5 HOT SCIENCE-Y GUYS

1. Sir Martin Rees I don’t know if this guy’s straight or gay, and I don’t care. He’s got a certain polished appeal going on, and he’s the freaking Astronomer Royal for crying out loud. What does that mean, you ask? How does that make him any more special than any other astronomer besides the Royal part? Well, look, if I have to explain that, it would mean one of us would have to do some research. And I’m tired. I just got in from a party. But I do know that this guy’s been busy studying multi-universes and I…

HOT SCIENCE-Y GUY OF THE MONTH – JAMES DYSON

– FROM THE ARCHIVE – Presenting: A week of Hot Science-y Guys This month’s Hot Science-y Guy really sucks. Okay, James Dyson doesn’t suck, but his inventions sure as heck do. Just ask my friend, Bob, who recently purchased the Dyson Animal Model No. I-Don’t-Know−Exactly-but-It’s-a-Lovely-Shade-of-Purple. Oooh… a purple vacuum… And boy-oh-boy! I sure would like one of these bad boys for myself. And this time, when I say “bad boy”, I don’t mean that in my usual way (see previous “Sparky” references). I mean I really want one of Mr. Dyson’s vacuums! Vacuuming is something I really like doing in…

HOT SCIENCE-Y GUY OF THE MONTH – NUVIA CRISOL GUERRA

– FROM THE ARCHIVE – Presenting: A week of Hot Science-y Guys Something a little different this time, people. This month’s Hot Science-y Guy of the Month isn’t a guy (as if you need me to tell you that). But she is hot (like en fuego-y and muy caliente hot). And she’s very science-y. So in the words of the beloved rock-icon-named-after-a-comfort food, Meatloaf, two outta three ain’t bad. And when you’re Nuvia Crisol Guerra, that’s the total opposite of bad! Nuvia Crisol Guerra. Okay, that’s just a hot name right there. Nuvia. Nuvia. Like she’s a supermodel or a…

HOT SCIENCE-Y GUY OF THE MONTH – JAY INGRAM

– FROM THE ARCHIVE – Presenting: A week of Hot Science-y Guys Check this out! Canada’s own Jay Ingram’s got the posing-with-the-hand-thing going on! Now, it’s not so rakish a pose as naughty Nikola Tesla (see last Hot Science-y Guy installment), but it’s there, oh yes! So, you know what that means? Jay Ingram is hot, too. Well he is. Seriously. Okay, so maybe not so much in the accompanying photo (which, I confess, I shamelessly snatched from here where [you will surely notice] Jay Ingram is the only science-y guy on the page with his hand in his headshot).…

HOT SCIENCE-Y GUY OF THE MONTH – NIKOLA TESLA

– FROM THE ARCHIVE – Presenting: A week of Hot Science-y Guys His eponymous coils aren’t the only thing that created a buzz and a sizzle! So he’s been dead since 1943. Minor detail. Nikola Tesla was one helluva hot ticket in his time and no doubt he was well aware of it, too. No matter what the fashion of the day, guys just don’t strike a pose like the one in the accompanying photo unless they know they have got it goin’ awwn. Now don’t let that seductive, come-hither stare fool you. He’s not playing coy, no matter what…

HOT SCIENCE-Y GUY OF THE MONTH – KAYSAR RIDHA

– FROM THE ARCHIVE – Presenting: A week of Hot Science-y Guys Aw heck, it’s nearly Labour Day, so let’s just call this lovely man the Hot Science-y Guy of the Summer and be done with it. Now I doubt if he’s going to include that on his updated résumé, but one thing I am willing to bet on is that Kaysar Ridha would prefer not to be remembered as The Guy Who Took His Finger Off the Button on Big Brother 6 TM; therefore I am not even going to mention the fact that he’s the guy who…well, let’s…
