* Paul Krugman, who received the Bank of Sweden Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel (it is technically not a Nobel Prize) in 2008. It is not unusual for those with a Ph.D. to be nerds but he deserves a special mention. Reasons: 1) His interest in economics began when he read Creator/IsaacAsimov's ''{{Foundation}}'' books. He wanted to, just as in the book, be one of the social scientists "who understand the true dynamics save civilization". Since psychohistory does not exist, he turned to the closest thing, economics. 2) He posted [[http://krugman.blogs.nytimes.com/2008/12/09/limited-posting-for-the-next-few-days/ this]] [[WebOriginal/LOLCats LOLcat]] on his blog upon leaving for Sweden to get his Nobel prize. 3) [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YuRabL3lFPg This]] video. 4) To cheer himself up he once wrote [[http://krugman.blogs.nytimes.com/2008/03/11/economics-the-final-frontier/ The Theory of Interstellar Trade]], a paper where he outlines how trade between different star system might work. It does among other things take up how time dilation could affect economics. ''And'' he's a ''[[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer Buffy]]'' fan!

** British scientist Creator/AlanTuring also enjoyed "Snow White", especially the scène where the wicked witch holds the poisoned apple. He even used to quote from her song: “Dip the apple in the brew / Let the Sleeping Death seep through.”. His fascination also has a disturbing afternote: Turing committed suicide the same way by injecting cyanide into an apple and then eat it.

** He also wrote the scripts for the first two ''Film/{{X-men}}'' films, and played a security guard in the first movie.
** And he's also aware of the web-series thing, particularly the ''AwesomeSeries''. When he's in a con with Egoraptor, Hayter was kind enough to use his Snake-voice to say one of the lines in ''Metal Gear Awesome'': "[=OhMyGodHotnessIWannaBangYou!=]"
