geeky fun, quizzes, trivia, Valentines
As I mentioned in my 2008 Valentine’s Day post, scientists are the geek’s real heartthrobs. David Friedman put together a great collection of printer-ready Valentines featuring Carl Sagan, Einstein, Marie Curie and many others.
You might also like to check out our former Assistant Editor Alex Howard’s Valentine’s advice for Geeks. It’s also from 2008 but its appeal is timeless. Especially that original Internet Love Song.
Then, check out your Latin Lover quotient with our quiz. Will you be able to say “Veni, vidi, vici?”
We’ve also got a special Valentine’s grammar post about affect vs. effect and amorous cats and a little Valentine’s trivia. Do you know what famous writer composed the first Valentine’s verse?
Some of the comments on the Valentines page are priceless too. I especially liked the guy who said he didn’t think that any of them were likely to help him further his DNA (if ya know what he means).
You never know, though some of us really like geeky guys with a sense of humor. Serious smarts + corny jokes = we heart you.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
