    Geek Girls: Revenge of the Nerdettes | Newsweek Culture | Newsweek.com

    I'm really impressed that they're taking charge and trying to be more positive role models in comparison to the wasteland otherwise known as Hollywood. My problem is with the pushing of their looks. I understand they may reach a wider audience just by being attractive, but should they promote 'Barbie' mentality with brains?

    This is just social branding, no different than any other persona; they don't get extra points because they're intelligent. The emphasis on looks makes them no better than the "wasteland".

    I think nerd exploitation is fantastic. I always dreamed that Louis Skolnick was my hot nerd boyfriend.

    Oh, and both pictures feature the same chicken, pre and post death that is. :/

    (Ironically, the "civil" engineer was the one who actually killed the chicken.)

    90% of all engineers are dorks.

    I know this and have the degree to prove it.

    Thankfully, I got out.

    One of Pink's robotics teachers was a Naval engineer - he read all of his students the riot act by informing them that if any one of them started to smell bad and ignore other human beings, he wouldn't acknowledge them from that moment forward.
