more accurate description. Nevertheless, get your favorite science posts ready for the next Tangled Bank, to be hosted at JasmineCola. The deadline is tomorrow (Weds), so don't delay; submit your entries to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tangled Bank is by now practically an old-timer as these things go. A newcomer on the block is the Carnival of the Godless, to be hosted for the first time at Unscrewing the Inscrutable. They are looking for posts about religion/philosophy/atheism "from a godless perspective," although you yourself don't have to be godless. The deadline is Friday the 28th, so submit to email@example.com if you have something godless to say.
Finally, check out the latest Carnival of the Commies over at TigerHawk. A righty takes a deep breath and surveys the lefty blogosphere. Jack does a good job, and is susceptible to flattery. Preposterous gets a mention for our lament about the decision not to service the Hubble Space Telescope; to be sure, the decision would have been equally lamentable if it had been made by a liberal, and I would think many conservatives are just as disappointed as I am.
Update: Tangled Bank is here.
