A gallery of the ten worst jobs in science according to Popular Science.A gallery of the ten worst jobs in science according to Popular Science.

If anyone would know which jobs in science are the worst it would have to be Popular Science, right? If you choose to read on you'll learn about all kinds of disparaging work opportunities in the science field from the oceanic snot-diver all the way over to the feces piper. Lovely.

Show off your geek cred proudly with some merit badges of the nerd variety.Show off your geek cred proudly with some merit badges of the nerd variety.

I can see that I qualify for at least three (maybe four) of these merit badges right off the bat but I guess thats to be expected when one owns and operates a site called 'GeekLikeMe'. Fly the proud dork.

Telltale might be porting all of their games over to the Mac in the near future.Telltale might be porting all of their games over to the Mac in the near future.

This is great news for Mac users if this turns out to be true. It's a little annoying to switch over to my Windows partition just to enjoy these games. There are also rumors that we may see Telltale on the iPad as well.

Another fun Photoshop contest/theme from the fine folks at Worth 1000 highlighting what could happen when construction goes horribly wrong. Watch out for that iceberg er, bridge.

Nine of the worst tech movies according to CNN.Nine of the worst tech movies according to CNN.

OK, I can agree with most of the choices on this list but said list could have easily been doubled due to the amount of silly technology that has appeared in movies over the years. Case in point: Independence Day. In which Jeff Goldblum's character manages to hack an alien computer... using Mac OS 9.

The entire video is worth watching just to get to the number three moment on the list (Mega Man 8). Dr. Light sounds a tad inebriated ('foiynd dat meat-e-oy'). Wow.

Daily Grind: Irked

Name: Vin (aka glm fluffer)
How Vin feels today: Irked @ 9:24:00 AM
What Vin really wants today: Work on bug testing skills - continue fixing some annoying GLM bugs that I had thought I were previously fixed.

Music Stuck in Head: 1 vs 100 Theme / Xbox Live
Been playing way too much of this game lately. Thanks Xbox!

Stuff to do today:

  • Add more SEO hooks to all posts, see what the outcome is
  • Fix issues with encoding of pesky characters on comments
  • Remind readers that each and every item on the new GLM can be commented on
  • ...and you can even add a badge to give your comment some uh... flair?
  • Take suggestions for additional badges
