Seen the Big Bang Theory? Any other stuff with scientists in them?
Biologists and chemists are kind of cool. Engineers build stuff. Physicists—well…as a physicist you are expected to be socially awkward.
That’s the thing, though. It can be awkward when they think you’re smarter than the rest of the dinner party combined.
They do think that.
But you don’t. Science attracts clever people and dumb people (like me) alike.
It’s for curious people – who end up formatting their blog posts awkwardly.
