Nerd Update

Since there is a nerd contest going on at ScienceBlogs I might as well reveal my score:

I am nerdier than 53% of all people. Are you nerdier? Click here to find out!

What does this mean? Your nerdiness is: Somewhat nerdy. I mean face it, you are nerdier than about half the test takers.

Hey, I just might be the least nerdy of all the ScienceBloggers! Wow! Kinda makes a doc feel good about himself, don't it? I might even update my press photo to reflect my new found status as a normal guy...

I don't know how many of my readers saw this, but last week someone decided to have a hotornot contest for the ScienceBloggers. But it was based on pictures placed on technorati, and since I don't have a picture there, I was left out of the field of entries; I'm not the least bit disappointed by…
Back in September Janet at Adventures in Ethics and Science challenged Sciencebloggers to a nerd-off. I didn't take part because I have an inherent sense of fairness. Professionals shouldn't compete with amateurs. So I let it go. But now I want to claim my rightful crown from the usurper. In that…
Today is the day. Today is the day that Seed has decided to launch a revamped version of ScienceBlogs, complete with a spiffy new front page. It's long overdue, as the front page as it was had caused a number of frustrations, not the least of which is that bloggers whose posts are not as frequent…
I would not have believed this would be possible in 2007, and yet, here it is. CBS is bringing to your television, this fall, a series so full of stereotypes, so dazzingly stupid, so ridiculously puerile, that it must surely offend the sensibilities of everyone in science. I am talking about "The…

How can you have such a pathetically low score and call yourself a science blogger? FOR SHAME! :)

I scored a 68, higher than I thought I would, making me a low-ranking nerd. I would have estimated that the score would have been 50-55%. Too bad they don't show what the correct (nerdiest) answers are.

I don't dare post my score over at Respectful Insolence; I'd be banned from ever posting there again.

I scored --> High-Level Nerd. You are definitely MIT material, apply now!!!
