## How Geeks & Nerds Do It

I know that long-standing pop culture tradition states that scientists, academics, and other geeks and nerds don’t have sex very often. This is, however, simply untrue. These folks do it. They just each do it in their own respective ways…

• Astronomers do it in the dark
• Mathematicians do it in numbers
• Biologists do it in the field
• Chemists do it periodically on the table
• Geologists do it in folded beds
• Palaeontologists do it in the dirt
• Computer scientists do it bit by bit
• Electrical engineers do it until it hertz
• Physicists do it with force
• When seismologists do it, the Earth shakes
• Zoologists do it with animals
• Polymer chemists do it in chains
• Cosmologists do it with a bang
• Theorists do it on paper
• Geneticists do it in their genes
• Statisticians do it with 99% confidence
• Planetary scientists do it while gazing at Uranus
• Philosophers only think about doing it
• Quantum Physicists are uncertain about doing it but are sure it will cause multiple entanglements

$Science\;is\;{\sqrt{1+\tan^{2}C}}$

On the bright side, scientists are generally against one night stands; they want repeatable results. On the dark side, they tend to talk about their sexual exploits and partners; it’s part of the peer review process. 😉

NOTE: For those not comfortable with equations, the square root of one plus tan squared C is equal to the square root of sec squared C which is equal to sec C (= sexy).
