Considering I have a geology degree, if I don't hit a 10 for the "how interested in science" are you question, I think I've done it wrong...

Also, all of the above for the pop cultural actual scientists! And Beakman of Beakman's World...

I picked archaeology as my favorite social science, but I also would have checked anthro and sociology.

Also, this is probably the first time I've ever picked Ross as a favorite anything.
