About GrrlScientist

grrlscientist is the pseudonym of an evolutionary biologist and ornithologist who writes about evolution, ethology, and ecology, especially in birds. After earning a degree in microbiology (thesis focus: virology) and working at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, she earned her PhD in zoology from the University of Washington in Seattle, where she studied the molecular correlates of testosterone and behaviour in white-crowned sparrows. She then worked a Chapman Postdoctoral Fellow at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City, where she studied the speciation and distribution of lories and other parrots throughout the South Pacific Islands. A discarded scientist, she returned to her roots: writing. Formerly hosted by The Guardian (UK), she now writes about science for Forbes and for the non-profit think tank, the Evolution Institute and she writes podcasts for BirdNote Radio. An avid lifelong birder and aviculturist, she lives with a flock of songbirds and parrots somewhere in Germany.

    I can only take on 18. If there’s more than that I’ll hide behind you.

  2. Luna_the_cat says:

    According to that questionnaire, I could take 25. Hah!

  3. greg says:

    27! probably shouldn’t be proud of that.

  4. Tabor says:

    Only 15—but I’ve always been a lover not a fighter.

  5. 6EQUJ5 says:

    My answer is 2. One under each arm. I’m a grownup, we’re here to protect kids, not wage war on them.
    (If I’m not required to move, I could pin down a third child while holding the other two.)

  6. Rhea Miller says:

    25 of those lil twerps had it coming…the rest sent me running for mommy!! *sniff sniff*

  7. JPS says:

    Bring the five-year-olds on! I can take 30.

  8. My result: 31 five-year-olds. Either I kick ass or I’m a very, very, VERY bad person…….

  9. or you are a grade school teacher in NYC!

    The secret to taking a large number of five-year-olds is not to take them on all at once. Move around and manipulate the flow of the fight so that you are only facing one or a few at a time. Do not allow yourself to be mobbed.
