Things We Saw Today: A Nerdy Proposal at GeekGirlCon

Things We Saw Today

We’re major sucker for con proposals. This weekend at Geek Girl Con (which our own Susana and Jill attended), it was Cierra, who proposed to her boyfriend (now fiancé) Gahan. She proposed with a custom Magic: The Gathering “Rings Of Brightearth” card, the bottom of which said “Will you Marry Me?” (When Geeks Wed)

In the study, three volunteers were suddenly blasted with an alarm while sitting in the Chilly Chair, while three heard the alarm without the effects of the Chilly Chair. Fukushima measured all six volunteers’ skin conductance reactions, an electrical property of the skin that’s known to change with fear and surprise. He found that Chilly Chair users showed stronger reactions. Chilly Chair users also rated their own surprise as higher.

These people created a Lost Dharma Initiative-themed nursery for their child, because every parent loves to imagine their child in the middle of a death island. (In all honesty, though, it’s adorable) (Look at This Frakking Geekster)
