Even though Homeland Security is not happy about this, I am rather pleased about this discovery. How about you?

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.

  1. Jason Failes says:

    Fun idea, but not particularly well quantified.
    It would do better with a few precise questions about height, weight, BMI, and whatever else genuinely factors in rather than all that subjective somewhat/average/mostly stuff.
    But, again, fun, assuming I didn’t just ruin it for everybody else.

  2. Bob O'H says:

    Only 42%. I’ll hide behind you.

  3. Pierce R. Butler says:

    Is that figure in the upper right corner supposed to be a radar dish or an archer?
    Or maybe it’s a dinosaur footprint?

  4. llewelly says:

    I got 36%
    And that figure in the upper-right is obviously a soldier preparing to fire a wide-angle sonic destruction cannon.

  5. HP says:

    58%, which ain’t too shabby.
    But bear in mind, I’m a logistical nightmare.

  6. Nick says:

    I guess you all will have to hide behind me.

  7. Stephenk says:

    I’m a 36er as well.
    Given averagish height and weight I must be cr*p in the other criteria. Which is probably a good thing.

  8. Damien says:

    Once again, American laziness FTW.
    80%. You can all hide behind me.
