your perfect major + penguinsSince the last time i posted a quiz everyone had so much fun, here's another one i found via scientist, interrupted. i don't know about anyone else, but my college major choices were between anthropology, geology, and ecology and evolutionary biology. apparently, what i chose (eeb) was spot on, according to this quiz. that 92% for dance however, is bullshit. did the quiz correctly predict your major?
| You scored as Biology. You should be a Biology major! You are passionate about the sciences, and you enjoy studying cell growth and evolutionary concepts which enable living organisms to survive. Pursue that!|
What is your Perfect Major?

oh, and one more thing. apparently the universe was created by committee.
“Biodiversity is the primary stumbling block,” said Dr. Pootle. “Whoever created this cacophony of species would have had to be infinitely powerful and infinitely creative, but also infinitely schizophrenic to come up with the myriad different solutions to identical problems that the creators of the universe have. Either that, or we’re looking at a different kind of process altogether.”
“If you’re one guy designing a universe, why come up with twenty different ways of tackling the same issue?” Pootle said. “If you’re omnipotent, presumably you know perfectly well whatever the one solution is that will work best, and you go with that. The fact that the world obviously doesn’t work that way is what led us first to the committee theory. The plants and animals that inhabit the Earth show the kinds of random and incoherent thinking that can only otherwise be found in the products of design committees where there’s a lot of CYA and turf protection going on.”
“At the moment our thinking is that there is at least one committee of at least five omnipotent entities for every individual species on the planet, with little or no work-sharing or information exchange between different committees and often little internal cooperation. It’s one holy rigid mother of a dysfunctional bureaucracy. Extremely simple and poorly designed species, like an amoeba, for example, probably have committees of at least two dozen designers. They’re typical examples of the kind of work that gets produced when no one is capable of either making an independent decision or talking to the guy in the next cubicle. Same goes for penguins.”
biodiversity = bureaucracy
i love it.
