My Studly Hubby have recently started a competition over who is the nerdiest (except it is reverse, where it is better when the other one is the nerdiest).
So I am going to take this to a public poll:
Who is the nerdiest? (leave your votes in the comments below)
I understand that this is a hard decision, so I have given you some examples to help you decide.
I tried very hard not to be biased (seriously)
The Studly Hubby: Ordered a 4-inch book today on C# and ASP.net programming (and was excited about it!)
Me: Spent about an hour today watching internet videos about bacterial biofuel production and PCR (and was excited about it!)
The Studly Hubby: Checks slashdot.org EVERY DAY
Me: Can't wait to see what bacterial growth curves look like
The Studly Hubby: Sends instant messages to his wife (me) when she's in the next room
Me: Gets unnaturally excited about getting instant messages from her husband (The Studly Hubby) when he's in the next room
The Studly Hubby: Speaks in strange tongues about programming languages and server crashes at the end of the day
Me: Speaks in strange tongues about molecular biology and bacterial physiology at the end of the day
Josie's favorite new song (which can be watched here):
The PCR Song
lyrics as follows:
There was a time when to amplify DNA,
You had to grow tons and tons of tiny cells.
Then along came a guy named Dr. Kary Mullis,
Said you can amplify in vitro just as well.
Just mix your template with a buffer and some primers,
Nucleotides and polymerases, too.
Denaturing, annealing, and extending.
Well it’s amazing what heating and cooling and heating will do.
PCR, when you need to detect mutations.
PCR, when you need to recombine.
PCR, when you need to find out who the daddy is.
PCR, when you need to solve a crime.
