Here's a question:

If there was an awards ceremony, like the Oscars, but for Mad Scientists, what would some of the awards be?

The top 3 awards would probably be the Maddest Scientist of the Year award, followed by the Most Evil Madsci award and the Best Madsci Overall award...

...but what would be all the rest?

Dude, as you can see from his postcount of almost 15000, he's the top poster here. You're going to run into him more or less on a day-to-day basis.

Of course, you must realize that I'd win this award every year--or at least be in the running. One of the subtle joys of being able to laugh like a demon. :D

We can't forget the entertaining side of mad scientists can we?

No no no no... not Oscars... Nobel Prizes. In reality, not fantasy-land: The Nobel board should arrange a new prize for mad scientists, because, well, I don't think there are enough of them (and we can't include schizophrenics like poor ol' John Forbes Nash . . . I'm talking real mad scientists... mad, I tell you! Mad!!!

In case you're wondering, I am a regular in a collaborative forum story called The Mad Scientist Wars. It's starting a new storyline, which will end with the traditional giant battle at the Mad Scientist of the Year awards.

Well, if they can get past me (handling the security) and a whole swarm of nanobots, that is.

Anyway, I get to choose the awards, so...

No! No no no! I'm talking real life, here! Real mad science! Let's start in the area of gene alteration... I'm sure there's plenty of crazy stuff those scientists can do! Or plastic surgery -- the plastic surgery field is exploding (so to speak) because of the money... we already have a growing number of people doing crazy, interesting things to their body... probably most people here are familiar with the cat guy. Let's hear about some truly insane plasticsurgifications. The maddest plastic surgeon, if you like, or the maddest gene alteration... why don't we start encouraging our scientists to create crazy new species?

Wow... did I just bend this subject around into Geneforge?

Sometimes, I amaze myself.

Maybe. It can still make for an inreresting discussion, though.
