In which the recipient can be so passionate about things of a scientific nature, that he/she may appear surly, rude, and/or unpleasant.
Jeez, this badge could be named after me….
Yeah… I think this pretty much defines my on-going love/hate relationship with the Pern fandom, and general hate-on of 90% of the fans.
I have inadvertantly convinced friends to study science in college only for them to find out they hate science later.
The words “Actually, the species name isn’t capitalized.” have come out of my mouth before I could stop them. More than once! What a jerk!
To paraphrase New Scientist & Prof. Dawkins, I think science is interesting, and if you disagree… you can fuck off.
Actually, the specific epithet isn’t capitalized…the first part of the species name is the Genus, and IS capitalized.
I think I just earned Level II. Call me “superjerk.”
At times, I have discussed evolutionary theory with my friends. The discussions typically go like this. Me: This is what it says.” “No it isn’t.” “But this is a direct quotation.” “I don’t care.” “… FFFFFFFFFUUUUUUU”
The conversation typically ends with me saying “I cant talk to you! Go read a book!”
Isn’t this a badge for everyone who’s ever read something that sounds sciencey? Or is smugness and conceit inherent in leaning big words? (Also, this badge is for me if ‘I can be’ is changed to ‘I’m usually’)
It is always the most difficult when speaking to a creationist about evolution. Inevitably, any honest debate becomes pretty savage, where I will end up swearing at the creationist and calling them “irrational”, or “stupid”, or my favourite “retarded”.
“The words “Actually, the species name isn’t capitalized.” have come out of my mouth before I could stop them. More than once! What a jerk!”
That’s weird? It sounds completely natural to me.
“To paraphrase New Scientist & Prof. Dawkins, I think science is interesting, and if you disagree… you can fuck off.”
That’s me as well. I love this badge
