David - back to Square One!

Lucky David!
He was trailing way behind - but the numbers of his competitors were just to good to be true and it turns out that there have been some shenanigans going on at the Blogging Scholarship contest.
Trust the ingeniousness of blogging students and their fan base!

Long story short, everything has been set to zero.
The voting period has been extended by one week to November 30th and you can now vote once every day.
The new voting page is here.

And, there's good news for us, too!
In exchange for our support, David has now declared that if he wins, he will use part of the money to support his lab's ongoing shark conservation research, including adopting a satellite tagged shark in the name of the blog's readers and holding a contest to name it.
And if that were not motivation enough, Andrew the Southern Fried Scientist has announced the he will post an increasingly embarrassing picture of David for every day that he leading in the vote count - and I hear that there are many!

Please cast your vote for David.
