2. Oogamy is the greatest-sounding word ever.
3. Tom Lehrer's " Elements" is the biggest thing since the alphabet song.
4. A marriage proposal goes like this: "Darling, I want to take our pair-bonding to the next level."

6. Charles Darwin is your GOD.**
7. You know whether your mom wants dicot or monocot flowering plants for Mother's Day.
8. You know about the gay penguins.
9. You grew up watching Kratt's Creatures and the Discovery Channel.

11. You're convinced your sibling is the missing link. Unfortunately, the rest of the scientific world has yet to agree.
