Of course it didn't. This is how you two decided whether or not you should even bother dating, right?

No, I'm pretty sure we talked about collectible card games and boardgaming on our first date.

But I effectively did Punnett squares in my head as a child of 7 or so, trying to figure out my parents genetics from what my sister and I looked like. Does that make me a geek?

No.

It is just a small part of what makes you a geek.

No.

It is just a small part of what makes you a geek biologist.

Yes, but then are not overlapping circles if one were to Venn diagram biologist and geek. The thing that she refers to is more of a biology thing and less of a geek thing.

And really, if I were to Venn diagram this, I would do one large circle, label it geek, and then place a smaller circle labeled biologists inside as a subset.

Since not all geeks are biologists, but all biologists are indeed, geeks.

There's a flaw. Most biologists are geeks, but not all. Case in point: everyone who works in my lab except for me.

Yeah, this is a weird lab. Almost everyone who worked my my previous lab was a geek.

Wait you mean you charlatans can figure out if Rachel and my children will be tall or short?

I was curious because my Dad never cracked 6 ft (5'11") his father however was 6'1". I of course am 5'9" because my father married my short 5'2" Irish Lass of a Mum. I in turn of course married the short German Rachel 5'3". So will our kids get my grandfathers genes? BTW her Dad and Grands are short too.

They must be ninja geeks, and they are just hiding the depths of their geekness from you. ninja

If a girl, 5 feet 3.5 inches.
If a boy, 5 feet 8.5 inches.

That's my official call. Of course, this wouldn't have anything to do with it: http://pediatrics.about.com/cs/usefultools/l/bl_height_pred....

And remember, the first child often exceeds his potential, but later children often don't. Most likely because with the first child, the mom is devoting more resources of every type, and with subsequent kids, her resources are divided.

(Our son is likely to be 6 feet 2 inches, and by the growth charts, he's on target. Being tall isn't all it's cracked up to be. Finding clothes, for instance. And people calling you "tall girl" and crap.)

Amy is forgetting the notable exception, but her current lab is markedly ungeeky.

Her previous lab is where she met me, and that was a geek haven. Science all day; Starcraft, Magic, and D&D all night. I missed so much sleep as a grad student. snore snore snore

That and you always have to deal with stupid questions.

Oh you are tall you must play volleyball/basketball/etc.

Just cause I am tall and beautiful does not mean I am tall and graceful and coordinated.

I think my family must be weird, or I am misunderstanding you I am the oldest of 10 kids, 6 of which are boys. I am also the shortest of the boys at 6'1". The TALLEST boy is the second-to-last, he's nearly 6'8" or so.

I must have gotten the shaft in the growth department. Not that I mind, but I do know what you mean about the "sucks to be tall" - especially tall and skinny. Not that I'm HUGE, but it seems the stores think most people who are tall are also "bulky", and so growing up it was often hard to find something long enough that wasn't baggy as all get out.
