  • Top ten girl geeks

    C|Net released a list of the top 10 girl geeks:

    http://crave.cnet.co.uk/0,39029477,49285435,00.htm

    10. Paris Hilton
    9. Aleks Krotoski
    8. Marie Curie
    7. Lisa Simpson
    6. Mary Shelley
    5. Rosalind Franklin
    4. Daryl Hannah
    3. Grace Hopper
    2. Valentina Tereshkova
    1. Lady Ada Byron

    Am I the only one who thinks this list sucks? Shouldn't Grace Hopper be #1? Why is Lisa Simpson on it (and why isn't Lisa Randall)? Why is Lisa Simpson ranked higher than Marie Curie?

    And finally... WHY THE FUCK IS PARIS HILTON ON IT?

    I think lists are made just to spark arguments. It's like going into the Apple forums to discuss Vista.

    I didn't click the link, but, if I were to guess, I'd say it was because she popularized Blackberries and, to a lesser extent, night-vision cameras.

      Haha.
      Personally I think she makes most of the night-vision camera manufacturers look bad.

        Why did thay say this? Do they want people to make jokes about the Paris Hilton videos on the net?

          bascule is always bothered by things that make him want to wear lingerie.

          That list is all nice, and faddy. I had a nasty joke related to Anne Ramsey, but that wouldn't go over too well with all the politically correct fundamentalists.

            My own personal list would have to include Jeri Ellsworth on it. she's got brains, motivation, and I wouldn't kick her out of bed for eating crackers.

            Hedy Lamarr would make the cut also, since she holds a patent for WWII-era frequency hopping. IIRC, it was done with parts from a player piano, and allowed for 88 frequencies (same number of keys on most pianos).

            Brainy chicks make me feel like a plum exploded in my pants.

                    Maybe there are so few girl geeks that Paris Hilton is indeed #10 on the list. #11 would be Elizabeth Taylor.

                      The author of that list cannot possibly expect to have it's reader's take the list seriously. Paris Hilton, does not condorn respect regarding intelligence. Lisa Simpson is a fictional character. Maybe perhap's Ada Byron has a place in tha list, based upon the defintion of the term 'geek' keeping this in mind.

                        Paris Hilton is considered one of us now? Crap, I guess I'll either have to find a different subculture to join or shoot myself.

                              Paris Hilton leaves too many ports exposed to qualify for here.
